Seattle Green Bay Preview

Seahawks-Packers-Most-Expensive-NFL-Tickets-2012-CNBC

Green Bay and Seattle. Seattle is the best team in the NFL according to the experts. I believe they have a good team but not a great team. They’re some question marks for one: Marshawn Lynch can he continue to take a pounding? Can Russell Wilson avoid the sophomore slump? Can Richard Sherman have the season he had last year?

This Seattle team reminds me of the Packers 15-1 season after we won the Super Bowl. All the experts thought the Packers would roll into the Super Bowl. One thing everyone missed was that our defense was horrible. I don’t believe Seattle’s defense is horrible. But with the rules changes and the fact every officiating crew is going to keep an eye the secondary and especially Richard Sherman. Speaking of officiating crew I hope this game doesn’t end on a fail mary pass, I mean hail mary.

Three things to watch.

1. The Running Game: Lynch versus Lacy that will define this game. If the Packers can run the ball with power. Rodgers can use the play action pass to keep Seattle’s defense on the field. That way keeping Seattle’s offense off the field forcing Wilson to beat us with his arm. This could even the odds, making the Packers defense two dimensional. That goes to my next point.

2. Defense: Julius Peppers time to earn your money. In regards to my point about the defense becoming two dimensional. If the threat of the run is gone. Dom Capers can finally unleash his defense to its full potential. Clay maker make sacks, the secondary can play zone, possibly baiting Wilson into some bad throws causing him to turn the ball over.

3. Turnovers: For the Packers to win this game they must not turn the ball over and must get turnovers. If the Packers force the Seattle to play from behind. The Packers will win this game. Wilson is not a come from behind quarterback. If Seattle gets down by a ten points early the Packers will win.

My final thoughts are that the Packers could win this game. I think it will be close early on, but then Seattle pulls away. Seattle 27-17 Green Bay

That being said, I believe this game will be exactly like the Atlanta game during our Super Bowl year. The Packers lost during the regular season at Atlanta. We all remember what happened in the playoffs. I’m going bold prediction that the same thing will happen this year. See you in the playoffs Seattle.
