Jimmy Bob from Atlanta, GA
Did the NFL address the national anthem by only raising the cap $10 million?
The cap isn't arbitrary. It is decided by a formula for dividing the league's revenue by 32.
Tyler from Greenfield, WI
About time they let Burnett go. Will never forgive him for falling to the ground after being gifted with an interception and blockers ahead. What is wrong with that guy?
Unfortunately, that play will be a good man's and a good player's lasting identity for what were a lot of good seasons as a member of the Green Bay Packers. Let's not forget, Julius Peppers gave Morgan Burnett the surrender sign.
Nick from Oswego, NY
Who do you think the Browns will pick with No. 1, and who would GM Vic pick for the Browns?
Sam Darnold would be my pick and I think the Browns will pick Darnold. They need to get "The Man." Using the first pick of the draft in pursuit of that player is the best way to do it.
Dave from Madison, WI
Vic, the Packers are on the clock in the first round and the top two players on their board are a pass-rush specialist and a cornerback. Both are rated the same. Who are you taking?
I doubt a pass-rush specialist would be rated high enough to be picked No. 14 overall. I'm looking for an every-down player who can rush the passer. If that guy is available and he's at the top of the Packers' board, picking him would certainly be justified. Pass coverage begins with rushing the passer.
Greg from Cuenca, Ecuador
Pretend you are in a waiting room and there are five magazines in front of you: Sports Illustrated, Forbes, People, National Geographic, Time. In what order would you read them?
The cover would weigh into that decision but, generally speaking, the order would be Time, National Geographic, Sports Illustrated and Forbes. My reading tastes don't include People.
Lee from Marshfield, WI
What does Vic want? Top 10 secondary or Top 10 front seven?
Success begins up front. If you can't stop run, you won't have a chance to stop the pass. If you can stop the run with your front seven, you won't have to involve your secondary in run support, and that'll make them even better in pass coverage. Given a choice between the two, I'll take a strong front seven.
Raquel from Park Falls, WI
The Packers have now said goodbye to Damarious Randall and Morgan Burnett. There have been no additions to the secondary during free agency, which leads me to believe it will be the focus of the draft. However, rookies in the secondary would seem to indicate a rebuilding year? Can the Packers afford to have a rebuilding year in the secondary? They'll get picked apart.
What's the option, stay the same and get picked apart? Brian Gutekunst would seem to be sending a message: The personnel on defense needs to be upgraded. Maybe Dom Capers wasn't the problem, huh?
Dave from Chicago, IL
Vic, why do you think it has historically been a huge challenge for Green Bay to field a dictating defense, while teams like Chicago and Pittsburgh seem to get there much more often? Is there a different focus within the organizations?
Yeah, I think there is. I think the Packers' DNA favors offense, and I think the fans prefer it that way. I can't remember the last time the Packers were involved in a Steelers-Bengals kind of game.
Aaron from Wausau, WI
Vic, has there been a free agency signing you have seen hurt a team for a long time?
I think the majority of high-priced free-agent signings hurt the signing team for a long time. Remember Jairus Byrd? Packers fans wanted to break the bank to sign him. What did signing Byrd do to New Orleans?
Stephen from Jacksonville, FL
What are your thoughts on how the Jaguars used free agency this offseason?
They appear to have spent a lot of money backfilling at nonpremium positions. I guess they did that because they have so much cap money to spend. They've been very aggressive in free agency, without risk of mortgaging the future. I've explained this in past columns. Their situation is unique. The Jaguars were afforded an almost unfair advantage coming out of the uncapped year.
Paulie from Boca Raton, FL
What is your opinion of the 1972 Dophins team and their undefeated season?
It was a great football team that was blessed by an easy schedule -- it was also a 14-game schedule back then -- and an AFC title game on an unusually warm day in Pittsburgh. I don't think it's the best team of all time.
Adam from Wausau, WI
Would GM Vic hire a head coach he knew was the perfect man to turn the team around, but wasn't a role model off the field?
I wouldn't hire a man with an unstable personality, which is what you're describing.
Tim from Jacksonville, FL
I've been dating my girlfriend for two years now and I'm unsure if I should marry her. What advice do you have?
Try it and find out? Tim, marriage is a big step. You're committing yourself to a lifetime of putting up outdoor Christmas lights. Make sure you want to do that before you commit to it.
Matt from Verona, WI
What was the win-to-hug ratio after the last column?
Packers fans are the huggiest fans in all of sports, as evidenced by the Lambeau Leap. They like players who ride kids' bicycles and periodically return to Lambeau Field in retirement to tell everyone how much they love them. Packers fans want to hug as much as they want to win.
Steven from Jacksonville, FL
Do you think the Jaguars will make a Super Bowl within the next two seasons?
Yes, but only if the Jaguars find "The Man." Can Blake Bortles become that player? I think that's the No. 1 question confronting the Jaguars.
Justin from Madison, WI
Vic, it's been two weeks and I've yet to see a Tiger question. What do you make of him being in real contention to win the last two weeks, and of his odds at replicating that feat at the Masters?
His game has recovered, though his driver is still a problem. He can win at Augusta because he's putting well and he knows how to win on that course. What bothers me about Tiger Woods' performance the past two weeks is on both occasions he collapsed down the stretch. That's not the old Tiger.
Jason from Menominee Falls, WI
Is the QB push in the draft going to be enough to push one of the top tier guys Tony mentioned to the Packers at 14?
Yes, the Packers will get their man. They have to make sure they get the right man.
Dan from Cedar Rapids, IA
You recently commented about comparing our current president to Vince Lombardi and how there wasn't a Stormy Daniels in his time. Fair, but the way our current president appears to be treating Stormy Daniels appears to be out of The Art of War. Simply, the media is chasing around Russia, Fire and Fury, and Stormy Daniels; they appear to imply it means something; if it doesn't, they move on to the next thing. Remember all the fuss over North Korea bombing us? Our President is brilliant and knows how to entertain and distract. That is incredibly easy when your opponents are irrational fear mongers who don't use common sense. Is he perfect? Hell no, but he is far from the warmongering Muslim Hitler he was implied to be months before and after his election. My question is, when our President said we/he would "Drain the Swamp," how did you think he/we'd do that? Did you think it'd be pretty? Did you expect "The Swamp" to not fight back? War is deception. When things are caving in and the enemy has you surrounded, you chuck up the rock to No. 80 for the game winner. I see many parallels to our President and Lombardi and Aaron Rodgers, but the person he emulates most is a modern day Sun Tzu. If he (our President) wasn't, then he would've been dealt noticeable defeats and damn sure wouldn't have lasted this long in office.
