    Buahahahahaha. So, we can now smirk when we say "Ahh-ooh", that ridiculous 49ers team-sanctioned fan chant, and we can also smirk when we say "35!"

    Not really. A Chip on their shoulder its one thing. Using a previous Beatdown as motivation? Not so much. Of course, this team hasn't lost by more than 7 in like 3 years tho, so there's that...

    I'm pretty sure that's the only reason why a big loss hasn't been used as motivation, officially; we simply don't get blown out by anybody.

    Regardless, Carroll encourages the chip-on-the-shoulder mentality. Wherever you can find a chip, use it.

  • Yep. Getting your butt handed to you in the superbowl isn't the same as a chip on the shoulder due to perceived slights. The guys on the Seahawks want to prove people's opinions incorrect. There was no debate about the Superbowl. Everyone knows it was a whipping. No ifs, no buts.

    I doubt that Carroll kept focusing on the score when they were humiliated by the Steelers in 2011. Maybe he did, but I doubt it.

  • The Seahawks used the loss to the Atlanta Falcons as motivation for them this year. I would look at that as the same thing the Broncos are using with "35". Fans tend to only see things that make them feel superior. If Pete didn't use the Falcons game as negative reinforcement, the players sure did.

    I'm not sure the Broncos are the Broncos fans are aware of this. I don't know how many times I've heard that if Namath didn't screw up the coin toss the whole outcome would have been different. Seriously, denial is some powerful medicine.

    LMAO, now they are blaming the curbstomping loss on Namath for screwing up the coin flip??? They are entering webzone crazy talk land if they believe that! LOL!

    And what's really pathetic is that it's been reported all along that the coin flip was basically irrelevant because the Hawks were going to defer if they won and the Donkeys were going to receive if they won. Thus, Denver going to get the ball first no matter what.

    Truth. Seattle was kicking off regardless of the outcome of the coin flip. When you have the #1 defense, it's a no-brainer! :th2thumbs:

    What did you expect? That the media would have actually watched Seahawk games or something more logical? Hint, nothing beyond the Mississippi River exists in ESPN's or New York's little bubble. St.Louis gets a pass because it exists on both sides of the Mississippi.

    I would expect nothing more from the national media, especially the Eastcoastbiased Sports Programming Network.

    BTW,..many years ago, on the way down to Ky, we stayed in St. Louis on one side of the river. On the way back, stayed on the west side of the river near U of ST Louis. Interesting place.

    The difference is that our Seahawks had actually taken the lead with about 30 seconds to go having recovered from a halftime 20-0 deficit. The game should have been over but Seattle let it slip away in heartbreaking fashion after completely dominating Atlanta the second half.

    None of that was true in the Superb-Owl.

    I can't say I agree with that. Seattle's O tore it up even in the first half except for the first couple of possessions in the Red Zone. Did Seattle has early RZ problems in the SB? Sure. However, Denver wasn't really able to move at all (I don't think there was a single Denver first down until well into the second qtr) and the first time they did, Peyton threw a touchdown pass......for Seattle.

    And if we'd been awarded the first down on RW's scramble down to the five like we should have, your tune might be different man. I have watched, re-watched and re-watched that play over and over and we got screwed.

    I agree that we got screwed, but you're kind of sounding like the Broncos fans that are saying if Broadway Joe hadn't "quick released" the coin toss, the Broncos probably would have won the Super Bowl. :)
