On paper this looks like a challenging assortment of teams .. not a lot of pushovers. Hopefully the schedule makers will be as easy on us as possible. I'd be happy with another 10-6.

Packers aren't playing west of Dallas this regular season

Packers will play a regular season game in the stadium hosting the Super Bowl, 3rd year in a row. SF, Houston, minny

(4) Road games against 2016 playoff participants: Dallas, Pitt, Atl, Det.

Packers play road games at both of the traditional Thanksgiving hosts, Det and Dallas

Read somewhere the rumor is that NE will host KC in the opener. Could easily mean that GB will travel to Dallas or Atlanta for the SNF opener, which I don't like

I want a challenge opening week. None of the teams on that list are as bad as the Seahawks in 2014 or the Niners in 2013. So I want a team like the Ravens, Steelers or Seahawks opening week. Or the Falcons. I want an ultimate offensive test week 1 to see where we stand.

Sports radio somewhere today was talking about the possible opening weekend marquee games.

As someone noted, NE hosting KC on the Thursday night opener. Atlanta is opening a new stadium, so the thinking was that ATL might get the opening weekend SNF game. Potentially hosting either GB or Dallas

ATL has had 3 construction delays already. Speculation is they open the new palace in week 2 just like the vikes did - gives them an extra buffer

The Saints would be a good matchup ... we played them in a Lambeau a few years ago to kick off the season and it was a great offensive explosion. Randall Cobb stole the show!

Week 1 is a good judge of where we stand?

Give me the prime matchups half way through the season once the rust and kinks have been mostly sorted out.

He was an UDFA DB that GB was trying to develop, spent some time with the Raiders and now Ravens. Bigger guy, but kinda stiff

We start slow. Give me the Browns.

I want to play the good teams late, like we did with Seattle last year or NE in 2014.

Sounds like GB will be opening the Falcons new stadium....but in Week 2 on SNF. That's back to back years for GB doing that

They're definitely playing on Thanksgiving too, either @ Detroit or @ Dallas.

Please have the Bye week around Week 7-8
