Aros' Fearless Prediction Thread (Seahawks @ Lions)

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Just got back from Disneyland. I was surprised how many Seahawks shirts/jerseys/hats I saw people rocking. I wore my new Lynch home jersey one of the days and I had several people come up to me and excitedly say "Go Hawks!!" Pretty flippin' cool! My how times have changed.

    So on to the prediction. Well my trend didn't last long. I picked the 49ers to follow my trend and got bit. So it's back to just predicting what I think will happen.


    Aros' Fearless Prediction: Seahawks 23 - Lions 17

    Aros' Fearless Record: 3-4

    Wilson and the passing game get on track early and we take a big early lead. Lynch is used to grind out the game and goes off for almost 200yds.

  • 10am road games aren't nearly as big an albatross to this team anymore as some of our "stuck in a Holmgren-era time warp" veteran posters think it is, but this one isn't looking good.

    Detroit's run defense is quite underrated and won't feel the need to overcommit, leaving more defenders to guard Wilson's play-action. The Lions' D-line has the talent to copy Arizona's interior-pressure plan and force Wilson to prove every inch (no pun intended) of his development since then. Without Doug Baldwin.

    EDIT: Jason Jones is now doubtful for the game. Without him our own interior pressure will be sorely reduced.

    I predict a quiet game from Lynch, multiple interceptions from Wilson, and Seattle's worst defeat yet. The Flynn threads re-ignite.

    And something in me expects a down game from Richard Sherman this week. Don't know why. But I don't like him doing his trash-talking BEFORE the game.

  • I'm not overly concerned with the absense of Baldwin this week. It's not like he and Wilson connect like Brady and Welker. IF we run any slants, Tate can fill that role and hopefully catch the ball before he turns his head downfield.

    Suh and Fairly are beasts and there won't be much of a pocket after 1.5 seconds. This don't seem to matter much as Wilson has seldom been been asked to stay in the pocket anyway. There will be a barrage of quick sideline passes that I hope are forward passes and not laterals. Wilson will do a lot of rolling to his right so hopefully Rice and Edwards will find seperation to his right so he don't try throwing across his body too much. That is my fear in this game; Wilson chased to the right, then trying to make a play back towards the middle of the field. Detroit will certainly be anticipating this.

    I think we'll see more passing than usual on first down, likely to Lynch or Turbin, which hopefully leads to a day of 2nd and 5s. We can win with 2nd and 5s.

    Wilson reportedly has some sort of super-human work ethic. He's had a lot of time to prep for this one and I look for him to have a 17-22 sort of game with 200 yards and 2 tds. I think Lynch and Turbin will combine for 130 yds on the ground and 1 will score.

    The defense we don't even need to concern ourselves with. They will make life hell for Stafford and Johnson wion't be a factor in this game. I expect no less than 2 INTs and 4 sacks from this side of the ball and doubt Det gets more than 70 yds on the ground...230 yds total offense with 1 TD, 3 fgs.

  • I predicted losses to both New England and SF but in this case I would actually be surprised if they didn't win. I think the Seahawks match up really well against Detroit, I'm not worried about this game which is weird because I usually worry about every game.

    Like myself, you're likely experiencing the unfamilar euphoria of having a light's out defense. I couldn't be much happier with what Pete has done on this side of the ball and my gut is telling me his 1st rd pick is gonna' create some havoc this week.

  • I'm really concerned about the 10 am Eastern Time Zone. If we take an early lead, we will probably win this game. If we are behind by half time, we will probably lose. Being a Hawks fan, I've got to be hopeful.....Hawks 20-17.

    This works. I feel the same way about our offensive output for this game. I believe we'll put up 21 in the first half then just cruise with a couple time consuming drives courtesy of the Beast et.al. the last half and put up a couple field goals. Lions get a late TD in garbage time.

  • This will be a hard fought game and be MUCH tougher than a lot of people realize. The Lions were embarrassed on MNF in front of a National Audience and KNOW that their season is on the line. With the schedule that they've got coming up, Schwartz is undoubtedly going to be letting his team know that they CAN'T lose this game. The Lions are in front of their home crowd, which is a tough place to play as Ford Field is 4th in False Starts since 2005 (just 13 FS behind the CLINK).

    Still, this is a Lions team that (ON PAPER) the Hawks SHOULD beat. For those interested in a detailed breakdown of the game and my reasons for saying that ...
    http://www.seahawks.net/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=54926

    I've revised my original prediction ... but again, feel very confident in predicting a Seahawks win here ...

    That's the score I've been thinking all week. Yeah, 10am start and Megatron and road game... but we also had 4 more days to prepare than the Lions did, and I think our team is going to want to wash away the taste of the SF game. There won't be any letdown.

    On the offensive side, I think we'll still see incremental improvements from Wilson and the receivers, and the RBs will continue pounding the ball. Seattle controls the clock, keeps the Stafford-Megatron connection on the sidelines, and goes up early to take the crowd out of it a bit. That is, whatever crowd isn't focused on the World Series.

  • This seems like a game the Hawks should win, and yet...I just have this gut wrenching feeling that we will blow it. I think Detroit's offense will do just enough, and that RW3 and the passing game will settle for a couple field goals again and it all will lead to an infuriating loss.

    Any other week I'd give the Hawks a chance, but IMO the Lions are a desperate team at 2-4 with their season on the brink of being over, and you never bet against a desperate team.

  • We are just as desperate as Detroit. 0-3 in divisional games and a chance to either be 4-4 or 3-5 at the halfway mark. We MUST play a very strong game to pull this off. If Wilson does not have a big game, we're screwed.
