    I'll bet McCarthy likes this because it gives them a couple more days of training camp. We haven't talked about this much (that I remember anyway) but the new CBA really restricts the amount of off season work McCarthy likes to do. Too bad IMO because while I understand the NFLPA not wanting its members to get beat up in the off season more than necessary, why not just put in restrictions for work in pads or even shells, and let the teams work with players more in non-contact stuff? It can really make a difference for rookies.

    I'm REALLY hoping I can go, but that night is also my fiancee's birthday, and while she'll cheer for the Packers, she is neither a Packers fan, nor a Chargers fan, so it wouldn't really be her ideal night out.

    Yeah, tackling is what really takes a hit with the loss of all the contact and padded practices which makes me think that preseason may take on a little different look than it has in the past. ARod and the starting O may not be on the field long for the first games but I wonder if first team D spends more time than in the past on the field. Going to be interesting to see how the second year guys do with a full offseason. I am salivating.

    That is the idea. :) Nothing official yet, still waiting for the schedule. Game might end up being on a Thursday, which would suck. But I doubt the NFL schedule this game on a Thursday and schedules it for a Saturday.

    not yet but why not. I am not going to do the spread I did last time. My wife would divorce me. but we could all get together, bbq, put back some brew and party. I will make the packer punch again. Sound good?
