Looking at our remaining schedule, we have our toughest games coming up this Sunday against BAL away, along with DAL away on Dec. 15th.

The Giants are always tough to beat on their own turf (Nov. 17th), and we do have the Falcons at Lambeau Dec. 8th. But, both of those teams look to be in complete disarray. Same for PIT (at Lambeau Dec. 22nd). And, we'll have to make sure we take care of Vick and PHI on our home turf Nov. 10th. The Vikings suck. The Bears suck. And, the Lions suck.

If we are able to hit it big these next 4 games, @BAL, CLE, @ MIN and CHI, maybe running the table is within our reach. We'll have to stay healthier than we have been, but our OL has played fairly well through the first 4 weeks and looks to be solidifying. I've got to say, I'm super impressed with David Bakhtiari. He has done an outstanding job, for a rookie, alongside Sitton protecting Rodgers' backside. Our RBs are looking pretty good, as are our WRs. Offensively, I think we are just starting to find our groove.

Defense is coming on, especially the DL, which should help our secondary who has been playing without arguably their best player from 2012, Casey Hayward. Get Hayward back, maybe have some younger players step up, and stay relatively healthy, and I can see us taking this season to the house 14-2, with an incredible run going into the playoffs.

This next game will be key. See how this team fares without Matthews. Will they regress, or will some of these players seize the opportunity to show their wares and help take us over the hump back to a winning record? If we beat BAL, and I think we very well could, this could get really interesting... I'm hoping, in a really good way!

Ah, something to think about. Just look at that schedule.

As of today, I would expect to lose 2 games, one in division and one out. But you never know. Gmen are on their normal cycle of being dog crap terrible where the are calling for the coaches head, only to win a SB and decline for a couple years until the coach is on the block again. So they could come out of no where.

Should still end up 11-5 10-6 at worst.

Our schedule is tough and our team in transition. It will be very difficult from here. I expect to be 10-6.

Even with Clay, this team shits itself.

But we tend to play up and down to the levels of our opponents.

Hell Yeah! The only tough game on the schedule after the Ravens is the Cowboy game.

I suppose we could slip up along the way, and I suppose some of those teams that don't look like much now could put it all together by the time we play them, and I suppose we could lose this week at Baltimore, but I'd estimate it's 60/40 in favor of running the table, maybe even 70/30.

I don't see how we shouldn't.

Steelers- 0-4?

Giants- 0-5

Falcons- 1-4

Vikings- 1-3

I'm Not afraid of the Lions even with Calvin Johnson

Browns are better but they aren't anything special on the road.

Not even scared of the Ravens..

The Bears defense isn't what it once was. they have lost almost all their top tier Defensive tackles which is huge. Peppers isn't even a factor anymore.

I hate to say it but I think the Cowboys are the only ones that are gonna give us fits because their offense is so good.

I think we can go on a run and go 12-4. WE CAN BE IN ANY GAME! We almost beat both of one the best of the teams in the AFC and NFC. We just have to finish games, and that's where our improved run game will come in.

As long as we get Casey Hayward back (hopefully this week) and Clay heals up that thumb and Hammy, we could be something. I really do.

Then again, we're better than the Bengals too.
