Packers guard Josh Sitton details his plans for surviving a zombie apocalypse to Jim Rome


“Stay low, guys. Zombies have a difficult time looking down.”

Of course, anyone with half a brain and no appetite for the organ has long ago made serious and detailed plans about how to go about surviving a zombie apocalypse, should one ever happen.

Tricked ya! It’s not a question of whether a zombie apocalypse will ever happen, it’s only a matter of when a zombie apocalypse will happen.

Green Bay Packers guard Josh Sitton would never have been fooled by my attempt as deception. He proved that more than sufficiently during a Monday appearance on “The Jim Rome Show,” explaining to the host how his upbringing and skills make him more than adequately prepared for the impending zombie apocalypse, especially when compared to the lack of preparedness of teammate and fellow offensive lineman Greg Van Roten (via

“He’s not a survivor,” Sitton said of Van Roten. “He’s a Yankee boy from up there in New York. He doesn’t know how to live on the land. I’ve been hunting for a long time. I know how to use a gun and clean an animal. He’s smart, I’ll give him that. He’s got me in that department, but I’m going to outlive him for sure. And he’s way worse of an athlete than me.”

Sitton also laid out his strategy for dealing with a zombie attack.

“You get to cold weather,” Sitton said matter-of-factly. “Zombies definitely don’t like cold weather and you already have a plan in place, people you trust that you have to be around. Then you have lots of weapons and you try to fortify yourself in a big place with a big old fence. Then you try to just rock on and kill lots of zombies. That’s honestly I hope how I go out someday, in a zombie apocalypse.”

Fascinating stuff. Something tells me Sitton is a big fan of “The Walking Dead.” But not as a piece of dramatic and terrifying fictional depiction of a dire future when zombies roam the earth. Nope. As a reality show and a training video. This is serious business, people. Dead serious.

Sitton did discuss Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ remarkable comeback against the Dallas Cowboys as well, including how he was almost in tears following the win. You know, if you care about such trivial matters. You’re better off preparing for zombies, folks.
