Thursday Morning Green Bay Packers, Other NFL Links: Awesome Dude Maintains Lombardi's Grave, Eli Manning Gets Dissed

New, comments

Hey there boys and girls. Unlike me, Brandon has a family and a job that does not involve writing about and/or watching sports all day, so I'm gladly taking over some of the daily work here at Acme Packing Company, at least until the European soccer season starts up again and the "day job" becomes more time consuming. Every morning, I'll be dropping some Packers links on you, as well as links to the best stuff of the day from SB Nation's other football blogs.

I Like Alex Green Already | Cheeshead TV

Rookie running back Alex Green isn't getting paychecks from the Packers, but he did get paid for an endorsement recently. So what's he doing with the money? Banking it, like any normal 22-year-old would do. Editor's note: I'm 22, I would buy so much expensive booze with that money.

The Phinsider revisits one of their organization's decisions that didn't quite work out as expected.
