Why Dallas Lost to Green Bay - Why Seattle will Win

Print Article   

Another NFC Championship for Seattle this Sunday is on the horizon as they face the Green Bay Packers, who beat Dallas on Sunday, with a controversial call on a fourth down catch by Dez Bryant that was over ruled not a catch, that has all the national media and sports talk shows arguing whether or not the play should have been allowed as called and how it affected the outcome of the game. It has also been stated Dallas outplayed the Packers, however the only thing that matters is the scoreboard, and while my main interest was in the point spread cover with Dallas, the scoreboard read 26-21 Green Bay. Quite frankly Dallas has no one to blame but their defensive scheme in this game, nothing more and nothing less. If I would have told you that Tony Romo would only have 4 incomplete passes in this game with no interceptions, and RB Murray would have over 120 yards rushing and the Packers would have less than 27 points total, you would assume Dallas won the game, right? Well that assumption of course would be wrong and it all points to the defense of Dallas as the culprit. Dallas allowed a one legged quarterback to beat them, that is the bottom line. There is no doubt that Aaron Rodgers on one leg is better than half the QB's in the NFL and his performance was one for the ages. Dallas made no adjustments at halftime to squeeze the pocket and put pressure on Rodgers and force him out of the pocket enough to disrupt the Green Bay passing attack which had 306 yards through the air with only 1 sack all day. Aaron Rodgers went 9 for 9 in the fourth quarter of this game, enough said. That is the key reason why Dallas lost the game, simply put they failed to blitz in obvious passing situations and put any type of pressure on Rodgers with any consistency all day long. Adding salt to the wound on the defensive side of the ball is the fact the Dallas secondary was very poor in tackling and gave up enough big plays that at days end that was the difference in the ball game, many of them by a rookie wide receiver. Now we look ahead to this weekend, and I can assure you Seattle will not make the same mistakes that the Cowboys did. When the Seahawks routed Green Bay in the season opener back in September on a Thursday Night, they pressured Rodgers all night long, created a safety out of a blitz on him and never broke a sweat in beating up the Packers by 20 points. The good news for Green Bay is that they have improved during the season, but the bad news is, so has Seattle. Seattle's defense over the past 6 games has been as good as ever, and bear in mind what that defense did last year in the post season and the Super Bowl. A few key points to consider is that Seattle has a shut down corner in Sherman that takes away Rodgers best option with WR Cobb, and the coverage and tackling ability that Seattle has in the secondary is vastly better than that of Dallas. The pass rush and various blitzes the Seahawks will employ here under the expert guidance of defensive coordinator Dan Quinn will be a huge issue for Rodgers in this game and no doubt his demise. Throw in the fact the Packers gave up 145 yards rushing and have to face all world RB Lynch here, in the toughest stadium in the NFL is also going to be a huge concern for Green Bay's average at best rush defense. The fact Green Bay allowed an immobile QB in Romo to have only 4 incompletions in the game Sunday in their home stadium, and now face a mobile and dangerous dual threat QB in Russel Wilson who can also stretch the field moving out of the pocket also is going to be a huge problem for Green Bay. I do not see a good outcome for Green Bay on Sunday in Seattle, and Aaron Rodgers may in fact be the best QB in this game, and the best QB in the NFL, but with one leg and no chance of near enough recovery time to heal and having to face this opportunistic defense, he will look human on Sunday and Seattle will not repeat the mistakes that Dallas did on the defensive side of the ball. The Seahawks are currently listed as a 7.5 favorite in this game with a total at 46.5 (same total as the first game which went OVER) according to CG Technology's line at the M Resort in Las Vegas.
