There's a phrase being bandied about Packer Nation these days, and with good reason.
"It. Is. Time."
The dawn of a new season is upon us, and Packers fans are ready.
On Twitter, we excited fans most about the start of the season. Some seem to enjoy the promise of a new beginning...
@Packerpedia New season. Everyone is 0-0. Last season means nothing now!— Andrew Boudreau (@boudz5223) September 6, 2013
@Packerpedia the hype, the stories, the promise of a great season, and knowing NFL will be on for the next 6 Months!— Ryan (@RBINNY39) September 5, 2013

Many fans look forward to seeing how a new wrinkle in the offense unfolds...
@Packerpedia Definitely our rookie running backs, especially Lacy. How effective can he be fresh out of the gate. Also Micah Hyde— Dustin (@AJPhenomenal1) September 6, 2013
Others are excited about what they see on the other side of the ball...
@Packerpedia defense!— PackerGreg (@DrGTP) September 6, 2013
@Packerpedia Johnny Jolly back and a potential for an overall good pass rush.— Dustin (@nitsudkyos) September 6, 2013
Some people like to see what a few of the younger players might bring to the table...
@Packerpedia The incoming players. Great to see guys get that shot on the biggest stage.— Andrew Boudreau (@boudz5223) September 7, 2013

...While others are just looking forward to seeing how the Packers stack up against the 49ers this time around...
@Packerpedia to see of GB is a tougher more physical team! First game a great test!— Jeff Nelson (@jeffnc1) September 5, 2013
@Packerpedia definitely how they're going to stop the read option. A huge hole in our D last year— Riley Thornbrugh (@iClumsyNinja) September 6, 2013
There are some fans, of course, who already have their eye on the prize...
@Packerpedia Realized expectations!— Zingding (@packerzing) September 7, 2013

For many, it seems like the wait has lasted forever...
@Packerpedia 1. The talking ends. 2. I can determine if Capers has pulled his head out of his ass yet.— Scott DeRuyter (@SDMad) September 5, 2013
@Packerpedia that first sip of beer at kickoff?— Not Obama's Bitch (@TrippHardin) September 5, 2013
...While others have the ability to take a step back and wax poetic...
@Packerpedia The bam from Lacy; the boom from Jolly; the snap from Rodgers; the crackle from Cobb; and the pop from Hyde— lombardiave.com (@lombardiave) September 6, 2013
But for a large element of Packers fans, when you ask them what they are most excited about when it comes to the new season, the answer is simple:
@Packerpedia what doesn't excite me.— Bom Doubt (@Sam_SheaPDX) September 5, 2013
