What the hell do I look like to you - Mel Kuiper?
But if you're going to be all pissy about it I'll just point out that predictions are a mug's racket, given that we don't know how the season's going to play out. On paper the Packers look like a 12-4 team to me, but that's assuming the continued health of Aaron Rogers; if the bearded one blows out a knee or breaks an arm, I still think they've got enough juice to finish on the happy side of .500 - but just barely.
So - having noted the pointlessness of this kind of granular handicapping, I'll go ahead and do it anyway:
Sun., Sept. 13 Chicago Bears (W)
Sun., Sept. 20 Cincinnati Bengals (W)
Sun., Sept. 27 @ St. Louis Rams (W)
Mon., Oct. 5 @ Minnesota Vikings (L)
Sun., Oct. 18 Detroit Lions (W - may set NFL record for most lopsided win, breaking the Bears legendary 73-0 ass-stomping of the Redskins in the 1940 title game)
Sun., Oct. 25 @ Cleveland Browns (W)
Sun., Nov. 1 Minnesota Vikings (W)
Sun., Nov. 8 @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (L)
Sun., Nov. 15 Dallas Cowboys (W)
Sun., Nov. 22 San Francisco 49ers (W)
Thurs., Nov. 26 @ Detroit Lions (W)
Mon., Dec. 7 Baltimore Ravens (L - Joe Flacco runs wild)
Sun., Dec. 13 @ Chicago Bears (W)
Sun., Dec. 20 @ Pittsburgh Steelers (L)
Sun., Dec. 27 Seattle Seahawks (W)
Sun., Jan. 3 @ Arizona Cardinals (W)
There's your 12-4, right there.
