The Green Bay Packers are my favorite NFL team in the universe. You will rarely hear me say anything negative about the team or the organization.
However, I have heard that the Packers organization is planning to take the team Super Bowl photo without the 15 players that are listed on IR. No Ryan Grant, no Nick Barnett, no Jermichael Finley… and the list goes on.
This is absurd! Every one of those men contributed to the team getting where they are today. Whether they were injured on the field in battle, or injured during practices.. it doesn’t matter. They are a part of the 2010 Green Bay Packers TEAM and should be included in the Super Bowl photo.
If this is a matter of timing, the current players arrive on Monday, picture day is Tuesday and the IR players arrive Thursday.. I have a solution. Don’t take the photo until Thursday. There. Fixed that for you.
Seriously, the Packers fans would much rather have a picture that includes the entire team. Not a picture of those who were fortunate enough to survive this brutal NFL year without season ending injuries.
