I'm just gonna throw out this observation. I believe we play better as underdogs. We get cocky when a win is "expected" of them. The only exception being the San Fran game, certain areas of our team have stepped up in big games. Against GB it was the pass rush. Against NE it was the pass offense. In Chicago I'm saying our secondary will step up and get us turnovers, with or without BB and Sherman. Hopefully Leon can grab himself a record too :)

I think he's saying we play better as the underdogs, when we have a chip on our shoulder, rather than playing against teams were "expected" to beat

Las Vegas disagrees with your theory.

Week One: Underdog............lost
Week Two: Favorite.............won
Week Three: Underdog.........won
Week Four: Underdog...........lost
Week Five: Underdog...........won
Week Six: Underdog............won
Week Seven: Underdog........lost
Week Eight: Underdog..........lost
Week Nine: Favorite............won
Week Ten: Favorite.............won
Week Twelve: Underdog.......lost

So the Hawks in 2012 are 2-5 as underdogs, and 3-0 as favorites.

Sorry but I think when its late in the 4th quarter and we are either up/down 3-5 points is when it really counts.

And boy do our guys fail in that scenerio.

Every game counts in the NFL, there's only 16, every game has serious implications on playoff contention. For the Seahawks to take the next step they have to win on the road and also win the games they're supposed to.

I agree with you here Ditch, but want to temper it with, we don't get to figure which games they are supposed to win. I guess I'm trying to say this season for sure has shown a lot of people this attachments to statistics by so many, mean exactly nothing!

I didn't count the "Immaculate Touchdownception"...........and even if you do, that makes us 3-5 as underdogs, and 3-0 as favorites. Still a bad theory. But hey, it sounds awesome!

Hawks D isn't. As stated on another thread, way too many blown leads late in the 4th.

Down the stretch last season where we needed to string together a few wins against very beatable opponents in order to stay in the playoff picture, we couldn't.

It REALLY counted, and they REALLY choked.

If you ever want to really depress yourself, browse back through our history and count the number of truly "meaningful" (loose interpretation) road wins we have to our credit.

Of course, in our "glory year" of 2005 ... we went 5-3 on the road. One of those losses was the last game of the regular season against Green Bay when we already had HFA wrapped up, and after we lost our first two on the road (at Jacksonville and at Washington) we won five straight away from (then) Qwest, including that lovely 42-0 thrashing of Philly on MNF.

REMINDER - this franchise last won a road playoff game in 1983, although we have had three overtime losses in that stretch (@ Houston, @ Green Bay, @ Chicago).

Miami was a clutch game too. We just got lucky the other wc teams all lost. The Seahawks are not a clutch team. If Harbaugh was the coach, we'd be doing what the Niners are doing.
