My good friend Al, who has the exceptional pedigree of being a Prep grad (and if you have to ask “which Prep,” well, never mind) has sent me this interesting commentary on the state of our economy:
Last year after the Packers/Bills game, Buffalo released quarterback Trent Edwards.
During the Packers/Eagles game, the Packers injured Philadelphia quarterback Kevin Kolb. Philadelphia then had to play backup quarterback Michael Vick.
During a playoff game against the Eagles, the Packers injured Michael Vick and another backup was needed.
After the Packers/Cowboys game, Dallas fired Wade Phillips and most of his staff.
After the Packers/Vikings game, Minnesota fired Brad Childress and most of his staff.
Four weeks after losing to the Packers, the 49er's coach Mike Singletary and most of his staff were fired and replaced.
During the Bears Playoff game, the Packers injured Jay Cutler and backup Todd Collins forcing the Bears to go with 3rd string quarterback Caleb Hanie.
General observation: The Packers seem to have created more jobs than Obama last year.
Chew on that piece of pigskin, folks.
