Seahawks vs. Packers: NFL Preseason Week 3 Preview


After the first two games of the NFL preseason, the Seattle Seahawks are looking like a team that lives up to the hype. The starters are getting their reps in workmanlike fashion. Younger players like Jermaine Kearse, and Christine Michael are trying to make an impact to earn more playing time in the regular season. The team is blowing their opponents away with depth and confidence unseen in a Seattle team since the Washington Huskies football teams of the early 90′s. Is it safe to say that, from a fan’s perspective, this is the most irrelevant preseason in team history?

The fans are confident the team will be good. The national press is confident the team will be good. The players themselves, are oozing with extreme confidence and they’re showing it the right way: through hard play and body language instead of talk and predictions. The only thing left to do is play the games. But before the games start, we have to watch the next second half of the preseason.

This Friday at 5pm(PST) the Seahawks will play the Packers in Green Bay. It is a rematch of last year’s Monday night football game in which the Seahawks neared double digit sacks on Aaron Rodgers, and won on a last second touchdown pass from Russel Wilson to Golden Tate.

Being the preseason, there shouldn’t be as much physical play this time around. However, don’t be surprised if the Packers try for a big play or two early in the game when the first teams are facing off. At the buzzer, the game should probably end the way most games do these days, with a lopsided Seahawks victory.

    I’m looking at the Packers “depth chart” now, but it looks more like a “worst possible case” chart to me. Wish our team could play the 49ers right now!

      Why play the niners now when it doesn’t count. See you week 2, when it really does count. You all got a beat down coming. Word

        Why not mark September 16th on your calendar and get back to me then Goat. Last I remember it was Seattle 42 & SF 13. Word…I mean MATH!!!!

    Just pre-season stuff here man… nobody should get too carried away with the result… win or lose. It’s a travel game and the locals will be loopy after the Seahawks win last season. Let’s get out of there with a decent showing and no injuries. A loss here wouldn’t hurt my feelings one bit. Might cool down the hype machine and lower media expectations a bit… which is fine by me. 12th man know the truth… We’ll roll when the games matter.

    Seahawk fans will hang their hat on any nail they find. Pre season wins make you happy? Might awa well live it up, week 2 is closing fast and then you will be crying. So go ahead enjoy your pre season wins, the real deal is heading your way. Seattle needs 12 men just to win at home, without the crowd you all are weak, weak I say!
