GREEN BAY – The Green Bay Packers know tonight’s game against the Seattle Seahawks is the last real test before getting on the field for real against the 49ers.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers still hasn’t gotten the team into the end zone, so he’d like to do that, as the Packers hope to straighten some things out.
“It's important to get out there and make sure you're thinking about the right sort of things and making the plays and not making those mistakes but a lot of young guys are playing, it’s preseason football, there's going to be those mistakes, it's interesting to see who separates themselves in the live game action,” said Rodgers.
“It's preseason. We're trying to set a tone for how it's going to be in the regular season, so it’s important that we come out and start fast. We want to be a better defense this year so we got to start from game one, so all this is just building up to our first game for the season,” said defensive lineman Ryan Pickett.
“I think this week is just being consistent. I think Seattle is a great opportunity to really burst out on the scene, they got a good defense a lot of physical corners and safeties I think it's going to be a great match, just the opportunity to go out there and play, strive to play with the best of them,” said wide receiver Jeremy Ross.
The last time the Packers and the Seahawks met was the infamous “Fail Mary” game. The 24 yard touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to Golden Tate gave the Seahawks a 14-12 win.
