We all know the National Football League’s 2012 season kick-off is right around the corner.

We can smell it, we can taste it.

The Packers convincing win over 2011 AFC Playoff participant Cincinnati Bengals really got Packers fans buzzing.

Two horrible losses to start the preseason was brought to an end when Aaron Rodgers led the Packers up and down the field with his arm and legs.

We also saw an aggressive defensive attack give us hope of great things to come on that side of the ball in 2012.

We’re excited because the Packers have a bevy of good, young defensive players; we’re excited because running back Cedric Benson’s debut was rather stunning; we’re excited because Aaron Rodgers continues to show why he’s the best player in the league; and we’re excited because the Packers’ season-opener against the San Francisco 49ers is nipping at our heels.

We’re ready.

Here’s a video featuring my photography from games over the past couple of years.

Enjoy this Packers-less Sunday as best you can. This video should help.
