Packers Morning Buzz: McCarthy more aggressive than most
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
We’ll start with Pete Dougherty’s latest column looking at the stark truth regarding Jerry Kramer’s possible enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
This is Jerry Kramer’s last chance for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The 82-year-old former Green Bay Packers guard has been a finalist in the Hall voting 10 previous times, and 10 times he has failed to get in. The last was in 1997 when, like this year, he was a seniors committee nominee.
If he’s voted down this time, there are too many other worthy seniors candidates for him to get another shot down the road. The issue will be decided, for good.
So will the 48 Hall of Fame selectors meeting Saturday in Minneapolis vote him into the Class of 2018? Is there much reason to believe this outcome will be different than the last 10? Will he finally get in when the results are revealed Saturday night on the NFL Network?
The best guess from this Hall of Fame voter is, yes.
