I'm also not too confident. Jordon wasn't even playin with the 1st team until Brown was released. As for Turk...I'd prob feel more comfortable with Charleston starting. But I just need to trust the coaches here.

I feel the same way. Not having Smith for this game worries me a lot.

Green Bay is over-rated, but opening day at Lambeau after a Superbowl season probably gives them a TD advantage from the start. I'd feel much better if Will Smith was all up in Rodgers grill all game.

We will just have to rely on Ellis, Franklin, & Rodgers to be up in his grill all day!

With those big tackles getting double teamed all day, that should help our ends be able to get pressure, hopefully mask the Smith suspension...

GW will find ways to pressure Rodgers sure enough. I'm more concerned with our own o line and LBs.

On the other hand, this is already the 3rd season opening game in SP's tenure as the HC, while GB hasn't been in one during that same stretch.

While it doesn't necessarily mean that the Saints have the edge, I would think that it gives them an edge in the preparation department, which might remove that TD advantage you mentioned GB would otherwise have.

Either way, playing in Lambeau... Glad it's early and not late in the season!

Too bad Franklin probably won't play. We can use all the beef we can get.
