Even though we think Tedy Bruschi may want to switch to decaf before the next time he criticizes the Packers for not practicing this offseason, perhaps the increased chatter has made an impact.
“At some point, if this lockout persists, then there is no doubt we’re going to get together,” Rodgers said via Jason Wilde of ESPNMilwaukee.com. “Guys have gotten in some great work individually, and some in groups of two or three. There’s a lot of guys in the same area working out, but at some point we’ll have to get together.
“I’m going to talk to Charles [Woodson] tomorrow at the event I’m going to for Greg Jennings‘ charity, and we’re going to put something together. Because it looks like it’s going to go on for a little bit longer, so it’s going to be important for us to get together.”
Rodgers later expressed reservations to Wilde via text message about whether the workouts’ risks (injuries) outweigh the rewards. The team also gets together next week to collect their Super Bowl rings.
We get the feeling that some teams around the league are only getting together out of peer pressure to look good. If Rodgers and the Packers don’t think it will help them, they shouldn’t bother just to please the public and Tedy Bruschi.
