Hey Ted – Gimme a Call

Just letting everyone on the Packers know, I’m available. I’m 6′2″ 200lbs, run the 40 in about 40, don’t go over the middle but run crisp routes, have good hands and never had a DUI. I’ll work hard and take the minimum for a white receiver (which I think is about $6.50/hour).

Seriously though, now that Koren Robinson is going to spend the next year in court, jail or the bar… who does Favre throw to? Ferguson might not play again this year. That leaves us with 3 receivers! Not only that, but Driver is banged up (rib injuries don’t tend to heal quick when you’re always getting popped by linebackers and safeties on slant routes, either) and Ruvell Martin is not a really attractive #3 option.

So with that, the trading deadline passed without going after any receivers. I can certainly understand and applaud no mention of Randy Moss by the team or the media… but no receivers period? Why not unload some of that depth at defensive tackle to go after a young guy with some potential? Instead, they’ll probably call up someone like Calvin Russell from the practice squad. Doing that would be as close as you could come to saying “fuck it” to the entire season. I suppose we’ll see a lot more two tight end sets and a lot of praying that no more receivers get hurt. Maybe we can have Woodson line up in the slot and finally have a defensive back who holds onto a ball.
