SparkPeople Lambeau Field HQ for Packer Fans Team Messageboard Packer fans live all over the world. When we move, we take our allegiance to the Pack with us. What's YOUR story? SparkPeople Lambeau Field HQ for Packer Fans Team Messageboard 2018-2019 Season I hated that we tied against the Vikings on Sunday, but at least Aaron Rodgers was okay - he didn't get his collarbone broken this time. I'll take it if it's between a tie and his health, but obviously, I would've liked both a win and his safety. <em>30</em> Tue, 18 Sep 2018 15:00:24 EST NFL Live's 2-day homage to the Packers Did anyone watch "NFL Live" on Thurs, July 26th and Fri, July 27th when they filmed live from Green Bay on the first days of training camp to celebrate the team's 100th season? I have them on my DVR, waiting for time to pay attention instead of watching while I do other things. Mon, 30 Jul 2018 07:40:30 EST 2015-2016 Season It'll be nice to have Jordy Nelson back next season, but the half-full way of thinking has me seeing that other receivers are getting their time to shine.

I am slowly getting back into the flow of things and need to step it up! Wed, 27 Mar 2013 12:54:09 EST Is this team dead! Where have all the Packer fans gone? I love this site and no one is posting here anymore. Your beloved Packers are in the play-offs and no one is commenting. Lets get some Packer pride going and help the Pack beat the Viqueens tomorrow night! Fri, 4 Jan 2013 06:14:27 EST Thanksgiving Day Game Why did I think the Pack played the Loser-ish Lions every Turkey Day? I was so excited to watch the game on Thursday. oops. It was today. Well, I am glad we won one way or the other. <BR> <BR> Talking about Turkey Day, I hope you have a GREAT ONE everyone. Take care. Sun, 18 Nov 2012 19:18:27 EST Can we Name Packers Players A-Z?

He actually got me watching football and brought me into being a Packers fan. My daughter is a Packers fan also, but much to our shame, DH and my son is a Vikings fan. We hope that in time he will see the error of his ways as he is only 11yr old, lol. <BR> <BR> I have about 150lbs total to lose so I will be around for a long time. I am having some issues with... Wed, 17 Oct 2012 08:42:38 EST Where is everyone? Does anyone still participate? Is this a dead team? I see a notice that our team leader has not posted in 60 day! Thought with football season upon us this would be an active team!!! I see one person who huddles and that it it. Sun, 14 Oct 2012 14:15:22 EST Game day snacks Hi all, <BR> <BR> I am trying to plan my game day snacks for this weekend and I am rather uninspired. Any thought or what is your go to snack for games? Family is having smoked sausages, soft pretzels, wings, nachos, and pizza. I can do the soft pretzel with no problems but not sure what else is a good idea. Nachos are a definate no no for me because I won't stop eating them. Fri, 12 Oct 2012 10:11:59 EST Where are my teammates at?

We know Packer Backers are HOT! <BR> <BR> At the same time, some of us can be too COOL for our own damn good. I am one of them. I thought doing things by myself was a good option, big for my britches. I haven't been around. Sorry. I drug my sorry butt back and have been tracking and walking at least 10,000 steps daily for a month, getting back into shape. <BR> <BR> In this heat, there are many opportunities to PLAY and F...

Anyone want to join me :) Sat, 30 Jun 2012 18:35:05 EST 500 minutes per week! :) I saw this on another person's post! I was just wondering what everyone thought about this?

I had a rough week with my son, but now am ready to rock it! Bring it on! :) How many minutes is everyone at so far?

Donald is up against some good competition on the TV dance show, "Dancing With the Stars". <BR> Donald is <BR> <em>345</em> <BR> <BR> He needs our votes to stay on the show until the finals. Wed, 21 Mar 2012 15:20:51 EST What happened Sunday? Three days after the biggest collapse of the season for our Packers. What is your take on the cause of the collapse? I am sure that most of us are in shock as to what happened. The offense did not show up. The Defense was playing well but towards the end looked liek they got tired. <BR> <BR> 15 - 2 for the season is still a great record and as Packer fans we still love our team, why because we are Packer fans. America's real team! Wed, 18 Jan 2012 07:01:22 EST 2011 Score Prediction Winner The Packers season has full of surprises, thrills and a few disappointments. Thankfully only a few. And it's NOT OVER YET. <BR> <BR> Ours, however, is over. I'd like to thank everyone who participated in our score prediction game. I hope you've had fun and I'd like to do it again next year. If you have any ideas on how to make the game even better, I'd love to hear it. Just drop me a message. <BR> <BR> Now, I'm sure you're wondering who took the grand prize. So, without making you wait any ... Wed, 11 Jan 2012 12:44:07 EST Next Weeks Opponent Depending on how this weekends games turn out, we will have either the Lions, Giants or Atlanta. Of these three (all tough match-ups) I feel we match up best against Detroit. I think it would be difficult for us against Atlanta or New York seeing as they both have a big strong back which seems to be a huge weakness (among others on D) for us in stopping the run. With weather in Wisconsin it may come down to running the ball. I know we have beaten all these teams but I guess if I had a choice,... Sat, 7 Jan 2012 20:17:37 EST NJ Cheesehead! I am a relatively new Packers fan, although I cannot complain about when I became a cheesehead....last year (before the Superbowl win) My partner and many of my friends are cheeseheads (strangely since we all live in NJ) and we went on a trip to Lambeau last October. Well, it was all over for me since then. I haven't missed a single play since then. I was a cheerleader in HS and knew nothing about football. Now I know more than I ever thought and although I wish the season was a little s... Tue, 3 Jan 2012 07:48:10 EST Happy New Year!!!!!! Just a short note to wish all my fellow PACKER FANS a very HAPPY NEW YEAR !!! <BR> GO PACK GO !!!! Fri, 30 Dec 2011 14:40:12 EST Week 15 score predictions Here we go. The final week of the season against the Detroit Lambs. <BR> <BR> This week is going to present some unique challenges for you as prognosticators. Not only is this a division game. It's a game against a playoff team that the Packers might meet in January. Do you show your cards or not? Do you rest your top players and beat the Lambs by only a few points or let them play to make a statement and ride into the playoffs sky-high with a multi-TD margin of victory? <BR> <BR> Lot's to ... Tue, 27 Dec 2011 12:23:18 EST Week 15 score predictions I expect an angry bunch of Packers to really lay the wood to the Cubs this week. So, my prediction is a Packers win 35-10.

I've been a Packer fan by marriage since 2001, but my husband and I live deep in Bears territory. For this Sunday's game, we'll have to go to a sports bar, since it won't be broadcast locally (conflict with Da Bears). <BR> <BR> Anyone else in the same boat? We'll probably go to our local Buffalo Wild Wings Chain, since it's the easiest place to go with two small kids (1 and 4 years old). Anyone else have a "Packer Bar" they go to in hostile territory? Fri, 16 Dec 2011 16:27:31 EST Week 14 score predictions Time to let everyone in Kansas City know who the big chief is. <BR> <BR> Packers win big again: 42-10 Thu, 15 Dec 2011 16:40:15 EST Greg Jennings What are your thoughts on Jennings being out 2 - 3 weeks? <BR> <BR> Deep at the receiver positions, it will have an impact but should not be devastating. Better being out now and healthy for the post season. <BR> <BR> Give us your thoughts. <BR> <BR> <BR> Joe Tue, 13 Dec 2011 07:14:08 EST Anybody by Packer Stock?

Wed, 2 Nov 2011 12:58:57 EST Please sign Years ago, in 2005 to be exact, I created an online petition because I was tired of seeing Jerry Kramer passed over for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Jerry had such a great career and is a model football player and gentleman. I felt I wanted to do _something_ but didn't know what. So, I created an online petition hoping that some people would sign. Maybe one day it would come to the attention of the "right" people. <BR> <BR> Signatures were very slow at first.

I won a biggest loser contest 18 mo ago and since have slowly gained back what I lost. 45 this year and I want to be a winner, a better role model for my kids and a much healthier me for me. My wife and are are a team and I think we will have success like our beloved Pack did this past season. Sat, 5 Mar 2011 11:59:14 EST Number one need this offseason We all know we have a great team, but even great teams can be strengthened. What would you say is the single most important thing for the Packers this offseason? <BR> <BR> Is it signing (or keeping) a key player? <BR> <BR> Is it strengthening a certain position? <BR> <BR> What do you think? Mon, 21 Feb 2011 10:47:30 EST How are you going to spend the offseason So, how are you going to spend the offseason? <BR> <BR> As for me, I'm going to concentrate on ignoring the Chicago Bears fans who are still, to this day, flooding the message boards with complaints about how the Packers got lucky, that they aren't really very good, etc... <BR> <BR> I'm going to let that drivel float by and smile.

In it, he fondly recalled a game in 1980 where he had his Bears' defense blitzing on every play, even with a 61-7 lead. <BR> <BR> So, in honor of that memory, my prediction for this game is just a small payback for the 1980 game. <BR> <BR> I'm going with a 67-3 Packers win. Wed, 19 Jan 2011 16:24:51 EST GAME: Trivia for week of Jan. 16, 2011 It's been a while since I've done this, but I ran across this little gem today and couldn't help sharing it. <BR> <BR> I am the first black quarterback in Packers history.

So, here it is. <BR> <BR> I haven't known what would work the best for the most of us. Some thrive on weekly weigh-ins, to LOSE weight. Some like the camaraderie of a challenge to help them MAINTAIN or STOP GAINING. Others like to compare notes with team mates who are also KICKING BAD HABITS to the curb by replacing them with healthier new ones. <BR> <BR> SparkPeople has shown us that "going it alone" is the hard way to she...

I have read too many Favre Hater posts on sports sites from Packer fans that want to see him carried off the field. Those aren't even sports fans. They are the type that go to NASCAR to see the crashes. <BR> I didn't want to see him in purple, even more so I don't want to see him permanently hurt because of his desire to continue playing the game he loves so much. <BR> <BR> I'll be praying for you #4!!

Hi, Packer Fans! <BR> <BR> A friend filled me in on some of the things I've missed by never seeing the Packers play at Lambeau, in person. It sounds like an unforgettable experience. Tonight, SEDASMOM posted a new team thread, "Going To The Game On Saturday?" She seems pretty pumped about it. As pre-season begins, other fans are also making their plans to see a home game. Some of you may be regular season ticket holders who tailgate. <BR> <BR> As excitement about the season builds, ... Fri, 14 Aug 2009 00:37:32 EST Going to the game on Saturday!

What a beautiful day (weather and football). Nitschke field is awesome!! The boys are looking pretty good this year. Jennings dropped any easy pass and said he should have taken his pads off immediately and apologized to every fan in person. Gonna be a great season.

These days, everywhere we look there are studies identifying yet another benefit of exercise. It's not fiction. Exercise literally saves lives. Given the agreement on benefits, you'd think everyone would be exercising. They aren't, though. I use to hate it with a passion and wouldn't do it. I've changed my mind because I found exercise I like to do. <BR> <BR> How about YOU? Do you love it, hate it, or make excuses to avoid it? Would you EXERCISE if you didn't have to...?

I unfortunately had a wedding and a few other parties this week and shot up to 277... However, I went to the doctor and had high-ish blood pressure so I am motivated now. <BR> <BR> SW: 273.6 <BR> WK1: 277.0 Sun, 21 Sep 2008 14:12:04 EST Looks like I lost my workout buddy for awhile! Chris went and sprained his ankle pretty badly at work yesterday. So I have sadly losst my workout buddy for a time! He isn't very happy about it either, he said that was the first thing he thought of... Not being able to do any cardio! <BR> BUT at least it isn't broken like they first thought it was. <BR> Sat, 20 Sep 2008 14:16:12 EST CHICAGO PACKER BACKER!

As well as my tendency to bring my own snacks to game days -- faux 'chik'n' wings to dip in hot sauce, celery, and low fat tortillas with salsa. Yesss, I'll imbibe the occasional ML, but seriously, football food is the biggest diet pitfall! So this team seemed totally appropriate on a nutritional quest. And, well,.. the Packs just rock. Nuff said. Glad to be here! <em>9</em> Sun, 14 Sep 2008 20:18:21 EST FACE-OFF CONTEST: IT'S ON The basis of FACE/OFF is for folks to challenge each other on certain weight loss or weight maintainment categories like: <BR> <BR> - I can lose more weight in a week <BR> - I can lose more percentage than you. <BR> - I can eat more veggies <BR> - I can do more this or that better than you. <BR> <BR> You get the picture. <BR> <BR> This contest will start off as folks signing up for a basic weight loss/maintainment competition.

Sat, 13 Sep 2008 14:44:39 EST Packer Fans I am so excited that football season has begun. I have been in a Packer fan club for over 11 years now. You wanna talk about a great group of people.

I am just so excited for Sunday to see all my lovely friends and watch the best football team ever. <BR> <BR> Anyone else get all excited to see their "football" friends? <BR> Wed, 10 Sep 2008 19:22:36 EST The Monday night game.... Packer Backers---How is Aaron Rodgers gonna do tonight? I am sure he will do fine, he had a fabulous teacher. Just hope he doesn't get hurt like Brady did. The Pack will be a hurting unit if he goes down. <BR> <BR> Let's go Pack!! GB 28, MN 17(like I can guess scores) <BR> <BR> Favre was awesome as always today!! <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <em>124</em> Mon, 8 Sep 2008 05:50:17 EST September goals/chal enges--HOW LOW CAN YOU GO?!

I grew up in KC Chiefs country, but never felt like they were MY team. Then in the 5th grade, I saw Brett Favre on ESPN and fell in love. I've been a Packers fan from that day on and I have an entire wall of my old bedroom dedicated Brett and the team. <BR> <BR> My goal for this site is to get the moral support I need to stick to my goals.

I thought I would add my two-cents on the team vs. individual debate. I know I haven't said much out here, but I have been trying to follow along. My teammates tend to be pretty quiet, too. However, I do find some motivation from the team challenge - it adds accountability for me.

Sun, 13 Jul 2008 13:00:21 EST Maybe a Packer No More......... I just heard a news report that Brett has officially asked to be released from his contract. The report says it's because he wants to play and the Packers don't want him so he is looking to play elsewhere. Now maybe I'm a little behind the rest of you because this is the first I've heard of it. And I'm very angry. If he does indeed play for a different team this year- I'm with Brett.
