Now what?

With Brett gone, I had to choose a new favorite Packer player. Just like my taxes, I’ve been putting it off for too long. After careful deliberation and sleepness nights, a decision has made. But first, here are a few of the runners-up.

Mason Crosby:  A new Packer but one with state champion bratwurst potential. Braveleg (as he is known to me) became the first player to man-boot a 50-yarder and game-winner in his debut. Hands down the steal of the ’07 draft.

Tracy White: The Ultimate Warrior of special teams and a Franklin Hillside favorite, T-White dominates every play McCarthy unleashes him for. Throw a live grenade, a feral Wolverine, and a case of Red Bull into a blender and you have Tracy White’s equivalent of an after-dinner mint.

AJ Hawk: I have no idea if he’s related to Lincoln Hawk of “Over the Top,” but it wouldn’t surprise me because AJ comes off as a quiet, heavy-duty, blue collar warrior. And if his rich father-in-law ever threatened to take his son, you can bet your last Leinies AJ would win that arm wrestling tournament in dramatic fashion. Wait…what?

But the winner and new favorite Packer is none other than Donald Driver. #80 has to be the most rugged, feisty human being since Bruce Lee. The guy darts around the field like a musclebound dragonfly and then when he catches the ball, it’s a whole new block of cheese as he zigs past defenders and pummels DBs to their soft sides. To the Don!
