No way the packers win the North , sweeping the North teams is out of the question.

I remember a lot of people saying the same thing last year. That there was no chance they could win each week. And they somehow found ways to win 13 times last season. And then they somehow found a way to beat the Seahawks in the playoffs. They lost 4 games total last year, and so many people act like they only won 4 games. Craziness.

You mean like how they did both last year?
Name me one NFC North opponent that got better this past off season.

Yeah, but Detroit has found so many ways to underachieve over such a long period of time that they’re experts at it by now.

Chicago clearly looks improved. They were 4-2 in the division, #4 in defense and #29 on offense. Net passing yards per attempt was the worst in the league. So they got a better QB in Foles. They added some good players to a defense that was already better than ours. Considering the close games they lost last year....I think they’re a 10 win team.

Minnesota, IMO, has not kept pace. Drafting guys is one thing, but they lost a lot of starters this offseason. They’re going to open with two rookie corners against Rodgers and Adams? That’s the plan?

“So they got a better QB in Foles”. An old cliche seems apt: when you have two QBs, you have none. Which is redundant; the Bears haven’t had a QB since Sid Luckman. It’s where QB careers go to die.

Vikings had a much better draft, a good corner , O tackle , receiver , linebacker so don’t say they didn’t improve as much as I hate to admit it.

Winning the North is as always the goal. Sweeping the Division two years in a row s near impossible. Still the goal to win. This Packers team is going to win some games. How many do they win I’m hopeful to see.

"Winning the North is as always the goal."

If you believe this, then you cheer failure.

Winning the SB is as always the goal, period.

I believe it, and I resent you saying I cheer failure. Winning the division gets you in the playoffs with a chance to win the Super Bowl.

Packers will sweep the division again because they are even better than last year. Packers dominated the Vikings. In fact I think the Vikings only had 7 first downs in the second game. I really think the Packers are going to sweep the division again.

I don't know about a sweep, but I do see the Pack winning the NFC North again. The Vikings got worse - yes, I know they had a great draft but they lost almost their entire secondary, two of their best D-linemen and their best wide receiver. You don't replace all those losses even with a great draft. The Bears did not get materially better and the Lions are still the Lions. The Pack didn't get worse and I believe that will be enough to win the division.

I think the Packers will sweep the NFCN, again. The only team I worry about upsetting our sweep is Detroit. Detroit always plays us tough and should have beaten us last season, at least once. Thank you Mason Crosby for that dagger!

Detroit is improved and Stafford is a dominate QB...This series may result in the split, if Stafford stays upright.

If the Vikings had a great draft, they will be rookie heavy. As has been discussed ad nauseam, that alone tends to mean that success is likely to be delyed. Reality suggests that they will have a sprinkling of Treadwells in there too. How many will likely define success not numbers. Replacing talent by the draft is a lottery.

The Lions did not obviously move forward or back to me.

The Bears draft may have no impact at all given that they basically sat out the top third. Their off season included signing Graham to bolster their offense. So that leaves Foles. Their QB situation could be an all out disaster. If Foles starts, they will be better as long as he can stay healthy, but that’s not guaranteed. However, when your central offensive acquisition is Jimmy Graham, I wonder how much better.

In my view this season hinges on how well the system transition takes and how well the new system performs. I see this as a season likely to be defined more by deveopments here than Elsewhere in the division.

"The Lions did not obviously move forward or back to me."

The Lions added pieces, but they annually find ways to underachieve.

Make or break year for Matt Patricia and Dan Quinn.

Referring to a previous article, if there was ever a franchise that needed someone like Ron Wolf, this is it. Gotta shake things out and try a more dynamic approach....

They let Slay go for Trufant and draft Okudah. They want to run the ball more with Patricia at the helm. Black and Blue division is going retro.

Packers are still the team to beat, AR is still our qb1, and defense will improve. Law of averages and injuries will catch up to a degree. I feel we already have more depth than LY.
That said, ten or eleven wins will top the division.

Nags! you still bring it and in this episode thought you had some great personnel questions: Williams, jackson, Hester, etc. Loved your comment about the click bait and this media campaign about rodgers (Packers seemingly throw in the towel on Super Bowl hopes) in a latest MSN article) is utter non-sense. When you repeatedly say, CHTV is here for you, that is so true and most of us get that you are entirely Bias about the Green Bay Packers. I am adamant in my devoted admiration of the organization and believe that GB is TRULY AMERICA'S TEAM.

None of us know, if this particularly (seemingly) odd draft will pan out and most knowledgable fans are curious if the first Gutey draft of 18' will ultimately end up being less than average, but we're cautiously optimistic about last years' draft prospects as they crawl into their second year in the NFL. It appears that Jenkins & Savage are "A" picks, Sterny is on the cuspit of his young talents (the potential of him is the fact that he has a HC that knows how to use TE's better) and lastly the emerging possibilites for both Keke & Holman are there as well. Mr. Rashad Gary is an incomplete, but i'll give him at least what GB has given Burks, and yes they have invested dearly in both.

Nags, it was a nifty point you made about the hard charging Zack Smith being sat down by the NFL for a couple of games potentially, WHICH would give Gary a straight away starting chance. Will the fan who doubts Hester playing eat your britches when he ends up playing this coming season? Again folks, Gutey working EVERY DAY to improve the roster and i pray he also takes the opportunity to cut bait (be rid of non contributors) prior to the season kickoff. He has shown he's not affraid to lossen up cap space from moving on from has beens.

Our most difficult division game is probably the opener. If we win that, we could possibly sweep the division.

Bears will be better than last year. Vikings might regress a little. Detroit, as usual, is irrelevant.
