[tps_title]10. James Campen[/tps_title]
Yes, the Packers current offensive line coach once played for the team. James Campen was a Plan B free agent signing in 1989. Campen only started one game that season, but became the team’s full-time center in 1990, starting all 16 games.
He served in that role for two more seasons before being replaced by another guy on our list in 1993. Other than his current role, Campen’s greatest claim to fame is that he snapped the ball to Brett Favre in the quarterback’s first regular-season game as a Packer.
Great list, though Eugene Robinson should be on it.
RIP- The Minister of Defense – the best defensive player I’ve ever seen (and Lawrence Taylor and his coke habit and his 16 year old prostitutes can kiss my ass).
How can you criticize TT’s lack of free agency splashes when he’s made 2 of our best three signings ever. Besides, big name free agents are virtually always overpaid. He makes his moves opportunistically, and this list is evidence of that.
Did you get beat up by frank Winters for calling him names?
Lol, I was wondering the same thing; good ol’ Frannkie-Bag-o-Donuts.
Wasn’t Robinson a trade pick up? It is a shame Sean Jones couldn’t have hung around one more year. He wouldn’t have gone all pussy against Denver like that fucking turd Gabe Wilkins.
Reggie was told by “God” to come to the promise land! George Washington played a role also. Uncle Teddy is a mystery. I don’t know Teds tactics, personality is zero, his presence in a room can’t be much. He does not let a nickel get by him. I envision his approach as dry insurance salesman pitch, no fucking emotion. Loosen up Ted, get a bottle of Crown and blow the joint up with a free agent. Maybe getting them plowed would help our chances. When they wake up with a good Wisconsin hang over with a contract taped to their forehead.. To late
Crown Royal ? The only gossip i’ve heard is that TT frequents a local convenience store on the way home to pick up a 6 pack.
A few beers at home behind closed doors. Ted obviously walks the walk.
Isn’t it amazing that Sean Jones and Reggie White put up so many sack numbers from the defensive line? Does any linemen do that anymore? I’ve got to say DL linemen have become major pussies in the NFL. None of them have the “man strength” like these guys anymore, well almost none of them. Or is it that offenses have become too fast to let these guys have a chance to make the plays in the backfield at this level?
The Minister, as he should be reverently known by the proletariat, was a 4-3 defensive end, they are built fore to rush the passer than 3-4 ends. The 3-4 defense is now the prevalent scheme in as it the NFL, as such, there are more 3-4 ends built to stop the pass. Having said that how many of these guys would you call pussies:
Jared Allen, John Abraham, Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck, Jason Pierre Paul, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Julius Peppers, Elvis Dumervil, Mario Williams, Jason Smith, J.J. Watt, Geno Atkins, Haloti Ngata, Sopoaga?
“Reggie, this is God. I want you to go to Green Bay.”
I don’t know about the rest of you but I can’t stand the lack of free agency moves by TT. There are alot needs that could of address that Ted is being a cheap about. He need to realize that you just can build through the draft.We have the cap space? After read Tom Crabtree dealing I think he needs to spend money or we are not even going to the playoffs.
Today’s USA Today analyst gives the Packers’ free agent performance an A for playing tight with who’s out there and saving the money for Matthews, Raji, and Rodgers. Make of it what you will.
