    We won't find out for about 2 months what the schedule will be. But here's my take at it:

    Monday, 09/09/13, @ Dallas, ESPN MNF Game-1
    Sunday, 09/15/13, vs Washington
    Sunday, 09/22/13, vs Atlanta, NBC Football Night in America
    Sunday, 09/29/13, @ Detroit
    Sunday, 10/06/13, @ Minnesota
    Sunday, 10/13/13, vs Philadelphia
    Sunday, 10/20/13, @ Chicago
    Sunday, 10/27/13, vs Pittsburgh, NBC Football Night in America, Super Bowl XLV Rematch
    Sunday, 11/03/13 BYE WEEK
    Thursday, 11/7/13, @ NY Giants, NFL Network
    Sunday, 11/17/13, vs Minnesota
    Sunday, 11/24/13, vs Cleveland
    Sunday, 12/01/13, @ San Francisco
    Sunday, 12/08/13, vs Detroit
    Sunday, 12/15/13, @ Cincinnati
    Monday, 12/23/13, @ Baltimore, ESPN MNF
    Sunday, 12/29/13, vs Chicago

    Very tough schedule here. I see 12-4 though because we are going to add some muscle to our defense, and we are due for a 49er type injury-free season. And I hope they have our 2012 injury luck in 2013. It's only fair.

    I give us the bye week before the Giants game, and give them an even shorter week making it a Thursday game. Giving our coaches extra time to prepare, and their coaches less time. Maybe we can finally beat those *******s.

    I see us going 8-0 at Lambeau. Our only loss could most likely come against Julio Jones and the Falcons, or possibly the Steelers. But I think Pittsburgh is fading.

    I see us going 4-4 on the road with some touch matchups. We're capable of beating anyone including the Super Bowl champs Ravens. Not sure about the 49ers, but again, those *******s are due for some heavy injuries like we had. Take out their safety, 2 ILBs, 1 OLB, and 2 of their 1st round pick OL and we'll see how good they are.

    ^ IDK man, I see that as one of the toughest schedules in the NFL, if not the toughest. I am being optimistic in my guess of 10 - 6 at best.

    IIRC nobody has ever had a bye week before a Thurs night game. Something in the CBA about a week off meaning a whole week.

    The schedule was supposed to be released NEXT week but I hear they are delaying it til the following week.

    At the Niners, Ravens, Giants, Cowboys............... plus vs Atlanta, Washington, Pittsburgh? That's gonna be tough.
    We need to toughen-up, get more physical.

    Can't wait for this one to come out, especially seeing when the Packers come back to Dallas.
    I remember the last time the Packers played at the Cowboys, it was 2007 when both teams were 10-1. I was there. The old stadium.
    Farve was hit patented self at Dallas throwing 2 bad interceptions. Then he exited with the sore elbow, down by 17 points.
    That's when we, and he world, got a real look at young Rodgers, and he was great. Almost brought us back.

    I remember the post-game handshakes, and Romo basically brushed off the backup QB Rodgers, thinking Aaron was just a punk and he was all that.

    That game was proof to the coaches that Rodgers was ready, and was why they were actually glad Farve was retiring after he choked away the NFCCG vs the Giants.

    Anyway, I hope the game at Dallas is in the 2nd half of the season. But not on Thanksgiving please.

    We might have caught a break there...the Ravens have decided to rebuild this year.

    I'm not sure why you're laughing, NorthWestCheeseHead. I guess you have not noticed the roster turnover in Baltimore, particularly on defense. Not sure how anybody could have missed that.

    I'm sorry. I meant it was funny because it made me laugh over the truth of the statement. Seemed like a witty quip. I didn't mean to imply that I thought it was untrue. Again, I apologize for the misunderstanding.

    And the year before that the Packers were considered unstoppable. Just one fluke game against the Giants. No reason the Packers can't beat the 9ers if the Pack can be at full health.

    In my mind one can't really use the 2011 season as a way to evidence anything. Mostly because it was just a strange season for the NFL. A lot of anomalous happenings affected every team that season. Plus that one fluke game vs the Giants very easily could have been two flukes, then of course there was the fluke game vs KC as well.

    I also think it is worth noting that the Packers under McCarthy characteristically play down/ up to the perception of their opponent for the week and buying into their own hype. Just look at the 09 wildcard game for a colorful example.

    On the up side we can stop the conjecture about the schedule in 2 days. WOOOOO! I'm quite interested to see how it actually falls on paper.

    Roster turnover for sure. There were additions along with the subtractions though.

    eh, I don't think they came close to replenishing what they lost though.

    Opponents and locations are based on a formula. They got no back to back road games and are at home at least every other week. I don't think they could have gotten it any easier considering the opponents. Timing of the bye and the turkey day game are the only things that weren't favorable but they have to play on a Thurs sometime.
