Looks like I'm guessing us going 12 - 4 and snagging the division again. Our home schedule looks pretty doable, but our road schedule looks wicked. Those road games will help prepare the team for the post-season.

Alright, let's see what you folks have!!

Mike's teams are never ready to start the season. Every year for the past decade except for 2014, the wheels have come off, and they have staggered backwards into the playoffs, if at all. Mike needs to get rid of that Schottenheimer influence and just have his guys ready every week.

Get home field advantage. Be ready. Try hard BEFORE week 10. Establish consistency.

For those of you who are crows (a reference to the Sisidea cartoon of the Thailand Wild Boars football team.) James Jones agrees with me.

JAMES JONES THINKS PACKERS ARE GOING 16-0

Quote:

The Green Bay Packers almost ran the table in the regular season in 2011. They finished 15-1 before getting exposed by the New York Giants in the playoffs.

James Jones was on that team.

Jones is now an analyst for NFL Network. And what does Jones think about the 2018 version of the Green Bay Packers? It appears he thinks they’re going to be pretty damn good.



There's a video but I can't link it

I am saying 7-9 as our o-line is exposed and the young secondary is thrown into the fire. Our offense will show the weakness at Wide out as Adams sees alot of double teams.

I honestly think our line will be ok. Look how well they did last year with no Ts. Plus we got Mercedes Lewis. I just worry about Davante. Teams are already head hunting him. Our WR corp could get exposed.

Agreed on both accounts.

The left side of the oline + center is top notch. Bulaga while recovering from injury is still here and should be fine for the 2nd half of the year. All they need is a right guard which is maybe the easiest position on offense to fill. Desperate they are not.

If one receiver not named Cobb or Adams steps up this offense will be really good.

Looks like I'm guessing us going 10 - 6 and splitting the division games. Though I was questioning weather to give the away loss in the Bears or Jets.

If you look at it via the season way, I got the Packers going streaking after the bye week.
4-2 before the bye.
0-2 after the bye.
4-0 following that.
0-2 again
2-0 into the playoffs.

If I recall, the schedule is real hard in the middle. A lot of games where we gotta travel coast to coast. That’s hard on a team. Try to just go .500 thru that stretch, then we’re at home most of the end of the season.

Problem is, to take advantage of this schedule, the team needs tobe ready early to win some games before that awkward road stretch. And we all know the likelihood of that.

If we need to run the table, or anything close to that, Mike is DONE.

Some scheduling points of note:

@Rams comes after the Packers bye week teams have a higher win percentage following a bye, so I have some hope there

@Seahawks is a Thursday game going from gb to Seattle on 4 days rest...wont be easy.

@Vikings following Seattle Packers get the mini bye 10 days rest, might make a difference.

We'll need the extra rest against the Vikings.

Yeah, I don't think there is any huge complaints in the schedule... the biggest problem is back to back good teams, opposite coast road games in Rams (west coast) and then Patriots East coast (then back to the west coast a week and a half later for a Thursday night game, but a home game sorta breaks that up)... AND there is no playing a team coming off a bye and not even a game after a Monday night game.

Agree, other than the Mike is done part which is probably wrong. But point being they're going to have to do decent with that first stretch of games because the middle is tougher part with Rams, Patriots, Vikings and in Seattle noisy stadium.

The Seahawks lost lots of players, haven't they?
Kam Chancellor, Richard Sherman, Michael Bennett, Luke Wilson, Cliff Avril, Sheldon Richardson, Jimmy Graham, Paul Richardson, to name a few. They lost Bruce Irvin a year or so earlier too.

I'm not really ready to fear the Seahawks just yet.

I think the Seahawks' defense took a clear hit... but on the offensive side of the ball MIGHT have gotten a lot better, with a 1st round RB and a serious upgrade to their OL (sorta started last year but still growing together) and a blocking TE.... if you can get a running game going with Russel Wilson, you can be tough because defenders will have to chase both a physical power RB/running game and chase Wilson around.

And while losing Richardson and Graham will hurt the passing attack... they want to be a run first team, and having to chase both a running game and Russel Wilson will be tough... and they signed Brandon Marshall and Jaron Brown... which you can't count on to be healthy, but when healthy, might be just as equally good or better fits as Richardson and Graham. (Graham is a bad fit at TE for a run first team... I'm still surprised they didn't use him like a WR more often in that offense and get a blocking TE).

But it's going to be interesting to see how Richard Sherman does without Earl Thomas and how Earl Thomas does with a brand new crew around him....

2011 started 13-0
2012 started 5-3(R E L A 😵
2013 started 5-2
2014 started 5-2
2015 started 6-0
2016 started 4-3(Run The Table)
2017 started 4-1

I agree The Packers schedule looks to have a tough 4 game stretch in the middle, but who knows what it will look like by week 8.

Not sure why the question of Mike not having the team ready to play keeps coming up.

Since 2012(new cba) the practice restrictions have created havoc across The NFL.

Preseason games have become meaningless to established veterans.
To much injury risk involved.

Mike & Co. Has had The Packers prepared as well or better than anyone else.

Would be nice if they started 6-0, But I'm not going to blame lack of preparation if they happen to lose 1 0r 2.
Shit sometimes happens that is beyond the coaches control.
