The day after the day after, what does the former Packers CEO have to say?

As Packer fans, we're still basking in the glow of the win over the Cowboys on Sunday. Very few, Packer fans included, thought the Pack had much of a chance going into that game, especially coming off the debacle in Tampa. And, given what we've seen so far, we really aren't certain what to expect in the upcoming game against the 49ers either...which team will show up? More on that as we get closer to game time.

But it seems like a very good time to hear from the retired former CEO and President of the Packers, Bob Harlan. How is he seeing things these days?

Thanks to Bill "The Big Unit" Michaels at 620WTMJ radio in Milwaukee, we can get some of those answers. In an approximately 15-minute or so radio interview, Michaels chatted with Harlan about the current state of the Packers, Brett Favre, etc. It's as interesting for what Harlan said as what remained unspoken.

Have a listen for yourself here. Well worth it.

Vote for Clay Matthews as Rookie of the Week
You can vote for Packers LB Clay Matthews through 11 a.m. Central time Friday as the NFL Rookie of the Week for his outstanding play on Sunday. Matthews had one sack and recovered two fumbles, including one that set up the game-sealing TD. Here's one pick GM Ted Thompson got right. Just click here to vote.

Pro Bowl voting underway
You can also begin voting today for the Pro Bowl. Certainly the Packers have several players worthy of consideration: Aaron Rodgers, Charles Woodson, Donald Driver...you know who deserves it, Packer fans. Vote early and, just like in Chicago politics, vote often. Click here to do so.
