I'm sure we are getting the first game of the season against the Packers.

No defending Superbowl Champion has lost the opening game. To continue this streak the NFL will give Green Bay the Bears to open with. Just my opinion.

I think the SuperBowl champions always start the season playing the loser of the Championship Game,
e.g - 2007 colts (SB champs) vs saints ( lost to bears in NFCCG)

2010 - Saints defending SB champs played vikes who lost in NFCCG, just the way I've seen it anyway.
Doesnt change the fact that we need to dismantle the team we are playing against, no matter who it is

Just me, but I'd prefer not to play GB opening game- then again we have to play them and that might be the best time, weather- their Offense not being in full sync, but yeah I'd prefer an easier opening week. It's nice to get off to a good start and let your team play themselves into rhythm. IMHO

I could see Packers vs Bears opening game, repeat last year NFCCG and it s one of NFLs longest rivalry, I'd like the Saints to start easy with the Colts around Halloween

I'll the a "W" as many times as possible against anyone. If avoiding Green Bay first game of the season increases that change of getting a win somewhere else, I'll take it!

I actually want Green Bay. We've had success against them in the past and being that they're the Superbowl Champs... beating them would be a big confidence booster and would set the tone for our season. If we lost, well... we lost to the Superbowl Champs and should be a learning experience for a possible playoff matchup.
