After that, I really hope we thunderstomp the Titans, and I've never had a problem with the Titans. I like Locker, and Hass is one of my all time favorite Hawks. And now I hope we don't stop until blood flows on the field. Until Titans fans mourn for a month after what the Hawks did to their team.
I have never said I expect Seattle to go easy on us. I never want to see that in the NFL: You play to the best of your ability. However, if Pete decides to use this game to "prove a point", that's where I draw the line. First of all, Tennessee is in a slump and Seattle is a far superior team, so it's not proving any point if Seattle blows us out. Seattle may think they are proving a point by beating up on a down team, but they're really not. It's supposed to happen. That's the ignorance that annoys me. You guys also need to stop bringing up the "our team is pissed, they'll play better" excuse. Titans are pissed too.
We won up in Seattle in the 2009 season, but I don't expect us to win this one. Greene will be out, so our running game is too one dimensional. Fitztragic is pathetic, and we're a better team with Kenny Britt on the sidelines. Our D is playing very well though, so I'd expect a fairly low scoring game, and then Seattle might pull away at the end. Or it could be a complete blowout. That's what happens to Tennessee of late.
"Proving a point" as in how? All Caroll is interested is in a win, period. If Seahawks get a big lead, you're most likely going see the team run out the clock. If the team starts putting in depth players and you still can't stop them from scoring... that's on the Titans being pathetic.
You don't have to worry about Carroll "proving a point"... its the Seahawks players returning home after a tough road trip coming off their first lost of the season. They're the ones on the field, they're the ones who are going to prove a point. Carroll isn't in his lab with Zeus scheming a smackdown on the Titans but the players will bring whatever they want to bring, and leave whatever they want to leave out on the field, if the Seahawks reprise ends up in Seahawks blowout....
You only have the Titans to blame for not matching the intensity , the Colts to blame for winning, the NFL to blame for giving the Seahawks two tough back to back road trips vs the AFC South... don't put it on Carroll, he ultimately just wants a win, i doubt he cares how his team does it even if blowout is the best option. But the players care, most of them are hungry to be at the top of their games, and they will bring it.
Hopefully, your Titans will bring it back or there is no hope for them if the Seahawks are executing well.
