Packers preseason schedule
« on: April 09, 2019, 09:27:33 AM »
This is the week each year that the Packers release their preseason schedule. I know this will probably produce a giant yawn, but is their any teams you would like to see the Packers play this year? At home or on the road? For me living in Lexington, Kentucky it is an hour trip up the freeway to Cincinnati and a cheap game to take in. Any others? Maybe a game against the Cardinals at home to get the tank game taste out of their mouths? Or Cowboys and Randall Cobb back in town? Watt and the Texans would be a first, the Packers have never played the Texans in the preseason.

I always like the preseason KC, Seattle, and NO away games.  It gives the younger players a chance to experience some serious crowd noise.   Going into potential playoff teams homes  (Sea and NO)  and getting used to it can be beneficial IMO.

I live about 20 minutes from US Bank Stadium in Minny, but you'll never see the Packers/Vikings play a preseason game against each other. Doesn't happen in division play.

I'd kind of like to see Kyle Shanahan bring his 49'ers to Green Bay so the "student" (MLF) get's to lock horns with the "mentor" (Shanahan).

#Packers open up at home against Houston in the season opener, which means they will likely hold joint practices with the #Texans the week before.

To clarify, #Raiders do have a home, but there's a conflict on the 23rd and they want to play away from the Coliseum. Canada has been discussed, but Green Bay is the more likely site.

I wonder if Madison would be a possible neutral site? They have played there in the past with a very good turnout.

Winnipeg might be the host for the Packers-Raiders preseason game.
