I'm sure many of you know that Pats fans have an interesting perspective on 'ol Pete. His 'rah, 'rah, jacked and pumped style did not play well here. I was always thought Pete would be a great guy to party with. You couldn't ask for a better wingman. He'd sell you to the hottest girl in bar and afterwards she'd feel like she did the greatest thing in the world despite lowering her standards.
And it seems he's still the same guy. He packed in more words during one radio interview than Belichick will speak in one season. He talked alot about having fun. Fun it seems is the ingredient for success. I'll say this, he's in the right spot because of the youth on your roster. That should extend Pete's shelf-life longer than the four years he had in New England. He took over for Parcells the year after the team went to the Super Bowl. They had a lot of veterans on that squad and his personality just didn't gel with those guys. It'll be interesting to see as your team ages, if they start tuning him out.

So your defense is looking top notch. You guys probably have the biggest CBs in the league. The pass rush seems nasty too, especially at home. I think Aaron Rodgers' counselor was working overtime after that Packers game to help him overcome PTSD (Post Traumatic Sack Disorder).
Things are pretty good here in New England in case your wondering (except for the aforementioned rain). Leaves are turning color, gas is still under $4 a gallon, the Pats are leading the division and the Jets are a wonderful carnival of misfits.
Should be a good game. The Pats have decided to run some sort of hurry up on offense on Amphetimines. If you have any interest here's a pretty good article on what they are trying to do on that side of the ball: http://www.boston.com/sports/football/p ... story.html
Two warnings: 1. It's kinda long. You could probably finish half your Venti from Starbucks by the time you're done reading it. 2. They seem to have borrowed much of their philosophy from Chip Kelly's Oregon Ducks, so reading it might make some of you Huskies/Cougars fans throw up a little in your mouths.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Pats are better than last year but that's not saying much. They seem to be able to get better pressure on the QB when just rushing four. Secondary is still a concern but no team's perfect. I'm assuming they plan on bottling up Lynch and taking their chances with Wilson beating them.
By the way, I hear that stadium of your is pretty loud. Is it loud like, a wife yelling at her husband to take the garbage out or loud like a wife catching her husband in bed with the cleaning lady?
It's loud like a wife catching her husband in bed with her sister.
It's loud like a wife catching her husband in bed with both of their sisters...and the sisters are both 19.

I wonder if those years at USC didn't just turn Pete into a better coach. Or maybe his positive attitude just didn't play well on the "win or die" east coast. Because honestly, and maybe I'm alone on this, I can't imagine Pete's style ever wearing on the guys. This is crazy to say, but as much as I liked Holmgren and everything he did for our franchise, Pete is my all-time favorite Seahawks coach.
You like him over Chuck Knox? Poor Chuck. I know he didn't "give good interview" but that cat could coach.

All 70k...just....nothing...... it would trip the shit out of the opposing QB, no matter who he was. Then, what would be even better, is if he started calling an audible or something, and on the next play, everyone in the stands as they break the huddle, repeat the audible that the QB said. Word for word. LOL!
I want this to happen so bad... I would be eternally grateful to all 70,000 of you guys if you could pull it off.

You'd lose. What confuses some is the unusual fact that it didn't rain on a game in the first three years (IIRC) of the new stadium. It was quite weird, as the odds of it not raining on any given Sunday afternoon between Labor Day and New Years has to be astronomical. After '04-'05 or so normality returned and we started getting rain several games a year.
As a season ticket holder from 2005-008 or so, I can attest that we got quite a few games where we had rain/weather.
Not sure what the long term forecast is for Sunday yet, but nobody around here trusts any forecast more than 3-5 days out anyway. By Thursday or so, we'll have a better idea of the projected weather.
Incidentally, rain has pretty much zero effect on footing. Sure, the ball gets wet, and we do have some interesting wind affects sometimes, but it's often not that big of a deal.
My question to you 12's: Do you REALLY think you can all get loud enough that NE's offense wont hear Brady screaming ONE word, say three times, when he only has six possible words and they are all distinct? I don't think that's possible. Maybe if he has to call an audible we can stop that, but it sounds like NE has the perfect counter-attack to our crowd noise. Even in deafening noise, if all I have to do is tell the difference between "ruby" "drywall" and "pivot" i am going to be fine.
