I just can't see the Seahawk defense containing a healthy Lacy in his 2nd year and the best player in football. Throw in the receiver weapons, well balanced TEs, and an underrated offensive line and you have a potential juggernaut offense. The defense will be put to the test but that Peppers/Clay pass rush should improve the defensive line and secondary.
Based on what I've heard from Seattle fans, the expectation is for them to crush us. I know players aren't as delusional as the fans can be... but I think the Pack will be much tougher to handle than most give them credit for. And if the Seahawk players come into this game expecting a win, they could be in for quite the rude awakening.
Yep. And next year teams will be playing for the Carroll Trophy. Forget everything you thought you knew about football, none of the histories matter anymore. Embrace the revolution or be crushed under the heel of the 12!!
I actually like how we match up with them style wise. Passers like Rodgers who are able to extend plays and that throw open receivers are the kryptonite of defenses like Seattle who thrive on disruption of timing. I generally bet against the Pack when I'm on the fence because, that way, either my team wins or I win. I bet against us versus San Fran in last year's opener.
But I honestly feel good about the match up. So I'm taking Green Bay.
