Green Bay Packers 2008

08/20/2008
The premise is simple. We all know the story.

Brett "Sarah Loves Me" Favre now sports the green and white.

Aaron "The Future" Rodgers has stepped in to lead the team.

Let the 2008 season begin.

Go Pack Go

I don't know how Matt is going to feel having the mantle of "shortest article" taken away from him.

I decided to let the aftermath write the story. I have written it far too many times already.

Who rated this a 5?
I know how Packer fans irrationally give everything 5nuts if it mentions the Packers in any sort of positive light, but this is ridiculous.

Aaron Rodgers gets off to a 1-4 (or 2-3 with 3 particularly awful games) start, getting mercilessly booed for weeks. Week 5 he gets hurt, misses a couple games, comes back, has his worst outing of the season week 7 or 8, snaps, goes on a 3 city killing spree, and Brooks Bollinger finishes out the season for him. (And yes, I know he's currently a Viking)

I mean seriously, do you really want a full-length breakdown of this years off-season? The fact that I left it out should warrant at least five nuts.

As a nutcan blogger and Packer fan, it is horrifying to have to put Packer talk into the Brett Favre interview thread. Now we have a stand alone topic. Although, I think there should be a Packer only subforum as well.

Anyway, here is some video of our new DT Allen signed from the Odessa Roghnecks. Let's see if he makes the team.

I was arguing against the rating, not necessarily the existence of the article. And no, you don't get five nuts for NOT writing things. If you did, Matt would actually be the most beloved writer.

Rather than having a Packer only subforum, we'll create a committee to review the creation of forums, with a subcommittee discussing subforums and a further subcommittee reviewing our policies regarding Packer only subforums.

Yeah, that was great.

I don't know how to equate arena league (that's what it is, right?) success when it comes to how he will play in the NFL. Usually they're not exactly compatible.

I disagree, the best part was at the end when it said he had a 31 foot vertical. Which is quite impressive.

Though not as impressive as his 9.1 unitless broad jump. Not just because it leaves so much to the imagination, but also because we now know how he'll fare if he has to go against Carl Lewis in a mid-game broad jump competition at any time during the season.

Actually, rumor has it we'll get shirts from Parks & Rec for finishing in 2nd place, but they're not in yet.

How'd you hear this rumor? Because if we did that would be sweet.

For being a Packer article, this sure isn't off to a good start in regards to being Packer related.

They called me and told me I could come pick some up and then they called back and said ours weren't in yet but they'd call me when they were.
Of course, they never got size information from any of us, so I imagine we'll end up with about 3 mediums 2 smalls and 9 babydoll t's.

What's wrong with rating something based on one's excitement for the topic?

It looks like the QB actually got quite comfortable during those middle minutes.

I was paying way more attention to the song then the video. Oops. What is up with the broad jump? Shouldn't it list his bench press or something like that instead? Is that his phone number? Is this the actual video he sent out to teams?

For some reason every time I hear that song I expect it to be this mash-up.

It is his phone number. There are rumors he answered it as well.

It's not an article, it is a thread. And yes, yes that would be sweet. Someone can have mine I haven't paid yet.

The Packers rule.

Can't complain about how Rodgers did tonight. I didn't watch the game, but 193 yards and a TD can't be wrong.
