Statement game on our way to being elite.

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • We have made already made 1 major statement this year by beating the Pats and Packers at home.

    Those statements were that this defense, at home, can contain any team in the league and it is for real.

    Now we need to make a second statement.

    That statement is that we are expected to handle inferior teams on the road.

    I frankly give us a pass for our two tough division losses to Arizona and St. Louis earlier this year as our offense was finding its feet. The other road losses were tough games (SF and Det) and I certainly think if we had the fortune of having Arizona and St. Louis at home early, and on the road at the end we would have won both.

    Regardless, if we are going to have any chance of making play-off noise - we have to learn how to travel well. Games against the Bills and Dolphins will at least give us a barometer of where we are at. Both teams have bad defenses and mediocre/bad offenses. If we don't look dominant in at least one of the games I would be very disappointed.

    Moreover, The Chicago game will clearly tell us how well our offense travels as, no matter how bad their offense is, scoring points on Chicago, in Chicago is huge.

    Sherman looks like a ballet master in grand jeté –
    a trash-talking, dreadlocked Baryshnikov suspended
    impossibly above the turf – pro football's paean to
    wanton human destruction slips into the sublime.

  • I personally think we should win our 3 remaining road games. We are better than Miami, Chicago and Buffalo.

  • Yep. The Chicago game might be the toughest of the three. But I still think they come out with the win.

  • We match up very well with the Bears. Especially on defense. Sherman can handle Marshall, we're stout against the run.. and our pass rush should actually appear on the road for once with their awful OL.

    The x-factor is Cutler. He can either throw for 350 and 3 .. or 70 and 3 picks. There's not much in between with him.

    I, for one, am a lot less scared of the Bears than I was 3 days ago. When you look at their wins it's clear they've feasted on inferiors teams like Carolina, Tennessee, Jacksonville and St. Louis.

  • If Cutler comes back, they are a completely different team, that is far from an easy game.

  • We're gonna be a 5-7 pt dog in Chicago. 1 at a time boys. Lets work on winning road games vs. bad teams before we get too cocky.

  • With Jason Campbell throwing the ball in Chi-Town.. We can beat the Bears at Soldier Field. We beat them with Pete Carroll coaching on their turf before. We can do it again, especially with a promising young QB and a much better defense. Sherman and Thomas are going to pick Campbell apart.

    I have no doubt that the Bears and Cutler are doing whatever they can to make sure that he's ready to go by our game. No way do they want a repeat of last season's meltdown.

  • I am of the one game at a time philosophy myself. Got to get up for even the weakest opponent. I still say this is a ten win team. And bet the Bears will be watching our next game very closely.
