If the Packers can win this one, which they should, that will put them 3-1 in the preseason. This would be the best start since 2002, when the Packers went on to win the NFC Division and go 12-4.
Packers fans will have just one more chance to see the Green Bay Packer practice, as the last open-to-the-public practice will be held the Tuesday following Labor Day. All Packers practices will be closed to the public through the SUPER BOWL!
Green Bay Packers tickets for the preseason game against the Titans are still available and they are cheap! So go hit the streets of Nashville, TN!

The Minnesota Vikings finished the 2006 season 6-10, 2 games behind the 8-8 Green Bay Packers team.
WOW! I love me some Green Bay Packers football! The rain didn't let up for most of the day Saturday, but that didn't stop the 69,761 fans from cheering or the team from sticking it to the Seattle Seahawks. The final score of the Packers vs Seahawks game at Lambeau Field was 48-13. Nice. The most points scored by a Packers team in a preseason game in 69 years!
Brett Favre and the starting offense looked like they were in a much better groove than they did against the Pittsburgh Steelers the week prior, which resulted in a field goal, a touchdown and a handful of first downs. Bring in Aaron Rodgers and a few of the other second team Packers players, and the ball kept rolling.
James Jones, rookie wide receiver from San Jose, said it best, "Ain't no better feeling than scoring your first touchdown, the Lambeau Leap. I was just excited about that." Word.
The Green Bay Packers defense looked fierce (I know, I know, it's just preseason football). The defense amassed seven sacks, six forced turnovers and scored two touchdowns from Seattle fumbles. For people who bought cheap Green Bay Packers tickets for this game; they definitely got their moneys worth!

Brett Favre and the Packers offense started the game SLOW. In his four possessions at quarterback, my favorite number 4 failed to gain a first down and gained just 12 yards of offense. Rookies Brandon Jackson and James Jones, along with second-string quarterback Aaron Rodgers worked hard to produce three consecutive scoring drives for the Packers, one to close the first half and the second and third opening the second half of the game against the Steelers.
This is the time of year, you know it comes after one preseason game where Favre doesn't produce all that much, where Packers pundits start calling for #4's retirement. You have heard it before, no reason the 2007-2008 Green Bay Packers' Season should be any different. Phewy, Favre will be just fine taking the field for 4 quarters when the REAL NFL season starts in September.
"The thing about preseason that's kind of interesting is you're expected to do well," Aaron Rodgers said. "If you don't do well, everybody asks you why you didn't play well. If you do play well, people say, 'Oh, well, you moved the ball against the No. 2s.' So it's kind of a no-win situation. At the same time, I'm continuing to work hard and hopefully put together another good performance."
This Saturday, August 18, the Seattle Seahawks and Mike Holmgren arrive in Green Bay to get Lambeau Field warmed up for the regular season. How many snaps is Brett Favre going to take? More than 4 would be nice.
If you haven't seen Favre on Lambeau Field, this weekend or Thursday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars would be a good one as you can buy Green Bay Packers tickets below face value all over the place!
