Guys, how much noise can 6000 fans make in Lambeau? Do you think that may be enough to break the opponent’s offense? Regardless, I hope this is enough to bring extra energy to the team.
I know how it feels in Lambeau Field without fans for the last four months. I think 6,000 will sound like 60,000 compared to that, especially after a big play.

Since UDFA seems to be one of the latest topics of discussion, who do Spoff and Wes think are the best 1
I’m not going to lie … I’m ready for the weekend, Jeff, so we’re going to limit this to my full-time Packers (since 2012): Tramon Williams, Ryan Grant, Sam Shields, John Kuhn, Lane Taylor, Robert Tonyan, Alan Lazard, Evan Smith, Jarrett Bush and Barnes.
With Krys Barnes, who is not a rookie, is he on a one-year contract? Is there a risk that he will be a free agent at the end of the season?
The incompetent recruits remain under the control of the team with which they have signed for three years. UDFA can only sign with a team of his choice if he A) is released and cleared the waiver, B) signs an offer list as a limited free agent after three seasons in the NFL or C) becomes a veteran (4 years accumulated).
Dominic Daphne was asked if he would boast more about rushing for 255 yards in college, catching his first break or practicing the return kick minutes after. He chose the big hit to prove he was tough! Our kind of player! I hope there are another 50 big hits and another 30 touchdowns!
Daphne doesn’t just pack a punch – he enjoys a punch pack. This mentality can keep an unprepared free agent in the league for a long, long time.

In Daphne, we have another QB who switched to TE as a pro. Are there enough cases now to mark this as a trend? Find an athletic QB that is not good enough to be a professional QB, and pass it with the help of your training team?
I want to clarify something on this issue – Daphne was not a quarterback. He was a receiver who intervened as a wild cat QB due to injuries in the last month of his final year in Indiana. With that in mind, Green Bay has done a fantastic job of finding players who may have been misled or under-recruited at the college level, and developing them.
The whole interview you all posted with Dominic Daphne made me smile. A young man with an upright head and a true love of football. How did your questions and answers answer you?
It was one of the funniest calls for a raise we’ve had all season. I know I’m in a lot of trouble promoting outsider stories, but one of the reasons I’m most happy is that you’re dealing with ordinary people who accomplish a lot of extraordinary things. As Rodgers said earlier this week, that’s the beauty of this game.
Now that the regular season is over, what effect have the pre-season games not had on the Packers? Except maybe the defense, I don’t see a negative impact.
*This reinforces why Rodgers and established veterans probably shouldn’t play in the preseason. At the same time, I think it would be very helpful for Tim Boyle, Jordan Love and all the young players in the bubble to get this job. *

Good morning! I think we should all hope Washington wins against Tampa Bay. That’s how we play (the worst record) and New Orleans and Seattle have to take it out, provided the Bears and Aries lose. What do you think?
Hi Wes! I am a longtime reader who goes back to the days of Ask Vic and I love how you and Mike continue the Inbox! I read it almost every day. The other main media related to Packers that I follow is Tom Grossi’s YouTube channel. It was great to see two of my favorites come together. That made my day! How long have you known about Tom and have you watched his family videos from NFC / AFC East? They are pure gold. I hope you find his hat and see you and Tom soon to do another podcast!
I had an absolute blast making Tom’s Packast. It was one of my favorite interviews I’ve ever done. I guess I know about his videos from the last two years. He has such an infectious personality that he makes the show a lot of fun. Now I just have to find it with this hat.
