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? :)

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.

uffda udfa (8m) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (9m) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (15m) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (1h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (1h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (1h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (4h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (5h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (5h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (5h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (5h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (7h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (7h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (7h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (8h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (8h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (9h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (9h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (9h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (9h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (10h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (10h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (10h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (10h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (10h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (12h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (15h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (21h) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite GM candidate... Wolf or Gutekunst?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : I'd rather sit them than play them too compromised.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Yeah, Z. More pressure cooker talk and smoked turkeys.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : If this were a regular-season game, Nelson, Adams and Allison probably would not play, MM says.
