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


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.

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.

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 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.

We can all witness how inconsistent they are in making these calls. I could imagine Richard Sherman gets away with a lot. I don't care what he says, he holds guys like crazy.

Man that pefectly time Dhold by Brad Jones cost us the ENTIRE rest of the 4th quarter.

How many times have we seen that type of shit? This whole game was a continuous downward spiral. Just when you don't think it could get any worse, Sherrod shits himself and the Hawks get a safety.

In other words, 4 quarters of nonstop patented Mike McCarthy lull.

Unfucking real.

Predicted this to be a loss. I wanted the Packers to not embarrass themselves and to keep it a close game and no injuries.

If we use this game as a bencharmk, this team has not improved over the off-season.

On the other hand, Mike's teams are never ready to play until at least week 5.

This is why I bitch when this team goes into lulls for a quarter or two, even tho we usually come back and win. Because once you have the attitude that lulls are "ok," this is what happens.

Your team ends up shitting itself on national television against a bunch of scumbags.

They stunk on every level. Even Aaron Rodgers looked like crap.
I never expected a complete horror show like that.
And another o-line injury.
I had such high hopes for this season. Now I don't know how we can have much hope.
Yes, it's only one game, but this was supposed to show the world that the packers were one of the elite teams. It showed the opposite.
