Cardinals and Cowboys and Packers, Oh My!
At first glimpse at the Seahawks schedule, the opening game against the Cardinals was thought to be a cake walk and the next two match-ups were going to be real tests.
Three weeks in, the Cardinals are 3-0 (defeating impressive opponents such as the Patriots and Eagles) and the Seahawks are 1-1 coming off of a trouncing of the Cowboys in week two.
This Monday night Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers come to Century Link field for an NFC match-up that has surprisingly high stakes for an early season game.
A Seahawks victory would put Seattle at 2-1, tied for second in the NFC West with the San Francisco 49ers who proved Sunday they are in fact human. A victory for the Packers would put them at 2-1 as well, a start at burying the doubts of the fans who are not sold on Green Bay’s chances at a title in the 2012-2013 season.
If Seattle can continue their dominance of Monday Night Football games (Seattle is 17-8 all-time and hasn’t lost a MNF game since 2004), they will prove to the nation they are a formidable opponent in the NFC West, and the NFL in general.

Green Bay has Mr. Discount Double-Check himself at the helm of their offense, making the Seattle secondary an obvious focus if the Seahawks want a victory Monday night.

Aaron Rodgers may have navy blue and neon green nightmares Monday night. The Seahawks sacked Rodgers eight times in the first half on Monday night.

Aaron Rodgers apologized to the fans and Mike McCarthy continued to take the high road on Tuesday.
I know it's early in the season but it's always fun to discuss and debate who the best players are in the NFL. If you ask me I still say Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback, Ray Rice is the ultimate running back and Andre Johnson is the most complete wide receiver in the game. But not right now! While these players are clearly still at the top of their game and among...
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was mild-mannered during his postgame press conference Monday after the Packers 14-12 controversial loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

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.
Players who went as top picks have been huge disappointments. Players who were not even drafted have climbed up their team’s...
