    Re: Josh Lenz

    As a impartial Cowboys fan looking at the NFC North the Packers have the best WR corp by far. The only argument you can make against them is they have the best QB in the division throwing to then while the other 3 teams have meh QB's. But that is not much of an argument.

    Gee, you don't think some other factor may be at play there, other than the quality of the WRs?

    Not necessarily even disagreeing with you... Just saying to use that as proof for your argument is ridiculous

    Re: Josh Lenz

    So, what does all this have to do with Josh Lenz? Is there some point I'm not seeing about how this helps/hurts his chances?

    With the numbers he put up at his Pro Day I think he has a shot. There's obviously more to it that talent, but he's a hard worker and reliable too.

    Do you have other self abuse tendencies? If so, you should seek professional help.

    Jennings may not look as good now that he will be on the receiving end of passes from Ponder.

    Green bay has the best wideouts in the North. It's not even close.
    They also have arguably the best QB. Put Rodgers on the Lions, and Stafford on the Packers, and I bet the Lions have the edge.

    Re: Josh Lenz

    Well I hope he makes the team because if he does I'm gettng his jersey. Bears WR's have been plagued by injuries lately. Bennett is good, but hasn't played nearly a whole season lately, Alshon Jeffrey was looking promising too, but also went down last year. After the top three of Marshall, Bennett, Jeffrey, it's a free for all I think, but there are 12 WR's on the roster right now, so there' a lot of competition.

    You make a compelling argument. But stats don't lie. Those receivers still have to catch the ball and run after the catch. Rodgers just makes it easier for them. I'm sure he would make the Lions receivers better as well. Peyton is another QB that you see this happen all the time with. Brandon Stokley comes to mind. When he was with Peyton, Peyton made him better, as soon as he was with another QB he wasn't as good. Jevon Walker - once he left the Packers he didn't contribute on the Broncos at all. So yes, it can be the system that makes the player better. But, it is stated as a whole, which team has the best core. Stats say Packers.

    yes, Rodgers is better than the other guys, but look at the disparity. Is he that much better? The Packers have more than double the number of WR TDs than the next best team. Certainly Rodgers accounts for some of that, but that's a giant difference. (uggh, I feel dirty arguing for Green Bay)

    Re: Josh Lenz

    How did this devolve into a "how great is Aaron Rodgers?" thread?

    Lenz could make the team on Special Teams and maybe be a backup slot receiver. We know he has wheels. Would not be a bad thing for him to get Coached up on the practice squad for a year either.

    Re: Josh Lenz

    I think Rodgers is overhyped and Packers receiving corps underhyped. Who was their backup who played a game, had fabulous numbers, and then a big contract from someone, maybe the Seahawks? Lots of qbs in the league would have better numbers if you stuck them in the Packers offense.

    The Bears have needed more depth in their receiving corps as long as I can remember. Difference between them and Packers seems that if you shut down the Bears best receiver, the others aren't reliable whereas someone like Jordy Nelson put up huge numbers as another option from as premier receiver. Maybe Lenz can be an additional threat?

    Russell Wilson has wheels and is accurate as a passer. No surprise.

    I think it is interesting how close Josh's Dubuque family is to Chicago. Hope it works.
