The Seattle Seahawks play the Green Bay Packers in week one of the 2017 regular season on Sunday. While this will not make or break either teams’ season, winning is always important. Listen as we breakdown what might happen.

Host Kevin Daggett and 12th Man Rising co-experts Todd Vandenberg and Lee Vowell like to talk Seahawks. Especially Todd and Lee. Mostly, it is meaning ramble, but Kevin is great.

This week the three discuss what Seattle has done in training camp and the preseason. Plus, what to expect during week one of the real games. There were some surprise cuts and some young standouts. Will Russell Wilson play more like he did in the second half of 2015? Or like the injured Wilson of 2016?

Who will get the start against the Packers week one at running back? Thomas Rawls appears to be penciled in as the starter, but is he hurt. Eddie Lacy would make a great story should he do well against his former team in Green Bay.

Rookie Shaquill Griffin might play 70 percent of the snaps against the Packers. How will the Seahawks corner do in his first game as a pro against the arguably the best quarterback in the NFL?

Sheldon Richardson is new to Seattle. But the Seahawks have hopes he can fix the interior pass rush issue of last year.
