Drop any on- or off-topic ideas this weekend within the feedback down under.

Right here’s a query I’ve for you all:

What are you most enthusiastic about for the upcoming season? Personally, I’m hopeful that we’ll get some solutions on the younger passing recreation in 2023. Exterior of the New Orleans Saints, who’ve a laughable lead above the remainder of the league, no crew has pushed extra cap hits ahead within the 2020-2022 seasons than the Inexperienced Bay Packers. Common supervisor Brian Gutekunst remains to be borrowing cap {dollars} from the longer term to pay for at this time’s payments after he transformed the salaries of David Bakhtiari, Jaire Alexander, Preston Smith, Kenny Clark, De’Vondre Campbell and others to signings bonuses this offseason.

2023 isn’t a tough reset 12 months, at the very least judging by the crew’s monetary choices. As an alternative, it’s actually a smooth touchdown scenario the place the crew goes to guage if the 2024 crew is ready to compete for playoff competition. Subsequent 12 months, the crew should determine in the event that they need to hold what they’ve collectively or in the event that they lastly need to change into cap solvent.

Whereas it’s been claimed by head coach Matt LaFleur that the crew goes to take quarterback Jordan Love’s first season because the crew’s signal-caller gradual, the truth is that Love and his younger receivers — notably the trio of Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed — might want to carry out nicely in 2023 to maintain the continuity in 2024. The added strain of a draft class that features two blue-chip quarterback prospects in USC’s Caleb Williams and North Carolina’s Drake Maye provides Inexperienced Bay choices.

I’m completely happy that, barring harm, the Packers will get an early reply on if this younger passing recreation unit goes to work nicely or not. From there, hopefully, we’ll get some readability on what the crew’s plans are shifting ahead.
