    Defense ready to show what it can do

    Jim Bates is excited, Nick Barnett is nervous and fans are apprehensive.

    Ready or not, the Green Bay Packers

    I don't remember a unit being as scrutinized as this year's Packers D. Yes, most of it is deserved BUT...I really hope they come out this season with guns blazing. Wouldn't it be a great story if the Packers defense was a top 15 or so D? I think you'd see a team with some serious playoff hope then...

    Like the tag line, ND. Has the jerk signed anywhere?

    digs,

    Heard the Bengals were interested in giving him a workout but haven't heard anything beyond that. I'm just glad he's someone else's problem now!

    I think its neat that none of us (not me, or you) have seen the new packer defense. WE've seen the players, and the base defense, but we've seen about 20% at the most of what is to come. That is neat..and exciting..

    Trom, to add to your point, we also haven't seen all the projected starters on the field at one time. And you have to admit, that even with backups playing, the D is better then last year. By no means will this be mistaken with the Ravens D, but the fact is that once we get our starting 11 out onto the field all at the same time, this D will be young, fast, and HUNGRY. That could lead to a deadly combo. :)

    Personally, I think our defense will rank somewhere around 16th by the end of the season. Mark my words.

    It's too bad that Diggs is out for the opener. But if he has to miss a game or two I guess our first two are as good as any and better than most others. It will be good to get him back.
