Let me explain to you why Pete Carroll is a great damned coach,
Pete knows what is happening to his team, We can go over all the X's and O's but what was apparent from the physical signs of that defense was that they are starting to lose focus. All the talks about getting out-schemed, all the chippy attitude that has worked in the past being replaced by lagish running to the sidelines and miscommunication on the field. These guys are showing the early (but fixable) signs of "checking out". This is the drawbacks of having a very young team but like i said it is fixable and further still i think this week Pete fixes it. I think it's safe to say i have been one of the most negative people on this board since Sundays loss but i think we can all agree that 4-4 -- while no where near this teams shown potential-- is about where we expected to be going through that charge of the light brigade of a first half schedule. I feel this has compounded by the fact that Detroit shifted from a team we would have trouble with to a team we were supposed to beat along the course of their season. We are not in a good position to win playoff contention in our current situation.
but did you guys forget who these guys are?
I'm reminded of that scene from Kill Bill Vol II when Kiddo is sitting there finally facing off with Bill after going through utter hell to get there. Bill lets out the now classic line "You didn't think it would be that easy did you?" to which Kiddo responds something to the effect of "Yeah... I sorta did."
These are the freaking DRAMA KINGS, they be like that sometimes. I predict Pete Carroll is gonna put them on a 300 style high and have them go on a run the table charge.
12 - 4
We are the 2014 Superbowl champions and it can never, ever be taken away.
Greatest defense in NFL history.
