  1. Four prime time games, Thanksgiving against Detroit, no back-to-back away games, and a Week 4 bye will make this an interesting year.

  2. Second half of the season looks tough. First half not so bad overall, though the first game (49ers away)is a good test for the 2013 version of the Packers.

    The week four bye week is just horrible, I’d much rather it was later in the season, like a week before Atlanta or Pittsburgh. That would have been much more friendly.

    1. They might only have to really worry about the read option in the first two weeks, too, with SF and WAS. Not bad from a coaching/planning standpoint.

  3. Tough schedule. ..IF we dodge the injury bug this year, IF our injured players from last year come back 100%, IF we draft some starters, IF some of our young guys develop into contributers. ..we go 12-5 to 10-6. IF not, anywhere from 9-7 to 7-9?

    What do you guys think?

    1. As I’ve said eleventy hundred times before, the injury situation relates to scheduling and the strength/conditioning staff.

      Look at the Niners’ extremely low injury #s last year and tell me it’s not related to their cutting edge nutrition/rehab/conditioning program.

      The Packers have neglected addressing this area for far too long now.

      1. This only really pertains to non-contact injuries, like muscle strains, pulls and tears. Broken bones and torn ACLs don’t have a lot to do with nutrition, rehab and conditioning.

        That’s the luck side of things.

    2. I think your crazy! I don’t see any reason we don’t go 11-5, injuries or not. Only really tough games might be 9ers away, Balt away and NYG away. NFCE isn’t scaring me, and to be honest neither is AFCN.

      I HATE the bye week in wk 4. Always better if mid season. We’ll just be hitting our stride and getting into the rhythm of the weekly schedule and get hit w/ a bye. Only way that’s good is if we have a lot of training camp or early season minor injuries that need to heal.

      1. I agree with Stroh on this! If ARod stays healthy the team goes 11-5 with the current players that won the division last year. Another year of experience under their belts with OTA’s will see improvement everywhere.

        Add in a few good players from draft and FA and this team is cooking with gas, for the next five years.

        1. huh? The other 31 teams will also have OTA’s, bring in players from the draft and free agency as well.

        2. See…I get poo-poohed when I talk about the backup QB, but everyone here couches there statements on the health of ARod. What does that say? #feelingvindicated

      2. Well I hope your right because the Giants and the 49ers showed the rest of the NFL all they needed to know to beat the Packers. Punch them in the mouth and they wilt. Physical teams, teams that are strong up front give the Packers fits. One other thing. The Packers are supposed to be a draft and develop team. Thompson has hit on 2 picks in two years, Cobb and Hayward. Who knows maybe Sherrod can come back. Maybe Perry won’t look completely lost like last year. Perry sucked so bad last year that Waldon was actually cutting into his snaps. Waldon!!! Personally I don’t think the experience will make that big of difference. If they play like they did last year against the Giants and 49ers, this team go’s 8-8 or 9-7 at best playing that schedule. Then can we stop all the “In Ted we trust”?

    3. Dan, I get what you’re saying. There are a lot of conditional statements that’ll predict the Pack’s fortunes this year.

      If the line learns how to block.
      If the defense learns how to tackle.
      If AR stays vertical.
      If the training room stays empty.
      If CM3 doesn’t blow a hammy.

      Pretty much like every year, eh?

      1. Very true, but even with the training room full, the Packers have won 10+ games. If AR is in the training room, it becomes a lost season.

        All I’ll say is that with the Bears retooling, the Packers should win the division. That’s the ticket to the playoffs, and that’s all I care about.

  4. Dolphin’s and Bears, non playoff teams last year, 2 Monday night games. Packers only one? All though the Pack is tied for first with 5 overall prime time games.

    1. Dolphins were no pushover a year ago, but the Bears are in a retooling (I won’t say rebuilding) mode.

  5. Probably going to the Dallas game. Wish it was in oct/nov instead of Dec and close to Christmas.

  6. I bet ARod is thrilled with the December 29th game in Chicago. He hates playing that one late in the year with the weather and all.

    Wish the Detroit game after the bye was on the road instead of GB. The Pack always does well with the extra time off and I think would have made the two Lions games easier.

    I think the Bengals game will be tougher than the Ravens. The Steelers might be out of it by the time we play them. They should struggle this year.

    The November 17th game will be important for the Packers as it will give them a chance to get accustomed the venue they’ll be playing in on February 2, 2014.

  7. Every year I get so disappointed. I always look forward to a warm weather team come to Lambeau in December….but seems always that NFL schedulers have a soft spot the texas, ca and florida teams.
    Maybe next year.

  8. Seeing this schedule; i am no longer fan of trade downs. I hate to say it…but I would draft to beat the likes of SF and the mobile quarterbacks. Vick, Kaepernick, Griffin. I hope Thompson goes strong in defense again with first 3 picks. I think GB defense is 2 playmakers away from having the whole D unit play as top 5 defense: laser pursuing ILB, disruptive DT. A strong safety would be great of course…but still the problems up front and ILB have a ripple affect. Ok…then maybe 3 players away from a great defense; get top ILB, DT, Safety in first 3 picks. I’d rather see fewer # of picks, and go for premium consensus higher picks. Get this D solidified and set as a core for the next 3 years. I don’t care who is drafted for OL, RB in rnds 4-7. Any RB and OL pick is not likely to make big impact this year. Next year go for high OL, TE and receivers. Investment in D this year makes the difference in 3 wins; Atlanta, Washington, Minnesota (i think they’ll be v tough next year). And gives GB a chance at SF. I see a 10-6 season. If strong draft on d, could be 12-4.

    1. This team is not a team you draft for this year with. There’s a lot of youth…a lot of long term upside, and ARod will be around for awhile.

      If, in today’s NFL, you’re in a spot where you need to draft for now, you’ve built your team wrong.

  9. With our strength and conditioning coaches we could have 8 bye weeks and still be the walking wounded…

  10. 1) This looks like a tough schedule to me, quite frankly. One of the toughest I’ve seen in a number of years.

    2) On injuries and our training staff: Our S&C coach has been the understudy of two legendary S&C coaches (Rock and Redman) who pretty much created the position in the NFL and have been honored as the top dogs in training. They are both going in as HOF strength and conditioning coaches. If there is an issue with injuries beyond “shitty luck” I personally think it’s more likely to end up being something with playing on a DD Grassmaster playing surface in our Green Bay, WI climate than being related to poor training habits. (I’m just making a statement on how strongly I feel about the Packers training methods- I don’t have reason to believe the injuries are field related).

    To whomever commented on SF’s diet, what makes you think the Packers’ nutritionist is sub-par? Have there been comments from players or doctors that their diet is lacking?

    To the best of my knowledge, and from comments from players themselves, the Packers spare no expense when it comes to the health, training, and general maintenance of their players. This extends to training equipment and resources, player health programs, etc and so forth.
