I think the biggest question in this game is the flags... I'm SURE the Seahawks DBs will test the refs and see if they're willing to keep throwing flags, or if they do as they have in the past, gotten used to PI and not throw the flag on them every time.


Honestly I think I'd kind of love AND hate this idea... but Packers are working from behind, Rodgers throws a hail mary pass... it's not caught but out comes 3 flags for a clear PI call.... moves Packers into scoring and either a short pass or Lacy bulling his way into the end zone for the touchdown and the win. [grin1]


Of course it'd be nice to not need any flag help to win [-o<

I expect a loss in this game just like last year in San Francisco. We'll play a good game and get screwed on a few calls. I want to see us run the ball on them and keep moving the chains. That team absolutely destroyed the so called greatest offense ever assembled last year in the Super Bowl. To take them lightly and expect a win is pretty foolish.

Make no mistake about it, I certainly want the Packers to come out victorious (and healthy). I just do not see how they can beat Seattle Seahawks.

Seahawks good running game vs Packers weak run defense. edge Seahawks.

Seahawks best back four secondary vs Packers high flying passing game. edge Seahawks.


Seahawks are a more physical and punishing team than the Packers and that crowd is gonna stifle the no-huddle far more than it will do good against the Seahawks.


The only thing I'm seeing from fans saying Packers will win is ... cuz they will! Quite a bit of koolaid there, which hey no issue there. I just am curious on the HOW they will win. You know, other than by scoring at least one point more than the enemy lol

Precisely.

The biggest thing the Pack has got going for it, besides Rodgers, is that everything is against them.
That makes the Packers very dangerous.

The Packers are deemed the lesser team, the lesser team can always find somewhere soft to attack.

Seattle also has a fairly weak offensive line and their running game I think is a bit overrated. Our defense overall actually looks like it matches up pretty well with their offense. Their line is really weak on the interior where we are weak vs the run (we have the adv there as far as pass rushing), they are strong at the T positions but that's where we are strong on D at OLB. The big issue for us is going to be if our offensive line can hold up because we've got the horses on the outside and in the backfield to do some damage no matter what D they face. Seattle is certainly the most talented team on the schedule this year but GB rarely gets blown out so I'm expecting it to be an exciting game win or lose.

I expect a wide open scoring fest in contrast to the last time we were there. The officials are going to be calling all those illegal contact penalties early in the season, if not the whole season, but for sure in the beginning. That will hurt defenses like Seattle's whose strength is their secondary.

Our strength on O is magnified while there's is descreased. I like that setup.

Harvin is a Packer killer and I expect him to go off in this game.

40+ from Seattle on us... I just don't know how many we can put on them.

Gimme a 48-47 Packers win ala October 17, 1983. Not sure we'll get it but that's what I want.

Who has a better game running the ball?

Lynch or Lacy?

There will also be two quarters of lulls, but we'll have a chance at the end.

I tried to feel those "positive waves" [obscure cinema reference], but I just can't.

Seattle 38, GB 17.

Rodgers sacked seven times. Seattle has time of possession by nearly 10 minutes.

Sorry, dudes, its going to be a 6-10 year.

The Packers will move the ball and score on the Seattle defense. I'm confident of that. Rodgers will throw a couple of TDs and Lacy/Starks will score one. A few field goals. If the Packers defense can just be average, the Packers can win this game. If they suck, the Seahawks will win by 7-10 points.

I'll actually be at the game, sitting in what's called the "Bird's Nest."

Hoping for nothing but the best! Let's see how loud this stadium really is.

Packers tar and feather the defending Super Bowl champion Seachickens, 27 - 24.

I can see the Packers winning this game. These are different teams then when we last played them. I believe the Packer D will be much improved over last season. And Aaron Rodgers and Lacy are healthy.
I think we are in for a pleasant surprise.

Seattle lost several players in FA. The secondary is good but can they play the physical game without getting the flags? They will be the one team the officials will be watching the most. If I'm the Packers OC I'm running every kind of route that would create contact and make that secondary play off our receivers.
Our offense is better than theirs and I would say by quite a bit. McCarthy has been gearing for this game and preparing for the noise. If they can handle that and their secondary has to play straight up Rodgers will do the rest.


If the D plays decent against the run we win. I like our chances when rushing the QB a lot. Too many pass rushers against what I see is an average Oline. This will not be the best receiver group our corners and DB's will face considering what Chicago and Detroit have in our division so it will be interesting to see if we handle them in this game. I think we can.

I don't know how the Packers can stop Seattle's running game. The Seahawks are probably going to control the clock, which will keep the Packers' offense off the field. Seattle's offensive line is vulnerable on the edges, though. Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers could have big games. That's the key to stopping their offense on third downs and getting them off the field.

I think the Pack will play them well. In fact, I think they'll cover the spread. I suspect they'll lose in heart-breaking fashion, though.

If Guion-Hawk-B. Jones can defend the middle, we should do well.

That is one GIGANTIC if. Guion anchoring the middle of this defense is absolutely terrifying to think about. He practiced twice and had one preseason game. His backups are Boyd and Pennel.

So which is it, one person in this thread is saying they have a weak middle offensive line and someone else is saying they are vulnerable at the the edges. Do they have an overall bad offensive line? I know Russell Wilson spent a lot of time escaping the pocket under pressure last year so I think it is a matter of keeping him contained and our DBs locking down on their weaker WR group.

I expect the offense to keep the Packers in this game. It will not be pretty though. Linsley had a solid camp but Thursday night is just going to be a million notches up from anything he saw in camp and in preseason. He will have to rely heavily at times on Sitton and Lang, which is okay but can really screw up the blocking scheme of the offensive line. If Linsley holds up, there really isn't much stopping this offense. I would love nothing more than to see this line shut up the big mouths of that defense. Bruce Irvin has been doing nothing but talk the past few days.

With all that negativity out of the way, I still think the Packers find a way to win. 21-17.

Sam Shields is screwed tonight. Dude gets more bogus DPI/holding calls than any player I've ever seen and our refs tonight called the most penalties of those than any other crew in preseason.
