    Wins are never guarenteed. Any team can win or lose on any day depending on what happens.

    I have been a die-hard Bears fan for the past 40 years (since I was 6) and since 2010, I’ve slowly come to the Green & Yellow side. With that being said, I just don’t feel these guys have the drive within themselves to take it all. I miss their “go get ‘em and take it all” souls they had within themselves as a team in the 2009 and 2010 seasons.

    Maybe next year.

    Packers will repeat as NFC North champions, and win the Super Bowl.

    ummm, no robert, you will not repeat as NFC champs and the only bowl you will sniff is the toilet bowl. Things ebb and flow and I’m sorry to say that the Vikings are/will be getting better while your pack are going to take a step or two back next season together with a pretty hard schedule. if you are going to win another super bowl, it better be this year, but i don’t see this team beating SF or Atl on the road and will have a hard time beating Seattle @ lambeau and will have to earn every inch of a victory against MN this Sat.

    @packkiller…Why do you think the Packers are going to take a step back? Because they lost to the Vikings in Minny? This Packers team only lost 5 games this year and only 1 of those losses was to a non-playoff team. It’s not like the team is old and has a bunch of players that will be leaving.

    Yes, the playoffs are going to be difficult, but when are they easy? Lastly, if you don’t think the Packers can go into to ATL and beat the Falcons, you’re crazy. ATL doesn’t scare anybody with the way they’ve been playing.

    NFC East, AFC North, NFC North and throw in the division and conference winners 49ers and Falcons. That’s about as tough a schedule as you can get! These were all playoff caliber teams this year besides the Browns and Eagles. And both of those teams can still be tough to beat.

    It’s a similar schedule to this year with the AFC South and NFC West plus the Saints and Giants.

    Wins won’t come easy. Go Pack.

    Now that the Bears have fired Lovie Smith, we should follow suit and dump Dom Capers. Then, we hire Lovie. That man does seem to know how to craft a good defense. Maybe the Bears can then hire Capers and we can count on beating the Bears for sometime to follow….

    You got to love Vikings fans. They suck for 50 years, then win a tough game and think they are going someplace. You’ve already lost 4 Super Bowls. How much more punishment do you want? The Pack is playing with 3rd and fourth team defensive people in some positions. If any other team in Football had to deal with the depth at certain positions that we do, they might have 4 or 5 wins.
    This league is aimed at parity. Goodell wants it that way. The Pack has and is overcoming that in spite of being one of the most injured teams in the NFL.
    We will be there whether you want to believe it or not.
    Good luck, you need it!

    That is one heck of a tough schedule. I see only two potentially easy games (Browns/Eagles). But even then, it is the NFL. As for suggestions to can Capers, that’s just silly. He is an extremely accomplished and respected coordinator and it wasn’t him missing tackles or blowing coverage in that mess in Minneapolis. As for packkiller’s simplistic suggestions that the Vikes will continue to rise while the Pack descends, it is true that the NFL “ebbs and flows” but it is no a tide, nor is it remotely predictable. All the analysts thought Detroit would be great this year and look how that turned out. Not to mention that Green Bay is a program with depth, loyalty, and determination and not likely to free-fall like some other NFL teams have been capable of doing. Finally, as a nice consolation for the Green and Yellow faithful, I have heard a number of analysts declare or agree that without AP the Viking would be a 3-win team. So, although we have to stop the beast, his cohorts are less threatening. I don’t think we’ll see a Green Bay team like in the 80s anytime soon.

    Happy New Year!

    To Packkiller:

    The best thing about Viking fans is that they are fair weather fans and bandwagon jumpers. Lets see next week at this time where the teams sit! Typical, you don’t even know the Packer’s schedule; first of all they play Atlanta at home and second they don’t play Seattle at all! Know your facts, I’ll guarantee right now Adrian Peterson will not hit 100 yards next week and Christian Ponder will be sitting freezing his butt off on the sidelines while All-Pro Aaron Rodgers will light it up. Final score: Green Bay 34, Minnesota 13.

    Don’t slag the Viking fans. At least they have more tosay than “Go Pack Go”. They are loyal insightful frans compared to the Cheeseheads, which says it all!

    I’ve been a Packer fan my whole life, growing up in the 70’s and 80’s all my friends where Steeler/Cowboy/Raider fans, so for those Viking fans who are excited over the chance to play in the playoff’s , enjoy the moment you never know what next year will bring, and for the few Packer fans who don’t remember how that felt, cut the Viking fans some slack, the Pack will not fall again this season.

    Next season will address some issues at the WRs and RBs position in terms of production. The main issue is still the defense. The Packers are a draft and develop team focusing on the defense with their first six picks in the 2012 Draft. With that being said, the Packers may have to wait for their picks to pan out for a little maturity in terms of the defense.

    In my opinion, the Packers should still put emphasis on the defense in the 2013 Draft, but not as much in the 2012 Draft.

    Keep feeding Dom Capers quality picks and let Rodgers take care of the offense.

    Who cares about the next season schedule

  18. By Ted on Dec 31, 2012 | Reply

    Oh yeah, they also need DBs who can tackle. That’s it. LOL.

    Hey Schwalm,

    Next time you vainly attempt some semblance of wit, try typing your miniscule ramblings on scratch paper first, then read it aloud and ask yourself if it’s really worth posting before wasting our time here in Packerdom. If you are not a Packer fan (which I’m sure you are not) at least have the courtesy to post something worthy of this blog. I’m sure anything goes on the Vikes blog…but then how many SB’s have they won again?

    Roll on Green Roll on

    Gotta love Viking’s “frans” snooping on the Packer’s website. And by the way, if you can read (which I hope you can), you’d clearly see that the Packers play the Falcons at home next year.

    Capers took his defense from dead last to 11th overall in the league in one year with rookies………..stop saying we need a defense! Vikes D is 15th…….

    Green Bay leads the Vikes in team stats in every single catagory except rushing……..

    and I think both teams stats in the post season speaks for itself!

    GO PACK!

    Head coach needs to get more aggressive in his play calling, especially in the first half, that’s what hindered the “Pack” from beating the “Viks” sunday, until he starts doing that, We’ll not see another super bowl ring

    Unless we make major changes to the defense starting with Capers and getting some tough guys in the defense I don’t see many victories next year. The schedule is loaded with good teams.

  24. By Bob Osterday on Jan 1, 2013 | Reply

    Defensive statistics are worthless. So much of that depends on how the game is going, ie ahead or behind. The facts are the Packers defense is soft against physical teams like San Fran, Seattle, Minnesota…. anybody that has a running game will beat the Packers cause the line backers are horrible and the secondary will not tackle.

    I’m a Wisc. transplant who lives in MN for 30 years. I have never witnessed first hand , the number of fair weathered fans, including their sports writers. They lose 2-3 games and they don’t watch anymore, but when the win 2-3 they’re going to the superbowl. I enjoy the rivalry, but please be real fans or get off the band wagon! In my opinion the Vikes have a great RB but are one dimensional and are still one starting QB and one head coach, not to mention WR’s short of being a total team. You won Sunday even though AP fumbled (not overturned), but now you come to our house. No more cozy, warm dome. The worst fan venue in sports. Thank heavens the TWINS left.

    2013 schedule looks tougher than it is. Steelers, Giants, Ravens, and Dallas aren’t the teams they use to be. Atlanta can’t beat the packers. Redskins, Bengals and 49ers will be tough games. Packers will take the division again and I believe I am being pessimistic if I say 13-3. The offensive line will improve and they will do the same great job in the draft. They are the winningness team in football over the past 3 years and should keep that claim for another three (Hopefully more).
