Packers Schedule 2009

Lets take a look at the Packers 2009 schedule:

Week 1 Chicago Bears
Week 2 Cincinnati Bengals
Week 3 @ St. Louis Rams
Week 4 @ Minnesota Vikings
Week 5 Open Date
Week 6 Detroit Lions
Week 7 @ Cleveland Browns
Week 8 Minnesota Vikings
Week 9 @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Week 10 Dallas Cowboys
Week 11 San Francisco 49ers
Week 12 @ Detroit Lions
Week 13 Baltimore Ravens
Week 14 @ Chicago Bears
Week 15 @ Pittsburgh Steelers
Week 16 Seattle Seahawks
Week 17 @ Arizona Cardinals

Starting off in Week 1 the Pack have a prime time slot with Kyle Orton Jay Cutler and Da' Bears which should start the season on a very high note. The Packers and their new look 3-4 defense will have an opportunity to start the season at least 3-1 going into the bye in week 5. Week 8 begins a tough stretch of games with the Vikings, Bucs, Cowboys, and finishing up with cake walk of the San Francisco 49ers.

With a quick rundown of the list, I've projected the Packers to be 8-8. Granted, this is a lot of ifs (reminds me a lot of another team). Can the Packers make a good adjustment to the 3-4? Will Ted Thompson ever have sizzle? Can Aaron Rodgers be consistent?

this is definitely a soft schedule to start the season. This is especially good as you mentioned to try and get the 3-4 kinks worked out and hopefully not get buried early
