    Pack should win Cleve, Vikes, Tampa, SF, Lions, Seattle,
    Could lose @Chicago, @Pitt, @ Arizona
    I think they have real chance against Dallas and Baltimore @ Lambeau,
    We win 2 out of the last 5 listed (prob Dallas & Az) that's 10/6. Opinions?:viksux:

    Crabtree has big game and you get pummled at lambeau by the Niners you lose to Chicago and the vikings, pitt and Ariz and the Ravens for 8-8 season if your asking my opinion

    10-6 is a conservative estimate.

    Yeah, I'm trying to be realistic, so conservative but hoping for 11/5. And Skol guy, I'm surprised SF is doing so well. And they lost Gore in the first quarter against the Vikes didn't they? Singletary probably threatens to kick their ***.

    The teams we should beat and be favored in:

    Browns, Tampa, lions, Seahawks, Cardinals ( 16th and last game of the season, Cardinals will mathematically be out of it and won't matter to them)

    Teams that are up in the air, can go either way, Toss ups

    49ers, its at Green Bay, I like their coach, and Crabtree factor

    Vikings, its bad timing for our O-line, Tauscher may not be ready and Clifton is still banged up

    Dallas, just a toss up, leaning to be confident in a Packer win, it is at Home

    Ravens, a home game, great defense, good QB

    Chicago, Cutler HAS CLEANED THINGS UP, too close to call, on the road

    Steelers, its on the road, tough team that knows our defense.

    Say we lose 4 of the 6 games I have chosen as toss ups. That gives the Packers a 10-6 season, a good chance at a wild card. The vikings have an easy schedule, if BF stays healthy I can't see them losing more than 4 games (12-4).

    I will call it now, the vikings have a good chance to go undefeated in the regular season with a little luck, only to be humiliated by the Saints in the playoffs. If somehow the vikings get past the Steelers and the Packers on the road, their last 8 games are all winnable. They should be favored in all 8 games.:viksux::dontknow::rules2:

    Packer fans are optimistic today, good to see.

    My opinion, depends on some factors. Safety health. Barnett back to form (seems likely), CM3 and Kampman improving on their roles (seems likely). Rodgers being able to play. Return of Tauscher. Solid performance by our LT (Be it Clifton or Lang).

    If that happens, then I see:
    @ CLE = Win
    MIN = Win
    @ TB = Win
    Dal = Win
    49ers = Win
    @ Det = Win
    Bal = *
    @ Chi = Loss
    @ Pit = Loss
    Sea = Win
    @ Ari = **

    * Depends on their progression, and the state they are win. If they need the W desperately, I see a loss. Specially if we pull the streak I'm expecting us to pull...
    ** Again, depends on their progression, and the state they're in. But it'll also depend on the state we're in. If this game decides both their fates, then I could see us winning...

    The state they are in the last 8 is gonna depend on them winning the Viking game. That would be a big boost. Vikings could, just could, lose to Pittsburgh, GB, Chicago at Chicago, Giants, and just maybe to Az depending on how they're playing. They surprised everyone last year, and never count out Kurt Warner especially at home.

    Well, it's just that it's so absurd I feel pretty secure on that. I do think they're going to win the division, after the Baltimore game. But 16-0? No way.

    I'm stickin to 11/5 for Vikes, hoping for less, Possible 11/5 for us, hoping for more. We win on the tiebreaker 37/17 on Nov 1. We will at least get wild card. I scanned down the list and it's entirely possible.:viksux:

    You are all giving the Vikings way too much credit. Just wait for the other shoe to drop because it WILL happen

    Way cool for the North to get three in there with both wildcards.

    Where do get one of those mysterious packer Crystal balls as you sound like the same guy over and over. We won the division last year without #4, Percy Harvin and Phil Loadholt. So what does your cyrstal ball tell about the Vikings short comings? We win half our remaining games and we end up 11-5 and to tell you the truth I see a better than 500 record for the vikings in the last 10 games.

    San Fran has been way over rated this year.... I am really not sold on this team.... As a Seahawks fan I have to say that Arizona is going to win this division.... They started off slow but they are taking charge now..... I knew San Fran was going to get blown out against Atlanta.... Funny I actually thought they were going to get blown out by Minnesota as well, but Favre and AP had a bad day...

    There is no way San Fran's defense will be able to slow down Rodgers.... He is excellent at playing out of the pocket and San Fran wont have an answer for that.

    Packers are in good shape.... Only two tough games they will have will be Dallas and Minnesota. I would like to say Seattle lmao but after that horribly embarrassing A** whoopin they took at the hands of Arizona Packers will crush them.

    Arizona and Green Bay will be a good one as well.

    What? What Pocket? Rodgers has to have a pocket to workout of. Given time he has been great but the man has been sacked 25 times through 5 games so you are not given anybody credit for destroying that pocket. They have way too many penaltys as they have lead the NFL for awhile in that catergory. That is a undisaplined football team IMO. Atlanta and defending superbowl champions, baltimore along with San Fran and the 2 only tough games you have are minny and Dallas? Stay out of starbucks you have had way too much caffine seahawk guy.:yu:

    I'd add the away game at Pittsburgh in there as well. I don't think that will be a cake walk, and living in Baltimore, I know how the ravens can play. That will be a tough game as well.

    We don't play Atlanta, and SF is not though, despite you almost lost to them. Of course, saying they are though makes you look good, so...

    The rest, sad but true. If We Only Had A Brain l Packers Lounge

    The article, and the queen fan, are absolutely right. If we were more disciplined, not just on penalties, but on assignements, we would be one of the best teams in the league, as we have the talent.

    Yes, I did see the Vikes beating the Ravens. By a missed fieldgoal in the Metrodome. If that's all the better they can do at home, what they gonna do against a real team in their territory?

    Remember Frank Gore was out at the very beginning of that Viking game. The only real team the Vikes have played IMO is Baltimore and they won that by a missed FG. I know, I know, a win is a win, but if I recall, the Vikes were behind at halftime against Cleve and Detroit. GB will manhandle SF.
