What is the expected win-loss record for the Packers this season?

It is a new era for the Green Bay Packers, who have found themselves in a position yet again to start an unproven quarterback after moving on from a future Hall of Famer.

Jordan Love is running the show now with Aaron Rodgers in New York, and there are plenty of questions about just how well he will perform. That leads to some less optimal predictions about how the Packers will fare in 2023.

One such prediction comes from Bleacher Report's Alex Ballentine, who noted some concerns on both sides of the ball.

Ballentine would sum everything up with the following: "Pass-rush depth concerns and a young receiving corps paired with an inexperienced quarterback will make it hard to find consistency every week."

It is hard to argue these points. Green Bay has seen valuable experience on offense and defense depart, and that puts more than a few players in a position to take on significant roles.

Gone are Rodgers, Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb, Robert Tonyan, Jarran Reed, and Dean Lowry. In their place are Love, Romeo Doubs, Christian Watson, Jayden Reed, Luke Musgrave, Devonte Wyatt, and T.J. Slaton. While this is a youth movement across the board, these types of wholesale changes taking place during one offseason can lead to some less-than-stellar results on the field.

Taking all of this into consideration, this leads to the projected record for 2023 being an underwhelming 7-10.

While this would not be a good result in the win-loss department, this is looking at the situation at hand from a one-track mind. It is about the process of how they get to that record. If it is a seven-win season filled with plenty of bad plays and miscommunication without any signs of improvement, it would be a major cause for concern.

But if there are tangible positive signs from this group, including developing and improving as the season goes along, it would still be successful campaign despite the losing record.
