IIRC, the hawks had more false start, delay of game and off-sides penalties at home against the Packers.

Couse we got some stupid young guys playing offense. So what? The crowd isn't in it when our O is out there, and the Pack has some pretty good sack specialists. Our O is constantly improving though (as is our D). Be ready for a shocker...

So... let me get this straight. The crowd noise doesn't help the hawks win if they don't have a good team. Also doesn't help the hawks with penalties when the hawks are playing some stupid young guys. So what exactly is the HUGE advantage at home for the hawks this week?

Oh I understand the difference completely. There is nothing mild about the hyperbole of the Clink home field advantage in most hawks' fans minds as evidenced by the exchanges here. I am just honestly trying to understand where that sense of invincibility comes from. Recent home victories? Recent penalties by opposing teams? Historical home victories?

Home field usually offers an advantage to the defense, which is very good and generally not part of the penalty problem.

And the hawks defense has been pretty good since last year. Yet there are no shutouts or blowouts as evidence of the Clink advantage. No perfect record at home etc.

Fair enough. You'll just have to watch and see for yourself on Sunday then.

There is...you might call it a legend of miraculous home wins for Seattle going back to 2005. Much of it is the fact that CentryLink Field has the highest number of false starts in the league dating back to that year. A few other fun moments that help bolster the mystique:


* 2005, Week 7: After a frustrating, low-scoring game very much the antithesis of that year's offense, Seattle finally puts a touchdown on the board to tie the game 10-10 with 1:26 remaining. Immediately afterwards, Jordan Babineaux breaks on a poor pass from Drew Bledsoe and returns it to field goal range, paving the way for Josh Brown to kick a game-winning field goal and tear his helmet off in celebration. Ten-minute swing for Seattle in the final minute and a half.

* 2005, Week 11: In an effort to close out a game they rightfully shouldn't even have had the chance to, the Giants miss three game-winning field goals, two of them in overtime. Seattle's offense finally musters enough ground to get Brown back in range, and he wins another close one.

* 2005, Divisional Round: After two lost fumbles and losing offensive engine Shaun Alexander to a concussion, Matt Hasselbeck puts the team on his back (generous assist from WR Darrell Jackson) and leads his team to a 20-10 win, including a now-immortal image of Hass outsprinting Shawn Springs to the corner of the endzone on a scramble.

* 2006, Week 12: Shaun Alexander pauses his abrupt decline to rush for 201 yards against the Packers in a snow-filled Qwest Field (former name).

* 2006, Wild Card Round: As Dallas lines up to kick a fourth-quarter field-goal and attain a 23-21 lead, Tony Romo decides to hold the football for the kicker and bobbles the snap. Immersed by Seahawks, he lights out for the end zone with the ball and is tackled a yard short by (again) Jordan Babineaux. Seattle regains the ball on downs, the stadium explodes, and Shaun Alexander puts the game on ice with a 20-yard rush on the next play. (A year later, Seattle's covetous GM signs leading Dallas rusher Julius Jones and spends two years regretting it.)

* 2008, Week 16: After a brutal, injury-filled season, the Seahawks host the New York Jets during a rare snowstorm that brought Seattle to a standstill for two weeks. I had just managed to fly into town for Christmas and was watching from the stands as Seattle played a slippery, defensive game worthy of Foxborough, CB Josh Wilson effectively neutralizing Brett Favre singlehandedly during Mike Holmgren's final home game as Seattle head coach. Some Jets DT got a giant snowball smack in the face from a fan and tried to sue, if I remember correctly.

* 2010, Week 3: Battered and scarred from a horrific roster that turned out NOT to be caused by 2008's injury ridiculousness, slowly recovering, and under the watchful eye of the entire Pete Carroll-hating league, Seattle showcases the new talent they've rotated in. Earl Thomas and Red Bryant corral four Chargers turnovers, and Leon Washington breaks two return touchdowns on the way to an unlikely 27-20 victory.

* 2010, Wild-Card Round: The BeastQuake. That is all I will say.

* 2011, Week 10: Still doubted by useless idiots the nation over, Seattle unveils its new Marshawn-Lynch rushing attack for its home fans, grinding out 109 yards against that year's #2 rushing defense, Baltimore. Lynch is currently the league's leading rusher since that week.

* 2011, Week 13: Every phase of the game puts on fireworks for the home fans against Philadelphia. Brandon Browner intercepts Vince Young twice and announces himself as a hard-nosed ballhawk despite getting gifts on both picks; Tarvaris Jackson manages his finest throw of the year, a perfectly-placed back-of-the-endzone TD pass to a leaping Golden Tate; and Lynch scores two touchdowns, including this mini-Beastquake. 38-14 Seattle. (What were you saying about "no blowouts"?)

* 2012, Week 2: Fans holding their breaths expecting another rookie game from Russell Wilson and an exposing light of truth on our bad-QB-hawking defense are pleasantly shocked to watch their Seahawks dominate the inconsistent Dallas Cowboys 27-7, physically and visibly beating the team down. Golden Tate's decleating of Sean Lee keeps the Seahawks highlights flowing to the Internet's .GIF gurus in their mother's basements. (Still not sure what you meant by "no blowouts").

* 2012, Week 3: In what will forever overshadow an incredible defensive performance from Seattle (eight sacks in the first-half against a Pro Bowl QB is an accomplishment and "he's not on his game this year" doesn't diminish that, sorry), Golden Tate manages a miracle game-winning TD in the end zone and simultaneously reduces the nation's unemployment rate by prompting the refs to finally strike the stupid deal. Debate continues over whether it was really a catch, and I couldn't care less. The Green Bay cornerback should've batted the ball down.


So between all the last-minute miracles and expectations-defying statement games that have taken place in Seattle in the last six seasons, our fans definitely feel a right to claim the CLink mystique. Nobody's arguing that this won't compensate for a broken team, but that was the story of 2008-2009. It's not the story anymore.

Truly amazing post Montana. Glad you summarized it for these simple-minded Patriots BS trolling fans.

Seahawks Stadium is an amazing place to watch a football game. Anybody who disagrees, go just about anywhere else and see how it compares - I can guarantee you one thing: very few stadiums give their team the boost that CenturyLink provides - and very few places have the fan energy that we have here. It's been that way since Bill the Beer Man and continues today.

I mentioned before - I don't know who will win this game - I can guarantee that the Seahawks will be every bit as good as the over-rated Patriots. How "good" these teams are in comparison will manifest themselves in different ways on Sunday - our team is really good, folks. The Patriots are really good for other reasons... You don't get a top-ranked defense by accident and you don't get a top ranked offense by accident. A true clash will occur this weekend - It's just going to be a very fun game!

If they are a bad team, there is no noise. No cheering, no yelling, no excitement. Cause and effect. Apple falls on the head. And unrelated to penalties, which they also get on the road.

Of course, you know all that stuff and are sitting at your keyboard imagining yourself quite the contrarian provocateur right now because you are getting a few responses from .NETTERS. Hey, whatever floats your boat.

I do not think IndianFan is a Patsfan, I mean it is SOX country up here lol. I will not minimize HomeField for the Hawks, I figure it will be very simular to the Chiefs HomeField which even when they SUCK is always rocking. I personally dont think its going to effect the Pats O that much. The Pats O line and Offense in general is a veteran unit.

Now someone had addressed the Packers O in here earlier, and I just wanted point out that while the Packers O is usually potent it is VERY different from NE. The Packers rely on stretching the field and using their Outside WR, while the Pats use the Slot and TE wr as well as RB more than the outside WR. So success against ONE does not mean success against the other. 9also doesnt mean your D will not be successful.)

Game IMO hard to call, I think the Pats will score and more importantly I think Our D is going get a score maybe two. But I am a Pats fan I should expect them to win, they usually prove me right lol..

Oh and the Hawks win or lose should know after NE they do NOT face another explosive Offense ALL year. 9Cutler will be sacked like 14 times thanks to his crappy O by your Hawks!)

Everyone that has played in Seattle for the first time uses Denver or KC as their "oh well I'm sure it won't be that much different from" scenario. They usually leave with bleeding ears.

Wasn’t it the Jets Allpro LB Mo Lewis that hit Bledsoe so hard he suffered a ruptured blood vessel in his chest?

I’d just point out the Seahawks are undefeated at home so far this season, just like the Patri…Oh wait a minute…. Never mind….

lol Fidelis point well taken, and FYI historically the Razor is a death trap for teams.. Pats have an AMAZING win percentage at home... I mean AZ needed the Pats O play one of their WORSE games ever and the Pats still should have won. (A missed 42 yrd FG is just gawd awful... and a blocked PUNT inexcusable..)

I hear ya, we’re just a few plays from being 5-0 or 2-3, but in the end of the season it’s only the Ws you got in the bag that count and not how you got them or lost them. We’ve won some improbable games in CenturyLink , here’s hoping there’s no hard feelings if we can add another to the list… :twisted:

Not from me, for me its just entertainment all I want is a good game (and preferably a Pats win) but if they lost I wouldnt be crushed.. (The Pats are also like 2 Plays away LITTERALLY from being 5-0 lol)

I hear ya, we’re just a few plays from being 5-0 or 2-3, but in the end of the season it’s only the Ws you got in the bag that count and not how you got them or lost them. We’ve won some improbable games in CenturyLink , here’s hoping there’s no hard feelings if we can add another to the list… :twisted:



Not from me, for me its just entertainment all I want is a good game (and preferably a Pats win) but if they lost I wouldnt be crushed.. (The Pats are also like 2 Plays away LITTERALLY from being 5-0 lol)


So are we.


A couple of inches and a turf monster tackle of our TE to be exact...

Wasn’t it the Jets Allpro LB Mo Lewis that hit Bledsoe so hard he suffered a ruptured blood vessel in his chest?

Yes, Mo Lewis knocked Bledsoe out in game 2, 2001. Bryan Cox could have also laid a lick on Bledsoe pre 2001 because he was a NY Jet before coming to NE in 2001.

I’d just point out the Seahawks are undefeated at home so far this season, just like the Patri…Oh wait a minute…. Never mind….


Brady and Belichick have never lost to two NFC teams in the regular season. Streaks are meant to be broken.

cracks me up, pat fans think there D is not only gonna stop us in our track, they're aslo going to score some points off our offense as well. one guy said at least 2 touchdowns... our offense has given up 1 tochdown off turnovers , the one last week... that was only because the dude got a pick 6... the reason only 1 touchdowns has been scored off our 10 or whatever our turnovers is, our d has shut every one down.... i think your o will score some points, you're not going to keep brady scoreless, but it's not going to be a ton of points,... our o will score as well, i'll take 4 touchdowns or 4 field goals i don't care, as long as we score one more than the pats. as far as your d scoring points off turnovers, possible, not likely. you're going to have to beat us the old fashioned way, scoring on our D.. i wish you luck....

I would like to applaud my fellow Seahawks fans who believed in us in these posts. Those who knew miraculous things happen at Centurylink. I'd also like to say thank you to all the fans who went to the game and cheered us on. I know it had to be super loud for those last few defensive stands after we got back within a score. These are the kind of games/statements that put the pundits in there place. Well done 12th man.

Go Hawks

LOL.. It actually sounds pretty typical. I have a soft spot for the Pats, some pretty high level admiration of Brady and the Dark Lord's accomplishments. They ended up losing to Arizona, Seattle AND SF.

Brady demonstrated how to communicate through the crowd noise. He is really the only one to do it, but he still couldn't throw the ball on the secondary without getting picked. That game was all Brady. Heh.. They had Gronk, Hernandez, Welker, Woodhead, Ridley and still lost.

Now they have Gronk and Ridley.

Um, no. Sorry Zeb but this is a bit too random for me, and the headline (which is what 90% of our viewership sees) is unbelievably confusing so let it die brother.
