Packers need to sweep that home schedule 8-0. On the road, I'll be ecstatic if we can manage 4-4. 

Isn't that what Holmgren preached back in the day?  Win at home, split on the road, get a bye.  

It may be different now with only one bye, but still.  That's a record I'd take in an instant.

Yea, I think our home schedule is very favorable, as it was last year. We laid one egg against Philly so that can't happen again. Need to run the table there because this road schedule is daunting af. 

Before FA started I was saying, "well at least we have Tampa and Indy, both have crap at QB." Now, it's Brady and Rivers (and Rivers had his best game of the season last year against Pettine's defense).

If the NFL plays games without fans, that helps the sound levels at minny, at nawlins, at Indy. Detroit  ? yeah, whatever
Tampa might be pumped up a bit this year too, but its never been known as a loud stadium

Will the NFL allow Sven to blow his stoooopid horn in minny ?

All I want is to open the season at home against a crap team for once in my lifetime.

Packers opened vs the bears last year

Yes, but division games are never easy. 

At Bears
Bears
Seahawks (Playoffs year before)
At Jaguars
At Bears
At Seahawks (After they had just won Super Bowl)
At 49ers (After they had just beaten us in the playoffs two consecutive years)
49ers (After they had just beaten us in the playoffs)
Saints (They were a playoff team)
At Eagles (They were a playoff team)
Bears
Vikings
Eagles (They had just made playoffs)
Bears
At Lions
At Panthers (Coming off Super Bowl loss)
Vikings
Falcons

Since 2002, the Packers have had a SINGLE opening season game at home against a non-divisional team that did not make the playoffs the year before. 

7/18 have been against division rivals.
8/11 remaining games came against playoff teams the year before.

I just want a stress-free easy game to start the season at home.  No special game.  No rematch, no division rival game, no tests. 

Give me the Falcons or Panthers at home.

I understand your frustration and thx for doing the legwork on the openers.
But GB is a premiere franchise and the NFL is often counting on the Packers to kick off the season ratings race

So let them open against a crap team … they can still be a premiere franchise!

Why do you guys want to play a weaker team?


Give me a strong team on the road, where both teams are affected by the off-season and are rusty. It’s also like a bye week going into a away game .

"NFL teams don't have much control over the schedule but Packers president Mark Murphy said he made two requests for early in the season that would put them on the road for consecutive weeks at the end of September/beginning of October because of Wisconsin-Notre Dame at Lambeau Field on Oct. 3 and the Ryder Cup the previous week at Whistling Straits "

"For the Wisconsin game we said the facility wasn't available and for the Ryder Cup we requested to be on the road," Murphy said at the combine

Clayton is usually credible so if it's a Lambeau opener, it'll be either the Jags or Titans. Or we open on the road against Rivers or Watson.

Wouldn't be surprised if the Packers are a prime-time opener against the Titans. Battle of the No. 3 and 4 teams last year.

MLF should know how to show down Henry at least. He was great at it when he was his OC

I bet this is cancellation protection. These are the least important games for playoff seeding, so they schedule them first to give flexibility to cancel.

Makes a ton of sense. I won't be shocked if it's the same for everybody.

Weeks 1-4 the opposite conference teams

Weeks 5-6 the same place teams

Weeks 7-9 division games

Weeks 10-13 vs. same division games

Weeks 14-16 division games.

That way you can cancel up to 6 weeks and have a really fair 10 game season.

It is
And reportedly they synced up the byes too so they can abbreviate the season and still be fair to all
