Who in the hell were the Green Bay Packers playing on Thursday night. Looked like the goddam Toronto Argonauts to me!
You gonna run Raghib Ismail out there to return some kicks?!
Apparently not. And that’s why my Notre Dame homer Shep would tell me the Packers beat down the Argos on this particular night.
Because no one could stop Ismail and the Golden Dome… except goddam Desmond Howard and his Heisman. Isn’t that right, homey!
Obviously, I don’t know what in the shit to say about the Packers’ first preseason game. More key regular season guys stand around in street clothes then actually step foot on the field.
Rodgers, Matthews, Graham, Bulaga, Perry.
Just some notables who were given the first preseason game off. And that’s fine.
Who gives a shit?
Well, of the actual starters who suited up, I can tell you Davante Adams gave a shit. Perhaps he’ll earn the massive contract! Two catches for 57 yards with a nice long of 48, delivered from — of all people — Brett Hundley.
But then again, Adams was the only guy Hundley could throw to in 2017. Couldn’t throw to Jordy. Couldn’t throw to Cobb. Couldn’t throw to anyone really, as evidenced by his zero touchdowns at Lambeau Field.
If Adams can play with Hundley, he deserves that contract.
Hundley does look somewhat better than last season. I’ll say that. I will also say, this is preseason. Vanilla defense. And Hundley has always looked good in preseason, when healthy.
Maybe the Packers can showcase him for a bit and flip him for a conditional seventh-rounder!
The only surprise to me was that DeAngelo Yancey was a No. 1 receiver with Adams. Randall Cobb didn’t do anything, but that just throws the whole stupid depth chart into chaos.
Let’s be short.
None of us give a shit about this game.
I liked Davante Adams. I liked Jamaal Williams. The cut he made on that TD catch — nice awareness, nice move. And Jake Kumerow — three for 75 and a touch, despite not catching the ball from AR.
Feel free to disagree.
