1. Another Tidbit About that Stupid Picture Controversy - Quick little post tonight, as the Super Bowl news is at a bit of a lull today, and also personal matters have arisen. But no matter the issue, there's always time for The Bucky Channel! I was going to skip one altogether, but by golly I just have to talk about the picture controversy one more time! McCarthy was asked about the whole deal at his news conference today, and he was visibly upset that Nick Barnett and Jermichael Finley brought it up in the fashion that they did. Apparently Aaron Rodgers and Charles Woodson approached McCarthy and asked him to change the schedule so that everyone could be included, and now all is well in Packer land. I only bring it up because it's seemingly all anyone wants to talk about this week. "If that's the biggest issue that we have in our preparation, we are going to have a hell of a week," McCarthy said.
2. Another Could Have Been a Bear Story - We've all heard about how the Bears had James Starks on the phone, said they were going to draft him, but then didn't. Now the story about how Sam Shields could have been a Bear as well. He wasn't as close to being a Bear as Starks was, but still an interesting tale.
3. Another Steelers Injury - First Maurkice Pouncey, now it looks like defensive end Aaron Smith is out as well. Smith has been out for some good time, but was hoping to make his return in Dallas.
Sorry for the shortness, but to make it up to you, here's some info on prop betting on the Gatorade shower!
