    So Pickett blows it up and Foster walks in for a TD anyway. Guess it takes all (or, at least most) 11 guys for a defense to function.

    It is crazy how much quicker pickett is off the ball than raji. and the thing is raji has the ability to fire of the ball. we have all seen it a time or two. just wish it could be more consistent. this will be picks last year in green bay most likely, unless he comes back on a short term cheap deal, but he has been a great packer.

      Raji hurt his ankle badly in the Detroit game and was not the same the rest of the season though. Lack of NT depth hurt down the stretch. Not signing Guy to roster from the practice squad and let him go to the Colts was a stupid mistake.

    Pickett is a stud, I’ve been on the “big grease” train since he got here. Great dl, great personality.

    First off, he’s the only truly effective NT the Packers have. I’m on record as saying I think Raji isn’t a NT, he’s miscast.

    However, to be fair, Pickett’s explosion off the line as seen above are both in situations where he’s given the green light to penetrate the line, he’s shooting a specific gap. For instance, in the Lions’ clip, Pickett is straight out rushing (“Jet” assignment for you fancy lads) and Raji is tasked with eating up blockers and setting the line- hence why Raji looks slow off the ball compared to Pickett. Raji has to read and react to the OL, Pickett gets to just GO.

    Pickett is still an excellent DL. I see no reason he won’t continue being a Packer for another couple years. Hes as good as he’s always been. Everyone afraid he’s 33 and need to get his replacement. Hogwash! Resign him for 2 or 3m per for another 2 yrs and go from there. We don’t need another DT we need a true 34DE!

    I’ve always called him the Pickett Fence,and with good reason. Been a stalwart of that defensive line for years.

    he’s a 1 man wrecking crew, does a great job.
