It’s that time of year when you realize there are major differences in the way fans feel about “their” teams and the way it is viewed by those that play for and manage those teams. Pro football, as they say, is a business. And that sucks.
Departures of Driver, Woodson, Jennings Remind Green Bay Packers Fans That Breaking Up Is Hard To Do
