Thread: How do you beat the Seahawks?

  1. #1

    How do you beat the Seahawks?

    Are they even beatable? IDK.

    I think there offense is pretty good. Then again, is it better than Dallas? I don't know about that. I feel like if we hold them to 21 points, we will be in a good place.

    The defense is insane. How are we going to beat them? What can we do to take advantage of them?

    To me, we need to sell out and do whatever it takes to stop the run, including spying Russ w/ a speedy linebacker (probably Clay, unfortunately). Their receivers don't scare me too much. I would play them similar to how we played Dallas today.

    -Protect Rodgers. He's been kept pretty clean the past few games.
    -Take what the defense gives you. Don't force the ball. Don't wait for a 50 yard kill shot. Dink and dunk and just score fucking points.
    -Stay healthy. Bulaga going out of the week 1 game pretty much killed the offense.
    -Use the entire field. Their "strategy" in game 1 was woeful.
    -Don't let Brad Jones get on the plane

    They are beatable, but not by a team that is built like we are... we are soft philosophically, and we don't believe in playing defense for its own sake. Our defense is a function of our offense, and generally requires that our offense stake us to a lead. Absent that scenario, we are very beatable against even average teams, i.e. Buffalo.

    If we had any semblance of a defense whatsoever, I'd say we have a chance, b/c talentwise, offense vs. offense, I think we have the edge; but our defense is such a mess, and the coaching is so bad, that there is no way we can close the gap.

    Hopefully Capers will be shown the door, and we can infuse some talent into the ILB position and along the DL, i.e. a couple of run stopping NT types the likes of which we kicked out of town from last year.

    TT's approach to building a defense is seriously flawed, but if we can get a competent DC to have input on player procurement, maybe we can improve enough to be a threat before Rodgers run is over.

    We have to be effective running the ball
    Protect AROD
    No turnovers
    Keep Russell Wilson in the pocket
    Contain their run game
    Win the turnover battle


    and yes..we may need to do all 5 of those to win
    TJ WATT WOULD HAVE LOOKED GREAT IN GREEN N GOLD !!!

    I think it's imperative to do all 5.

    However, if you'd ask me before the season if we'd win in Foxboro, I'd have told you no.....so there it is: any given Sunday.

    Effective run blocking by the OL and a heavy dose of Eddie Lacy.

    I don't think we can beat the Seahawks at their place without being able to win at the LOS on offense. If we can't run the ball, I don't see how we have a chance. TJ Lang needs to take his aggression out on the Seahawk DL at the snap next week.

    If we can run, it will open up the passing game. Without the run, the Seahawks will take away any short passing game and I'm not sure we can rely on Rodgers throwing it deep...he didn't look particularly good at it today with the leg.
    It's such a GOOD feeling...13 TIME WORLD CHAMPIONS!!

    And we haven't but we did beat them in Lambeau.

    Anyways, I think we need a heavy dose of Lacy. No East-West shit, he needs to slam it down their throat and I think he can

    Have to play FLAWLESS FOOTBALL in all 3 aspects of the game. We have a very slim chance but I just don't see it with Rodgers being limited. And as Wist says, our Defense is just not good enough.

    We have 0 chance.
    Swede: My expertise in this area is extensive. The essential difference between a "battleship" and an "aircraft carrier" is that an aircraft carrier requires five direct hits to sink, but it takes only four direct hits to sink a battleship.

    Tharold Simon and a fairly unimpressive pass rush outside of Bennett.

    To bad we can't trade Brad Jones to Seattle, that would assure a Packer win.

    You always have a chance. Who would have thought we'd go into Buffalo and lay that egg? If Seattle comes into the game thinking all they have to do is show up they might have a problem on their hands.

    Tony is having fun.

    The Seahawks certainly realize what the Green Bay Packers are capable of.

    They will be well prepared to defeat Green Bay. That's a very solid team.

    Unfortunately I think this will go a lot like the Seahawk/Panther game. Close for awhile before they pull away.

    Really need the receivers to step up and get physical.
