Vick to the Packers?

Recommended Posts

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.

The fans would rip that dog killer up!!! He wont be going to Green Bay!!!

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…"

    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
