    Anyone read this article yet? I'm curious if Havel blasted Mike for leaving or if he agreed with him leaving lol

    It mostly rehashed a lot of old news. Two of Chris' opinions on it were when he stated:

    "But parting ways with McKenzie — no matter how grave the consequences at cornerback — was one of Sherman’s best moves in a forgettable tenure as GM. It rid the Packers of a disenfranchised player, and it afforded Ted Thompson, the new GM, the second-round pick to acquire promising rookie safety Nick Collins."

    and at the end Havel states:

    "It was about money.

    If the Packers had sweetened McKenzie’s contract, I suspect he would have stayed put. When they didn’t, he forced a trade by being an insufferable pain in the butt. He walked out on his team at the first sign of trouble. That doesn’t make McKenzie clever. It makes him a quitter. Come Sunday he’ll be a loser."

    Thank you for the response. I guess that is pretty much what I was expecting :)

    Well, Havel was right that on Sunday McKenzie would be a loser.

    “He was impressive,’’ said Saints cornerback Mike McKenzie, who played five seasons with Favre in Green Bay.

    “We took a step back today, we got our --- kicked,â€
