    Family night is on the 6th already.

    Wow, this is a short pre-season/camp.

    Kind of pleased with the free agency results so far. You knew that we were going to lose more than we kept, just by the nature of the salary cap and how many people we had to bring in to deal with injuries last year. The only one that we're losing that I'm really bummed about is Tauscher, but that's more for sentimental reasons than anything else. Bulaga is clearly ready to step in because... well... he's already done it.

    Definitely glad to see Jones and Kuhn back.

          I haven't paid much attention to the Packers this preseason because, well, it's the preseason. The season opens vs the Saints a week from yesterday. Here's a projected roster (http://host.madison.com/sports/footb...cc4c03286.html). I haven't seen enough of the games to comment on that, but it sounds good to me.
          Randy Schmidt should be / has been fired.

            Of interest: 5 TE's and the comment about possibly looking to trade James Jones (I think they want to keep Gurley).

              Turns out they did keep a bunch of TEs. Only surprise I saw was cutting Harrell.

                Yeah, unless they are able to keep Harrell on the practice squad I'm not sure what TT's plan is for next year if/when Flynn leaves. I'm not going to second guess TT, though.

                      Defense looking rather sieveish tonight.

                        Slightly less sieve-ish than the last time these teams met.

                        Baby steps.

                            Not a thing of beauty on the defensive side, although I didn't expect them to dominate against the Saints. At least they came up big in the red zone a few times.

                            What was most sieve-like was Collinsworth tonight. What was up with him? He had no idea what he was talking about regarding rules or penalties.

                              How about Al Michaels incredibly unexciting call of Cobb's TD return? I was expecting another "He did...WHAT?" a la the Freeman catch vs minny.
