So today’s the first game of the season for our beloved Green Bay Packers, and I’d like to hear your thoughts on how the Pack will do this season?

Have they upgraded their defense enough to be considered a legitimate Super Bowl contender? Will Cedric Benson provide an upgrade over Ryan Grant?

Discuss.

    I think their defense hasn’t improved all that much from last year. I don’t know that Benson is an upgrade, but he certainly isn’t worse, so I guess I’ll call it an even trade. I think their offense is just as good as last year, but a harder schedule will probably prevent the regular season dominance of 2011. I also think the Bears and Lions are both going to be pretty good this year. I’m thinking probably 11-5, maybe 12-4, which should win them the North. As for the Superbowl, the one thing I’ve learned over the past few years is that the team who is hot at the end has the best chance (Giants 2011, Packers 2010). The match up I would really like to see is Rodgers V Brady.

    On a side note, my secret girlfriend team, the Arizona Cardinals, needs to lose every game this year and get themselves a QB in next years draft, preferably not another Matt Leinart.

    Benson joined the team later in the preseason, and he may still be learning the offense. He’s got great abilities, so he’ll do fine once in sync with the offensive line.
    Defense is still a question, though I think Ted Thompson made good moves to improve the unit. Jerrel Worthy can be a force. Linebacker setup is better, and I am hoping the secondary learned how to tackle over the offseason.
    Not much for predictions; just hope no injuries. Will make playoffs at very least.
    Also wonder if replacement refs can handle their new jobs.
