Packers are expected to go heavy with the no-huddle offense tonight

Wednesday’s PFT Live from CenturyLink Field included an in-person visit from a guy who has been on the show plenty of times by phone.  Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel stopped by the set for an in-depth chat about the Green Bay Packers.

The Packers get started tonight against the Seahawks.  The outcome for the road team may not be pretty, but it could be a much better season than the Packers have had in recent years.

Though much of it depends on the performance of the defense, the Packers’ offense could be even better; the offensive line looks to be better, Eddie Lacy could be emerging as one of the best backs in the league, and as Dunne explained it they’ll be using the no-huddle offense extensively, starting tonight.

    Eddie Lacy “could be emerging as one of the best backs in the league”?

    Ummmm, he already is.

    Get ready, Pack. Have a feeling there might be a lot of minor “injuries” for the Seahawks.

    I don’t think the no-huddle will have much effect on Seattle’s defense, but Lacy/Starks/Harris will. That is the key to this game.

    GO PACK GO!!!!!

    I guess if they are going to win it will be 48-35 scores with that defense. Why I keep hearing how Julius Peppers will make a difference and Matthews can’t stay on the field. After those 2 has beens name another player?? They are terrible and Rodgers won’t even be able to save them.

    they have a rookie center and theyre playing at the clink. yeah no huddle is a great idea. psych!!!!

    The Seachickens are going to have a hard time stopping the Packers elite offense. Lacey is going to get a 150 rushing yards tonight.

    Can’t wait for the game and seeing what the Packers offense is going to look like compared to what Kelly did in Philly last year. I think the Seahawks will present a lot of challenges since they pretty much squashed the Broncos fast paced attack.

    I hope so. Maybe, for a change, Sherman’s mouth will be open and no sound coming out.

  11. longtimefanhtr says: Sep 4, 2014 8:27 AM

    They’ve been practicing it with loud noise. Hopefully they can run it smoothly.

  12. MasMacho says: Sep 4, 2014 8:59 AM

    No point in huddling up in the CLink.

  13. crownofthehelmet says: Sep 4, 2014 8:59 AM

    Given the options this title has, I’m trying to pick out the best Lacy joke. I’ll get back to you.

  14. lifesuckshereinloserville says: Sep 4, 2014 9:37 AM

    Holy crap am I excited to get this season kicked off with tonight’s game Good luck my Packer friends. I hope for no injuries and a great game!

  15. dukeearl says: Sep 4, 2014 9:56 AM

    I second the post for no injuries and a great game.
    G’luck Packers.

    Go Hawks!

  16. dbara43 says: Sep 4, 2014 10:06 AM

    Wow if they go no huddle they might be the first team in NFL history with 18 3-and-outs by halftime.

  17. winninaintsinnin says: Sep 4, 2014 10:08 AM

    Didn’t teams see what happened to that “revolutionary no huddle Denver offense” in the SB?

    The problem with the no huddle is it further exposes your own defense. And the Pack’s defense isn’t good enough for that.

    Expect the Hawks to win going away; likely a 14-17 pt spread. Seattle’s offense will likely be as good as the Packs this year but the defenses aren’t even close.

    Also expect the Pack to be called for more PI and D holding calls than the Hawks.

    The packers fans are delusional as usual. The Seahawks will crush them tonight. The End!

  19. purpleguy says: Sep 4, 2014 10:53 AM

    Good luck to the Pack tonight. I suspect the offense will be just fine.

  20. kamthechancellor says: Sep 4, 2014 12:51 PM

    Um, no huddle is what the Broncos ran in the SuperBowl, right? Just checking.

  21. carbonriver says: Sep 4, 2014 2:01 PM

    No huddle, silent count, rookie center, center has never played game with QB and game is at the Clink….this should be fun…..

  22. carbonriver says: Sep 4, 2014 2:07 PM

    Lacey is scary though, mebane will need to be careful not to push too far up and leave a lane behind him

  23. Vim says: Sep 4, 2014 2:13 PM

    I think this will be closer than most people think. Aaron Rodgers is very properly considered to be the best QB in the NFL, and he surely knows what it takes to win the big one. He has a rushing game that is strong and proved it can be successful last year.

    I hope the Seattle defense plays up to its usual standard and avoids getting caught up in any hype. I know Russell Wilson will be a calm influence on everyone around him and will do his best to overcome whatever challenges the offense faces.

    Looking forward to a great game tonight! Hopefully no major injuries on either side tonight.

    I want to see these teams collide once again later in the year with their staffs close to full strength – wouldn’t that be something to anticipate and watch? :-)

    Go Hawks!

    It’s going to be two excellent offenses, but on the defensive side, it’s one outstanding defense and one average-to-below-average defense. The ‘Hawks should have this one, but you never know. That’s why they play the game. Can’t wait.

    Go ‘Hawks.

  25. purplepunisher says: Sep 4, 2014 5:54 PM

    That stadium is going to be so loud that you won’t be able to hear the crackling sound of Rodgers collar bone when the Seahawks sack him for the 9th time!

  26. numba1wiscosportsfan says: Sep 4, 2014 11:03 PM

    It didn’t work.
