Packers Drop the Preseason Finale

Alright, so maybe my preseason boner has subsided, but that's okay. After the display the Packers put on for the first three weeks of the season, I could not be more excited for the real games to get underway. Thursday night's game against the Titans was just a formality, as the Pack lost 27-10. Oh well, it's only preseason, as I've been saying all along (actually, no, I haven't, I have been loving this preseason!)

There were a couple of injuries, including B.J. Raji who got roughed up a bit, but it appears to just be a sprained ankle. Other than that, this was the Brian Brohm show today, as our apparent third-string quarterback played pretty much the whole game. Brohm did alright, going 20 for 28 in the air with 154 yards, but his 5.5 yards per throw is one of the lowest totals I have seen in a long time.

Kregg Lumpkin made a say for a roster spot with a touchdown in the fourth quarter, but that was pretty much the only highlight. Well, besides the discovery that Patrick Ramsey is the third string quarterback for the Titans. Who knew?

So now we'll just have to wait and see as to who gets cut, and it should be interesting, especially in the backfield and in the linebacking core. I'll have my thoughts on the cuts on Monday, as Labor Day is the first holiday I've had off in awhile, so I'm going to take full advantage of the weekend. What a minute, does that mean three straight days without Bucky Channel updates? Well, it does, but after this week, I'm sure we're all used to it. Ha! But regular programming will resume next week. Happy Labor Day.
