    Tough way to start the season, but at least we will have a mini bye going into Week 2.

    It’s a nice way to start the season, beating the Bears in Chicago.

    I love the early start. You have months to prepare for the big first game and starting earlier means a long rest for week 2. IF we win, an early jump on the division with them having to come to Lambeau later on.

    The only bad thing is that it's in Chicago. I take that as a bit of an affront, but at least we get them at home later in the season. Maybe we can take them by surprise with our new offense.

    There are lots of positives if we win and not many negatives even if we lose. I don't think anyone would give us anything more than a 50/50 chance of beating them in Chicago whenever we play them there and I'm guessing most realistic fans will have that game down as a loss anyway.

    1. Get them early when our best OL is healthy (hopefully Bulaga is still active at that point)
    2. Beat them down and take charge of the division from day one.
    3. Lead from start to finish.
    4. Get a bye in round 1
    5. Crush Tom Brady in the final game of his career.
    6. Bring home our 5th Lombardi.

    That's my plan


    To be honest though if we get #6 I won't really care what happens before that.

    I understand WHY the NFL did this BUT I wish it weren't happening.

    Brand new HC, brand new offense - hell, offenses don't usually click right out of training camp.

    I'd rather that the Pack didn't OPEN against the Bears in particular. That is too important of a divisional game too early in the coach's new tenure. Week 5 against the Bears would have been great.

    Get them early before Rodgers has a chance to get hurt also.

    I'm more than okay with it as long as A-Rod doesn't get himself injured again. Twice he's been injured in games against the Bears (Collarbone & Knee)

    I think it is great! Would like to block Mack in the first half this game.

    How about block him the whole game? Or and not that I wish ill harm to any player, but Mack comes down with a bad case of the stomach flu that day and doesn't suit up. ;)

    The Packers will play another Thursday game later during the season.

    Would have preferred an easier game to open with.

    Im fine with this, lets get it done and dusted.
    Like Sschind pointed out, the potential gains outweigh the losses. If we do lose, the urgency to perform already increases quite soon, hopefully making us more sharp and focussed for the next match with some extra days to prepare and review tape. Just pencil it in as a loss boys, with

    Not to mention we hopefully won't have to worry about playing on a short week the rest of the season. Unless they got us heading to Detroit or Dallas on Thanksgiving or something.

    There is no right or wrong time to play anyone, at least after what I saw last year this league isn't quite as simple as that.

    If we win, we'll have to remember it's still a long road ahead before Superbowl happens and have to make sure our new offense outlook is legitimate before jumping to conclusions. If we lose, no matter how ugly or bad it looks we gotta remember MLF's predecessor also opened his tenure here with an ugly opening day loss, but then ended up getting it together over the late course of that year and into the next, so .... Yeah, can't really call it sky high or death valley either way.
