Last year was last year. This year we have a damn awesome QB who doesn't know "give up". No score prediction but I think we win.

I think our defense shows up big in the turnover department, I think Beast gets his food in the form of yards and a TD, and i think Russell takes care of the ball.

Hawks 27
Falcons 20

I think it is Detroit part 2. Clemons and the kicker. Early game, East time zone.

I hate myself.

Falcons 24, Seattle 23.

Record to date, 13-4

Edit. I can't do this. Hawks ride Wilson to a last second win.

Hawks 28, Falcons 24.

The 10am Factor, and all that travel time the past few weeks is another giant factor in my prediction... I would feel a bit more confident if this was a 1pm Eastern game.

The Hawks with Jackson, beat Eli and Giants Last Season and they went on to win the SB.
This won't be an easy win, but a win nonetheless.
Seahawks > 34, Falcons > 27

Matt Ryan can be beat if we can get some pressure and make him uncomfortable. We saw what AZ did to him (would love Ray Horton as our D coordinator if Bradley leaves, btw). Unfortunately I don’t think we can bring that pressure without Clemons, Jason Jones, or blitz packages. I like Irvin but he’s not there yet.

Our corners will do fine vs their top receivers, but they will exploit the middle of the field and target any receiver/TE Trufant goes against. Either way, they’ll get their passing yards. We’ve given up career type numbers this season to lesser receivers.

Not worried about their RBs. KJ Wright has done a great job sniffing the screen and Wagner’s been in almost every play.

Back to back travel and 10 AM start could factor in, while Falcons are well rested. I see a game where Wilson and Lynch put up a great numbers but ultimately will not be enough to outscore them in a close contest.

Hawks 28
Falcons 30

However, if I factor in the power of Tanzania, Hawks win 31 - 24

dag nam it man. I said I was going to not respond anymore and listed my reason.

but football brother do not feel down. do not let the bad of the past take over.
does it matter what we did in the past?
Not on e stinking bit.
have you won a SB....have we won a SB. nope
Falcons have chocked over and over again. this time though we changed things this year. got nex cordinators and schemes.

look at what you have done this season football friend.
you won against teams like GB, SF, etc.
who cares who you played and where it was.....I measn could you really do anything to say, "hey we need to play these other teams away please".
- you take what comes.

you came from not being the team at the start to actually getting into the wildcards.
being a wildcard slot is not a bad thing. just means you had a team in your division who had a better record.....but you had to face the rest of the NFC un order to get it. it was much harder to get into the wildcard then it is for a 4th slot divisional team.
- anyhow, you were facing 3 other teams. once you saw you could not win your division you went on to a harder situation. and that is wildcard because you have to face not just a few teams....you have to face the rest of the NFC.

your a good person here. that is one thing to say this is going to be tough...why? playoffs are not easy. even the 7-9 worst team to ever get into the playoffs seahawks were not an easy team......Saints learned that.
anyhow I say pick your self off and think about it. if you have not read the end of my post....you should.

furthermore you have a good team. if you were the 4th slot GB....no Lie but I would be ok with them saying they could lose. but with you being a wildcard means you had to fight much harder IMO.

anyhow pick yourself up. at most say this is just going to be a hard game. go watch the tape of beating the saints and say, "dang a 7-9 team can win. then watch NE, SF, heck even the cardinals.....do stay away from your already won playoff game; redskins, because that field is beyond a hatred of words to say. I hate their filed, I honestly pray they fine redskins so bad that the redskins are sold to LA.


if you dare come back and say....well I feel this or you have that and we only have this and blah blah blah I think we lose......I'm going to pull out our hickory stick in our neck of the woods and smack you until you know what you have and where you are at.

Namaste'

I think Wilson and Lynch will ultimately put the team on their collective shoulders and the Seahawks pull this one out at the end.

Hawks win a close game. 31-24.

I just cant see Atl scoring any more than that. And this week we dont leave as many points on the field.

Irvin will be very disruptive in this game. Coming out party time.

Aros, you should continue to channel your inner Pappy Boyington (Corsair is one of my all time faves!) and relax. This team is that good!

Will be a close one but I am saying 24-20 Seahawks win.

The Seahawks win this game going away 30-13. Atlanta is going to open the game trying to run the ball and they will fail miserably. Punt. Seattle will then drive for a score. Atlanta will still try to run the ball and will fail again. Punt. Seattle drives and scores again. Atlanta gives up on the run game and Seattle's D pins their ears back and makes Matty puddle of water Ryan uncomfortable all day long and forces him into making poor decisions. Seattle runs the ball down the Falcons throat for the second half of the game and wins time of possession by lot.

GO HAWKS!!!

If Lynch puts up 100+, Atlanta will lose. I'm sure they know that and are going to be very focused on stopping him. It could really go either way, but...

The Seahawks have proven this season that they are going to fight for 4 full quarters. When we have had weaknesses previously, other parts of the team step up and elevate their play even more. Atlanta is a damn good team, but Seattle has something special happening. I watched the last 4 games of Atlanta's season last night, and I don't see that spark. Sure, they're going to be emotionally amped to win the game, but it takes more than emotion to win a football game.

I know it sounds homerish, but I'm going with the Seahawks. I think they will wear down Atlanta late in the game and take a small lead to win the game.

Seahawks 27 - Falcons 24

RG3 doesn't have his best game, huh? Shame.


You people....picking against the hawks in a playoff game so that you don't have to look bad if we lose and can say "yeah, i figured". then if we win, you can say "So happy to be wrong!! WOOOT!!!"

turrible.

What was so great about last week was the offense changed the momentum and carried us. Sure the O has come up huge much of the season, but we often punt conservatively knowing the D will hold ground. When the Skins came out and punch our D in the gut, then in the mouth, it would have been devastating if the O went 3 and out again and brought a hurt defense back on the field. It was an awesome team effort, mentally strong, confident and capable.

This is going to be a close hard fought game. I just don't believe the Falcons have been battle tested enough to win it though, and better defenses usually win when it matters most. Losing Clemons will hurt us more next week and beyond, but this week, we'll be fine.

Seahawks 24- Falcons 18

I heard a guy on the radio compare the 2012 Seahawks to the 2007 Giants. Even though the Giants lost numerous games near the end of the season, they started to get hot in late December. Both teams were/are the #5 seed and had to play all road games to make it to the Super Bowl. Ironically, the Giants won their Wild Card Game against the NFC South Bucs 24-14. They won their next game against the NFC East Cowboys 21-17. Therefore, I am predicting a score of Seahawks 21 - Falcons 17. Our D will be huge in this game. We will head to Lambeau on the 20th.

No record yet.

Somewhat surprised by the initial prediction although I respect it. Looking at this game on paper it favors the Seahawks. Seattle compares favorably at every position outside of wide receiver and that just happens to go against our strongest unit on the other side of the ball. The loss of Clemens doesn't scare me as Atlanta just doesn't run like they used to. I also think KJ, BW etc. do a good job against slow bruising backs. Seahawks control the clock, Wilson is efficient and the defense continues to keep teams under 20 pts like they've done all year.

Seattle 27-14.

Feel better about this one than I did last week for what its worth.

Due to the Dirty Birds need to adjust to the Hawks speed on D and a little bye week rust I think the Hawks are up 14-0 by the end of the 1st quarter. From then on it’s a race to the finish with neither team truly being able to shut down the others O.

Hawks - 35
Dirty Birds – 27

Bonus Prediction – RW has another 3 rushing TD game.

The Falcons averaged 26 points per game against the easiest defensive schedule in the NFL. What the hell makes anyone think they will drop the first 30 burger of the year on the Seahawks? Atlanta averaged playing against the Buffalo Bills defense...look it up on FO. THEY HAVE NO RUNNING GAME! Arizona held them to 23 points without the benefit of an offense to hold the ball. Atlanta's offense is not epic. The Patriots offense is epic, they average 35 points per game.

Was this from the 49ers game? I don't think Atlanta has the run defense to win this game. I expect Seattle to win by 10 pts or more.

Gonna' be an incredible battle, should be high scoring. I think our ability to run the rock all day will be the difference.

Hawks 27-24

I feel like a lot of Seattle fans are using early victories against Green Bay and New England as to why you will be able to stop a prolific Falcons offense. Claiming to have stopped better offenses. Keep in mind, Green Bay started the Season 2-2 and New England 3-3. Much like the Seahawks, they started slow and the strung off a mass amount of wins in a row.

Turner had almost 100 less carries this season, than last. Last season we had a non existent screen game in which our OC (current head coach of the 2-14 Jacksonville Jaguars) said publicly multiple times, we did not have the personal for a screen game. As if that isn't damaging in any way. The same personal this season leads the league in screen passes. The screen game is part of the running game excuse. It serves the EXACT same purpose as the running game. Keeps the D honest and forces more into the box. We don't just use Jaquizz Rodgers in the screen game. We use Rodgers and Snelling, and even Julio, Roddy and Turner. Yes, Turner.

Our offense has played some of the best passing defenses in the league and came out way over their season averages allowed. Hence, we won those games. I don't see the season average thing being any different.

I am also very interested in the Detroit and Miami games, in which most Seattle fans are claiming you just flat out laid eggs in the 4th quarter on the defensive side of the ball. I'm pretty sure the Bears fans can say the same thing in defense of your OT win vs them this season. However, what I see in both of these games is that you blanketed their best receivers. Calvin Johnson only having 50 yards and Hartline only having 17. What happened in these games? Well their other receivers, who are talented, but far less talented than Jones or White, and Douglas/Gonzales, went off. Titus Young and Davone Bess had career days putting up 100 and 129 yards. Pettigrew and Clay also had their best games of the season putting up 78 and 84 yards.

With Clemons out, and Atlanta putting pressure on his replacement (who I know has 8 sacks) by running to his side, and lead blocking him behind the play, I don't see your D getting much pressure on Ryan. If you start to get some, he will definitely have some creative screens called to negate some of the pressure. All the weapons we have, and the fact that I know Koetter is looking at the Detroit and Miami 4th quarters, I just see Atlanta having no problem moving the ball. Even against Arizona with the 5 interceptions, we moved the ball. At least 3 of those interceptions were tipped balls, not forced.

I see it being a hard fought game with Seattle getting their rushing yards with some scattered passing yards, and Atlanta getting their passing yards with some scattered rushing yards. I see Lynch breaking a few 20 yard runs, and probably a big gainer. However, I think it comes down to Browner and Julio, as well as Julio/Roddy/Harry/Tony across the middle against Trufont. I just don't see Seattle being able to stop everything, while I see Atlanta knowing that the run game is Seattles bread and butter, and forcing Wilson to beat them with his legs and arm. I see him making a few costly mistakes in an environment which can get pretty damn loud. I'd say top 5 in football in terms of home field advantage.

There's a lot of odds stacked against both teams, and this is by no means a given game for either team.

I just see it being a great game of match ups, and a fun one to watch. It's too early for me to confidently predict a score. But I do see Atlanta winning (I am a fan though.)

I appreciate all the non hostile football talk. It's a breath of fresh air from what we normally see.

Detroit part Deuce. 28-24L

We shut down their big guns in White/Jones but get eaten alive by Douglas and Quiz on the slants and screens. Russell plays well but has one big misque throwing a pick to Samuel.

I hate myself but I'm a betting man and right now my money would be on the Falcons. Everybody is on the Seahawks jock and are way over playing ATL's quick playoffs outs in the past. They are a different team and any mistakes will cost us. If we play a flawless game we can overcome but the odds are against us.


Please be wrong, please be wrong..... FYI I last time I picked against us was vs the Jets, I was a week early on the letdown to a bad team, but I did sense the letdown. Hopefully I'm a week early again.

The 10am Factor, and all that travel time the past few weeks is another giant factor in my prediction... I would feel a bit more confident if this was a 1pm Eastern game.



In terms of the kickoff time, the Seahawks and Redskins kicked off at 1:30. last weekend, the normal start time games in Seattle. The Seahawks finished 8-0 at home, but were just 4-5 on the road this season. But only one win, Chicago, came with the 10 a.m. kickoff time. In fact, the overtime victory over the Bears was the Seahawks' lone 10 a.m. win in the last five seasons.

They beat Chicago and the Giants last year with 10 am start times. The 10 am thing isn't as much of an issue with this current team.

I just don't see our D giving up more than 3 touchdowns, given how we've held everyone save for Detroit and Miami to two TD's or less. Make Houshka's leg irrelevant by converting in the red zone.

SEA 34
ATL 20

Book it, Danno.

I've been struggling with this all week. In the end, I have a bad feeling the our team's pass rush issues will be their undoing. I keep flashing back to visions of their offense moving down the field with the game's last posession and scoring to win it in the end because Ryan sits in the pocket without pressure and picks apart the Hawks' defense. Of course I sincerely hope to be wrong.

Falcons 26
Hawks 23
