With free agency looming, it’s important that at this critical point in the team’s history, we bring in “Packer People.”
We have a very young team and are probably easily corruptible. Look at what happened with Javon Walker. He seemed like a fine young man. He was Greg Jennings before Greg Jennings was Greg Jennings. Greg Jennings.
But what happened with Javon? He started hanging out with folks who were definitely not Packer people. Drew Rosenhaus and Terrell Owens are not Packer people and they corrupted young Javon and now Walker is trash, in almost every way. As a person, he’s trash, and on the field, he’s trash due to injuries that might have been avoided had he been focused on football and not partying and being a media whore.
It’s probably a good idea to keep T.O. away from Greg or Ray Lewis away from A.J. Hawk. Some teams have established veteran leadership and can handle bringing in a malcontent or two. The Packers aren’t there yet, which I’m fine with.
So lets remember the cautionary tale of Javon Walker during free agency. Let’s bring in guys with heart like Donald Driver. Let’s bring in the intelligent professionals like Charles Woodson. Let’s bring in guys with perseverance like Aaron Rodgers. Let’s bring in Packer people!
