Looks like the Packers failed to land Jimmy Smith with their Press Smear.

    Only five more spots more to drop, but "bush league" Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article fails to get the him down to the Pack. Effort noted and really disappointed with his treatment through all of this.

    On another note, I hope Jimmy does keep it clean in Baltimore. Stereotypically, I think of Baltimore as a rough city with lots of opportunity to get in trouble. Hope I'm wrong and that it will not matter anyways.

    Baltimore does have some rough areas just like Denver but they do have suburbs where the players live and they train in Owing Mills where there is a large Owing Mills mall (same idea with Colorado Mills). Honestly B-more is meh except for the harbor area which includes Camden Yard and the Ravens stadium.

    Seems like a good fit for him. A lot of strong veteran players and a veteran coaching staff to get him and keep him on the right track.

    These guys are all young adults with huge increases in salary so any player can get into trouble. There are plenty of examles of guys who were thought of as "model citizens" who got themselves into major problems in the pros and probably even more cases of guys who had a history of "incindents" in college who never have an issue in the pros. I am guessing that Jimmy becomes one of the latter

    This post is insane. The Packers do not want Jimmy Smith, they don't want a cornerback in the first round at all, they're in decent shape with Woodson still around, Sam Shields overperforming, and Tramon Williams possibly a Pro Bowler next season. And even if they did want Jimmy Smith, you think they would manipulate the local newspaper to trash that player? Because, according to your theory, all the other NFL teams can't think for themselves, they are randomly reading the Milwaukee newspaper, and decide to pass on Smith. Then the Packers take Smith, and the next day tell the paper to praise them for their pick. Is that the theory here? Smith did a ton of stuff he shouldn't have done, it's not one newspaper conspiring to take him down. ESPN, NFL Network, everyone was obligated to mention his off the field issues last night.

    I particularly like the "they smeared him" followed by "hope he keeps it clean." Nice style, having it both ways.

    On another note, the inner harbor is pretty cool. Anyone been in the aquarium? Passed up a chance to go through it once and was sorry later, as I heard it was pretty good.

    I know, I was just having fun with it. It was a sh*tty article, about stuff that shouldn't be in the press, in a remote northern city with no affiliation to the Buffs, near an NFL team that does have CB listed as a need on some previews for this draft. Just taking a shot back right at them, but you can call it insane, I don't care.

    I think it was a smear, which doesn't mean JS is innocent. But hey, that's my style.

    I'm thinkling JS has heard all of the neg press about him and will try to prove his distractors wrong.

    I think Jimmy and Solder are both in great situations for them to thrive. Now it's on them to live up to it. I think they will.
