Their work is certain to have a sizable impact

Mike from St. Louis Park, MN

I just saw some news on a certain CB. Was wondering if Spoff took the rest of the week off?

Ha, nope, but I’m writing a few columns in a row because I’m taking time off at the end of this week and through next, so you get a little more of me before a big dose of Wes.

The Packers’ schedule does not look so bad when looking at difficulty based on last year’s records, especially compared to last year. What say you?

Record-wise, the schedule is easier. Last season the Packers played 10 games against teams that made the playoffs the previous year. This year it’s seven. Plus, this year has four games against teams that won four games or fewer compared to just one last year. It’s a substantial shift, statistically speaking.

Speaking of schedules, how lucky are the Steelers? They do not have to leave the Eastern time zone the entire season. That is wild, and so very advantageous.

Three of their non-division road trips are to Indy, Philly and Buffalo. That would be like the Packers making non-division road trips to Duluth, Madison and Ishpeming.

Insiders, now that schedule is out what do you see as the toughest stretch? There sure are some strange quirks. I agree the Christmas game has me scratching my head. What are your thoughts?

Three straight road games is a tough stretch no matter what, especially when one of the first two is a night game, because the turnaround time to next week’s flight is that much shorter. The only saving grace is none of the three is a long trip.

What is there to write about this time of year? Draft and rookie minicamp are over. Seems like a “dead” time of year.

It’s slow but not as dead as the period from mid-June until the start of training camp. The media will be hearing from assistant coaches over the next few days, and then OTAs start next week.

Jeff from Indian Lake, NY

Hey guys, just saw the news about Jaire Alexander’s extension! Well-deserved for him and it also clears up some cap space for this year. Any chance there’s something left on the pass-rusher tree out back that we could scoop up now? Or will we have to wait until June / training camp? Imagine another De’Vondre Campbell-level impact!

Hitting on an acquisition like that two years in a row is a lot to ask. But the Packers do now have some more cap space to make a move if they feel the right fit is available.
