Hello, Packers fans!
A few notes for Web site and magazine readers:
— The next of our twice-monthly chats will take place on Monday, April 13, at 7 p.m. Central. This chat is for subscribers only, and it's a great way to ask me about the upcoming draft or whatever is on your mind. The chat room link is right here. Or, go to Forums and connect to the Chat Room from there.
I look forward to talking to you. If you are not a subscriber, this is a perfect time, especially with our BOGO campaign. As I write this on Monday morning, we're down to about 36 hours to take advantage of this offer!
Not to toot our own horn (but allow me to toot, anyway), we have been the place to go this offseason. No place told you where our scouts were on a daily basis. We've been the first to report five of the seven confirmed prospect visits to Green Bay, and we've had exclusive interviews with many of those players. And now, our position-by-position draft previews are under way.
Plus, we have introduced you to more legitimate Packers prospects — with first-hand reporting with the players, not shamelessly stolen quotes — than probably every place on the Internet combined.
Plus, we have our every-other-week chats with yours truly (after tonight's chat, our next will be on the Monday after the draft), and the opportunity to send questions to our NFL insiders. I know times out there are tough for a lot of you, and I am making it my mission to make your investment worthwhile.
— Week 2 of Scout.com Radio will be on Tuesday night. This great show, hosted by Scout.com draft expert Chris Steuber, will feature yours truly, as well as USC quarterback Mark Sanchez and Baylor offensive tackle Jason Smith. Click here for details.
— 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 fans 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 email@example.com, or send it in the mail to Melissa Dill, 2003 Sylvan Drive, Green Bay, WI 54313. And if you've been featured recently and need extra copies, shoot me an e-mail.
— Speaking of the magazine, our latest issue has been out for a couple weeks. We have quick-hit profiles on more than 200 draft prospects, and I have features on six players who could be the Packers' selection at No. 9. Plus, we have a question-and-answer with Boyd Dowler, a look at how the new defense fits former first-round picks A.J. Hawk and Justin Harrell, and a terrific update on John Brockington, who needed a kidney transplant and has made raising awareness of the importance of organ donation a staple in his life.
If you live in the Green Bay area, they are for sale at the Packers Pro Shop in Lambeau Field, as well as several businesses by the stadium: Card and Coin Corner and the Shell, Citgo and Express Convenience Store. We also have some in the airport gift shop. If you want a copy, send me an e-mail.
— And finally, you can find me on Facebook and follow breaking news on Twitter. Find me on Facebook at firstname.lastname@example.org and on Twitter at twitter.com/packerreport.
Thanks for reading, and e-mail me any time.
