I predict the Packers will finish the season at 12-4. With that record, the Packers will win the division and host a play-off game. The Packers could easily slip up at Arizona or home to the Cowboys or Bears. However, they could surprise and win in Minnesota or Chicago or home on Monday Night Football against the Ravens.

I would settle for a record that wins the division and would be ecstatic with a record of 12-4 or better. Then again, I would be okay with any record that includes two beat downs of the Vikings by a combined score of 100-0.

  • If Aaron Rodgers stays healthy, he will win the MVP award.
  • Greg Jennings will do the first Lambeau Leap this year.
  • Calvin Johnson will catch four touchdown passes against the Pack.
  • Charles Woodson will lead the NFL in interceptions.
  • Cutting Anthony Smith will haunt the Packers after Atari Bigby goes down with an injury.
  • Aaron Rodgers will lead the Packers to two 4th quarter comeback victories.
  • Last week's Sports Illustrated cover featuring Aaron Rodgers will not be the last Packer cover this season.
  • Ryan Grant will rush for a minimum of 1,500 yards and 10 touchdowns.
  • The Packers' defense will finish the year ranked in the top five in total defense.
  • Mike McCarthy will win the Coach of the Year award.
  • Mike McCarthy will be holding up the Lombardi trophy at season's end.

  • If Aaron Rodgers stays healthy, he will be in the top three in MVP voting at the end of the year.
  • I will be in the stands at Lambeau for at least the Bears, Vikings and Ravens games. I also will be in St. Louis for the Rams game.
  • Desmond Bishop will end the season as a starter.
  • I will turn my back when Brett Favre runs onto Lambeau Field. I will NOT boo him because of what he accomplished in the Green and Gold, but I cannot see him emerge from the tunnel wearing purple.
  • Brett Favre will be booed - long and loud.
  • Brett Favre will not care.
  • Jermichael Finley will lead the team in touchdown passes.
  • A.J. Hawk will be unfairly labeled a bust. I love Hawk because he defines what a football player should be. I hate Hawk because his wife is smokin' hot.
  • The Packers will host at least 1 play-off game.
  • The Packers' success will prove Ted Thompson is able to build a team.

I'm sure many people will disagree with my prognostications, but who gives a fuck. If Aaron Rodgers goes down with an injury, the Packers' season is over and a top five draft pick awaits the new general manager in April. If everything goes according to plan, another Return to Titletown parade awaits fans in February.
