I feel like this is the most unpredictable season in a long, long time. I have us at 8-8, but 6-10 or 12-4 wouldn't surprise me all that much, either.

Next to our team being a bit of a question mark with the coaching changes, addition of free agents and (probably) two first round rookies, a lot of our opponents could go anywhere from 6 wins to 12 wins, as well.

Take Washington. If Keenum shows even the slightest bit of what he did in Minnesota, that becomes a dangerous team. After all, they have a lot of the same parts as the team that went 6-3 before Smith got injured.

Patricia got in a lot of parts more to his liking this off-season (Read, Patriots-esque). The Lions aren't a great team on paper, but the same has been said about the Patriots many a time before they dominated the AFC yet again.

Oakland's a question mark, with lots of draft capital and a coach entering the second year, the Panthers are a different team every year (Last 7 years they haven't had two winning or losing seasons in a row), etc.

‘‘Tis true....lots of questions, not many answers right now. But I prefer to remain positive.
As was said, could be 6-10, or 12-4.
We will see!

Whoa... Predicting this soon.. okay, lets go.

I am using my faith in the defense to grow a bit more this season to win some of these games. I happen to think we hooked a break having a heavy Home schedule early on... it is going to take some time for the O to click consistently. Game I worry about that I have W's on... Chargers. One I think I should alter with a L... Panthers. But we will give up at least 1 game we should win.

Home (6-2)

W - Minnesota Vikings
W - Denver Broncos
L - Philadelphia Eagles
W - Detroit Lions
W - Oakland Raiders
L - Carolina Panthers
W - Washington Redskins
W - Chicago Bears

Away ( 5 - 3 )

Even James Jones isn't afraid to drop game by game this "early"

Reading the twitter replies..,.so many rip on Jones, yet they throw out their OPINIONS as if they are GOLD.
What makes their guesses any better then what JJ says?
It’s all guess work anyway.

James is definitely a "homer" when it comes to The Packers and Raiders.

What I like about JJ is he reports the sports news. Gives his opinion.

He doesn't try and "create" the news!

I think he has surprised quite a few on how good he has become as a reporter.

#28 Posted : Tuesday, April 23, 2019 1:31:04 PM(UTC)
That’s just it. He doesn’t hide his “homerism”. But as you said, he doesn’t make up stuff and say it’s “news”.
You look at someone like Greg Jennings. If people don’t take what he says with a grain of salt, because of his dislike of Aaron Rodgers , then they are ignoring a important part.

With over 4 months until the reg. season begins, no NFL Draft having taken place, no Training Camp or Pre-Season games to gage this seasons roster vs other teams, predicting the Packers 2019 record is just impossible at this point. Too many questions remain to be begun to be evaluated.

How will new and veteran players fit into the Packers new Offensive system? What adjustments will Head Coach LaFleur need to make? Will the Offensive Line play better this season? Will the Receivers play better in LaFleur's new offensive system? How much of an improvement will the GB RBs make in 2019?

Will the revamped GB Defense be as good as they appear to be on paper? Will the GB Pass Rush become a real factor and not just a way to contain the outside running attacks? Will last seasons improving defensive secondary benefit from the Smith's rushing opposing QBs this year?

I applaud the courage needed to dive into this unknown river, but I always went out and scouted the place before I would dive into it. I've never been one to blindly supply an uneducated opinion.

This thread ask for prediction anyway, so I shall supply one just for "fun". I will not say that they will beat this team or loose to that team. Afterall predicting what a team will do this season based upon last seasons results is just crazy.

OK, just for fun, at his point in time, the Packers could post a 10 - 6 Reg. Season record in 2019.

I reserve the right to change or amend this post as a clearer Picture of the 2019 Packers comes into view. Cool


With the fine picks that GB is making in the 2019 NFL Draft, I revising my prediction from

10 - 6
to
6 -10


If they choose to not pick players to improve the team, I can only conclude that they want to loose. Confused

If Smokey was our gm we would have drafted josh Jackson at 13 instead of 47 last year and never got Alexander, nor our Shiny new Safety this year and we would be real up a creek right now.

For as bad as last year turned out.
There are 2 things that swung games throughout the season.
#1 Special Teams
Mistake after mistake and just really poor play hurt The Packers in several games.

Rookies usually make their first impressions on Special Teams.
Just look at the size and speed the defensive guys that were drafted.
Mix them in with the 2nd a 3rd year guys , plus a new coach, I think The Packers ST"s will show vast improvement.

#2 Most important, the one stat that holds true every year.
LACK OF TURNOVERS!

One rookie who has a chance to start from day one is Savage.
Another ball hawk to add to the 3 FA pickups and last years starters, I have a feeling this is going to be a real fun defense to watch and the turnovers will once again come a plenty.

Thinking rookies can come in and solve all your problems only leads to unfullfilled great expectations.
I truly hope that Savage is the only rookie who starts from day one.
The other guys can work themselves into playing time without being thrown into the fire like The Trio of Packer WR's last year.

I have NO problem staying with my 13-3 prediction!
I actually feel more confident now that the draft is over.

THE BEST FUN HAS JUST STARTED

IT"S UNDRAFTED FREE AGENT TIME!

Change is good:
  • New coaching staff
  • Competition at every position
  • Second year DC who is the frigging best
  • Motivated 12
I am keeping my 11-5 but increasing the probability level to 68.2%.

You Negative Nellie's can go pound sand.

I am pleased the BPA on the board so often coincided a position of need for the Packers. Who would have thunk it? With all the new players they have acquired as a FA and in the draft, I say they go 11-5. It's going to be a fun year.

  2. W - Denver Broncos
  3. L - Philadelphia Eagles
  4. W - Detroit Lions
  5. W - Oakland Raiders
  6. W - Carolina Panthers
  7. W - Washington Redskins
  8. L - Chicago Bears



Away ( 3 -5 )

  1. L - Chicago Bears
  2. L - Dallas Cowboys
  3. L - Kansas City Chiefs
  4. L - Los Angeles Chargers
  5. W - San Francisco 49ers
  6. W -New York Giants
  7. W - Detroit Lions
  8. L - Minnesota Vikings




Post Draft: Changing Bears home game from L to W; 10 - 6...

  1. W - Minnesota Vikings
  2. W - Denver Broncos
  3. L - Philadelphia Eagles
  4. W - Detroit Lions
  5. W - Oakland Raiders
  6. W - Carolina Panthers

  4. L - Los Angeles Chargers
  5. W - San Francisco 49ers
  6. W -New York Giants
  7. W - Detroit Lions
  8. L - Minnesota Vikings


Random thoughts:
The D is getting way more athletic. Cut down day on that side of the ball could be painful.

I like our WR group (Adams/Allison/and the 3 2nd year), but I'm concerned on the depth if Adams goes down with any kind of injury.

I will be interested in seeing how an outside zone running game works with our outside guys (Bak/Bulaga/Graham) older, prone to injury, and not especially known as run blockers.

Concerned there might be a break-in period/learning curve associated with changing head coaches. Hope the players are able to quickly adjust.

We're going to need to get off to a good start, with @Bears/Vikes/Eagles/@Cowboys 4 out of the first 5. Eagles with a 4-day turn around is likely to be tough. It might help a bit that both the preceding game and the Eagles game are at home.

KRK (1h) : a truly great man, and great Packer. RIP Coach Starr
Zero2Cool (3h) : Bart Starr has passed away.
wpr (5h) : Happy birthday NSD
Cheesey (7h) : They never made adjustments against the Raptors. When something doesn’t work, change things up. A 15 point lead and you can’t win? Just plain awful.
Zero2Cool (15h) : Raptors played helluva good series. Bucks gotta adjust more. Use pick an roll. Good season, came short.
Nonstopdrivel (16h) : You let your opponent go on a 29-3 run in the third quarter, and you're not going to win many games in any league.
gbguy20 (16h) : welp
Nonstopdrivel (16h) : It's mind boggling that a professional basketball team could be so bad from the two-point range.
gbguy20 (17h) : the tides have turned
Nonstopdrivel (17h) : The only reason they're even in this game is because they're dominating on the boards.
Zero2Cool (18h) : They've tried last several possessions and missed three times.
Nonstopdrivel (18h) : It's obnoxious watching the Bucks refuse to play inside the arc.
gbguy20 (24-May) : the rocks career ascension since the 90s has been amazing
Zero2Cool (24-May) : IT DOESN'T MATTAH!!
Zero2Cool (24-May) : As The Rock would say ...
wpr (24-May) : we 3-4 or 4-3?
Zero2Cool (24-May) : yet, some are gonna ask we 3-4 or 4-3
Zero2Cool (24-May) : 2018 the league average for base personnel on defense fell all the way to 25%

gbguy20 (24-May) : solid
Nonstopdrivel (24-May) : Anyone going to get their butts in the chat room for this game?
TheKanataThrilla (24-May) : lol
gbguy20 (23-May) : Still no bye week listed Kevin. Don't you know what you are doing? young idiot
Zero2Cool (23-May) : Only thing I can guess is how Falcons used Taylor Gabriel.
Zero2Cool (23-May) : if anything, they like his open field ability and figure if they can get the ball to him in the flat from backfield = win
Zero2Cool (23-May) : More so thinking it is just not leaving any stone unturned.
Cheesey (23-May) : I’m not questioning you Zero, just trying to figure it out. Is Davis that good that they are trying so hard to find a spot where he can play?
Cheesey (23-May) : Why would they try a last ditch effort? I mean, if they have to try THAT hard, is he really worth it?
Zero2Cool (23-May) : Keep in mind the quick little fast guys that the Rams, Falcons used. They might see Trevor in that role.
Zero2Cool (23-May) : More than likely, this is a last ditch effort to find a spot for Trevor.
Cheesey (23-May) : I agree gbguy. He must have a relative in a high position on the Packers!
gbguy20 (22-May) : except ty was actually good (at both positions) where Trevor has never shown a reason to be on the 53. how he has been here for so long escapes me
wpr (22-May) : It's the Montgomery experiment all over again.
gbguy20 (22-May) : Trevor Davis practicing as a RB during OTAs. what the hell
Zero2Cool (22-May) : Folks usually say the series don't start until road team wins
TheKanataThrilla (22-May) : There was a stat that indicated that home crowd was most important in basketball of the big 4 sports. Not sure why.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : Raptors are simply better team top/down, and two of their main guys are hobbled.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : And didn't learn from past mistakes and lost Game 4.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : Bucks should have lost Game 1, got lucky. Dominated Game 2. Screwed up in Game 3.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : I don't think they are gonna make it to the Finals. No effort, no heart last night.
buckeyepackfan (22-May) : Don't panic Cheesey, series will go 7 games. NBA needs that to happen.
Cheesey (22-May) : Bucks stunk it up tonight. If they keep this up, they will be WATCHING the championship on TV.
TheKanataThrilla (22-May) : Congrats Blues. Stanley Cup bound.
gbguy20 (22-May) : i c u cheesey
Cheesey (21-May) : Yeah....would have been good “JU JU”! LOL!
Zero2Cool (21-May) : Should have taken JuJu Smith-Schuster instead of Josh Jones
Zero2Cool (21-May) : " So I think it's a good opportunity for those guys to get the bulk of the reps. I think everyone in here is comfortable what Davante is about."
Zero2Cool (21-May) : LaFleur says Davante Adams is present, but he did not practice: "Just precautionary, and ... we do have some young receivers. So I think it's a good opportunity for those guys to get the bulk of the r
