Even though I am not subscribed to ESPN the Magazine, I have still been receiving issues in my mailbox for the past year. This is not a problem I am likely to look into however, especially now that Aaron Rodgers will be gracing the cover of their next issue. The Packers quarterback will be featured on the Mag's NFL Fantasy Special edition, which is just another sign that people all over the country are falling in love with this kid.
Actually, people all over the country have been falling in love with the Packers, as more and more predictions are placing them not only in the Super Bowl but also to win it. You're always a little hesitant when you come into the season as one of the favorites to win the whole prize, but this team is deserving of all the praise. They are only just two years removed from the NFC Championship Game, and they very well could have gotten back there last year had they showed up for the first half of their playoff game against Arizona. This will be a team to be reckoned with, and the national media isn't oblivious to that fact. Elsewhere in quick Packers news:
* The Packers website has undergone a complete overhaul, and for the better. Worth checking out.
* Coming soon to Lambeau, a Big Ten title game?
* The Packers have picked a date to wear their throwbacks, it's December 5th against the Niners.
