Pete Carroll is Marshawn Lynch’s hype man
“He’s ready to go. We’re really excited about cutting him loose. … He hasn’t missed a snap or practice, hasn’t missed anything.”
Look how the Seattle Seahawks establish a ground game. Without Christine Michael tonight, Robert Turbin will be deployed. Notice the numbers on top of the sticks when Turbin hits the field.
Watch, tell time
Aaron Rodgers vs. Seahawks’ defensive line:
Left defensive end Michael Bennett, left defensive tackle Tony McDaniel, RDT Brendan Mebane, and RDE K.J. Wright.
No Jermichael Finley and no Randall Cobb could spell trouble (t-r-o-u-b-le) for the Packers offense. How will Rodgers share the ball now? Jarrett Boykin and Randall Cobb have some
explaining producing to do.
Russell Wilson vs. Himself
Hey Super Bowl Champion quarterback, how are your shoulders feeling? Are you off your high horse? Or did he mount one in the offseason? Pressure, a quarterback’s best friend.
Seahawks offense vs Packers secondary
Marshawn Lynch, Doug Baldwin (who says is confident against Green Bay’s secondary), Jermaine Kearse and Zach Miller will need to cover much ground against their visitors, who allowed 247 yards in the air in 2013.
The Seahawks allowed 273.6 TOTAL yards in 2013. … My my my.
Randall Cobb, via ESPN, said that he was relishing the underdog role. And no, he’s not pushing anybody on the swings.
Match ups continued:
Josh Sitton and TJ Lang vs. Tony McDaniel and Brandon Mebane.
Check frequently on Richard Rodgers, Green Bay’s new go-to tight end.
Clay Matthews? Check.
Julius Peppers? Check.
Morgan Bennett (strong safety)? Check!
Free safety Micah Hyde? Green Bay’s in for a long night.
Percy Harvin? Check.
Zach Miller? Check.
Russell Okung and Justin Britt? Let’s pray for Okung’s health.
REPLACEMENT REFS? NONE!
Percy Harvin vs. Sam Shields (or Tramon Williams) will be exciting to watch.
