Johnathan Franklin's Campaign Video

Johnathan Franklin's Campaign Video

As you may or may not recall, Packers rookie running back Johnathan Franklin stated shortly after being drafted by the Packers that he already had a post-NFL career goal: To be the mayor of Green Bay.

Over at my day job, we thought we'd help out and get the young man started with his first campaign video:

Ditto, and I like Mr. Lacy. The Mayor is a Heckuva nickname as well, let's hope he earns it.

Love it. Great sense of humor. I have this gutt feeling that this kid is going to turn heads. When I read his bio I thought I saw possibly greatness in this guy. I could be dead right!

Franklin is the kind of guy who will not be denied success. When high character and hard work meet talent, look out.

Don't forget about brains! Mmmm, brains.

Man, this guy is quickly becoming one of my favourite players and he hasn't played a snap yet. Just seems genuine and the type of person to stick in green bay for years to come. Hope all this translates to the field?

Totally high character guy, watch his UCLA vids! w/ coach Jim Mora!
Ihe sky's the limit for Franklin!

We'll see how he plays in the preseason, but I like that I don't have any concerns about him keeping his nose clean. Class acts are always appreciated.

Can we at least wait til training camp/when the pads come on to annoint this guy the second coming of Paul Hornung? The unfounded fawning makes me queasy.

Link to where someone did this? I'll wait.

I don't know about comparing him to Hornung, but the Franklin lovefest has been a little over the top IMO.

Forgive my skepticism. I was being hyperbolic. Please forgive me O Nagler, the one and only true Packer Fan, I humble myself before your snark. Teach me! I am laid low.

I love the fact McCarthy wants to commit to the running game!
Franklin will push Lacy just by character.
Ted saw something in coach Mora and Ucla that the rest didn't!
Datone and Jonathan will contribute this yr.!
UCLA a team to watch!

McCarhty roomed Lacy w/ Franklin==Perfect!

Ya isn't workin on my droid either Fitz. But I have already watched all his UCLA videos. If he isn't starting in GB in a couple yrs he will be starting somewhere it.

Sorry guys, we're still having a bitch of time with our mobile integration.

cow42's picture

seems like a good guy/
i still disagree with the pick.
i think they already have a player just like him in Harris.
they would have been fine with Lacy/Harris/Green or Starks.

would have rather they used the pick on Quinton Patton (with Jones leaving after this season).
