Green Bay (+ 7 1/2) @ Seattle (1-18-15)

Recommended Posts

FOX.... 3:05 EST.....50 degrees with a chance of (big surprise in Seattle) rain..over-under 47

Seattle QB Russell Wilson (257 of 407, 3,357 yards) has rushed 96 times for 539 yards..

Seattle allows 4.4 yards per play..No. 1 in the NFL

Richard Sherman has 8 interceptions (not counting one more last week)

Marshawyn Lynch (301 carries), 1,257 yards) gained 110 yards vs. Green Bay in September..

GB QB Aaron Rodgers (341 of 520, 4,381 yards, 38 TDs, 5 INTs) is the 2015 NFL MVP and the Packers average

31 points a game..No.1 in the NFL..Rodgers threw for 316 last week..

RB Eddie Lacy (246 rushesm 1,139 yards) caught 42 passes for 427 yards during the regular season.

WR Jordy Nelson caught 98 for 1,519 yards..WR Randalll Cobb caught 91 for 1,287..

Seattle is 8-1 at home..GB is 5-3 on the road....No NFC team has repeated as conference champ in 17 years.

The last team was the Packers (1996-97_

Seattle has not allowed more than 30 points in a game all year. GB has scored 30 or more 8 times..

The injury to Aaron Rodgers decides this game. His inability to move as normal limits what GB can do.

Unless the Packers are lying about his injury ( a possibility), he's no better than last week. The Packers defenders are not quick enough to stay with Wilson.

Seattle usually covers at home..(every game except Dallas and Oakland) and they win and cover here.

Rain would also favor Seattle....the spread will probably grow to 8 or 9..

I'd take Seattle and the over

That is a huge spread for a title game but I would still bet Seattle. I think they win by 14 or more. With Rodgers unable to create with his feet, I just don't see how they keep that defense off-balance. I think both Wilson and Lynch have big games as well. Hawks roll 35-21. I would take the over.

Tight game in the first half then the Hawks pull away. Could be ugly for Rodgers like the last time as he has already said he is going to challenge Sherman ...

I wish there was more drama here..

We've just seen this before, I think. Its very hard to play there. Your linemen cant get a quick start.

You cant run wide....

MJC is right...you eventually have to challenge Sherman.

I'd love to see a closer game..but GB isn't a really good defensive team and they cant make Wilson turn it over.

If Lynch fumbles a couple of times or there's some special team blunders..its close for a while....but, unless they're lying,

Rodgers cant run away from the rush...He may not finish the game

From a points standpoint,,a GB win seems likely to be a FG or 6 points

...a Seattle win could be broken open by a fumble of interception ate and could be that 14point spread

would love to see the packers win this one, really disliking the seahawks more and more with all the stuff they spout. Would love them to get serious yards on Sherman

 

Think logically though the seahawks riding Lynch will get the win in a close game as Lacy will get shutdown and GB wont establish the run

@zachkruse2: Wow, per @JayGlazer: Randall Cobb was in the hospital for three hours last night. Thought he had appendicitis. Playing today.

    • Just avoid this website for about 30 seconds leading up to the pick. Not that hard to avoid this type of spoiler.
    • Fact - Dorsey put KC in a hole from a cap perspective Fact - Dorsey told Maclin via email that he was being released.  Fact - Dorsey was fired from KC Fact - KC went from ranked in the 20s offensively to the top 5 immediately after Dorsey was fired   Simply put, Dorsey didn't work out in KC. And firing someone via email is just *ic and cowardly. That is black and white.
    • You have a singularly unique viewpoint.   If only the real world was as black and white as you seem to think it is....   If only....  
    • If all are there, I take Wilkins 99% of the time and Simmons 1%. Like you've stated its unlikely though, so I'll go with Simmons (provided Dr's reports are good).  
    • I already pointed to 2 teams who got far more hosed this year than the Colts.  The Buccaneers and the Raiders.  Even the NFL came out and ADMITTED it was not a fair schedule.  So tell me, did they really care? Nope.  They had plenty of opportunity to pour over the schedules before they became public and make some adjustments.  They did not.  They have proven my point.  They do not care if schedules are unfair.   When I say to whine, just play your schedule, that refers to the difficulty this year of the teams we play and the locations of the games which are hard wired in and known to everyone the second the schedule comes out.  I am also not whining when I pointed to the schedule's order being particularly difficult with those three divisional games coming down the road.   Those are simply the teams hard wired in and the order, though not preferential, is not worth whining about.   It's a known reality you have to play all those teams in all those locations.     BUT.. and here is the massive distinction: The late night games and the nationally featured games are entirely and intentionally created all season.  Nobody denies this.   So for 10 of 13 seasons, they have INTENTIONALLY given us a horrendously unbalanced disadvantages, and they do not care.  The idea that they DO care at all about things like CTE is only because they don't want the lawsuits and they don't want the gravy train to be legislated by government to stop.  They don't want the PEOPLE to demand it.  Or for Moms to stop letting their hyper athletic kids to play football and instead guide them into other sports.  Of course soccer leads to more overall concussions per player worldwide at all levels, but the media simply doesn't care because the "world" game is off limits and the NFL is a big fat target to be taken down by a line of special interests in the USA.  It is a game that important to men and boys and often teaches them to work together for something bigger than themselves, to have discipline and focus, to stay out of trouble and put some effort into grades and it often gives kids without fathers in the home exposure to many father figures in the game, not just a head coach, but assistant positional coaches and coordinators, weight lifting/fitness coaches and team captains/leaders as well as peers who are more often doing the right things instead of the wrong things.  For whatever reason some would prefer to theorize, there are major forces out to destroy that lifeline for boys, young men and even full grown men.  But the NFL doesn't care about the health or those issues.  They only care that the supply of super freak athletes continues unabated and they don't care about fairness, equality or safety, they care about TV ratings (#1 show on every involved network) so those nearly insane rates keep growing and to keep butts in seats, gambling growing and thriving (wait til you see what is coming in that arena) and merchandise sales humming along.  If they have to screw the Colts and other teams along the way, it's no big deal to them.  If the refs just happen to screw the smaller markets at key moments of specific games to change who advances, well, that's just a happy coincidence that rings up a higher ticket on the cash machine.   And based on attitudes like "small markets like Indianapolis should be happy to just have a team" they have those people just where they want them.  Docile and willing to take any scraps they care to toss out.  That's how they con cities into terrible stadium deals (thank God Indianapolis representative are brilliant and have connected our convention business to the stadium literally to the stadium making us one of the top convention destinations in the world, but I digress).     Pointing out TRUTHS is not whining.  Pointing out and listing undeniable facts is not whining.  Whining about me doing that is whining.  Whining about me pointing out when your faux facts and belief in them as being naive is whining.   Not being able to tell the difference is also naive.  But alas.
