Kevin King And Tra Carson Are Done

Kevin King and Bashaud Breeland

Like Nick Perry, cornerback Kevin King is made of glass. And like Perry, the Green Bay Packers ended King’s season on Wednesday by putting him on injured reserve. Joining him there was running back Tra Carson.

This is the second season in a row King has been sent to IR. And that’s notable since he’s been in the league for just two years. King played nine games as a rookie before landing on IR with a shoulder injury. He managed just six games this season. The official injury this time is… wait for it… hamstring!

If the Packers could ever solve their hamstring epidemic, they might actually be a good football team again.

King will finish the year with 17 tackles and one interception.

Carson was called up from the practice squad when the Packers dumped Ty Montgomery on the Ravens. He played in four games and two special teams tackles is what we got from him.

Meanwhile, two roster spots. The Packers claimed two guys on waivers to fill those spots. Those guys are defensive end Fadol Brown from the Raiders and defensive back Natrell Jamerson from the Texans.

You can’t really tell me the tank isn’t on anymore.

Brown was an undrafted free agent this year. He’s had 17 tackles on the season, but more importantly, he played for the Raiders, who are garbage.

Jamerson played at Wisconsin and was a fifth-round pick by the Saints. They waived him in September and he’s been with Houston since. Until they waived him this week. He has seven tackles on the season.

This kind of stinks like Kobe Bryant’s last year with the Lakers. Okay, Byron Scott, you have one job. Just do whatever Kobe wants and then we’ll fire you after the season.

Okay, Joe Philbin, just do whatever Aaron Rodgers wants and then we’ll fire you after the season.

Am I wrong?

    Joseph….As long as Rodgers is in there, no one is tanking.

    Tanking entails a team of people looking to lose. There probably isn’t a feeling of a whole lot of job security sans Rodgers, Bahk, Adams, and Jones. The team, could somewhat tank by taking Rodgers out but…..

    Are you going to tell these other players to play bad enough to lose? Those players need a job and a paycheck. Their potential future employees watch game tape to evaluate them in hiring decisions, are these players going to play bad and jeopardize their future so the Packers can move from a 12th pick to a 5th pick?

    C’MON MAN

    Is it possible Ted Thompson was a better GM than Gutes? Why not…they are all clueless good ‘ol boys anyways.
    Fans wanted TJ Watt, we get Kevin King.
    Fans wanted Derwin James, we get Jaire (who’s admittedly good but not Derwin James good).
    Stretch back even further and I wanted Travis Kelce from Cincinnati and we take Eddie “China Food” Lacy instead.

    I would’ve drafted three Pro Bowlers without deep knowledge of college players which NFL exec’s enjoy on limited YouTube game tape and NFL evaluations alone.
    Hilarious!!!
