Friday Morning Green Bay Packers, NFL News And Links: Vince Lombardi's Grave, Pete Prisco Being Dumb

New, comments

The reading just gets more and more interesting with every day the lockout goes by. I would really, really like it if I could write about reports of the progression or stagnation of young players participating in minicamps, but instead we have stupid crap like overrated-underrated lists and more lockout speculation from people that have no idea what they're talking about. This weekend, I'm going to order the UFC card and pretend it's football. Here are your Friday morning Green Bay Packers and NFL news and links.

Pete Prisco's overrated-underrated list - Calling Asante Samuel overrated is beyond stupid - Bleeding Green Nation

I think the worst thing about discovering that I could read about football on the internet was the discovery of Pete Prisco. And before you say 'Mike Florio,' Pro Football Talk didn't exist (or at least had less than 1,000 page views a month) when I discovered Prisco. This is not a personal attack, I just happen to think he's very bad at his job.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone.
