Calm down, Packers fans.
The second half of yesterday's game against the Colts was not great. Wasn't even good. It did seem like Indianapolis was playing some inspired football, but you'd like to think that the Packers are good enough where they could overcome something like that. Well, Sunday they didn't. It doesn't get any
easier as the Packers head to Houston on Sunday to play the currently undefeated Texans. There;s a very realistic chance that Green bay drops to 2-4, but even then, still don't panic. The season is progressing, but there's still plenty of season left. The Packers still have 11 games left, and they're not all that different of a team than last year. Of course, defenses have adjusted, but Mike McCarthy will make adjustments too. I think a 10-6 record will get Green Bay into the playoffs. That means going 8-3 over the last 11 games. The non-conference schedule through the end of the season, especially after Houston this week, is not especially tough. St. Louis, Jacksonville, Arizona, Tennesse and the New York Giants are left, as well as the Bears and two games against both Minnesota and Detroit. I think the Packers will be favored in 10 of those games. And with all five games coming after the bye week. I feel even better about the Packers in those games. Calm down Packers fans. It's going to be ok.
