Random Thoughts


Random Thought #1: Shouldn’t the Packers be talking to Grady Jackson?  The large former Packer DT is currently unemployed but is looking to play again this year.  The Packers traded away Corey Williams, continue to deal with Justin Harrell’s injury problems and now have Johnny Jolly’s drug issues (allegedly).  They’re going to need another fat guy in the middle.  I’ve lost some weight, so I’m no longer available.  But Grady Jackson is.  They should call him.

Random Thought #2: The Patriots signed rookie Jerrod Mayo today.  In three years, Mayo may well be considered the best player in the 2008 draft.

Random Thought #3: I’m in Detroit right now and watching a TV commercial for the Detroit Lions.  Clips of very intense Lions are interspersed with music that is meant to convey epicness (as Andy might say).  The Lions confront their fans: “Do You Believe in Now?” That is the question and in the background vieweres see Jon Kitna barking out signals, presumably ready to throw a pass to in the general direction of Mike Furrey.

Is there any Lions fan who would answer “Yes!”?

    Grady won’t be the last person they’ll call, but he won’t be the first. Grady is old and has bad knees. I have yet to see Thompson turn to a player over 30 as a free agent – he’d rather scour the waiver wire for young potentials than waste a roster spot on an older has-been stopgap.

    He might call Grady in-season, but for training camp? I don’t see it.

    There’s a reason Grady is unemployed. Did you see any Jaguars games last year? At this point, Colin Cole is a better option…
