Backups? What Backups?

So today I'm going to complain about the Packers. Yeah. So if you don't wanna hear it, go somplace else. Now.

Apparently the Green Bay Packers seem to think that having a solid set of second stringers is a bad thing. I watched a little bit of the game last night and got pretty disgusted with what I saw. Our defence looked like something out of last season's playbook. No pressure on Vince Young and collapsing the offensive line in all the wrong ways to stop Young from running literally straight into the endzone. That was pathetic.

Barnett, and Smith were the only real veterans on the field and Raji was the only one trying to play really well. Smith and Raji both got injured, so now where does that put us? Smith was our only bit of depth in the safety department and Raji was our top defensive prospect. Bishop played pretty well, but he didn't have the help that he's usually had with the veteran starters in there.

Now onto our offense. Brohm looked once again like he shouldn't be allowed to quarterback the local pewee football league. He did put together a few OK drives, but it wasn't anything that a Rex Grossman or a Kyle Orton couldn't do. If Matt Flynn was not injured, I would almost want to cut Brohm just because he's such a bust.

Our running game wasn't great either...it'll be a difficult decision for McCarthy when he makes his roster, choosing one which didn't suck worse: Lumpkin or Wynn. Grant, Sutton, and Jackson will probably make it for sure, but Wynn and Lumpkin have their work cut out for them.

Let's just hope that we don't get too banged up this year because I don't wanna look at who's supposed to be backing up the original player.

First Blog!

So this is my first blog on Music Melk's Crazy Corner, and I'll pretty much just start off by saying hi and letting you know that this will be more of a weekly blog than anything else. I will post on Friday afternoons and usually include my predictions for the upcoming week in football for professional football only. Now a little about myself, I am a sophomore at the UW (Wisconsin) majoring in Music Performance. I am an avid Packer and Brewers fan, but also enjoy watching the Steelers play. I gotta love the alma mater, so of course there will be badger postings as well. I am an avid golfer, so I shall be discussing golf pretty regularly too. I don't know how much time I'll have to maintain this blog, but I'll do my best. Well, that's all I've got for now, see you in a week!
