What The Scouts Are Saying About The Packers
With Ahmad Green gone to Houston, this is Morency's time to continue the running back tradition at Lambeau. He should really flourish under this system with his work ethic and indoor bowel control...Most people don't talk about Al Harris as a shutdown corner, but he's there. Not only that, he's got a dick like a 1-liter bottle of Pepsi...
Favre isn't the gunslinger he once was. McCarthy has managed to rein him in somewhat; he's not throwing any INTs in practice anymore. Those skeleton 7-on-4 drills have really helped...P Jon Ryan may have his work cut out for him this year, but he did buy a $2 million helicopter in Patriot Games. That movie was sweet...I wish I could tell you more about Nick Collins, but I flew in from Foxboro last night, I'm driving home from the airport and there's my wife throwing my shit all over the lawn. The goddamn neighborhood kids were going through it. So yeah, I didn't really get a chance to study up...What's up with the cheeseheads? Dude, I have no fucking clue.
UPDATE: I just got an email from flub. "Not for nothing, but it's 'Vernand' Morency, not Vernon and he's never played for Pittsburgh. You may be thinking of Verron Haynes. I'm not sure if Haynes is in the league any more." I'm not sure what he's talking about. I just re-read my post and the whole thing looks fine...
