That is outstanding. But is Seattle that good, or is Green Bay that bad.
Green Bay lost their nose tackle B.J. Raji in the preseason. Their lack of depth was exploited...

True, but that kind of dominance shouldn't happen because you lose one key player not named Aaron Rodgers.

I'm convinced of 2 things so far in this very early season...
1- Seattle is a badass f'ing football team
2- Green Bay is over-rated

Seattle are a very good team. Not champions yet, but a very good team.
Packers let themselves down. I believe by season end they will look back at the Seattle game and wonder why they tackled so poorly.

Re: At least there's no pressure to win now...

I hate the Seahacks.
The sports media machine keep asking if all the other teams are playing for second place because no one can beat Seattle.
It was the first game of the season. In Seattle. Where they unfurled their first championship banner.

They squeaked out wins on the road last year and turned it on in the playoffs. Everything went wrong for the Broncos in the Superbowl so Seattle looked awesome.

I'm not sold on them and I hope they fail miserably.

Doesn't matter, they are the defending champs, having watched their offense in the pre season and against green bay it does seem like they are more likely to play complementary football this year vs riding out purely on defense.Does seem like they have taken a step forward rather than bask in their glory, that being said we've had vast improvements on both sides of the ball too. It is going to come down to who plays better on the road and who does just enough to squeak out close wins. Had we squeaked past Carolina and New England in those close losses last year and somehow managed HFA I'm sure none of us would call our team lucky and not be sold on how good we actually could've been. I think both teams take care of their Home games let's just hope we win the close ones on the road.

The Cardinals won in Seattle last year; the Bucs shoukd have beaten them, although that may have been a home game for Tampa.

Moreover no pressure to win after blowing week 1.

Proof positive that being good on paper is less valuable than toilet paper...

Re: At least there's no pressure to win now...

There were several chances last year, in different games, where the Saints had the chance to take charge of their fate while on the road, and put it away, put everyone else in the rearview mirror behind them, and be on top of the division and conference, and they didn't do it. That trend continued today, leading into this year. Hope we all like a year of chasing behind the Falcons and the other teams ,trying to squeak in and get a wild card berth.
