It's Prediction Time!

I neglected to do this prior to the Badger game last week so figured I'd put both the Packers and Badgers in the same post.

Badgers
Their non-conference schedule is pretty damn weak. They should easily go 4-0 in these games. The Badgers do not play Michigan State and Ohio State this year as both teams are ducking us again. The Badgers should go 5-3 in the Big Ten with losses to Penn St., Michigan and Iowa. The only other game in question is the one at Purdue, but I think the Badgers can take that one.
Prediction: 9-3 and another Capital One Bowl birth.

Packers
Luckily the Packers are in the NFC North which is still one of the worst divisions in football. They could actually go 3-3 in the division and throw in some wins against the 49ers, Bills and Jets and that's 6 wins. I think they can beat the Saints and possibly the Patriots (yes I said that). The Pats defense is terrible and their offense has shown nothing yet. The Pats are not the same team that won those SB any longer, they are on the downswing.
Prediction: 7-9, maybe 8-8 and no playoffs.

Anyone got a problem with these?

Sorry, Pack 5-12 at best. However if you want to track Brett Favre's inexorable (that means unyielding) march toward the interceptions thrown record, click on my web page below!

5-12 huh? Given there are only 16 games in the regular season and you don't even know that, I would say that your opinion is well... stupid.

How do these Viking fans keep finding me?

Oops 5-11. Guess that's my Minnesota math education coming through. (although the Pack looked so horrid this pre-season, I wouldn't be surprised if NFL started them off 0-1 before the season even started as a penalty).

You just never know with the Pack. Yeah, we suck - but then, so does most of our division.

I'll second the 8-8 and say we do well enough to make the dreamers believe for just a moment - right before we implode. Brett retires.

Fade to black.

15-1 for the Pack is my prediction.

You're a riot, SBG.
