Requesting pocket schedules

July 28, 2009 - Ron Deuter
I called the NFC North teams to request a supply of pocket schedules for the upcoming season. I think my brief experience with each team's front office pretty much sums up each club. I'm not making this up. This is what really happened with each team.

Bears - I called their main switchboard. They answered before the first ring finished and transferred me to the correct person in less than five seconds. I provided my info and the schedules arrived FedEx ground the next day. Smooth, efficient and effective. Much like the Bears offense will function under new QB Jay Cutler.

Vikings - I called their main switchboard. They answered right away and transferred me to a person whose voicemail indicated they were on vacation for the week. I left my info in a message and am waiting to see if I get anything. I suppose Minnesota is used to waiting this summer. Makes sense I'd have to wait with no definite indication if I am or am not going to receive pocket schedules.

Packers - I called their main switchboard. A lady said I would need to send my request in writing before they would send me any pocket schedules. This makes perfect sense too. Why would the Packers, of all teams, want to go through the the time, effort and preparation of sending me pocket schedules when I could decide to change my mind at the last minute.

Lions - This one truly speaks volumes. I called their main switchboard. They answered after about nine rings. After being placed on hold for a good minute and a half, I was transferred to the right person. I made my request and began to provide my info but was interrupted by the woman on the other end. "Whoa, you're going way too fast," she said. "Can you slow down?"
