  • It's hard to argue against raw facts hawker84. We are 1-4 on the road and a blown throw by Cam Newton at the end of the game to being 0-5. What on earth makes you think this game ON THE ROAD will be a sure victory?

    Sorry, not buying what your selling until the Seahawks show me they can win on the road, and win consistently. Not hating, just observing the facts as they have played out thus far.

    It's not "doubters" - it's cold hard facts. We are 1-4 on the road -- you can't sugar coat it.

    I expect us to beat the Dolphins and agree we are the better team, but you are acting like there is 'no chance'. If you know anything about our history in 10 am East Coast game, you know it's a significant concern.

    Many in here acted the same way before the games in Arizona, St. Louis and Detroit. We know how those turned out.

    It's ok for you to be very confident, just like it's ok for others to have concerns. It doesn't have to be one or the other...

    Just chill.

    We lost to the Cardinals, Rams and Lions on the road. All three games we should have won.

    I could easily see adding the Dolphins to that list.

    We're amazing at home and just not that good on the road. Until that changes, I'm just calling it as I see it.



    AGREED.

    We see this here all the time. People are WAY too overconfident about a game coming up, then the hawks stink up the joint on the road vs someone everyone was so sure they'd beat, and then this place erupts into an angry, negative, end of the world fest for about 5 days, or until the next good win.

    Temper your enthusiasm people..... we should have a W this time around, but it's a long road trip and the hawks have dissapointed on the road plenty of times before.

  • This was a very competitive Dolphins team prior to two really bad games. One of those games was a Thursday night game on the road which I completely ignore when evaluating a team as it is not truly reflective of them as a team.

    Now you give them a bye week to figure things out again - I think they are coming out on the field ready to get back to playing the kind of football they did for a few games.

    I expect us to win and we should but it is ironic that you get annoyed with their fans for expecting to beat the Seahawks based on stats and you expect to crush the dolphins based on a feeling / how you view the teams currently

  • not asking you to buy what i'm selling, could care less ... you can go by past performances even though we're a different team now , you can go by historical stats, 10am, east coast thing, well if that's the case , why even show up?

    since i seem to be the only one in this thread who thinks there's no way we lose this game, i'll leave it to you stats guys to debate how on earth we're ever going to pull out a morning game on the road against a bottom feeder team.... do i think we can lose, sure anythings possible, do i think we will lose, if the seahawks play the way they're capable, not a effing chance, and that's all i'm sayin.....

  • 10 am east coast start, with the farthest distance between NFL cities to travel? A game we expect the hawks to win? Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me.

    As has been said on here, no road game is a gimme for this team. We all agree the Hawks have the most talent, and this is a game they SHOULD win if they play to their potential, but its a 10am road team against a team that at times has looked pretty decent. A lot could happen that would lead to a loss for the Hawks.

    Bottom line is, if they are a playoff team they will win. If not, they lose. If they lose yet another road game, I see no reason to be confident that they could win a road playoff game anyways. Gotta play well this sunday.

  • I doubt you are alone in thinking the Seahawks win this game convincingly. Shows faith in the team and pride in their work. I just think it is a little overboard to expect the Dolphins fans to share your convicitions and to not point out possible ways the Dolphins could win. I feel pretty confident the defense should keep the game in check. It is the offense that will be the difference maker going forward. The elements are there. The second half of last year was very inspiring (until the loss to the 49ers ended the magic ride).

    Maybe the team has moved to that next level? The first half of this season was very encouraging. Those road losses were the devil claiming his due when the deal was made to go with a Rookie QB. I look forward to the next 2 road games. Will help me understand what this team will be like for the rest of Pete's time here. He and the team has to take the step up if they are to become more than mediocre.

Unfortunately, I think he has a banning in his future as he's likely going to go out in a blaze of glory and a hail of F-Bombs that will go down amongst the all time greats, but until then...

  • I respect Miami and could accept a loss. For whatever reason, I feel supremely confident about the SF game later on, so this game in Miami is, at least emotionally, the second toughest game to win the rest of the regular season.

    Miami is not a bad team, but Seattle should win. I think their run defense could play to Seattle's favor. Wilson is a better QB when the team relies on him more. Seattle did eventually get a lot of rushing yards vs. the Jets, but it was already 21-7 before they got the rushing game going. I am worried about Reggie Bush, and I am cautiously worried about Tannehill, although I think Tannehill is a very good matchup from Seattle's point of view. If he doesn't have at least 2-3 batted passes in this game, I'll be disappointed.

    Miami is also one of the league's worst home teams relative to their overall record the last few years- winning more games on the road than at home since 2010. Their home stadium atmosphere is pretty much the opposite of ours.

    I never want to look past an opponent, but if Seattle loses, I think it's fair to call this one a "should win" loss.

    Seattle is a better team on the road than a 1-4 record would indicate. They have been in every loss, despite a ton of adversity (fluke interceptions, missed timeouts, drops, rookie QB's first game, Matt Stafford on fire, etc). It would be nice if they could close out better than 2-6.

    thanks, but i'm fine... i see no problem in having the upmost confidence in my team... i'm not saying we're invincable, i'm saying we're the better team top to bottom and should win if we play up to our capabilities.. didin't piss me off that dolphin fans think they can beat us, what pissed me off was that they're basing that entirely on the first half of our season, like a lot of seahawk fans are... my argument is we're a different team now, so to say we'll lose based on the first half is stupid to me.. offensively... we've eliminated a lot of the turnovers, penalities, and drops, all those things killed drives in those road losses... our defense is still strong, our offensive is much improved, we out match miami in every catagory, i don't see us losing... and damn sure don't see how dolphin fans or our fans can look at the first half and base their opinions on those performances... we're better now than we were then, and we still should have won two of those road games...

    This is undoubtedly true, "if the seahawks play the way they're capable, not a [blanking] chance" we lose. Question, of course, is whether the seahawks show up and play the way they are capable of playing. I sure hope they do, and if they do we are exceedingly likely to be taking one of the tickets to the playoffs....

  • I don't buy that we're that bad on the road. Historically, yes... but this team is exceptional.

    Our road losses are 3 division games and the Detroit Lions who decided to finally show up. The Cardinals followed the win against us by beating New England at Foxborough. The Rams loss was the worst of them all but I'll allow one bad loss.

    If the Seahawks go and put on a stinker in Miami, I'll agree with you. Until then, I'm very confident that this team's road woes are over.
    I enjoy ruining threads by making them about personal attacks and then commenting about how personal attacks make the other person's argument invalid.

  • We all want the same thing here. A Seahawks victory. It's totally cool to have the confidence you do. I hope you're right. We all do. Nothing would make all of us happier than the Seahawks illustrating they've turned the corner and absolutely dismantle the Dolphins on Sunday.

    The problem is, I am Charlie Brown and the Seahawks on the road are Lucy. Every flippin' time I get my hopes up and believe the Seahawks will beat (insert opposing team here). I rush towards Lucy holding that football down, swearing she won't take it away and cause me to flip and crash onto my back. For 36 years I've been doing the same thing and 8 out of 10 times Lucy removes that damn football.

    After awhile, it becomes near impossible to believe she won't do it again.

  • we have a -17 point differential on the road, that is hardly a "BAD" road team (albeit not a very good one either), we've been seriously unlucky - with the opportunity to win against the Cardinals, an amazing performance from Legatron and a fake FG (which shouldn't have been snapped since Pete called TO before they snapped it) and a last minute spazz-out by our D in Detroit.

    We're conceding 18.1 PPG on the road (less than all but SF, Chicago and Houston, all three of which have had the luxury of playing @ the Jets, and two of whom have also had the luxury of going to Jacksonville - oh, and all three are conceding more points at home than on the road too).

    You left out the most important "statistic".... Wins and Losses. Nothing else matters.

    We are competitive, no doubt. Time to take the next step and win games.

  • i'm going to say it like this and you can try and clown me all you want Canhawk.. i know this team, i've followed this team since the beginning, i know what our history is, i know what our recent history is... i am not predicting a win sunday, i never said that... i did say if seahawks play to their potential, they are the better team hands down and should win.

    i'm not stupid, or a desperately devoted fan who can't see or distinguish reality... i understand this is the NFL, i understand andy team can beat any team on any given sunday, i get it... this whole post was about dumbass dolphin fans looking at the 1st half of our season , and by those stats alone are predicting a easy win, cuz we all know hawks can't win on the road... to me that's an insult, and just simply not true... for fellow hawk fans who want to believe this as well, feel free, i'm not one of you... i know we have the superior team, road or not, i know if they play to their potential they will win... whether they show up and do that or not remains to be seen but i'll leave you with this..

    if they show up and screw the pooch, you can forget about playoff runs and superbowls this year, because they simply are not there yet... do i think they're good enough to win a superbowl this year? NO... do i think they're good enough to win on the road...Yes..

    i'll be at the game on Sunday expecting the best preparing for the worst.


    see it's post like this that i just can't get behind... they have no reason to fear us? a team that just lost to the bills, a team where there own fanbase wont go to the games because they're so bad? people wanna say my reasoning is irrational, because i think we'll win because we're the better team., but this kind of thinking is not... ? sorry can't agree with fans like this...

    Who says you have to agree? You seem to think we can't air our opinions on the matter though. I am with Largent80. Until they prove they are winners on the road, a loss to this team would not surprise. Sorry, wins are wins and losses are losses. We lose much more on the road than we win no matter how good or BAD the opponent is(Rams game anyone?). Those are the facts. So, I am hoping they surprise me. Nobody here "wants" a loss.

    I don't find it particularly shocking that a mediocre team lost on the road to a mediocre team in their division, nor do I find that it has a lot of bearing on this Sunday's game.

    I'm with CANHawk, we will go with your magic gut on this one.

    ... and that's what most all of us are waiting for. This team (especially the offense) needs to execute better on the road. 'bout the only guy that consistently shows up ready to play away from home is Russell Wilson. The rest do their best to sabotage all of his hard work/preparation.. They showed progress against Detroit, so hopefully that's a good sign.

  • All players and coaches know the truth. It doesn't matter who you are playing against in this league cause it can hit you on any given Sunday. The NFL has some parity and therefore even the easy seeming match ups can sneak up and get you with a few lucky breaks and explosive plays.

    I for one am in the "show me" department at this point. I don't want to be here, and I certainly hope the Seahawks can change my feelings in that regard. I feel the same about this game as I did the Rams, Cards, and Detroit games to be honest. I seriously think we are much better than we seem to play on the road and we should dismantle the Fins on paper.

    We passed the eye test last game I think, even though it was against the Jets who have had their struggles this year. The Jets are confused and seeking an identity. They did win this weekend against the Rams who took care of us at their house earlier this year. You never can tell in the NFL.

    I will be screaming at my television like a madman on Sunday and enjoy the ride.

    Who you fighting with, O mighty Kreskin? Nobody here has said that the Seahawks are not the better team. Nobody. So clearly we all know that if they play to their potential they will win.

    Do they always play to their potential on the road? Nope.

    I expect a Hawks win. I just don't think it will be easy, and a post based on the fact that some Dolphins fans think they just might win is hardly worth getting butt hurt about.

    BTW: CanHawk, with this particular genie I heard it isn't his belly you rub to get your three wishes.

  • Do we have better talent? I think so, do we show up with that talent on the road especially the far East? Rarely is the problem. We have shown more competiveness, we have not quit, we just need to close it out. History if ignored will repeat itsel, I think Pete looks at history and has tried to do some things to change the trend, still a work in progress though. We should win on paper, problem is paper gets flushed a lot.

    Rose colored glasses are fine as long as your not emotionally tied into it like many are and want to have some protection for that heart of hearts that gets broke with being to high.

    As far as Dolphin fans believeing they can win, it doesn't bother me at all, we as Seahawks fans look for a silver lining where we can and the fringes for any chance of improvement.

    They have a flashy new RB, and Brand new Rookie QB and I don't care what we think of him they probably have as many QB threads as us this year.

    So I watch the game and hope for the win and watch our guys grow, it's baby steps on some things, were improving.

  • got it , i'm butthurt and i don't know my punctuation because i don't start my sentences with capitols... still nobody's told me why we shouldn't win in convincing fashion, other than it's on the road and in the morning... tell ya what , convince me that this team can't go up there, or shouldn't go up there and win convincingly.. instead of attacking my opinion... tell me why, for me to say i have a feeling they're going to go up there and take care of business, is any different than saying, we should take care of the rams and cards at home, there's stats to back up those claims, but as it's been well stated, anything can happen on any given sunday... so why am i so irrational to think they can beat a bad dolphin team on the road.. sorry for the spelling errors and lack of capitol letters...

    i feel very confident going into miami, give me some good reasons why i shouldn't be.. last time i checked i'm allowed to have an opinion and express it..

  • You mean "capital letters". Unless you're referring to D.C., which would be Capitol letters.

    Aside from that, I love your energy and enthusiasm. I will sponsor you at our next meeting.

  • got it , i'm an alchoholic now, and you don't have an actual response to the post, so you'll jump on the post meaningless responses about capitol letters bandwagon. right on. for all you future punctuation bandwagoners, when i fill out a resume, i'll concentrate on my punctuation, until then not really important to me, lucky half the words are spelled correctly... but it has been scientifically proven , the above average human mind can still read a sentence even if all the words are mispelled.. so you guys should be fine..

    Your posts have been ultra defensive and you are going back and forth on your comments.

    We have a better team than the AZ Cardinals, the STL Rams, the Detroit Lions, and I believe we're pretty evenly matched with the Niners. We have not been able to put it all together on the road is why it's not a guaranteed win. How is anyone supposed to prove you wrong? The game hasn't been played yet. Why would anybody want to prove you wrong anyways? What's there to prove? We all want a Seahawks W.


    Oh yeah...also, my gut says this game is not going to be as easy as you make it sound.

    you're right. my comment to begin all this is i feel we'll win in convincing fashion.. so nobobdy said we wouldn't win... so i guess i'm debating those who don't agree that i should feel that way.
