Except we played the Lions at Lambeau.
Watching the team interviews all week it’s becoming apparent that our guys are suffering from some sleep deprivation. This is likely due to the pressure mounting, watching Seahawks game tape and seeing how a real defensive unit built for multiple championships performs. I don’t think the score will be close in this one. I see the Seahawks repeating as Conference and Super Bowl champs. Our players can talk all they want about the need to gang tackle but I have not seen the consistency to do that all season or at least all game long. We are who we are, bend don’t break. Problem is that this Seahawks team will break you once you bend to their will.
If the final score has us 7 pts behind, I would be shocked and amazed by that accomplishment.
Ugh…sometimes I wish I was that perputal optimist instead of a negative realist…
You forgot to point out all the school shootings over the past year, global turmoil and the rising rate of cancer.
The odds are not good. I said before in another post that I see the Seahawks as the only NFL team without a weakness. Plus they are playing at home. Plus we’ve got a gimpy QB.
Vijay, why don’t you get that curry-scented, double-ended, 9″ flopper out of your ass and quit crying. You must be a real drag to hang out with.
Vijay do you even know what football is?
Their weakness is their passing offense. If the packers can get a lead and force Wilson to chase points by throwing they have a shot. If we fall behind a couple scores and they get into the offensive scheme they prefer, it will almost certainly be curtains on this packers season.
Hey guess what? Packers have a defense. Yes we all know the Seahawks have a Great defense. But here is the facts. Packer O vs Hawks D pretty even. depends on who just has the better day. Packers D vs Hawks O. Really? do the Hawks have an offense. I mean Lynch is good, and Russell can run, but he isn’t a passer at heart.
This isn’t the same Seattle team that won the Super Bowl.
Last season they lead the league in interceptions and were near the top in sacks. This season they are below average in both interceptions and sacks. Now folks will say that the Seahawks defense came around a lot the last 6 games or so, but that’s pretty easy to do when you have face back up quarterbacks for 4 of those games.
Buffalo has a much, much better defense.
Seahawks can’t pass it. Russell isn’t a passer. he will most likely have more running yards than passing. Packers D is better than it was in week 1. No doubt Packers will win. Rodgers is the MVP!
If the Packers win this, it will be right up there with any win in the history of the franchise. I guess im just not getting the same confidence like I did in 2010. But shit going to Chicago for the NFC title game, I knew it was in the bag. This will be be one hell of a lot bigger challenge then that game was for the Packers.
Actually, I may be overrating the Seahawks defense. I did a little research and found Seattle’s defense not quite as good as Green Bay. The Pack allowed 315 ypg, which ranked fifth in the NFL, the Seahawks 362. Their passing defense was well behind ours and their rushing defense only a little better–Seattle tied for fourth and the Packers at 6th.
Don’t forget that is largely against garbage opponents. They have not faced a top tier quarterback since Romo.
James: I believe you are just looking at playoff stats not the regular season. The stats you are seeing is just for the one playoff game. That is good in that Carolina produced 362 yards against Seattle, however it does not indicate the true Seattle D over a course of a season. Maybe they are wearing down? I did not think they gave up that many yards to Carolina last week. Some of those yards had to be in garbage time.
Who cares about yards given up in the SEA v CAR playoff game? Did you check that final score?
I hope I’m wrong…but I seriously doubt I will be. The only way SEA loses is if they beat themselves (i.e turnovers and penalties).
Dude, Vijay… Whut the fuck? You’re killin’ us with that pessimistic shit mannnnnnnnnn.
Hey vaj, did you happen to notice that before the vaunted d “got right” against mark sanchez, rysn lindley shawn hill and kapernik, that amazing d gave up 61 points over 3 games to the “juggernaut” offenses led by eli manning derek carr
Hey vaj, while you troll the website hoping somehow russell wilson will see it and let you suck his cock, take notice that their vaunted defense only “got right” in the second half against drew stanton, ryan lindley, shawn hill, mark sanchez and kapernick(twice)
Hell the one good showing their defense had in the first eleven weeks was when the gave up 9 to carolina in carolina, and now their “fixed” defense gave up 17 in seattle to carolina, And im pretty sure newton is not rodgers, and carolinas offense is not green bays
