Job Creation: The Pack Versus Barack

An NFL-themed question about who created the most jobs last year, by blogger Fishersville Mike, as found by another blogger, Grandpa John:

After the Packers v. Bills game, Buffalo released quarterback Trent Edwards.

During the Packers v. Eagles game, the Packers injured Philadelphia quarterback Kevin Kolb. Philadelphia then had to play backup quarterback Michael Vick.

During a playoff game against the Eagles, the Packers injured Michael Vick and another backup was needed.

After the Packers v. Cowboys game, Dallas fired Wade Phillips.

After the Packers v. Vikings game, Minnesota fired Brad Childress.

Four weeks after losing to the Packers, the 49er’s coach, Mike Singletary, was fired and replaced.

During the Bears playoff game, the Packers injured Jay Cutler and backup Todd Collins
forcing the Bears to go with 3rd string quarterback Caleb Hanie.


Is it just me, or did the Packers create more jobs than Obama last year?

To be honest, I think that’s a topic best explored in the Canadian Football League.
