Wouldn't be nervous if I was you. Packers were a fucking shambles last season and nothing they've done in preseason suggests they will be any better.

It will all be on Rodgers again.

I'd say completely revamping the defense suggests that might be better.

Been far too many false dawns with the Packers defense over last few years.

I'll believe it when I see it.

I’m not at all nervous as a Packers fan. This is very much like Villa at Spurs: a free hit and if we win great but as long as we’re not dicked it shouldn’t harm us too much.
As well as the rebooted defense we also have a new system to bed in offensively which hopefully will add some consistency rather than relying on No.12 to get us out of the shite... as good as that is when he does.

Looking forward to it....Go Pack!

Looking like the Raiders will suspend Antonio Brown before he even plays a regular season game

Whilst he is a dick, part of me wants to see him play at Tottingham's ground.

Oh and Beardown Chicago Bears

That would be ideal for him as they don't have a meaningful game until January. Surely he will have, ahem, sorted his helmet out by then.

Jamie Gillan arrived in the US as a rugby-obsessed teenager who had never watched American football and had no intention of playing the game.

Six years later, the Scot will make his NFL debut this week after securing the starting job as Cleveland Browns' punter.

Not one for neutrals... but a fantastic win for The Packers over Da Bears.

Well, at least we were 100% with our field goals...

And at least my instinct to bet on Green Bay paid off. 😔

Very disappointing as we have a Superbowl  D and  an inconsistent  and frustrating QB

The running game needs to improve, too. Worryingly Packers D looks very good and didn't miss Clay Matthews at all.

Why can't we have Bills, Jets and fucking Dolphins in our division 😕
