Score more points. That's not sarcasm. I think we're all expecting that to be another shootout, especially being indoors.
That he hasn't been an ideal return on the Packers' investment. They did not trade up in the second round for Jason Spriggs to not be the top backup at both tackle spots in his second season.
I did not, but I'm not a Packers fan.
That play was bang-bang, and the pass was tipped by Earl Thomas. Not saying it couldn't have been called, but it's very different.
Game situation, mostly. If Packers are in a good rhythm, they'll mostly go no-huddle.
For one, Mike McCarthy started using fullback Aaron Ripkowski a little more. I think that helped the Packers get their run game going, giving them more balance. Always easier on offense when you have balance. They also lost the field position battle in the first half, and they started finishing drives in the second.
No. The Seahawks secondary is one of the NFL's best. They aren't playing those DBs for 16 weeks.
Mike Daniels in a landslide.
I thought him and Nick Perry were both good. They played on the other side of the line of scrimmage.
One thing I found interesting is he rushes a lot from a three-point stance. Other than that, didn't really get to see him enough to make clear evaluations.
Look at what happened before that.
Ahmad Brooks' concussion seems to be the most significant at this moment.
Very, but that's not saying much.
Too many for one game, a game in which the Packers defense did not allow a single touchdown.
I thought Ty Montgomery was really good. Keep in mind, Pete Carroll said this Seahawks front could be he's had in Seattle. Montgomery was not going out there rushing for 100 yards. He almost hit the 100 mark in combined yardage. That's his game, a dual threat in the backfield, and it's effective.
I think it was fair to wonder if Cobb would be forgotten with all the weapons the Packers have in the middle of the field, and in a way he was. Only, instead of being forgotten by the Packers, he was forgotten by the Seahawks. On that 29-yard catch and run, he was left all alone. He consistently lined up against the Seahawks' third corner, who was really their fourth corner with Jeremy Lane's ejection. Instead of being pushed aside with the Packers' new weapons, it looked like Cobb could be even better, given favorable matchups.
Not that I'm aware of, but I don't dabble with tickets. Money does not see team colors.
The Packers were more than 80 percent nitro, and I think that's going to be the norm. Morgan Burnett is one of their most important players because of his versatility to drop inside the box. Entering camp, I did not see the Packers retaining Burnett past this season, the final year of his contract. Now, I think they'd be crazy not to re-sign him as an inside linebacker. He's clearly the best one on their roster.
Yeah, I can see how a Packers fan would find that hypocritical.
I don't hate the Packers either, if it makes you feel any better.
It's a three-safety personnel with Morgan Burnett as an inside linebacker in what looks like nickel, playing next to a traditional inside linebacker with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Kentrell Brice as the deep safeties.
Thought that was the best thing Packers did yesterday. Their defense looked very, very fast. The nitro package, which effectively gets six DBs on the field at all times, is a huge part of that.
