Countdown to the Packers Season Opener

There are only a few opportunities left for the Green Bay Packers players to get a good nights rest prior to the NFL opener against the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday. Quarterback Brett Favre has an opportunity to break all sorts of NFL records. The Green Bay Packers 2007 team has an opportunity to go to the Super Bowl; that is what is great about the NFL - all teams are on a pretty level field to start the season. There always seems to be a team whose expectations were low, but make it to the playoffs.

Looks like rookie running back Brandon Jackson, out of Nebraska, will get his first start this Sunday. In interviews Jackson has said he is very excited. "I just want to go out there and play up to the best of my ability and protect No. 4," Jackson said. Vernand Morency who is in his third year playing NFL Football was the anticipated starter at the position with Ahman Green taking a lucrative offer as a free agent by the Houston Texans, but an injury in the first practice has made the picture a little less clear.
