The Green Bay Packers looked like crap in Friday's scrimmage, as the first-team offense did virtually nothing, while the second-team defense looked as bad as Green Bay Preble would have against the Buffalo Bills.
Now comes word that the Packers have released rookie punter Bryce Benekos, leaving the job in the somewhat-shaky hands of second-year pro B.J. Sander.
Sander, you might remember, was the Packers' third-round pick in 2004 out of THE Ohio State University. Oh, yeah, and the Packers traded up in the third round to get him.
You read it right. The Packers traded up in the third round to draft a punter. And you wonder why Mike Sherman is just the coach now.
Anyway, Sander was so sharp in the preseason last year that they signed Brian Barker, who was driving a steamroller or something at the time. Barker punted all year (poorly) while Sander spent his season with the third quarterback and second-string long snapper on the weekly inactive list.
And now Sander is the team's starting punter. Pardon me if I don't screech in excitement at the prospects.
