Unfortunately, the last Packer player has left the NFL playing field for the season. It’s always a sad day when that happens best combated with a fresh six-pack.
I am going to preface this six-pack with the following observation and explanation to people who think this should be a better “news” site. Just for the record I did a google search on the Packers for the last week and as usual the same thing always happens. Your strict Packer news always originates in four spots. The Green Bay Press-Gazette, The Milwaukee Journal, Bill Huber, and Jason Wilde. That’s it folks.
And people wonder why I get pissed when they ask me to give them more news. Here’s some news for you, there isn’t any.
It’s all about opinion now.
The Six Pack
Tone: Slightly bitter for some reason.
1. When I get like this it always seems to come back to Nagler. He wrote a piece on the best quarterback in NFL history. Nagler came to the decision that Johnny Unitas should hold that distinction. Now he may be right, but he has no business making that call especially when the victor is a guy who he never saw play a game in real time.
If you weren’t there to experience both the play and the vibe of the times, you can’t make that judgement. Besides, everyone knows that Joe Montana is the greatest quarterback of all time, period.
3. If you don’t read Green Bay Packer Nation, you should start. Brady Augustine knows his shit. He usually takes an analytical approach that you almost never see here. This Aaron Rodger’s analysis in right on the money.
4. Where the hell is Jersey Al and Greg C.? If anyone actually misses these guys, let them know in the comment section. For what I pay them, we should be getting some quality articles and analysis here.
5. I picked this one up from the dudes at the x4 forum, one of personal favorites. If you use Hulu, they now have an awesome section of Green Bay Packers video.
6. I will practice a little bit of what I preach here, sort of. Anyway, Packer Chatters has an article about Kurt Warner not really being a hall-of-famer. This could ultimately be true, however I don’t agree with their reasoning. Brett Favre had plenty of bad seasons too. When the Packers decided that Favre should be benched for Rodgers, he cried and went somewhere else. Kurt Warner never said a word.
