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.

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!!!

Last year taught me to never predict a season ever again. Sit back and get your popcorn ready.
