Hello, Packers fans!
A few notes for Web site and magazine readers:
— The next of our twice-monthly chats will take place on Monday at 7 p.m. Central (8 p.m. for me here in Indianapolis). This chat is for subscribers only, and it's a great way to ask me about the NFL Scouting Combine, free agency or whatever's on your mind. Click on Forums, and there's a link to the chat room.
I look forward to talking to you. If you miss it, I will post a transcript afterward. If you are not a subscriber, give us a test drive with the seven-day free trial or sign up. With the Combine wrapping up and free agency starting on Feb. 27, we are in the heart of the offseason. Powered by the resources of Scout.com, we will be the go-to place as the Packers gear up for a critical offseason.
— For the magazine, I am always looking for photos of Fan-Tastic Packer Backers. Have a photo that proves that you, your kids or your pets are the biggest Packers fan on the block? Do you have a favorite photo of yourself or friends and family in Lambeau Field or tailgating outside? If so, e-mail it to me with details to firstname.lastname@example.org, or send it in the mail to Melissa Dill, 2003 Sylvan Drive, Green Bay, WI 54313.
— Speaking of the magazine, our latest issue just came out. It is focused on free agency and includes quick-hit capsules on about 220 free agents. Among the other highlights are a look back to what the ultimate free agent, Reggie White, meant to the team; a look at the comparative success of Ron Wolf and Ted Thompson; and a look back at some big-time free agent busts, led by Joe Johnson.
Thanks for reading, and Go Pack Go!
