Packers playbook ends up all over city street

You don't hear this everyday: a trash truck lost part of it's load and the remnants, strewn across several across several city streets, included part of the Packers' playbooks.

The pages in question were from the preseason game against the Cardinals and involved just special teams. The Packers told WBAY that they weren't concerned about the spill since the pages were recycled instead of shredded, which is what they do with sensitive material.

So why weren't they shredded? Because we're guessing the special teams game plan for the Cardinals went something like this:

Kickoff coverage: Kick ball out of end zone, come to sideline.
Kickoff return: Watch ball sail out of end zone, come to sideline.

At the time of the spill, Deputy Jason Vogel didn't have time to find out the nature of the game plan or its importance. He acted first and asked questions later. "I was just running radar here on (Highway) 57 here -- Riverside Drive -- and noticed a Waste Management truck going southbound and a bunch of papers flying out of the back of his truck," Vogel said Tuesday. "I notified a sergeant and told him what I had and that we might need to notify some people."

WBAY reports that it took crews about an hour to clean up the papers.

If this had happened in Foxboro, Bill Belichick would have issued a lockdown of all civilians within a five-mile radius of the accident, implemented search-and-destroy orders for any suspicious persons subsequently seen in the area, and scorched the region to insure all evidence had been destroyed.

Packers playbook ends up all over city street

The City's special team's unit had a more productive day than the Packers did. Nerf Football League, man this league is getting soft. Guess what? Concussions happens in sports...Period! The more they get coddled, the more likely they are to get injured.
I thought I saw Mason Crosby make a tackle on the street there while picking up the playbook.

Video provided by Bill Belichick.  Tom Brady, the newest addition to the environmentist movement, was out there picking up trash, funny some paper he was tucking into his pockets.  Al Haynesworth provided security. Tom Brady had to be reminded that Albert Hanynesworth is on his team now and there was little chance of him sacking him.  It did not violate a clause in his contract that defensive players are not allowed to be in the same state as him.  Ocho-Cinco provided commentary.  Robert Kraft paid the bills.


 Leave the humor to the professional writers. That effort was a god-awful fail.

Funny story.  But... if the Colts block a punt this Friday night, I think we have a spy in the "City of Titles"  (just kidding all you bashers, so lighten up).

If I were the cop that saw all that, sure as heck I would stuff a few of those in my squad and display at home.  Not every day you run across parts of a gameplan.  As useless as they are, pretty unique keepsake I think.
