    Really Tramon? Soldier Field as the second best stadium? The Vikings stadium was better with the snow that collapsed on the field.

    15-1......pretty bold predtiction in my book. I actually like sporting news quite a bit. Glad to see someone is giving us the credit we deserve.

    15-1 would be pretty epic. The real Brett Favre might show up in GB to watch something that special.

    Yeah, but would he sign autographs? (and if he did would anyone want one?)

    He might need to go in full uniform for people to know who he is.

    I think 15-1 is pushing it, I would be really surprised if we finished like that. I say 13-3 or 12-4 realistically.

    Chicago at 8-8 is realistic.

    I've not been to GB so I can't be sure, but aren't there "Most Wanted" posters all around, and sure Farm and Fleet has shooting targets with his face on them that would help people recognize him. But the uniform sounds like a great idea as well.

    It might be pushing it Bogie, but I don't think it's far fetched. I really don't. If you think about it, all the games you are penciling in as losses at 13-3 and 12-4 could easily go the other way right?
    I'm staying at 14-2 and I know it seems optimistic, but I AM optimistic about this team.

    I'd rather have an autograph from the imposter.

    I agree, I have not seen anything from this team that indicates they can go 15-1 in the regular season. I don't think that's a realistic possibility, simply because that's not the makeup of the team.

    Maybe they've shifted gears with the last playoffs' performance, but so far, in the regular season, this team is yet to put up a complete performance (run D, run O, pass D, pass O, ST), and without consistantly performing like that, in today's NFL, it's almost impossible to go 15-1. There will be games where the focus of the team won't be 100%. And, again, in today's NFL, if a team doesn't go 100% focused, it won't win, even against lesser teams like the Rams and the Panthers.

    And even if they go 10-0, or something like that, there'll be a time when starters are gonna be spared. When the games won't matter, they'll already have clinched homefield advantage.

    Talent-wise, I believe we can beat any team anywhere. But for 16 games, when right after there's the incredibly stressful playoffs? I don't see it.

    15-1 is absurd. 11-5 or 12-4 is more likely. The Packers will have a big bullseye on their backs this year.

    I might become a member over there just to call this person out.

    Then again, the bears fans seem unable to understand the concept of a preservation fund.

    You should hear all the Bears fans threatening to cancel their subscriptions.

    Or the ones who suddenly decided they are just a rag and don't know what they are writing about.
