  • I love FINALLY having the Seahawks be the most hated team. The most hated teams are usually really good.

  • I have no problem with the fake punt. It's not like it was 50-0. The Bills had 17 points and looked completely capable of slapping down another 17 with the soft zones we were running. I LOVE having a coach who goes for the throat. I hated when Holmgren would be up 17 points and take the foot off the gas and play conservative, not to lose garbage. Several times it bit us in the ass.

    Yes, it was unlikely the Bills would catch up but screw anybody who has a problem with it. We've been the NFL's punching bag for most of our history. It's nice to be hated for commencing ass beatings for once.

  • The Bills were running it up just as much as we were, they just suck at it despite putting all their effort into it. We were just messing around by halftime.

  • I do believe the fake punt was just as much about next week's game as it was this one. Just one more thing Harbaugh's going to have to think about and gameplan for.

  • When John Lynch started sniveling about the fake punt, I was hopeing that someone would have suggested that the Seahawks should have just kneeled down from that point on just to cut the stupidity statements off at the knees coming out of his mouth.
    I doubt the 9rs will expect the Seahawks to lay down and give them the game.
    Neither the Cards nor the Bills need to be treated like victums of unfair play, I'm pretty sure that the Bills were happy with those two sacks, and hurried throws from RW because of their Defense.

  • I'm just glad that I stuck up for Belichick and the Pats a few years ago when they ran it up. I've long been on the record about how ridiculous the complaints about this are above the high school level.

  • The talk isn't going to be about hanging 50 on the Bills

    It's going to be about going for a fake punt up 30pts

    There is a difference

  • Just to let everybody know if the roles were reversed I wouldn't bitch about how the opposing team is running up the score. I'd be more concerned about what my team has to do to get better. Nevermind a stupid fake putt. That is not the issue.

  • The only complaint I have about the score is the differential should have been 11 more.

    1) Leon's Td called back

    2) Missed extra point
    (those two scores would have put us at 58, again)

    3) Pete's silly-ass play calling to end the first half that allowed Buffalo to score a FG.

    So to anyone that complains about our margin of victory...hey, should've been worse. ;)

  • I told my buddy that the play fake was all about taking time off the clock. Nothing more.... They got several more minutes off the clock after that and it's just a statement that we are in a position to do that. I don't think anyone expected it to go for a big gainer - that was just a bonus. :)
