Your team isn't going to the Super Bowl, so why have any optimism? The Hater Nation brings you back to reality with the Super Bowl Buzz Kill. Why your team won't win the Super Bowl:
The Green Bay Packers
The Packers are going to be interesting this season, but of course, all of the early season hype will surround Brett Favre and his quest to break one of the all-time records in sports as he becomes the NFL’s interception king. And that march towards the record could be a little distracting. Especially if some of the rumors are true that Favre has been, well, maybe using some performance enhancers to extend his career and make a push for the record.
Because as anybody knows, if Jake Plummer ever comes out of retirement, he is definitely going to break Favre’s all-time interception record.
Still, you hope that Favre has been doing it naturally, much the same way that George Blanda did. The former Bears, Raiders, Oilers, etc. quarterback did it on hot dogs and beer. But how did Favre do it?
THN dug up a college photo from Southern Miss to take a look at how the elder statesmen’s body has changed through the years. Because if we have learned anything from the Barry Bonds chase, it’s this—if your body does not look the same as it did when you where in college, you are on the juice. Hell, if your body doesn’t look the same from when you were in your mid 20s, you are certainly one the juice.
And sadly, but looking at the picture, we can see that Favre has gained a little weight from his college days. His arms practically doubled in size. Shame on you, Brett.
This could derail a rather promising season for Green Bay. Honestly, the Packers are on to something here. The young defense, led by A.J. Hawk and veterans such as Charles Woodson has a chance to be really good. Rookie receiver James Jones is going to be the starter by the fourth week, if not sooner because of injuries. Then you have a miserable division with the Vikings and Lions, plus the Bears will come back to Earth as most Super Bowl runners up do, there could be a chance for the Packers to win the division. The only concern is Brandon Jackson and Vernand Morency at running back. They aren’t good. Green Bay has enough to make it to the playoffs, but beyond that? Probably not. Especially as those whispers get louder.
