I don’t mind admitting I kind of want the Panthers to win so that the Packers have another home game but I don’t expect the Seahawks to co-operate. The Seahawks are, after all, the defending Champions and they’re really a much better team than the Panthers.
The Panthers have also lost their inside rushing defense in the person of 311 pound Star Lotulelei, one of those Pacific Island monsters who broke a foot this week in practice.
And then there is Century Link Field, one of the loudest Domes in the league. The Pack will not be daunted by that, but the Panthers are younger and rawer and less used to distractions.
So here’s hoping for an upset, not that I dislike the Seahawks, but that I actively support the Pack and am a total cheesehead.
The game is on Faux starting at 8 pm.
