Well, last night kinda sucked. Injuries, poor play, mental errors, and a sharp performance by the Seahawks all combined to give the Packers a loss in week one.

But it's just 0-1.

We'll spend today looking back at last night's game, and it starts off with a look at the instant reactions from the other people covering the Packers.

Game notes: Packers' new center had only one glitch |
We'll have more on Linsley coming up, but it's a unanimous thought among APC's writers that he performed extremely well under the circumstances last night.

Notes - Bryan Bulaga injury may have ripple effects for Packers | JSOnline
If Bulaga's knee injury is as expected, he could be out only a few weeks, which would be huge for the line's recovery. Still, if he is indeed out for any length of time, the team will almost certainly have to add another player to play tackle.

Insider: Thumbs up to safeties, down to mental errors |
It was one game and there were a handful of missed tackles, but the safety combo of Micah Hyde and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix gave Packers fans reasons to be very optimistic about the position moving forward.
