Packers special teams playbook set free into the wild

packerspapers

We have breaking news from Green Bay.  Pages from the Packers special teams playbook were found strewn on the streets Monday morning, when a waste management truck lost “part of its load.”

Thankfully, deputy police officer Jason Vogel was there to see the mess.  And WBAY-2 was there to document the hour-long cleanup before making it the top story on that night’s newscast.

“We got everything that we could. We’re pretty sure we’ve collected everything that was spilled,” Vogel said.

There’s really not a lot we can add to this awesome video, but we have confirmed it is not a Daily Show spoof.

The Packers told WBAY that they are not concerned, despite witnesses claiming a striking resemblance between the garbage truck driver and Bears G.M. Jerry Angelo.

    Oh no, even though with the new rules Mason Crosby will boot the ball all the way into the end-zone, teams now know how to return every kickoff for a touchdown against us!

    Im waiting for someone to start blaming BB

  4. dccowboy says: Aug 24, 2011 10:31 AM

    Did these guys ever hear of a shredder?

    Now I guess you’ll have Vikings operatives rooting through the landfill looking of complete copies of the Packers offensive and defensive playbooks.

  5. 3octaveFart says: Aug 24, 2011 10:33 AM

    I’m sure there’s a reason why the playbook was in the garbage to begin with.

  6. packerfanfornot4life says: Aug 24, 2011 10:34 AM

    this is like 2 days old

  7. santorin4 says: Aug 24, 2011 10:35 AM

    It’s a decoy!! Go Pack Go!

  8. packerjer says: Aug 24, 2011 10:35 AM

    The Packers are throwing away their special teams playbooks?

    Good.

  9. iamthorny says: Aug 24, 2011 10:35 AM

    The irony of the Pack’s special teams being “garbage”…

  10. scudbot says: Aug 24, 2011 10:35 AM

    That’s okay. Slocum’s game plans rarely produce anything anyway.

  11. biggerballz says: Aug 24, 2011 10:36 AM

    so why are the police picking up the “garbage” shouldn’t the packers be picking it up? I guess in GB cops eat donuts and pick up after the packers.

  12. thetigerreport says: Aug 24, 2011 10:36 AM

    No one needs special teams playbooks now.

    Come on man!

  13. Carl Gerbschmidt says: Aug 24, 2011 10:37 AM

    The Pack could tell the opposing team which way Cobb is going to run on each kick and they STILL couldn’t stop him.

    Go. Pack. Go.

  14. tombradysponytail says: Aug 24, 2011 10:39 AM

    Maybe each of the stockholders should chip in $.01 and buy them a nice shredder…

  15. phillyisinvading says: Aug 24, 2011 10:40 AM

    Packers are the team to beat in the NFC.

  16. edukator4 says: Aug 24, 2011 10:41 AM

    under kickoffs heading the page was blank

  17. biggerballz says: Aug 24, 2011 10:41 AM

    @phillyisinvading

    thanks captain obvious

  18. desmondbishoptutu says: Aug 24, 2011 10:46 AM

    After letting a 230 lb lineman slice through their kickoff team in New England, it was probably a good idea to throw the book away.

    Us? What position do you play?

  20. philtration says: Aug 24, 2011 10:51 AM

    It was actually a one page document printed over and over and all it said was…

    1. DO NOT KICK TO HESTER
    2. DO NOT KICK TO HARVIN
    3. MISS FIELD GOAL

  21. lildon96 says: Aug 24, 2011 10:51 AM

    I’ve already seen their playbook on Madden.

  22. thephantomstranger says: Aug 24, 2011 10:56 AM

    In Green Bay, the police have Super Bowl XLV emblems on their badges. I’m not making that up.

  23. rpiotr01 says: Aug 24, 2011 10:56 AM

    Considering their special teams performance the past decade, it was my impression that they got their ST playbook OUT of the garbage…

  24. boiler72 says: Aug 24, 2011 10:57 AM

    LOL – there’s Eagles fans in here saying the Packers are the team to beat in the NFC. Um, nice try, trying to put the bullseye and media/fan scrutiny back onto the defending world champs, but uh, no.

    The Philly Heat, er, I mean, Eagles, have all of that this year, thanks to their stupid Dream Team freak-out spending spree. The Packers will thank you for it.

  25. anarchopurplism says: Aug 24, 2011 10:58 AM

    The local salesman for Shred-it just drooled a bit.

  26. thephantomstranger says: Aug 24, 2011 11:02 AM

    This reminds me of the Brady Bunch episode where Bobby sees Marcia’s boyfriend from a rival high school try to steal Greg’s Westdale High playbook, so Greg creates a fake playbook that the boyfriend subsequently steals. Of course, Mike convinced Greg that he was being just as dishonest as the boyfriend was, and everything turned out all right in the end. This is a lot like that.

    Only in Wisconsin…..

    ….its all Dauber Dybinski’s fault

  29. vahawker says: Aug 24, 2011 11:10 AM

    Never heard of recycling.

  30. anarchopurplism says: Aug 24, 2011 11:11 AM

    To off-set the added cost of having to shred the playbooks, perhaps they could stuff the shredded remnants into small little yellow-cheese designed paper sacks and sold as official Cheese-head fire-starters!

    Now THAT could happen in Wisconsin!

  31. damnskins703 says: Aug 24, 2011 11:12 AM

    Who cares about special teams with new rule?

    despite witnesses claiming a striking resemblance between the garbage truck driver and Bears G.M. Jerry Angelo.

    ———————–

    Why worry.. even in this sort of situation.. all Angelo could do is drop the ball.. similar to his tenure in Chitown. :)

    None story.. really. Waste management more than likely was going to sort and recycle the load.

    And it is “only” special teams.. we aren’t very good on those units anyway.. this could only help. lol.

  34. joetoronto says: Aug 24, 2011 11:29 AM

    It shouldn’t be hard to find the driver of the only garbage truck in town.

  35. apm says: Aug 24, 2011 11:32 AM

    Oh, ya. That’s a good one then.

  36. NFLJunkie says: Aug 24, 2011 11:36 AM

    This is even funnier than the Greyhound bus that also “lost part of its load” on a Nashville interstate yesterday, including these canisters leaking suspicious-looking vapors, which forced the HAZMAT crew to come out.

    Turned out to be bull semen packed in liquid nitrogen.

  37. steveohho says: Aug 24, 2011 11:43 AM

    Someone looking like Bill Belichick was seen dumpster diving in the back of Packer headquarters.

  38. boiler72 says: Aug 24, 2011 11:46 AM

    “1. DO NOT KICK TO HESTER”

    Why not? They kicked to Hester about ten times combined, in the season finale and in the NFC title game. How did Hester do? End of story.

  39. hobartbaker says: Aug 24, 2011 12:01 PM

    Nearly all of the players and personel who were stuffed into the back of the truck at the time have been accounted for. Parks and conservation officers are still trying to collect a few who fled into the surrounding woods.

  41. granadafan says: Aug 24, 2011 12:19 PM

    Someone studied their history. In WWII, the British allowed the Germans to “discover” secret documents saying the Allies were going to invade France at Pas de Calais instead of Normandy. Tricky tricky.

  42. acmepacker says: Aug 24, 2011 12:33 PM

    so why are the police picking up the “garbage” shouldn’t the packers be picking it up? I guess in GB cops eat donuts and pick up after the packers.
    ——-
    I don’t know why the cops were picking it up, Waste Management lost the load and they are the ones who’ll be held accountable for the mess. I suspect they’ll be paying a fine to the city of Green Bay. As far as the police wearing superbowl badges, it’s the individual who makes the decision to wear one. BTW, we do recognize shredders here in Wi.
    Rumor has it that the Packers own one.

    Yup, more fake modesty from the GB loyalists. Next up, a slice of humble pie and a nice warm glass of shut-the-hell-up

  44. packmanfan says: Aug 24, 2011 12:56 PM

    It was found out that the driver of the truck was Brett Favre and the truck was headed in a southern direction.
    It was then spotted on the freeway heading towards Chicago.
    When the truck was later found in the Soldier Field parking lot, there was also a map of Michigan with Detroit circled.

  45. acdc84 says: Aug 24, 2011 1:21 PM

    Oh well, their special teams stink anyways. Nothing lost there.

  46. packerfantastic says: Aug 24, 2011 1:24 PM

    Oh no! Now other teams will know how to give up a 71 yd kick off return to a backup Offensive Lineman.

  47. boiler72 says: Aug 24, 2011 1:33 PM

    “Yup, more fake modesty from the GB loyalists. Next up, a slice of humble pie and a nice warm glass of shut-the-hell-up”

    More bitterness about nothing. It’s okay. Don’t be all upset, because Thompson, McCarthy, and Rodgers shoved it all up Favre’s ass, in the greatest display of revenge ever.

    How’d Favre do in his revenge war? Oh, that’s right – he threw to Tracy Porter, LOL. Ted wins, Favre loses, game over.

  48. kevinfromphilly says: Aug 24, 2011 1:44 PM

    Two things disturbed me about this. First, obviously, the Wizzgaaanzin accent of the Caldwell Banker lady. Second, why did they have the camera man get into the dumpster to take the shot of the reporter tossing away papers? Was his name Oscar?

  49. ruvelligwebuike says: Aug 24, 2011 1:55 PM

    I heard Slocum has one of the most detailed and impressive playbooks in the league. Right down to the holding penalties and false starts that are just assumed at this point.

    Are you assuming that he is a Vikings fan? Isnt it funny that a Packer fan will immediately assume anyone talking bad about the Packers is a Viking fan? Kind of like how Packer fans dont care so much about a Packer win but moreso about a Viking loss. Its sad fellas.

    Hmmm…..was that the same 2009 year that Favre KICKED the living crap out of the packers…TWICE… and Rodgers dropped kick the pack out of the playoffs?

    That year boiler?

    Thanks for the reminder……kicking the PACKERS TWICE in the face with the TERROR on your faces in 2009 IN LAMBEAU was the most beautiful thing ever…..was the VISA moment!!! PRICELESS!!!!!!!

    _________________________________

    Yeah – THAT year. Did Favre get any rings for his two stupid little regular season wins? LOL, nope. So, go ahead and tell us to eat some humble pie and to STFU this year – we don’t care if they repeat or not – it doesn’t matter. Ted wins, Favre loses, game over, deal with it. XLV is all that was needed to win the war. Go sit in your Vikings trophy case – there’s plenty of room, it’s empty.

    Super Bowl MVP’s –

    Rodgers – 1 and still going
    Favre – zero and no chance to get one, LOL

    Run along, bitter little loser, before Clay elbows you like a Limp Bizkit track.

  55. packfaninpackland says: Aug 24, 2011 5:05 PM

    On behalf of all Packer fans, can they throw special teams coach Shawn Slocum into the trash heap instead ???

    The Packers special teams coverage units have been among the worst in the league since he’s become special teams coordinator !

  56. bobnelsonjr says: Aug 24, 2011 5:27 PM

    I like the Super Bowl symbol on the Titletown Police badges.

    I think the “Titletown” stamped on the badge is far better looking than the latest World Championship Logo.

    World Championships keep coming but Titletown lasts forever.

    Sounds about right. Not smart enough to steal the OFFENSIVE OR DEFENSIVE PLAYBOOK.

    I’m quit sure they could sell these pages to idiotic Packer fans.
    Why not?
    They sold toilet paper to them and called it stock.

    Now these tools run around and call themselves “owners” or “stockholders”.

    Dummies.

    Having to go back two years is reaching a little. What was priceless was last year when Rodgers jogged off the Metrodome field up 4 touchdowns with 7 minutes left. What was even more priceless was sweeping the vikings AND winning the Super Bowl.
    By the way…Packers have won 7 out of 10 over the vikings.
    But wow…You guys have 2009. What a run. oops.

    It certainly was not the Bears, it had to be the Vikings. They have been scooping up the Packers trash for years.
