Packers News: Bart Starr, Da Bearz, Lions

This post may be like one of those random flow of consciousness (or, perhaps, unconsciousness) ramblings like Larry King did in his column for so many years. You know, the type of thing where you read it and immediately go, "What?". Yeah, well, we'll try to do a better job than that. It's the least we can do for our great readers. Yes, you know who you are.

Anyway, news broke this morning that Packers' great and NFL Hall of Famer, Bart Starr, collapsed following a speech in Madison, WI. Reports are that he is doing fine. But obviously, something like this is not normal and "fine" can have a whole range of meanings. You can read more here. Get well soon, Bart! (Photo by Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports)

Urlacher out for season?
There was some buzz in the Twitter-sphere and mainstream sports media this afternoon that Da Bearz linebacker, Brian Urlacher, is likely out for at least the next three games and perhaps the season as a result of the hamstring injury he sustained in Chicago's loss (yes!) to the Seahawks. If Urlacher is out for the game with the Pack in less than two weeks, that will change things considerably...at least for Da Bearz. Stay tuned for future developments.

Packers - Lions Preview
Given the historical nature of the rivalry between the Pack and the Lions, we'll be posting at least one or more stories related to the upcoming game Sunday evening beginning Thursday, if all goes well. Start checking back then for info that you just won't be able to live without. OK, you could...but would you want to? I think not!
