    Chicago Bears @ Indianapolis Colts. Awesome, rematch of SB XLI and the unveiling of Lucas Oil Field on primetime.

      Yeah I like division games myself on Thanksgiving.

      I hope we play the Titans and at least look respectable because I think Jacksonville will just destroy us. I'm sick of getting blown out like we have the last 4 Thanksgiving games.

      It probably will be the Titans because of Vince Young.

        I'm not a big fan of this. First I don't really like my team on Monday Night games to begin with. If it was up to me I'd have every Packer game on Sunday at noon. Secondly it's the first week of the season, which means even a longer wait for real football. And finally this means that Rodgers' first start will be in primetime, although that could be kind of interesting.

          The harder the schedule and the more primetime games, the better imo. Good preparation for the playoffs.

            Yay our rookie OT gets to play his first NFL game on primetime game against the Colts DEs. Awesome. I predict we'll be down to our third string QB by the second half.

              Tough game for Aaron Rodgers though in Week 1. The load theoretically should be all on Rodgers with the run D that the Vikings have. Luckily the Vikings secondary has some problems.
              Actually last year everyone expected us to pass when we played the Vikings and we ended up pounding the rock on the ground. We were one of the few teams to successfully run over the Vikings D. 2008 is a different year though.

              Thanks to BK for the sig

                  I'm a little suprised the Bears got the main primetime slot. Then again we're just the sacrificial lamb for the Colts. I'm glad we can get that game out of the way early though.


                  Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

                    Yeah 119 yards with a 30 yard td run is a very nice day running the ball for Grant. Favre did throw 46 passes as well in the 34-0 win with 3 tds and was extremely efficient. Running the ball like that will be crucial. It can be done obviously as you did it last year but won't be easy.

                    Losing Udeze might hurt that run defense some too. But with the Williams' in the middle, I never like that matchup for any team.

                      Never ever forget:

                      Don't kick to Hester.

                        Kick the ball into Lake Michigan. Thats Marinellis philosophy on special teams when playing the Bears.

                          We learned that the hard way. :(
                          The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''
