If you’re not a Greg Bedard homer around here, you’re just not cool. But, part of being a Bedard homer is realizing that Bedard can take it as well as dish it out when it come to talking Packers. This being the case, I take a very different opinion on the roster and its current state.
In Bedard’s latest article, although well written and extremely thorough, I think the overall picture he paints of the Packers roster is well, kind of bleak. Quite frankly, I think he is wrong.
This is classic realist Bedard here, but there have been other instances in which Bedard seem unconvinced that the Packers are all that. For example, I believe he is on record stating that the Packers beating up on the Eagles by 13 or better is ludicrous at best? If I remember correctly he is also taking all bets on that game. Let me be the first to accept.
I think the Green Bay Packers are going to dominate the Philadelphia Eagles in week one, and for that matter dominate all season if they stay relatively healthy. Yes, there may be some holes on the team, but for the most part I think the Packers have never looked better. The list of descriptive words by folks around the league is amazing. For the first time I can remember terms like elite, breakout, and unstoppable have been echoed by Packers fans and non-Packers fans alike.
This team is good Greg, period. That is with or without any more roster moves. As far as week one is concerned I am more than happy to take your bet. I’ve got two family size Pizza Del Re pizza’s and the six pack of your choice on the table. I personally prefer a good pepperoni and green olive myself, but in place of beer I will be taking water. I don’t want one of those gas station six packs either. I want whatever Packers Ted Thompson drinks in this video.
As far as your 13 point spread goes. I won’t really need to worry about that after the first half.
Cue the Bedard siren.
