How About Packers vs. Seahawks As a Season Opener?

We’re still along ways away from another NFL season — too long, in fact — but there seems to be a good chance the 2014 season will open with the Green Bay Packers at the Seattle Seahawks.

Each NFL season opens with a marquee game on Thursday night. One of the team’s to play in that game is always the Super Bowl champion, so we know Seattle will be playing someone in their place.

One of the most intriguing teams that will be playing in Seattle is the Packers.

You know what happened the last time these two teams met. The greatest robbery in the history of football.

It looks like the Packers’ only realistic competition for that opening-night game will come from San Francisco and Denver.

The 49ers, however, are expected to open at home because they’re opening a new stadium. And the Broncos, well, who the hell wants to see a rematch of what was a totally one-sided Super Bowl?

No one that we know of.

    Phuck No damn it

    How come we always gotta open against a heavy weight??? San Fran the last 2 seasons. The Saints before that & Philly in 2010 on the road. It’s total bullshit

    Meanwhile…the ‘Queens open with the Browns in 2010 & the gay ass Bears open at home against a Colts team with a rookie QB at home 2 years ago…opened at home again this season…

    The NFL wants these “Big Market” teams like Chitcago getting off to a hot start & the Packers, with all their pretty-boy superstars, always gotta play a projected SB contender

    Would rather play them right away when the Packers have not lost a bunch of starters to injuries again. Surprised the Broncos didn’t run the ball quite a bit to start the game before they fell so far behind. The teams that gave Seattle the toughest time ran the ball on them a lot(Rams,49ers,Colts). With Lacy full speed and Rogers back along with all our other guys on DL feel the Pack has a good shot at beating the Seahawks earlier rather than later.

    I would say the 49ers at Seattle is the best bet for opening night, though the Packers would probably be the 2nd favorite.

    The 49ers can easily open their stadium in Week 2.

    I also agree that catching the Seahawks immediately rather than later might be the better option. Always good to test yourself against the best.

    Great. So, we’ll spend all day watching AJ Hawk watching waving as Marshawn Lynch runs by, only to pile-jump the big dummy 15- yards downfield? Or, Breno Giacomini beating the living crap out of CJ Wilson or Daytone Jones? No thanks.

      Ah yes, the official HQ of evil masterminds everywhere-fun fact, the schematics for the first ever atomic bomb were devised at a Chuck E Cheese in Albuquerque, NM.

    They might have a chance with a healthy pissed off O-Line and a fresh and ready to roll Lacy. It would be nice if they could also sign a big as fuck cheap shot artist fullback right from the prison yard. Win or lose at least deliver some pain to those mouthy assholes.

    As much as I hate those overly cocky bastards they are a damn good team. You saw how amp’d up they were the whole game. We cannot match that intensity. Packer guys are like Denver guys. Tacticians not steaming piles of rage. That’d be awesome if we found out 10 of them were totally juicing for that game and they were stripped of the win or a big asterisk was placed next to it.

    After a powder-puff, pillow-soft training camp…

    and after having played scrubs in the fourth pre-season game, so Ted and Mike can determine our very-own, no 53, “Mr. Irrelevant” …

    we’re going to play the Seahawks?

  8. No, no, and hell no, not opening night. Those teams are normally so jacked up, the fans crazier than normal. Let the Saints or 49ers start the season there.


    TEHEHEHE yeah you can play us week 1 when we are just on the start of our DYNASTY! SEAHAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Dynasty? The youngest team in the NFL is hardly a dynasty. Half of your current team will be gone in within two years. No team can afford to pay every superstar on their roster which is part of the reason why it’s so hard for the Superbowl champ to repeat the following year.
