  • Packers-Seahawks, Playoff Week 2

    Holmgren returns to Green Bay, Thompson faces the team he helped build, Koren Robinson against the team that drafted him, Matt Hasselbeck faces his mentor, We want the ball and we're going to score, etc.

    Get ready to hear a lot of that this week. There are many ties between these teams so it's always fun to play each other.

          for me, this game is all about the packer's offensive line. as ya saw in the wild card round, seattle gets some funny looking pass rushes. if the packers can establish a run and give favre time, the packers should win...but if the 'hawks are in the backfield all day, it's gonna be trouble.

            I expect Seattle to come out and try to spread the D with 3 and 4 receiver sets while running the ball. If we can blow that up, I think they'll fall back completely on the passing game and become one dimensional. The main issue there is hoping our reserve corners and our safeties can handle the extra receivers, Burleson and Engram, who are above average #3 and #4 targets.

            They shouldn't have a running game against us, even if we only utilize 6-7 man fronts a lot of the game.

            Defensively they've relied on the pass rush all year to succeed and Favre has always been incredible against the blitz, both in avoiding it and getting the ball out so quickly they never have a shot. The rest of their defense can be exploited and I believe we will hone in on that. I see Grant bashing them and Favre going over top a couple times. They like to go after the ball, though, so Favre needs to have a smart game and work into the deep routes instead of forcing them.

            Bottom line, I actually think we'll come out blasting in this one. I'm going with 38-13.

                That would be the best case scenario for me. Rouse and Collins were togheter for a few series against Detroit also but with Bigby winning D player of the month i dont see management sitting him even if i think the award doesnt tell the whole story.

                  Yeah, Shawn Alexander hasn't been himself this year, i think he was hurt for a bit and generally looks like he's aged alot since 2005 when he was the MVP. I also agree that if the packers get a lead, say by 10-14 points, game over, grant will pound it for the rest of the game and we move on to dallas.

                  the Packers need to do two main things to win this game. 1) pressure Hassellbeck, he looked shaky in their playoff game and without a run game he's gonna have to step up and make plays with a average WR corp. 2) establish the line on offense, that SEA pass rush is brutal, But Brett and the O have made a living on short/medium (Slants/bubble screens) passes all season. I believe that the seahawk pass rush plays to the strengh of what we can do.

                  I would have feared this team more if they were playing like they were in the middle part of the season, but losing to Carolina and Atlanta says to me that this team isn't very good away from Qwest field and is unable to take over the game with the running attack. I think pack win 27-17.

                        Not really new here... ive been reading these forums for almost 2 years i just dont post alot. Trying to start more now.


                        But to the game... I think we can win it but i think Favre cant throw INTs and Grants got to have a good game. On the Defensive side Bush has to play a good game and i want to see Kampman come out with 2 sacks. Im gonna say Pack by a touch down

                          Williams will be the nickelback. Bush has dropped down the depth chart. I'm not even sure where he stands at this point.

                            I think this game is going to come down to our interior line play. If they give Favre a pocket to step up in, forget about it. Tauscher/Clifton will be able to handle Tapp and Kerney, though Kerney may pose some problems, but nothing we can't handle.

                              The interior line has been fine all season when it comes to pass protectiong. It was the run game that they had trouble with. Favre's only been sacked 15 times during the whole regular season. Yes, the Seahawks have a very good pass rush and they'll get their hits on Favre, but I'm not too worried about it.
