Who's the leader of the Pack?

Undoubtedly we'd answer that question with the name Brett Favre. And that's true in so many ways, on and off the field. But you might be surprised to learn that, among a survey of some Packers' players, another name pops up that you might not expect, especially as regards leadership in the locker room: long snapper Rob Davis. Today's Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has an excellent article about this topic of team leadership and Davis in particular. You can find it here.

Packers Pep Rally Underway
Tonight's sold-out fan pep rally at Lambeau Field is underway. 15,000 fans are bundled up and enjoying themselves. Actually, some have been enjoying themselves for hours: where else but at Lambeau would fans tailgate before a pep rally? Bring on some fomer Packer favorites -- Jerry Kramer, Frank Winters, Dorsey Levens, Antonio Freeman and more -- along with outgoing Packers CEO Bob Harlan and GM Ted Thompson, and you have the makings of a fun night. For those fans in Wisconsin who couldn't get a ticket tonight, the rally is being broadcast live on WTMJ-4 TV out of Milwaukee. Again, where else but here?

Pre-rally coverage showed fans on hand from all across the country, and even one fan from Germany.

It's great to be a Packers fan! And it will be great to get a win tomorrow!
