I'm sure someone already started this thread, but I must be using the wrong search queries. I can't find it.

So, since most everyone (save me and uffda, apparently) is in the usual post-draft glow of optimism, let me start with my own pessimistic prediction:

Seahawks. Lose 0-1.
Jets. Win. 1-1.
Lions. Packerdom shocked. Loss. 1-2.
Bears. Packerdom shocked again, as GB opens 0-3 on the road. Loss. 1-3.
Vikings. Poor purple. Angry Packers blow them away. Win 2-3.
Dolphins. Finally a road win. 3-3.
Panthers. Three in a row. Win. 4-3.
Saints. Crap. More road woes. Shootout, but New Orleans has ball last. Loss. 4-4.
Bye. Still 4-4.
Bears. Revenge, part I. 5-4.
Eagles. Well, that was fun. Another two game win streak. 6-4.
Vikings. Avoid the ignominy of home and home across the division. Barely. Win. 7-4.
Patriots. Rodgers outplays Brady just as he outplayed Brees earlier. Unfortunately, the defense played as badly as they did against New Orleans, too. Loss 7-5
Falcons. Rodgers has a bad game, for him, throwing just one TD and 2 INTs. Loss. 7-6
Bills. Another road win as Crosby hits winning FG despite lake effect semi-blizzard. Win 8-6
Buccaneers. Another road loss, bringing year's road record to 3-5 and the overall record to 8-7.
Lions. Win the final wild card seed in the most unlikely of ways, a tie. Final record 8-7-1, despite fewer games lost to injury than any year in the Thompson/McCarthy era.

Wildcard game: Whoever it is, its on the road. This year that means loss.

It of course all was because of the bad calls by the officials.

15-1, lose to the Bills because that's the only thing that makes sense.

I see 4-2 in the division, splitting with the Lions and Bears.
2-0 in 1st place games. I think the improved defense opening the year with Seattle without half of them on IR and the new running game will be a big surprise to the Seahawks and the Eagles will have been figured out by now.

Against the NFC South I think we lose to the Saints on the road and beat everyone else.

Against the AFC East I think we slip up once...maybe to Miami or New England but not both.

I see 12-4 and a bye. Barring injury issues (always a big question) I see going to the Super Bowl this year and taking on Denver.

Can I argue about the one's I've seen? Smile

I don't know what it is, but I just bristle every time I see someone predict a loss vs. Carolina. I'm not a gambler but I feel like I should bet everything I own on that game as for some reason I feel like it's impossible they lose to them.

You can bust other peoples balls on their prediction when YOU have the balls to publicize your own prediction! MAN UP!!! [grin1]

I'll say it again, 19-0, and we win another Lombardi Trophy.

Is that crazy? I guess anyone could say that, but this is a simple prediction thread in a forum, and who cares, or is to really know better with certainty?

We are due to come up on the right side of the injury ledger for a change. That consideration, which is paramount IMO, coupled with some sweeping changes on D in both approach and personnel upgrades, along with what I see as being one of the most potent offenses in the NFL makes me think it is indeed possible.

This is one of the most talented teams we have ever put onto the field in GB since 1996-1997, as I see it now.

Is 19-0 probable? Oh, hell no. Not when every single divisional game is a toss up, we start the season in SEA against the defending champs, and we see very tough matches against PHI, NE, NO and ATL. There are also the trap games against lesser foes that can bite us in the ass.

But, for now, just for the hell of it, I'll stick with an undefeated season. Nothing to really lose.

Yeah, what he said.

Undoubtedly the Packers will slip up and lose a game or two even if they stay healthy, but I honestly would not/could not predict against them in ANY individual game, and that includes at Seattle in Week One.

Ok, Zero with gun to my head...

Packers go 8-0 at home.

Packers go 4-4 on road with losses to: Detroit, Tampa, Miami, New Orleans

(Could see us beating Detroit and losing to Seattle leaving us still at 4-4 on road)

Remember that Jets game a few years ago that was a huge defensive battle and it ended like 9-0 in favor of the Packers? That's how I see the Carolina game playing out for some reason.

The Packers have great difficulty with mobile QB's. Cam Newton is mobile. It won't be a defensive battle. lol

Well they have trouble with "A" mobile QB. Carolina doesn't really have a very scary looking offense right now though, most of their OL retired and their WRs are Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant, and a rookie. On top of that they also lost pretty much their whole starting secondary from last year. Put me in the group with the people who aren't very scared of Carolina.
