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

Recommended Posts

Honestly. I would rather Seattle. NE D can stop their O. Not sure about Rodgers and the GB D was playing lights out for 56 minutes. I still don't know how they lost. How? How?

Cant answer....

I agree that NE can beat Seattle no matter what the oddsmakers say.

In perfect weather it would have been tough to outscore GB..plus Sherman may be hurt

If I didn't think that Seattles on-field behavior is a disgrace to athletics at any level..

..I could see that this was a great game to watch...

.and if you have the Pack and 8 points, you won!

Sometimes you are out of chances when you have a QB rating of about 6 with 7-8 minutes left in the game. 

Yeah, but what did he do the last few minutes of the game? We aren't talking hypotheticals, we're talking about what actually happened. Give credit where credit is due.

That Wilson had a terrible game....4 interceptions and 4 sacks....worst I've seen in a playoff..

But if you want to cheap shot Peyton ..again I totally understand it,...he lost

the next 9 months..no matter what the subject...cheap shot Peyton....it is what it is..

talking stats, show me stats for your support.

Russell had a game winning drive in an NFCCG. No one will remember this game as a 4 INT game but the game winning drive.

Your lack of appreciation for what Russell did today is a joke.

Russell had a horrible game but his team put him in position to have a shot at winning it and he came through. All said this is not a game to raise his legacy but I agree no one will remember the bad plays. We don't remember Peyton's during his SB run nor any of Brady's during his early SB runs. I was disappointed in how this game turned out... Not because I was rooting for GB or anything but just because of how well GB played for 95% of the game only to lose on an onside kick. Like when we were winning in our SB amd the momentum totally shifted on the onside. TD on fake fg and after onside kick just a tough way to lose. GB had its shot but that will haunt them forever.

Seattle's offense begins and ends with Lynch. He is the reason they won. To imply otherwise proves you're bias in favor of Wilson.

Be careful what you wish for.

 

Odds of Russell having a back to back 4 INTs game is not good. Seattle defense is definitely better than of Packers.

 

It will be very hard for NE to beat Seattle, if they make it to the SB.

So Russell didnt do anything today?

Other than throwing a game winner AND 4 ints with a top 5 defense to cover for you.

I like that game winner part. Thank you. I think this game is played to win?.

I swear I could puke at these silly "don't beat women" commercials. Do they really think crying actors pretending to be upset will sway a redneck on his 13th Pabst Blue Ribbon from hitting his wife?

How about actually punishing men for doing this with......laws and justice?

And that predictable American Sniper movie.

The 2 point conversion was clutch

That was about as "clutch" as Eli lobbing the football in a heave of desperation against the Pats. The ball hung in the air forever and the defender just basically stopped and watched it.

 

GB played conservative all game and, combined with several complete blunders in the end, lost it. They settled for a field goal 3 inches from the end zone and came up with like 9 points from 4 turnovers in great field position.

 

Beast mode pretty much single handedly carried Seattle's offense (along with GB defenders). If SEA handed off to the guy 80% of the time this would not have even been a game. Although two picks weren't Wilson's fault (tipped and should have been caught) he still played poorly for 50 minutes outside those picks.

Assuming NE wins tonight, here's hoping SEA is smart enough to just run it down their throats.

 

If we somehow pull this game out of our rear, I do not look forward to bouncing off Lynch all night.

My apologies. The sarcasm was lost on me.

 

 

No problem.  I was just amusing myself with how that was called a great performance by the 2 posters that always RG3>A Luck and now it's RW. If Luck had thrown 0 TD's and 4 Ints vs GB , we would have been down by at least 30.

This game mad me so angry. I hate Seattle by the way. Am I the only one who notices how lucky Seattle and Wilson are. I mean that 2 point conversion??? Come on. No way that would have worked if it were us. Something always goes their way and they did NOT deserve to win this game. Horrible!!! LOL at Jermaine Kearse in that interview. LOL. He would be a number 4 receiver on any other team.

Hey....I can't stand them either, especially Pete Carroll.

 

But the Packers needed to play 60 minutes...and they played 55 minutes.

I still can't believe this game. I knew the Colts were done after halftime today when the Pats scored so fast a few times. Hell I would take a blowout loss anyday over what happened with Green Bay. I was in shock.

 

I really can't believe this Packers meltdown. Holy moly. I thought it was over, I really did.

 

Rodgers IMO was fun to watch too in this warrior banged up mode.

 

 

Just ugh. And we all know how it feels to lose an onside kick too in a key game.  :facepalm:

The Packers gave Seattle a belated Christmas present this year...

They should have been up by 4 scores...but they blew it, Rodgers throwing that interception really killed that drive, that would have been the final nail in the coffin, but he didn't take advantage of it, he tried to do too much today...he needed everyone to step up, but they didn't. That two point conversion...I thought Tim Tebow was playing for the Hawks for a second...god was on their side.

Truthfully, I felt worse when Green Bay lost than I did with the Colts. I so wanted the Packers to be in the Super bowl, since they're my second favorite team.

Green Bay had a chance and blew it. Something in the universe isn't right when a team can play so badly like Seattle did at first, and still win.  In the Colts game it was like "here we go again" with a kind of resignation. The Packers, however, had that game within reach so it was a more of a heartbreaking loss. IMO.

atleast it's the plays which were the factor of the outcome not bad calls by referees.

Hats off  :hat:  to Russell Wilson and the Seahawks.   The first 3 quarters were certainly no their finest hour, but #3 sure played with heart and determination in the final minutes when it really mattered.

 

They proved why they are the reigning champs.

    • Nah, the medical evaluations at the combine are very comprehensive and shared to/by all 32 teams.  No 'leaking' necessary. All teams will know everything. Every single player, all of them, are evaluated.   Here's relative snippets about medicals at the combine from an article about 6 years ago. Warning: even snipped, this is lengthy.   ****************************************************************   "We break down the medical evaluation into two distinct segments: internal medical examinations and orthopedic examinations," Dr. Matava explained.   "During the internal medical exam, players are evaluated by team internists for cardiovascular, kidney, liver and pulmonary health. Part of this examination includes a battery of tests—such as blood work, EKGs and, for certain players, stress tests for their heart—in order to determine if there are any internal issues that might affect the player's ability to participate in the NFL."   "If a player has a history of problems, such as (high blood pressure), sickle cell anemia, diabetes or asthma, those conditions will be noted," Matava continued. "We also make note of their current condition and any treatments they are receiving. Then, we make recommendations to the team regarding that player's ability to play at the NFL level with these medical issues." Every internist receives the opportunity to see every player, but at least one internist evaluates every prospect.   "If a player is healthy, the evaluating internist will compile a general health report which is shared with the other teams. Once the medical evaluations are complete, each player is given an internal medicine grade that can be somewhat unique for each team. This grade then gets factored into their overall medical grade. This is given to the team's general manager and head coach to be used when they make draft decisions."   "The orthopedic evaluations are performed in a similar fashion (as the internal medicine exams)," Matava noted. "There are six exam rooms, and each exam room has six teams represented within it. Players will go to each room and will undergo an orthopedic history and exam, have his X-rays and other imaging studies reviewed and have their information presented to the other doctors in the room."   Additionally, linemen receive an X-ray of their lumbar spine—the only mandatory X-ray—to make sure they do not have a vertebral stress fracture.   "Each team compiles an orthopedist grade based on the players' history of injuries, previous surgeries, current physical examination and current X-ray(s) and MRI(s)," Matava clarified. "Some players will have a very healthy orthopedic grade, but their internal medicine grade might be low because of a medical condition. However, it is more common that a player's internal medicine grade is very high, but they've had significant orthopedic problems that affect their overall medical grade."   "All the X-rays and test results are shared with all of the medical teams, and NFLPS members will occasionally communicate other findings," Matava explained. "However, each team has their own grading scale for players, and each medical team shares their grades with their general managers and coaches."   "I'm biased, but I think the medical side is the most important aspect of the combine because teams can't get this kind of information about a player at any other time in the pre-draft process," Matava offered.   "A team can always ask a guy to do extra bench presses, run the 40-yard dash or have more interviews with coaches, but you are never going to get all of these medical specialists in one room together with this type of comprehensive medical assessment again."
    • Yeah, I’m buying into the Clowney and Harris signings too.  They make a lot of sense to me.  And while I’m warming to Love, I just can’t get to him being worth that #13 pick.  We’d be passing on a huge star to draft Love IMO - Kinlaw, Ruggs, Wirfs, Lamb, Becton.  That’s really good talent we’d have to pass on....
    • A pity for Watson; for the Colts sake, BOB in HOU forever....!
    • Quite interesting. Also of note:   Zac Taylor has small hands himself, and has even coached other small handed QBs including Jared Goff.    Very few QBs with hands at 9 have apparently been super successful, but the NFL is about breaking the norm.
