A Gift From Eat More Cheese

A Gift From Eat More Cheese

As a fan of the Green Bay Packers, I have the same concerns that many of you do thus far in preseason.

The Packers are 0-2 in the preseason.

The starting offense has not looked quite like the juggernaut it was in 2011.

Graham Harrell has looked nothing like the former backup QB, Matt Flynn.

They are decimated by injuries.

They have no running game.

Some of their backup offensive linemen leave a lot to be desired.

High draft picks have been a little slow out of the gate.

Mason Crosby missed a field goal.

I'm sure I missed a few of the concerns that are floating around out there. Please let me know what the other issues are.

Well,  I'm always thinking of fellow Packer fans.

I was cleaning out my garage this morning, and I came across something I wanted to share with all of you. It is appropriate considering the somewhat dismal showing the Packers have given their first 2 preseason games.

Here is my gift to all of you:

 

 

I would advise everyone to cut this out, and keep it handy. Every time a player throws a bad pass, or drops a pass, or misses a tackle, or commits a penalty, push the button with the vigor of a thousand fans, making sure everyone knows you are worried about your Green Bay Packers.

Just remember to say the following mantra after pressing the panic button:

It's still preseason.

Yes it's still just pre-season, but I took note that the coaches were not happy - McCarthy and Capers (and the rest of the defensive coaching guys up with him) looked like their respective dogs had been shot. They don't appear to like what they've seen, and if we're supposed to trust their judgement, and I think they are judging things are not good, then I will as well. Perhaps the standards are high and so it's a relative thing, but there was a degree of gravity to their demeanors that says more than anything else.

And I'm not worried so much about this year, I think there's enough to at least make the playoffs in 2012 even if it's not in great style, but for the future sustain of the team. The Packers have suffered a drain on their potency with the injuries and a lot of draft picks of the last two years don't seem to be panning out. The "next man up" are those guys of the 2nd and 3rd string and if they look bad now against other 2nd and 3rd string, the 2014/2015 Packers don't look they're going to be good. This also needs to be seen in light of Rodgers soon to be taking a bigger bite of the payroll, so if things are thinning now, what's going to happen when the Pack lose a blue-chip salary's worth of payroll going to the star QB? We need some solid core guys that are going to develop decently and while some look o.k. there is a thin feel to the depth that isn't going to be helped come Rodgers' next deal.

Put another way, do people remember the pre-seasons where the #2's could push around the other team, as well as the #3's? That's where the sustain the last 4-5 years was coming from. But that doesn't seem to be there now and will be felt a few short years down the line.

This team is built to win now. And just making the playoffs is not going to be accepted. It's one of the dangers of winning the Super Bowl-expectations are raised to astronomic levels
