Is Daniels going to play?

It would be nice to see a full strength defense on the field, since I have read that Matthews is going to play as well.

They need a little time together before the opener.

Agree with Rodgers sitting, I think the division is easily won even with a slow start. With Jordy down for the season I have to believe that GB will not put up as many points as last year and the defense needs to improve. I think all three division rivals will test our run D early and often. Never really liked the Eagles and Chip seems like a real A-hole, but this will certainly test our D.

I think this passage by Zach Kruse is insightful and relevant:

Zook’s Big Test

"The Eagles should put a massive amount of pressure on Ron Zook’s special teams, and it will be interesting to see how his unit handles the test. Reserve running back Kenjon Barner has two punt returns for touchdown this preseason; an electric 92-yard score in the exhibition opener and a winding 62-yard touchdown last week. Last year, Philadelphia had seven special teams touchdowns, including four kick returns and three blocked punt returns for scores. Green Bay’s special teams won’t have an easy night. But that’s a good thing for a re-hauled unit looking to gauge where it is at before Week 1."


It will be most interesting, in my opinion, to see if "Coach" Zook can produce good results, especially with a purposeful commitment by the Packers to bring in players like Montgomery, Rip, and Jake Ryan, that have had significant success playing special teams.

this appears as if it may turn out to be a blowout loss at home. No D. Little offense and sucky special teams.

Can we get a returner that doesn't moronically take the all out of the end zone from 8 yards deep?
