Everyone talks about the goal being to go into the playoffs playing your best football, and the last few weeks have been just that... But it seems like it's been a little bit too good, a little bit too early. A team doesn't stay hot forever, and this team has been white hot for 3 weeks. 9 straight weeks would be an unprecedented run, and one I don't think this team can keep up this pace throughout.

Just some food for thought.

One can argue that they haven't even peaked yet. Been doing it without Browner and with an absolutely inept pass rush.

The answer is a resounding... ""Not only NO, but HELL NO!!""

This team is still peaking. The crest is 5 weeks away.

I'm not saying we're necessarily going to lose, not at all, but there's a good chance we won't be playing our best football of the year in the playoffs.

Holy shmeer, Batman!
I'm looking through my blue and lime green glasses, but I don't even see a hint of peaking, let alone too early. I see a team that is gelling and hungry, oh so hungry. Don't forget capable, oh so capable. And the Hawks don't need to win by 50 to advance to the next playoff round.

We have another 2 years before we starting getting to a peak. We have one of the youngest teams in football.

In 3 years you will look back on this thread and laugh - you know after we are the first team to score 300 points in December including 200 in 3 games and the first team to hold two straight opponents to negative yardage

If we kept an opponent to negative yardage in a game, that would be it for me on defense. "Oh ya, 85' Bears were Ok, but did the ever neggy an team? Didn't think so."

There's plenty of room for improvement, no way have we peaked yet.

I cannot for the life of me figure out the fan boner of the pass rush.. we cannot be top 10 at every single category.. best scoring defense in the NFL is the best stat to explain how well the defense is playing..

Kaepernick was pressured pretty good most of the evening, but has the mobility to evade the sacks.. watch how well Bradford gets pounded this weekend..

we are top 15 in the NFL in sacks... plenty good for me..

Little do our wives know that we peak too soon on purpose cause Sportscenter is starting in 10.

If the Hawks were playing near perfect, then yeah, I could understand this point, but honestly, they didn't even play THAT great against the 49ers and won by 30, and some of that was Harbaugh just calling a dreadful game.

There is plenty of room for improvement, including from Wilson. I've seen peaking, and they aren't peaking yet. The scores might indicate such, but they aren't.

I think you are misinterpreting my comment about the pass rush. I love the way the defense is playing and am completely satisified with it. In case you failed to read the OP, he raises the question on whether or not we have peaked. To me, peaking means that they are playing as well as they could at ALL facets of the game. So, as scary good as this defense already has been playing....there is still room for improvement believe it or not. The pass rush does have room to improve and has been very inconsistent. This defense is a consistent pass rush away from not being just elite, but one of the scariest defenses this league has seen.

So no....we have not peaked. Just playing extremely good football

:13: Russell is not yet what he'll eventually be and that is an awesome thought. :179417: He's never going to rest on his laurels. Besides, the Lambs will be a tough opponent and that will keep our guys from slacking too.

86 Hawks peaked too late. Which would you rather have?

speaking of RW not peaking. How many days after the last game of the season do you think his season starts back up? Does he take a whole week of vacation before going back to film studying and working out? This could be interesting we could have an over under - I definately say Over Under should be at 14 days before he is back at the facilities (not sure what the rules are....)

As long as I'm tickled, it's all good.


We'll know if we peaked too soon in the Rams game. If we face roll them, then we're still peaking.

I honestly don't see this as a peak, as much as a progression. We've steadily gotten better, and steadily introduced new offense. We can only get better at it, so I'm thinking that we're probably at the level we're going to be at. Scary, we have the #1 scoring defense in the NFL. We also have an offense that could be close to unstoppable.

There may be some truth in this.....maybe we should
have tried to lose a couple of games recently and save
our best football for the playoffs.

Of course that would mean we'd currently be 8-7 and out
of the playoffs..........this is quite a conundrum.
