Pre-draft reports on Perry are somewhat spotty - he'll have to transition from DE to a 3-4 OLB, but current Packer OLBs Jamari Lattimore, Vic So'oto, Frank Zombo and Erik Walden were all college DEs, so position coach Kevin Greene does have experience helping guys through the transition. Scouting reports say that Perry is explosive, but did gain a lot of leverage from having his hand on the ground...

  You have to love guys who don't take themselves too seriously. Apprently this all stated as a joke for the guys to give to their position coach, but since it turned out so well, they sent it to the whole staff. One of them, it seems, leaked it to the press. This sort of thing is too good to be true, really. These guys will never live this down. On the other hand, they're getting a lot of press...

In a random poll of 700 Americans done in mid-December by Public Policy Polling, 22% of respondents said that the Green Bay Packers deserve the nickname "America's Team." Only 11% said they'd give the title to the Cowboys. Additionally, when asked about their opinion of teams, the poll showed that 57% of respondents see Packers positively. Only 13% have negative opinion of Green Bay. Furthering th...
