As a longtime Packer fan and shareholder, I'm always rooting for Green Bay. Favre burned through a LOT of goodwill, so even though part of me wants to see him fail, I'm sure he'll give the Jets a few extra wins.

The Pack have a decent O-line and a solid running game. Al Harris is suspect in the secondary. The wild card is the receivers. Did Brett make average receivers look great, or were they really that good all on their own? My bet is that Driver and Jennings both have a good year. As for the QB, I'm not about to say Rodgers is better than Brett ... but I'll also bet you that he won't throw as many risky passes. His TD/INT ratio will be a lot better than Brett's ever was.

The Jets are almost an unknown quantity to me. I know they have Coles at WR. I know Bubba Franks went up there. But that's about all I know. And regardless, I don't see any way the Jets win their division. Brady is gonna eat Favre for breakfast twice a year. Favre is now the SECOND best QB in his division. I don't think that's ever been the case.

I think he's in for a rude awakening. The AFC is a LOT tougher than the NFC.

So here's my wild guess:

Green Bay: 10-6, NFC North champs, just edging out Minnesota. We win a first-round playoff game but bow out in the divisional round.

Jets: 8-8 and miss the playoffs.

I agree with the above post....I think the Packers will be lucky to go 9-7 and the Jets will break at 8-8....I lived near GB for 19 years and I love that city, the Packers, and I loved Favre. I still love him and have alot of respect for him (although I think both sides in this whole matter have acted horribly). I hope he does well with the Jets. I want to see him succeed.

Brett Favre was the reason we won some games last year. However he wasn't not solely responsible for 13-3. We have a top defense, a great young RB and some fine WR's. It takes more than just a good QB to win games. After all who threw two picks in the NFC championship game?

To answer the question Green Bay will go 10-6 and the Jets will go 8-8

The Packers are a good team all around. They have a good young defense and good receivers but their success depends on QB play this year, I think. They're in a weak division so they should do well but I'm so turned off by their management about how they handled the "Favre" thing and SOME of their "know it all" fans on here slamming Favre that I'd love to see them go 6-10 and miss the playoffs, I wonder if the same "know it all" fans would still take it easy on this redicilous front office?

both teams will be 8-8. Mainly because there are better teams in their respective divisions. I expect minnesota to win the NFC North and Detroit possibly finishing 2nd and I expect the Pats and the Bills to fight it out atop the AFC East.

I'm going with the Jets here. The Packers are probably really divided over this whole issue and it'll carry on for a while with the team and mgmt. The media won't let them forget it. But it all hinges on Rodgers. If he can put all this aside in his mind and come out and really play, the Packers could surprise us all. I don't know a lot about the Jets but my husband says they have the potential to be really good and if Favre is still good, it could be just what they need. Neither will be in the Super Bowl or even the playoffs though.

I'm not going to give them a hard time. They did what was best for this team, both this season and for the long term.
