Eating up two timeouts was useful. Getting a first down would have been useful too. On the other hand, the Packers hadn't really moved the ball after the first quarter. Every Packers drive except one after the first 17 minutes went nowhere. That one productive drive was mostly the run game. Up to that point, Rodgers had thrown for only 130 yards and was intercepted twice (he later drove 48 yards in the last minute to get 178 for the game). Meanwhile, Seattle also wasn't moving the ball and had only scored on a fake field goal. I think MM could have been more aggressive, but we should remember that neither offense had done much and the Packers were up 12 points with 5 minutes left. http://www.pro-football-reference.com/boxscores/201501180sea.htm#vis_drives::none
