What will the Packers' record be this year and why? And if they make the playoffs, how far will they go?

Well if the preseason under our belts, I think a couple of things stand out.

1. Rodgers will do fine at QB, sure there will be growing pains, but in the end he will get the job done. If he goes down with injury or the aforementioned prediction fails to hold true.. then I think it is going to be a long season. Backups could flop or shine.. but we won't know that until the lights go on.

2. The unit the I felt the most comfortable in the offseason about, seems to be one of two of my biggest concerns currently.. more so with depth questions surrounding the DL and CB positions. Especially Dline. If we don't get healthy soon, it could be a year of challenge of looking under every stone for a couple of guys to step in on the line. But in the end, I have faith in the return of KGB and Pickett, and I honestly think Harrell will be able to help us the second half.

3. That second concern mentioned above.. OLine. Here I don't have as much comfort that it will become consistent yet this year. We will once again shuffle guys around on the interior and we have razor thin depth at Tackle. When Moll and Colledge are your primary depth guys at Tackle.. it isn't a pretty picture. Neither has become consistent with their play to date.. Colledge seems to have regressed if anything. This will be our trouble spot yet again.

4. I think the schedule is a little tougher on paper going into this year vs last.. but every schedule is full of teams that can play and I discount that a bit.

So in the end, I don't think we match last seasons record but in the end we should be a playoff team if we can stay fairly healthy. 10-6 or so.. But still be very solid team overall, we should challenge in the playoffs.

I looked around and couldn't find a thread on this topic. I forgot about that one. I never make predictions until after the preseason is over anyway.

More the why then the plain prediction.. both will be pulled up for future reference I am sure.. the real difference I hope is in the why explanations.

Add to it.. it wasn't start by some gent named Slic.. errr... Zero2Cool. :lol:

11-5. i won't make a playoff prediction.... too many variables. i think we have the talent to go deep into the playoffs, but who knows if we'll be able to put it all together this season.

Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.

Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
