I’m not going to talk about the off-season, but I am going to again disagree with Bill Johnson’s point on Green and Gold Today that Nick Barnett would be the first LB to go since he isn’t really “Packer people.”
Are you kidding me?
Obviously Bill is still out at Nick’s former bar drinking, because outside of that one relatively minor incident, Barnett as been nothing but Packer people for years.
The man keeps his home and family in Green Bay.
He donated $50,000 to charity this year, and let Packer fans choose who to give it to.
He avidly responds to Packer fans on Twitter and has encouraged others to do the same.
He played in the Donald Driver charity softball game even though he couldn’t run.
He stated openly he wants to be a Packer for life.
That’s just what I can remember from this year alone, Bill. Maybe if you took the time to sit and talk with the guy like the rest of Packer nation, you might be able to make a better assumption about who is or isn’t Packer people on this roster.
We had guys in strip clubs, guys accused of harassment, guys facing felony drug suspensions, and God only knows what else I am forgetting.
What I’m not forgetting is that Nick Barnett wasn’t involved in any of those conversations, and hasn’t been in quite some time.
I don’t know what football talk has yet to be had, but one thing I know for sure is that no decisions are going to be made because Barnett isn’t Packer people.
