The Green Bay Packers 2009 schedule is out.  Some cool facts...

The Packers schedule is considered the third softest overall, based on last year's records of their opponents.

Green Bay will play the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving day, the 19th time these teams have played on Thanksgiving (they played every year from 1951-1963).

The next game after Thanksgiving will be their fourth National TV game, a Monday Night contest versus the Baltimore Ravens.

The last fourth of the season will be a quiet one at Lambeau, with only one home game on the schedule.
