Too Forgiving
Tue Jan 15, 2013 2:06 pm
  • G Day All,Im a new forum submitter,Canadian fan of the Seahawks.
    I am right peeved as should the upper mgt,owners etc of the Seahawks. Two consecutive playoff games and they are blown out first half?
    Defence was pathetic,no pass rush,defensive backs against the pass?
    Carroll and coaching staff calls? What were they thinking? Yes they lost but I blame coaching for that loss,they didnt even look well prepared. Sure big comebacks in both games second halfs but you know its 60 min football.
    As I said owners should not take this lightly,up on the carpet and if I didnt like their answers or excuses I wouldnt wait till next year.

  • Naw...we're anything but overly forgiving.....just better educated and knowledgable on our team than you apparently. But weather the storm that might head your way from your post and we'll bring you up to speed in time :)

    Most likely you'll end up being a first post casualty though.....good luck

    I'll give you credit for blaming Paul Allen for the Hawks loss, that's definitely a new one on here.

    Hold on there's a HUGE difference between the 2 playoff games. The 2010 squad was completely overmatched by the Bears. The rally late in the game had ZERO bearing on the outcome. It just made it look more respectable, but that was a thorough beating Seattle took that day. Seattle ended up losing by 11.

    Fast forward to Saturday. SEattle sure was down 20-0 at the half but they had moved the ball the entire half save the first drive. Seattle just wasn't capitalizing on their opportunities. Then in the 2nd half the offense was unstoppable. The very fact that SEattle took the lead tells me that the difference between those 2 games is gigantic.

    May God go with you. (Spanish Translation)

    Hey Booters,youre a niner fan arent you? Posing as a 12er. I guess we couldve just gone 8-8 and there wouldnt be any discussion of losing playoff games. WTF was Pete thinking? He should be called up on the carpet......and then given a hand job by Paul Allen for kicking so much ass.

    He was talking about the Redskins game and the Falcons game. How we started out sluggish in both and got into holes early. He has a point in that we weren't fully prepared, if we were we wouldn't be down 2 scores at the beginning of both games.

  • Carroll doesn't play D. He didn't give up 31 flippen points. He wasn't on the field when they gave up 2 plays to get into FG range at the end. Bradley and his D is WAY more to blame for this loss.
    So he went for it on 4th and 1, so what? We were getting our butts handed to us at that point of the game, you gotta' get 7's vs the Falcons, not 3's.

  • This was an extremely well coached game. The second youngest team led by a rookie QB almost knocked off the number 1 seed on the road after back to back east coast trips.

    I would lean more this way than any other. Pump the emotional brakes and think for a second.....


    When you travel cross country, how often do you feel "right" the day after travel? Sometimes it takes two days to get right after flying cross country and that is just for a vacation or possibly a business trip.

    Also, look at the playoff results, go back to the 80's, what is the record in close games? I'll bet (haven't yet looked it up, so I may be talking out of my a**) the home team wins more close games than the visitors.

    Yes, it is a complete defensive breakdown in the last :30 seconds, but history and odds were against the 'Hawks on Sunday. That's why its called "Home field advantage"

  • I disagree with you, booters.

    I'd have to go with travel as the main reason for our lethargic starts. Play calling on D could have been much better too...not just the first half of both games, but the entire preseason. As far as the Atlanta game goes, don't dismiss how important Clemons was to this team on D. His pass rushing and run-stopping abilities were sorely missed.

    As long as we stay healthy and keep the core group in tact, we should be just fine. Why would you want Paul Allen to get up in Pete and the other coaches grill about how this season went, when you look at the big picture as a whole, we're looking amazing!! <- this was my non-shack response.

  • Our HC is the reason we made it to the playoffs dang near in the midst of a total team rebuild. He is 2-2 in playoffs as our coach.
    He has built an outstanding O and D and ST's in this 3 year time period. We are extremely young as a team and will be younger yet next year.
    I have been a Seahawk fan since 1978. I have seen way too many years without getting into the playoffs, with stupid FO decisions, with a too old roster, and too much spent on FA's whose best years were behind them.
    This HC is a breath of fresh air.
    He makes mistakes because, after all, he is human.
    Unlike you, I am very willing to accept those mistakes in lieu of an EXTREMELY COMPETITIVE TEAM that is already looking forward to training camp.

  • Mad get a case of 24s hopefully stubbies, and pull off that tight fitting toque, and relax. We lost and things could have been different but, it was a damn successful season and the future is still bright up there in the northern lights area.

  • Yeah after two days now to reflect and tell everyone in the Mid West who will listen to me how I feel I'm starting to feel much better about it too. The TO to ice the kicker was dumb and never works but other than that they did really well esp when you consider, "Second youngest team, rookie QB who didn't get all the snaps in training camp, Carpenter out on OL with JR the Defensive line guy playing offensive guard, Clemons out, Jones out, Lynch injured foot, back to back East coast games in the playoffs, crappy 1pm start time which is 10am Pacific, DC and OC interview for HC jobs on the Saturday before the game, blown chances that cost us points in the first half."

    Anyway all that said they still went on the road, played the number one seed in the NFC, were down by 20 in the 4th quarter and came back and took the lead with 31 stinking seconds left. Man the loss sucked, but still what a game and season. The front office and Pete built this team. If they all, including Pete, get better and learn from this. If they shore up the offensive line and defensive line in the off season and draft we will kill it next year and have home field throughout the playoffs.

    You never know but it is as likely as we have ever had. Can't wait till next year!!

    Go Hawks Win Forever!!

    Are you talking through the Steven Hawking voice box?

    We played a 10 a.m. game, traveled cross country twice in two weeks and lost our best pass rusher. I question not taking the points when we were down 13 but that is about it.
