More Billy Schroeder Fallout.



Spectacular Sheboygan, Wisconsin


After Bill Schroeder finally retired last week, I was surprised to read about (on various websites) how many people though he was an first-class asshole. Well, a recent Rob Deomovsky chat on the Green Bay Press Gazette pretty much confirms these thoughts.

ROB DEMOVSKY: It's too soon to tell who will be the best quotes among the rookies. Heck, I haven't even had a chance to talk to all of the draft picks yet. But in my experience in the NFL, I've often found the best talkers to be the backup quarterbacks and the offensive linemen. The backup QBs are great because they're usually smart guys and they know everything about the offense. The offensive linemen are good talkers because they're typically pretty cocky, tough guys who aren't afraid to say anything. This team doesn't have too many guys who are difficult to deal with, but my all-time worst locker room guy has to be Bill Schroeder, the former receiver. He was the worst combination of cocky and thin skinned. I challenge you to find a reporter who liked dealing with him.

...and that is the nicest thing anyone has ever said about Bill Schoeder.

I'll never forget the game the little billy shroeder lost against the falcons some time ago by cutting off his route, apparently for fear of contact by the defense. I would also like to buy Woz's mom a drink.

My college roommate had a brother who was a scrub with the Pack for a couple of the Bill Schroeder years, and I can confirm, albeit third hand, that he said Billy was a Grade A butthole in the locker room.
