Packers flip policy, get everyone in team photo

When 50 or so* members of the Packers roster placed on IR weren't invited to take part in the team's photo, and that caused quite a bit of commotion amongst the media, fans and the players.

As soon as the story mushroomed, though, players like Jermichael Finley and Nick Barnett quickly took to the Twitter-waves in order to quash any talk of insubordination.

Thankfully, the Packers reciprocated their team-first attitude by allowing everyone on the squad and IR to join in on the team photo.

According to Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the picture will take place in Dallas on the Friday before the Super Bowl and will feature everyone involved.

Hey, 'tis the season of overblown NFL storylines, and thankfully, this one can go die a quick death. Clearly, Green Bay would rather purchase, as Josh noted, a wide-angle lens than deal with a lot of unnecessary drama around a team looking to win as many championships without Brett Favre as they did with him.

I am sure Mr. Brinson is well aware that the Packers did not have anywhere near 50 players on IR.
Have you read his stuff?  You have more faith in him than I do.

The last thing the sentence was was funny.  If that was truly an "attempt to be humorous" he failed miserably.  But I don't think it was.  Not ironic, no reference for humor in any way.  So, he's either incompetent at sportswriting or humor.  Take your pick.

"a team looking to win as many championships without as they did with him"

Stupid writer. Only thing worse than a stupid writer is a stupid writer trying (and failing miserably) at being humorous.  Spare us the attempts of humor and TRY to report facts.  The Packers currently have the MOST championships of any NFL team with 12.  Of these 12, Brent was on 1.  Last time I checked, 1 is NOT greater than 11.  What a moron.

Shouldn't an approximation be kind of, sort of, maybe if you really stretch it, close?  No team has 50 or so players on the IR. 

Geez, get a grip and a sense of humor.  Both the sentence and the "*may be an approximation" were CLEARLY an attempt to be humorous.  I am sure Mr. Brinson is well aware that the Packers did not have anywhere near 50 players on IR.  It was a joke, lighten up.
