Packers Playing NFL Opener in Seattle Highlights 2014 Schedule

Packers Playing NFL Opener in Seattle Highlights 2014 Schedule

The Green Bay Packers will play in the NFL's annual season-opening Thursday night game in primetime that is hosted by defending Super Bowl champion. This year that means a trip to Seattle to take on the Russell Wilson and the Seahawks.

  • Week 1: Thursday Sept. 4 at Seattle Seahawks, 7:30 p.m. on NBC

Analysis: The key figures might be gone from the game that has become known as the "Fail Mary," but this will be the first regular-season meeting between the two clubs since that fateful 2012.

Former Packers safety M.D. Jennings signed with the Bears in the offseason, former Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate signed with the Lions and former replacement referee Lance Easley is far away from all NFL stadiums.

Regardless, going on the road to the home of the 12th man and arguably the best defense in all of football is going to be no easy task for the Packers.

  • Week 2: Sunday Sept. 14 vs. New York Jets, 3:25 p.m. on CBS

Analysis: The home opener at Lambeau Field will see the Packers play their first of the four AFC East opponents this season against an underachieving Jets team that went just 2-6 on the road last season.

Due to playing in the season-opening Thursday night game, the Packers will go 10 games between their first two games, which could be beneficial after a long road trip to the West Coast.

  • Week 3: Sunday Sept. 21 at Detroit Lions, 12:00 p.m. on Fox

Analysis: The trend of the Packers playing at the Lions on Thanksgiving every other year continues with 2014 being an off year, seeing as the Lions will host the Bears on Turkey Day.

Week 3 also marks the first game against a division opponent, which will be key if the Packers hope to repeat as NFC North champions.

  • Week 4: Sunday Sept. 28 at Chicago Bears, 12:00 p.m. on Fox

Analysis: Attention Week 4 will be all about Julius Peppers, who will return to the city where he spent the last four seasons after signing with the Packers as a free agent.

The Packers will also get a gander at all the new signings the Bears brought in to replace Peppers on the defensive line. Chicago hopes Jared Allen, Lamarr Houston and Willie Young will find a way to harrass Aaron Rodgers.

  • Week 5: Thursday Oct. 2 vs. Minnesota Vikings, 7:25 p.m. on CBS

Analysis: For the second time, the Packers will play a Thursday night football game to be televised as part to be new partnership between CBS and the NFL Network. They'll be working on only three days of rest coming off the Bears game.

It likely won't get the same focus as last year, but fans are sure to let Greg Jennings know what they think about him signing with the border rival when he returns to Lambeau Field.

  • Week 6: Sunday Oct. 12 at Miami Dolphins, 12:00 p.m. on Fox

Analaysis: The Packers will face former offensive coordinator Joe Philbin for the first time since leaving to become head coach of the Dolphins.

Philbin will be looking to turn around the fortunes of the Dolphins after being embroiled in turmoil last season due to the uncomfortable situation involving Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin.

  • Week 7: Sunday Oct. 19 vs. Carolina Panthers, 12:00 on Fox

Analysis: The marquee matchup will be likely between the quarterbacks, Aaron Rodgers and Cam Newton, the NFL's No. 1 overall draft choice in 2011.

Also make sure to join Cheeshead TV for our sponsored event, Throwback Weekend, a meeting of Packers fans around the nation and around the world. Check out ThrowbackWeekend.com for more details.

  • Week 8: Sunday Oct. 26 at New Orleans Saints, 7:30 p.m. on NBC

Analysis: For the last game before the bye, the Packers travel to take on Drew Brees and the Saints in a nationally televised game in primetime.

After going to Bourbon Street and New Orleans, the Packers will have a full two weeks off before returning to action.

  • Week 9: Bye
  • Week 10: Sunday Nov. 9 vs. Chicago Bears, 7:30 p.m. on NBC

Analysis: The Packers may have had two mini-byes earlier in the season after Thursday night football games, but they'll benefit from a full two weeks of preparation before facing their NFC North rival.

The first meeting between the Packers and the Bears was about Julius Peppers' return to Chicago, but the re-match will be M.D. Jennings return to Green Bay. There likely will be little love lost as Jennings provided little contribution to a poor Packers defense in 2013.

  • Week 11: Sunday Nov. 16 vs. Philadelphia Eagles, 12:00 p.m. on Fox

Analysis: For a second straight week, the Packers will host a home game at Lambeau Field.

And for just the second time, the Packers will face Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly and his up-tempo offense.

  • Week 12: Sunday Nov. 23 at Minnesota Vikings, 12:00 p.m. on Fox

Analysis: On the weekend before Thanksgiving, the Packers will travel to their NFC North counterpart.

For new Packers free agent signee Letroy Guion, it will be the first time he visits his former employer.

  • Week 13: Sunday Nov. 30 vs. New England Patriots, 3:25 p.m. on CBS

Analysis: As long as both players are healthy, this will be the first meeting between the Packers and Patriots with Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady as starting quarterbacks.

The last time the two teams played in 2010, Matt Flynn subbed for an injured Rodgers, who was out with a concussion. Before that in 2006, Brett Favre was the starting quarterback for the Packers, although Rodgers saw playing time when Favre got injured.

  • Week 14: Monday Dec. 8 vs. Atlanta Falcons, 7:30 p.m. on ESPN

Analysis: The only Monday Night Football game of the season for the Packers takes place when they take on the Atlanta Falcons.

Last season, the Packers hosted the Falcons in an early-December game as well. Quarterback Matt Flynn will have fond memories, helping to lead the Packers to a come-from-behind victory that helped keep the team's playoff hopes alive.

  • Week 15: Sunday Dec. 14 at Buffalo Bills, 12:00 p.m. on Fox

Analysis: Despite earlier reports, the Packers will not face the Bills on Monday Night Football.

They will face a team looking for a new owner, however. But one thing is for sure, the Packers will not be playing the Bills in Toronto.

  • Week 16: Sunday Dec. 21 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 12:00 p.m. on Fox

Analysis: The Packers and their fans probably won't mind a late-season visit to a warm-weather climate when they visit Tampa Bay the weekend before Christmas.

It will be the first time tight end Tom Crabtree faces his former team since leaving the Packers as a free agent last season. The same goes for center Evan Dietrich-Smith this season too.

  • Week 17: Sunday Dec. 28 vs. Detroit Lions, 12:00 p.m. on Fox

Analysis: Since 2010, the NFL has made it a point to schedule division opponents in the season finale to keep playoff implications going down to the wire.

That tradition continues as the Packers host the Lions in what they hope will be their final game before an appearance in the playoffs.

Looking forward to Seattle opening game of the season! Gonna knock off those SeaChickens!!! Mark it down.

COW's picture

i'll be able to remember something that ridiculous without having to mark it down.

4thand1's picture

We all remember your 6-10 prediction from last year. 8-7-1 without Rodgers for half the season, that's like really way off. You lose again.

packeraaron's picture

Cow always loses.

COW's picture

Ready to pick that Seattle game?
Still gonna wait until after the draft?
What confuses me is when you say that people judge rookies too soon... but then you, yourself, won't make a prediction on a week1 game until after you see what new rookies the team will have.

So which is it?
Do you count on rookies contributing or don't you?

Come on, bro - I understand that you love the Pack... and you WANT them to beat Seattle... but they're not going to... and you know that.

We ALL know that.

JimTaylor31's picture

Actually I like the Packers chances against the Hawks with or without the draft. Team should be healthy and with guys like D. Jones, Hayward, Perry, Daniels, Hyde etc. stepping up on defense along with Peppers gives us a pretty strong group. CM3 should be ready to go. If we get any upgrade at safety then that's a plus. I don't like our ILBs but that's the way it goes. The offense will be very good as we all know. The Packers should match up well with anybody as long as we can avoid the injury bug. Not perfect but nobody has the perfect roster.

COW's picture

That's a lot of unproven guys you're counting on.

Also - I'm not so sure the Packer offense will be as prolific as some think.
The days of 80,85,88,18,89, 87 are gone.
Only 18,87 are left.

PackerBacker's picture

And 27, let's not forget him.

4thand1's picture

Cow is not worthy.

JimTaylor31's picture

I am counting on unproven guys. You seem to think that everybody on the roster will tank. Not true. This isn't a great roster but it is a good roster. Very capable of beating Seattle or anybody else when the key players are healthy. With Rodgers at QB the offense will be at worst just "good". With 27, 11, 18, 87 they should be fine. I know 86 or 81 will have to step up at TE.

COW's picture

I don't think they'll tank.
I just think the most likely scenario is that they all stay pretty much the same... and that ain't good enough.

Stroh's picture

The difference between fans is we expect some guys to take a step forward early in their careers. You think when a player is drafted he's a finished product and don't allow that ANYONE can step forward!

Look at Collins and Bishop! Year 4 before they took that step forward!

Driver wasn't productive in either of his last 2 yrs. Should have gotten rid of him sooner. Did we miss Jennings last year? No, he still needed a QB to get him the ball. Wasn't much wrong w/ the offense that a healthy Rodgers doesn't fix. That's how it is w/ GREAT QB's... They make everyone better. Jones is a QB dependent WR, Boykin showed last year he can be as productive, maybe more. Cobb and Nelson are going NOWHERE! Mark it down, the offense will be top 2 0r 3 in the NFL w/ Rodgers!

So its Boykin instead of Jones.
Lacy instead of Jennings.
Driver addition by subtraction.

A QB's best friend is a great RB FAR more than more recievers! If you knew football as much as you pretend you would recognize that.

jh9's picture

The key is the first half of the schedule. If the Packers can go 5-3 in their first eight games, they have an excellent chance of being NFC North champs again.

Lynn Dickey 12's picture

Hey Brian, GB faced Chip Kelly for the first time last year. Worst game I've ever sat thru at Lambeau.

4thand1's picture

Yeah, that was bad. The secondary kept running into each other.

Zoellner25's picture

That schedule looks awfully tough. Seattle, New England, New Orleans. Wow. At least the indoor/outdoor sets up nice for end of the year.

DrealynWilliams's picture

I must admit that the first 6 games look tough,but we are a damn good team. Barring any significant injury (injuries) I feel we should start no worse than 4-2.

SEA's great defense worries me.
DET's improved offense worries me. What if they end up draft Evans???!!!

What I'll be hoping for this season is a quicker rhythm for the offense. I think the only time the Pack jumped into an early rhythm was against the Redskins.

Jordan's picture

But you just said yesterday that you weren't worried......lol

"Games/teams like that no longer worry me with the addition of Lacy and Starks now playing the role he's meant for"

You should be worried. If you're not worried.....you will be. You will be.

http://youtu.be/tUoBkhTFdWA

DrealynWilliams's picture

I'm thinking more along with injuries this post. Now that we know Rodgers is human...

The other post you quoted was more about matching talent and win/loss.

Jordan's picture

Redskins? Rhythm? Redskins were in 3-13 in 2013. Are you evaluating the packers offense up against a 3-13 team?

DrealynWilliams's picture

I'm pointing out one of the few times the Pack got into an early rhythm on offense. I don't care who the opposing team was.

Jordan's picture

I would focus on what the packers offense did against the teams they played with a winning record in 2013. There's only two of them. Bengals and 49ers. 0-3
If you have them on DVR or have NFL Rewind......those three games are the most important to watch packers offense. ....IMO.

DrealynWilliams's picture

Didn't I say I was only pointing out a time where the Pack started off quickly!?

That Bengals game should not be a representation of the Pack's (potential) offense. The offense and "special" team is what decided that game.

The first 49ers loss -- no excuse. The secondary (our weakest area) was torched. That game is more of a representation of what the Pack's offense could be. You can't tell me the Pack doesn't win that game with even CHARLIE PEPRAH or Bigby next to Burnett.

Nick Perry's picture

Most "Experts" had the Redskins winning the East after winning it the year before. The Packers have always started fast on offense, excellent in the Red Zone, but last year they struggled for the first time in years. Of course losing Bulaga, Jones, Cobb, Finley, and Rodgers to name a few didn't help. BUT the Packers still finished 3rd in total offense in the NFL, THIRD. McCarthy has said it was his fault he never had the Packers playing with the rhythm he'd hoped for.

I don't know who your favorite team is Jordan, but it's obvious you're scared of the Green Bay Packers. What I can't understand is with all life has to offer, you'd spend so much time trolling on a Packers Website. Sad, so sad.

COW's picture

"3rd in total offense..."

That's in yards.
Which means nothing.

ray nichkee's picture

Speaking of trolls with nothing to do, cow is right on cue.

Jordan's picture

Hmmm. Who's trolling? Pointing out facts to naive homers isn't trolling. The redskins were 3-13. Fact. He's talking about how fast the Packers started against a friggin 3-13 team. Who cares how good the packers offense played against a flippin 3-13 team. There's not any 3-13 teams in the playoffs.

I'm hoping McCarthy, Rodgers and the offense improves for 2014. But for you to say the Packers had the 3rd best offense in 2013 without qualifying that statement by also adding that they had the 3rd weakest schedule in 2013 is misleading and homerish. They only played 2 flippin teams with a winning record and lost all 3 games. Why is that so hard for you to grasp and put in to perspective?

Carry on.

4thand1's picture

What's with all the dislikes? Even on ordinary posts. The average fan doesn't keep logging out and chiming in only to hit the dislike button. Evidence of trolling hands down. There's more than one in here. I'm sure most are Packer fans in here , but are pretty pessimistic. Gotta learn to relax, it comes with age.

Nick Perry's picture

These trolls like Jordan and Cow have like 20 login names, no life, and come here and dislike every comment. I mean look at the number of comments they make to just one blog! Do they have jobs, families, A LIFE? Who has time to make 20 friken comments on every topic written on this site? I have a feeling they're both 45 year old men living with mom still.

ray nichkee's picture

That ain't no feeling.

Eraserhead's picture

Why all the hatred? Is it because these guys actually know football and talk with FACTS???!!! We all love the Packers we are worried Dumbson and McMoron are wasting this team's OPPORTUNITY.

Signing a washed out bum (Peppers) just because he once was a force? He's gonna be worthless, mark my words you homers.

!!!

ray nichkee's picture

You need to change your name because you are undeserving. That movie has been disgraced by your self appointed name. You are the one with hatred jackass. A fireback at some shit stains comments that were posted to piss people off is not hatred. Sorry but most of the posters here are educated. If you waste your time educating yourself about the packers your main goal is to find facts to twist your way into saying the packers suck. This ain't the 80's. Find a team that has been as successfull as the packers in the last two decades. I believe the pats are the only team to win 3 in that period. Go back into your basement and make sure to let your mom know when you get hungry.

Mojo's picture

19 & 0

Nice to have a divisional game after the bye when the Packers historically have done well.

Last year a lot of us thought the Pack were in store for a hellacious season because of their schedule. It turned out the Packers Sos was 30th in the league.

Teams change so much year-to -year, it's too hard to predict how tough this years schedule will be. It could turn out the Pats will suck and the Bills will contend. Er- forget that - what universe am I wallowing in?

COW's picture

@Seattle - loss (this won't be close)
@Chicago - loss (Bears' O is miles ahead of Pack D)
@Detroit - loss (even having Rodgers would not have changed Thanksgiving debacle)
Minn off 3 days rest after 2 road games - loss
Carolina - loss (Pack can't play that type of football... ie fundamental/physical)
@NO - loss
PHILLY - loss (Capers D will be uber-confused)
NE - loss (coaching mismatch)

This is one of the least talented Packer teams we have seen in a while.

Jenkins is now D. Jones
Bishop is now B. Jones
Collins is now ???????????????????
Woodson is now Hyde
Clifton is now Bakhtiari
Bulaga is now double leg injury Bulaga
Wells/EDS is now Tretter maybe?
Jordy/Cobb/Driver/Jennings/Jones/Finley is now Jordy/Cobb/Boykin/White/???????/Quarless
Tramon is now got paid/old Tramon
Capers is still Capers
Hawk is still Hawk

These are not good trade-offs.

Stroh's picture

Ok CowShit, we have you down for 0-8 to start the season! Clearly this is the worst team in the NFL! F'in Dumbass... Don't worry it won't be hard to throw manure in your face yet AGAIN!

COW's picture

I never said 0-8 to start the season.
Keep making stuff up, though... it's cool.

BradHTX's picture

Well, guess we might as well just roll up the green carpet and not even bother playing the games. We're only gonna go 0-16 anyway, so really, why not just sell Lambeau to Shopko and ship the team off to Los Angeles?

*shakng my head*

COW's picture

Or Packer management could stop screwing around and give Rodgers a team to win with.

Your suggestion seems a bit drastic.

Stroh's picture

Not anymore than your "predictions"!!!

Alex Tallitsch's picture

Not that I approve of COW in any fashion, but he makes a relatively loose point here in that there are plenty of unanswered questions on the roster. Center most notably.

The Packers are hoping that the talent on paper lives up to the hype. I tend to take the more optimistic route, but there is a valid argument to be made here if you wash away all the cowshit.

Nick Perry's picture

There's not a team in the NFL with unanswered questions. The Packers actually just staying healthy would go a long ways.

Mojo's picture

I can see the Packers dominating Family Night.

BradHTX's picture

Perspective, people... Remember how this time last year, people were talking about a Falcons vs. Texans Super Bowl? Predictions at this point, proclaiming the Pack will lose this game and win that one, are pointless. The games have to be played. Teams we think are good will turn out to suck, and some we think suck will surprise.

That said, the only games I see that I'd consider likely losses are @SEA, @DET and @NO -- and any of those are winnable (@SEA least likely, of course -- but hey, we beat them in '12!). All the rest, I like that we we play teams like PHI, NE and CAR at home, and our away games are against the likes of TB and BUF. That's actually a pretty favorable aspect of the schedule, as is the mid-season bye.

Nick Perry's picture

Thank you Brad, well said. The games have to be played and how many times have we saw teams have a Superbowl Hangover? I doubt it happens but one thing is certain, the NFL has surprises every year. Seems no one is talking about the Packers but they should be. Seattle won't have Browner, he's suspended, they won't have Thurmond, he's in New York, gone are two or 3 of the DL studs, and most important is M.D. Jennings is miles away and is now Chicago's problem. I like the Packers against Seattle, they'll be healthy at least.

COW's picture

"they'll be healthy at least"

Right.
It's not "who's" gonna get hurt in camp.
It's "how many".

4thand1's picture

Cow's getting his rocks off early I see. Cover that keyboard cowpie, don't want the keys sticking. Dam this site needs an ignore button.

DrealynWilliams's picture

When the Pack are healthy and kickin' ass this season I'm coming in talking crazy sh*t!

COW's picture

There are good teams on the schedule.
Packers do not beat good teams.
Haven't for years.

Go check their record vs eventual playoff teams the last couple years.
Go check their record vs teams that ended with above .500 records.

Not.
Good.

4thand1's picture

15-1 2012. Years???!!?? You lose again, 67-0

Mojo's picture

I'll bet one of the promotional aspects of the Seattle GB game will center around the Fail Mary. After the embarrassment of that moment you have to credit the NFL for turning a turd into a gem. They can do no wrong.

HankScorpio's picture

I immediately thought that the next NFL game is a rematch of the Fail Mary game, too.

But my take is that the NFL is practically begging for a negative storyline attached to their grand kick-off. That's really bad optics. They should have put SF or Den at Seattle for the traditional Thursday night home opener for the defending champs.

LAS VEGAS-TOM's picture

WBAY, Channel 2 GB, mentioned why they passed on DEN & SF. I can't remember why they passed on SF, but they passed on Den, because the SB was so bad. The next team in line was GB.

PackerBacker's picture

Wasn't it that they wanted the SF game for Thanksgiving night more?

LAS VEGAS-TOM's picture

I just can't recall? There was a reason they passed on SF. I don't remember what they said. They did say GB was next in line. If I heard it right, the NFL also changed the number of night or late games they can change, from 3 to 6. Not 100% sure on the numbers, but they did up the number. LVT

Clay's picture

My vocabulary terms for this post:

1) Epitomize
2) Paradigm

Upon the announcement of the 2014 season, Stroh offered a "hurrah" Pack type comment, aka "Let's go Pack and whip the Seahawks".
Cow predictably rained on Stroh's parade. This EPITOMIZES the most paradigmatic conversation between a good fan and a troll on this site. It's getting so old and ruining a productive discussion about the Pack for most of us.

Cow, we KNOW that the Pack may get whipped in Seattle. but we also KNOW that the Pack is as capable as any team in the NFL as upsetting Seattle on opening night

Further, suppose the odds play out in your favor. There are many many reasons that Seattle may be at an advantage on opening night, but the Packers organization being totally inept. horribly managed, and headed for irrelevance are NOT the reasons.

You being so wise should know "Sh**" happens in life. This is why we watch the NFL. It is full of surprises.

NO ONE really knows how it's going to play out. That's why it's so fun.

But if that's your style of being a fan, with your deep insightful reality check for Stroh that brings us all down to Earth, that's totally cool. It is very healing for us to know that at minimum we stand a mere 1/32 chance of winning the SB.

We love you man. Thanks for being a Packers fan.

Stroh's picture

Kinda useless using vocabulary or logic on CowStain!

COW's picture

"There are many many reasons that Seattle may be at an advantage on opening night, but the Packers organization being totally inept. horribly managed, and headed for irrelevance are NOT the reasons."

I wouldn't be so sure about this.

I think the subtraction of Rodgers last year showed that all of the factors you listed very well might be in effect.

This is a very bad football team with a very good quarterback... that'll get you only so far.

It's a shame the organization can't do it's job better.

Frustrates the hell out of me.

Wasting a hall of fame qb.

ray nichkee's picture

Cow, you are just trying to stir the pot again. I am surprised you ain't smearing your shit on rodgers. You are a F.I.B. living in F.I.B.land. go to the bears websites and shit on them. You are not a packer fan. You are just trying to force your miserable life upon the rest.

LAS VEGAS-TOM's picture

Cow, I do not disagree with everything you have to say, but you totally disregard the injuries this team has played through. Was our defense bad last year?? No, it was Terrible, & we were still an eyelash away. We would have beat Carolina & Seattle, because the Seattle game would have had the 2 R's. Revenge & Rodgers. Those things happen every week in the NFL. Denver would not have beaten us either, Just like they couldn't beat San Diego at home, when the whole world thought they would.

I would be a little careful before picking Seattle to do well this year, & to win opening night. Can they win?? Sure they can, but No SB Champion has done very well since 2004 when NE repeated. In fact, NO SUPER BOWL CHAMPION since 2004 has WON 1 PLAYOFF GAME. Let me repeat that. (NO SUPER BOWL CHAMPION) HAS WON EVEN 1 PLAYOFF GAME SINCE 2004). That's really not a good team to be staking your, (as you said to me once) your CREDIBILITY on. I think I would lean towards GB, opening night. LVT

COW's picture

Over last 9 opening night games... previous year's SB winners are 8-1.

So, there's that.

LAS VEGAS-TOM's picture

Cow, I don't disagree, BUT THAT'S NOT THAT.. They didn't play GB, or against AR, & there was No Revenge Factor. The over all production of the last 10 years of SB winners has been poor. Seattle would be bucking a bigger trend than opening night. Don't read anything into Seattle's wins over SF & Denver. They had everything their way. They caught SF at Home with SF's 3rd road game in a row. & Everyone in the World but me bet on Denver in the SB. Those are almost always both sure losers. I don't bet the GB game, but I'll go against your 8-1 trend, & play my 0-10 trend. LVT

poppacker's picture

LOVE'S TO BE MISERABLE
When a person is unhappy with this entire organization as Cow is, but stays a fan, boggles the mind

Clay's picture

Cow believe us we REALLY GET where you are coming from.

Here is the thing. Let's suppose you are right about everything. Guess what? The changes you want (wholesale organizational restructuring...ousting TT, Capers, McCarthy, replacing the whole team except for Rodgers) are NEVER in a million years going to happen.

So either cheer for this team as it is and hope as we all do that it gets better (in your case despite itself), or seriously just go away and cheer for whatever organization suits your needs.

You are crying over spilled milk and we all have to listen to it. It's the same damn tune with you ad infinitum. It serves no point.

I want to be here to learn from fellow Packer fans and also cheer my team. Further, if the organization really does tank or show itself to be the next Cleveland Browns, I am sure the real fans here will be objective enough to admit it.

Speaking of season predictions, the only thing we really know is that you will bet against the Pack every time, and disparage them at every turn. THAT we can predict, and it is so painfully annoying.

But like I said apparently you are a Packer fan in your own twisted dysfunctional way, so once again I send you much love and GO PACK.

ray nichkee's picture

My predictions for the season are:

The injury bug will go easy one the pack this year.

They will lose two games to bad teams.

They will hand it to two good teams this year.

They will rush for 2000 yds this year.

They will win at least 10 games and the division this year.

Cow will still be an ass and point out every flaw he can continuing to shit on the pack pretending to be a fan. He will be quiet when all is good and show up to say I told you so when something bad happens.

Most of the rest of us will be content sharing views and comments among true fans while enjoying the entertainment value offered by the games.

I guarantee that at least two things on this list will happen.

COW's picture

"They will win at least 10 games and the division this year."

this is enough for most.

not me.

16-0 without a ring is a waste of a season.

all that matters is winning the whole thing.

this is where people misunderstand me. i agree that the Packers, constructed as they currently are, can contend for a division crown - if all things go right.

but this Packer team, constructed as it currently is, can't win the Super Bowl.

they (tt, mccarthy, rodgers, capers, etc.) need to do better.

TommyG's picture

Good post, and accurate. We need to be able to put a team together that can take down the Hawks, Niners, Panthers, Saints, et al. If we can't then we are really playing just for fun.

Nick Perry's picture

I'm sure most thought that of the 2010 Packers, 2011 Giants, and 2012 Ravens. Like it or not Cow, this team is as capable as any in the NFL.

ray nichkee's picture

Assuming that you are male cow, your expectations are way too high leading me to believe you have not found your perfect boyfriend yet. I hope you find him someday so you can exert your emotions and energy on him so you won't frequent this site anymore. You need to work on your social skills if you want people to like you instead of having multiple acounts so you can like all your comments and dislike the rest. Every packer fan here knows where improvement is needed. They also know it is not as easy as you think it is to put the best roster on the field every game. You can't even give an 8-7-1 team without rodgers for half the season credit for winning the division and coming so close to beating the 49ers in the playoffs. That was one of the most entertaining seasons I can remember. Not many people would think whipping every team 45-17 every week and walking into the superbowl entertaining. Remember farve taking the pack to the nfc champ game only to lose to the giants? That was fun. They didn't belong there. How about 2010. That was fun and nobody had them going all the way. That was fun. When you demand perfection you lose touch with all reality not being able to see that this is a game of human confrontation played by humans and watched by humans. What kind of a world do you live in that you cannot be entertained by anything other than perfection? I in no means want to bad mouth homosexuals in this comment as there are many I respect more than you, but you sir are the stereotipical booger eater living in your moms basement only leaving when you run out of soda and microwave food. Get a life cow.

You showed your level of class as soon as you used sexuality as an insult.

I've never insulted another poster.
Go ahead and check.

By the way, I think you're wrong on this...

"Not many people would think whipping every team 45-17 every week and walking into the superbowl entertaining. "

I, for one, would think that would be entertaining as hell.

I understand that building a SB level contender is not easy. Just bothers me that the same problems hold the Packers back every year... and never get fixed.

You did not deny that you are a booger eater that lives in your moms basement. Loser. You don't think that any of your comments are insulting? Loser. How many times have you used the word sucks? Loser. You won't admit you have posted from several names and we know you have. Loser. You seem to enjoy commenting negatively to almost every post. Loser. You often quote other people and then give your point of view as it is the gospel. Loser. The best part is that you don't think any of your comments are insulting to anybody and if they are you are not trying to insult everybody. Loser.

If you want people to respect your opinion try respecting them. If you think the way you come across to people is ok try it in public. See how many friends you make. This could be a come to jesus moment for you. You may learn to make people like you. The best part is that you may be able to move out of your moms basement and live in a place with windows. Your body sinthesizes vitamin d from the sun and does a body good. You just may pull out of this cow.

You are the turd who accused me of lying and saying I was at the 49er playoff game this year. What is the point of saying that. $300 can buy me a decent seat in lambeau but it can't buy you a life or personality. That you will have to work on yourself.

Most of the people on here I can converse with and disagree, agree, and even learn stuff as a true packer fan while on this site, or while having a beer at a bar, or high fiving at lambeau. You on the other hand seem to be on the contrary. Its not too late to change cow. You can start buy admitting most of your posts are intended to insult somebody and you have had numerous names as a poster (clowney42 etc.) Get it together, or go away, please.

Cow, If that's how you really feel, I commend you. I think to some degree we all feel that way. If we don't win at least 1 more SB with AR, it will be a Waste. Hopefully our defense will be Tougher this year, & our offense will stay healthy. In Vegas, in 2010, the guy's behind the counter were all saying, teams need to score 40 pts to beat GB. I'd like to get back to that, & get some help from our defense. I'm optimistic that will happen this year. Hawk's on a short leash as far as I'm concerned. Maybe with some better linebacking help this year, he'll play like the player everyone thinks he is. That will definitely help. Every TD we can Stop, is 1 less we have to score. I'm actually with you on Defense. Someone in GB better have something figured out. LVT

3 years in a row now we open the season against one of the 2 or 3 best teams in the league. SF SF and Seattle all on their turf. Whats up with that.

Obviously the NFL thinks GB is good enough to hang with Seattle otherwise why would they start the season with this game?

I think it was SF at home the 1st year. The Packers get ratings and the NFL knows it.

4thand1's picture

trolls don't like that the Packers get ratings.

I like having the power teams up front like that. It is a good test to see if the off season work fixed certain issues. Last year we lost week 1 to SF, didn't fix the problem, and lost to them again in the playoffs. Win or lose to Seattle this week 1, we will know what needs to be fixed and what works. I love this challenge for our Packers.

lmao, cowturd likes himself.

LMFAO! Everyone is getting tons of dislikes! Only proves Cowturd and his troll coharts are button happy. Every true Packer fan is getting more dislikes. What a steaming pile of cowshit.

11-5 and a division win. My concern comes with the playoffs. Something big has to happen on our D this year or our playoffs will be "one and done"... again. Peppers was a great addition; now let's see some S and ILB help.

Safety help has to come from Hyde. A rookie will struggle making an immediate impact for the Packers. So Hyde (possibly Richardson) is the most likely way we improve at Safety.

I expect ILB to be a draft priority. Give me Shazier or Mosley and the ILB position is much improved. Both are pretty much plug and play and shouldn't have a large development period.

Packers are supposed to be simplifying the Defense, but using players that can handle it in more varied positons. Guys like Matthews, Peppers, Neal, Perry, and Datone Jones.

Jordan's picture

I don't know if a rookie safety would have to make an impact. They would just need to not suck.....and hold their own.

In theory, the Packers front 7 is going to be much improved. Peppers, d jones making the jump,Daniels is practically a veteran, Raji should be playing for something since he's on a 1 year contract, Matthews back, Perry's foot healed and he should be improved, worthy back. If you factor all the theoretical improvements in the front seven....including shazier or Mosley....I don't thing it's far fetched for a second or third round safety to start. If the packers' front 6 or 7 is dominant in 2014, then it will take pressure off of the safety position.

The problem with moving Hyde to safety is you're moving him away from the line of scrimmage too much. Hyde excels near the line of scrimmage with his physicality-blitz-tackling. And that's the weak part of Hayward's game is his blitzing. Hayward is better in coverage, but Hyde is better blitzing and supporting the run. A lot depends on the matchup though. If it's a team like Carolina, I want Hyde up there in nickel instead of Hayward due to Newton. Hayward will bounce off of Newton like bug.

4thand1's picture

Newton looks like he leveled off as a throwing QB. He stunk against SF in the playoffs. A beat up Packers team gave SF a better game.

Stroh's picture

Hyde would still be getting near the LOS. He would be the coverage Safety that plays the TE and would also be the dime CB. That would allow a rookie to come in and fit into a role instead of a primary positional player and help him acclimate to the NFL and the Packers scheme.

If Hyde is moved to Safety, which McCarthy hinted at, since its the only way to get him on the field full time, he can still play close to the LOS a lot.

Hayward is a good tackler too, I have no worries about him.

From Haywards NFL combine page... "has shown that he can play physically at the line of scrimmage. He is a reliable tackler when around the ball."

The Packers are great and fun to watch. GOPACKGO.

I like how the schedule shakes out, but I liked how in the last few seasons there were more divisional games worked into the last few weeks. It sure was fun watching the division title come down to the last regular season game last year.

ray nichkee's picture

Right now the schedule looks like if they sqeak out the first half with a winning record they can coast into the playoffs but every year is a surprise/unpredictable with injuries and player uprisings etc. The only thing I know is that the packers will be be prepared and ready to take on the seahawks weather they win or lose. Can't wait. Cow on the otherhand thinks the pack don't stand a chance. Cow=douschebag. If everybody was cow this franchise would not be in green bay.

If nothing else the negativity takes away the boring off season BS. To still be sulking around in your pajama's 4 months after the season must really suck. Glad I'm not in some people's shoes.
