…with Donald’s Designated Driver about the tiresome nature of hearing from various Packer fans and bloggers about the dire need for the Packers to bring in Vonnie Holiday for a workout, if not sign him outright.
Look, I though grabbing Holiday or Kevin Carter several weeks ago was not a bad idea. Now? No doubt teams will see how the draft plays out and then approach guys like Holiday to fill out their rosters. As DDD points out, the rest of the league isn’t exactly tripping over themselves to sign Holiday right now either.
I understand that DDD and I might be making more than is necessary of one line in a single a blog post, but it’s not the only place I’ve read it and I’ve had many, many friends who are Packer fans say similar things about Holiday. I just think that the implication that the Packers are negligent in their duties because they work out a basketball player who they’ve never seen play the game of football but don’t bring in a veteran like Holiday, a player that the Packers have literally hundreds of hours of tape on, is absurd.
