Packer Notes: Nick Barnett on LA Ink, Francois Is Back, and Stop Laughing!

 - Watch LB Nick Barnett on LA Ink. Here's the link to You Tube. I never watch LA Ink, but that segment was great and very personal.

 - Did you say excruciating minutiae? That's my favorite! With LBs Brady Poppinga and Brad Jones hurting, the Packers announced they've re-signed LB Robert Francois to the practice squad and released OT Chris Campbell. Francois played well, not great, during the preseason, while Campbell was the worst player I saw. Somehow he managed to hang onto the practice squad. They've kept three offensive lineman inactive the last two weeks, and still have OT Breno Giacomini on the practice squad, so Campbell didn't provide valuable depth either. It's interesting how the Packers have this bonus reserve of players who they release, but then re-sign later for depth. First this season it was DE Jarius Wynn, and now Francois.

 - Stop laughing at the Bills! According to, S Donte Whitner is sick of watching teams like the Packers laugh at the Bills on the sidelines. I often see players joking around and laughing on the sidelines during a blow-out, but are they laughing at you or just laughing? Did anyone else see the Packers laughing at the Bills?
