1:48-At lot made today of the entire “Lambeau Field experience” as well as the idea of playing the Packers in the cold in December. Here is a smattering of things we’ve heard….

John Harbaugh:
“It’s a great place to play, and our guys are looking forward to it.”

Joe Flacco:
Cold weather “never really affected me…..I like playing in the cold.”
“I’m sure Green Bay will be a fun place to play.”

Ray Lewis:
“It don’t get no better” than playing at Lambeau Field.
Stadiums like Lambeau Field “keep the tradition of football alive.” (He said it compared-to a lesser extent-to the Orange Bowl in Miami where he played in college.)

Ray Rice:
Lambeau Field is “lengendary… remember the Brett Favre moments. I can’t wait to get out there.”
“Cold is not gonna matter to me” (because he’s from New York).

Jarret Johnson:
“Reggie White was my favorite player” growing up.
He had a best friend growing up who was a Packers fans, they used to watch the games together and wear the cheeseheads.

1:30-Practice update:

Terrell Suggs (knee), Ed Reed (shoulder/neck/you name it) and Jared Gaither (unknown) were not out on the practice field during the portion of practice open to the media. Gaither doesn’t appear to be a concern-as Oniel Cousins was working with the first team instead of Oher and Marshal Yanda sliding over.

Matt Birk (neck) and Le’Ron McClain (unknown) were each on the field, but dressed in shorts and unlikely to be full participants.

11:09-Greetings from 1 Winning Drive, where we will be hearing from a number of Baltimore Ravens and Green Bay Packers today before their Monday Night Football matchup at Lambeau Field. Today will be like a typical Wednesday out here-as we will hear from John Harbaugh, Ray Lewis, Joe Flacco and other Ravens players; while Packers Coach Mike McCarthy and QB Aaron Rodgers will be available this afternoon via teleconference. We will also be able to watch practice again today and we will see our first injury report of the week. Terrell Suggs is the biggest question mark surrounding the team-but we are not expecting to see him out there.
