Season preview: Our writers predict the Packers' record

Pete Dougherty: 7-9

Coach Mike McCarthy has a better team this year than last season's 8-8 club and could challenge for a wild-card spot in the mediocre NFC. But the lack of a running game could doom the postseason chances.

Rob Demovsky: 8-8

The Packers are appreciably better than last year in perhaps all but one category: the running game. But that's too important an area to be deficient in, and it's going to cost them a playoff berth.

Mike Vandermause: 9-7

A solid defense will put the Packers in position to win enough low-scoring games to claim a wild-card playoff berth in the weak NFC. With a suspect running game, Brett Favre will once again be called on to spark the offense. If Favre keeps his interceptions to a minimum, the Packers will have a fighting chance.

Tom Pelissero: 7-9

Is this offense good enough for the Packers to take the next step? I don't think so, and against this schedule, an 0-3 start is absolutely possible. I'll even give Detroit the upper hand for second place.
