There is no one more deserving than Corey Linsley

Guys, how much noise can the 6,000 fans make at Lambeau? Do you think this might be enough to disrupt the opposing team’s attack? Either way, I hope that’s enough to bring some extra energy to the team.

I know how I felt inside Lambeau Field without fans for the past four months. I think 6,000 is going to look like 60,000 compared to that, especially after a big game.

Since UDFAs seem to be one of the latest talking points, who do Spoff and Wes think are the 10 best UDFAs of all time for the Packers?

I’m not gonna lie… I’m ready for the weekend, Jeff, so we’ll limit that to my time covering the Packers (2012-present) full-time: Tramon Williams, Ryan Grant, Sam Shields, John Kuhn, Lane Taylor, Robert Tonyan, Allen Lazard, Evan Smith, Jarrett Bush and Barnes.

With Krys Barnes, an undrafted rookie, is he on a one-year contract? Is there a risk that he will be a free agent at the end of the season?

Undrafted rookies remain under the control of the squad they signed with for three years. A UDFA can only sign with a team of their choice if they A) are released and allow waivers, B) signs an offer sheet as a restricted free agent after three seasons in the NFL or C) becomes a acquired veteran (four years cumulative).

Dominique Dafney was asked if he would boast more of running for 255 yards in college, catching his first touchdown pass, or punching a foot turner within minutes of the touchdown. He chose the big hit to prove he was tough! Our kind of player! Hope he has 50 more big hits and 30 more touchdowns!

Dafney doesn’t just pack a punch – he loves to pack a punch. This mentality can keep an undrafted free agent in the league for a long, long time.

At Dafney we have another QB who switched to TE as a pro. Are there enough cases now to qualify this as a trend? Find an athletic QB who isn’t good enough to be a pro QB and transition him or her using your practice squad?

I want to clarify something about this – Dafney was not a quarterback. He was a wide receiver who stepped in as a wild QB due to injuries during the final month of his senior year at Indiana State. That being said, Green Bay has done a fantastic job of finding and developing players who might have been poorly selected or under-recruited at the college level.

The entire interview you all posted with Dominique Dafney made me smile. A young man with a screwed-up straight head and a true love of football. How did this question strike you?

It was one of the funniest Zoom calls we’ve had all season. I know I get a lot of criticism for promoting “underdog” stories, but one of the reasons I enjoy these stories the most is that you are dealing with ordinary people doing very amazing things. As Rodgers said earlier this week, that’s the beauty of this game.

Now that the regular season is over, what impact has not having preseason games had on the Packers? Other than maybe defense, I don’t see any negative impact.

*It reinforces the reason Rodgers and the established veterans probably don’t need to play during the preseason. At the same time, I think Tim Boyle, Jordan Love and all the young bubble players would have benefited greatly from this work. *

Hello! I think we should all be hoping Washington wins against Tampa Bay. That way we play the (worst record) and New Orleans and Seattle have to fight, provided the Bears and Rams lose. What do you think?

Hi Wes! I’m a lifelong reader dating back to the days of Ask Vic, and I love the way you and Mike carried on the inbox! I read it almost every day. The other main Packer-related media that I follow is Tom Grossi’s YouTube channel. It was so great to see two of my favorites team up. It made my day! How long have you known Tom and watched his NFC / AFC East family videos? They are pure gold. I hope you find his hat and that I can see you and Tom doing another podcast soon!

I had a blast making Tom’s Packast. It was one of my favorite interviews I’ve ever done. I’ve known his videos for probably two years, I think. He has such an infectious personality that it makes the show a lot of fun. Now I just need to pass for him with this hat on.
