    Packer fans are surprised Za’Darius Smith has an injury.
    Why don’t you worry about your own team? Ya know the one held scoreless in the second half and barley beat banged up Bucs team – then your QB took credit for the win because he saw something on the jumbotron. Packer fans just as narcissistic as their drug induced QB!

  2. Z Smith, Get healthy, You are a great player! The NFL needs you. Packer fan for Life.

    You are someone I root for no matter which team you are on.

  3. Z smith got paid and he’s hurt again, go figure, the Packers learned their lesson and the vikings got suckered into his line of bs.

  4. Why don’t you worry about your own team? Ya know the one held scoreless in the second half and barley beat banged up Bucs team – then your QB took credit for the win because he saw something on the jumbotron. Packer fans just as narcissistic as their drug induced QB!
    Wow, someone is triggered. Don’t think he was even making a comment about your team. Z Smith got hurt every year for us. That is all he meant.

  5. He took a big cut just to have the op to shove it up the Packers arse. He missed games he could have played because the pack refused to give him a new deal.he got even

  6. Nobody turns on a former player faster than Packer fans. The dude is making $3 mil a year and is listed as questionable for a game. The packers fans can slow their roll on how they suckers the Vikings.

  7. Always strange when fans claim players are faking injuries, or “they got paid so they don’t want to play now”. Every single one of these players know they have a short time to make money. None of them are taking a paycheck and then dogging it.

  8. The Raiders are who we (people with a brain) thought they were this season so far.

    Raiders fans are clueless, they’re the only ones that didn’t see this coming.
