The Packer's have not hid their "lack of enthusiasm" about playing a 5th preseason game, I don't think they will be all that disappointed if it can't be played.

Uh oh. Looks like there is concern with the field. Seems to be concern on both sides. Link Titm posted talked about this being a borrowed field from the Superdome. From article: " However, the Field Turf surface has been replaced as part of the stadium’s $80 million renovation with a surface known as UBU turf that was removed from the Superdome after the 2016 Sugar Bowl. A new permanent surface will be installed in Phase Two of the renovation, which begins shortly after the Packers and Colts...

ChilliJon posted: Tom Silverstein: Got to think GM Ted Thompson won’t let his team play on this surface unless he’s positive it’s safe. Not sure who makes that call that it is. How does the NFL keep putting teams in a position they have to figure out if a field is safe to play on? But by Oldschool's logic, if TT hates the turf he must really love the turf so he has no excuse for not allowing his team to play.

Let me get this straight: The NFL is a "cabillion" dollar corporation that ponies up a "cabillion" dollars to have teams play in foreign countries, but can't throw the Hall of Fame a bone and put in a state of the art field? The best possible field should always be in place each year for this game. Shameful. EmbarrASSing. Cheap. No way they should play the game if the field isn't NFL ready.

And if they do put a team out there tonight, who do they allow to play on that field? Do they have enough players to avoid playing any starters?

@rtv6 UPDATE on field conditions in Canton - they'll go through pre-game, but game may become glorified practice because of field issues @mikespofford Fans now being let into stadium, but both teams have gone back to locker rooms. We've had no updates in the press box to this point. @AdamSchefter The paint that was applied today on middle of field, and in endzones, has congealed; would be like playing on tar.

I'm back home up nort and fighting with the crappy wifi, but have to say this is one of the biggest cluster****s ever. Silver lining is that we probably don't have to listen to Gruden slurping Brent during the traditional in-game interview they do with the new HoFamers. Although since ESPN now has three hours of dead air to fill I wouldn't be surprised if they pay Brent to give us 3 hours of homespun piety and bull****.

Positives: -Janis had no miscommunications with the QB. He's turned the corner on route running. Possible pro bowler this year. -No low character plays for Adams. He's back on track. Likely pro bowler this year. Negatives: -Offense put up 0 points. Poor play calling by MM. Time to go back to Clements? -Jordy held to 0 zero catches. Clearly not back from ACL. IR? -Lacy averaged 0.0 yards per carry. Weight still an issue. First cut?
