Probably tape delayed.

I too want to see our starters come out of this injury free. I want to see the run/pass ratio. I know you can't put too much stock inot pre-season games but I always look for how the line is playing....seeing as I think that has always been our biggest issue.

I'm torn on if I am going to go to the game. I want to just to see things, but I also don't want to waste my time :^

So you don't believe in now, but you believe in feed me now :-D

I hope to see Smith show me that he has something special. Need to see him make people miss or miss people. (and I don't just mean blitzers :-b )
I want to see Gosdar blocking with athority.
I want to see Franchise get open deep and often.
I want to see Avril and DUIzon in action.
Lastly, I would like to see our D stop a team on the first drive. Just act like you were prepared and equiped to stop a team. Last X season it seemed like the endzone was the only thing that stopped opponants. I dread the idea of Eli going 4-4, 80 and a TD. Jacobs 3 carries for 28 yds...well you get my point.

OK,there is a 99% chance that I am going to go. Don't have too much going on tonight so I figured since I missed training camp, I'd like to see first hand some of the things I would be looking for. Line play, this is very tough to judge watching on TV, also how the WRs and CBs do with and against coverage, again very tought to catch on TV. I hope to bring you guys a little insight to the things you can't catch watching the broadcast on tape delay ;-D

You guys will have to go.

Remember, there are some of us who don't get the chance, no matter how poor the play is. :~(

That's bad. :-o :~( You know I was just wondering if there are any hopes this season. I mean so many of the past seasons have been new coaches and 1st round draft picks carrying our team, but what's been really major this year. A few normal things have changed. But that's just it, just normal. Not huge! So, what are we to hope for when nothing big happens. Maybe all the better I guess. No big anticipation of something great and new. Anyway, I can't see any stellar things coming out of this year, but I'll praise the wins, and "Boo" the hell out of the loses. Hope for a Packers vs. Jets Super Bowl played at Lambeau Field, with the entire Secret Service covering "# - who the hell cares". HopIng the Jackal is there. All while having some nice cold Sunday beers. ;-D
