BLOGGING IQ'S

What a strange culture this society has evolved into. Suddenly through the miracle of blogs the making of genius takes place. Just read the dumb responses to one person's opinion. The purpose of a blog is to state an opinion. These bozos take it seriously and feel the need to response in defense as though it really matters. If you express an opinion contrary to these intellectual icons the war is on. It is really reminding me of the futility in Washington where an opinion is taken as a challenge. With all the issues in this country the people least likely to contribute to their solutions have all the answers. Most of the respondents cannot even spell and their writings are similar to what you would expect from 6 year olds. This country was founded on men exchanging ideas with reasonable discourse and the eventual choosing of the best ideas or thoughts. Somewhere along the way we have lost our way. Intellectual pigmies have found a conduit for inane and thoughtless dialogue that clearly reflects the evolutionary state we are in. If you want to see evidence of our species hurdling toward extinction visit the blogs and see what I mean. Its probably for the best anyhow.

MINUS 85

It amazes me that NFL football teams-especially the Bengals-stand on the shaking steps of principle and de-activate 85 because he fell asleep after being late for a team meeting. That is kind of like the captain of the Titanic saying the music is too loud in the last floating minutes. The organization could have avoided all this by simply trading minus 85. NFL teams are a joke in terms of controlling employees and personnel. Jones is back again. Guys get shot regularly. The employers look the other way. The drug testing is hightly questionalble. Try to get a job as a bus driver and see how many hoops you have to jump through. Compare that to the NFL with its open door policy for anyone and anything that wears a jock. Kind of look around and see where we are. It does not look good. Will we continue to watch-absolutely because its fascinating to see how the teams continue to reflect all that is wrong with society and make so much money. Kind of like watching MMA and thinking-man is that brutal and should'nt that be outlawed-but we keep on watching.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF ME NOW?

Just a little follow up on the Bret Favre saga. All those experts who trashed Favre at the beginning of the season are not really saying anything now. The small minded negative guys who said he was washed up and threw too many picks. Well take another look. Favre is a winner. Look how the Jets play with him at QB. Everyone plays better. Beating the Pats on the road. Those negative guys can just shut up. Enjoy the final year or so of one of the greats and stop the negative crap. Think about yourself playing NFL QB at 39 years of age. Yea right.

3 STOOGES REMAKE

Just listened to the Packer management team fumble their way through a news conference on Favre. Wow. That is some group. It is amazing how they have gotten this far in life. All they wanted to hear from Bret was that he wanted to play for the Packers. He is in Green Bay sitting in front of you. Ask him. That was the worst political speak I have heard this week and we have plenty of that going around. Rodgers must be thanking Thompson right now for the impossible pressure to succeed that he now faces. It is one thing to replace a retired Favre and quite another to replace a displaced Favre. Good luck with that. I expect the boo birds to fill the stadium and be heard at the first failure of Rodgers. Thanks Ted. Favre will fit with the Jets in short order and make them a playoff team.

IMAGINE EGOS GETTING IN THE WAY

Favre is now gone from Packer land. It seems impossible that adult males cannot talk out issues without their egos getting in the way. Especially multi  million dollar issues such as the Packer-Favre issue. When you hire management people to run the franchise a critical factor is to use people with objectivity and flexibility when it comes to inter personal dynamics. Sure Favre pushed the envelope-but the CEO and GM for the Pack just let the hormones dictate common sense. It is incomprehensible that they would offer a player 25 million to sit out . Get real. If that is not face saving egotism I don't have a clue. I am not a Favre fan nor a Packer fan-just a football fan. For the sake of football and the Packer fans this issue needed to be resolved. It is hard to believe any Packer management remains in place. McCarthey said he did not hear the answers he was looking for. It is not about him. It is about what is best for the team here and now. There are no guarantees but you would sure want #4 taking snaps. Crazy. Life truly is stranger than fiction.

GET THE FAVRE OUT OF THE WAY

The Green Bay Packers management is absolutely ridiculous. Do you mean to tell me that they really think a Hall of Fame QB like Favre will take a bribe to stay out of the game and become a pencil pushing sales person. Ridiculous. These guys have got to go. If I were Favre I would have kicked them out of the house with my foot you know where. The Packers need to reach down and see if they have any balls and let the man go. Favre should be released out right. If he signs with the Vikings kick his ass when he comes back to play. 25 million to not play is a joke and minimizes the game and should insult Favre. If the Packers don't have the balls to let him come back then give the man a release. The commissioner should step in on this fiasco and make sure GB does the right thing. The complete managment team of the Packers should be removed and competent people put into place. To destroy the reputation of a great franchise such as the Packers is unbelievable. Get the hell over it and move on. The whole pre-season will be dominated by this nonsense and it does not serve the game well. This is why college football is better.
