Winkler is the only one that gets it.  The rest think they are passing along some valuable service.  Winkler admits the con job at least

I can honestly say I’ve never called a sports talk radio station.  I don’t even listen to Winkler but have heard enough to know he doesn’t take any of it as serious as the other mouth breathers in this state

I think Wilde and Tauscher are "fine" but in general I can find better things to listen to

It’s really bad. I am a fan of Wisconsin sports teams, but whenever i am in the car, I listen to Chicago stations.

Chicago stations are not better.

Thing about sports talk radio, is they have to walk a fine line between being controversial (so you keep listening) and being reasonable.

Stephen A Smith has been the absolute best at this for over two decades.  He doesn't believe half his takes, but he doesn't have to.  He only has to have an argument that keeps you talking about him.  And watching.

Boers and Bernstein were the good standard.  Bernstein’s political rants became too much but they were great

Packers benefit from the weak NFC North in their schedule ever year . Games against Division winner games will be tough as usual .

Hoping the Packers can sign one of the free agent  wide receivers still on market to fortify their roster

Ian Rapoport says Julio Jones , OBJ and Jarvis Landry are possibilities because their price came down

Have to figure those guys want to play with a QB focused on winning, not stats

5th?  In the NFC North, I’d guess

They have to learn how to beat the Bears if they wanna move up in that Division.

Allen Lazard holding out, wants a long term contract. Not at Mandatory Mini Camp. Technically because he has not signed yet he is not required to show up. More reps for the younger guys.

Well, if there was ever a time he’d have some leverage, it’s now.

No, not really.  40 receptions can be replaced fairly easily.  Cobb, Watkins, Watson could easily be the starting 3 if Lazard wants to be greedy. 

Having said that, he should be/been working on a deal for the last year.  Not sure why this is even called a hold out though.  Since he wasn't required to report yet.

How does a guy with no contract hold out?

I guess I’m not banking on Cobb and Watkins playing together more than 8 games. Plus, he might not have a ton of leverage, but this is probably his best position to negotiate.

I still think the Packers grab someone like Julio. He has his own injury problems, but it feels like the Packers are still thin on talent there. I’m guessing Jones and the TEs are more involved in the passing game.
