My first game at Lambeau Field this year was an eye opener, gone is the field or stadium I once played in! I guess in today's game it's all about making money and I understand that, but now as I look at Lambeau somehow it doesn't feel the same. In old Lambeau you could still feel the presence of Bart Starr, Johnny Blood, and Tony Canadeo. You could still feel their presence even in the stadium that Reggie White, and LeRoy Butler played in. Don't get me wrong new Lambeau is beautiful ,they could've screwed it up like Soldier Field. This will take some getting use to but I'm sure most people are happy because the waiting list just got a little shorter. Lambeau Field the third largest stadium in the NFL, is in the smallest city in the NFL-pretty impressive!!
The Green Bay Packers just suffered their first significant injury of the season. Left tackle Bryan Bulaga is lost for the season with a ACL injury. So now the big question is what should the Packers do? I think they should put Robert Newhouse back at left tackle, and Don Barclay starts at right tackle. Rookie David Bakhtiari can be your swing tackle at right and left. First round pick Derrick Sherrod is a wild card player here hopefully he can play this year, if he does this will give the packers much needed depth on the offensive line.
Most people think that Green Bay is too small to host a Super Bowl. Well I agree with that, but it would have to include Milwaukee and The Fox Valley to get it done. It can happen if all the different cities are involved to make it a BIG event. We could host parties in Milwaukee, Appleton and Green Bay. I think it could be a great experience. We should not hide that fact that the event will be spread out. It would be great for the economy in all of these cities. I’m sure the Kohler’s would love to host an event at their place, The Pfister Hotel could host an event one night, The Blue Harbor would be another option. We have great places here we just have to make it happen Johnny V at Mo’s.
I heard the airport is too small. Sure it’s in Green Bay but people could fly into General Mitchell or even Austin Straubel. I saw a lot of private jets fly into Green Bay when we played the Giants. Teams need to practice? They could use the Don Hutson to practice indoors. There are several other indoor facilities that teams could use as well.
People it can happen we can't just be the typical narrow minded people that we always have been. We have the best stadium in the NFL. The NFL was born here. The Lombardi Trophy is named after our guy. You build it they will come in droves trust me. Just think about this, Minnesota WILL host the Super Bowl when they build their new stadium and trust me it will be spread out between Minneapolis and St Paul. Just saying!
