The Seattle Seahawks defense took advantage of Aaron Rodgers in a game when they sacked him 8 times for 39 yards, Chris Clemons played like a man on a mission and his mission help Seattle to their Second win of the season. Yes the Seahawks unloaded on Rodgers and his Green Bay Packers and through great efforts by Clemons and Brandon Mebane they showed the Packers they were a force not to be taken lightly. The Seahawks gave the packers trouble throughout all 4 quarters of the game. Clemons got to Rodgers to register 4 sacks and Mebane sacked the MVP 2 times. Then the Seattle linebacker Bruce Irvin threw in 2 more sacks of his own. The Green Bay Packers offensive line looked over-matched in the game all night long.
The Seahawks offense was able to put just enough points on the board to win by 2 points. If you were looking for an offensive shoot out you didn’t get it in this game. Seattle’s rookie quarterback Russell Wilson who has played like a veteran at time this season was able to put two touchdowns on the scoreboard. He threw for only 130 yards completing just 10 of his 21 attempts, his 2 touchdowns out shinned his counterpart Aaron Rodgers who couldn’t put a touchdown pass up in this game largely due to the efforts of the Seattle Seahawks defense who may have bent at times but would not break.
This Seahawks team needs to be taken seriously, they beat the Packers 14-12 and the Cowboys last week. The Seattle Defense is ranked 4th in the NFL in total team defense and they fall to 10th in passing yards. They really stop the run well and jump to number 2 against the rush. When it comes to sacks there is no better team in the NFL currently, the Seahawks defense in ranked number one in sacks in the NFL.
If the quarterback can’t stay on his feet, they can’t complete the pass. The Seahawks know that better than anyone else this season and they are on a mission to show the world just how great this defense can be. If the Seahawks can continue to lay the way they have been, it is going to be a very exciting season for Seahawks fans. Now people are trying to blame the Packers loss on a bad call by the replacement officials. I say when a defense plays as well as the Seahawks did last night, things can go your way. The Seahawks defense played a great game and people need to realize that, it was their play that won this game, not a bad call by the officials……….

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was under a ton of pressure in the first half of his Monday Night Football match-up against the Seattle Seahawks. Rodgers was so jumpy in the pocket that he just simply slip and feel to the ground while trying to set his feet for a pass.
This is not something you see everyday, especially from an NFL MVP.

NFL players are fed up with the replacement officials, and they're no longer afraid to speak their minds about it. A handful of Packers players blasted the league on Monday night after falling victim to a horrible call in Seattle, and Drew Brees is also among those who have been critical of the officials. Aaron Rodgers bit his tongue for the most part on Monday night, not saying...

After being on the losing-end of quite possibly the worst call in professional football history (and certainly the most scrutinized), Packers QB Aaron Rodgers stepped up to the mic on his weekly ESPN Radio show yesterday, where he calmly and clearly stated exactly what needed to be said about the NFL and their ongoing labor dispute with the referees...
Aaron Rodgers has not been an elite fantasy quarterback this season but should produce against the Saints on Sunday.
It is already week four in the National Football League and for fantasy football owners that means it is already time for bye weeks. For instance this week top fantasy quarterbacks such as Ben Roethlisberger and Andrew Luck are on bye weeks. Big Ben and...

So I have to apologize to everyone for my Aaron Rodgers call this week. I said he’d be the 11th best QB this week and called it not once but TWICE. Boy is there egg on my face…seeing as he only finished 25th according to yahoo. This is the point where I’d gloat if I hadn’t called Cam the #1 starting quarterback this week. Can we call a truce? In the end, tonight’s...

The 2012 NFL Fantasy Football season is now three weeks old. If you have been paying close attention, some of the stats thus far from players who have been perennial first or second round picks have simply been mind blowing. It almost resembles bizarro world.
