    saying a MUCH improved Seahawk team cannot stop morris is daft, AP ran 200 on everyone, thats what the Vikes do, they hand the ball to AP, why wouldn't they but the Hawks d is a better D than when they first played the niners and the Vikes weeks 7 and 9, anyone should be able to see that..

    the real question isn't who the Seahawks have stopped its more of who can the Skinnies stop when they absolutely have to?

    CJ Spiller got his hunnerd yards ginst the hawks week 15 gaining 103 yards, the issue isn't how many yards a player gains its how many yards they gain when they are absolutely needed..

    case in point against the Bills Rdub rushed for 92 yards week 15 BUT the stat that really counts as the back breaker are the 3 rushing TDs by Wilson in the first half...

    GETTING YOUR YARDS WHEN IT COUNTS!!!

    that little 3 TD rushing stat is HUGE when you compare it to Seattle's red zone performance early on mid season, it also equates to the Seahawks adding more tools to the toolbox since the first half of the season..

    one could literally see this team improving week after week on both sides of the ball going form a mediocre team to a serious powerhouse to be reckoned with..

    are the Skinnies much improved?

    in the win/loss they are but I'm going to say not too much performance wise and without morris and RG they are cellar dwellers, but having a quarterback that has to run head first is dangerous as the Redskins proved with RG on the cot, sure the Skins are on a 7 game streak vs the Hawks 5 game streak but lets have a look at the opponents...

    Skins.... eagles twice, cowboys twice, browns once and then the flailing giants once, the only REAL team they played was the ravens once and if my memory serves me it was a very close game that could have went the other way?

    the Hawks on the other hand completely dismantled their powerhouse opponent in the niners on week 16, not even close..

    I'm not trying to take anything away from the Skins other than their questionable schedule and apparent weak knee'd quarterback, their offensive style is good enough to handle most teams but remember the Hawks have a coach well versed in the read-option-spread so if the skins go into the game with lack of design they could be in for a long day?

    my guess is Wilson and the Hawks will be ready to play, HARD! prepared, pumped and primed regardless of what anyone has to say, this team has come a long ways and they know what they're made of and they earned everything!

    both teams deserve the same respect

    GO HAWKS!!!

    Maybe Marshawn wasn't the team cancer? He's been a damn saint and nothing but a hard worker and team player here, while Buffalo has continued to be a damn joke. C'mon man, crap is weak.

    actually when we played them, their fans had nothing but good things to say about him, and wished he was still there to have a one two punch with spiller... but they knew he wasn't happy there, but they were glad to see him having success.. do you guys actually do research before you post...


    I did do research. It's called my best friend. He speciafically mentioned hit doing a hit and run and after that people in Buffalo didnt look on him to kindly. Thats what he told me. I dont care cause Im not a Bills fan. If he's been better in Seattle, thats great.

    Take it up with Bills fans, man. Im just telling you what my friend told me. I think it's relevant being that he is a Bills fan and Lynch played for the Bills.

    I'm gonna defends rdskns4eva and call the homer card on you SundayNiteBlackout. He was guilty of misdemeanor weapons charges and such? That's pretty bad IMO, and I think Pete cleaned up his act here, not Marshawn. He was a team cancer there, and luckily PC fixed him. Then the hit and run, but I'm not gonna go there because I'm not well informed on the situation.

    I love how you like to defend our players, but sometimes we view things with the rose colored glasses. He isn't a team cancer here, but it sounds like he was quite the cancer there. I think the whole rest of the league would agree with that statement, IMO.

    Ok. So you let best friend's bias formulate the basis for your research.

    Makes sense.

    THey've both fumbled 4 times. Morris has more carries than Lynch so on average he fumbles less. But the difference is negligable, just like the yards per carry difference.

  • I just feel it is unwarranted hate from Bills fans on Lynch. I can tell you one thing, I was all to happy to take Lynch for a 4th round pick. So happy in fact that it felt like a lottery winning. Thanks for being ungrateful Bills!

    EDIT: And Hawksfan, do you think Steelers fans want Big Ben out of Shitsburgh because he has been accused of rape multiple times? If you produce you produce, and Lynch produced.

    But hey, maybe he just grew older and wiser when he got here. Who knows.

    And DUI's are still DUI's. It kills people dude. Anything that qualifies as a DUI is a big violation of the law.... toe the line or not. Someone could've died......

    I still think he's fine though, he seems to be a hard worker who's been nothing but good since he became a Hawk.

    I guess a hit and run would do that. Just kidding. But seriously, I think he knows more about the Bills than you, but again, we're talking about two different time lines here. Lynch with the Bills and Lynch with the Hawks.

    Seriously? Have you ever drank 2 beers before? If so, did you feel like you couldn't operate a motor vehicle? Quit playing devil's advocate, because in this case it seems pretty stupid.

    From what you just said there, its obvious you havne't seen much of Morris LOL. Morris runs just as hard as Lynch. Morris is 3rd in the NFL in yards after contact, right behind Lynch and Peterson.

    Like Marshawn, Alfred Morris is a load to bring down, and he always falls forward. Also Like Lynch, Morris isn't very fast, but he's got quick feet, is patient, and makes good cuts. If you were to compare Morris to any current NFL running back, it would be Marshawn Lynch.


    Watch this 3 minute highlights video of Alfred Morris. I guarantee you that you'll be impressed.




    I can't lie I was impressed. The run for a 1st at 1:43 was sick!

    Yes really. I have never in my life drank 2 alcoholic beverages and thought to myself "self, you need a taxi."

    Seriously. If you really want to play that game you might just be a 90 pound woman. Not a 220 pound running back.

  • Both are good runners, but give me the guy that has been there before. As others have said, I'd rather our D be facing a power back than a shifty one, as it plays better to our strengths on D. (And that isn't taking anything away from Morris, who has had a great year)

    That said, all this "who is better" nonsense is actually pretty funny to read. Skins fans, you like your guy, and we are more than content with our guy.

  • The Hawks lead the entire NFL in points given up. I don't care if the guy gets 250 yards, as long as we come out on top on the scoreboard. WAY too much talk on this crap.

    I'm new to the boards here. Is it usually a bunch of stats debate the first few days that slowly devolves into personal attacks against our players?
