Most teams these days are built similarly, if not the same way. Defenses are playing mostly subpackage. Offenses run through the quarterback. I don't think it would move the needle much.
Not to mention, a team that plays in Foxborough just had a historic comeback against a team that plays in a dome while playing a Super Bowl indoors.
I'm here for two reasons: inform and entertain. Sports should be fun at all times. My professional duties means I need to see the game, the team clear of any biases that come with fan allegiance. Once you've done this job long enough, it becomes easier than it sounds.
He served his one-game suspension last week, will return this week. Packers will need to make a roster move to activate him.
My guess is special teams probably was the deciding factor.
I get what you're saying, but it's not a bad thing to strengthen a strength. That trade doesn't impact the fact the Seahawks offensive line is a mess, one way or another. If you've got a great defense and have a chance to acquire Sheldon Richardson for your No. 2 receiver, I make that move.
I thought he spread it around pretty well. Can think of several quick hitters to middle of the field. The touchdown pass over the top to Jordy Nelson came in the middle of the field.
I think in about 10 weeks, when the Seahawks are something like 7-3, you'll feel better about what you saw yesterday.
Good question, and it's something I've wondered. Josh Jones is only 7 pounds lighter than Joe Thomas, who plays a lot of ILB in the nitro. Dom Capers generally brings his rookies along slowly, and if the Packers defense continues to do what it did yesterday, he'll have that luxury. By season's end, I think you need to get Josh Jones on the field, and that could be a very explosive pair of linebackers with Jones and Morgan Burnett. Would not surprise me if we see it later in the season.
His issue was not that K.J. Wright dove at Aaron Rodgers, but that in his mind Wright dove in late. That's why he gave the shove.
I think I'll better be able to answer that after seeing what they do Sunday in Atlanta. That, to me, will be a big indicator of where they are, and their potential going forward.
This is a good place to finish today. I was a little surprised at how little two-TE sets we saw. It's clear the Packers are going to be predominantly three-WR personnel, which is what they've been in the past. I was also a little surprised they played so much more nitro, and almost zero base, against a running team like Seattle. That's an indication the nitro will be their staple. I was surprised Bryan Bulaga didn't play, but it worked out for them. And I was stunned how good the Packers defense played. If they continue that, they'll be a very hard team to beat this season.
