    It will be our first trip to Lambeau since my son turned 21, I will probably get a little misty having a beer at Lambeau with my son.

    I want to try and make another game at Lambeau this year. Gonna be rough with my woman’s work and school schedule but if I get the chance I’m going.

    Packers looked REALLY good last night. Run defense didn’t at first but we didn’t have Mike Daniels in the middle.

    These “leading with helmet” and “roughing the passer” calls are ridiculous. The Vikings and the Packers were both called for STUPID ass penalties this weekend. I really hope this isn’t how the NFL will be this year. It’s out of hand. How are people supposed to tackle?

    For as crazy as it is for us fans, that’s what the ex players wanted as far as safety. The current players despise it because of lost playing time (no money) and fines.

    Interesting to see how it’s handled.

    I heard that they are working out the kinks in preseason. They are obviously reviewing all these hits post game. The ones that are driving the media crazy are going to be worked on. It’s not gonna be perfect.

    I sure hope you're right. A lot of change is needed to fix how bad the preseason has been.

    Im actually kinda getting sick of the “F the NFL” narrative. We get it, it pissed you off, so just stop talking about it.

    Some of us love to watch football and don’t want to hear the whining.

    I like the NFL as much as the next guy, protests aside, but if they don't get these penalties figured out it's going to be hard to watch many games.

    In the same boat. I will never stop watching football (but these uncalled for penalties are driving me insane).

    The coach who has to wear safety glasses is already explaining why the team he leads is going to miss the playoffs.:biggrin:

    Coach tears his retina, has surgery to prevent loss of eye sight, and Sota is jabbing fun at it because he's the coach of the Vikings. Classic.

    Lighten up Jake, you had no problem making jokes last season when Aaron got hurt so playing the puritan is not going to work.

    Don't recall making jokes about his injury, but sounds good!

    The more I hear about Baker Mayfield the more I like him.
