Packers playbook ends up all over city street

You don't hear this everyday: a trash truck lost part of it's load and the remnants, strewn across several across several city streets, included part of the Packers' playbooks.

The pages in question were from the preseason game against the Cardinals and involved just special teams. The Packers told WBAY that they weren't concerned about the spill since the pages were recycled instead of shredded, which is what they do with sensitive material.

So why weren't they shredded? Because we're guessing the special teams game plan for the Cardinals went something like this:

Kickoff coverage: Kick ball out of end zone, come to sideline.
Kickoff return: Watch ball sail out of end zone, come to sideline.

At the time of the spill, Deputy Jason Vogel didn't have time to find out the nature of the game plan or its importance. He acted first and asked questions later. "I was just running radar here on (Highway) 57 here -- Riverside Drive -- and noticed a Waste Management truck going southbound and a bunch of papers flying out of the back of his truck," Vogel said Tuesday. "I notified a sergeant and told him what I had and that we might need to notify some people."

WBAY reports that it took crews about an hour to clean up the papers.

If this had happened in Foxboro, Bill Belichick would have issued a lockdown of all civilians within a five-mile radius of the accident, implemented search-and-destroy orders for any suspicious persons subsequently seen in the area, and scorched the region to insure all evidence had been destroyed.

I think that's actually correct but could have been written a little better, i.e.,

"included part, or the Packers' playbooks."

"included part of, or full copies of the Packers' playbooks."

"included parts of, or the Packers' entire playbooks."

This article consists of a bunch of non-news and a blatant grammatical error.

included part or the ' playbooks.

 Have proof readers and editors gone the way of the Dodo?

I think that this would be a great publicity stunt, generate a bunch of bogus play sheets then scatter them throughout the city, let them get in the hands of those who think it will spur a profit by selling them to other teams then watch those coaches scrath thier heads on the sidelines! Ha!

Video provided by Bill Belichick.  Tom Brady, the newest addition to the environmentist movement, was out there picking up trash, funny some paper he was tucking into his pockets.  Al Haynesworth provided security. Tom Brady had to be reminded that Albert Hanynesworth is on his team now and there was little chance of him sacking him.  It did not violate a clause in his contract that defensive players are not allowed to be in the same state as him.  Ocho-Cinco provided commentary.  Robert Kraft paid the bills.
