What do you Think?

Cornerback Al Harris seems to be in a bit of trouble these days. Apparently he has been accused of ‘forcing himself on a striper’ at the Cheetah Strip Club. No charges have been pressed yet since the police are still investigating if he really did it or if the stripper just wants money… you can’t trust anyone now and days.

Same Mistake

This is so funny. Apparently Packers running back Najeh Davenport has hired on Drew Rosenhaus as his agent. Do you all know who Rosenhaus is? Well he happens to be Javon Walker’s agent as well. The agent has it out bad for the Packers it seems.

For those of you cheese heads who should know and don’t know, Javon walker is holding out from camp demanding more money. At this rate don’t expect to see him in a Packers uniform next year.

Mini-Camp Battles

In the sixth round of the 2005 draft the Packers choose rookie Mike Montgomery, a defensive linemen, who stands at 6-5 and weighs 273 pounds. Montgomery has a very good motor and would quite possibly be the starter at left end when the season begins.

Montgomery has a good amount of potential to become a great outside pass rusher since he is not too consistent at getting low when he plays inside the line. The job at LE is not wide open for the taking. Aaron Kampman is penciled as the starter for now. Even if Montgomery does not earn a starting role, expect there to be a good mix of both Kampman and Montgomery by mid-season.

Question...

I was jumping around message boards, and I have noticed the increasing number of Packer fans. With all the new these new fans coming out of the wood work, I'm curious to hear anyone's story as to why they are Packer fans and when they decided to become a cheesehead:)

Sherman's Last Stand

Brian DeLucia, OURLADS.com / Special to FOXSports.com
Packers coach Mike Sherman can't be feeling too good about his future in Green Bay these days.

New Packers personnel boss Ted Thompson returned to Green Bay this off-season from Seattle at a difficult time. The future is uncertain as future Hall of Famer Brett Favre is winding down his career, but the Pack must remain competitive while he's still playing quarterback. At the same time, the man who lost his title to Thompson, Mike Sherman, is still on the sidelines.

Thompson does have more security at quarterback for the long-term with first-round rookie Aaron Rodgers coming aboard, but he is faced with some extremely difficult
decisions for this season due to salary issues.

Sherman lost three cornerstones of his playoff teams — starting guards Mike Wahle and Marco Rivera, plus safety and defensive leader Darren Sharper. The only saving grace is that they didn't play left tackle, quarterback and cornerback.

The defense has been an Achilles' heel for Sherman the past few seasons. He's hired a new defensive coordinator in Jim Bates, but the personnel situation is no better than last season. The closest thing to immediate help through the draft could be fourth-round safety Marviel Underwood.

There is absolutely no pass rush outside of Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila. They lack playmakers throughout this defense.

Thompson is doing the right thing by trying to clean up the Packers' salary structure. The Pack weren't moving forward under Sherman's personnel decisions.

As for Sherman the coach, the future doesn't feel too comfortable as Thompson likely prefers to have his own man patrolling the sidelines, especially following an uncomfortable changing of the guard atop the Green Bay hierarchy.

The NFC North will be a lot tougher this season with Chicago and Detroit expecting to be more competitive, while Minnesota has significantly upgraded its defense. So much for off-season optimism.
