So Aaron Kampman is gone.. come on, are we really surprised? Kampman could no doubt get back to his previous form with the Jags, but then again he may NOT be the same dude who electrified the defense with his QB sacks when neede at cricial times. It isn't an easy call but this is the NFL as we see it today...big business. I say we move on, develop the young studs we have in LB's like Jone's and see whar happens. Happy for Kampman I do wish him well, but will he see a Super Bowl any quicker with the Jags than with the Pack?

The answer is yes. He plays for the Jags now. He's not going to see a Super Bowl with a team he doesn't play for unless it's as a spectator. I doubt that is what you meant. In any event, I assume every player wants to play where they are wanted and can be productive. I wish Aaron luck.

He will not see a SB quicker probably. I am happy Kampman got a good deal this late in his career; he's a good guy and teammate and that is great. The jags are a decent team, but their biggest move will probably be to L.A. People on this blog can say what they want, but GB is moving in the right direction. I have no use for folks who "hope" they fail to prove their warped reasoning. Kampman is a class act and in the minds of Packer fans, here will always be. The same won't be said for the Walkers, Hunt's, Mckenzie's, Sharpers, Favre's whom all leave a bad taste in many fans mouth. They made the bed themselves and after their done playing, only Favre will get some kudos; just not as much as once was.

Kampman said after his 4yr 21M deal with GB 4 years ago,he said he loves GB and said hes happy as he is getting respect with this deal and said he will get one more pay day after this one.and he was right,he played his 4 years and got his one more payday, only difference is,he prob.didnt think it would be with someone else.Im glad he got his payday,thanks for the memories and good luck in your new home!
