Do you want to make the playoffs?
Sun Nov 25, 2012 4:50 pm
  • I know i know dumb question,

    but think about it.

    this team can't beat miami on the road which basically like saying we can't beat anybody on the road. If we make the playoffs (which is still possible, go figure) it wil most likely be on the road and probably against green bay. Do you really want to see that play out nationally?

    Angry Aaron rodgers throwing up 538 and talking about how the real refs finally rectified that little fluke in seattle.
    you wanna see that played out and see how it feels to be the saints after they got ran on by marshawn and saw them highlights all offseason.

    you know it would be in NFL films top 10 greatest packer moments as number 9 forever right (yes packer fans take this game that personally now).

    you really want that just to say you made it to the playoffs?
    We are the 2014 Superbowl champions and it can never, ever be taken away.

    The Giants were also only 9-7 with the 25th ranked defense last year, and obviously got it together at the right time.

    Or the 2008 Cardinals, a team who got blown out multiple times in the regular season, were as close as it gets to winning it all.

    Of course, anything can happen, so I guess I'd want them in the playoffs just to see

  • You are joking right? With the bucs, saints, packers, vikings losing today we are still in the drivers seat for the 6th seed. Its ours to lose. Of course i want them to make the playoffs its a new season at that point and anyone cant being anyone any given sunday. Being 1 GB of the packers for 5th isn't bad either. We still have a great chance.

    Ugh. nothing personal, but what a defeatest mentality.

    I wanna make the playoffs so our young team can go smack Aaron Rodgers or Eli Manning around in their building and finally get over the "losing on the road hump". But, we are struggling on the road so why continue to try right? ugh. If I'm picking a team for pick-up anything, you're last pick.

  • The free agents that can actually help a team are interested in going to teams that are close enough to getting over the hump to have a chance at the Super Bowl.
    Of course we want to make the playoffs. Maybe then a Peyton Manning would have looked seriously at Seattle. Looks like we need depth at LB to compete. Leroy Hill's tank looks like it's on E. Maybe a better OL or two would help. Maybe even a better version of Jason Jones.

    Consider the alternative... what properly motivated free agent wants to go to a team with a culture of losing, a team on the downturn? Yeah, some players just want to get paid, and will go to whoever will sign the check. We don't want those players. We want players that can choose from several suitors and choose the Seahawks because they feel the 'Hawks are close and maybe they can help get the team over the hump.

    Playoffs or bust, baby! Whatever happens in the playoffs happens. Either we're a good enough team and/or get hot at the right time, or we lose because we're not quite good enough and/or play the wrong opponent at the wrong time.

    PC/JS have already shown they can do well in the draft in whatever position they're in. Playoffs or bust, baby!!

  • Would love to get into the playoffs. Even better would be if GB down late drives for a TD and Rodgers heaves it up on a Hail Mary play and the WR and Defender gets the ball at the same time and it is ruled an interception.

    THIS WOULD BE AWESOME!!!!!!!

  • Yes.

    If you look at who has won the Super Bowl over the last few years or so you'd see that the team that ends up winning is usually the surprise team of the pack. We've seen it in baseball too. Giants X2, Packers, the Cards made it all the way, the Saints, "Stealers in XL", etc.

    The old cliche about just making it to the dance is coming true more and more it seems. If this team can persevere through some adversity, like they were built to do, then maybe they can make a run in the playoffs. Who knows.

    So to answer your question, yes. Yes, I'd like it for the 'Hawks to make it to the playoffs even if it's by the skin of their teeth!
