    We have a good bye week this year. We face most of the tough teams at the beginning of the year.

    what do you guys think?

    The first month and a half looks rough on paper. All in all not bad.

    Interesting schedule. Could be really tough if a few teams make the jump.

    Predictions as of now...
    Seattle- Packers start slow, which hasnt necessarily been the case the last couple of years but is a relatively common trend. Wilson escapes pressure and makes a couple big throws to Baldwin. There is no answer for Jimmy Graham.-Close Loss 0-1

    Atlanta- the RB duo is a menace and Julio Jones can't be stopped. Taylor Gabriel has a long score. Falcons' defensive speed creates a few key stops. - Blowout Loss 0-2

    Cincinnati- the Bengals o-line is decimated and Dalton isn't good enough to take over without the protection. An aging/average bengals secondary can't stop Rodgers. -Blowout Win 1-2

    Chicago- Howard has a few good runs, but this team simply doesn't have the QB or secondary
    to keep up. Blowout win 2-2

    Cowboys- "America's team" now fields a secondary worse than GB's and there are no great pass rushers. Dak Prescott can't beat Rodgers in this kind of game, regardless of Elliot's performance. Close win 3-2

    Minnesota- Bradford has an ok game but GB's tackles slow down the rush and Waynes/Smith can't cover everyone. Close win 4-2

    New Orleans- NO's defense has waaaaaaay too many holes. Brees and Rodgers throw for a million yards. Shootout win 5-2

    Detroit- Stafford is hard to disrupt due to O line improvement, but the defense can't touch or defend Rodgers. Shootout win 6-2

    Chicago- same as before. Blowout win 7-2

    Baltimore- The offense doesn't scare anyone, neither does a CB duo of Smith and Carr. Close win- 8-2

    Pittsburgh- Too many offensive weapons for GB to handle. Blowout loss 8-3

    Tampa Bay- if the Bucs add another offensive weapon, this gets really interesting. But...Winston throws a bad pick and Rodgers spreads things around to get it done. Close win 9-3

    Cleveland- Blowout win 10-3

    Carolina- the GB defense can't really stop Cam Newton, but Carolina's older, slower defensive ends and average secondary allow Rodgers to move around and make big plays. Close win 11-3

    Minnesota- Same as before. They can have a good defense but who on that offense provides any legitimate and/or consistent threat? Close win 12-3

    Detroit- Same as before, a battle of the QB's. fortunately GB has one of the greatest to ever do it. Shootout win 12-4.


    Obviously right now I'm predicting that the defense will be terrible once again, but Rodgers has more weapons in Bennett, Kendricks, and Montgomery with a full offseason at RB. If Taylor and the new RG perform at a decent level, this is an offense that should average close to 30 points a game.

    We definitely have a pretty tough start to the season.
    It's still hard to predict since we still haven't drafted or finalize our roster yet.

    Early prediction for me would be 11-5 and another NFC North Title.

    I mean, that's really what it amounts too. Whether it be by injury or by general regression or growth, it's so hard to predict who's actually going to be good.

    Look at Atlanta and Carolina last year. At schedule release last year, we would have probably counted Atlanta as a close or easy win and Carolina as a loss or a really tough win. And that's not at all how it turned out.

    Like haha tweeted and tj Lang commented on, the best thing to look at is the bye. Guys like mid season byes. It breaks up the season well and allows you to really get things in order for the 2nd half.

    Plus we have the benefit of playing Chicago (who despite having turnover at qb) should be a relatively familiar opponent which then gives us sort of a mini bye somewhat early in the year as well. So I'm that sense, the schedule looks pretty decent.

    I don't see us sweeping the division. I think we split with Minnesota and Detroit. Bears always give us a good game for the most part but they're in full rebuild mode so i can see us sweeping them.

    I just did the predictions as of now for fun. I know things will really end up being quite different. I do think a straight up division sweep is very possible though.

    Division games are always tough, but I think we are still clearly the class of the division as will likely be favored in all game assuming Rodgers isn't hurt. I think the lions overacheived last year and could be a prime candidate for regression. And the vikes still don't have a qb or even a somewhat consistent offense. It's far from a sure thing that we sweep the division, but I like our chances to.

    No way we sweep the division, but it's fair to pick us to win each game, because we are the better team. It would also be fair to pick us to lose at detroit or Minnesota.

    The schedule is set up perfect for us. We play really good teams early when they don't matter and then it gets a little easier later on when the games matter to us. It's set up well for A Rod to tell us to relax sometime in September or early October.

    There's probably a good chance that we do lose a divisional game, but I think our division is relatively weak. The lions got super lucky last year, if you look at football outsiders estimated wins and Pythagorean wins, those two metrics said the lions should have been either 5-11 or 7-9.

    The bears basically swapped Barkley for glennon or trubisky. They added a decent corner and lost their top wr. The rest of their draft was not likely immediate impact guys. So I don't think the bears for any better to be honest.

    And the vikes added some linemen and two big nam rbs, but their line still isn't very good in my mind. And they needed a near perfect game from Bradford last year to beat us. Not sure he's going to play anywhere near that level again this year. So even with their improvements, they're probably closer to a 7 win team than an 11 win team.

    worst case scenario we finish 10-6. It really depends on how good we do before our bye cuz our schedule looks great after bye week other than @PIT and @CAR
