Packers vs. Panthers Week 2 Game Predictions from AllGreenBayPackers.com

GAME PREDICTIONS
Week 2: Green Bay Packers vs. Carolina Panthers
Name Record To-Date This Week’s Pick Score Prediction
Kris Burke 1-0 Green Bay Packers 27-13
Cam Newton continues to emerge, and the Williams/Stewart combo for Carolina keeps them in the game until the Packers pull away late. Packers initially struggle in what should be a gimme game.
“Jersey” Al Bracco 1-0 Green Bay Packers 34-10
Panthers RT Otah is out, starting an undrafted rookie there now. Say hello to Mr. Matthews… Packers D anxious to win some respect back and CMIII leads the way. Packers offense does what it does – score.
Adam Czech 0-1 Green Bay Packers 31-13
Cam Newton’s father took the blame for gifts his son was (allegedly) given at Auburn. But Cam’s daddy won’t be able to help him against the pass rush of Clay Matthews, or the defensive gameplan of Dom Capers. A bit ragged at times, but the Packers roll.
Thomas Hobbes 1-0 Green Bay Packers 27-10
I’m not completely convinced that Cam Newton is “422-yards” good, and if anything he might come in overconfident (I also would like to thank the Cardinals secondary for making this not a trap game as well).  Add that to the loss of two huge playmakers in middle linebacker Jon Beason and right tackle Jeff Otah (who would have been across Clay Matthews) and I think the Packers win this one.
Zach Kruse 0-1 Green Bay Packers 38-17
Cam Newton is brimming with confidence after his 422-yard debut, but Dom Capers will show him things Sunday he’s never seen at any level of football. Expect a couple of turnovers from him. There’s also no reason to think Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense will be derailed by a Panthers defense that lacks playmakers after MLB Jon Beason was lost for the season. Packers cruise to a three-touchdown win.
Chad Toporski 1-0 Green Bay Packers 37-13
Cam Newton had an impressive game last week, but he’ll be coming back down to earth against an elite defense. Capers will confuse him early and often. Oh, and Matt Flynn will be closing things out.

    Jarrett Bush will be our Nickle back today. That means he’ll be on the field about 85-90% of the snaps, unless the can run on our nickle sets…

    I’m guessing we’ll be seeing Collins or Burnett over the top of Bush on every damn snap.. Or else this game could be closer than everyone thinks.
