No. darknessrules asked for bold predictions, but I won't complain if our games play out that way! That's pretty funny stuff...

With a renewed, or better yet, NEW emphasis on the run, I feel our OL will become more proficient run blockers, and our new RBs Lacy and Franklin have the potential to be 1000 yd backs.

The added running game will open up far more opportunities for Rodgers and our WRs.

A real pass rush added to a ball hawk secondary will give our offense far more opportunities to make plays. We should get up big on teams this season, and we should be able to close games out with the run like Levens & Bennett used to do.

We are one year removed from going 15-1. Going undefeated with what I believe to be a better overall team now will not be foreign territory for many of these players and coaches. If we roll the way I think we can roll, this is entirely possible.

Somebody has to knock off the '72 Fish. Why not us?

As for Charles Johnson, we have 4 players cut from very similar moulds vying for 2 spots. This kid's gotta get outta the tub!

How many yards do our WRs usually get? Well we just lost two of them, so that's plenty more catches for the top three. These guys ALL have the ability to get YAC. Cobb, JJ, Jordy. You kdding me?

Now for the RBs. 1000 yards isn't what it used to be. It's much more common than say, during the 12 game season era. But think about it this way. You didn't specify 1000 yards RUSHING. These RBs can all catch passes out of the backfield, they can all make one guy miss, and they can all take it to the house. Not to mention Franklin might be used on kickoffs. That's an easy 40-60 yards/game right there, all-purpose.

As for the INTs, yeah, we lost Charles. But that also means fewer penalties. Look at the DBs we've got back there. If McMillian steps up to be legit, even if he's not super special (which he DOES have the potential for, make no mistake.) these CBs can lock down the entire field. All they'll need is a little pass rush, which hopefully will be coming, via Datone Jones, Nick Perry and the boys.

This is a very good team, and I honestly do believe they are even better than they were last year. Certainly they are better than they were two and yes, even three years ago.

Since they played so much nickel, Woodson was playing CB a lot when he was healthy. When he wasn't, Hayward was playing there and he managed to get a lot of picks. Allowing passers a 23.7 rating when his guy was targeted. I would say that Hayward is an upgrade over Woodson at this point.
I want to go out like my Grandpa did. Peacefully in his sleep.

Not screaming in terror like his passengers.
