Letting Bishop go – suspicious


As I wrote in the last post, Desmond Bishop being the odd ILB out is ridiculous. I know he’s coming off an injury, but Hawk is coming off of chronic below-averageness and Brad Jones is coming off of never-doing-anything-at-all…ness. The whole thing leaves me suspicious. I think one of two things may have happened:

  1. The Packers either know or have reason to believe Bishop’s injury is likely to be a bigger problem than Bishop is claiming. (Though again, an injured Bishop is better than either of the other clowns in the middle.)
  2. Someone in the organization (McCarthy? Dom Capers? TT?) simply doesn’t like Desmond Bishop. I’m not sure how this could be the case when by all accounts he is such a good guy – and of course this wouldn’t make sense considering his on-field performance. But this isn’t the first time the Packers have essentially screwed Bishop. He waited far too long before being given the chance to play regularly on this team. He was good enough to start a full 2 years before he actually did take over as a starter.

Teams will come after Bishop big-time (they apparently already are). He will dominate again. And even if he ends up on the Vikes, I’ll still be a Desmond Bishop fan.

    3. Desmond Bishop is asking for more money than they’re willing to pay to a (soon to be) 29 year-old player coming off a serious injury.

    It could be a matter of looking ahead to players who are soon going to be free agents, and deciding who is going to be re-signed, and who will be let go.

    Vikes evidently were one of the first teams in line for Bishop. Geesh, what a pitiful example a football organization. Will they ever realize they cannot win by simply acquiring Packer castoffs (however I do use the term castoffs with great trepidation when it’s Jennings & Bishop). Guess they’re trying to glean as much inside info as possible.

    Finally some sense.
    Have you ever read the blather that passes for commentary under the Sentinel Journal Packer Stories?
    A total peer on peer homer fest.
    The more sense one makes, the less they accept you.
    It’s like a pecking order of Packer fan chimpanzees.
    If you want a good laugh, read the comments by fans under the Packer Plus stories in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
