    Not sure how to feel on this one. Are the packers trying to save money or are they concerned that the extra players may be a distraction?

    There are certain guys on IR I feel sorry for, others I don't. If they had conditioned themselves like they should have then perhaps they'd be playing in the Superbowl instead of tweeting how many times they've gone to IHOP in the past month.

    IMO, give them the motivation to come back stronger, better conditioned, and more focused next year so they can get back to the Superbowl and be in the picture.

    OK. I might take a lot of flack for this but.... Finley is dissappointing me a LOT! The guy is athletic. The guy is good. But he's being a diva, and this team has been diva free since... #4. I feel bad for Barnet, and yeah, I'd want them to be in the pic also... but come on...

    Drop your balls, grow up, and be a professional. Stop crying on twitter how the world sucks when your making 3 million dollars to catch a ball.

    I do not know, but I am getting fed up with people just posting things w/o dbl checking

    There was one thread today with the same exact title of one that was posted hours earlier, and they still didnt care

    We even have a modification in place to alert people when there is a similar title already posted

    going to start banning people lol

    There has been A LOT of that lately. Maybe because of the influx of new people?

    I see regulars starting these threads though.

    If that was the teams decision that is pretty shady but i would think it has to do with NFL rules.

    And those 14 people on IR better be the best damn motivators for the Packers now. Don't be a Cutler, support your team.

    If this happened to some Steelers that were on IR, I would be furious with the front office. This is a slap in the face of the hard work those guys put in before getting hurt. I mean, its not like they intentionally get hurt. The Packers screwed this up big time imo. The last thing you guys need is players pissed off at the FO and distracted from what they are supposed to be doing. My .02 cents

    My bad, I should have read this thread before commenting. I'm glad however that those guys get to have their pic taken with the team.

    At my brothers wedding the photographer did a few shots of just him and his new bride standing there posing.
    Even though I was the best man, I wasn’t in those photos.
    Goddamn, I feel left out.

    I couldn't give less of a damn about the actual picture and who's in it, this is a GREAT move by the Packers because it stomps dead a potential distraction very early in the runup to the game.
