Preseason is underway. Lets hear your predictions and thoughts.

So far...

My Packers D still looks miserable. Special teams even worse.

Michael Vick injures his hand. (Shock of the century) No word yet on severity.

Foles is the future -- with an OLine, that kid is going to be legit.

If it wasn't for King Dunlap's dumbass, we would've had another TD with ease... Dude easily conducted 3 touchdown worthy drives after just being thrown into a game with a garbage offensive line and Avant out of the game.

He should have never left. Doug Flutie admitted after the Music City Miracle (If you all remember, Rob Johnson surprisingly started over Doug Flutie for that game), Wade Phillips came to Doug after the game and told him it wasn't him that made the call to bench him. It was Ralph Wilson Jr. (the owner) that forced Wade to bench him. The next year, I think we went 8-8 and he was fired after a 7-4 start.

Anyways, this is a pretty sloppy game. Cutler is getting no help with all these dropped passes.

Starting to get painful to watch...neither team can get anything going and we aren't getting turnovers every 5 minutes like in the first half. The Bears are screwed if Campbell isn't able to lead a drive. Their offensive coordinator is pretty much ensuring as much.

LOL Fair enough. I'm mainly a big Farley fan.

However, until Favre retires at Lambeau, he is a Viking.

Foles isn't going to do anything without an offensive line...he had them driving into the redzone and his garbage offensive line pushed them back to 1st & 25...

I hope they lose out, so they can get started on shipping Reid's dumbass out of Philly, cutting Vick, and drafting either an OL or a LB.

Rob Ryan thinks he's going to be a stud...which is odd since he's the DC for the Cowboys.

Regardless, I don't expect him to accomplish anything this year other than gain experience for next year.

Unlike Kolb, Foles can throw the ball further than 35 yards with solid velocity. Just check out YouTube...his college highlights will give you a better idea of his arm strength.

They'd be 7-7 with Carolina if Newton didn't go Culpepper at the end of the game. They are easily the worst 8-1 team I've ever seen.
