Packers Santa Ready to Stop Off at Lambeau Field

Packers Santa Visits Lambeau Field

Ho Ho Ho!

It’s been awhile since Packers’ Santa made an appearance around here, but with some of the Green Bay Packers players receiving early gifts of Pro Bowl selections, it got me thinking, what about some of the other guys – what could they really use?

So here it is, what Packers Santa will hope to be able to deliver to these Packers players:

Eddie Lacy – A bubble-wrap uniform – not so much for him, but more for those poor safeties that have to tackle him when he gets into the secondary.

Corey Linsley – Packers rookie of the year award.

Brian Bulaga – A memo with the correct pronunciation of his name sent to every NFL announcer.

Davante Adams – A page from a book – preferably the same book and page Aaron Rodgers is on.

Randall Cobb – Easy one – a big, fat 4-5 yr contract.

Andrew Quarless – The focus to run the right routes every time.

Richard Rodgers – A gym membership and personal trainer to chisel off some of that chubby backside he’s sporting.

John Kuhn – A white cowboy hat and a horse to rise off into the sunset on (whenever that day comes).

James Starks – For Jersey Al (a long-suffering Knicks fan) to stop, calling him John Starks on Twitter.

DuJuan Harris – A handoff not in garbage time.

BJ Raji – An infusion of the “Jersey attitude” Mike Daniels has.

Datone Jones – To live up to his First Round draft status.

Nick Perry – Ditto.

Mike Daniels – Team Captain status over Julius Peppers.

Sam Shields – A better nickname than “Sticky.”

Tramon Williams – One more contract from the Packers.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix – His second INT of the year against the same team his first came against – the Detroit Lions.

Morgan Burnett – For Sunday to be his seventh straight game with 8 or more tackles.

Matt Flynn – A comfy recliner.

Brett Goode – Continued anonymity.

Tim Masthay – An easier to say and spell last name.

Mason Crosby – The gift of silence from Jersey Al (Of course, it has to be earned).

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Go Pack Go from Packers Santa!

  1. Letroy Guion — A hearty vote of confidence from all those who disparaged him so heavily during camp and the early weeks of the season.

      1. Also guilty. Still rooting for Mike Pennel to get some playing time but the short term future looks bleek.

  2. I don’t want Burnett with a lot of tackles. How about an ILB doing what he’s supposed to? The ways a safety makes tackles…after a ‘backer miss, playing close to the line because 7 can’t stop the run, or after a pass completion. How many of those do we want? Granted, I’ll take tackles when they are needed…I just don’t want them needed.

    1. ILB’s (Matthews and Barrington) are doing pretty damn good since Hawk’s epic failed play against Kyle Rudolph. Sadly, I have an inkling that particular play will haunt Hawk even though it was not deserving of how dedicated of a player he was/is. I hope Hawk can have some type of positive impact in the playoffs to somehow erase that play. That was the play where everyone realized he really lost whatever little he had left in the tank. Peyton Manning also appears to have lost it. When it happens it happens quick.

      1. Burnett is making too many tackles to say our ILBs are doing what they should. Playing better, sure.

        1. I think you are confusing the system with how players plays. If ILBs control gap, RB will try around and that would be SS job to stop him, together with OLB. That is why Morgan has so many tackles!

          1. Great analysis Croat! The numbers since Mathews moved to the inside show that the run defense has improved, and that starts with people controlling their gaps. Burnett is also being used in creative ways to get him into the backfield so that he can make big plays ala Charles Woodson.

            Merry Chistmas! Go Pack Go!

          2. All you did is say 7 didn’t stop the run if the safety needs to tackle. I want the 7 to stop the run without safety help.
