This sort of reminds me of when the Green Bay Packers signed Julius Peppers. There was a photo of Peppers walking around Lambeau Field with a big smile on his face.
In my mind, that smile said something like, “Finally, I get to wash off the stench of losing by playing for a real football team.”
Peppers had just spent four seasons with the Chicago Bears, after all.
Earlier this week, the Packers signed defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois. I don’t figure he’ll have the sort of impact Peppers did, but the sentiment appears to be the same.
“Wow, this is what winning and tradition look like.”

Francois just spent the past two seasons with Washington. And yes, I am aware that they have won Super Bowls in the past, but you have to go back to 1991 to find the last one of those.
In recent years, all Washington has done is rival the JV Cleveland Browns for the most dysfunctional organization in football.
And that’s quite a feat.
No doubt Belichick is secretly taking notes from our own Ted Thompson. Ted isn’t fucking around this year in free agency. We got a defensive lineman from the Washington Redskins famed defense.
RICKY JEAN FRANCOIS……..SCORE!!!
Call me crazy, but i think this season’s defense is going to rival the 2010 defense.
Just when all you slackers were trying to write Ted off, he goes and does something like this, and totally redeems himself!!
He can look at those trophies all he wants, but he isnt winning one this year
Without Rodgers the Packers are also another Cleveland look-a-like that haven’t won a SB since the nineties.
