No surprise that the world champion (never get tired of saying that (image removed) ) Packers are getting a lot of national attention:
* Thursday nighter at Lambeau vs. the Saints to open up the year Sept. 8 * Sunday night return to the Georgia Dome Oct. 9 * Oct. 23 at the Vikes'll likely be a nat'l game * MNF returns to Lambeau w/ the damn Vikes Nov. 14 * The Turkey Day tradition that Lombardi hated lives on! Back to Ford Field Nov. 24 * Back to the new digs in Jersey (this time to play the Giants) Dec. 4'll likely be another nat'l game * Da Bears come to Lambeau Xmas night on NBC

Putting Bears @ Packers on Christmas is really putting a crimp in my plans to finally make a pilgrimage to Lambeau (my brother is a Bears fan). I was counting on it being the opening game (although I recognized that the Saints were the other possibility).

I'm glad to see the NFL show my Bucs some respect finally (with two primetime home games, against Indy on MNF and Dallas on NFL Network), but man, some of their choices stunk from a personal perspective. I was all set to make a trip to Nashville for the game against the Titans, and they stuck the game on Thanksgiving weekend (meaning it's pretty much an automatic no-go). I also said I'd make Green Bay happen as long as it was before Thanksgiving, but I wasn't expecting it to be the WEEK BEFORE Thanksgiving, brrr. (Still probably going to go, though, along with Minnesota in September and the home games against N'awlins and Dallas.)

I would assume the NFL thinks they're going to be a contender, and since they were in the thick of the playoffs all last year, that's not too far-fetched of an idea. And also, they got all their home games on TV last year, so I don't think they're a candidate for LA at this point.
EDIT: But since you're Titan fan, I assume you know all that because they're division rivals.
