Damn, I have a butt load of homework today. But, that doesn’t mean there isn’t time to suck down a Six Pack. Six Packer related stories that are catching my eye.
The Six Pack
1. He says he doesn’t hate Quinn Johnson but the truth is Carriveau does. Just when you thought it was over, the man at the Rail has continued right where he left off after the draft.
“But boy, I sure would like that fifth round draft choice back. Were the Packers in such bad shape at the fullback position when they went ahead and drafted Johnson?”
Brian, you keep saying you don’t hate Quinn, but at the same time you wish we had taken someone else. That doesn’t make sense to me. I understand you were a big Tyrell Sutton fan, but I don’t think that makes drafting Quinn a mistake. Who knows, perhaps Quinn made Sutton look good. Stop hating on the mighty Quinn.
2. I got an interesting Favre tidbit in the mailbox this week. It seems wearing a Favre jersey to a Brewers game is not advised. Now, I don’t condone this type of fan behavior, but keep it up. Secondly, if you are the guy who was supposed to email me a picture, I didn’t get it. Please try again.
3. I know it’s a little early for the Titletown awards, but I officially cast my vote for my favorite blog Packer Ranter. Again, if you aren’t reading Packer Ranter you are missing out. A gem like this, is extremely hard to find.
4. In case you missed it, Bears fans are staying super classy as always.
5. Packer Update seems to have an inside ear to the coaching staff again. According to their made up and unverified sources:
“The coaches are confident that Jarius Wynn has what it takes to start at DE next season. That’s how impressive the rookie was this summer.”
I guess one has to consider that some pretty good news, if it’s actually true.
6. Finally, it’s not looking good for rookie B.J. Raji to be playing in the opener. Raji, who is suffering from an ankle injury didn’t test out very well yesterday. According to Mike McCarthy:
“It did not go as well as we would have hoped.”
There is a silver lining in that Johnny Jolly has been playing lights out, but if this trend continues, it could seriously come back to bite the Packers in the rear end.
