Official Green Bay Packers 2010 Schedule: The Good and The Bad

Jersey Al BraccoSenior Analyst IApril 20, 2010

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.

Comments on the  Good and the Bad of the schedule below…

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 seven, eight and nine against the Vikes, Jets and Cowboys.

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