I hope I see The Hurry Up Offense tomorrow just to change the pace a few times during the game, and put the Seattle D back on their heels. The Packers need to take the 12th man out of the game early. That will be huge too in Seattle.

I am a football fan, which means I love the hurry up offense. I would also like to see them use it tomorrow. But I doubt they will. I don't recall McCarthy ever doing that. I think he will try to run, run, run. Ryan Grant put over 200 on this Seattle defense last January.

Do you mean only against Seattle? I'm pretty sure there was a hurry up offense against the Cowboys a few weeks back.

Not necessarily Hurry up, but on the ball, quick to get set, out of the huddle.

Agreed. We have the people who can pull it off. Aaron obviously can. The Oline is the only thing that worries me cuz they're big and get tired(plus they suck).

The Pack has the Hurry Up "O". They practice it. They even went into it last week late when they were down if I am correct. I was a little juiced late in the game.

All I am typing is, I would love to see M.M. step into that mode... Even if it is on one series in one drive in the middle of the game. Kind of like a pitcher who throws heat needs a good change up.

I will refer to Greg on that. He is one of the most knowledgeable posters on any forum I have read.

Did they? I don't remember it. I'm not just thinking of at the end of a half or the end of a game, when every team uses the hurry-up out of necessity. I mean using it earlier in the game as a change-of-pace, like RP is suggesting. I don't recall McCarthy ever doing that, but maybe he has at some point.

I also like TengoJuego's idea of getting in and out of the huddle quickly and using quick sets, just to pick up the pace. The Falcons did that against the Packers early in last week's game.

I'm rusty on my Spanish, and when I first saw the name TengoJuego, I thought it meant, "I have juice." But then he explained that it means "I have game," or "I've got game." That's MUCH better than "I have juice."

I have Apple juice here. Tengo Juego!

Yes it will be interesting to see how much spice McCarthy can muster, but also if we're having enough problems with basics, we're going to get into more problems with exotic plans.

I just don't see Mike McCarthy doing this he didn't do it with a 16 year vet so i really can't see him doing it with a 1st year starter, Mike McCarthy in my opinion is a conservative play caller. Rodgers has to just do like the qb last year and do a quick audible and go.

uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
uffda udfa: I don't want to be difficult but you do for some reason. I know you've been dealing with a lot.
Zero2Cool: Precisely what I thought.
uffda udfa: Nah, that's okay. I already asked.
Zero2Cool: If you want your name changed, you need to send me a PM with the name change. Thank you.
