Well, the season is almost upon us and with it a clash between the Packers and the Seahawks to kick
Today is the day for predictions and if you didn’t get a chance to read Mike’s predictions, check ’em out here. For my part, what follows is my own shot at predictions, but more importantly, YOUR chance at predictions. This year’s prediction contest winner will win a GPN gift pack which includes a $100.00 gift certificate to the Packers Pro Shop! Read on to find out how to enter:
There are two assumptions I am going to make in my predictions. I think they are safe:
- The Packers will not have as many crucial injuries as last season
- The Packers defense will be improved
I think the Packers will take care of business tonight and I don’t see the Carolina Panthers, though they are a great defensive team, scoring enough points to beat the Pack. Add to that a loss at the Saints and two losses to NFC North teams (I know…I know!), one of which will be the last game of the season against the Lions simply because it will be the first season finale that will be irrelevant since the NFL started matching up Division rivals for the last game of the season.
Packers – Super Bowl Champs! I just don’t think Seattle is going to do it again (though I am the only one if the national media is counted) and though I think the NFC will be a tough row to hoe for the Packers, if they stay healthier and the defense improves, we have as good a chance as anyone. And Mike McCarthy will have this team ready for every game.
