  • The Hawks D gave the game away just as bad. Should have never gone to OT. I have no sympathy.

    Of course, this one is a local writer, so what'd you expect.


    Some times you just have to laugh, I mean Bears give it away couldn't be further from the truth. But I guess he has to pander to the Bears fans.

    In reality it's, "Seahawks overcome hostile refs, and gut out an amazing win on the road!"

    Cutler threw a 50 yard prayer up, and Sherman thought he had an easy interception... but Marshall jumped in front of him for the reception. It was insane. Basically a hail mary that they converted because Marshall just wanted it more, guy was in the zone.

    Sherman should have batted it down.

    Brandon Marshall happened. Our defense just let him run wild on us today, but a win is a win and i'll take it.

    It was basically just one big throw to Marshall, then a run play for position I think.

    You'd think after the Packers game every DB in the league would know to do that by now.

    Let me translate: Defense totally gagged when Hawks had the game in hand due to shit pass rush and shit coverage on the only guy the Bears had today, Brandon Marshall. Fortunately they were bailed out by Russell Wilson and the offense after shitting the bed on the Bears last posession.

    It was actually only 24 seconds left on the clock when their drive started.

    That's pretty much it. Seattle flat out beat the Bears and the referees.

  • Sherman went for the INT and missed. Gotta remember, the guy played WR in college. Should he have batted the ball down? Of course. But that's not an instinct of his, it's to catch the ball.

    Actually only 20. The stupid returner ran the ball out of the endzone and wasted four seconds while getting stopped at the 12 yard line.

  • Why would anyone be surprised that Chicago Sports writers are focusing on the bears? That is what they are paid to do. When Seattle wins or loses we focus on what the Hawks did, not the other team. While we can expect some respect from national media, I wouldn't expect to get it from the city we just beat.

  • I love this. Reading between the lined RW was lobbying for the calls and finally got things his way which you know worked out....

    I continued to tell the coaches and they saw it too," Wilson said. "Especially in the end of the game, the read option is wide open."

    That is from the tribune article linked

    That's not surprising. The only possible result for this game was either a Chicago win, or Chicago somehow imploding and not being a real NFL team, because the Seahawks can't win on the road...






    I know this not because of biased Chicago sportswriters, but because half of .NET told me so.

  • I was really starting to get upset watching that game yesterday. By the start of the 2nd quarter Our Defense was blowing so hard I thought they were gonna pack it in and call it a day. By the start of the 4th it was Chicago who looked like we did in the 2nd. That must have been one hell of a defensive struggle for both teams. Between Lynch and Russell running all over the place Our boys just gassed out Chicago. That needs to happen EVERY WEEK! ( LET WILSON GO FREE ) that is all!

  • We both felt like the refs were going to hand Chicago the win, but our guys toughened up (for the most part) and fought for the win. I say for the most part after the catch by Marshall in the last 20 seconds.

    Strahan was gushing over Wilson, while Terry, Howie and Jimmy just sat there mute. :lol:

  • Err........isn't this the same stuff we say when our defense doesn't stop last minute drives?

    Chicago fans and writers are just like Seattle fans and writers, they think their defense is good enough to not choke away games.

  • Nothing new here. I watched the show NFL AM this morning and some talking head was discussing RW and the Hawks (which was great) but the video being shown was the pass from Cutler to Marshall and then the Bears game tying field goal. Those two plays plus the RW pass to Rice for the win was the only highlight video available for the entire game. ESPN showed the same 3 highlights.

    Meanwhile, the cowpukes game had 10 minutes of video and analysis.

  • Who cares? I'd say that the Seahawks gave away the Detroit and Miami games and I'm sure their fans would be all butt hurt about it. Fans of opposing teams will always have different perspectives on a game
