    Wigger-Pete, with his constant gum chewing, frantically pacing the sidelines, and that permanent ****-eating look on his face, is hands down the most loathsome coach in the NFL, and the perfect man to coach this despicable team of Africans.

    Unfortunately, this game is turning out the way I expected.

    Off-topic, Monfils is currently beating Federer. Just an ugly Thursday night all the way around. :eek:hwell:

    You mean the Sea****s constant knack of getting freebies? Rodgers has to run the ball. He's throwing the ball when he could run for the 1st down.

    Indeed. Nothing incredible or flashy about his play. Two would be ints dropped. Of course, should the sea****s hold on to win the media will be bowing down to wilson as usual. Sick.

    Bulaga injury was big. Green bay needs to get creative if they want a chance.

    Observations:

    Jordy not a focal point of the offense until the 4th quarter. Same old Packer story.

    Eddie Lacy is the new Trent Richardson

    Outside of Matthews and Hawk the Packer defenders are just downright dumb and worthless.

    Ha Ha Clinton Dix is aptly named. He should be laughed right out of the league.

    Jeff Janis needs to be on the field as another deep threat to compliment Jordy.

    Aaron Rodgers needs to get over himself and just throw the ball to Jordy until it doesn't work - which won't happen.

    White QBs must have been brainwashed to never ever take free yards running the ball.

    Down by 19 points why would you want to hand off to Eddie Lacy even once Let alone about 1/2 of the 4th quarter plays?

    For several years the Packers have had a dire need for a quality TE. The kind that seem to be all over the league and yet they continually F up the draft.

    It will be a rough go for the Packers with their running backs and their apparent commitment to the running game.

    packers affletes got killed biting on play action. Outschemed with wrinkles from college offenses. The sad part is this stuff is going to keep working because affletes just arent bright, and we have so few White players on defense. Cloudy minds = slow feet. So all of that affletcism doesnt mean jack. From what i saw, db bite big time on the read option pa pass, didnt even think about covering his guy. Defenders all biting on the motion by Harvin for the jet sweep and Lynch goes right up the middle. A couch potato dwf could've scored there.

    Packers offense just didnt look in sync, Jordy had a good amount of catches but no deep ones. Rodgers targetted him 14 times so thats a positive sign, the pathetic running game kept things predictable on 2nd and 3rd down allowing things to be easier for the seahawks to defend. Maybe they didnt think protection would hold up but i didnt see Jordy run deep. I am also guessing some of those passes were off because Jordy would usually catch a higher percentage of targets

    outschemed, and their dbs arent known for speed, they are pretty well rounded. Would be a hell of a lot easier to find White guys that could do the same thing, and would find many that are faster to go along.

    Rodgers had like two opportunities where he could have easily run for the first down and instead made two throws that ended in incompletions. Also, Mike McCarthy is a goddamn idiot, looked like a deer in headlights the entire game.

    Well...

    at least it wasn't as bad as the Super Bowl.

    Still, Seattle fans will be insufferable. (More so). Looking forward to their first loss of the season, even if it comes at the hands of a very dark team. No one does obnoxious and self-righteous quite like Seattle.

    Clay Matthews and Jordy were the only Packers who looked good today.

    It's downright ridiculous. I hope Philip Rivers and the Chargers can beat the ****bags at home.

    A few ugly truths for fellow CF'ers out there, I know you may not want to hear this.

    Seattle is very good, maybe the best team in the NFL. Wilson is a decent QB. They are just about impossible to beat at home. Barring any injuries, they will probably win 13-14 games and get home-field in the playoffs.

    When a virulent caste team like Seattle destroys one of the few white-friendly teams in this manner, it bites. We need to hope they are peaking early, or that some other team gets home-field, so they are forced to go on the road in January.

    It's unfortunate that Zach Miller plays for Seattle, as he looked great today. He displayed great blocking ability, often keeping Clay Matthews out of the backfield, and made a great one handed catch. On the another hand, the Packers TEs looked terrible as usual. Jake Stoneburner's hands and speed could have really helped Rodgers out there.

    The Rodgers to Jordy combination was out of sync, Aaron more than Jordy. If Rodgers had been more accurate Jordy would have had a big stat line. This was likely the toughest game Green Bay will have to play all season, against the defending champs at home with all the 12th Man hoopla celebrating their Super Bowl win.

    As for Seattle, they do look very tough to beat right now, but it's a long season. It's very rare when the team that comes roaring out of the gate and is at the top of the "power polls" and media prognostications in the first week maintains that momentum all the way through the Super Bowl. It's a league designed to have parity, not dynasties. Injuries alone often cause derailment, so I'm not ready to concede anything to the Seahawks after a single game.

    yes they are good but its one game and a new season and im not going to crown them despite what they accomplished last year. Wilson is extremely overrated. They outscheme other teams, a great scheme with a few all star players will get you to where they are. Wilson is not one of them. Lynch is. Right now for this game they used Harvin as another weapon and then as a decoy to open things up, some nice wrinkles. History says he will not stay healthy. I know they can make it work without him as in the past but it just made it that harder to defend for the packers.

    The defensive scheme is brilliant, but also needs Earl Thomas to make it work to its fullest. The rest are role players.

    I would love to see the Patriots play them, Bellicheck has great gameplans, although his defense isnt what it used to be. They played in 2012 but Brady threw 2 picks and they came back to win. Bellicheck usually has a better plan the 2nd time around.

    the offensive scheme isnt that hard to defend, pretty simple if you dont make any stupid mistakes but affletes have hard time with that. It just takes one game to have the blueprint.


    for offenses like the Packers it takes a little longer to get in sync sometimes, and the Seahawks had an advantage with practice, which is why they got that 300k fine.

    See, I'm going to disagree that Wilson is "extremely overrated". No one is calling him elite, but he's not your typical joke of a quotaback. He's somewhere in that top 10-15 range of starting QBs in the league and plays well within this system designed for his skill-set.

    The problem with some of these white-friendly teams is always the same, their almost coal-black defense. It puts an inordinate amount of pressure on the Mannings, Bradys, and Rodgers' of the world to keep the offense perfectly running because the margin of error against a team like Seattle is thin. In contrast, surrounded by a good defense, running game, and other above average weapons on offense, all Russell Wilson has to do is play within his means. I can't remember the last time an elite white QB was playing with an elite defense that made their job easier. The early 2000 Pats, perhaps?

    Manning, Brady, Rodgers, Rivers, Luck, Brees, Smith, Flacco, Dalton, Roethlisberger, Foles, Palmer, Romo, Tannehill, Stafford...Top 10 for Wilson is a no. Top 15 is pushing it. I will say that Wilson is the best black quarterback in the league right now. You all can decide how much that means. :)

    I heard Crissy Collinsworthless calling Wilson elite or some synonym of that word several times tonight. The mute button got more than its fair share of usage.

    Some observations, mostly summary of what others have pointed out:

    Brad Jones is AWFUL. His two pass interference penalties happened at the worst possible times, and clearly revealed how lost and sad he was out there. He did nothing against the run and they where gashed up the middle time and time again. Hawk is an average starter; pair him with Jones who makes the Jasper Brinklys and Manti Teos of the NFL look good, and it's no wonder the run defense was terrible. They need to upgrade immediately, is Jake Doughty still available??

    Peppers is clearly old and slow and it's perhaps unfair to ask him to switch to OLB so late in his career, he clearly is lost out there.

    Ha Ha was terrible. This team tried out Leonard, where they really so stacked at safety he couldnt get a spot?

    The Green Bay TEs are worse than mediocre, clearly the weakest part of the offense. Perhaps it's too late this season, but the position needs to be overhauled.

    Matthews looked good, Nelson as well. Rodgers looked out of sorts.

    I actually thought Lacy looked good. Ditto for Cobb. The Cornerbacks didn't look putrid either.

    I think GB will get it together, I'm not rooting for them to win the SB, but they're solid, and probably will end up being our best bet at some point in the playoffs if Philly doesn't make it all the way.

    I agree that Russell Wilson isn't over-rated He's a very good quarterback. He seems to be smart, is mobile and is pretty accurate throwing the ball. He's also about winning, not padding his stats. If Johnny Manziel in his third NFL season is as good as Wilson is in his third NFL season (including leading a winning team), I'll be happy.

    And I also agree that as long as defenses are overwhelmingly black, that in large part negates the overall performance of teams that are relatively White friendly on offense, though Green Bay, New England and now Philadelphia are annual contenders and Houston had a nice run of several years.

    Lynch for Seattle looked good. Lacy...not so much. 34 yards on 12 carries...not gonna do it.

    I'm hoping for a Patriots vs. Eagles Super Bowl.
