Every Packer Hurts

Every Packer Hurts

I'm sick of injuries.

It seems like we are all experiencing a little Déjà vu with the seemingly non stop additions to the Packers injury list this season. It was bad in 2010, but this season is much worse. The Packers just can't seem to get a break.

Luckily I have a lot of free time to sit and think about things like the Packers injury list.

For some reason this afternoon, the song "Everybody Hurts" by REM came into my head today as a possible theme song for the 2012 Packers. It seemed appropriate, as it certainly seems that this season every single player has been listed on the injury report at least once.

The lyrics didn't really fit the idea for the song, as it is about the pain every person feels in their life, not the pain football players experience. So I started thinking about the song as a background for some new lyrics, dedicated to the Packers.

Here are some updated lyrics to the song, as it relates to the injuries the Packers are experiencing this season.

I would offer to sing it, but my fee is far too pricey:

Every Packer Hurts 

"When your line is gone..and you just can't seem to run the ball...Aaron Rodgers stands alone..when you think you've scored win the game...hold on...."

"Don't let James Starks go....was out till Week 5...every Packer hurts....sometimes"

"When your name's Mike just can't stay on the field....that makes three years in a row....oh no..."

"Don't look now, but Clay is down....oh shit, Bulaga's on the ground...every Packer hurts....sometimes"

"Jennings just can't go...but he sure wants to doe...Jennings just can't, no, no, he's a no go..."

"When you're Cedric Benson...Lisfranc is not your friend...Even Woodson's missed time this year...what the fuck?...don't call him Chuck..."

"Bish please...he can't play this year...thank goodness we've got DJ...oh no we don't...he can't play..."

"Every Packer hurts...TJ and Crabtree missed time too...every Packer hurts...sometimes"

"Every Packer hurts...sometimes..."

"So hold on...hold listening Finley? Hold on...Hold on...Hold on...You hear me Randall? Hold on...every Packer Hurts..."
