    Pack get to rial up Brian Greise and start QB carrousel in chi-town

    Packers On MNF Twice, Open 2006 At Home vs. Chicago

    posted 04/06/2006

    The Packers' complete 2006 schedule won't be known until 1 p.m. CT Thursday. But, in anticipation of that, packers.com has learned some advance details.

    Now known is that the Packers will play a pair of prime-time road games, both on ESPN's 'Monday Night Football.' Green Bay travels to Philadelphia for a MNF contest in the season's first month, and later in the year plays at Seattle on a Monday night. Six of Green Bay's eight regular-season home games start at 12 noon CT, and there are 11 total "early" kickoffs over the course of the 16-game season.

    For the first time since 2003, Green Bay will open the season at home. Fittingly, in Mike McCarthy's first game as the team's head coach, the Packers square off with long-time rival Chicago. The Packers will have an immediate opportunity to see how they match up against the defending NFC North champions in a 3:15 p.m. game that will be part of the second half of a Fox Sports doubleheader.


    here is the rest of the schedule:

    Sep 10 Chicago 4:15pm
    Sep 17 New Orleans 1:00pm
    Sep 24 @Detroit 1:00pm
    Oct 2 @Philadelphia 8:30pm
    Oct 8 St. Louis 1:00pm
    Week 6 BYE
    Oct 22 @Miami 1:00pm
    Oct 29 Arizona 1:00pm
    Nov 5 @Buffalo 1:00pm
    Nov 12 @Minnesota 1:00pm
    Nov 19 New England 1:00pm
    Nov 27 @Seattle 8:30pm
    Dec 3 N.Y. Jets 1:00pm
    Dec 10 @San Francisco 4:05pm
    Dec 17 Detroit 1:00pm
    Dec 21 Minnesota 8:00pm
    Dec 31 @Chicago 1:00pm

    Re: Packers open against da BEARS

    Would be nice to start with off with a win against Chicago...

    1. It's the Bears

    2. It'd shut everyone up because most people are picking Green Bay to win 5 games at tops..

    Because we have 2 MNF games that tells me that the NFL either knows or expects Favre to come back. Sorry, without Favre I think we would not get a MNF game this year. ESPN definitely wants to cover Favre's last year.

    I heard that ESPN will also be doing a reality show regarding the Favre/Madden wedding ceremony and the events leading up to it. Sorry, I had to make the joke. Even though I love Favre, Madden is annoying (even though I think Madden is at NBC now, right?).

    Both MNF's are away games.

    Filthydelphia and Seattle.

    Bye week is week 6.

    The problem is that Dec 21st game I think is on NFL Network, which isn't free. Hopefully someone will tell me I am wrong!?!?!

    Are you a local Robin? Usually if the prime time games are on cable...a la espn, they will show it on a local channel for free. Not sure if that would be the same for NFL Network.

    Re: Packers open against da BEARS

    I agree, but at the same time...I think they wouldnt mind having a couple MNF with the packers with YEAR 1 of the No FAvre Leage.

    Everyone knows, the Packers without Favre can EASILLY be a car wreck....and everyone loves to watch a car wreck, everyone loves seeing the mighty fall from grace.

    lets hope they dont though, and if favre does retire, lets hope our QB situation isnt toooooo bad!

    No I am not. I am in Proctor, MN home of many many queens fans. Charter Cable does not have NFL Network. Hopefully because it is a queens game too, a local MN channel will also cover it. But I am not holding my breath. Plus, (on a personal note) I am really trying to stop drinking, so going to a bar to watch the game is not an option.

    Yes At least we can go on the bye week with one win against New Orleans, other than that I really wish we could beat Dabears, but I think we will be beaten by them, also by Philly and San Luis, we stand a chance to beat Detroit... But I will say by week 5 we will be 1-4.. Sorry I wish I am totally wrong..

    Dump Charter and get DirecTV. It's cheaper, has local channels and I get the NFLN.

    The NFL network in announcing the schedule in a 2 hour broadcast started with highlighting the national television games then spent time going over the Packer schedule, an interview with Ahman Green, and discussion of Brett Favre. Then went to the Pittsburgh Steelers and an interview with QB Ben. The 2 teams with the largest national following.

    They seem to know who is the large part of their national market.

    I dont think I get it on my cable system. They would have it on one of those specialty tiers on your cable system they would want you to whiz away money on. OMDB will I do that.

    You can go the NFL Network page and request that your cable company carry it. Thats what I did. Just go to the link that says Get NFL Network and follow the instructions, I wont explain them here.
