I won't post any links or whatever, since the schedule is right here on the screen beside where I'm typing/reading - Thank You Kevin for that.

I'm struggling with my addiction - picking the Packers to go 16-0 every year. I'm sitting here trying to figure out exactly WHEN/WHERE any losses are gonna come.

Yeah, the opener is gonna be tough, but first game, everybody fired up, barring any colossal blunders by officials like last time, I just can't see the Packers going into Seattle and losing. October 26 at New Orleans? It could happen, but I really think the Packers are the better team, and barring something horrendous and unusual, we should win that one too. At Detroit and Chicago consecutively early? Come on, does anybody among us really want to pick against the Packers in those games? At home against the Patriots in late November? This is my candidate, maybe, for the most likely to lose, but no way I would predict a Packer loss to anybody at home - assuming Aaron Rodgers stays healthy.

So where are the losses?

Three out of Four road games to start is a tough haul. No way they top the Seahawks unless they lost their hunger.
Seahawks
Panthers
Saints
Eagles
Patriots
Buccaneers

I see those as losses.

The Seahawks at their own stadium is a tough match-up. One we could win, I think, but it won't be easy.

I don't see any games we really have to lose, but I'm 50/50 on about half the schedule.

@ Seattle
@ Detroit
@ Chicago
Carolina
@ New Orleans
Chicago
Philadelphia
New England
Atlanta

So, let's take half of those games. That's 4,5 losses... Then tack on another fluke loss, which is bound to happen once, against a team like the Bills or throwing away the last game against Detroit.

That'd net us 5,5 losses. 11-5/10-6 sounds like a pretty realistic record for this team, in my eyes. There's still the draft coming up, injures (in TC) and what not, so a whole lot can still change between now and the start of the season.

11-5.
Seattle, Detroit and Chicago away.
Patriots and Philly at home.

I usually go with the old adage "win at home, split on the road"

Tha'ts 12-4, this year at this time, the road games The Packers have the best chance of losing are Seattle, Detroit and N'Orleans.

Packers take care of business at home, that would be 13-3.

5 of the last 8 at home, @ Vikings, Bills and Bucs....good chance Packers can run the table.

Looking for 5-3 or better the 1st 8 games!!!

It's not the regular season I'm worried about.

1: Stay healthy.

2: Get into the playoffs.

"WHERE ARE THE LOSSES?"

PROBABLY NEAR THE CAPS LOCK KEY!

Maybe 3 losses (@Seahawks, Patriots, @Saints--in that order of difficulty).

The schedule looks very favorable and I wouldn't be surprised if we went 14-2 (beat the Saints) or 15-1 (beat the Patriots & Saints).

Of course, a lot depends on injuries (particularly AR's).

Staying healthy is a huge factor in the Packers season.
Getting into the playoffs all depends on how they finish out the season

I'll predict an 13-3 season with all losses coming on the road.

Which 3? The one that kinda scares me is the Buffalo game. There is always one game.

No way do the Pack lose to the Cheatriots. I'll take any bets

The Saints game could be a legit loss depending on how bad they beat the Panthers the week before.

This could be the year that the Pack bring back the Lambeau mystique as it has not really been there in a long time. Teams know that they can win there, which really sucks.

Week 1 will definitely tell us a lot on how good the Pack is. Especially if the head coach calls a decent game. Just wish McCarthy got rid of the clipboard and let the OC call the plays.

It looks like 10-6 to me.

@Seattle
NewEngland

Are games where we can probably be serious underdogs.

And then we might get a couple of disasters and lose a couple of close games.

I think the Packers are an 11-14 win team.

They are due to lose in Chicago. I also think Minnesota could be better than people think if they draft the right quarterback.

I have problems trying to agree with a single word of this LOL

11-14 I don't think so we would have to play San Francisco 14 times and that's not very likely.

Losing in Chicago?

Minnesota a good team? <= LOL

Minnesota drafting the right qb <==== ROFL!

Every year, the Packers (and several other teams) lose to a team they should probably beat. The Vikings reek of that team this year. They have used five first-round picks in two years. Harrison Smith, Matt Kalil and Xavier Rhodes are all very good. If Sharrif Floyd and Cordarrelle Patterson develop along with a quarterback, then I think they have more upside than Detroit and Chicago. In fact, they’re a quarterback away from contending. Rumors link Minnesota to Zach Mettenberger and Teddy Bridgewater. I think both are good fits for them. Of course, the issue is that once they finally develop a quarterback, Adrian Peterson may no longer be the player we’re accustom to facing. Still, I wouldn't underestimate them.

The two games that have the greatest loss potential are @ Seattle and @ Tampa.

Tampa has been a tough place for Aaron and throw in the fact that Lovie is now there and his ability to slow down Rodgers over the years, I see that as a very tough game for Green Bay.

I actually believe Seattle is the easier of the two games as there will be full focus on beating the SB Champs. We don't have the same "we're owned" mentallity by Seattle that we do for San Francisco. Mike McCarthy said last night they're going to Seattle to "kick ass". Love the bravado.

Hard for me to think we "should lose" any of the remaining games on the schedule. @ New Orleans isn't an easy one, for sure, but Aaron loves playing in his comfortable shoes in domes.

The one game that I think is a gimme that I've seen a lot of people think is a loss is home vs. Carolina. The Panthers have no WR's. It burned me we lost late to the Niners because I think the Packers would've lit the Panthers up in Carolina. I feel the same coming at Lambeau...Green Bay is going to roll the Panthers.

Also for Carolina half their OL retired and they lost basically their whole starting secondary. That's a significantly different team this coming season than they were last year.
