Favre At Lambeau in GB Preseason?
By By Jay Sorgi
The Green Bay Packers will play a Super Bowl team from 2008 and the AFC's '08 number one playoff seed as part of its 2009 preseason schedule, but perhaps the spotlight game may come when the Cleveland Browns come to town.
Week one of the Packers' preseason will bring the Cleveland Browns to Lambeau Field in the Midwest Shrine game, to be played anywhere between Thursday, August 13th and Monday, August 17th.
A report from the New York Daily News said that Brett Favre was invited to assist in Browns training camp, which would mean that if the report is correct, and knowing his past, unpredictable offseason history, there is a chance number four may find his way to Lambeau Field for the Packers' first preseason game, though it's unknown in what capacity.
Favre has not been released from the New York Jets, who still currently hold his rights.
Week two brings the Buffalo Bills to Lambeau Field for the team's second preseason game, the Bishop's Charities Game, between Thursday Aug. 20 and Monday, Aug. 24.
The third week delivers the Packers to Arizona where they take on a Cardinals team which lost Super Bowl XLIII to the Pittsburgh Steelers. That game could happen Thursday, Aug. 27-Monday, Aug. 31.
The final preseason game brings Green Bay to Nashville for a contest with the Tennessee Titans, on either Thursday. Sept. 3 or Friday, Sept. 4.
Specific days and times have yet to be determined.
