    Does anyone know when next years schedule will come out?
    I wanna know because im moving to guantanamo bay,cuba (I'm a navy cop) and apparently flying to jacksonville from there is dirt cheap (like 35 dollars). So im hoping we play them in jax next year so i can go and support them! One day i will see them play in Lambeau but till then this will have to do lol

    Well, we don't necessarily know 2 of our opponents, but we play the afc south in 2 years. But if both us and the jags win their division or get second we could play...


    Each team plays home and away against its three division opponents, which accounts for six games on the schedule.

    Each team plays four teams from another division within its conference on a rotating three-year cycle, which accounts for four more games.

    Each team plays four teams from a division in the other conference on a rotating four-year cycle, which accounts for another four games.

    Each team plays two intraconference games based on the prior year's standings. For example, the first-place team in a division will play against the first-place team from another division within the same conference. The second place team in a division will play against the second-place team from another division within the same conference, etc...

    We're due to play the AFC West and NFC South next season, so for sure we'll be playing the Chargers in SD, Raiders in Oak, Broncos at home, Chiefs at home, Tampa Bay and New Orleans at home, Atlanta and Carolina away. This is opposite to where we played them last time.

    All that's left to figure out is which NFC West and East opponent we play, which will be based on where we all finish within our divisions, and when we play them. The schedule usually comes out in April.

    For 2012 it will be AFC South and NFC West. 2013 will be AFC East and NFC East. 2014 will be AFC North and NFC South, and so on...

    Besides the division we play, how do they figure out which of our other NFC opponents we play at home vs. away?

    For example, how do we determine our NFC East foe next year will be on the road and our NFC West foe will be at home?

    Not really. The difference is two opponents, otherwise you play the same schedule. This year the Bears played the Seahawks and Panthers while we played the Falcons and 49ers. Next year the Bears will play either the Giants or Eagles and the Rams or Seahawks while we'll play the other one. Everything else will be the same.

    2011 Schedule: A Peek Ahead

    If there's no work stoppage, this is who the Packers will play next year.
    There are only 2 teams that are yet to be determined.

    But if we win the division, we will get that division's winner. If we're 2nd place, we'll get that division's 2nd place team.

    I'm not gonna list the 6 divisional games as those are a given.

    HOME
    New Orleans
    Tampa Bay (good... we lost to them in TB in 09 & 08]
    Denver
    Kansas City
    NFC West (Seattle or St Louis)

    AWAY
    Atlanta (damn, why not in GB this time)
    Carolina (easy ticket to get for Packer fans)
    Oakland (dangerous fans)
    San Diego (I'm going... Rivers vs Rodgers)
    NFC East (Philly or NYG)

    Please don't say that, Tampa last year was supposed to be a gimme and look how that played out. It looks like we may be having clumps of hair pulled out and no nails left to bite on by the end of the season next year.

    Chargers have such a crummy fan base, combined with tons of Packer fans in Southern California, I think the place would be overrun with Cheeseheads.

    wow

    I merged Franks with the one that I and a few others made yesterday

    I am not trying to be an ***, but we have a program in place that alerts the OP when he/she is creating that already has a topic similar..

    Frank did you not see that?

    I like that new program and I was hoping it would find it for me before I posted it.... but the list that it pulled up didn't seem relative to this.... I don't think THIS thread is one of the few it showed as options. Sorry if it was and I missed it, but I was aware of that feature which is a great one. Either I missed it, or it was not on because the titles were not too close?

    If it wasn't on the little list I got, then YES you were being an ***!
    If it was on there, I was a blind donkey !

    Maybe we can tweak it some, I just tried to make one with your exact title and old threads did pop up from April..So your correct, THIS thread did not show with what you had..

    I will get Rob to check it out

    The only reason why I personally hate duplicate threads is that lot of time people make a lot of interesting posts and they get lost in the new one..

    So I try to keep all as one..

    First of all I want to thank you for your service. And if you water-board any one, or deprive them of sleep, make sure they are Bear or Viking fans.

    Bless you

    That makes me feel better!
    I make plenty of errors... show signs of Alzheimer's quite often, and have had 3 concussions in my life.... so I'm happy this one wasn't on me for once!
