If there was ever a game the NFL actually wanted us to win..

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • it's this game against the bills. People always b**** on here that the league is out to get us with officiating and wants us to lose. Well no one can say that this week. If we lost this game against the Bills it would make our primetime game next week much less meaningful, something the league would hate to have happen. So let's see some calls go our way for once this week, Roger!

  • Plus they're letting us wear the Grey's which is practically cheating.

    Did you know that if you go to Tanzania wearking the wolf grey, they'll worship you and give you free stuff?

  • I was thinking the same thing. The Bills market is smaller than ours and a 9-5 Seahawks vs a 9-4-1 Niners will be one of the most important games of the year playoff wise.

    Wolf Greys are great on paper but until they can show up in a game the way Tanzania does it's all just speculation and "upside". Right now Tanzania is first team all pro.

  • Completely agree with the OP. Next week's game means absolutely nothing to the league if we don't win against the Bills. They don't give a rip if we slip into the playoffs on a wild card berth or not, but to have a matchup with one game left in the season where the division essentially is on the line, it's huge.

  • It was The Tanzania's idea to do the wolf gray alternate jerseys in the first place so that is a trick question, Roland.

  • Just remember that if you buy into this way of thinking, there will soon be a game where the NFL definitely wants us to lose. Say, Green Bay at Lambeau?

  • There is a reason why the NFL schedules all the inter-divisional games that they do in the final 2 weeks.

    And they want it to pay off. I'm not saying the fix is in and neither is the OP as I read it, but hey-sports is
    about storylines.

  • Now, we'll know the OP is onto something if the Seahawks actually get some calls in their favor after the GB "debacle."

    To listen to the media, we're the only team in the last decade to get a questionable call. Hell, I'm not used to it as a Hawks fan.

  • Although I feared to voice it, I had the same thought as the OP.

    We finally have a "Jerome Bettis is from Detroit" level story brewing around the team right now. The NFL will want a big time game next Sunday Night. NBC is praying to the Mayan gods that next Sunday night is a huge football game.

    The only way that happens - we take care of business in Toronto and NE does the same in Foxboro.

    Bring on Bill "I'm really sorry I screwed up." Leavy and break out the tinfoil hats, everybody, if the yellow flags start flying our way.

  • I agree that the NFL / media would love to promote this showdown, alas, it will never take place. The world will be coming to an abrupt, violent end next Friday. Remind your freinds and family as time is running out :mrgreen:

  • You guys are missing the second piece of the puzzle.....

    NFL wants the 49ers to loose against NE

    1) Makes the game against us very important

    2) NE could tie / grab first

  • I want the officials to make all the right calls. Seattle is the better team and should be able to overcome any and all penalties if they are correct calls.

    We'd only be even if it happened in our favor in the Super Bowl.

    Which begs the question, if we lose do they reflex the game back to the original time slot :180670:

    They do owe the franchise and the fans of the Seahawks, but I for one hope that when our team gets back to the SB, we get an fair, even and well officiated game so when Seattle wins it, there will never be any question about who the better team was.
