Fan optimism is usually at its peak in July, but former Green Bay Packer and current NFL analyst James Jones has taken that optimism to a while new level.
During a segment on NFL Network, Jones broke down the 2018 Packers schedule and predicted the team would finish the regular season 16-0.
While fans would love to see that kind of result, most realize it’s pipe dream that has little to no chance of happening.
Jones, however, really thinks it could happen.
His reasoning includes the return of a healthy Aaron Rodgers, but it also goes beyond pure bias. Jones likes the pieces the Packers put around the quarterback as well.
