Google image search=fail. I typed in "Aaron Kampan" into their search engine and lo and behold page 1 contains THIS picture of Cullen Jenkins. Now either Cullen Jenkins is in control of google's image search function and no matter what you type in you get this picture, or google needs to get it together. I mean if I can't trust google what can I trust. Do I have to go back to Yahoo! like it's freakin 1997 or something google? Anyway here's a more accurate photo:
Now that I look at them side by side I can see where the confusion came in. Anyhow you may have heard that Kampman signed a 4 year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars over the weekend. Hopefully their tens of fans will appreciate him like Packer nation did. Honestly this is one of those situations where you can't be mad at Kampman because he was nothing but class his entire time here, he just didn't fit into the new defensive scheme. You can't be mad at the new defensive scheme because for the most part it was effective, minus that whole giving up 51 points in the playoff circus. And you can't get mad at Ted Thompson (and most days I look for a reason) for not ponying up 27 million for a guy who was a fish out of water in the 3-4. Just wish him well and hope he has a great rest of his career unless he's playing Green Bay.
It's too bad too because not only did Kampman put up great numbers during his tenure in Green Bay, he was a no-nonsense player with the media and never complained even though the Packers went out of their way to put in a new defense where he didn't necessarily 'fit.' Instead of complaining to the media or defriending them on Facebook, he tried his hardest to learn it and succeed. And although it looked like he was getting better right before the injury, he was essentially trying to relearn football. It's like when my buddy Doug and I had a Madden bet during college in 2005. We played Madden once a week for 17 weeks, and whoever won the most games bought a keg for Brewers opening day. Problem was I played on Playstation and he played on Wii. So when we played on Nintendo I just couldn't get my bearings, Playstation was my 4-3 defense and the Wii my 3-4. So that's pretty much what Kampman was going through. Bonus word: kampman.
PS: There's no way I could ever go back to Yahoo. I'm German, and once I change something, that's it. Like when I upgraded from Dos Prompt to Windows in 1995 January. No going back now.
