Way too early of an exercise but now that we know the order:

Week 1 vs PHI in Brazil...I see this as a serious toss up game.
Week 2 Home vs IND...Win
Week 3 Away vs TENN...Win
Week 4 Home vs MINN...Win
Week 5 Away vs RAMs...Loss
Week 6 Home vs ARI...Win
Week 7 Home vs HOU...tough but I'll say Win because home.
Week 8 Away vs JAX...Loss
Week 9 Home vs DET...Win

Week 10 BYE....I have us with 6 wins, two losses and one toss up. I'd say best case we are 7-2 and worst case 5-4...which is playoff and division hunt worthy for sure either way.

Week 11 Away vs CHI...Win, but in CHI is likely TOUGHER than past years...
Week 12 Home vs SF...Toss up game for sure...
Week 13 Home vs MIA...Win (hoping for poor weather)
Week 14 Away vs DET...Loss
Week 15 Away vs SEA...trap type Loss game I see
Week 16 Home vs NO...Win
Week 17 Away vs MINN...Loss
Week 18 Home vs CHI...Win

After Bye I see us with 4 wins, a toss up and three losses. Best case I see is 6-2 and worst real chance I see is 4-4

That puts me at best 13 wins and worst 9.

I understand big spread but still a lot of unknowns and of course health plays a factor, but if we are honest with ourselves no one would be blown away shocked to only win 9 or if this team puts up 13 either.

I think if I was placing a betting line on the over/under for the Packers this year it would be 10.5 Wins

Remember the team could have a final record equal to 2023 even if healthy. We have on paper a considerably tougher slate of opponents. Last season we had about 5 fledglings on the schedule and did not fare so well. We caught the Rams and Vikings with backup QBs in 2 wins and the Saints without their starter for most of the 2nd half. Be optimistic but realistic. Mike Holmgren's team from 92-94 was 9-7 each time. They got better but so did the opposition. It was not until 1995 that the team got to the next level going 11-5 and was in the NFC Championship.

I felt I was very honest, and truthfully if both toss ups and Bears steal one you could be staring down 9 wins at most...but that Texans game is also one I fear....if good weather that Texans offense can move the ball.

A massive thing is I don't view us as just a raw unexperienced offense I expect to sputter a ton out the gate this year.

I will be attending the Texan game this season as long as I am still in one piece.

Week 13 Home vs MIA...Win (hoping for poor weather)
Sunday game vs divisional opponent (usually a tough thing) then a 4 1/2 hour flight and game four days later. Not the easiest thing to pull off.
as long as I am still in one piece
Just buy more tickets.

9 to 13 wins is a likely range and while it's pretty wide, it's also pretty fair considering the strength of schedule and, as always, a lot of unknowns. The only single game I disagree - JAX. The Packers will beat this team on the road. Jax will be lucky to not finish at the bottom of the AFC South, no matter how much money they throw at TL.

The Athletic agrees with you, setting the over/under at 10.5 and taking the over.

This is a 10 win team. If they go over that, I'd be surprised. They could win their first round playoff game, but after that, I'm not convinced it will happen.

The whole thing that makes this so unpredictable is that we don't have a clue as to how well the new defense will actually come together, and we don't know how well Jacobs and Lloyd will adapt to the Packers running game. They could surprise us, and be an exceptionally good fit, and the defense could be lights out. It's so difficult figuring it out at this time. Gonna have to see them against competition, and that's not really going to be in the preseason.

I feel a little more optimistic than that. I expect at least some improvement over last season, so I'll be surprised if they win fewer than 10 and think 11 is a realistic possibility. And while I don't actually expect a Super Bowl appearance, I don't think it's an unreasonable hope, and I believe a NFCCG against the Niners is very possible. I'm actually going to put some money on that, in fact. I think they're one of the 4 teams most likely to make it, which would put the odds at 50-50.

I'm not worried about the defense. Of course it may take a while for them to gel in the new scheme, but even so, how much worse can they be than last year? And even if they do get off to a slow start, the key is how well they're playing by December, and I think they'll be clicking. I expect at least some improvement from van Ness and Wooden. I think Edge is going to have a very good rookie season, and if Stokes and Alexander can stay healthy, Valentine has improved as much as Lafleur says he has, and just half the DBs we drafted get off to a goood start, I think we'll do very well.

And the offense? They were one of the top offenses in the NFL last year, and I expect them to improve significantly.

For the first time in years, this team (aside from the kicker) has no holes - and only a couuple of spots where we may be thin. This seems to be the most complete roster I can remember seeing in many years, and by playoff time, I think they'll be playing well enough to go deep. Maybe not all the way, but I wouldn't be shocked.

Sounds like the addition of Jacobs and Lloyd on offense, and the overall play of the defense with new management and new players are your primary reasons for predicting a 10-win season, at best.

They might end up with 10 wins, but I don't think the RB situation or the changes on D will be the reason. Just my opinion, but those changes will improve the play of this team v 2023.

There are other reasons this may be a 10-win team - schedule, injury, improvement in the NFC North, the usual suspects. But I think Gluten and MLF have done an admirable job in addressing and updating areas of need on the team. I expect overall play to be better and more consistent than 2023. As far as wins, the over/under at the Athletic is 10.5. Like the Athletic, I'm taking the over.

Fair assessment. There is plenty of reason to be optimistic. They still gotta play the games of course, but I expect the offense won't miss a beat and the D will be significantly better (not a high bar). 11 wins sounds about right, as does a good showing in the playoffs. SB? Maybe.

Expectations are very high, or it seems that way. That's concerning, but hey, way better than the opposite.

Well going from 9 wins to 10 wins is very possible.

I'll go on record wih 14-3. Losses to Philly (opener on the road), SF & Detroit (away). MLF has them ready to kick butt heading into the playoffs as either the #1 or #2 seeds.

BOLD take. I like it. If Jordan loves plays like the way he did to end the season and the defense is better they could win a lot more games but they are gonna win games they shouldn’t and lose some they shouldn’t let’s hope Jordan love isn’t inconsistent I see us anywhere from 8-9 to 11-6 I don’t think we are gonna win more than 11 games max but I would love to be wrong

I agree and If I can piggy back on yours please?
9-8 this season would = the strength of a 11-6 team last year. I think this schedule is that much elevated.

If we Win 10 games or more? We should go deep into the playoffs. If we win 11 or more + the Division it’s our year to at least play in a SB. I just don’t see us losing a Divisional at home. Not with this Big, physical, wrecking crew at RB and TE and improved ST. We’re going to have plenty of resources at ST also with Keisean and Tyler Davis back, Eric Wilson back and all these talented Safeties and talented LB’s injected. I’m hoping our K is a little more consistent but I think that’s plausible also.
I think we are now at least arguably tied as the toughest division in the NFC. If we go 4-2 in the North or better

Opening games are often surprising. Teams are rusty from preseason although healthy. Other teams are still finding out who they are. Lombardi was 5-3-1 in openers while in GB.

I wouldn't be surprised if we are 3-3 in the division this season, splitting the series with each team. I expect to go 4-2 but that will be tough. I expect to split with Detroit. The Vikings should have their QB figured out by the time we play them at the end of the season in Minnesota, which will be tough. I think that we can beat the Bears twice, but it's similar to the Vikings with them. We play the Bears twice in the second half of the season, so Caleb Williams could have things figured out by then.

Our division is no slam dunk this season.

Obviously were here all wear slightly tinted glasses but I think as Packer fans we legitimately have good reason to be excited and it looks like many in the national media see it that way as well. If seen us ranked in the top 10 of strongest rosters.

We all know the Lions were one of the best all around teams last year and they drastically improved their weakest link in the secondary. They will be tough again this year.

I think the 2 biggest variables that will keep people from thinking the NFC North is the toughest division is the development of Williams and McCarthy. Obviously all rookies and even second year guys need further development but if your rookie QBs can get up to speed quickly it makes it all a lot easier. If McCarthy or Williams can pick it up like Stroud did last the vikings or the Bears could make some noise.

Niners are still the team to beat in the NFC. And even though we spoiled MM's season the Cowboys still are a strong force.

Yes. I do remember his first season he started awful. But once he got the ship righted he never looked back.

The Cowboys would like to do nothing more than spoil our playoff hopes this year. I think that loss was both embarrassing and hard to forget for Dallas.
That said, we obviously match up good with them. I think GB will actually be better this season than last. The ? is will Dallas be equally better? I’m going to say no.
Not trying to disrespect them. I think the game got out of control further. It happens to every team.
I just don’t think Dallas will improve as much as we do and plus, at Lambeau? I’d put my $$ on Jordan ;)
