Aros' Fearless Prediction Thread (Patriots @ Seahawks)

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • It's easy to picture this another close game where the offense just can't quite capitalize on what the defense gives them and comes up just a little short. It's already happened twice this year. Besides, this is the point in a rookie quarterback's first season where we tend to see regression, where he hasn't quite kept his learning pace with the tape that's starting to build on him. We've seen it with almost every other quarterback out there. Hard to argue Wilson will be that different. And it's the first game of a very tough schedule, that, considering the opponents, is a lot tougher than it appeared at the beginning of the year.

    But we're 2-2 in those close games. They've capitalized as many times as they haven't, and they're starting to gel. We're starting to see things between the receivers and quarterback that we've been wanting - screaming/begging/pleading - to see. We're seeing some promise in the passing game. We're seeing that same stingy defense, not giving up but a handful of touchdowns on the year. And we're seeing it all at home in a big, big game.

    This time the offense squeaks it out. This time they avoid the messy turnovers, the dumb mistakes, the backbreaking penalties, and the stalled drives. This time they punch it in just enough to counter Brady's massive offensive attack, helped just enough by a very tough and opportunistic defense that gets the turnovers they kept missing the last couple of games.

    Patriots 20

    Now pass me some more of that damned Kool-Aid!

  • 30-24, Seahawks win. It's Wilson's coming-out party as a passer, because we know we can't win against the Patriots sticking only to the run. The Patriots have a crap secondary, Football Outsiders has their pass defense ranked 23rd at the moment, and ours is 5th; and we've faced a fair number of elite receivers. (Fitzgerald, Jennings, Smith, Witten, etc.)

    Noticed NONE of those guys are slot WR, and AZ ONLY has Fitz the rest stink.

    Also you have not faced a QB on top of his game yet, where NE has faced Manning and Flacco.. Also dont let yardage etc fool you the Pats D kept every O in check except for Baltimore. they averaged roughly 13 points when the game still matters... and I put Wilson somewhere just ahead of Kolb and Locker but way way behind Manning and Flacco.

  • I hate picking the Seahawks on this one because I've been backwards all year long but I'm going to anyway. And I am going to predict a few more points this week from our offense and the defense at home keeps the Pats under their scoring average.

  • 60% chance of rain Sunday for gametime. Can't figure this one is going to be a pass-happy, nor high-scoring affair. Please gawd we must win the turnover battle.

    Hawks - 17

  • We will get to brady early and often, disrupting their rythem. They will not run on us at all.
    On the flip side, our O still sucks. However, we keep pounding them on the ground and make enough passing plays to keep their D honest. Beast mode breaks one in the fourth to seal it.

    Not sure who you're referring to here, but if it's in response to my "But we're 2-2 in those close games," comment, may I suggest some reading comprehension courses. We're also 1-0 in games that weren't close.

  • I really want them to win, I think this game is a crucial one for their season as they will go into SF 4 days later but I don't think it happens. New England's offence is ridiculous and their defence I think is slightly under rated they're playing well.

    New England 28
    Seattle 10

    Hope I'm wrong though.

  • I am going to be keying on Kam Chancellor this week as well as our inside LB's and their ability to cover NE's TE's. Frankly, Kam has been struggling this season covering big TE's (even at home) and I am concerned that he may struggle again against Gronk and/or Hernandez.

    Can our DE's get any pressure on Brady? The only team that had any success was Arizona and that was from their double A-gap blitzing LB's. We should think about employing the same strategy if Brady slices us up on the first couple of drives.

    I just have a hard time believing our defense can keep their offense under 20 points. Remember, our offense doesn't seem to be able to score more than 20. You do the math.

    If NE gets 550 total yards of offense, I'll eat my own arse.

    Aside from all of the horrible spelling and abbreviations (TLT = total?), your little troll post is not likely to garner the reactions you desire.

    Patriots - 24

    The passing game comes together somewhat. 2 long TD's to Tate and Rice. Lynch gets his 100+yds and a TD. Miller on a short slant for another TD. I have seen this...

  • Hawks are due one special team or defensive TD, which if they get it will be enough for the win

    SEA 20 - NE 16

    Seattle's bend but don't break D hold's the patriots to 1 TD and 3 field goals in the redzone. The game ends with Brady being pressured by Clemons and throwing his 2nd pick of the game.

  • There's no way NE scores 30. They got 30 on Denver and Denver didn't play very well.

    Seattle is much better than Denver on defense. I think there's going to be alot of running- Both teams will want to prove they are for real running the ball.

    Seattle-20
    England- 17 Seattle drives late and kicks the game winning FG. BRady and BB cry like usual as a result.

  • I see it tied at 17 going into the forth quarter - then the Seahawks score 7 on a long, time consuming drive. This is then followed by a pick-6 for Sherman that ices the game. Final score 31-17 Seahawks. I dreamed it this way.

    THIS :th2thumbs:

    My first reply to Todd's "fearless" thread.....

    Everyone please take notice:
    Russell's QB production has gotten better with each game so far......
    I see him throwing for MORE than last week's 220 yards (and change).....
    It might not be better than Jan, I mean, Tom Brady's numbers ~ BUT IT WILL BE GOOD ENOUGH !!

    D, (as usual) steps up and comes to play.....
    we win turnover battle.....

    Jan Brady goes home from his first trip to Seattle, IN PAIN & with the loss !!

    Seahawks ~ 24
    Patsey's ~ 20

  • offense is not good enough (yet)...so I do not see scoring a lot since we have not (yet)

    I do see our D up for this though so I do not see their average 30 points.

    I think it will be:

    Pats 20
    Hawks 13

    This is one of the games we shoudl do some crazy stuff nobody expects on offense...like a f*ck it game if we get down early.

    Well, we beat the other Manning at his house last year, and he won the Super Bowl that year, as you well know. We also beat Flacco at our house last year. I know you're looking for reasons to think our secondary isn't as elite as you think it is, but...all I can say is, they are; and you're about to find that out.

  • This is a home game- its a must win.

    Really is our pass rush for real or is it only against ailing offensive lines?

    Russell Wilson must improve every game. Some decent offense is really needed.

    Cant bet against us at home. Lets be vicious in a squeeker. 31-28 Hawks win!!! 2 @ 3 record.
