Well…well…well…Madden has chosen Ha Ha Clinton Dix as its number 8 rookie this year. And Curtis Conway on NFL Network has named him the best player on the Packers team besides Aaron Rodgers…Ed Lacy…get it…Ed Lacy…WOW!!!
It is clear that NO ONE in the national news has any clue what this year’s Packers team is capable of and that is OK by me. With some solid development during training camp and the systemic management that Mike McCarthy has always had with his veteran players (Rodgers, Matthews, and now Peppers) this year’s Packers team has the potential to be legendary.
But it all starts this Saturday and a lot depends on whether this team can stay healthy. But if they can…this team of Packers is like the United States black ops…nobody knows anything about them but in the end…they get the job DONE!
What the national news doesn’t know is that Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is not even a shoe-in for a starting role. Micah Hyde has done an admirable job, knows the playbook, and will give Clinton-Dix a run for his money. Whoever gets the starting role (I do think Clinton-Dix has a good chance), the Packers hope to return to their ball-hawking ways…like they did during the Super Bowl run in 2010.
Well if Clinton-Dix is Madden’s number eight rookie without even playing a snap, then I guess the Packers are in good standing for this coming season. We have added Julius Peppers to complement Clay Matthews, drafted Ha Ha and a bevy of other young players. We have managed our workouts as well as any team in the league, and we have taken care of business in the NFC North for as long as people can remember. But for Packernation…that is just not…quite…good…enough…
The promise of this year starts with the fact that we have so many good players coming back healthy but it ONLY ends in another Super Bowl win for the Pack…
Well…we are Packernation and only the best is good enough.
