Aros' Fearless Playoff Prediction Thread (Hawks @ Redskins)

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Oh, and one last thing. Any Redskin fan that feels the need to say "Boy, are you guys confident." Just save it.

    Take a look in the mirror. Not to mention every single NFL fan base when their team is in the playoffs. Fans are crazy invested in their teams. Their team reaching the playoffs does nothing but embolden such passion.

    Do I really need to remind you just how confident you guys were with TODD COLLINS coming to Seattle a few years back? Seriously, now. Just save it. All fans get pumped about their team this time of the year. To act above such behavior is beyond obnoxious.

    If we can do it in Seattle we can do it here.



    You keep hammering this point like it means something this year?

    The only part of that argument was the success of our offense versus your secondary. I concede Russell Wilson and your offense will be a much greater challenge this year. However, I don't find any reason to believe your defense will hold us under 20 points on our home turf, not the way we are playing now. Not with our offense vastly improved, and not after a less talented QB, RB, and WR corps put up 450 yards on you guys at your house just last season. I've heard your LB play is better this year, fine...but is that enough to offset our offense - where we've focused fastly over the past offseason with RGIII and putting balanced weaponry around him?

    However, these predictions of 21 point blowouts on the road in a road playoff game make me laugh. We aren't the Buffalo Bills.[/quote]
    No you aren't. Seattle beat the Bills by 33. Beating you by 21 is respect.

    You, sir, have hit on the insecurity smoldering in the back of my gut. I fear we will do everything right to win this game, and still lose it. The blowout wins and the show in Buffalo have not blocked out the memories of Detroit and Miami. That said, I would love to see Wilson light up that weak Washington secondary.

    Disagree with you peaches. People said we had no shot against the Saints two years ago, too. Pride comes before the fall.

    With that said, I think we win...but I'm not banking on a chip shot.

    That Saints was coming in practically crippled. The Seahawks are relatively healthy, though I get your point.

    That's the score I've been thinking.

    I see WAS getting 2 TDs and up to 3 FG opportunities. If they make just 1 FG, we ice the game with a Marshawn TD and 1:39 on the clock. D plays prevent; final play is a Stanford-style pitch-fest, ball carrier tackled at the 43 with time expired. Seahawks win 27-17.

    If WAS makes all 3 FGs, Seahawks win 27-23, on a come-from-behind game-winning drive and TD pass by Russell with less than :20 on the clock. D plays prevent, tackles receiver in bounds, clock dwindles and runs out before timeout-less WAS can spike it. Game over.

    Why not get specific about it? ;)

  • I'll play...

    I do hope if we win the toss we take the ball and start off on offense. First time I've ever wanted that, but I believe we can drive the field and put some points on the opening drive. I feel Skins will be quite aggressive in 1Q, but I think we can handle that. Once they settle in and try and run the ball, that's when it goes downhill for WAS... their WRs will get beat up trying to block our corners and then they will become less effective in the passing game. The slot WRs will be saved though, and they will have some success, but the SEAfense won't break and allow many TDs.

    At half, Hawks up 16-10.

    DangeRuss will continue to be clutch and convert when needed. Hawks will slowly pull away, and then go into cruise while WAS makes a subtle 4Q comeback but only on the scoreboard (not in the momentum).

  • This will be a romp. The D will be smothering even on turf. RW will pick that secondary apart. Skins had a much easier schedule and did play well down the back stretch, but the Seattle Seahawks are simply too much for them to handle on this Sunday.

    The legion is back the team is healthy and ready to go off!

    Yes the Redskins have been hot lately, but their 7 game win streak was against teams with sub par records all except for the Ravens, but we know how they've played as of late (lol).
    The most descent defense that you played was Philly being the 15th ranked defense. The NFC East was so weak and watered down this year.

    The only reason I think that it will even be that close is because they will be playing at home!

    Are there any Hawk fans down here in Atlanta with me?
