Aros' Fearless Prediction Thread (Patriots @ Seahawks)

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Each and every year when I begin my FPT's I begin predicting with my head, not my heart. I try to base my predictions not on the noise of my fellow collective diehard, but what I think is most likely going to happen. Then, at some point in the season, like clockwork, I try to follow a trend. Maybe I picked against the Seahawks and they won. Next time I better pick against them so they will win again!

    Completely and utterly irrational.

    Yet surprisingly, it works more often than you might think.

    The point in all of this is to simply reinforce the obvious: These prediction threads are pointless, but fun all the same. There's not a Soul alive that can predict the outcome of sporting events with 100 percent accuracy. If they could, they would make Paul Allen look homeless by comparison. Still, it doesn't make it any less fun to see if you're right! After all, you have a 50% chance of picking the right team with each prediction. You would take those odds any day at the card table in Vegas.

    This is going to be a very good test for our team at home. If we lose a game or two at home this year, certainly this could be one of them. I still like the Seahawks in this one because of that "12th Man Magic" that transforms good players into great ones. This can neutralize any opponent and we've seen it happen for years. The Patriots will give us everything we can handle. The Seahawks can win, but will they?

    In honor of following trends I say not this week. (You see what I did there.)

  • I've picked Seattle in every game to this point, so there's no reason to break the trend...

    But I'm going to. I have a bad feeling today that the Patriots are going to penny and nickel us to death. (3 and 5 yard completions)

    Patriots 27 - Seattle 17.

    3-2 on the season.

  • I am Biased, but with the 49ers on Thursday, and knowing Carroll a good coach and has prepped his team already for that game as it is 10,000X more important than a non conference game, no matter who the Opponent is..

    I see the final score as:

    Pats 30
    Hawks 9

    Pats score 21 points off of Miscues on your O. AND if my prediction is right, I say this.. it doesnt prove a damn thing but your team was looking ahead to the 49ers and got caught flat footed. 9although proves your D was damn good only 9 points for the Pats O directly.)

    Really? I can see thinking your team is that much better, but who in the world looks past the Patriots at home?

    anyway, I love our D but I don't think we can score enough points to win. And our patsy fan's point about our O giving points is a valid one.

    You have a short week, you face the 49ers on THURSDAY. Hardly enough time to draw up a good game plan for stopping their O and getting points on their D. Now you guys are very familiar with eachother, but IMO I be shocked if they had not worked on a few things for that game late this week.

    I mean a DIVISION game with only 3 days to prepare, oh and the manditore day off on Monday so only 2... see the problem... That game uber important for the Hawks to win.

  • 23-20 Hawks...

    This game will be tight but I predict our D taking one to the house late in the 4th quarter to take the lead. D then shuts down Brady and Co. for the win.

    GO Hawks!

    Seattles Red Zone defense is too tough.

  • Leroy Hill sacks Brady and tears his arm off in the process. Hill then stands up and beats Brady repeatedly with the arm as part of his sack dance. Hill is suspended and Brees wants answers.

  • Close game, and a tough test for both teams. Brady gets some yards and a TD, and our O gifts them another one, but our D gets a score and RW leads another game-winning drive. We win, 20-17.

  • It's easy to picture this another close game where the offense just can't quite capitalize on what the defense gives them and comes up just a little short. It's already happened twice this year. Besides, this is the point in a rookie quarterback's first season where we tend to see regression, where he hasn't quite kept his learning pace with the tape that's starting to build on him. We've seen it with almost every other quarterback out there. Hard to argue Wilson will be that different. And it's the first game of a very tough schedule, that, considering the opponents, is a lot tougher than it appeared at the beginning of the year.

    But we're 2-2 in those close games. They've capitalized as many times as they haven't, and they're starting to gel. We're starting to see things between the receivers and quarterback that we've been wanting - screaming/begging/pleading - to see. We're seeing some promise in the passing game. We're seeing that same stingy defense, not giving up but a handful of touchdowns on the year. And we're seeing it all at home in a big, big game.

    This time the offense squeaks it out. This time they avoid the messy turnovers, the dumb mistakes, the backbreaking penalties, and the stalled drives. This time they punch it in just enough to counter Brady's massive offensive attack, helped just enough by a very tough and opportunistic defense that gets the turnovers they kept missing the last couple of games.

  • 30-24, Seahawks win. It's Wilson's coming-out party as a passer, because we know we can't win against the Patriots sticking only to the run. The Patriots have a crap secondary, Football Outsiders has their pass defense ranked 23rd at the moment, and ours is 5th; and we've faced a fair number of elite receivers. (Fitzgerald, Jennings, Smith, Witten, etc.)

    Noticed NONE of those guys are slot WR, and AZ ONLY has Fitz the rest stink.

    Also you have not faced a QB on top of his game yet, where NE has faced Manning and Flacco.. Also dont let yardage etc fool you the Pats D kept every O in check except for Baltimore. they averaged roughly 13 points when the game still matters... and I put Wilson somewhere just ahead of Kolb and Locker but way way behind Manning and Flacco.

  • We will get to brady early and often, disrupting their rythem. They will not run on us at all.
    On the flip side, our O still sucks. However, we keep pounding them on the ground and make enough passing plays to keep their D honest. Beast mode breaks one in the fourth to seal it.

    Not sure who you're referring to here, but if it's in response to my "But we're 2-2 in those close games," comment, may I suggest some reading comprehension courses. We're also 1-0 in games that weren't close.

  • I really want them to win, I think this game is a crucial one for their season as they will go into SF 4 days later but I don't think it happens. New England's offence is ridiculous and their defence I think is slightly under rated they're playing well.

  • I am going to be keying on Kam Chancellor this week as well as our inside LB's and their ability to cover NE's TE's. Frankly, Kam has been struggling this season covering big TE's (even at home) and I am concerned that he may struggle again against Gronk and/or Hernandez.

    Can our DE's get any pressure on Brady? The only team that had any success was Arizona and that was from their double A-gap blitzing LB's. We should think about employing the same strategy if Brady slices us up on the first couple of drives.

    I just have a hard time believing our defense can keep their offense under 20 points. Remember, our offense doesn't seem to be able to score more than 20. You do the math.

    If NE gets 550 total yards of offense, I'll eat my own arse.

  • I fixed it for you. But no that's what I really believe is going to happen.

  • Seahawks - 31

    Patriots - 24

    The passing game comes together somewhat. 2 long TD's to Tate and Rice. Lynch gets his 100+yds and a TD. Miller on a short slant for another TD. I have seen this...

  • Pats 17
    Hawks 24

    The Pats no huddle never gets off the ground and our D scores a TD. My pick to click is Lynch. He'll have a monster game and slow the whole tempo down.

  • Hawks are due one special team or defensive TD, which if they get it will be enough for the win

    SEA 20 - NE 16

    Seattle's bend but don't break D hold's the patriots to 1 TD and 3 field goals in the redzone. The game ends with Brady being pressured by Clemons and throwing his 2nd pick of the game.

  • There's no way NE scores 30. They got 30 on Denver and Denver didn't play very well.

    Seattle is much better than Denver on defense. I think there's going to be alot of running- Both teams will want to prove they are for real running the ball.

    Seattle-20
    England- 17 Seattle drives late and kicks the game winning FG. BRady and BB cry like usual as a result.
