Middle Of Nowhere Edition: Packers’ Holes, Draft Outlook & More
Even though we’re deep into the offseason, there’s still plenty to talk about when it comes to the Green Bay Packers.
For all intents and purposes, free agency is over. and we’re going to assess the Green Bay Packers’ final moves, the most interesting of which has to be the signing of Ricky Jean Francois.
We’ll discuss the Packers’ remaining holes, including the No. 1 cornerback spot. It’s a spot the Packers had an opportunity to fill and have yet to do so. That is, unless you consider Davon House a No. 1-type guy. He is the default in that role at the moment.
Another hole remains at running back. One of us could care less about that position, while the other thinks the Packers might choose one in the first round of the NFL Draft. That ultimately brings us to Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon, who is an undeniable talent, but also likes to punch women.
If Mixon is there in the first round, do the Packers strike?
Another guy who has a checkered past, Adrian Peterson, has also been discussed by the Packers. Shawn has plenty of reasons why the Packers would be insane to sign Peterson.
Another running back, Eddie Lacy, is a guy the Packers showed the door and then tried to humiliate him on the way out. The way the Packers handled that situation from start to finish was disgraceful. We’ll run down the list of hamfistedness from start to finish.
Also, there’s an elephant in the room. Aaron Rodgers and Olivia Munn are done.
Thank god. We’re not going to rehash the entire relationship, but rather how it has changed Rodgers and how things might look for him moving forward.
And finally, announcers. We managed to work in a short segment on Wisconsin boy Tony Romo in order to say good riddance to Phil Simms.
So long, sucker!
