This is what I've been saying all along, but ESPN has made it official by naming the Green Bay Packers the best franchise in sports. After looking at several determining factors and polling thousands of fans, ESPN decided that our Green Bay Packers are the best franchise in sports. Categories such as stadium experience and number of championships won factored into the final decision. It's nice to see the Green Bay Packers get this kind of recognition, especially since the Green Bay Packers are a publicly owned team. The Green Bay Packers had a great end to the 2010 football season, here's hoping that the 2011 football season will end the same way.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret, I've already purchased my Green Bay Packers tickets for the 2011 season. But what about the NFL lockout? I know, I know, but you know what? I don't care! Because of other people's fear of the NFL lockout, I've been able to get first dibs at all of the Green Bay Packers tickets for the 2011 Green Bay Packers season and a very reasonable price! If there is no season, I know that I will get a full refund on all my tickets and if there is a season, then HA! I already have my tickets and you don't. When you're scrambling to find Packers tickets at the last minute, I'll be figuring out which Packers jersey to wear to the game. So why don't you do what I did and purchase your Green Bay Packers tickets when you can have free reign on all of the available seats!

The million dollar question: Will the Green Bay Packers win Super Bowl 46? Some critics seem to think so. One of the big reasons critics think the Packers will win the next Super Bowl is that none of their key players are going anywhere. The same Green Bay Packers that won the Super Bowl last season are all returning to play this season. Even better, star players such as Ryan Grant and Jermichael Finley that missed most of last season will be back. This players will be back with a vengeance, eager to get in on the excitement of winning the Super Bowl. Finally, let's not forget about Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers was named Super Bowl MVP and he only seems to get better and better each season. There's no telling what he will accomplish next season. Now, all we need is for the lockout to end. It would be a shame if the Packers didn't have the chance to go after a consecutive Super Bowl title.

Like I've said many times before, I firmly believe that the Green Bay packers 2011 season will go off without a hitch. There's too much at stake for the NFL for there not to be a season. That being said, I'd like to proceed as if there was no NFL lockout. I've been spending a little bit of time analyzing the Green Bay Packers 2011 schedule, and I would like to give you a little preview of what I think will be the most important games for the Green Bay Packers in their 2011 season.
Green Bay Packers 2011 Season Preview: The Top 5 Most Important Games
- Week 1: Packers vs. New Orleans. This game marks the season opener of the NFL 2011 season. The Green Bay Packers are fresh off their Super Bowl win and a lot of people will be looking at this game to see if the Packers can will be serious contenders for another Super Bowl win. Obviously a lot can (and will) happen between Week 1 and Week 17, but this game will set the tone for how people perceive the Packers. Plus, the game features the previous year's Super Bowl winners, the New Orelans Saints. The Saints were ousted in the first round of this years playoffs by the Seattle Seahawks in what was a huge upset. Surely, they will be back with a vengeance this year.
- Week 3: Packers at Chicago Bears. The Bears were in first place in the NFC North for the entire 2010 season, until the Green Bay Packers beat them in the NFC Championship and moved on to the Super Bowl. We know about the historic rivalry, we know how much the two teams want to defeat one another. The Bears will obviously be looking to avenge their NFC Championship loss.
- Week 5: Packers at Atlanta Falcons. Remember the last time the Packers played in Atlanta? Oh right that was the second round of the playoffs and the Packers beat the tar out of the number one ranked team in the NFC. Falcons fans were so disappointed that by the end of the game, mostly just Packers fans were left. If the Falcons play as well as they did last year, this will certainly be an exciting game.
- Week 9: Packers at San Diego Chargers. It's been awhile since the Packers have played the Chargers, but the Chargers consistently make it to the NFL playoffs. This will be a good showing of two very strong teams.
- Week 13: Packers at New York Giants. I still feel the sting of the Packers vs. New York vs. Giants NFC Championship at Lambeau Field in 2008 when the Packers lost in overtime. The Giants went on to win the Super Bowl. This past season, the Giants were eliminated from making it to the playoffs, although they had an identical record to the Packers. They were upset about it and will undoubtedly be looking for a better showing this season.
