Just Plain Stupid

This morning I read perhaps the dumbest thing ever written. Every week, the Green Bay Press-Gazette has a question and answer session with its Packer reporters.

Readers are allowed to ask questions, while the knowledgeable staff answers them to the best of their ability. Most of the questions warrant merit, but this week I had the pleasure of reading perhaps the dumbest question I have ever seen. It went something like this.

"I was extremely disappointed in the play of Nick Barnett tonight. If he wasn't taking bad angles, he was getting easily blocked out of the play. Against a very physical line and back like Dallas has, do you think McCarthy should consider playing a more physical LB like Bishop on some more of the run downs/early downs?" - Capn Crunch

Are you serious? Take Barnett out more? You have to be kidding me. Now I know some of us get excited after a loss, but this is plain stupidity. I can handle the occasion fan who thinks we should trade Driver or something asinine like that, but swap out Barnett for Bishop - come on.

Nick Barnett is the leader of the Packer defense. He stuck through the pain of a severely bruised elbow for most the Cowboy's game, not to mention he is the chief wearer of the radio helmet afforded to defensive units this season.

Desmond Bishop is tough, we have all seen the hits. He is hardly a Nick Barnett though.

If you're going to ask a question, at least try and make it one that doesn't come from the land of unicorns and the end of the rainbow.

Maybe we should bench Kampman too - I hear Jeremy Thompson looks pretty good.

Don't embarrass yourself.

After seeing how badly Rodgers performed against the Cowboys (i mean, the kid got sacked five times!) do you think there's any chance that the Jets would be willing to trade Favre back to us? For, like, the pick they gave us plus our first rounder next year and Ted Thompson? We need Brett!
