The Official 2010 Green Bay Packers Schedule

The 2010 Packers schedule is out and Green Bay will play in four nationally televised games. They will play a Monday night game against the Chicago Bears and three Sunday night games, against the Cowboys, Patriots and Vikings.

The Green Bay Packers open the 2010 Season in Philadelphia against the new-look (no McNabb) Eagles.  Four weeks later, they’ll get to face McNabb and his new team, the Washington Redskins.

The Good:

Only one Monday night game, so the team can stay on a more regular weekly schedule.

Two home games to finish out the season.

The Packers have the 22nd most difficult schedule, based on 2009 team records. Much better outcome than I expected.

The Bad:

Bye week doesn’t come until week 10. No chance for banged up players to heal for games 7, 8 and 9 against the Vikes, Jets and Cowboys.

No Thanksgiving game. (personal preference – nothing makes me happier than GB on Thanksgiving)

    I’m not thrilled with the 4 of 5 road games coming off the bye, but otherwise I’m thrilled with the schedule. I don’t like a Thanksgiving Day game simply because it’s always a road game. And I hate when we play Thursday road games…it’s gotta be murder going into a road game with that short of a rest. If the league would let the Packers host one I’d be all over it. It’ would be so cool to have a Turkey day game in Lambeau.

    Someone needs to explain to me how the Vikings get 3 straight home games in December, and finish up in a dome. I hate to go all “conspiracy theory” here, but it sure seems the league wants to make sure Favre doesn’t have to play in any cold weather, outdoor games. With a lockout looming, they want to milk that cash cow until he gets mastitis.

    Al, For as bad as I was predicting degree of difficulty for 2009, I’ve decide to do an MM this year. “One Game at a Time”
