    Nobody in car culture ever understands that “they don’t make em like they used to” is survivorship bias.

What I am sorried about is his size and ability to react to the ball covering TEs right up the middle. Certainly he's fast enough, but will his vertical be enough. I know it seems like a minor point, but when the Packers line up against the 49ers, and Hawk gets to cover VD, perhaps then we'll know the answer for sure.

    one thing seems certain - the face and character of the GB Packers looks very different. I can't imagine how the offense will be explosive this year and if Hawk plays as well in the NFL as he did with a loaded defense in college, it should improve the Packer's defense.

    People predicting the draft are like weather forecasters. By the time you figure out they are wrong, its too late to do something about it.
    Seriously, now I am just repeating myself on 3 year cycles.

    If he was so terrible, it should have been easy to fill his spot with any jack off. Yet anyone they put in there doesn't look leaps and bounds better than Hawk. To the contrary, they are worse if for no other reason they are far from dependable.

    So the upshot from MM's comments would be that Dom is near God-like, and Ted should be fired b/c the players suck to high heaven??

    Terrible? Maybe at the end with the ankle/foot injury.

    But after being compared to Urlacher, with athletic measurables to match, he really settled into average for the balance of his career. That is quite a comedown by itself.

    We lost many a good brother and sister over the years.

    Oh well, we lost quite a few assholes, too.
