Packers vs. Steelers Justin McCray Jersey , Preseason 2018: First half game updates & discussion Tonight, the Green Bay Packers take the field for their second preseason game of 2018, hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers in a battle of players trying to make the rosters of the two legendary franchises. For Pittsburgh, the stars are sitting — Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, and Cameron Heyward will not dress for the game, and running back Le’Veon Bell is still holding out.We’re looking for more readers to join the Acme Packing Company FanPulse group and weigh in on polls tracking the Packers’ 2018 season!Click here for more information or click here to sign up.It’s not all bubble players on the field for the Packers, however. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has said that he expects to play tonight, and head coach Mike McCarthy indicated that it was his plan as well to get his veteran leader on the field. The question will be how much will we see of #12 and will we also see the rest of the team’s starters?A few players we know we will see are the Packers’ young wide receivers Preston Smith Jersey , who largely impressed in the opener last week. Marquez Valdes-Scantling had the biggest numbers, with a five-catch, 101-yard, one-touchdown performance, while Jake Kumerow’s 52-yard touchdown reception put a bow on the game for Green Bay. Will they keep up their recent success? Click here for our Game Primer to get all the details for watching tonight’s game and tune in to find out.Game Updates from APC StaffA Twitter List by acmepackingco Game Updates from Packers MediaA Twitter List by TexWestern As the Green Bay Packers continue their search for a head coach to succeed Mike McCarthy and interim head coach Joe Philbin, a few newsworthy bits of information have come out in the past few hours.The first involves Northwestern head coach Pat Fitzgerald, who is rumored to be one of the top candidates for Packers president Mark Murphy. Of course, when serving as Northwestern’s athletic director, Murphy hired Fitzgerald as the school’s head football coach Ty Summers Jersey 2019 , making the connection between the two appear quite strong.However, following Northwestern’s 31-20 victory over Utah in the Holiday Bowl on Monday night, Fitzgerald was asked about the possibility that he could leave Evanston for another opportunity — presumably the Packers job. His response was emphatic:“Hashtag Go Cats, man. I’m not going anywhere. This is home forever.”That can probably end any speculation about Fitzgerald becoming the Packers’ head coach. Although other coaches have made similar statements in the past and backtracked, Fitzgerald truly is in his dream job, having grown up just outside of Chicago and played his college football for the Wildcats. Although the Packers reportedly planned to submit their request to interview Fitzgerald following the bowl game, given those comments they may not bother to do so.Meanwhile, we now have confirmation that the Packers will indeed interview New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, as expected. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that the team will interview McDaniels on Friday of this week Jace Sternberger Green Bay Packer , which is allowed under the NFL’s interview rules. The Patriots have a first-round bye, meaning teams can interview that team’s coaches in the week leading up to the Wild Card games. The team also plans to interview New Orleans tight ends coach Dan Campbell after talking to McDaniels, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.If the Patriots or Saints advance to the Super Bowl, the first opportunity that the Packers would have for follow-up interviews would be in the week following the Conference Championship games.Finally, Rapoport also indicated that Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio will interview with the Miami Dolphins and Denver Broncos next Monday. It would appear that the Packers are not considering Fangio at this time, as there have been no reports of the team reaching out to interview him. However, they could be waiting until next week to request an interview, since the Bears are playing in a Wild Card game and Fangio is unavailable to meet with teams until after that round of games.Keep it here at Acme Packing Company for more news on the Packers’ search.
