Mark Chmura of the Green Bay PackersOn July 17, 2010, Mark Chmura will officially come home.

Upon his induction into the Packer Hall of Fame (along with Greg Koch and Marv Flemming) he will take his place among the all time Packer greats. He was instrumental during the Super Bowl runs in the mid 90s, and was always a favorite.

But was he a hall of famer?

What Makes a Hall of Famer?

This topic was approached on Cheesehead Radio this past week, and the discussion was about whether this production on the field warranted his induction into the Hall of Fame. This writer was in full support of his induction, stating that he was an integral part of the success of the 90’s, and the three time Pro Bowler deserved to become a Hall of Famer. My argument was simple: if Don Majkowski, who I loved as a quarterback could get inducted based on one good year in the NFL, then Chmura deserved to be elected based on his career production.

Again, one good year for Majkowski, 8 productive years for Chmura.

First of all, let me get this off my chest…

You are a moron.

Now, allow me to elaborate.

Today, July 16, 2010 you were suspended indefinitely by the NFL for violation of the league’s substance abuse policy. This suspension, coupled with the fact that it is a minimum one year suspension, means that you had to have tested positive multiple times for violation of the substance policy. 

Typically, a minimum of three violations would have led to this level of suspension. This means that you could have tested positive last year, this offseason, last offseason, and appealed all of the above. It was this final one that pushed the league to act the way it did.

Now this should have come as no surprise I guess, as you were arrested two years ago for possession of codeine. A felony charge which was dropped, then refiled, as you are currently awaiting trial due to begin in two weeks.  I guess I knew something was going to happen. I guess your employers, the Green Bay Packers, did as well.

For the past two years, the team has been adding depth along the defensive line. B.J. Raji, C.J. Wilson, Jarius Wynn, Mike Neal were all drafted to “shore up” depth in the same positional breakdown that you play.

Or played, that is.

Green Bay Packer offensive lineman Josh SittonI caught up with Josh Sitton recently and he was kind enough to give us some insight into his personal goals, the state of the offensive line, and his thoughts on the coaching staff. I'd like to offer a big thanks to Josh for taking time out of his busy day to share some thoughts with us.

With that, I give you my Q & A with Josh Sitton.

1. How have you prepared on your own this offseason? Is it different this offseason, now that you're the hands-down starter?

The biggest thing I have done this offseason is get my weight and body fat down and lean muscle up. I have been eating right and working out hard. It has helped my speed tremendously.

I guess you can call them highlights. Sure give us a taste of the coming season.

I think, in addition to playing very vanilla on defense in order to not tip his hand, Capers was also trying to ensure that his players won't get hurt.
