Green Bay has been practicing the barrel roll play for years; glad to see it finally used in a game.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP)—As far as Aaron Rodgers is concerned, that should just about silence any further questions about why the Green Bay Packers didn’t work out as a team during the lockout.
So the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers appear to be underdogs going into this NFL year. Philadelphia is the new it team. New England is the darling of many to win it all. Even Atlanta, Detroit, and a few others seem to be getting more attention than the forgotten Packers.
Bring it on.
The season kicks off tonight on NBC!
The Green Bay Packers will host the New Orleans Saints to kick off the NFL season on Thursday night! NBC is spending millions to promote and produce the game, so it should be fun – the closest the city of Green Bay will come to hosting a Super Bowl.
Here are some thoughts on Green Bay’s schedule and the schedule itself:
– The Packers will be the first team in NFL history to play on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. It will be nice to see the Pack perform for the nation on all the holidays!
– Five of the first eight games are on the road
– Looking to the middle of the schedule: Three games in ten days? Egads! That’s a lot.
– Lots of late games this year! And five games are in prime time or on a holiday. I suppose that’s to be expected when you’re the champs.

As a fan of the Green Bay Packers, Sunday was a special day for me that I’ll remember the rest of my life. Here are some photos I’d like to share:
Before the season began, I visited Indianapolis and Green Bay. Then I picked up not one, but two magazines that predicted the Indianapolis Colts would play Green Bay Packers in the Super Bowl!
For those of you who don’t really care much about the NFL but watch the Super Bowl for the stars and the commercials… or even if you don’t care about the Super Bowl at all, let me let you in on a secret:
Making the Super Bowl is hard. Really hard. Let me explain…

Me and Keely at Aaron Rodgers’ first game
28 teams eliminated. Four left. Three games to play to determine the champion.
It was quite a weekend of football. For four teams, their games ended in jubilation. Four teams that have won Super Bowls before and know that they are so close to returning to the mountain top. For four other teams, it was the agony of defeat. Two of them, teams that have never won the Super Bowl.
The AFC and NFC have mirrored each other, with the 1 seeds losing, and the 2 and 6 seeds advancing the championship games. It is only the second time in NFL history that the two 6 seeds simultaneously knocked off the two 1 seeds.
