CHARLOTTESVILLE — As a West Coast guy, Steve Fairchild can't tell you much about the good barbecue spots along Tobacco Road. He actually had a hard time remembering the last time he was even in the state of Virginia when he was asked Tuesday...

Maybe it’s just me, but I was totally unimpressed with the Packers defense. Completely and absolutely unimpressed. It was bad last season. It looked bad to start this season.
