TNF just called the #1 defense a bunch of pretenders

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • LOL what a freaking joke. In their contender or pretender segment, they unanimously listed us as pretenders. UHH If the 49ers had the number 1 def it would be an absolute love fest for them :49ersmall: . Why do I bother watching ESPN or NFL network?

  • It is almost amusing how Seattle in the offseason was the darling of some media outlets with their "up and coming Defense", but ever since the Green Bay game that admiration has turned to hatred for some reason. And the defense didn't even have anything to do with that last play!

  • It was the old contender/pretender game.

    They all said the same thing (except Faulk) - good defense, weak offense.

    So they said the Seahawks as a whole are pretenders, but the defense is good? I thought they said the Seahawks D was a pretender...

    I think this thread title might have been misleading...

    Faulk has always hated the Seattle Seahawks. Probably goes back to the days when Chike Okefor was twisting his pussy-ass
    ankles when they were in a pile.

    Faulk is about as "ignernt" as they get. He looks like a human turd.

  • They did not call out the defense as pretenders.

    It was a pregame segment, and the hosts each had a sign that either said contender or pretender. They did unanimously pick pretender for the Hawks, but they said it was because of either Russell being a rookie starting at qb, Or or offense in general. They said we have a good D. No one said anything specifically bad about the D.

  • I hope Bruce Irvin sacks Brady 4 times and pick sixes one of those stupid bubble screens meant for Welker. Getem Bruce. Im tired of National pundits with annoying voices that have no clue about anything. Also, the only prime worth ever mentioning in any context is Optimus.

    I know its a joke, both of em, I wish we could go back to the old format before those hacks came around, I am trying to tune into a Tennessee sports radio station so I can mute those clowns..

    ha, I think I found a way?

    if you have DVR record then pause and wait for this radio station to catch up, somehow they have like a 20 second delay, prolly an NFL rule so folks wont say buh bye to the ninnies...

    just gotta sync it up and those goons are on MUTE

  • I would give us an incomplete. Although the offense has played poorly on 3rd down and red zone, it has shown signs it can control and move the ball. I think it will keep improving every week.

  • Title is misleading. Besides that I wonder why I care what everyone else thinks about the hawks. Its not like I care whay anyone thinks of me. Speakimg of people that see me and don't know me. I m mixed. So no one knows what race I am. My hair is long, to the middle of my back. I'm average size 6'1 210 lbs, and 80% of my body is tattooed. I don't care what ANYONE thinks of me. But for some reason I care what these fools say about the hawks. My donkey fan homies tell me to let it pass, and don't understand why I trip sometimes. I'm a true fan, I have a lot invested emotionally In the hawks. I'm out of town, so I'm the only hawk fan here in Denver, that I know. I've met a few at bar etc, but that's it. I don't like when I see neg stuff in press, cuz I never hear the end. The mnf green bay CATCH was brutal.

  • People wonder how can u support a team that's never won anything? Its easy, the SEAHAWKS represent how I aproach life, they are the underdogs who have to earn everything. Nothing is given, many will hate. Its easy to root for a team that's been winning forever. What about the guys who have to overcome all the odds, all the people that said they were pretenders? There's nothing more American than being a Seahawk fan.
