    That said we aren't that good. Do we really have a chance here? If we do it's only because of Russell Wilson. I'm not that optimistic about this game. I love my Seahawks though and know just having Wilson alone can be enough. I just do not have faith in our D, like much at all. :pukeface:

    And we will be playing the refs; call me a conspiracy theorist, but come on, all the big market teams that got knocked out on wildcard weekend? The NFL is gonna be nervous. I'm certain Goodhell wants to see a GB/SF championship, that way at least one BIG fanbase NFC team is guaranteed to represent the NFC. I know, the NFL would never steer a game right?

    I'll be watching, I'll be praying, but is there really hope? :snack:


    I'm not sure about this... GB is not the passing attack team they were a few years ago... But I think they are built better now for a playoff run: Strong rush offense and a defense that can apply pressure and get off the field in the 4th quarter..

    As far as the refs being an excuse, A Seahawks fan is the LAST person who should be discussing the refs giving a team a win...


    They were very average against the LIONS. Against a rookie Blough who was a few throws away from winning that game. Rodgers missed SO MANY passes in that game. There defense was getting carved up by the Lions running game. I think some people here are completely myopic, they say dumb things like "we aren't that good." What does that even mean? We've beaten 2 of the top 4 NFC teams already... the SEAHAWKS with all there injuries can play with ANYBODY and it's proof by being 1" short of winning the NFC West title. The game will be close this Sunday and will be decided in the 4th quarter. to expect anything else is to deny how things have been the last 7 years. Seattle rarely, get's blown out or loses by 9 or more points. Usually if we lose it's a 1 score afair.

    Well, lets see, where was Seattle Sos this year? THE HARDEST




    Oh, here it is.

    That's not what I see there but either way... it happens every year at playoff time. Team(s) get called out for not having played anyone. I remember on one of Atlanta's recent runs hearing the same. You can only play who is on your schedule but IMHO I don't think either Seattle or GB are world beaters. Seattle will go as far as Wilson's magic will take them. GB... I dunno. I haven't watched any of their games this season.

    Good luck on Sunday!



    From Kenneth Arthur:

    ... You could argue that Green Bay is a good team and you could argue that Seattle has been at least as fortunate but you could not argue that the Packers have proven themselves against any quality opponents in 2019 other than Minnesota and the Vikings may have their own specific issues with beating this version of Green Bay. The Packers played 16 games and I would argue that they had 0 elite wins, 2 good wins (both over Minnesota), a couple of decent wins (Kansas City, Dallas, and maybe Denver), and the rest of their wins are kind of useless in proving anything for the postseason. Then they have 3 losses, including two blowouts -- one vs a great team and one vs a mediocre team -- and a loss to middling Eagles team coming off of losses to the Falcons and Lions before they stood Rodgers up at the 1.

    I won’t go over this entire thing for the Seahawks but I’d say Seattle (ranked as the 5th hardest schedule in 2019) has 1 elite win (49ers), two good wins (Rams, Vikings), and some more decent wins (Eagles x2, Steelers, Bucs)...

  • oh please, the so called" fail marry" WAS a catch by the receiver. Even the announcer, live, said "simultaneous".

  • Why dwell on regular season schedules...etc...that's old news . Post season is a new season. Every team in the playoffs earned the right to be there ; and are all capable of beating each other . Home field is and always will be an advantage ; but non more so than in the playoffs . This week's challenge is the Packers ; who are a better team especially on offense; than the Eagles ; that the Hawks beat by 1 score . This is a defining game for all arguments ; good or bad .IMO

    I don't see it like that. I agree about the 49ers and Rams games even if they did miss the game winning FG.... the rest of the games not so much.

    Cousins has always been garbage IMO... definitely not worth his contract and I'll say the same thing about Wentz even though he gets some benefit of the doubt because the Eagles were totally banged up in the late season game and he didn't survive 2 series in the playoff game. People really didn't think the Eagles were going to do anything with a 40 year old backup did they?

    Steelers without Ben for half the game in a 2 point win and the Bucs were still a 7-9 garbage team... much like the Falcons.

    Just calling it like I see it... and I watch the Seahawks every week and root for them unless they are playing Atlanta.

    I definitely think they can go in there and knock off GB. But the Hawks laying an egg wouldn't surprise me either.

    Cheers.

  • Packers D is middle of the road. The Hawks can run against them. They have also given up the most passes over 20 yards of any team in the league. Going to be a VERY tough game to win, but you never know. Lace em up and let's see what happens. If it is within one score in the 4th quarter??? I'll take Russ over Rodgers, at least the current version of Rodgers. That being said, both of the QB's are ridiculous when the game is on the line.

    You'll get no argument from me on that. I've been here since 2011... my first game at the Clink was Falcons/Hawks with T Jack in I think week 5 that year... and when Wilson came out I was one of the doubters. "He's too short" I remember thinking.

    Now? Hell I wish the Falcons had him. He's totally clutch. I'm expecting it to come down to one score in the 4th... been like that all year for the Hawks... no reason to think Sunday will be any different.

    At any rate, no matter what happens I will say that seeing the Patriots and Saints go down in the same weekend made these playoffs great again. Gonna be fun to watch. :mrgreen:

  • Oh to be a Saints fan right now. 3 Straight years of losing on the last play basically.
    That Minnesota Miracle, all the guy has to do is wait for Diggs to catch the ball, tackle him and the game is over.
    Last year, maybe the worst non-call in the history of the playoffs takes away a Superb Owl birth.
    And on Sunday, they lose but there is the "push off" controversy. I watched Inside The NFL last night and the angle they show is way different than what they showed live. It wasn't blatant, but it certainly does look like he pushed off. That being said, I prefer they let em play when both guys are fighting for it.
    But, I CAN see why Saints fans were angry.

    Most definitely... but I feel no pity for the Saints. I consider it karma for bounty gate... and the endless 28-3 trolling. Those hated rivalries!

    Good luck Sunday.

  • Yep. It sucks that two of the Patriot's titles came at the hand of really bad coaching at the end of the game by the Hawks then the Falcons. Neither team had any business losing the game.
    Hawks only gave up a 10 point lead, but still had plenty of chances to add to their lead. I won't even bring up the Atlanta thing, I can't even fathom how frustrating that was.

    Seahawks D is middle of the road. The Packers can run against them(they give up 117 yards a game). During the regular season, running backs would average 9.5 yards per catch, the 3rd most in football, as well as 51.1 total receiving yards per game, which was the 4th most.. Going to be a VERY tough game to win, but you never know. Lace em up and let's see what happens. If it is within one score in the 4th quarter??? I'll take Rodgers over Russ.

  • Feels like a tossup. Especially IF the Refs don't shaft us and help Rodgers out. That is a REAL factor.

  • Throw stats out the window in a game like this. They mean jack $h!t.

    Do you seriously think Wilson will throw 5 interceptions again?...I certainly don't.

    The key for the Hawks are takeaways, and intangibles especially in the cold. Probably for the Blockheads as well.

    While Robert Shaw wants to discredit our defense. They limited Philly to 3 FG's and they were in the red zone and denied numerous times. And did it 2 times in Philly in one year. 8-1 on the road isn't a fluke regardless of who you play.

  • Red Zone D was money last week. Shoot, both times we played at Philly. Keep them 3's, score touchdowns, force 2 or 3 turnovers and run the ball well. VERY good shot of coming out with the Dub.

  • No.

    If we beat the Packers it gets tougher.

    The packers played what looks on paper to me to be the easiest schedule in the league.

    The niners played a pretty damn tough one, and if Minnesota wins they might be one of those super dangerous teams of destiny like the nationals.
