This is one of my favorite times of the NFL season. Now that all the results are in I go back and look at all the “experts” and their amazing predictions.

At first, I felt down because I pegged the Packers for 11-5. So in fairness I was wrong by 2 games. A few notables were CBS sports which predicted a 9-7 win/loss record. They also made a “bold” prediction that No Team would win double digits in the division. They did have the Packers winning the division title. However, the amazing prognosticators at CBS had the Dallas Cowboys winning the NFC Championship AND beating the Chiefs to win the Super Bowl! Yeah right, YIKES! Talk about an iced cold take.


Here you can read about Sporting News predicting the 4 game Packer “regression” (media talking point for Packers 2020!) finishing a disappointing 9-7 in second place behind the Vikes!


Hats off to Sports Illustrated they were closer to reality at 10-6. At least we still won the division!


Always fun to look back. Go Pack Go!

Hi NY! yep, i admit myself tending to over-analyze; i too had them @ 11-5, or pushing that to an even dozen. I had them losing to the 'aints, the colts and the Ners and finally losing a divisional game. I have been "preaching" MM is gone.....and, still consider him the basic reason, Mr. Rodgers hasn't been given the opportunity to play in more than 1 SB. I'm still attempting to get thru this, but in just watching MM attempt to use his system in Dallas shows he loses locker rooms (may be his undoing).
Watching/listening to the offensive play schemes/call with MLF has been a breath of fresh air....i no longer have to toss a tantrum if the Packers bring in a big package on 3rd/4th and 1 only to see them fail about 75%+ times since it was so predictable. I share the only doubt is play calling on 2nd and short, which happened at least twice against the bears, but other times as well. It's rather brilliant is seems when they break the huddle to show defenses the same look but it's designed to go RPO. Lastly, MM had no clue how to use TE's, which for most fans they've figured out (look @ what both Lewis & Tonyan have done, much less the new guy Dabney).
The only team i fear GB playing in round 2 is TB and if everything follows the seeding, that's likely to happen. Rams and the Bears should lose...which puts the "byed" Packers playing the worst seeded team (5) after the first weekend.

A small nit. A super chat asked about kick return and you responded talking about Tavon Austin who only returns punts, The only two good things about our kick-off return game is that Malik catches the ball and the opportunities are few and far between.

Kevin King needs to learn how to tackle. Also, he need to play closer to the line of scrimmage, not 10 yards off.

Kevin king doesn’t tackle he shoulders great way to not tackle someone and or have a significant shoulder/‘ collarbone injury or severe concussion
They should sit him or pull him immediately after that bullshit
It’s been going on all season.....he doesn’t listen or learn
I’m fine with trading him feb 8th

The shame is that a lot of the criticism about Kevin is racially motivated, as evidenced here by the "he doesn't listen or learn" dog whistle language. You would never say that about a white player.
