Reporting as Eligible: To Old Friends and New Faces

Matt, Paul, and JR discuss the Aaron Rodgers drama, the causes, the fallout, the love of Jake Kumerow, and what they would do if they were in charge. If you’re curious about the cap ramifications, the true market value, Jordan Love, and Rodgers’ longevity, this podcast is for you. The boys also discuss the draft, the Packers’ non-reliance on RAS, how their picks really seemed to be more for need than “best player available,” how taking Amari Rodgers right between Dyami Brown and Nico...


Reporting as Eligible: Draft Punk

Paul and JR talk all things draft, including the Packers love of big people, the Packers’ greatest positions of need, cornerbacks they should take, receivers they should take, how the draft is like Buffalo Wild Wings for good and ill, Jacob Harris as Jeff Janis, finding Jonathan Marshall while watching Feleipe Franks, Mac Jones and Kyle Trask as Bears, Jordan Love, late round offensive linemen, and how the team may tick us all off by overdrafting a mediocre tight end. Plus, listener...


Reporting as Eligible Draft Special Part 1 - QBOPS and Secret Good Quarterbacks

In this very special episode of Reporting as Eligible, Paul discusses how he goes about assessing quarterback prospects, why QBOPS is more useful than it has an right to be, the two types of prospects, why some guys don’t get the respect they deserve, and why Feleipe Franks and Tyler Huntley were better prospects than most people realize. Paul also discusses how "toolsy" quarterbacks tend to fall more than is often warranted, and how college offense has drastically improved over the last...


Reporting as Eligible - Jonesin' for Jones

On this very special episode of Reporting as Eligible, Paul, Ryan, and Tex discuss the extremely surprising Aaron Jones contract, the short and long term impact on the salary cap, whether Jones is one of those rare cases where it’s worth it, if Jamaal Williams was the smarter play, what this means for AJ Dillon, and exactly how mad Paul will be this week, and for how long. They also discuss the general importance of backs in the Packer passing game, Kyle Juszczyk’s extension, Josiah DeGuara...


Reporting as Eligible - Sports Info Solutions to Sports Ignorance Problems

On this episode of Reporting as Eligible, Paul interviews Nathan Cooper and John Todd of Sports Info Solutions about the Packers big needs in the draft, likely targets, whether Jordan Love was a good idea, if the quarterbacks in the 2021 draft would have been better options, and a bunch of receivers who sounds like they would fill the Tyler Ervin role beautifully. They also preview the 2021 SIS Rookie Handbook, now available, or wherever you buy your yearly sports...


Reporting as Eligible: Barry the Lede

This week, the guys discuss how good Leroy Butler was as a modern, well-rounded safety, and how unimpressive John Lynch was as a concussion machine who garnered the favor of HOF voters through a front office position. Paul also tells the tale of new defensive coordinator Joe Barry’s long and spotty trek to land the job, which mostly involves being friends and relatives with better coaches. In more positive news, Maurice Drayton has the makings of a good special teams coordinator, the team...


Reporting as Eligible: Future Endeavors

Paul, JR, and Matub wrap up the season in a nice little bow by discussing the potential replacements for the deposed Mike Pettine, with special attention on Ejiro Evero, Jim Leonhard, Jerry Gray, and Wade Phillips, even though we know it won’t be him. Paul discusses the difference between Leonhard and Pettine in Collision Low Crossers, Matt touches on why Kris Richard was not one of our favorites, and boy, does Maurice Drayton have his work cut out for him. The guys also answer tons of...


Reporting as Eligible - The Swallowed Whistle

Following the crushing loss to Tampa Bay, Paul, Matub, and JR discuss the future of Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love being bad, and contract restructures before moving on to Will Redmond being bad, and Kevin King being bad, Mike Pettine being bad, Clete Blakeman being bad, Allen Lazard being bad, the tackles being bad, the play calling being kind of bad, Davante being kind of bad, and Tom Brady being terrible. They also did raise the positives like Jaire and MVS, and break down the now famous...


Reporting as Eligible: Devin White Lies

We’re a win away from the Super Bowl! This week following the Green Bay Packers’ utter destruction of Los Angeles, Paul, Matub, and JR review all of the good stuff, praise the spirit, if not the actual decision of JK Scott, check into whether PFF knows what Devin White even does, explores whether pre-snap motion and the pony-pro-set can cure what ailed the Pack against the Bucs, and talk about the big changes from last time, from Allen Lazard to Vita Vae. The guys also compare Drew Brees...


Reporting as Eligible - Bonus Content! - Rams Preview

With the game kicking off shortly, here's a special free minipod. If you're getting set up to watch, making your old-fashioneds, etc, and could use one more preview, pop this on your earbuds and find out just how good the Rams are. Paul previews the best defense the Packers have faced all season. The Rams are #1 in weighted DVOA, they're talented, smart, and peaking at the right time. Can Rodgers and LaFleur solve this riddle, and can Mike Pettine's crew shut down an offense that's likely...


Reporting as Eligible - Kupps and Robbers

This week, Paul, Matub, and JR make fun of the Bears. They also preview the Rams in great detail. Should they attack the Rams deep-right? No! Does Cooper Kupp matter? A lot! Does Jalen Ramsey lock down number one receivers? Surprisingly, no! Find out why all of this is so, plus, the guys figure out who is scarier between a one-handed Goff, a neck-less Wolford, and a talentless Bortles, if the Rams’ defense would be just as good with Packer personnel, why the Tampa game should scare you, why...


Reporting as Eligible - Sweet Georgia Brown, The Packers Win The NFC!

Green Bay wrapped up the number one seed in the NFC, and Paul, JR, and special guest Tex Western discuss just how they did it. Paul rips on David Montgomery, Tex discusses all of the scouting positives that Mitch had coming out of the draft, and everyone relishes how fun it is to smoke Chicago, and the likelihood of getting to do it one more time. The gang also discusses the most valuable Packers, Jaire’s dominance, Aaron’s many many records, the differences between this season and last...


Reporting as Eligible: Remember Stuffing the Titans?

After a convincing win against Tennessee in the snow, JR, Matub, and Paul discuss all of the beautiful things that the Packers did well, whether the defense is for real, the Za’Darius Smith meeting with Pettine, Davante’s greatness catching, Lazard and Valdes-Scantling’s greatness blocking, the real debut of AJ Dillon, and if one great game makes it worth spending a second rounder on a running back. Paul also made a spreadsheet of heavy running backs to see if they’re more valuable in cold...


Reporting as Eligible - Tennesseein’ is Tennebelievin’

Matub, JR, and Paul break down the “All Gas, Some Brake” offense, as the Packers puttered their way towards a nice win over a pretty pesky Panther team. The boys highlight the stars on defense, the problems with Kevin King, and which Packer defenders are most likely to be caught from behind, and why they are bad. They also point out the weight difference between Derrick Henry and Krys Barnes, what would happen if Kevin King tried to tackle him, if Rodgers held a grudge against Lazard, how...


Reporting as Eligible: Mennengitis

This week, following the Green Bay Packers’ relatively narrow win over Matthew Stafford and the Lions, Paul, Matub, and JR discuss why all of the stats seems pretty good despite the game not feeling very good. Special teams plays a major role, but they also weave in pace of play, and how Mike Pettine’s “death by 1000 paper cuts” defense dos not play well with Matt LeFleur’s occasional preference for extended drives. In short, BALL CONTROL IS BAD. Also, is MVS actually good now? Is this the...


Reporting As Eligible: Did the Bears “Lion it up” or “Lions it up?”

This week, Paul, Matt, and JR discuss the convincing win over Philly in spite of the best efforts of the special teams unit, Za’Garius, Kingsley Keke’s sweet moves, and some sad things like Detroit, and Carson Wentz, who is sort of the Detroit of quarterbacks if you think about it. They also talk about Darnell Savage and why man defense may be more of his thing, Tavon Austin stepping in for real this time, whether Tonyan should have more targets, MVS’ sweet blocking, Adams vs. Nelson, and of...


Reporting as Eligible: When Preston, Mitch Turns it Over

This week, Paul, Matub, and JR discuss everything that went right against the Bears, which is pretty much everything. Sure Christian Kirksey is a bit slow, but Davante ate Fuller, Bob Tonyan continued a historic season, Darnell Savage nabbed a few picks, and the Smiths had a reunion and made up. Darrius Shepherd is gone, Tavon Austin is here, and Doug Pederson’s Eagles are the next trash fire on deck. Paul also goes into extreme detail on all of the quarterbacks the Bears could have...


Reporting as Eligible: Sheep and Shepherd

This week following the Green Bay Packers’ heartbreaking loss to the Colts, Paul, Matub, and JR break down the rollercoaster tide that is Marquez Valdes-Scantling, why Darrius Shepherd is on the team, Aaron Jones’ near decapitation, the bad twitter people who wish death on players, Mike Pettine playing people behind the yellow line, Preston in coverage AGAIN, Cordarrelle Patterson and how the Bears could maybe win, Davante’s tall task against Kyle Fuller, the weather, and listener...


Reporting as Eligible - It Runs Through Rivers

The Packers barely beat a bad Florida team helmed by something called Jake Luton, which required an honest-to-god fourth quarter comeback. JR and Paul discuss the important questions: Why can’t this team pass in the wind? What’s up with the vanilla game plan, and is it a trend? How do we feel about David Bakhtiari’s new deal? Are bubble screens fundamentally evil, or can they ever be good? Will Aaron Jones cost himself enough money to make him affordable to the Packers? All of these, plus...


Reporting as Eligible: The Packers Won, Eat at Arby's

Paul, Matt, and JR discuss what meaning can be found in beating a team with absolutely no healthy players. They sing the praises of Davante Adams and Paul discusses some other great things about Davante’s game he had previously dismissed as unimportant. They preview the Jacksonville game, Jake Luton subbing for Gardner Minshew, DJ Chark, Laviska Shenault, and whether the Packer defense can look good against another undermanned offense. Should Malik Taylor get more of an opportunity? Why did...
