Default Keyshawn and the Pack

Under consideration: McCarthy confirmed the team's interest in free-agent wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson, saying the opportunity to add someone who can help the team would never be overlooked.

"I think any time you can upgrade your football team, whether it's a veteran or a younger player, it's something you have to look at," McCarthy said. "Obviously, Keyshawn's been very effective, very productive in the National Football League. I think you have to look at all those situations and that's what we do."

The Packers have an interest in signing Johnson, but they are competing with a lot of teams and probably would have to outbid the rest to get him to play in Green Bay.

Default Re: Keyshawn and the Pack

I doubt it will be enough to pacify Lord Favre who is said to have been 'royally' (pun intended) p*ssed at the Packers missing out on Moss.

Personally speaking, when you have a team with as many areas to address as Green Bay have you should be looking to give young talent a chance to prove themselves in the NFL.

I think Keyshawn would be a nice pick up for a number of teams, but only if that team was within touching distance of the postseason.

Adding a guy like Keyshawn, a 'last piece of the jigsaw' type, will do little to enhance the Packers long or short term prospects.

I think Chicago, San Diego or Jacksonville should make a move on this guy - i'd also throw the Steelers in there too (but I don't think they will pull the trigger).
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
