Okay. . .so the usual Packerrubes are in here telling us that losing Michael Bennett is the end of the universe and he's going to have to have his leg amputated and so forth and so on.
Are they stupid? Honestly, are they? (Not ALL the Packer fans that come here are stupid, mind you. . .just the ones that constantly project gloom and doom for the Vikings on a Viking board.)
It's funny. . .we heard the same thing last season. . .except it was along the lines of "You don't have Bennett and you're coming to the BRAND NEW Lambeau Field in Week 1 and all the great Packer legends are going to be there and the Packers are going to KILL the Vikings."
We didn't have Michael Bennett then, either. In fact, our RB's that day were
2 of those guys aren't even employed by the Vikings any more. The other RB, Onterrio Smith, didn't even see the field that day.
We didn't seem to have any problems then without Bennett, and we won't have any problems now without Bennett either.
Packer fans have enough to worry about with their own team. . .questions like
"Why the hell are we keeping 2 punters?"
"Hey, I thought it was the system in Cleveland. . .does Tim Couch ACTUALLY suck?" (Answer: Why yes. . .yes he does.)
"We only have 4 WR's, and at least 2 of them have injury histories. What the hell do we do if one of them gets hurt?"
"Are there any other teams carrying 3 fullbacks on their Opening Day roster?"
