Either you want to ’try’ to be annoying or you have the thought process of ezg. Either way I won’t bite on the preseason nonsense. Rodgers played 1 series and had 3pts. Lacy played later with the backups today.
But if you want to comment about the Packers….. how about shutting down the SEA offense huh? Wilson played the whole first half and managed 3 pts. Nice!
The Seahawks are not a high scoring team.They beat you with defense and pounding the ball.They had you right where they wanted you.

Yeah, it kinda reminds me of 2010 when the Packers finished the season with something like 19 players on IR and had numerous other injuries throughout the season and even during the playoffs. The starting lineup was in a constant state of flux. Remind me of how disasterous that season was. Did it end badly for the Packers? ROFLMAO

I'm not claiming that. As I have pointed out, I don't need to make that claim because the rest of the world has done it for me. Every prognosticator, analyst, expert and bettor has been saying it for years. And they have been right about the NFC North. I'm not claiming that the Packers are better than other teams in the conference. Certainly, teams like the 49ers and Seahawks deserve to be favorites over the Packers. And I'm sure the NFC East will produce at least one very strong team, as will the NFC South.

That is good to know. I'm glad the Seahawks game plan was to have their starting QB pass for 126 yards in more than a half of play and mostly while playing against backups. Getting sacked 3 times and throwing 2 Ints was good strategy too. I saw what the Seahawks could do when they played the Broncos last week. I'm more than happy with how our backups played against their starters. But you are football ignorant so I completely understand that YOU attach significance to preseason scores. I hope this loss doesn't hurt the Packers playoff hopes! ROFLMAO

Green Bay Packers: C+
Unfortunately for the Green Bay Packers, first-round pick defensive end Datone Jones only played one snap this preseason prior to suffering an ankle injury, which hurts their overall grade on the report card.
Some of the rookies who have been able to play, however, have shown promise this preseason.
Eddie Lacy has only received eight carries, but he's gained an average of five yards per carry.
His rookie running back counterpart, Johnathan Franklin, has struggled. The fourth-round pick has only gained 23 yards on nine carries thus far. Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel wrote that Franklin “can’t get out of neutral,” and an anonymous NFL personnel man told McGinn that Franklin is "not a real impressive guy."
There may not be any Packers rookie facing greater pressure than left tackle David Bakhtiari, who is expected to start immediately in place of injured veteran Bryan Bulaga. Most importantly, he has been solid in pass protection with a plus-1.7 grade in that area from Pro Football Focus, although he did allow a sack versus the St. Louis Rams.
The standout rookie for the Packers thus far, however, has been fifth-round pick cornerback Micah Hyde.
Filling in for Casey Hayward as the slot cornerback versus the Rams, Hyde showed playmaking ability as he racked up a sack, two tackles for loss and two pass breakups, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. He could make an immediate impact as the Packers’ dime defensive back.

Well you can talk if your team ever stops two things.

Aaron in three pre-season games doesnt have a TD Note how they try to show the fans the positive of not scoring...( If Rodgers doesn't play in the preseason finale, he'll finish August 17-of-24 passing (70.8 percent) for 237 yards (9.9 YPA), and no touchdowns or picks. Perhaps most promisingly, Rodgers showed outstanding chemistry with Jermichael Finley.) Let me add that's all good stats but the bottom line here still is No TDs in three games. I see the Packers slide starting.... VIKINGS HO!

Green Bay — Based on the evidence, the Green Bay Packers will enter the regular season with David Bakhtiari at left tackle, Don Barclay at right tackle and Marshall Newhouse on the bench.

Then it will be on coach Mike McCarthy and his offensive line coach, James Campen, to make it work.

An executive in personnel for a National Football League team said that Barclay would be the Achilles' heel of the Packers.

An opposing assistant coach said Saturday that if he were working for the Packers he would be most concerned about starting a rookie, Bakhtiari, against the murderer's row of pass rushers on his side.

The coach also brought up the name of the heroic Greek with the lone vulnerability.

"I think it'll be the Packers' Achilles' heel," the coach said, referring to left tackle.

Another personnel man said it should be obvious that the Packers are in considerable trouble at tackle.

"They've got two big play-makers outside, and they've both been hurt," said the scout. "Then you want to put all your eggs in (Jermichael) Finley's basket? Let's wait and see what he does under duress. And they're going to have to manage the left tackle and right tackle situation.

"It's not going to be just walk on the field and score 28 points every week."On Friday night against Seattle, the Packers encountered a top-five defense missing Chris Clemons and Cliff Avril, two excellent pass-rushing defensive ends. The Seahawks' third bonafide rush end, Bruce Irvin, played merely seven snaps.

Bakhtiari spent most of the first half against Benson Mayowa, a promising free-agent rookie. Barclay had a few snaps against the powerful Red Bryant, but more often than not his opponents were O'Brien Schofield, Mike Morgan, Jaye Howard and Michael Bennett.Having watched the two youthful starters for three games, one factor that stands out is how small they are by league standards. Bakhtiari is 6 feet 4˝ inches and 304 pounds, and Barclay is 6-4 and 307.

They knew for the last three years the Sacks Rodgers has taken & still they didn't draft a tackle . You know when the coaches are admitting the tackles are bad the slide is starting. I am right once again.... VIKINGD HO!
