Not sure if I understand this (can we win the division?)

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • OK, let's just assume both SF and we win our last games. I can't imagine San Francisco losing to the Arizona team I saw us play, even if they sat most of their starters. I think we'll beat the Lambs, but they are getting better and present more of a challenge than the lowly Tards.

    So if we win tomorrow, that would put us at 11-5, but it would put SF at 11-4-1, plus their division record is better. So am I correct in the assumption that a wildcard is likely the best we can hope for no matter what?

  • If Seattle wins out and SF loses out, we win the division. Unlikely that SF would lose at home to AZ but not impossible. Any other scenario and Seattle is a wildcard at best.

  • The only way we can win the division is if we win out and San Fran loses out.

  • The only way we can win the division is to win our two remaining games while SF loses their two remaining games.

    I don't think that is very likely either (that SF will lose to Arizona).

  • Yep, this is where those games in Detroit and Miami just kill us. However, it's in the past, and as far as I'm concerned, tomorrow night is the true start of the Playoffs.

  • If we win more games than the other teams in our division in the allotted time frame known as the regular season, then we will indeed be division champs. We will then move into the post season, which is also known as the playoffs. In the playoffs, it is sudden death elimination. If you lose a game your season is over. If you win you advance to the next round. Eventually the representative from the American Football Conference will play the representative champion of the National Football Conference. The winner of this Super Bowl will be the champion of the National Football League.

  • We want the 5th seed or the #2 seed. not the #3 seed.... so it needs to go down in the following..
    To get the #2 seed and have a 1st round bye, Green bay and san fran must each lose one of their last 2 games. and seattle must win out.
    to Get the #3 seed seattle needs to win out and san fran lose out.
    to get the #5 seed. .seattle needs to win out.

    IF the season ended today... the 5th seed would most likely end up like this through the play offs
    Most likely the 5th seed is the easiest path for us.. all 3 road games.. if today would be Sea @ Washington, than Sea @ Atlanta than Sea @ san fran

    I think anyhow

    No, there's an electoral college that is "chosen" to make the best possible choice.
    It's payback, Russell Wilson falling way back
    In the draft, turn nothing into something, still can make that

    As much as anyone (not just the quoted poster) wants claim rebuilding woes, we only had one new starter on defense this season and we had fourth quarter leads in four of our five losses. That is a defense that didn't get the job done when it counted.

  • The tie game was deadly....

    DAMN YOU LAMBS!!!!!!!!!!

    or we can play the Lions and Dolphins game.

    Yes I was at the worst game of the Seahawks this year, it sucked, except Leon's kickoff return and 1st Quarter defense.
