It looks tough, but then again, if we do win most of the games and hopefully the division, we will know it’s because we have a decent team, and not because we had a weak schedule.

That Rams game is gonna be rough. Not looking forward to watching the Packers try to block Aaron Donald and Suh while trying to throw against Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters.

This year the GB Defense will face Teams with some of the NFL's best Running Backs. Among them I include the Ram's Todd Gurley and the Falcon's Devonta Freeman. David Johnson for the Cardinals and Rob Kelly for the Redskins are two others.

GB's already strong front 3 and the LB corp will need to stop these strong runners and provide a serious pass rush as well. The Patriots can be counted on to have a respectable running attack as well. More can also step up their running games that we may not see just yet.

IMO, BG saw this coming difficulty and acquired Mohammad Wilkerson to help to deal with it.

The Safeties and maybe even the CBs could be needed to stop some of these elite runners.

The 2018 Packer Schedule

Days, Dates, and times are not yet available.


Is a schedule, really a schedule, without days, dates and times?

Just a philosophy question

Knowing who your opponents are, is as important as knowing who your opponents are not. Unless GB plays them in the playoffs or the SB, the Packers do not have to play the Cowboys or the Saints or the Giants or the Panthers or the Bengals. They can observe the Browns as they look to crawl out of the league basement or the Texans as their QB returns from the injury list.

Also, based upon last season, GB will be facing one of the NFL's toughest schedules in 2018. Teams like the Broncos or the Colts or the Ravens are not a part of GB's 2018 preparations. GB will be facing QBs like Brady and Stafford and Wilson.

GameTickets, Hotel Accomodations, Plane or Train tickets, and more are also important. I can't say why the league delays to announce important pieces of information like Days/Times for games.

Playing 3 teams we beat in Super Bowls in the preseason.
I wonder how many passes Jordy Nelson will catch in the Oakland game?

And 1 team we beat in a SB (NE) in the regular season. Only Denver, the team that beat the Packers is not on the 2018 Schedule.

As for Jordy Nelson, GB's CBs will have a lot to with how well he does. Should be a lot of familiar faces in that game. Smile

With the full release last night of the full NFL Schedule, it is now possible for ZERO to post the new 2018 Packers Schedule in place of the 2017 Packers Schedule. This thread stands ready to post any and all comments regarding it.

Cheers!

Just a few observations that popped up when I saw the schedule:
1) They must get off to a good start before the bye
2) The bye comes at a good time leading into 4 out of 5 tough road games
3) Bye #2 (ten days off before playing @ the Vikes) couldn't have come at a better time.
4) The last 5 games in December looks good playing 3 dome teams at home.

Ideally they start off hot, steal a couple of road games in November and finish strong.

The real homework needed is how does the timing for the opposing teams set up. Who do we play after they have had a bye that would be to their advantage? Who do we catch on their 2nd or third consecutive road game (statistically a hard win for the road team). I haven't gone that in depth with opposing team schedules

Pre-season wise it's a tough schedule that looks reasonably set up other than the back to back road trips to the Rams/Pats and then Seattle/Vikes. Of course once the season starts the schedule takes on a nature of its' own. What teams are hurting? What teams are hot vs. what teams are not? I remember noting one year where a team played like 8 games against teams without their starting qb. Incredibly lucky yes but goes to show it's not just who you play but when you play them.

gbguy20 (1h) : poor guy is a glutton for punishment
Porforis (4h) : Larry Fitzgerald returning for a 16th season on a 1 year contract.
Zero2Cool (18h) : Again, Pro Bowl. Wasted talk.
Zero2Cool (18h) : NE had no Pro Bowlers in O line that goes 7th-rder, 3rd, undrafted, 4th, 5th.
gbguy20 (21h) : poo
Zero2Cool (22-Jan) : I don't know what you're talking about. It says 2019!!! ;-)
beast (22-Jan) : It's in the Packers Coach Tracker thread (though it says 2018 instead of 2019)
Smokey (22-Jan) : What is the source of your Justin Outten announcement?
beast (22-Jan) : New TE coach Justin Outten
beast (22-Jan) : The Falcons :-p (seriously, they have to watch the Patriots play in the Superbowl in their own house... gotta hurt.
Smokey (22-Jan) : Who is the home team for the 2019 SB game ?
Zero2Cool (22-Jan) : Pro Bowl is a joke, no one takes it seriously, no one.
Smokey (22-Jan) : Being selected a Pro Bowler goes on your resume' and becomes a part of your introduction for the rest of your life.
Nonstopdrivel (22-Jan) : Maybe in the first four frames.
Zero2Cool (22-Jan) : 147
KRK (22-Jan) : I didnt think Jared Cook was a bowler. Whats his average?

nerdmann (21-Jan) : Jared Cook to Pro Bowl.
beast (21-Jan) : Is that 2 minutes in real time or slomo time? :P JK
Zero2Cool (21-Jan) : If you need to look at it via SLOMO for more than 2 minutes, your rules are too difficult.
beast (21-Jan) : I sometimes think they should eliminate slow mo for fans for that reason... then deside, it's not hurting enough, keep it.
TheKanataThrilla (21-Jan) : They review PI calls in the CFL. In slow motion many calls look like PI. The fact is there were at least 3 refs looking at the play and they all botched it.
Zero2Cool (21-Jan) : Only LaFleur knows how many coaches are left. He might decide no QB coach
beast (21-Jan) : Making PI calls reviewable might just lead to more PI calls... also I wonder what Sean Peyton (maybe on that committee thinks about noncalls being reviewable
beast (21-Jan) : It all depends on how they set it up... at bare minimum ST coordinator and all the assistants. Rest might be optional/base on setup
gbguy20 (21-Jan) : hi how many damn coaches do we have left to replace? qb, ST and ST asst, ILB? what else?

Zero2Cool (21-Jan) : Aaron Rodgers was the only qualified NFL QB to not throw an INT on deep passes this season – despite throwing the second-most deep pass attempts this year (91).
Zero2Cool (21-Jan) : Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Dolphins plan to hire Packers run game coordinator/inside linebackers coach Patrick Graham as their defensive coordinator.

gbguy20 (21-Jan) : dyspeptic
Nonstopdrivel (21-Jan) : So aggravating and unsatisfying.
Nonstopdrivel (21-Jan) : I have the same sort of dyspeptic feeling after this game that I often had after big games coached by Mike McCarthy.
beast (21-Jan) : Also Chiefs got an INT, then the guy lined up too close...
gbguy20 (21-Jan) : you're right about the chiefs Defense. get stops on first and second then fail on 3rd and long time and time again
gbguy20 (21-Jan) : the guy is incredible
gbguy20 (21-Jan) : it's been a long time since we have seen rodgers play as well as brady did these last few weeks
rabidgopher04 (21-Jan) : They are good, but I just don’t like them.
rabidgopher04 (21-Jan) : Chiefs looked a lot like the McCarthy Packers of old. Amazing offense and a defense that can’t get a 3rd down stop. Probably not watching the Super Bowl this year. So tired of the Patriots. They are g
gbguy20 (21-Jan) : do we get brady too?
