Police in Minnesota town throw shade at Packers

NFL rivalries never sleep and they certainly don't obey the law.

At 2:47 a.m. Thursday morning, the Wyoming, Minnesota police department took a shot at the Green Bay Packers drafting ability.

Their initial tweet was meant to be a word of warning for drivers.

"While removing a dead a dead animal from I-35 this evening, I watched a vehicle on the other side slow down in a lane of travel almost to a stop," they said. "It's not acceptable to stop in the middle of a 70 MPH freeway to see what's going on. Eyes forward, people."

Three hours later, they quote tweeted it with this savagery.

"If you want to stop and stare at accidents you can either google them or watch footage of the Green Bay Packers trying to draft decent players. #CantGetItRight #Skol #GotEm," they said.

Twitter went nuts with gifs.

To be fair, the Vikings have some room to talk. Some of the Packers most recent drafts, most notably 2015, have left something to be desired. A quick reminder, Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins, Brett Hundley.

Plus, the Vikings did make the NFC Championship game last season before being blasted by the Super Bowl champion Eagles 38-7.

But Packers fans will have a chance for revenge this season with a large class of rookies and a hopefully healthy Aaron Rodgers ready to prove the NFL's doubters wrong. And Mel Kiper Jr. did give them the best 2018 draft grade in the NFL.
