Well the Packers second preseason game against the Rams is almost here and Packernation looks forward to watching their team play a dry¬†game this time. The Rams will be a serious test for the Pack when starters meet starters. This is a team that has not made the playoffs since 2004, right about the time the balance of power shifted to the Seahawks. Now with the 49'ers also recently winning in the playoffs, the Rams have all but drifted into the Mississippi and floated away into the gulf of Mexico to NFL fans. But this is a good team with…

Well, even though it is not the regular season, the offseason ends today. Packernation will be once again able to see their team collide with an opponent for the first time since the end of last season. In a year in which even Family Night did not have a scrimmage, Packers fans should be pretty pumped.

The defenses will be pretty…

Yes…Preseason Games Are Important

So the preseason is here and every year the same derision slices through Packernation as people take sides on whether or not the games are important. Let me make it clear...THEY ARE! Are the points important?...no. Are wins and losses important?...no. Do we play too many preseason games?...perhaps. But live action contact football against another NFL team is CRITICAL to the progress of each NFL team in each NFL year. Here's why? (more…)
