    Thanks for the pressure.

    Let's see. Let's see. How should I handle Chibiabos douchey little outburst there. Hmmm. I could go into a freedom of speech rant like the old guys in the atrium do. Hmmmmm. I haven't sliced and diced anyone with an expletive-laced tirade in a while. I could do that.

    But the truth is I don't even know who chibiabos is, so I really don't care.

    Sorry for the let down.

    Hey Hey I got into the OTA! They had a door open near the sidewalk and about 30 or so fans cautiously wandered in and were allowed to stay for about an hour. Really cool! Rodgers looked great. ( I am no judge of an NFL quarterback) Great velocity. The highlight was a deep ball, perfect spiral, perfect rainbow hit Francies? in stride. Big round of applause from the crowd. I got a ton of pictures and will try and post them. This is new to me so it might take some time. Cool tidbits: Driver walked past our position about 10 feet away and a fan asked if he could get a picture of him with his kid and Driver stopped looked back at the team and looked back at the fan and you could tell he was bummed that he was going to have to say no. He broke into that smile and said "Sorry, gotta go to work!" Not long after Bodiford? ran over and gave his skull cap thing to the kid. Packer People!

    Great pics Django, you must've had a heck of a time.

    In the picture "green bay co nyc 413.jpg" is it just me or does anyone else think that Rouse's legs look like those of a woman?

    Harrell held back

    It was learned that defensive tackle and former first round draft pick Justin Harrell had offseason surgery on his back, which is the reason he's not participating in the Green Bay Packers' Organized Team Activities (OTAs).

    Harrell reportedly injured himself while weightlifting this offseason and had minor surgery about a month or so ago to repair it. The Packers never reported the injury until now, and it became known that the injury was to a disc in Harrell's back, a potentially serious issue.

    That's why Harrell won't be participating in either the OTAs or mandatory minicamp in mid-June either.

    "I'll be ready training camp," Harrell is quoted as saying in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "This is the most important time, right here, to get yourself better, get more accustomed to the system. But I just have to do what I can, and what they let me do. Being frustrated is not going to change the situation."

    Harrell's injury has left the Packers a little thin along the defensive line and especially at the defensive tackle position. Fellow defensive tackle Johnny Jolly will also be sitting out all of the OTAs as he recovers from his 2007 season-ending injury. In addition, both Colin Cole and Daniel Muir will be sitting out at least the beginning of the OTAs, but could re-join the action before they're over.

    Among the only true defensive tackles are starter Ryan Pickett and a pair of untested players in Conrad Bolston and Alfred Malone. Due to the shortage, starting defensive end Cullen Jenkins has moved inside to tackle next to Pickett for the OTA sessions.

    Jenkins is used to the position, though. He was a full-time defensive tackle at one point in his career and still moves inside on some passing downs.

    Dude, don't buy into that crap. He was exercising the next day. It was an outpatient procedure and these NFL teams have the best doctors and trainers available. They'll be keeping an eye on him.

    Potentially serious? It's either serious or it's not. Anything can be potentially serious.

    When he starts missing training camp practices and preseason games, call me.

    i dont know how good it is to know that breno giacommini is tossing jeremy thompson around.


    that could simply mean that jeremy thompson isnt as good as we hoped.

    but if the glass is half full.... Breno is a man child.
