This defense will destroy Ryan Tannehill

    We played pretty good 3rd down D against the Vikings and the Jets. Also, Miami were dreadful on 3rd down last night.

    Put it this way, if the Seahawks are who we think they are, they should drub Miami easily. If we don't win that game, then we aren't who we thought we were.

  • Hopefully the back to back home games and the bye week will erase all the bad vibes from the road games earlier in the season. The team can realistically look at this like a fresh start of sorts. It's the first road game of the second half of the season. The first half of the season was dotted with an inability to close teams out but we've seen that that hasn't been a problem against Minnesota and the Jets. The Seahawks pride themselves on finishing strong, now's the time to do it on the road and at 10am too! Personally, I can't wait for the challenge, I think the Hawks will drub the Dolphins and Tannehill in the process.

    With regards to Tannehill, I don't see the hype. kearly and English' assessments are spot-on. I honestly look forward to seeing Russell Wilson make him look like a chump by comparison.

  • Whoa whoa. I'm not expecting a blowout by any stretch. The Fins have a legitimate defense, and we're playing at 10am on the east coast. I'm not sure we're going to score enough points to blow them out. And say what you want about Tannehill, but he has had moments. Put on the tape of the Colts game. Kid is AWFULLY talented. Don't think it was a stretch of a pick at all.

    Yes definitely. For some reason, despite some fairly mediocre play last year, he suddenly became a first round lock. This is a guy who had one full year as a starting quarterback, playing on a good Texas A&M roster and one of the best lines in CFB. He wouldn't be able to beat Alabama like the current QB at A&M. And yet he's drafted #8 overall and starting in week one in the NFL.

    I guess it's another example of teams over rating size, speed at the QB position. He wasn't a poised, accurate passer. He flashed hot and cold, but had serious mechanical issues. For me he should've been a second round pick, benched for a year or two as you say Peaches and then brought along slowly. Plus, he has the upside of being a WR/TE option on some plays. But throwing him in like this, with a bad supporting cast, I don't get it. And he better hope Mike Sherman sticks around as offensive coordinator.

    Coming off a 37-3 trouncing at the hands of the Titans, at home and then a 19-14 loss at Buffalo where they threw the game away, it appears that the Dolphins are trending downwards at the moment. Meanwhile, the Hawks will be coming off a much needed bye week following two strong victories with a playoff push in reach.

    I believe the guys get it done, comfortably, but I can definitely see why you'd have some concern with the way the team's played on the road so far this season.

    Well, we've got to get over the hump sooner or later. If the one thing that holds us back from ever winning a Super Bowl is 10am starts, well, I don't even want to think about that...

    But it hasn't ALWAYS been the case. One of my greatest days as a Seahawks fan came last season when I got to watch the Seahawks beat the Giants at the new Meadowlands in a 10am game. If they could do it then, they can do it now.

    bleh..... sick of hearing all this 10:00am , can't win on the road crap.. hawks are finally geling, our offense is getting in sinc, recievers and backs aren't displaying the dropsies nowhere near as much as before, the stupid penalties have been dramatically reduced last 4, 5 games.. all played a huge part in our losses on the road this year.... both those teams i watched last night are very bad... there is no way we should lose to either of those teams, at ten am, on the road or not... it's on... but as stated before, if we do, then we are not where we thought we were and have some work to do in the off season....

  • 10 am road games are always s challenge for us. Young teams like Miami are volatile and can over perform

    I'm actually afraid to make any predictions on this game... we as easily the better team but an not sure we win

  • This game is going to be just about as close of a game on a neutral field without it being so. That fan base has pretty much mailed it in. Mitch Leavy on 950AM this morning pretty much said that the Miami crowd are going dressed as "orange seats."

    Agreed. If we can't beat the Bills and the Dolphins then we don't belong in the playoffs this year.

    Correction: Miami has a good run defense. Overall, they're #20 in the league, with a moderate #15 in scoring, and they're #28 in passing (by yards per game.) Wilson should have a good game against a bad secondary.

    Also, the Colts are #15 against the pass (in yards), and Seattle is #4. I have a feeling that's going to negate Tannehill's talent. Sorry man, but I think you're reaching here.

    At the risk of this thread being moved to the draft forum, I think the exact same thing is going to happen with Landry Jones.

    I'm dead serious. No excuse to lose to the Dolphins, even the Bills. If we do? There's not a person alive that will convince me otherwise that we're simply not as good as we think we are.

    If we are as good as we think we are?

    We beat both teams in their house. I'm not saying blowout. I'm not saying ANYTHING other than...We WIN THE GAME.

    The Bears game I do not expect to win. If we do, that would be pure bonus and a good sign of how good we can be.

    Losing to the Dolphins and Bills will say more to me about the state of this team than any other game played this year to-date.

    Totally agree with you, these are games we are the better team and we should win, we need to go out there and get it. There's no reason why we should lose to Miami they're playing terrible football right now.

  • Todd pretty much ticked all the boxes. If we are who we think we are, The Dolphins and Bills should be wins for us. Same as with Carolina, and we won that one. The Lions are a very talented team, and that loss kinda stung because in the end it was the D who let us down, but it was still a close game and I thought the offense played very well on the road. The other three losses were divisional games, and most of you should know by now that you can toss the form book out the window when it comes to divisional games, especially on the road.

    If we can't beat the Dolhpins and the Bills, regardless of kickoff time or location, then we're not what we thought we were.

  • not sure why everyones so certain we're going to lose to the bears... ya it's at their house, but their offense is horrible, even with cutler... they rely on some of their scoring to come off takeaways, and the d scoring.. we don't turn the ball over or at least let the D score, no reason why we couldn't win that game as well... just not seeing why the bears are that much better than us... We have a better offense, and a top 5 defense...

    Agree, but it's a tough game on the road against a seemingly decent opponent, which is what we faced with the Lions and look how that turned out. CAN we beat the Bears? Of course we can, and were this at the CLink, I wouldn't bat an eyelid. But with it being on the road, and immediately after a road game to boot, it just makes it a bit more....iffy.

  • These types of games, where on paper we should kill our opponent, scare the hell out of me. Factor in its a 10am start game and Im very nervous.

    Whatever happens, no matter if its 1 or 21 points, I just want another freaking road win. Luckily for me, I was in attendance for our only road win this year :D

  • Until the Seahawks can prove otherwise, I'm sticking to my prediction that we win out at home and lose out on the road and finish 9-7.

    I won't be surprised if we drop one at home and win one more on the road but that still keeps us at 9-7.

    The Kool-Aid won't be in my house until we take care of the Dolphins and Bills on the road like ANY Top 10 team should do.

  • This game will be a test on how disciplined this team is. Will they come out flat in a 10 AM road game after a long break? Will there be more penalties? Will Bradley continue to bring more than 4 on 3rd down? Will there be drops?

    If we lose this game, it's going to be due to shooting ourselves in the foot, not so much from anything the Dolphins will do

    I say we blitz more in this game...I don't think Tannehill has what it takes to exploit it.

    If the game was at CLink, yeah Tannehill would be in for a longggg day..

    We SHOULD win.. but then again, we SHOULD have won in Glendale, St. Louis and Detroit too.

    Totally agree. This team has to prove they can win on the road before we expect them to do it. There are numerous examples over the years of the Hawks going on the road and losing to inferior opponents in asinine ways so I'll hold my breath that this version can change the "can't win on the road" culture.

    The only good news is that road favorites off a bye week are something like 25-4 straight up over the past several years (heard the stat yesterday on Cowherd's radio show) and Seattle will likely be a 1 to 3 point favorite based on the Dolphins recent slide.

  • Many years ago, I heard a talking head say, about this very subject, "You have to win the games you're supposed to win."

    That's about how I feel, and I think I'm with the consensus around here, that this is a game the Seahawks "should" win. In some ways, this game has playoff implications. If we want to make the playoffs, we have to do everything possible to make sure that we are in the best position imaginable when we play SF in late December. If we start losing to the likes of Miami, that SF game starts to lose meaning.

    I'm normally a "one game at a time" kind of fan, and I try not to look too far ahead, but this is that time of year when, if you want to really make a playoff run, you have to take care of business. That means beating inferior teams, which Miami really is. Russell Wilson seems like just the kind of guy who can and will do that.
    Talent can get you to the playoffs.
    It takes character to win when you get there.
