GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Renovations at Lambeau Field are 70 percent complete, and the Green Bay Packers' own makeover remains very much a work in progress.
Despite beating the Cleveland Browns 27-20 last night, the Packers culminated a week of sloppy practices with an ugly performance by their starters.
Plus, Terry Glenn failed to make his much-anticipated Packers debut in the first game at the "new" Lambeau Field, which is halfway through a two-year, $295million refurbishing.
The Browns returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown and took a 14-0 lead by the time Brett Favre had taken his fourth snap.
"The kickoff return for a touchdown is not the way we want to start. Plus, they're killing us on screens," Packers coach Mike Sherman fumed at halftime.
Last week, Sherman was so disgusted with sloppy practices that he forced his players to return for a full-pads workout.
