Packers are getting more than just running back depth with Ty Montgomery

The Packers in 2016 had an opportunity other NFL teams will envy come draft time. They were able to scout their next running back not against college defenses and in a foreign offense, but against the very defenses they’ll face and in the very offense for which they’ll need Ty Montgomery in 2017.

The truth is Montgomery’s official position switch from wide receiver to running back does not just improve Green Bay’s depth in the offensive backfield. The 24-year-old gives the Packers a legitimate rushing talent; a talent previously buried by the wave of high-volume passing offenses starting in high school.

The Seahawks were 26-24 winners over the Dirty Birds back in October, but that game was at CenturyLink Field and ended with a controversial breakup of a pass intended for Julio Jones.

The Seahawks also had safety Earl Thomas in that game, but hes been out since breaking his leg on Dec. 4.

Seattles leading rusher in the October win over the Falcons was Christine Michael, who is now with the Packers. In other words, the Seahawks are a completely different team from the one Cheap Packer Jerseys that squeaked by at home against Atlanta.

The Seahawks also dont play well away from home. Seattle is just 1-7 in playoff road games all time with the lone victory coming in 1983.

We know each other so well,Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said of the USA Basketball Cheap Jerseys Falcons, coached by former Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. I think this is really, really fun. Its like the chess game against the guy that you really got to battle at because hes really good and we know were up against it, so its great fun.
