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.

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

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

    • Ballard didn't say it was definite.   He didn't rule it out.   He just said as of this minute.    I think he's hoping to find out in April and May.      He still might end up deciding Eason is OK as the back-up.   I was only trying to impress upon those in the "Throw Jacob Eason in and see what we have" crowd that Ballard has crushed that dream for 2021.    But I wouldn't rule out 2022....  at least not yet.  
    • TY - 2Y/22M - he can still play but he’s not Tyreek Hill taking the top of defenses anymore, and with his disappearing act at the beginning of the year I’m afraid to sign him any longer or with too much guaranteed. Partly for sentimental reasons I want him to stay, but I do think he’s still got some juice.    Mack - 1Y/1M - Likable player but due to his position and injury, no way can I justify giving him much more than vet minimum.    Houston - 1Y/8M - Fell off a lot this year compared to his first year. Still our best edge player, basically by default and I’d be hoping we can get a more 2019 performance out of him at arguably our weakest position on the team.    Autry - Walk. He will price himself out with an inflated sense of value because he’s gotten decent sack numbers, but he is the definition of JAG and I’d only keep him if he agreed to a minimum contract.    Rhodes - 1Y/6M - He was a stud this year. If we could guarantee that he won’t revert back to his last two years in Minnesota I would be willing to go longer and higher. With how much he fell off after getting paid the first time, I’m not giving him a long term deal.    Walker - 1Y/2M - He was playing a very small percentage of downs at the end of the year so I’m keeping him less based on ability and more based on leadership and football savvy.    Hooker - Walk. Both sides need to just move on. I’d keep him at minimum too but I think both sides want a fresh start. Also a little miscast in the current defense so no reason to force a square peg into a round hole.    Brissett - 1Y/5M - Too big of a fan of Brissett as a man to want to see him leave. I don’t want him starting but he’s a very solid backup and compared to the 20M we gave him last year, I can live with his salary being at 1/4 of that this year.    Pascal and MAC both tendered at 2.24M. I want to bring in Kenny Golladay or Allen Robinson and Pascal is JAG so he’s not falling into my future plans much. I’m a big fan of MAC and I wouldn’t mind seeing him play the Jack Doyle role. He’s a better blocker, has better hands, and is more explosive.    I may be lowballing some guys but I’d hate to fall into the trap of overvaluing our guys and keeping them just because you want to keep your own. Unfortunately, I think the five most important positions on the team also coincide with our five weakest positions on the team; QB, WR, CB, DE, and LT. Fortunately we’ve got a good cap situation and this is the perfect year to be needing a QB. 
    • If we let Walker Walk, (and I think it’s likely) it’s not because we want an upgrade.   It’s because we simply don’t play him enough.   I think East Street has the numbers in snaps, but I think Walker is roughly playing 25-30 percent of the snaps.   That’s it.    We can't pay him enough for that.   Some other team will PLAY him more so they will PAY him more.    When Walker is off the field, we are either playing a 4-2-5 or a 4-1-6.   Leonard plays basically 100 percent of the snaps and I think Oke is about 55-60 percent.     There is a method to our madness.  
    • I'm surprised some folks want to resign Walker. Imo we definitely need an upgrade.... I'd let him walk.
    • Colts have won one playoff game in 6 seasons. Some more losing seasons and this team is no longer even in the top half of NFL franchises. They would be mostly irrelevant. I can’t imagine Irsay going for that.   Ballard is definitely safe...but this is year 5 and I am assuming there is a bit more urgency than just waiting for the perfect opportunity to come along.
