First and foremost I am so sick of Brett Lorenzo Favre. But apparently you people aren’t. What I don’t understand is who gives a rat’s ass about a guy who hasn’t played for the Packers in two years and hasn’t played well for anybody in eight years. This is just astonishing and really reflects bad on Packers’ fans. Why you people can’t get over this is simply beyond explanation. It makes no sense. I urge all Packers’ fans to simply let the Favre lovers (and Packers haters) rant all they want but just don’t give them the satisfaction of a response. The Packers are primed for a great year and we shouldn’t be letting these bozos change the subject to Favre every two seconds. As John Rambo would say “Let…it…go!”
The Packers have playmakers at every key position and will have a new-and-improved defense to go along with one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. That is what we should be talking about. Favre is the Vikings headache now and just like last year in New York it can only end badly for him. But who cares? Only Favre lovers. And I don’t care what anybody says, there is no middle ground. Either you are with us – the real Packers fans, or you are with the terrorists, oops, the Favre lovers. Quit to trying to walk the line, because you can’t. Packers’ fans have moved on to bigger and better things, Favre fans are still harping over the events of last summer when Ted Thompson wouldn’t give into their brat from Mississippi. There is nothing worse than a Favre fan scorned.
I have to admit that I am laughing every day at the mess this already making of the Vikings. Their locker room is already divided over whether or not they should bring in Favre and the media frenzy that will follow it will only be a huge distraction. I can’t wait to watch it unfold. I just wish I could come to Packernet and talk Packers for a change. It’s up to you all, you can keeping talking about it but I’m sick of reading it, so I won’t. Say what you want, act like babies and call each other names, do it all. I don’t give a crap anymore. I haven’t blogged about Favre since May 5 and this will be my last blog entry ever about a player that doesn’t play for the Packers. You can try and egg me on but I will not comment, in fact I highly doubt I will even read any of the comments I get from this entry unless somebody complains about a vulgar post or something.
The bright side of all of this is that other than the Nick Collins and Aaron Kampman mini-controversies, there is very little to talk about in Packerland right now. Things are progressing nicely with the new defense and with running back Ryan Grant attending all the offseason activities, the offense should be even better than the unit that ranked 8th in the NFL last year even though they were only 17th in rushing. Add another season from Grant like he had in 2007 and the Packers are back in the playoffs for sure and Rodgers is a Pro Bowl selection. I’m really looking forward to seeing both play this year.
Like last year after Thompson made a huge mistake in cutting punter Jon Ryan, the Packers weakest position is again punter. Thompson needs to find a veteran, no matter how many rocks he has to overturn, the team simply can’t afford to go through another season like they did last year at that position. I was not thrilled with kicker Mason Crosby’s sophomore performance and giving him a little competition could only be a good thing as well.
Come on Packers’ fans, lets move on and worry about things that actually affect the team. If you can’t do that, I feel for you, but there are plenty of places you can get help. Admitting you have a problem is the first step. Good luck.
