Packers Not Nearly as Befuddled with Schedule as Rest of Us

Aaron Rodgers

The Green Bay Packers 2016 schedules is… weird.

That’s about the most accurate (or nicest) thing you can say about it.

Particularly interesting is the week 4 bye. That gives the Packers the first and earliest bye on the slate. That could be seen as a negative for a team that is consistently injured more than most.

In theory, at later bye allows a team to get at least somewhat healthy for the stretch run and/or the playoffs.

That’s not the only strange part, though. Just the most notable.

Fortunately, the guys who have to live with this schedule aren’t too concerned. The general consensus among the Packers appeared to be either “the schedule is fine,” or “meh?”

No concern there.

Nothing for us to be concerned about then, right?

    Strength of Schedule is fine, but the logistics are weird. Fourth year in a row Packers open the season on the road….and it’s the early game in J-ville, so figure on dark jerseys and the sunny sideline. Yikes. Then how about another road game to inaugurate the Chilidome-think that will be intense? Week 4 bye has no redeeming features, and is the second time in four years we’re assigned that dreaded slot (2013). The two intervening seasons had weeks 7+9…….League office conspiracy? When do the Packers get to open at home and have a late season bye?
    Midseason schedule looks like a baseball team with a homestand followed by a three game road trip. Only one other team has three road games in a row.
    Quirky. Should be able to pull off 11-5, but wish we didn’t have to wait 5 months just to get started. Maybe T2 needs that much time to find ILB help.
