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.
Great story from Mike Vandermause about a man who maintains the gravesite of Vince Lombardi simply because of the deep respect he has for the coach.
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.
Another great installment of Vic Ketchman's mailbag.
The best from Wednesday's content around SB Nation after the jump
Brett Favre is gone and Christian Ponder is the future, but there's no way he's starting on opening day this coming season, especially with a shortened (if not non-existent) training camp on the horizon. Daily Norseman looks at a variety of one to two year stopgap starters that they might pursue.
The Phinsider revisits one of their organization's decisions that didn't quite work out as expected.
All I have to say is lol. Trent Dilfer has a ring too, guys.
