    Not the comparison I was making.

    Rison was a mid season pickup as well. I was trying to think of the only "diva" receiver the Packers had in the Favre era. Javon Walker was a draft pick so that really doesn't fit. Sharpe was a draft pick as well.

    The only "diva receiver" who we went out and signed was Andre Rison and we decided to keep an injured Robert Brooks rather than pay Rison a big contract after the Super Bowl as well. Rison left for big money in Kansas City. The rest of our receivers were relatively quiet guys who were not high draft picks. Freeman, Brooks, and Driver.

    Same with TE's. 66 continues to say Ron Wolf went out and made a lot of moves. Jermey Shockey is a TE with a lot of baggage. He goes out and parties a lot. He loves the spotlight. He is not what I would call a good "character guy"

    Keith Jackson was signed for the 96 season. Just the opposite. A veteran looking for a ring and a stand up guy.

    You look at all of Ron Wolf's pickups. They all had little to no baggage. Reggie White was a class act. Sean Jones was as classy as they get. Santana Dotson.

    The guys people keep mentioning for the Packers are guys with a lot of baggage. Randy Moss and Jeremy Shockey to be specific. Last year Terrell Owens.

    I agree we need the talent at those respective positions but maybe not those players.

    Pushing the subject more towards Brett here...

    Lynn Swann, a hall of fame receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1974-'82, said from Miami, site of Super Bowl XLI, "Either you're ready to leave or you think you can still do it and you don't feel your time is done. Someone once told me it's better to play one more year past than it is one year less. You never get it back."

    Poor Aaron, how will he ever survive. Maybe we can start an Aaron Rodgers Relief Fund.

    I got 5 on it

    Don't knock Andre Rison. Without Rison the Packers don't win a Super Bowl.

    That was a joke right???

    Without Reggie White the Packers don't win a Super Bowl

    Without Favre the Packers don't win a Super Bowl


    Without Holmgren the Packers don't win a Super Bowl

    Without Rison the Packers would find another veteran receiver to catch a couple of balls per game. And still win a superbowl.

    I think Shockey's problem is that he needs to get out of NY. He wouldn't be too bad of a pick up. But you're right, there are better guys out there. Sorry, I know this is a Favre thread.

    Shockey's a partyer. He loves the NY night life. I don't think he'd want to come to Green Bay.

    flapackfan, we're not cutting Bubba. I'd put money on it.

    Get over yourself. Saying Moss is a better talent isn't saying Rison was garbage.

    I will boycott if he is our starting tight end again next year. I will write a letter and email it and mail it to everybody involved in this organization. he is so bad. I'd rather bring back Jackie Harris than see him play another down.

    I just got home, folks. This is wonderful news indeed. Now, let's get a Safety and a TE and we'll be in business! :packbeer:

    Oh, let's sign Cullen Jenkins too while we're at it. Let's not forget that. 2007 is going to be good. :thumbsup:
