  • that will give us 9 wins. Honestly who knows if we will win another road game this year. @ miami and @ chicago. Not looking good. Then a toss up game in Toronto against the bills.

  • I'd put my money on it...

    Worst thing of all is that every other team in the league would be 12-4 or better when unbeaten at home

    We can go Undeated at home and go 1 -7 on the road be 9-7 and just kiss the playoffs goodbye
    Week 1 of the preseason vs. The Tennessee Titans, I said the Seahawks were winning the superbowl...

  • If we go undefeated at home and 1-7 on the road and make the playoffs................we will be rewarded with a road game against an elite NFC team.

    We need road wins to ensure home field when it counts. We have the best home field advantage in the NFL, we need to earn it with gritty road wins.

    Let me get this straight...

    You're arguing that all 31 other teams in the league are .500 or better teams on the road?

    This "NFL" thing is new to you, isn't it? :roll:

    Obviously, you read skater's post differently than I did.

    He basically says unlike most teams who are amazing at home, we aren't even average on the road.. and he's right. Nearly all of those teams I posted at least managed to win 4 games on the road. Only 3 teams fared worse.. and even then they still won 3 games on the road.

    This team is awful away from CLink.. and for some reason they have been that way for most of the past decade, 2005 removed.

    Figuring we probably win the next 2 games (we should after all, given the fact they are at home..) you're looking at a 6-4 team at the bye with the season in its balance the following two weeks. The difference between the Seahawks finishing at .500 or making the playoffs? It's those last 3 games on the road after the bye.

    "every other team in the league would be 12-4 or better when unbeaten at home"

    First off, we can point out that he's wrong based on the data you provided. So there's that.

    If you include 2007, you find that the Steelers and Browns joined the Seahawks as 10-6 teams that went 7-1 at home and 3-5 on the road.

    The Chiefs in 2005 and Ravens in 2003 were similar.

    I think that we've seen enough examples to know that there are some teams who feed on homefield advantage, and we are clearly one of them.

    I think it comes down to identifying what our team is. Are we a potential contender that shoots itself in the foot on the road, or are we a middle-of-the-pack team that is a monster to deal with at the Clink? And which one of those scenarios is more sure to cause psychotic meltdowns here at .NET? :mrgreen:


    (Personally, I think we're the latter. I think we're a year away from being a real contender, and that the experience gained this year will pay dividends next season. Lucky for me, I think that's the easier scenario to handle, as well... it puts expectations for this season into a realistic frame.)

  • I am absolutely expecting to lose every away game the rest of the way. Losing to the Rams and Lions gives me absolutely ZERO confidence we will beat the Dolphins, Bears or Bills.

  • I think we will lose a home game. Happens to most all the teams. Even the good ones.
