Green Bay should be able to address this in the draft. They've been a very good evaluator of talent over the years.

I don't think you really want to draft a return man specifically. If you find the WR/RB/DB you want and he also has experience returning kicks, then go for it, but it's pretty hard to spot the next Desean Jackson or Devin Hester.

Coaching and getting good blockers on the kick teams probably matter more if Ellis Hobbs and Julian Edelman can score on returns.

On the highway from my hometown to Appleton (which is just south of Green Bay), there's a barn known for the Packer-related signs along it, in big white, block letters.

Now it says something to the effect of:

#12 is 3x #4

The funny thing is that for quite some time, even after Favre grew more and more hated in Wisconsin, it said something like #4 Always In Our Hearts.

Guess he finally changed his mind.

LOL. I said that because Hawk's deal needs restructuring - the Packer's aren't going to pay him $10 million this year. Either his deal gets reworked, or he's gone.

There was a story about that on the news yesterday

Yeah, ESPN did a little piece on that a few days ago.

Wish I could remember which station . . .

I'll be meeting John Kuhn tonight. My goal is to convince him to sign a photo of me in a gorilla suit and cheesehead sitting at Soldier Field.

New England makes Logan Mankins the first franchise player of this offseason.

I'm sure that'll go over well with him

I'm a bit oblivious to this situation - what's Mankins' problem with the Pats? Not enough money? He's a millionaire playing on an awesome team. Life must really suck.

Yeah, pretty much. Belichick is fairly selective on who gets long term deals. The latest few examples being stars like Asante Samuel, Richard Seymour, and Moss, who weren't extended. And when they brought in Adalius Thomas for big money, which was out of character for the team, that didn't turn out well.

But like you said, Mankins should be happy to be an important piece on a great team, and the tag is worth around $10 million for an O-lineman.

At least he isn't as thoroughly loathesome as Albert Haynesworth or Carson Palmer, both of whom are high profile whiners despite being severely overpaid for generally disappointing performances.

Not loathesome, but he did hold out seven games last year.

I have a little sympathy for Palmer wanting out of the Cincinnati debacle. But just a little.
