The Green Bay Packers are still reeling from their 36-16 loss to the Seattle Seahawks last night in the season opener, and have absolutely nothing good to show for their efforts.

Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett calls Aaron Rodgers a vegetable

Like the snake and the mongoose or the lion and the hyena, it’s only natural for defensive linemen to hate quarterbacks, but if you were to ask them why I doubt that any of them could be as eloquent as Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett.

Seattle Seahawks re-sign DE Michael Bennett

Part of the reason why they were able to get Bennett for so cheap is because they won the Super...
