Packers vs. Seahawks on Monday Night Football
We’re going to delve into the not-so-obvious aspects of the Packers – Seahawks matchup and give you some very specific things to look for.
Here are three not-so-obvious things to watch in this game:
Breno Giacomini vs. ?
The Packers are quite familiar with Breno Giacomini and his positives and negatives. While his size is a big help in the running game, moving that big body quickly enough is a real problem for Giacomini against speed rushers. I expect Erik Walden to get a lot of snaps over Nick Perry, taking advantage of his speed rushing capabilities. I also wouldn’t be surprised to see the Packers give Clay Matthews a decent number of snaps on Giacomini’s side. Nick perry will probably get teh snaps in obvious running situations.
Conversely, the Seahawks will certainly be ready for this possibility and have some pass/run options put in for Russel Wilson to call. Given Walden’s issues against the run last year (although he has improv...

Green Bay Packers cornerback Sam Shields looked very good during last week’s win over the Chicago Bears. But he still needs to show that he can be consistent enough to be a full-time starter.
“Despite Sam Shields’ strong performance as the Packers’ starting RCB in the Week Two victory over the Bears, we hear the situation on the right corner remains relatively fluid, with...
The Green Bay Packers ended their Monday night game verses the Seattle Seahawks wondering why this defeat happened. In a game that ended on a questionable call by the replacement officials that gave the Seattle Seahawks the game winning touchdown the Packers fell to 1 and 2 on the season.
The first why for the Green Bay Packers is: Why to Aaron Rodgers get sacked eight, yes...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The final play of the Packers-Seahawks game is what will most be remembered by anyone who watched the game. However, with 59-plus other minutes to evaluate, Green Bay (now with a 1-2 record this season) has a lot of work to do.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings, who is questionable for Monday night's game at the Seattle Seahawks, told ESPN that he will play. Jennings said his injured groin is still sore but feels good enough to play. Coach Mike McCarthy said Saturday that he thought Jennings had at least a 50 percent chance of playing after practicing two consecutive days. Jennings...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is expected to play in tonight’s game against the Seattle Seahawks even though he’s been dealing with a groin injury.
Even though the Packers have a lot of depth at the receiver position, the impact of a player like Jennings can’t be underestimated.
There are a few key fantasy contributors that have had a number of injury question marks surrounding their playing status leading up to Week 3 of...
Andrew Quarless thought he would have been ready for the regular-season opener, so it should come as no surprise that the Packers tight end thinks he will hit the ground running when hes eligible to come off the physically unable to perform (PUP) list after Week 6.
Quarless, who tore the ACL and MCL and sustained other damage in his right knee last Dec. 4 against the New York...
The "Monday Night Mugging." Like all notoriously controversial plays, this play needs a nickname. So it won't be forgotten. So it goes down as a black mark, as an asterisk, in the annals of NFL history.
In fact, if the NFL has any integrity, they should retroactively change the result of the Packers-Seahawks game tonight. The job of the NFL is to ensure the...
I want to try and come up with a way to type up a story after what just happened but all I can come up with is this. That was the most pathetic display of football that anybody has had to witness.
I’m not just talking about that last play, that last drive was filled with terrible calls. From the roughing the passer call, to the pass interference call, to the couple...
Game calls by replacement officials are so bad that it is moving the betting line on NFL games, and on the odds teams will make the post season.
Kevin Bradley, Sportsbook Manager for bovada.lv, released this statememt on last night’s refereeing debacle in the Seattle Seahawks - Green Bay Packers game:
"Never have I seen such an egregious call that represented such...
Having calmed down enough to post this, I think this could be very well the game and play that vaults the Packers into “BEAST MODE” (please don’t sue me Marshawn). To me the Packers were a team living on a hot streak from two years ago and lacked just a bit of hyper intensity and you know the whole foaming at the mouth sense of urgency. And to some degree the fans...

Running back Ryan Grant has signed with the Redskins, according to FOXSports.com. Grant reportedly received the call with the offer from Washington while in the Bears' locker room. He was in Chicago for a tryout Tuesday. Rookie Alfred Morris has assumed the Redskins' feature role, but backups Roy Helu and Evan Royster suffered injuries against the Bengals on Sunday and...
