  • 4th Quarter … 4th Quarter … 4th Quarter …

    To me, it’s one of the great scenes from “Remember the Titans”. Denzel Washington – lying down next to one of his star defensive players during drills … and every time the whistle blows, he’s telling him over and over again … “4th Quarter … 4th Quarter … 4th Quarter …”

    Washington (playing Titans head coach Herman Boone) is telling his players that the 4th Quarter is gut check time. When you’re dead dog tired … and feel like you’ve already won … and want more than anything to let off the gas -- resist the urge and power through it, because it’s in the 4th Quarter (more times than not) when the game is either won … or lost.

    And that’s sooooooooo applicable to the 2012 Seattle Seahawks that it’s sickening ...

    Week 1 – 16-20 LOSS to Arizona Cardinals …

    In Week 1, the Seahawks totally dominate the Cardinals for 3 Quarters and knock QB John Skelton out of the game. Enter Kevin Kolb in the 4th Quarter … who does a Joe Montana impersonation, racking up 66 yards passing and leading the Cards to the game winning TD. The Seahawks, meanwhile, try to come back … falling short as Russell Wilson leads the team clear down to the Arizona 4 yard line … ultimately turning it over on downs from there. Game over.

    4th Quarter … 4th Quarter … 4th Quarter …

    Week 4 – 13-19 LOSS to St. Louis Rams …

    In Week 4, St. Louis racks up 81 yards of total offense in the 4th Quarter and scores a crucial FG … while the Seahawks, behind by 6 points, play lethargically in managing just 67 yards and failing to score. Needing a TD to take the lead, Russell Wilson throws an interception, as Anthony McCoy falls down on the play.

    4th Quarter … 4th Quarter … 4th Quarter …

    Week 7 – 6-13 LOSS to San Francisco 49ers …

    In Week 7, San Francisco manages 90 yards of total offense in the 4th Quarter and scores a crucial FG … while the Seahawks eek out just 21 yards of total offense. In the last drive, the offensive line allows Wilson to be sacked, Russell Okung is flagged for a false start, and Paul McQuistan commits a chop block.

    4th Quarter … 4th Quarter … 4th Quarter …

    Week 8 – 24-28 LOSS to Detroit Lions …

    In Week 8, the Seahawks enter the 4th Quarter leading the Lions 17-14. They allow the Lions to rack up 96 yards of total offense and 2 TD. The defense can’t get the Lions offense off the field, as Stafford and the offense converts on 3rd down 6 times in the 4th Quarter.

    4th Quarter … 4th Quarter … 4th Quarter …

    Week 11 – 21-24 LOSS to Miami Dolphins …

    Once again in Week 11, the Seahawks enter the 4th Quarter leading the Dolphins 14-7. The Hawks defense allows Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins to rack up an incredible 228 yards of total offense … to convert on 3rd down 3 times … and to score 17 points to lose a game that Seattle had in the bag.

    4th Quarter … 4th Quarter … 4th Quarter!!!! …

    Whether it’s Pete Carroll, Gus Bradley, Tom Cable, or Seahawk fans at large … that should be the overwhelming cry for this team. Absolutely, positively, these guys have got to consistently put together 4 solid quarters of football because in every single one of these losses, that’s been the common theme.

  • That is a sign of a young team. Tightening up under pressure and thinking rather than reacting. Not saying that is the sole reason, just pointing that out

  • To be fair, besides the Cowboys win and the Jets win, every game this year for the Seahawks have come down to the 4th quarter.

    vs. GB: Seahawks up 7-6 entering the 4th, get the win 14-12
    at Carolina: Seahawks up 13-10 entering the 4th, get the win 16-12
    vs NE: Seahawks down 20-10 entering the 4th, get the win 24-23
    vs Minn: Seahawks up 27-20 entering the 4th, get the win 30-20

    I'd say in games decided in the 4th quarter, the Seahawks are 4-5, not too shabby for a team starting an undersized 3rd round rookie at QB. We're really only a few plays away from a 10-1 record overall (really only the 49er game was a dire situation that—even though we had the ball at the end—we would have still needed a small miracle to win, seeing as how off our WRs were *5 drops* and how tough the 9ers D has been)
