Since you all got bombarded with lockout and CBA talk yesterday, I decided to keep this morning's news and links post mostly about football and/or human interest stories that have absolutely nothing to do with either the NFL lockout or the new proposed CBA. Without any further ado, here are your Wednesday morning Green Bay Packers and NFL news and links.
Jason Wilde with a good article on some Packers that will soon depart. It's a bit CBAish, but it's mostly about the players themselves.
As Lynn Dickey signed autographs Sunday at Stone Harbor Resort & Conference Center in Sturgeon Bay, the former Green Bay Packers quarterback admitted he's been thinking about adding a little something to his signature.
This is mildly ridiculous.
Randall Cobb, who has been working out at the IMG Madden Football Academy in Florida, took a few minutes to talk to Dan Tierney about his past and present football career.
Cool post about what happens with both Finley and Jennings on the field.
What's going on around SB Nation after the jump
Sidney Rice might not be as hot a ticket in free agency as initially thought.
OH S--T! DARREN SHARPER! ONE A DA HARDEST HITTIN SAFETIES IN DA LEAGUE. But yo, I put the team on my back.
The Cowboys were recently proclaimed to be the best passing attack in the NFC East. We use this to take a look at the common misconception that Tony Romo is breaking records in a watered down league.
The linebacking corps is one that has been very strong historically for the Seahawks, or at least in the last 5-10 years anyway, and barring any injuries in 2011, should remain relatively strong. That said, the depth there is tenuous at best and will need to be addressed through free agency or trades.
Stevie Johnson was the talk of the football world after his dropped touchdown pass in overtime against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
These were the ABC's of the Kansas City Chiefs in recent memory. These are the kinds of words that were used to describe my favorite NFL team's play and it's players over the last several seasons. (OK, maybe I'm stretching it with the African clawed frog; but I really needed an "X").
The SB Nation blogs were fire yesterday. Enjoy your Wednesday.
