Check off one more resigning for the upcoming season.. overlooked unless they fail. He has been pretty darn "goode".


Quote:
The Packers haven’t had a major issue with a snap on a field goal, extra point or punt in the five years that Brett Goode has been their long snapper.

If things continue that way, they’ll be secure on those all-important plays for at least the next 3½ seasons.

Goode signed a three-year contract extension, according to his agent Kevin Gold, who confirmed the signing in an email to the Press-Gazette this morning.

The deal was actually signed on Oct. 13 but never announced by the team.

“I’m very happy for him and glad he is staying where he belongs,” Gold said.

In 2011, Goode signed a similar extension that added two years to his contract. That deal was set to expire after this season.

I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Goode does a good job. I have nothing against him personally. I simply wish the LS was one of the OL and GB could save the roster spot for another position. But then the days of having the punter who is also a QB or K who is a position player as well are long gone.

Glad they were able to come to terms.

Another excellent move. Maybe Ted Thompson should run for President.

Remember how Goode became our long snapper?

Rob Davis had just retired. He had been our long snapper for many years. He took a job with the front office.

Anyway, Ted brought in a new kid and he was doing great.

Then, in the LAST PRESEASON GAME, then-punter John Ryan went off script. Under a heavy rush, he pulled the ball down and ran with it, getting a first down.

HOWEVER, in the ensuing chaos of the broken play, our new long snapper went down for the year with a knee injury.

Rob Davis couldn't come out of retirement to help us out, because of a rule designed to prevent teams from stashing players in front office gigs.

Goode was working laying concrete driveways in his hometown, when he got the call.

He did great. Dude came in with less than a week before the first game, having had no training camp under his belt and performed well without a hitch.

John Ryan was cut the next day, and they brought in Derrick Frost, who turned out to be a disaster. BUT, he didn't change plays or leave the team in a lurch. Except by shanking punts, of course.

Man, that's going back to the early days of my Packers fandom. Frost was Mister-Kick-it-70-yards-then-shank-the-next-one-for-20, right?

No that was actually more Ryan than Frost. Frost was Mister-Kick-it-40-yards-then-shank-the-next-one-for-20.
