    From all indications, Packers linebacker Nick Barnett will get his wish Sunday night against the Chicago Bears. "I definitely think Nick Barnett will run out of the tunnel and play like he always has in the past," head coach Mike McCarthy said Monday. In McCarthy-speak, that means Barnett, nine months after having the ACL in his right knee repaired, will start the season opener. What remains to be seen is how much Barnett plays and in what packages and McCarthy won't be unveiling those plans any time soon. "I think Nick will definitely play in the game," McCarthy said. "What packages and so forth that he'll play in, we'll find out Sunday night."
