Since Bayes produces the same answer for this problem, you can do it by Bayes. If you insist on using the predictive distribution to get the Bayes estimatewhich is easily avoidedthen that is Negative Binomial. So you _can_ involve the Negative Binomial, but it isn't at all necessary.

Prof. Daniel,
Thank you! I think this is beginning to make sense.
