Once long ago, there was a sports commentator named Grantland Rice. He said this:

"For when the great scorer comes to write against your name, He marks not that you won or lost but how you played the game"

Something has to be said about the fact that Ted Thompson has spent $0.00 over the course of free agency so far. Also, it's a good place to insert a stat we heard from good friend Evan Silva not too long ago: Julius Peppers is the only player on his current roster who has played a down for another team. Think about that for a second.

"CONGRATS" to Aaron Rodgers for winning his 2nd NFL MVP award and NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT OF THE YEAR and to Ron Wolf for being eleceted into the PRO FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME. The Packers will have 23 men now enshrined!



 Does anybody remember that in recent years, under MM and DC they ALLOWED: Most sacks in history, most runing yards for a QB in history, most running yards againts any defense in history, worst ST and now most incredible comeback in NFC Championship History."NOT THE RECORDS YOU WANT AS A COACH OR A TEAM".

 Someone please tell Clay Matthews to get off his high horse and quit the primadonna bullshit and play all 60 minutes. That's what he gets paid for!


 Aaron Rodgers Story
I live just 30 minutes away from Green Bay, Wisconsin, a.k.a. the Center of the Football Universe. Though I'm not a huge football fan, it's a privilege to be in a region with such a great legacy of excellence. As dramatic as the Packers games can be, some of the most important drama occurs off the field. One touching example was shared by an observant reporter in Milwaukee who attended a charity event that Aaron Rodgers did for the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer). 
"'Save me a spot': A side of Aaron Rodgers you may not know" by Jen Lada of WITI-TV in Milwaukee gives some great insights into Aaron. I was thrilled to see that Aaron's favorite book is the Bible. Wow. I was also thrilled to see that we share the same favorite movie, The Princess Bride. But I was caught by surprise and a bit of emotion with the dedication that he wrote that night on a father's football, something that wasn't done for show but was simply a reflection of the mindset and compassion of this real hero. 
Rodgers' answers and poise on this night were certainly admirable. And I honestly didn't think I could respect Aaron more than I did when we wrapped our hour-long question and answer segment. But I was wrong.
My friend, the father of that young girl who passed, was there that night - enjoying the opportunity to reconnect with many of his MACC Fund family members and revel in the charity's big night. He was one of several attendees brought up on stage where he caught a football thrown by the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. The evening was already a smashing success for him and his grateful family, and then he asked Aaron to sign the football he'd caught. He wondered if he'd make it out to his daughter. It isn't shocking that Rodgers obliged. What caught me off guard was the dedication he made. It wasn't until after Aaron left that I first saw the autograph.. and the simple yet sweet message that brought tears to this father's eyes: "To Cheri the angel. Save me a spot. - Aaron Rodgers

Why does the NFL have the smallest trophy in major sports in the U.S.? The NFL consistently draws 2,3 & 4 times the ratings and money the other sports draw. It clearly is the most popular. The 2014 NFL draft drew 48.5 million viewers. That's right THE DRAFT. More than twice the viewers than the NBA Playoffs.The 2015 Super Bowl drew 114 million viewers! The largest viewing audience in TV history.
 The Borg-Warner Indy 500 Trophy is 5'4" weighs 153lbs and is valued at 3.5 million. The Lombardi Super Bowl Trophy is 22" tall and weighs 7lbs and costs 30 grand. "I'm not sayin I'm just sayin" Make the TROPHY fit the man. Bigger than life. Vince Lombardi.....The Don

All though Tom Petty is my musical hero this is not about the song. When your team is not headed deep into the playoffs and especially not the Super Bowl the waiting for the season to end is brutal. Then it's waiting with anticipation for free agency. Then the frenzy is over and the waiting begins for the draft. Then it's waiting for the years new schedule. Then it's waiting for training camp. Then it's the waiting for pre-season and finally waiting for opening day! Then it's waiting for Thursday night and then waiting for Sunday and then waiting for Monday Night Football. Did I mention waiting for the coals to get ready and the beer to get cold and the brats to get done. Well as I said, the waiting is the hardest part! 
Tom Petty is right.
