beast, beast, beast, if you think for one minute you are going to take over the position of Smokey’s most reviled PackersHome poster, you best think again. That’s my turf bud. Until he makes a stupid, nonsensical acronym out of your name, you ain’t even on the first team son.
Smokey doesn’t like criticism, well intended or not. (By the way, you used “their” instead of “there” on one of your earlier posts.) To disagree with Smokey in any manner is to invite his scorn and distain.
No other member has sent more PMs to moderators whining and complaining about his fellow members than Smokey. Amazingly he feels no need to show the same respect he craves in return.
It took me a while but I get it. I finally decided I would rather have Smokey posting here even with all his foibles than have him pack up and leave. I like the variety. Not many start as many posts as he does and he does so over a very wide range of topics. Kuddos.
I used to wonder about the larger font fetish. But I figured it is so much extra work it must be his vision and if it makes him happy so be it. That’s one of the reasons I like my touch screen laptop. It’s so easy to increase/decrease the font as needed.
Smokey is a loyal Packer fan. The larger the club the better. Let him warble on if it makes him happy. If he doesn't like people pointing out any of his errors don't torment the man. Ignorance is bliss.
As for the topic at hand, perhaps Simmons is the key. I can’t say for sure. Over the years, very few of the position coaches have received a lot of love for their work. They certainly get the wrath from the fans when the team struggles. If the defense steps up this year and the secondary is stellar I really don't care who gets the praise. Bring home the Lombardi and there will be plenty to go around for the players, position coaches, DC, HC and GM.
