So without regard for the upcoming draft, OTAs, Training Camp, players signed, players cut, injuries, trades, weather or anything else that could impact the games, here’s the guaranteed earliest 2012 season prediction for the Packers.
Week 1-No way the Packers start the season with a loss (1-0)
Week 2-The Bears suck. Nuf said (2-0)
Week 3-Sorry Matt, your former teammates are not going to let you win this one (3-0)
Week 4-Best way to beat a bully is punch them in the mouth. Figuratively of course. (4-0)
Week 6-This hurts, but I think this is where the Packers lose their first. (5-1)
Week 7-This one will be tough, but Packers get back on the winning program (6-1)
Week 8-It’s Jacksonville. Do I need to go on? (7-1)
Week 9-If this game was in Arizona, I’d pick the Cardinals. Since it’s in Lambeau, I’ll say the Packers head into the bye with a win (8-1)
Week 10-Time for a nap (bye week, 8-1)
Week 11-Another tough game on the road. I’ll say a win, but its going to be tough (9-1)
Week 12-I hate the Giants. This game doesn’t help me hate them any less (9-2)
Week 13-Vikings will not be as easy of an opponent this year, but the Packers will win handily (10-2)
Week 14-Lions become kitties at Lambeau in December (11-2)
Week 15-I can’t pinpoint why I think the Packers will lose in Chicago, but I think it could happen. Which pisses me off. (11-3)
Week 16-Packers finish their home schedule with a win. (12-3)
Week 17-Heading strong into the playoffs (13-3)
I’m not going to predict the playoffs, since that’s impossible at this point. But a return trip to the Super Bowl is definitely achievable in 2012.
Wouldn’t winning 2 out of 3 Super Bowls be fabulous?
GO PACK GO!
