    I wish we could be a collective nfl gm.
    I was listening today to Pittsburgh talk radio and how the Steelers can’t draft a corner to save their life.....They were talking about how Tomlin sees workout warriors that have size and speed and “you can’t teach that”....But Tomlin keeps thinking he can teach these gym short studs how to play football.....Almost every corner the Steelers have drafted recently has failed..Start drafting football players.... A 4.6 guy that understands the game vs a 4.4 guy that doesn’t is way more valuable.....GD, these GMs suck

    It really is insane how they all repeat the same mistakes every year. Every year all of the clichés get spewed out to hype up black players and they run a fast 40 - the predictable go to line is "you can't teach speed". It's beyond frustrating at this point and comical that these "experts" can't seem to stop putting inflated stock into a straight line speed test.

    For a lot of DWFs and MSM media types athleticism is defined by the 40 time and only the 40 time. Apparently that applies to a lot of scouts and GMs too.

    It's looking like GB will start two rookies along OL. Royce Newman as mentioned, has impressed at LG. Next to him will be Josh Myers at Center. The third blue collar OL they drafted this year In Cole Van Lanen looks to be a backup G/T! Jon Runyan is battling it out with the incumbent, Lucas Patrick at RG. Some good young Snowplow talent up North.

    First game of the season moved to Jax FL and out of Haiti North due to basically the collapse of the country, but I'm sure someone in LA will run an extension cord from someplace and get the games back in town for later this year. I also looked at the Packers' PS, yep lot a White men but all approved caste positions, so I skipped posting the obvious.

    Ida left Haiti North (New Port-au-Prince) without electricity so they've all gone to the neighboring state and bought out all the supermarkets and gas stations. I have sympathy for those people and don't wish that on anyone, but the adjacent area in the neighboring state isn't set up to take all these extra hundreds of thousands of people and it has, at least for the present time, ruined an economy not built for that many people.

    The same narrative "tiny town" shows you how provincial and lazy the morons of the media are.

    Can never address the racial element. Always a common factor in these type of articles.

    Or how they just use the same recycled clichés because they all write from the same script - whether it's journalism or marketing - every commercial has the same themes, every news broadcast is parroted across the country when it comes to the local news. The mainstream media is all the same too. Not easy to figure out if you have the ability to thinking critically as @Freethinker has stated.

    Packers and relationship with Za'Darius Smith is rapidly declining. They just put him on IR and have signed a Ladarius to replace him.

    Hopefully Sternberger can still catch on with another team. Can't blame the Packers for this as they've developed Tonyan while Sternberger was injured or just not producing. He definitely has a lot of talent, would be a shame if he washes out of the league:

    Packers waived TE Jace Sternberger.
    Sternberger opened the year serving a two-game suspension but will be available to play immediately if he lands elsewhere. The former third-round pick finishes his stint in Green Bay with 12 receptions for 114 yards and one score. He'll have the choice to join Green Bay's practice squad if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

    Yeah Sternberger has been his own worst enemy since entering The League. Nagging injury after injury and then the suspension for PEDs/Coke? Doesn't help. A change of scenery might be the best thing for him at this point. He was a Beast at A&M!
