I remember Donald Driver on the sidelines at Super Bowl XLV when Jordy dropped a pass.

DD gritting his teeth & saying...C'mon Jordy! Then Jordy makes a play getting the reception down inside the 5. DD: That's what I'm talking about Jordy!!

I'll also never forget how many DB's would be like...."I got him!" & Point at Jordy, then Jordy would run right by them. Greg Jennings would say how everybody underestimated Jordy with his deceptive speed & probably because he was white. Always made me laugh....😆😁

I remember when Jordy was drafted. Other "highly rated" WR's, like Donnie Avery & Devin Thomas going before him. TT was brilliant in drafting him. 

Good times. Enjoy retirement Jordy.

It's only natural to want to see our warriors battle forever, and makes us sad when they are no longer able to.
Then we get to bask in the warm glow of nostalgia, recalling our favorite memories of them.

Mine is his mastery of the sideline. I can't recall anyone better. 

Best wishes and enjoy retirement!
If you can teach our young guys how to run routes and create that catch 'halo', we'd always love to see you in Green Bay!

Congrats on your retirement Jordy.  I hope you use your popularity to help forward the plight of the American farmer and all that needs to be done to get farmers an equitable profitability again.   Be it dairy, hogs, beef or grains which I know you are involved with please help out.

Since you are not affiliated with ag you have no idea what is going on.   Farm bankruptcies are at an all time high, greater than even during the Great Depression.  But that is O.K., you can just go to Wal-Mart and buy your food.  And my message to Jordy is so much different than all the others, to Jordy, or Clay or Cobb?  Go **** yourself.

No, just worried about many of my farmer friends and family members who have been having financial problems for a long time.  Oh, and farm suicides are up dramatically. maybe you have investigated some? 

It is very sad that it seems like family farms are extremely hard to keep going and the only thing that can be done in some cases is to sell the farm and land to a corporation.  There's a certain character to family farms that corporate farms can't duplicate.  The more family farms that disappear, we lose a little bit of history and character with it.

I grew up on a family dairy farm that had been in the family for 130 years. My father forbid any of us from working on the farm after college - he had a graduate degree in economics and decided to return to the family farm in the early 1970s. He told us it would not be economically feasible as a career after his generation. We still own the land but it is now all rented out for pickles (technically cucumber) growing.

A few years back, during an interview, Jordy said that when he retires he wants to go back and work on the family farm. Jordy would definitely care for the plight of farmers. Nice sentiment, Ammo!

TV cameras never did justice to his speed. We saw him run towards us during a game, outrunning everyone else - it was amazing.

It was 5-6 years ago at a game in Buffalo in December. The Pack struggled all game and were losing by 3 I believe in the 4th quarter. With the ball around the 25 yard line 2nd and short, Jordy runs the fly and is 15 yards past everyone.  I am standing up in my Green and Gold screaming as it is going to be a 75 yd td pass - the ball is perfectly thrown - and it goes thru his hands.  I’ll never forget his anguish, on the field, and then on the sideline.  

Having grown up a farm boy, I rolled with laughter at the story of him taking teammates back to his farm and having them impregnate a cow by artificial insemination.  

I miss Jordy, but am thankful for the many football memories and off the field stories of care and compassion.

I was there. 3rd row up behind the Packers bench. Signaling touchdown whilst the ball was still 15 ft from Jordy. I felt like the idot Viking fans signaling "Good" as Blair Walsh's kick was going wide left!

We must have been close together as we were 4-5 rows behind the Packer bench. The Bills fans were silent as they saw the play evolving, and then jubilant as I like you, felt like that idiot Viking fan.

You weren't  the Packer fan  that got thrown out for throwing popcorn at the little girl who was getting her picture taken with Buffalo Bill were you?

No. 😂. I was with my extended family of 12. There were 6 Packer fans and 6 Bills fans.  And I took my dad to his first and only pro football game at age 83.

TT traded back and got Jordy too.  Remember some fans wanted them to stay put and draft that TE Keller........

Reminded me a little of when TT traded back with the Patriots.  Pats got that garbage WR from Florida and Packers got Jennings.  I know TT gets a lot of flack these days but he was as good at the draft as anyone from 2005-2010.

Michigan Packer2 Your father is a wise man!  I didn'y grow up on a farm but a lot of my friends did- and you have to admire the work ethic farming/dairy farms instill but you still have to make a living.  Most of my friends unloaded the farms as soon as they inherited!

Bears apparently trade Jordan Howard to Philly for a 6th rounder next year.

Boy on its face, this seems like poor value for a good RB. I get that he might not be a perfect fit in Nagy's offense, but who is gonna replace him ? More wear on Cohen, or Mike Davis ??  If Pace is depending on the draft, good luck with that plan when you don't have any picks this year. 

Philly got a very good RB for a bargain price.

Same for my family.  My uncle was a very sucessful farmer and he highly discouraged his kids to continue working the farm once he retired and basically demanded that they go to college instead of farming.  He always said even as a medium sized farmer he had a hard time keeping up with the big farms.

That's a really weird trade, plus it's a 6th round pick in 2020 so they don't even get a pick this year. 

Howard's production dipped mostly because Nagy couldn't figure out how to use him but despite that, he still neared 1000 yards, had like 150 yards receiving, and grabbed 9 TD's. And he's like 24. 

The kid is obviously very talented. I don't get how you just dump that kind of talent for a flippin' 6th rounder. A very Giants-like trade.

Agreed.  And frankly it kind of ticks me off, why trade someone within your own conference that's likely going to make them nothing but stronger?  I can see trading him, but if you're going to trade him for almost nothing, trade him to the Pats or Dolphins or Bills, etc. where you're not helping to strengthen a team within your own conference.

"You would have to be crazy to continue farming".  My dad.  

Funniest thing was when he'd get a massive subsidy check.  "Oh, that should maybe cover a part for one of the multiple tractors".

Or the teacher in one of my sister's econ classes talking about how many Mercedes you could buy vs. a tractor.

"Go plow a field in a Mercedes and tell me how luxurious it is".
