This is unbelievable....
Thu Dec 27, 2012 3:49 pm
  • So I'm watching around the league live on NFL Network and they have a short segment about who will go further in the playoffs Seattle or San Francisco.... The one dude says "not to be on the fence, but I think the team who is playing at home will go further" and I'm like ok, typical analyst cop out.

    The second guy, Charlie something or other says "I think Seattle is playing better, I think Wilson is playing better than Kapernick, and Seattle is healthier." Then he says "San Francisco has the advantage and will go further" HOW DOES SH*T LIKE THIS CONTINUE TO HAPPEN......It only took 4 days for the world to forget that we throttled the whiners..... What do we have to do? WILL A SUPERBOWL RING CHANGE THE PERSPECTIVE?

  • Who cares? They're making educated guesses, not stating facts, and on the other hand, you're mad because their guesses don't match yours.

    They're acknowledging the Seahawks are playing well, so it's not a lack of respect. It's just a silly thing to get worked up about. If you won't be pleased until media pundits are doing nothing but heaping praise on the Seahawks, calling them the unquestioned Superbowl champs, and projecting them to go undefeated for the next five seasons, you're going to get your blood pressure up more often than doctors recommend.

    I would be willing to wager just about anything that the "experts" that think Seattle can't win on the road have not watched more than one entire road Seahawk game. I'm sure they have looked at the final score and the stats and maybe a highlight reel, but that is it. I look forward to Seattle playoff games. The way Seattle is playing NOW, they can win anywhere, anytime.

    Agreed. It will be a daunting task, but doable. Not until we win the big one will try be any changing of minds. Even then they will say it was a fluke. So we will have to win 2 in a row I guess.

    Yes



    Just exactly what is it you think we have accomplished so far? We've made the playoffs and that's it, so have a bunch of other teams.

    Get a grip. If we someday have a couple of years history of being a good team I'd wager you'll hear about it. Until then?????

    I live in Minnesota. North Dakota prior to that. Embrace the overlooked and under-appreciated identity of this team. It's all I had for decades. And It won't last much longer.

  • We have the tough road, we have a history of having a hard time winning on the road, all challanges that this team takes pride in making the crow population diminish with.

    I will sit back and watch us play the Rams and then providing business is taken care of watch the Cards score closely. After that it's a crap shoot and we will just have to man up and take it as it comes.

  • I agree with some of the posters on here. DON"T GET UPSET over the lack of coverage. The sweetest thing I've known being a Seattle fan was getting to the Super Bowl in 2005. Why? Because the media had nothing to do for 2 weeks except talk about the Hawks/ Steelers.

    I can't wait for this week to be over so we can get geared up for playoff week. I EXPECT us to make it to the divisional round. A Wildcard loss would be very disappointing to me. I'm hoping to be in the NFC championship game where anything can happen.

    This is the most exciting time of the year and with Russell Wilson I have supreme faith that we'll be well positioned in all of our remaining games.

  • When we started our playoff run under Holmgren, we got a few compliments, but most "experts" called us one-and-done. They were right until they weren't.

    After 2005, though, I remember Seattle getting the benefit of a doubt for the next couple years, at least from everyone who wasn't fixating on how bad the NFC West always was. There was the expectation that Seattle would contend.

    So I think another Super Bowl appearance will get us some more respect. A Super Bowl ring would definitely do it. A series of Super Bowl rings? We might just become the next Dallas Cowboys.

    I agree with NorCal. If we had home field advantage the pundits would probably take us more serious.

  • I remember fondly, the year the Mariners won 118 games, "refuse to lose" was their motto and focus. I think maybe the Seahawks have a similar game by game focus with "cool-hand" Russ Wilson at the helm. The team has shown supreme confidence since they killed the Bears twice in the same game on back to back possessions. RW's leadership by example and work habits are very much effecting ALL of the other players, just one more excellent reason that the Seahawks franchise QB is their best draft choice EVER.

    All I care about is how my team plays, not how they are perceived.

  • I think it's pretty amusing, myself. We lost to Miami, reinforcing the can't-win-on-the-road stereotype. We surprised in Chicago -- got media praise for that, but it was a fluke, and Chicago's defense is old and tired. We put a historical beat-down on the tweetybirds, but that was just against a bad team. We added another historical beat-down on the buffs, but that was also against a bad team -- and it really didn't count as a road game because it was on a neutral field. Anybody could beat two bad teams (2x50 happens all the time), but let's see if they can do it against a good team. We beat the digits, but anybody could win with that home-crowd environment, and besides, their best guy was out. (Still not clear if we're supposed to consider the digits another bad team, or an unlucky good team.) If we beat the Rams this weekend, of course it won't be any big deal because we're supposed to beat the Rams, and we have that home crowd, and we're not on the road.


    So we've got to wait and see if the Seahawks can beat a good team on the road in the playoffs before we can decide if they deserve high rankings.

  • I saw the segment too - they teased it for 40 minutes on NFL Network. To get that brilliant analysis was laughable.

    Here's the fact - if SF wins against AZ, they will have at least one home game. If GB somehow loses, they could get two and host the NFCCG if ATL loses (I think is a distinct possibility). That stupid tie is coming back to haunt us - as well as losing 3 road games in the division. When you're at home, you are much more likely to win - but without Smith and Manningham and a really shaky Kaepernick, I think SF is very beatable - not only next week against AZ, but even if they survive that they could lose against whoever they play (likely Minnesota).

    We on the other hand need a lot of help on the road - but I like the ice water in DangeRuss' veins. Him, Lynch and the rest of our defense will keep us in any game. There is not one team in the NFC that I don't think we couldn't beat based on pure talent and coaching right now. Seriously - and that isn't some homer statement. Atlanta could present the biggest challenge, possibly Green Bay in Wisconsin would be a tough win - but with RW as the leader on offense, I am confident they would have a serious shot at any of them.

    Charlie something is more than likely Charlie Casserly. He is an idiot who think's he is gods gift to football. He also stated today that Chip Kelly would not translate to the NFL and would be a bad head coach . That if he were a GM he wouldn't hire him, and there are a ton of candidates he would take way before him.
