By now, everyone has surely had a chance to chew on every team’s, including the Green Bay Packers‘, upcoming schedule (see below or click here) for the 2013 season. “Experts” have weighed in left and right, forecasting how far each team will go.

But what about the fans?

What does the Packers Nation feel this season will bring? Rarely does anyone care about what the fans think but we here at lombardiave want to hear from you!

Packers fans, like Curt Cozad, love the team. But how do you realistically think the team will finish in 2013? Let us know.

Whether it’s ESPN or CNNSI, everyone seems to have their own opinions going into any given season regardless of the sport. Some teams have seemingly perennial aspirations every year while others just haven’t had much of anything for a while. While some of these opinions can get somewhat tiring or old, it at least gives us a reason to watch. Sure Sportscenter and NFL Network have become much more interactive regarding polls as to how fans think their team will do, but do they really allow fans to voice an opinion or simply be counted as a vote for a grand tally at the end of a program?

Personally, I’m looking at a 12-4 season with another NFC North Division crown and a first round bye as the second seed in the NFC.

It’s difficult to be unbiased bleeding green and gold, but I did try to be as realistic as possible. I try to end my predictions at the end of the regular season because as we all know, the playoffs are a completely different animal altogether.

Overall, I wanted to give our loyal readers an opportunity to sound off. Even we, as writers, get wrapped up into a lot of predictions and stories that we forget about the interaction with fans.

So this particular piece is solely for you, Packers Nation.

    I agree with your 12 & 4 – and they will open the regular season with wins over both SF & Wash. Also. I predict their first possession against the Niners will have three first downs with all running plays, eat up a bunch of clock & have the Niners rocking back on their heels! Hoes that for gutsy?

    • RayRivard

      That’s gutsy, but it sure would be great. Love your optimism.

  • RyansDad

    First possession ends on a TD, of course.

    I think 12-4 . It all depends on the DEE-FENCE! If we can be a top 5 defense, we could win it all!
