Vick to the Packers?

22 posts in this topic

Packers GM Ted Thompson is "looking at all options". He wouldn't elaborate anymore if they're serious about opening a new dog kennel in Green Bay.

That's interesting. I thought they had a good up and coming back in Rogers? He could be a decent backup, who knows and maybe they would use him in different positions in the offense. I still wouldn't want him on my team.

How many teams in the past couple of weeks have said the same thing? Typical non-committal answer to the media.

That's just how you try to play the media's game on your own terms. The media, the sources and the fans (readers) all know how to read between the lines.

If Rodgers goes down, there's nobody but the butcher's wife's sister's son to step in at QB. And we know the Packers organization understands how to handle the drama of media attention, don't we?

Who let the dogs out? gringringrin

I don't think it would happen either. I just found it funny that the Packer's GM is playing into the drama as if he didn't have enough of the Favre saga.

If you ask me, Thompson seems like a (can't say it on here) and about 99% of the Packs problems.

heard on radio this morning that vikes MAY HAVEintereset in vick. i believe he deserves another chance. i would like to see vick hear, but like others said on the farve thread dont think his style of play fits for the vikes. another sports editor and radio personality also said dont be a bit surpised if farve signs right before real season starts.

Listening to the ever trustworthy ESPN radio and the commentator thought there was a good chance of the Pack picking up Vick for a one year contract if the price was right. I don't see it happening but then again I don't have any idea who the Pack has as backup QBs.

Didn't it just come out the pack was also looking at someone else for a starter? Not showing much faith in Rogers and looking too start another Denver Debacle.

I think you're confused, it's the Vikings looking for a starting Q-Back! Rogers has no worries about playing every week. The guy is going to be much better than Favre, maybe already is! smile

Sorry, not confused. Just a little short on memory. There was talk the Pack was looking at a Veteran QB other than Vick.

Maybe he could compare notes with those fans that killed Devine's dog.

Rogers is safe. He was a top 10 QB his first year playing w/ better stats than Favre. They would never sign Vick because of the PR nightmare. If they did, he would be used as slot receiver and situational wildcat/option RB.

What fans were those? But hey, if you don't know what you're talking about, don't let that stop you.

Relax Snooze. I do realize that the story is controversial and much is out there that says the fans did not do it. I apologize if I struck a chord in your green and gold heart but if I am not mistaken we all will take some jabs at the other side. If I would have put a laugh next to it would you have felt better?

Besides, if they only allowed posts to those who actually knew what they were talking about this entire sports forum would see about two posts a week. laughgrinshockedeekwinksmilewhistle (I think I covered all the potential interpretations with these)

No controversy about it.

Quote:
Devine offered a detailed explanation in his autobiography, published in 2000. He acknowledged that his dogs wandered freely and created mischief; one turned up wounded during hunting season and was nursed back to health.

“Rumors circulated that some disgruntled fans or anti-Devine people had shot my dog,” he said in the book. “I honestly don’t believe that was what happened.”

“We weren’t so lucky with another one of our dogs,” Devine continued. “It was only a couple days later, ironically, when the dog wandered over to a nearby farm and began chasing the farmer’s ducks. The farmer, a neighbor who we knew very well, fired a gun at the dog, intending to scare him and get him away from his ducks. Well, the bullet happened to hit the dog and killed him. He had every right to shoot at the dog, and he knew it and I knew it.

“Still, he felt terrible about what happened. I saw him walking toward our house, carrying the dead dog in his arms, crying uncontrollably. He kept saying, ‘I didn’t mean to kill him,’ and I knew that was true. Still more rumors spread, even though it was a total accident, and that night I was down at his house, playing basketball with his kids."

“All those rumors reflected badly on the good people of Green Bay. Most of the people we met were genuine and nice to us…"

    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.
