Anything else will result in another disappointing year.
As the Packers prepare for a challenging opener against the Vikings, here are five bold predictions for the upcoming season.
5. Romeo Doubs wins NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year
Romeo Doubs checked every box over the summer, impressing on the practice field and then in the preseason. He has many traits that can’t be taught. Doubs is a great athlete and makes gaining separation look easy. He also makes a habit of catching tough 50/50 balls.
Doubs had a few drops in the preseason, but this is correctable.
As he continues to earn Aaron Rodgers’ trust, it will be just a matter of time before he becomes one of his top targets.
The departure of Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling creates opportunity for the receivers on the roster, including Doubs.
Continue to impress, and Doubs could have a huge season and put himself in contention for the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award.
