While the Packers are 2007's NFC North Division Champions, they aren't packing their bags for Arizona. They gave us a good run, but seriously I don't think I can wait until fall. What to do. What to do.

Well I just killed five minutes reading this article on the Packers website 2007 Regular Season: By the Numbers. That was interesting. I can't afford to book a trip to Hawaii to watch the Pro Bowl. Not that Brett Favre ever goes anyway. And not that if he did, he and I would catch a beer together anyway.

Word on the street is that Favre and Packers Coach Mike McCarthy will be continuing discussions on whether Favre would be retuning to play another year in Green Bay, in the NFL. Hopefully this won't be a drawn out discussion. I need to know whether or not to buy a new #4 jersey for next years' games. I REALLY don't want to buy a #12 Aaron Rodgers jersey. No offense understand.

A key point for next season include expectations and how very different they will be coming off a 13-3 season vs. an 8-8 season the year prior. The Packers schedule will likely include more Sunday, Monday and Thursday night games; which are fun for the fans, but must be tough on the team as their recovery time is shortened. That said, if this NFL Network deal isn't worked out by then, there will continue to be upset Packers fans around the country.
