Thursday Cheese Curds: Projecting the Packers’ performance for 2022

Guessing who’s going to be good in 2022 is pointless, harmless fun.

Syndication: Journal Sentinel MARK HOFFMAN/MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL / USA TODAY NETWORK

It’s May and sports media has nothing else to do, so it’s time to start projecting roles.

We can’t be too hard on the Take Industrial Complex. The NFL is still months away from meaningful games, so if you want to talk about the sport, you’ve more or less got no other option than to just guess at what you think will happen this season. So guess we will.

And that guessing process can be interesting. Our first headline today focuses on some of the unique talents Devonte Wyatt brings to the Packers’ defense. The possibility of pairing those tantalizing attributes with Kenny Clark’s speed and power is too good to ignore.

Just remember to take it all with a grain of salt. Anybody can look good in shorts and a t-shirt, and in the land of potential and hypotheticals everyone has unlimited upside. But when the reps are real, we’ll find out very quickly how much of our projection was wasted.
