I’m a Brit coming to Chicago for the first time. My girlfriend got me tickets for my 30th knowing I’m a big Packer’s fan. I see that the NFL are putting on something at Grant Park but I was just wondering what plans people had for pre and post game that would be Packer fan friendly, would love to get involved in some tailgating. Thanks, Jamie
You might be better off asking in a Bear forum. Not too many of us are familiar with the Chicago area. That said, I'd expect to here a lot of shit talking if you wear Packer gear. There will be drunks and they will talk a lot of shit trying to instigate something.
Generally speaking the best Packer Bar in the area is Will's Northwoods Inn, however, it's about 10 miles from Solider Field. Which means it could be a 5.3 hour drive depending on the time of the day. I'm exaggerating only a little. It's at least an 30 minute drive most times of the day. A Thursday night? Ugh... Given you're coming in from out of town, I'm assuming you're looking to crash an existing tailgate vs your own? Parking lots open 4 hours before game time so plenty of time to walk...
I remember a poster on JSOnline packer forum recommended X4 as a forum to go to instead of the JS one. This was around 2000-2001 time frame. That's how I discovered X4. Only poster I can recall was SteelFloor. He had so many crazy photo shopped pictures and GIF's.
I have no answers to your questions as I won't be at the game. Wanted to say congrats on getting those tickets! You must have a wonderful girlfriend. Hope you have a great time no matter what you end up doing.
PANIC TIME!!!!!!! I can't get Larry and Wayne on the radio here in Eau Claire! The station that normally carries them has the Westwood 1 broadcast. I always listen to Larry and Wayne standing outside watching the game on TV through the picture window. Anyone know how I can get the Packer radio broadcast in Eau Claire?
He could run indeed. He was a starting caliber NFL corner. He was paid like one. He wasn't a great player and he wasn't the difference in the Packers record and home field. I watched Julio Jones light up the Packers secondary for 259 yards in 2014 when Shields was there. Lack of talent and constant mental errors, not injuries, is what ails the Packers CB's.
Why would you give up watching a team if there's a coach you don't like. That's childish. Be a fan or don't, fair weather fan sh*t is garbage. I support whoever is part of the organization, period. I'm a Packer fan, not some loser bandwagon fan.
I'll defend my team always. I don't act like a baby when they aren't perfect. Criticizing isn't acting like a baby, hoping your opponent beats "your" team by more points is garbage. Take that to the Packer equivalent of rubechat.
Of course, who would want to keep a GM that has a record of 119-74 and has made the playoffs the last 8 years. This game right now is on Rodgers throwing a horrifically bad pick 6 and the fact they are generating no pass rush. Rodgers has won a few games in his career. Eventually, the odds were going to be that he'd make a game turning mistake before his career was over. Now with Martinez - he clearly sucks.
I'm sure that's a great comfort to Tom Coughlin and what Eli Manning is going through right now. 2 Super Bowl wins and......Well. That was my point. Commentators who point out that the Packers are "settling" with Rodgers at QB make me angry. But they might have a point. Professional sports are cruelly bottom line most places. But the Packers don't have an owner,
