    PACKMEN WANT PACMAN?
    Posted by Mike Florio on April 1, 2008, 7:11 a.m.
    We need to preface this one by pointing out that it isn’t an April Fool’s gag. (We’re out of the April Fool’s Day business for the first time in our six-plus-year history because each year more and more people believe the intentionally phony stories, which undermines our unintentionally phony stories.)

    The Green Bay Packers are interested in Pacman Jones. Our good friends at Sporting News mentioned the possibility in last week’s magazine, with the image of a dejected Reggie Wayne on the cover (or, alternatively, he’d just been kicked in the nuts).

    On the surface, the Packers don’t need Pacman because they have Al Harris and Charles Woodson. But Harris will turn 34 in December and Woodson will be 32 in October, so at some point the Packers have to think about going younger.

    Whether the guy who makes it rain will be accepted by the folks who make it cheese remains to be seen. Many of the Green Bay fans didn’t want Randy Moss last year, even though his presence arguably would have been the difference between an NFC title game loss and a Super Bowl triumph.

    And Pacman is an even higher level of turd, so we can’t imagine the folks in Green Bay reacting well to Brett Favre’s legend being followed by Adam Jones.

    On Monday, it was reported that teams other than the Cowboys are interested in Jones. Those teams have not yet been identified.

    From Profootballtalk.com.
    They said it's NOT an April fools Day thing, but I'm hoping it IS!
    We don't need this POS!
    What do ya all think?
    GO PACKERS!!!!

    he has been a thorn in the side of the NFL. but, so had koren robinson. Ted brought him in, and he's been a saint. If Ted decides to bring in Pacman (which i don't think will happen), I think TT has fully earned the benefit of the doubt, and i trust his personnel decisions

    I don't think this guy has really learned his lesson. He appears to not really care at all. With the emphasis that TT and MM put on players being "Packer People", I don't see how they could even forsee this guy fitting in. Unique talent, sure, but he's a complete knucklehead.

    all i can say is dont worry.

    If TT brings him in... you gotta believe that he has addressed the problems and is 99% sure of it never happening again.


    and to be honest... if you can get a highly rated CB for as little as this may take... you do it regardless.

    besides theres no strip clubs to shoot up in GB. i dont like the guy one bit... but he is a good cornerback and we could use all the help you can get.

    adding chillar and Pacman would instantly make us the best defense in the entire league.

    no doubt he is a very good player in football and other things but he spends more time off the field then on it which gives him more time for other things. i just dont think it would be worth all the baggage that come with him. i say lets just build via the draft its been pretty good so far and this year the d.b.s in the draft look pretty good so we should be able to get at least one good one and who better to learn from then harris & woodson.so i say we leave him alone we dont need the headache

    He would improve our team.

    I don't think he has learned his lesson, but on the other hand, he won't have that many temptations or opportunities to get in trouble in Green Bay.

    I'm not sure how I feel about this.

    However, I don't believe it. I think it is BS.

    I don't get PFT mentioning this...

    Usually they have more info, this time it's only "(tidbit) mentioned in Sporting News"...

    You'd at least expect PFT to have info on what draft pick the Packers might be willing to offer or how many discussions have gone on between the Pack and Titans.

    For now, TAKE THIS RUMOR WITH A GRAIN OF SALT. It seems for the moment that PFT/Sporting News are making the connection between Packers and Pacman simply because Packers have a need that Pacman fills.

    Also, you have to take into account that Pacman would be exposed to Al Harris and C-Wood, two guys thatt are vets who might have a positive influence on Pacman...

    i agree with the dissent... the guy is kind of a turd. i will not be hurt at all if he isnt signed with us


    im just saying that if Management does bring him in, then we should give him the benefit of the doubt, as crazy as that sounds.

    I just think with the personnel decisions thus far, and the character building they have done. i think they have earned our trust, or at least should have.

    so when the guy has talent like this and our current management believes he wont be a problem and will dedicate himself to football... then by all means we should accept him.

    forget about pacmans past and problems... trust the guys who havent done anything to make you doubt there character judgement. and thats our front office

    Pacman

    Hm, I just read the "this isn't an April Fool's joke"...

    I'm not sure whether that makes it more likely to be one, or not be one at all... :-?

    Re: Crapman Jones????

    I completely agree.

    The Packers have moved away from the "Packer people" idea, so it isn't like they'd be contradicting themselves by going after Pacman.

    Pacman has talent, and you have to believe getting him instantly makes the Packers a heck of a team.

    The only thing is why did PFT wait until today to post this... if it supposedly appeared on Sporting News a week ago, you'd think with Florio's connections to SN he'd have posted it sooner.

    Check out PFT, they just posted that Taylor retiring story was an April Fool's joke, and the "we aren't doing April fools joke" was a set-up...

    I'm even more confused now about whether this is a real rumor or made-up for April Fools

    What a shocker. Florio spreading negative rumors about the Packers, that end up not being true.

    Sometimes he has inside info, but my god, his Packers rumors that he decides to post are just awful.

    Re: Crapman Jones????

    2 big differences in a K-Rob vs Jones comparison:
    1) TT knew Koren personally,
    2) We had Brett Favre who was a HUGE support network for Koren

    I don't know enough about Jones to say yeah or nay, but I'll trust whatever decision our Packer staff makes. It was obviously the right one with Koren.

    Sorry. I hope it's not accurate because I would seriously lose respect for the Packers organization.

    The Koren comparison really doesn't do it for me either. Koren was a guy with a substance abuse problem. Pacman is an outright thug who deserves to be making license tags, not a multi-million dollar salary. Big difference in the character of those two, IMO.

    Pacman doesn't want to play in Wisconsin.

    He only wants a star on his helmet, not a "G". Regardless of factors in a trade, I just don't think he'd play here.

    He's a great athlete, but again, he won't say yes to a new contract with us, so don't look forward to it.

    He will fit in perfectly in Dallas. Thugs and arrogant jackasses have always done well there.

    i dont see any difference in character between the two.

    Just because Koren is now a Packer doesnt mean what he did wasnt illegal.


    if your saying theres a difference in Koren's attitude about what he did and his willingness to fix what he did... then we can agree.

    but both guys did something illegal, stupid and thugish. Both guys paid for it. Just cause he plays for the Packers now, doesnt mean he didnt break the law.
