Packers football: Tis the season ... to Overreact!

Yes, Davon House looked incredibly bad last Friday.

Yes, there is basically no backup plan if (knock on wood, Heaven forbid) Aaron Rodgers suffered any type of injury that kept him out.

The moral of this story would be relax! There’s plenty of time to get things ironed out people.

No doubt all the other 31 teams’ fans are also enduring the same type of reactions. Bottom line is football is back, and we as the media are just champing at the bit to blow even the smallest of detail coming out of practice or a preseason game way out of porportion.

Whether or not the media actually dictates how fans react could prove to be a whole other animal in its own right.

A few examples of this at its finest would have to start with the play of Davon House.

He admittedly played possibly the worst game of his career and was being beat by receivers that will be lucky to make the Cardinals roster out of camp.

While his play did warrant an outlash from fans and media alike, we should at least give him credit for being accountable and owning up to his play, or lack thereof.

On the opposite side of the ball, David Bahktiari earned high praise from the Packers Nation filling in nicely for Bryan Bulaga. Yeah, he did a nice job, but can he hold up throughout an entire game let alone an entire season? And while no one is quite able to make all that much sense out of signing Vince Young, hopefully he can catch on faster than Graham Harrell and B.J. Coleman have.

But then again there’s still time, guys.

Then there’s the injuries. I’m sure the majority of the Packers Nation would agree that Eddie Lacy would have been able to punch that ball in at the end of the opening drive on fourth and goal.

I hate sounding like a broken record here but let’s take a step back and just breathe guys, it’s only the middle of August and preseason week 2.

If anybody should be freakin out as of today, it should be the folks in New England with Tom Brady leaving practice with a bad Knee.
