Live Chat To Welcome Josh Bidwell, Friday


Now in his fourth NFL season, Packers punter Josh Bidwell has been Mr. Reliable for the Green Bay Packers.

Impressively consistent, even in the frequently nasty winter weather of Lambeau Field, Bidwell is three clean punts away from setting a team regular-season record for unblocked punts.

Last week in Arizona, Bidwell was a bright spot with a 43.3-yard average on four punts, three of which were downed inside the Cardinals' 20-yard line, including one at the 2.

Those punts are significant to more than just the Packers, as this season Bidwell is donating $125 for every punt downed inside the 20-yard line to The Angel Fund, Inc., a Green Bay organization that assists with the medical expenses of children fighting cancer.

Bidwell himself is a cancer survivor, having been initially diagnosed just after the Packers drafted him out of the University of Oregon in 1999.

This Friday, at approximately 1:30 p.m. CT, fans will have a chance to get to know Bidwell, who will sit down for an exclusive Live Chat on

We've had some excellent chats so far this season, largely due to the outstanding questions submitted by Packers fans.

If you plan to take part in Friday's chat, please be sure to remember the following tips:

Be courteous and respectful. will not post any profanity, and chat guests are unlikely to answer questions that are rude in nature. If you have 'tough' questions, think about how you want to word them so they will get answered.

Be thoughtful. Among the hundreds of questions submitted, the ones that stand out tend to get the best answers. Anticipate some of the common questions and try to ask something unique. Chats are often bogged down with the same questions being asked over and over again. Be different.

Send questions once. Sending the same question multiple times will not get your question noticed. Instead, your submissions will be flagged and ignored.

Finally, remember that this is your chance to chat with members of the Packers. Utilize the option to its fullest. We hope you have fun!
