Predictions: Packers vs. Steelers

Aaron Rodgers

Steffen: First of all, I just want to say that this is truly a great Super Bowl matchup. Football fans should be thrilled (apologies to Chicago, Minnesota and New Jersey). There isn’t a single bit of analysis I can offer that you haven’t already heard. “Pittsburgh has more experience, blah, blah, blah. Aaron Rodgers is […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Bears

Devin Hester

Steffen: If you’re like me, this past week of hype has been cringe-inducing. On one hand, it’s pretty sweet to have just about everyone on TV or the radio gushing about Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Of course, there are some detractors (Colin Cowherd spent most of Friday morning declaring Rodgers no better […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Falcons

Roddy White

Shawn: The Green Bay Packers couldn’t have asked for anything better than a second shot at the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome. It’s been around 15 degrees in Green Bay, so I’d be pumped about getting out of here and playing in a dome if I were a member of the Packers. This year’s […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Bears

Devin Hester

Steffen: Apparently, the Chicago Bears will be “playing to win” this week. This was announced at different times by coach Lovie Smith and several of his players, this week. Each time they declared their intentions, it was with an air of “Well, now what do you think about that?” As if this decision suddenly empowered […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Giants

Justin Tuck

Steffen: Many are expecting the New York Giants to fall apart this week after a humiliating defeat at the hands of Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles in week 15. I don’t see it playing out that way. The Giants are a veteran team and they have a lot to play for. This is essentially […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Patriots

Tom Brady

Steffen: The New England Patriots ought to temporarily change their name to the New England Buzzsaw, because that moniker has been lobbed their way a lot the last few weeks. They dropped 45 in consecutive weeks against the Lions and Jets before clownining the Bears 36-7, last Sunday. They are without a doubt the hottest […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Lions

Drew Stanton

Shawn: The talk locally has centered around whether the game against the New York Giants or the Chicago Bears constitutes the must-win game for the Green Bay Packers. The easy answer, of course, is that neither do, that the must-win game is actually this weekend against the Detroit Lions. A loss this week would likely […]

Predictions: Packers vs. 49ers

Troy Smith

Shawn: The San Francisco 49ers are still in contention to win their pathetic division, and they are coming off probably their best game of the season. So, they will at least start this game with the belief that they can play with the Green Bay Packers. It will be up to the Packers to dispel […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Falcons

Roddy White

Shawn: I’ve said all year the Green Bay Packers would win this week’s game, and if anything, I believe even more strongly in that prediction now. The Atlanta Falcons are 8-2, sure. Everyone seems to have forgotten that they beat the Saints after Garrett Hartley missed two easy field goals that would have won the […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Vikings

Sarah: Round two of Brett Favre vs. the Green Bay Packers unfolds Sunday afternoon at the Metrodome. The first round ended with a defeated old man limping off Lambeau Field following a 28-24 loss. Will anything be different this time around? Probably not. The Minnesota Vikings’ season has been a letdown, to say the least. […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Cowboys

Shawn: There is much concern regarding the Green Bay Packers tilt with the Dallas Cowboys, for two reasons: 1) the Cowboys were so thoroughly humiliated last week, their collective manhood debased, that most feel they have to respond with a better game this week, and 2) this is the week before the bye for the […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Jets

Steffen: Okay, Green Bay Packers fans, enjoy these last few moments of euphoria. The Packers defeated Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings last week. They did it. Let that soak in a little bit more… …and now back to reality. The reality is the Packers are about to face one of the best teams in […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Vikings

Sarah: The key to this game will be defense. For both teams. Whether Minnesota and Douche Bag of the Century Jared Allen can knock Aaron Rodgers down as many times as they did last season, and whether the Packers can slow down Brett Favre in his second return to Lambeau Field as a Viking. Because […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Dolphins

Steffen: Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy and general manager Ted Thompson may not know it, but Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins may be the most important game of their careers. Surely they’d tell you that it’s just another game on the schedule and they may even believe that, but make no mistake […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Redskins

Brady: The time is now for Aaron Rodgers. All the preseason talk about his validity as a league MVP candidate will be put to the test starting now, as it seems apparent that nobody on the Green Bay Packers defense can stay healthy. What’s the easiest way Rodgers can help the Packers’ defense? Scoring points. […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Lions

Steffen: After what feels like decades of ineptitude (oh wait, it has been decades) the Detroit Lions’ offseason roster moves had many prognosticators predicting marked improvement over last season’s two-win season. Indeed the Lions are an improved team. Led by rookie dynamo Jahvid Best, the offense has more firepower and fellow rookie defensive tackle/tank Ndamukong […]

Predictons: Packers vs. Bears

Steffen: It’s hard for me to say this, but I think Packer nation just has to accept it — the Chicago Bears are better than they were last year. They are a different, more confident team. They are playing faster on a defense that features a refurbished Brian Urlacher and the freakish abilities of Julius […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Bills

Steffen: The Vegas oddsmakers have the Green Bay Packers favored by how much again? 13.5 points?  There are plenty of folks out there who’d tell you that isn’t nearly enough. Don’t count me among them. Like last week, this game will be much closer than it needs to be. Obviously, the biggest question mark for […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Seahawks

T.J. Houshmandzadeh

Monty: Following a disappointing loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Green Bay Packers’ mettle will be tested. Fortunately, they’re playing in Lambeau Field against a pretty bad Seattle Seahawks team, this week. The Seahawks are coming off an embarrassing loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and while that may sound familiar, this Seattle team lacks […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Steelers

Pressuring Roethlisburger will be key

Steffen: The Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers are heading in opposite directions. The Packers are riding high, winning their last five games in a row. The Steelers have succumbed to injuries and in-fighting and have been loser of their last five contests. On paper, the Packers should dominate, but as we know, football, […]
