Ryan Grant, who has not played since injuring his ankle in Week 1 (word is his recovery is going well, by the way) sent out this tweet Saturday night:
"1st n last tweet .Pack Fans might want 2 start booking flights 4 feb. Not looking ahead but u c we just have better players than other teams."
The only “other” team left would be the Chicago Bears – and they wouldn’t necessarily disagree with Grant. Devin Hester said before Week 17 that he didn’t want to face the Packers again in the postseason. Linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa gave a cold water, level-headed response to Grant that was so truthful it took all the fun out of it.
"You don't [respond to that]," Tinoisamoa said on ESPN 1000 in Chicago "It's kind of tough, because Ryan hasn't played all year. So what are you going to say? It would be different if he was playing. You don't really respond to that kind of stuff.
"The game is played on Sunday. We're not going to buy into that hype. We know the importance of this game. We know how we feel about it."
At least Bears fans might have a thing or two to say about Grant’s trash talking. And perhaps so will Grant's teammates given that, you know, they'll actually be out there playing this Sunday.
