4-3 After 7 games...
Fri Oct 19, 2012 10:11 am
  • I'll take it. Last night was a difficult assignment for any team. It seemed we made mental errors and ran our of gas which would be expected after the short rest from Sunday's win.

    The difference between Wilson and Smith last night was a TD and couple of drops. Otherwise they were basically identical.

    Defenses, ditto.

    Now we got through the most difficult part of the schedule and have a 10 day rest; basically another BYE week. Out toughest game left is @ Chicago where we won last year, albeit with Caleb Hanie at Chicago's helm.

    There are some things not to like, but overall, this season I think we are in great position to grab a play-off spot @ 10-6. I think we have made some great strides to being in the NFL elite. More importantly than isolated stats, we have won games. Games that we wouldn't have won last year. I'd say that that is an improvement.

  • If you would have said we'd be 4-3 after the first 7 games before the season started, I'd take it in a sec.

    4 road games in the first 7 games
    All 3 divisional road games
    1 east coast game
    Dallas, GB, and NE at home

    And we're 4-3..... brutal beginning 7 games. I'll take it.

    Last 8 games are 5 home games, 3 divisional home games! This is where we close the gap.

    We'd all love 13-3 and we're all hoping for it but there's nothing wrong with tempering expectations just a tad considering the circumstances. At this point, I haven't seen anything that makes me believe this team can win consistently in the white jerseys.

    At this rate 10-6 is in the bag!!! I'm looking at the Jets or AZ@home as the potential games to snag a nice 3 game winning streak and bump that record up to 11-5/12-4.

    The 11/25 game in Miami is going to be tough as well.

    The Dolphins' run D is strong but they're susceptible to the pass so the Hawks need to work on their passing offense in the interim... which is fairly obvious, isn't it?

  • 7-1 at home and 3-5 on the road gets us a play-off spot and something to build off of. 4-4 on the road would be nice.

  • I thought if we were 4-4 after 8 weeks we would be a playoff team.

    After actually watching this team I'm even more convinced that we have the talent to make a SB run. But this offense is absolutely pathetic. I don't understand what's going on. Our RB is great, our O-Line seems acceptable and our QB makes good decisions and good throws most of the time and our WRs prior to Thu night didn't drop passes. The thought of us only scoring 6 points blows me away.

    I have faith in my Hawkas. We are gonna steamroll the last half of the schedule and it is gonna be F U N !!!!!

  • 7-3 at the Bye Week is very doable, I'd even go so far as to say there's about a 75% chance that's what we'll be...

    6-4 is probably most likely, about 90% chance (I'll take it too).... But, 5-5 or 4-6 would be major disappointments for this team, imo.

  • I'm definitely happy with 4-3. It does suck balls that all 3 losses were the worst games to lose- the team has pretty much pissed away any realistic chance for a division tiebreaker. Still, I'd be just fine with a 10-6 wildcard season, or even a 10-6 stay at home season. Either way, it's amazing progress considering where we were in January of 2010.

  • I see a 10-6 team, a win over the niners and I thought we'd be a 13-3 team.

    @Det - Loss
    Minn - Win
    NYJ - Loss
    @Mia - Win
    @Chi - Loss
    Ariz - Win
    @Buf - Win
    SF - Win
    STL - Win

    4 game win streak heading into the playoffs

    If SF loses to Chicago, @ NO, @ NE, and @ Seattle we'd be tied but they would hold the division tie breaker, so either we need them to lose @ STL or @ AZ to have a legit shot at the NFC West title with a 10-6 record, or we could just win @ detroit this week and get right back on track for an 11-5 or better season.

  • The fact that we are 4-3 through one of the hardest parts of any teams schedule this year is pretty impressive. Add to that we get the rest of the division games that matter at home and I think we should make a case for a playoff team. 10-11 wins would be my guess. If we don't win the division with 11 wins and are a wildcard team, then I feel bad for every team that has to watch us run it down their throats at home in the playoffs. We are built to make runs like the Jets over the past few years, except I'll take RW over Sanchez any day of the week.

    Yes I know you're trolling but I'll answer you anyways. Its sort of like how the 49ers did it last year. They were 8-8 in 2009 and 6-10 in 2010. I'm not expecting 13 wins myself (actually expecting 11), but there is certainly a precedent for that big of a turnaround. And the team that did it is built a lot like the Seahawks...a dominant defense and a running game (and no good WRs).

    I sure hope the coaches and players don't look at it this way, or we are going to get our ass handed to us in a lot of coming games. You have to play every game as if your are playing the best team in the game. If they let up one bit it will be nothing but losses.

    We are just not good enough and too young to have any let down no matter the opponent. There are many games both home and away that really worry me, both in and out of our division.

    that makes us twice as good as we were last year.
    so a 14 win team!
    that's 14-5 ;)

  • I believe that with such a great defense, this team should take more chances on offense...play to win. I understand thats the way Pete likes to play, but I think the Hawks have a better record at this point in the season if they trust the quarterback a little more. Also, the players aren't happy to be 4-3, and neither should we be as Seahawk fans. In the past with the talent on the team we could all be content with a mediocre season, but this year, with this roster, we should all expect great things. Moving in the right direction we have been for the past few years, but this team is special. This team can win every game they play, and I expect them to. GO HAWKS!!!

    I don't know where that 75/90% came from...? I meant to say about a 35% chance at 7-3, 60% chance of 6-4, 4% chance of 5-5, 1% chance of 4-6....

  • 7-3 is really doable, but I think the Vikings game is going to be the toughest of the remaining 3 til the bye, so because i'm a naturally negative person I'll say 6-4, which is better than I thought we'd do in the first place so I'll take it.

    STL - Win

    4 game win streak heading into the playoffs

    If SF loses to Chicago, @ NO, @ NE, and @ Seattle we'd be tied but they would hold the division tie breaker, so either we need them to lose @ STL or @ AZ to have a legit shot at the NFC West title with a 10-6 record, or we could just win @ detroit this week and get right back on track for an 11-5 or better season.


    4-4 after 8 games right on track for our 10-6 record


    Flip flop the Mia and NYJ win and loss and that's what I see happening, too.
    "We have to focus with every challenge we get. The bigger, the better. The more hyped, the better. We keep doing what we're doing. Tough matchups on the road, high-profile games - we want that, we feed off that, we should be able to develop the discipline to deal with that." Pete Carroll
