So I get to wake all of you up on this fine Saturday morning. My first decision in all of this was to let you sleep in....because you know it's Saturday. Well, that and yesterday was a busy day in the NFL with lots of news coming at all of us at once. Today we change gears and really jump into regular season mode. That means actual scheming and game planning by the Packers and more analysis of guys like Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews rather than someone like Vic So'oto. For now we'll startwith some links and news.

Packers QB B.J. Coleman and Operation Conceal Coleman | AllGreenBayPackers.com
I think the Packers like Coleman, but I don't think they play these sorts of games as much as fans think they do. Coleman looks like he has potential, but it's not like he's ready for the NFL yet either.
