March 6, and I’m bored.
I hate this time of the year. The time in between the NFL Combine and the Draft is such a dead period, and I am having trouble filling the time.
Part of the problem is the current labor issues in the NFL. It is depressing to read all of the worst case scenarios that exist. I break down the year into sections, the NFL year nicely filling in the gaps of the year with yearly events (the draft, mini camp, OTA’s) through the spring and summer, leading into training camp. Right now, there could be a draft, and that’s it for a while. That sucks.
To occupy myself, I could sit and look at all of the prospects for the draft, reviewing tape, combine stats, and trying to piece the puzzle of what the Packers needs are, but that just isn’t my thing. I’ll leave that to the experts. The only thing that is certain is that between April 28-30, the Packers will draft 6-8 former college players who will attempt to contribute to a Super Bowl defense in 2011. And in typical Ted Thompson fashion, one of those picks will leave people scratching their heads, with only a select few knowing the reason why that player was drafted, and the rest of us to shake our heads and keep repeating “In Ted We Trust.”
The draft is still 7 weeks away, far too long. So what else is there? What do I do to stay busy?
The NBA? How about not.
Baseball? I don’t even look at the standings until June
College basketball? Never got into it
See the problem here?
I need my NFL fix. I need my Packers fix. Right now.
