Green Bay believes Eddie Lacy has 'point to prove' in Lambeau return

Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers looks to pass during the first half against the Seattle Seahawks at Lambeau Field in Green Bay Wisconsin Green Bay believes Eddie Lacy has 'point to prove' in Lambeau return
Noah Ferguson | 10 September, 2017, 08:55

The last time Seattle won at Lambeau was 1999, in coach Mike Holmgren's return after leaving Green Bay.

For all of his new age approach, this is an old school offense based on a power running game to set up the play-action pass. "He really seems to be in the best condition that I can remember him in the last four or five years anyway".

"Eddie Lacy's been an excellent back for us in the past", McCarthy said.

In examining the numbers, it's astonishing how similar they are. Green Bay's defense though will need to sharpen up as they will have to match the skill of their offense if they're going to compete with the league's best and a strong showing at home in week one would be a huge building block.

Pete Carroll is known to have themed practices for each day of the week such as "Turnover Thursday" and "No repeat Friday".

It's no coincidence both of these teams have been in the playoffs every year in that stretch except 2011, when Seattle did not qualify. Take him out and it's an entirely different game for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense. The screen game could also come into play, allowing Montgomery to get into space.

However, he is a member of the team we plan on the Packers beating down come Sunday. "Like you said Eddie's a very good runner and it'll be a good test for us", Jake Ryan said. They insist not, having gotten rid of all the angst and disappointment from that collapse well before they gathered for training camp.

Will it decide the location of a potential playoff rematch? Enter Blair Walsh, who delivered a big playoff victory for the Seahawks while kicking for the Minnesota Vikings.

There may be some answers with a few of the experienced players on the Seahawks offensive line with Oday Aboushi battling Mark Glowinski for a starting right guard and Luke Joeckel challenging Odhiambo for a left tackle spot.

"I think that's the fun thing about Marty - he's really taken advantage of those opportunities, he's been here since the beginning of the offseason program", Rodgers said. That's not really the case.

"We've had time to, on a personal note, communicate in the postseason".

These two teams are evenly matched.

So much has happened since the Seahawks won their only Super Bowl following the 2013 season, but one thing has stayed the same - the goal to win it again.

Could this be a preview of a January NFC game? However, the main receiver that one should focus on is Jordy Nelson. "You never know. You learn a lot in this week". The year before, he notched a 116.9 quarterback rating while completing 25 of 33 passes for 249 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-17 win. His effect was low density before forcing the second most pressures past year on the Packers roster with 37. In 2010, young B.J. Raji and cornerback Tramon Williams were playmakers at season's end.

The latest addition is Quinton Dial, a 6-foot-5, 318-pound defensive lineman who signed on Tuesday after being released by the San Francisco 49ers.

The numbers vary slightly depending on the oddsmaker, but SuperBook.com's odds this week are representative: The Patriots are favorites at 3 to 1, followed by the Packers and Seattle Seahawks (10 to 1 each), Dallas Cowboys (12 to 1), and Atlanta Falcons and Pittsburgh Steelers (both 13 to 1).

But that's next week. The previous 4 seasons all started on the road. They gave up 42 points to the Chiefs and struggled at times on offense. "It's going to help our defense out".
