Now that the NFL season is here, I'm putting a twist on my weekly Blogger on Blogger series. Each week, I hope to enlist a blogger who regularly writes about the Ravens' opponent to help me break down the game. This week, I exchanged emails with Zach Kruse, who blogs about the Packers for Cheesehead TV . MV: The Packers were my Super Bowl pick, so you're welcome for the kiss of death. But right now, what are we to make of a Packers team that has two wins and lost to two good teams on the road?

In eager anticipation of the 2013 NFL season, Baltimore Sun blogger and reporter Matt Vensel will take a daily look at one of the 13 opponents on the Ravens' regular-season schedule. Today is the Green Bay Packers. The Ravens' Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers figures to be one of the most anticipated games on their regular-season schedule, particularly among those played at M&T Bank Stadium. The Packers, led by former MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers, won the Super Bowl three years ago and are perennial contenders in the NFC. The Ravens, led by Super Bowl MVP quarterback Joe Flacco, are the reigning champions and are perennial contenders in the AFC. Fans of offensive football should be looking forward to this one. I know I am. Recapping 2012: Despite being robbed of one win by the replacement refs, the Packers finished 11-5 last season and won the NFC North.

It was, Willie Richardson said, the perfect send-off. Against Pittsburgh in 1971, the Colts' veteran caught two touchdown passes within two minutes to break open a 34-21 victory at Memorial Stadium. They would be the final TDs in a nine-year career for Richardson, an All-Pro receiver. He'd been dealt to Pittsburgh in 1970 only to return, a year later, as a free agent - just in time to stomp the Steelers. Released at season's end, he retired, a happy man. "I never wanted to leave Baltimore in the first place," recalled Richardson, 73. "But to come back and have that kind of a game, in front of the Colts fans, was icing on the cake for me. " Nowadays, he is color commentator for football games at Jackson State, his alma mater.

Two Baltimore groups were among 10 around the Chesapeake Bay receiving $376,000 Wednesday to "green" their communities while also providing job training. Belair-Edison Neighborhoods Inc. and Southeast Community Development Corp. were awarded a combined $102,000 under the Environmental Protection Agency 's " Green Streets-Green Jobs-Green Towns " initiative. Under the program, local governments and nonprofit organizations can get grants for projects involving tree-plantings and other measures to reduce storm-water washing into local waters.  Assistance is also provided to train people in constructing such projects.

In a legislative session marked by discord over taxes and gambling, lawmakers came together to pass three major bills aimed at boosting Chesapeake Bay cleanup efforts. They failed to agree, however, on other environmental priorities - a bill to subsidize building wind turbines off Ocean City, and a measure requiring natural gas companies to pay for studying the impacts of drilling for energy in western Maryland. The General Assembly approved two bay billls that were priorities of the O'Malley administration bills, one doubling the 'flush fee' to pay for upgrading sewage treatment plants and another limiting rural development on septic systems.  A third late-moving bill pushed by environmentalists would require Baltimore city and nine suburban counties to levy local fees to pay for curbing polluted runoff from their streets and parking lots.

Still too soon to say Sam Farmer Los Angeles Times Of course the Packers stand a chance of going undefeated in the regular season. Will they? I doubt it. We're just five weeks into the season, and so many things can happen over the next 11 games — key injuries, a letdown, or simply a good team that's better than Green Bay on that particular day. Plus, there's the likelihood that if the Packers were to build a comfortable lead in the division — no guarantee, considering how Detroit is playing — they would take their foot off the pedal, rest some starters, and coast into the postseason.

Stop me if you've heard this. A man walks into a Packers bar in Millersville. No, wait, that's no joke. There really is a Green Bay Packers bar in Millersville: Bullseye Sports Bar and Grill, tucked between motels catering to long-haul truckers and home of a Super Bowl $10 All-You-Can-Eat Bratwurst Buffet. The walls are devoted to everything Green Bay: photos, news clippings, jerseys, even a figurine at the end of the bar dressed in green and gold and wearing a cheesehead. And that devotion is personified in Lou Ann Beecher, a ball of energy who helps out around the bar and persuaded restaurant owner Laverda Ensey to surrender her establishment to Packers Nation eight years ago. "The Bullseye is a little bit of Lambeau Field right here in Maryland," says Beecher, 55, as she delivers brats and cheese curds flown in from Wisconsin to the bar along with Packers tablecloths, napkins and souvenir beads.

It's time for the Ravens to introduce the Miami Dolphins to a term that they probably haven't heard this year. Road kill. The Dolphins seem to have found a comfort zone on the road, as evidenced by their 4-0 record away from home and their inexplicable inability to register a victory at Dolphins Stadium. It's a highly unusual dichotomy which needs to be corrected on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium. The oddsmakers obviously aren't impressed. They've installed the Ravens as a 5 1/2-point favorite to come off their bye week and show the Dolphins what it's like to play in a truly hostile environment — and I'm not just talking about the decibel level on the field.
