Packers stick it to Holmgren's Seahawks!

WOW! I love me some Green Bay Packers football! The rain didn't let up for most of the day Saturday, but that didn't stop the 69,761 fans from cheering or the team from sticking it to the Seattle Seahawks. The final score of the Packers vs Seahawks game at Lambeau Field was 48-13. Nice. The most points scored by a Packers team in a preseason game in 69 years!

Brett Favre and the starting offense looked like they were in a much better groove than they did against the Pittsburgh Steelers the week prior, which resulted in a field goal, a touchdown and a handful of first downs. Bring in Aaron Rodgers and a few of the other second team Packers players, and the ball kept rolling.

James Jones, rookie wide receiver from San Jose, said it best, "Ain't no better feeling than scoring your first touchdown, the Lambeau Leap. I was just excited about that." Word.

The Green Bay Packers defense looked fierce (I know, I know, it's just preseason football). The defense amassed seven sacks, six forced turnovers and scored two touchdowns from Seattle fumbles. For people who bought cheap Green Bay Packers tickets for this game; they definitely got their moneys worth!
