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.

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.

@ Seahawks- There are still some pissed off Packers from the "touchception game" and one of those players is Aaron Rodgers. Win. 1-0.

vs Jets- They have a good defense but their offense is putrid. Their good defense can't stop the Packers great offense. Win. 2-0.

@ Lions- A shootout. Stafford effectively uses all the weapons added in the offseason. Lose. 2-1.

@ Bears- Packers come out dull from previous week's loss. Can't play catch up and barely lose. 2-2.

vs Vikings- Week 5 and Vikings go with a QB change. Enter Bridgewater. He has an awful game and Rodgers destroys Vikings defense. Win convincingly. 3-2.

@ Dolphins- Packers walk into Miami and take an easy win. 4-2.

vs Panthers- Panthers offense doesn't have enough power to keep up with Packers offense. Packers take this game and Rodgers has a career day. 5-2.

@ Saints- Too much offensive weapons for the Packers to handle. Back and forth game ending in a long Saints field goal to win in the final seconds. 5-3.

BYE- 5-3

vs Bears- Packers come back fresh from bye week and edge out a win. 6-3.

vs Eagles- Napoleon Dynamite has a terrible game and the Packers defense capitalizes on the turnover opportunities. Win convincingly. 7-3.

@ Vikings- Vikes still can't put it together. Try to lean on Peterson and doesn't work. Win. 8-3.

vs Patriots- Snow game puts a halt to this potential offensive shootout. Packers defense steps up and wins the game. 9-3.

vs Falcons- Falcons march into Lambeau and takes over with their offense. Julio Jones has an incredible game, catching everything his way. Lose. 9-4.

@ Bills- Packers bounce back from embarrassing loss to the Falcons. Make easy work of the Bills. 10-4.

@ Buccaneers- The McCown experiment hasn't worked out for Lovie's Bucs. Packers prevail. Win. 11-4.

vs Lions- Packers want the bye week. Keep their starters in and take the win. 12-4.



Now for my realistic prediction...Packers go 16-0, make light of every team in the playoffs and win the Lombardi. [aiee]

Each of those "losses" Yerko mentioned (possible exception of the Saints) I'm sitting here thinking "you got to be kidding". 16-0 really is a possibility. However, every team slips up occasionally. I'll go with 14-2, with no clue which 2 end up being losses. I'd bet against it being the Seahawks, though. Ditto for the Pats and also any of the division rivals. And I can't see Atlanta beating us either - Julio Jones is damaged goods, isn't he?

Of course, all of this is contingent on Aaron Rodgers not getting hurt. Just about any other injury or even combination of several, and I think we still go at least 14-2.

I usually go with 8-0 at home and 4-4 on the road, but 15-1 seems realistic this year.

The one loss could be the 1st away game of the seaon or it could be the last away game, I decided on the last.

To quote my co-founder of the dojo - we'll "shit ourselves" 3 games this year. This is going to make me feel real dirty inside and out, but I agree with Texas in that we have enough talent to run the table, 19-0 World Champions. Would love to see that mediocre ugly win Miami perfect team have that champaign cork shoved up their, well you know! But I'll settle for 16-3 World Champions.

I am not sure why anyone thinks Tampa Bay or Atlanta are going to be any good this year. Both will be better than last year but...

TB lost 3/5 of its O-Line and half its running game. They are still unsettled at QB and while the defense is certainly better, I am not afraid of a Tampa-2 defense, modified though it may be.

Atlanta still has no running game, no pass rush and a questionable secondary. Now they've lost one of their tackles from an already weak O-Line. They have a good QB and great receivers but no TE. We pantsed them when they were the best team in the NFC, and they aren't close to that now.

Miami looks a lot better than last year already...I think they are more of a worry.
