Eric quote: "we are talking a pro bowl quality player who will take some cap money."

Eric if there was a genuine pro bowl player available in FA who was 30 or under, he may be worth the money, and more important he may be able to help the team. I don't know of any such player this year.

Most teams will do everything possible to keep a player like that. There is the RB from KC who wants out, but do we need another RB?

Hey Jerry,I think Wynn did well enough that they will give him a shot at 2nd behind Jackson.I think you mean Larry Johnson,but,he has been banged up and has had some dis. problems as in suspended ( i believe it was him but could be wrong).
we need to rebuild both lines depth adn an upgrade adn esp a new blocking system on offensive line and new defensiive scheme.i think they will can the d coordinator and maybe go after one of the released HC to be a d coordinator like the former coach in Jacksonville Williams.

First, this season was not a disappointment. Failing to improve on last year is a disappointment. What happened this year was an absolute disaster!

Second, for everyone suggesting that the Packers sign some FAs or replace an assistant coach, etc.: These ideas merely address various symptoms that are the result of the real problem with the Packers. The Packers have been mismanaged. Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy need to be replaced. They were tesponsible for picking and signing the players and coaches that you say are problems. Why do you think they will do any better picking replacements? Ted Thompson has failed to effectively use free agency for the last decade. It is irresponsible to trust him to turn the team around through FA now. The Packers need to do more than address the symptoms. They need to fix the problem! Every fan that wants to see Aaron Rodgers and the Packers be successful should want a new GM and coach.
