Rookies? Who needs rookies? Every team does, in fact. However, you don’t necessarily want them starting for you on day one of week one of the first season in defense of your NFL championship.
The Green Bay Packers will open the 2014 NFL season by visiting the reigning Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks on September 4. The Packers figure to start a couple of rookies in this matchup while the Seahawks likely will only have rookies in support roles.
Advantage: Seahawks. It’s one of several edges they have in this game. See my way, way, way too early preview of the game in Oregon Sports News.
