As we all know Seattle is the reigning Super Bowl champs and most may think they'll be a tough team to beat for various reasons. Others may argue that they are a one hit wonder and will make it far maybe as a wildcard but maybe not as far as winning another Super Bowl. I, as a packers fan, believe the latter. With that being said, that doesn't mean I don't think tomorrow will be tough.
Have you seen Marshawn Lynch's Skittle commercial? The man's motivation is skittles.. that has to intimidate you just a little bit.
As we all can recall the last time the teams met in Seattle the Seahawks left with a win after a referee fiasco that left many wondering if it was a correct call or not (it wasn't). ESPN recapped the moment, "With the clock winding down, Wilson heaved a desperation pass from Green Bay's 39-yard line into the end zone and the replacement officials ruled that Golden Tate scored while gaining simultaneous possession with defensive back M.D. Jennings. The play instantly became known as "The Fail Mary," and within days the NFL settled its labor dispute with referees."
A very sad day for us packers fans, but tomorrow will be different. Neither team is worried about the past and solely just focused on the present. Game time. Needless to say both teams are balanced, solid competitors with a handful of strong players. It will be interesting to see the outcome.
