Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks: Brutally Honest Preview

For the 20th straight season, the Green Bay Packers will make an appearance on Monday Night Football, making the trip to CenturyLink Field to face off with the Seattle Seahawks.

Seattle is a city currently crazed by rookie sensation Russell Wilson, a guy Packers nation should know very well from his time with the state’s second most important football team, the Wisconsin Badgers.

This game won’t be about quarterbacks though, it’s about a couple of defenses coming off top notch performances in week two wins.

Packers Defense is the Surprise in a 45-7 Win Over the Vikings

 

 

 

 

 

 

Everyone knew Aaron Rodgers and the offense would have a big game, but it was the Green Bay Packers’ defense and special teams who stole the show this Monday Night.

Coming into the game, the undefeated Packers (9-0) were allowing 22.4 points per game, but Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings (2-7) came nowhere close to that in a 45-7 loss at Lambeau Field.

Rookie wideout Randall Cobb jump-started the Packers big win with a 80 yard punt return for a touchdown on Green Bay’s first possession. With the score, Cobb became the only rookie in Packers history to return a kick-off and punt for a touchdown in the same season.

Aaron Rodgers’ Brother Jordan: Starting QB at Vanderbilt

Aaron Rodgers is on his way to having a NFL MVP type season. He’s put up incredible, video game like numbers as his Green Bay Packers are undefeated; and playing with an abandon that makes us believe the Pack could go 16-0. As long as the offense carries the load for the defense, like earlier today in the win over the San Diego Chargers.

His little brother Jordan Rodgers? His season isn’t going quite as well. However, he is a SEC starting signal caller, as he leads the Vanderbilt Commodores.

Packers Defense is Terrible, But Aaron Rodgers is Not

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s no secret, the Green Bay Packers defense gives up a lot of points. Their horrendous play was on full display this Sunday, but it didn’t matter because their QB Aaron Rodgers is almost too good to be true.

Rodgers threw for another four touchdowns (24 on the season) to will the Packers to a 45-38 win over the San Diego Chargers. Green Bay remains as the NFL’s lone undefeated team at 8-0 and have scored over 24 points in every single game this season.

Aaron Rodgers Gives His Opinion on Dez Bryant

aaron-rodgers

During Cowboys camp Sunday, rookie wide receiver Dez Bryant broke a rookie tradition by refusing to carry the shoulder pads of veteran wide receiver Roy Williams, who is  in a competition for playing time with Bryant, ironically enough. “I’m not doing it,” Bryant said. “I feel like I was drafted to play football, not carry another player’s pads. … I’m saying that out of no disrespect to (anyone).”

Monday afternoon, Green Bay Packer quarterback Aaron Rodgers continued his summer-long journey of exercising his first amendment rights (i.e. his interview with Homer). When asked by one of his followers via Twitter, “Dez Bryant won’t carry teammates pads when told too. What would you say to a rookie who won’t do what a vet tells him to do?” Rodgers responded, “I’d tell him he needs to pay his dues n fall in line.”

Aaron Rodgers’ Fun-Filled Media Conference Call

Aaron Rodgers' Exit

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers had an extremely productive 2008, throwing for over 4,000 yards and 29 TDs against just 13 INTs, for a passer rating of 93.8. It was a stellar season, and with a full year of starting under his belt, not to mention the fact he no longer has to deal with the distraction of any Diva ex-Packer QBs, and the media circus following the situation- logic dictates that he should settle even more into his starting role, and put up even bigger numbers in 2009. On Wednesday, he was on conference call with the Chicago media in preparation for the Bears-Packers game Sunday night.

We all know that athletes are well-coached by their respective PR departments in what to say (by that I mean don’t say anything substantive or remotely negative), but it was still very entertaining to hear the Chi sports media try and get Rodgers to utter something provocative  about the game. And equally funny to hear Rodgers shoot them down every single time.

Perhaps the best was when a reporter told Rodgers about how there’s been negative press about the NFC North in recent years: “There has?” Rodgers responded, and then asked what Rodgers thought about the NFC North more recent and better publicity.

“Yeah, I could care less what the media thinks about the NFC North.”

There were also questions about comparing him to other NFC North quarterbacks, his team to other division teams, comparing team rivalries as well as player rivalries and they all yielded gems such as these:

“I’m not going to get into the game-plan much.”

“I don’t know. Or have an answer for you.”

“I don’t really get into that either, I don’t deal with that kind of pressure- that media stuff that sells papers and people blog about”

“I’m not even going to touch that.”aaron_rodgers

“That’s not a fun question, I’m not even going to touch that one.”

“I don’t really get into the whole comparison stuff.”

But it wasn’t all extended versions of “no comment.” Rodgers did give his opinion on the Bears defense:

“They’re a veteran defense…Brian {Urlacher} is the general out there, he’s checking blitzes and checking things at the line of scrimmage and checking out of blitzes and being the coach he is. And that allows their defense to get themselves in good situations and fly to the ball and make plays.”

And on what we should think about the Pack’s impressive showing on offense this preseason:

“We take it pretty seriously here, and we’re excited about the things we’ve done, we realize none of those stats carry over, but the momentum and the good feelings we have and we’ll take that with us. Along with the confidence we’ve built from it.”
