    Does anyone know if the Packers Family Night scrimmage will be broadcast again this year? I think it's Saturday night.

    Since the Sunday game is at the Titans, I assume we'll also see some sort of tribute to Steve McNair either before the game or at halftime.

    I usually avoid pre-season games for the most part... but on that basis alone I plan on tuning in to see what they do for him.

    Im ready. Not super excited that its preseason but glad some football will be back on. I just wish that the pre season was included in our package so we could still see all the games. Guess in preseason they are not all on Sunday's though.

    You mean the last one where the Steelers really didn't get the last touchdown per the various replays that showed only one foot touched down in the end zone? :lol::lol:

    That should spur some dialog.

    By the way.....I'm a Packer fan....so could actually care less....but it should give you Steeler and Cardinal fans fodder to discuss....:D

    I bet the Arizona folks are pumped for this season.

    I remember seeing (on the web) a copy of the full front page blowup on the newspaper in Arizona, showing the feet of the Pittsburgh receiver where both feet were clearly NOT touching the ground. Some of the Steelers even joked about it in interviews after the game...so they likely know they got away with one.

    But not caring about either team...yes....I'm looking forward to the NFC Central race.

    The Packers are actually one of my favorite teams as well. They are going to have their hands full in that division this year(even more so than last year), minus Detroit of course. The Bears are going to be REAL tough and the Vikings will be competitive as well.

    Yup.

    8-8 could win that division this year.

    Looks like the only persons on the planet who missed that were the refs.

    I absolutely loved the Titans throw back uniforms. Those helmets looked sharp, I love that color blue. And while I never cared for the standing still buffalo on the Bills helmet, there was something about it in combination with the jersey that I liked.
