    "It's certainly challenging," said Philbin. "But the young players that we have, they're eager, they're the kind of players that we can mold, they listen real well. It's been fun to be with them and it appears daunting at times too, yeah, a little bit of everything.

    "If you love what you're doing and who you're doing it with, when you have a passion for your players to perform, I certainly have a sense of urgency to get that done. I have a lot of confidence in the character of these men that we will get better, we will improve and that we'll have a fine offensive line. I really believe that."

    I hope the boys are ready to play Sunday!

    This game will be a true test. If they can get past this Bears defense, then I will be pretty confident they can handle the rest of the season.

    It's definitely a barometer for the rest of the season. Like Schmitty said, if this Packer line can perform well against the Bears, they should be able to be fairly productive this season against anyone else.

    they did decent enough vs the falcons very good line, in week 2, the game McCarthy said was his dress rehearsal.

    lets hope the results are the same.

    This game will not be that much of a true test. It's the first game of the season and if you remember correctly, last season it took the Bears defense about 4 games to really gel and go on a tear. Thay gave up too many big plays against the Bengals and Browns in weeks 3 and 4. On the bright side you guys have a better shot at contending in this game than say if they played the Bears defense in mid-season form. :D

    As long as they don't look hopeless the first then I'll be optimistic cause I see them getting better every game. If they don't, I feel that's the coaches fault.

    I just hope they are able to keep these guys together throughout the year so they can learn, grow and gel as a unit.
    No injuries please.

    well Spitz looks like hes not going anywhere, with his playing multiple spots well for a rookie. whereas Colledge is a disappointment. people forget they're rookies, and that they should be pro-bowlers. silly folks.
