Aros' Fearless Prediction Thread (Angry Birds @ Dirty Birds)

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • I think Wilson and Lynch will ultimately put the team on their collective shoulders and the Seahawks pull this one out at the end.

  • Hawks win a close game. 31-24.

    I just cant see Atl scoring any more than that. And this week we dont leave as many points on the field.

    Irvin will be very disruptive in this game. Coming out party time.

  • Aros, you should continue to channel your inner Pappy Boyington (Corsair is one of my all time faves!) and relax. This team is that good!

    Will be a close one but I am saying 24-20 Seahawks win.

  • The Seahawks win this game going away 30-13. Atlanta is going to open the game trying to run the ball and they will fail miserably. Punt. Seattle will then drive for a score. Atlanta will still try to run the ball and will fail again. Punt. Seattle drives and scores again. Atlanta gives up on the run game and Seattle's D pins their ears back and makes Matty puddle of water Ryan uncomfortable all day long and forces him into making poor decisions. Seattle runs the ball down the Falcons throat for the second half of the game and wins time of possession by lot.

    GO HAWKS!!!

  • If Lynch puts up 100+, Atlanta will lose. I'm sure they know that and are going to be very focused on stopping him. It could really go either way, but...

    The Seahawks have proven this season that they are going to fight for 4 full quarters. When we have had weaknesses previously, other parts of the team step up and elevate their play even more. Atlanta is a damn good team, but Seattle has something special happening. I watched the last 4 games of Atlanta's season last night, and I don't see that spark. Sure, they're going to be emotionally amped to win the game, but it takes more than emotion to win a football game.

    I know it sounds homerish, but I'm going with the Seahawks. I think they will wear down Atlanta late in the game and take a small lead to win the game.

    RG3 doesn't have his best game, huh? Shame.


    You people....picking against the hawks in a playoff game so that you don't have to look bad if we lose and can say "yeah, i figured". then if we win, you can say "So happy to be wrong!! WOOOT!!!"

  • What was so great about last week was the offense changed the momentum and carried us. Sure the O has come up huge much of the season, but we often punt conservatively knowing the D will hold ground. When the Skins came out and punch our D in the gut, then in the mouth, it would have been devastating if the O went 3 and out again and brought a hurt defense back on the field. It was an awesome team effort, mentally strong, confident and capable.

    This is going to be a close hard fought game. I just don't believe the Falcons have been battle tested enough to win it though, and better defenses usually win when it matters most. Losing Clemons will hurt us more next week and beyond, but this week, we'll be fine.

    Seahawks 24- Falcons 18

  • I heard a guy on the radio compare the 2012 Seahawks to the 2007 Giants. Even though the Giants lost numerous games near the end of the season, they started to get hot in late December. Both teams were/are the #5 seed and had to play all road games to make it to the Super Bowl. Ironically, the Giants won their Wild Card Game against the NFC South Bucs 24-14. They won their next game against the NFC East Cowboys 21-17. Therefore, I am predicting a score of Seahawks 21 - Falcons 17. Our D will be huge in this game. We will head to Lambeau on the 20th.

    No record yet.

  • Somewhat surprised by the initial prediction although I respect it. Looking at this game on paper it favors the Seahawks. Seattle compares favorably at every position outside of wide receiver and that just happens to go against our strongest unit on the other side of the ball. The loss of Clemens doesn't scare me as Atlanta just doesn't run like they used to. I also think KJ, BW etc. do a good job against slow bruising backs. Seahawks control the clock, Wilson is efficient and the defense continues to keep teams under 20 pts like they've done all year.

    Seattle 27-14.

    Feel better about this one than I did last week for what its worth.

  • Due to the Dirty Birds need to adjust to the Hawks speed on D and a little bye week rust I think the Hawks are up 14-0 by the end of the 1st quarter. From then on it’s a race to the finish with neither team truly being able to shut down the others O.

    Hawks - 35
    Dirty Birds – 27

    Bonus Prediction – RW has another 3 rushing TD game.

  • The Falcons averaged 26 points per game against the easiest defensive schedule in the NFL. What the hell makes anyone think they will drop the first 30 burger of the year on the Seahawks? Atlanta averaged playing against the Buffalo Bills defense...look it up on FO. THEY HAVE NO RUNNING GAME! Arizona held them to 23 points without the benefit of an offense to hold the ball. Atlanta's offense is not epic. The Patriots offense is epic, they average 35 points per game.

    Was this from the 49ers game? I don't think Atlanta has the run defense to win this game. I expect Seattle to win by 10 pts or more.

  • I feel like a lot of Seattle fans are using early victories against Green Bay and New England as to why you will be able to stop a prolific Falcons offense. Claiming to have stopped better offenses. Keep in mind, Green Bay started the Season 2-2 and New England 3-3. Much like the Seahawks, they started slow and the strung off a mass amount of wins in a row.

    Turner had almost 100 less carries this season, than last. Last season we had a non existent screen game in which our OC (current head coach of the 2-14 Jacksonville Jaguars) said publicly multiple times, we did not have the personal for a screen game. As if that isn't damaging in any way. The same personal this season leads the league in screen passes. The screen game is part of the running game excuse. It serves the EXACT same purpose as the running game. Keeps the D honest and forces more into the box. We don't just use Jaquizz Rodgers in the screen game. We use Rodgers and Snelling, and even Julio, Roddy and Turner. Yes, Turner.

    Our offense has played some of the best passing defenses in the league and came out way over their season averages allowed. Hence, we won those games. I don't see the season average thing being any different.

    I am also very interested in the Detroit and Miami games, in which most Seattle fans are claiming you just flat out laid eggs in the 4th quarter on the defensive side of the ball. I'm pretty sure the Bears fans can say the same thing in defense of your OT win vs them this season. However, what I see in both of these games is that you blanketed their best receivers. Calvin Johnson only having 50 yards and Hartline only having 17. What happened in these games? Well their other receivers, who are talented, but far less talented than Jones or White, and Douglas/Gonzales, went off. Titus Young and Davone Bess had career days putting up 100 and 129 yards. Pettigrew and Clay also had their best games of the season putting up 78 and 84 yards.

    With Clemons out, and Atlanta putting pressure on his replacement (who I know has 8 sacks) by running to his side, and lead blocking him behind the play, I don't see your D getting much pressure on Ryan. If you start to get some, he will definitely have some creative screens called to negate some of the pressure. All the weapons we have, and the fact that I know Koetter is looking at the Detroit and Miami 4th quarters, I just see Atlanta having no problem moving the ball. Even against Arizona with the 5 interceptions, we moved the ball. At least 3 of those interceptions were tipped balls, not forced.

    I see it being a hard fought game with Seattle getting their rushing yards with some scattered passing yards, and Atlanta getting their passing yards with some scattered rushing yards. I see Lynch breaking a few 20 yard runs, and probably a big gainer. However, I think it comes down to Browner and Julio, as well as Julio/Roddy/Harry/Tony across the middle against Trufont. I just don't see Seattle being able to stop everything, while I see Atlanta knowing that the run game is Seattles bread and butter, and forcing Wilson to beat them with his legs and arm. I see him making a few costly mistakes in an environment which can get pretty damn loud. I'd say top 5 in football in terms of home field advantage.

    There's a lot of odds stacked against both teams, and this is by no means a given game for either team.

    I just see it being a great game of match ups, and a fun one to watch. It's too early for me to confidently predict a score. But I do see Atlanta winning (I am a fan though.)

    I appreciate all the non hostile football talk. It's a breath of fresh air from what we normally see.

  • Detroit part Deuce. 28-24L

    We shut down their big guns in White/Jones but get eaten alive by Douglas and Quiz on the slants and screens. Russell plays well but has one big misque throwing a pick to Samuel.

    I hate myself but I'm a betting man and right now my money would be on the Falcons. Everybody is on the Seahawks jock and are way over playing ATL's quick playoffs outs in the past. They are a different team and any mistakes will cost us. If we play a flawless game we can overcome but the odds are against us.


    Please be wrong, please be wrong..... FYI I last time I picked against us was vs the Jets, I was a week early on the letdown to a bad team, but I did sense the letdown. Hopefully I'm a week early again.

    They beat Chicago and the Giants last year with 10 am start times. The 10 am thing isn't as much of an issue with this current team.

  • I've been struggling with this all week. In the end, I have a bad feeling the our team's pass rush issues will be their undoing. I keep flashing back to visions of their offense moving down the field with the game's last posession and scoring to win it in the end because Ryan sits in the pocket without pressure and picks apart the Hawks' defense. Of course I sincerely hope to be wrong.

    We have had plenty of time to address 3rd down pass rush issues and find our weaknesses. Clem or no Clem we will be able to put sufficient pressure on the Ryan to force at least one turnover. The addition of Patrick at DE, he is ripped, in nickel will offer a differant type of player on the strong side nickel package D. Although start time is a bummer, this is the playoffs and adrenaline will be flowing in our young Hawks. We keep them to 2 touchdowns and some feild goals.

  • I say it's going to be very close. I never go against the seahawks. Longwell comes in and makes a FG from a 2 minute drive by wilson. 23-20 Hawks.

    That's me every game. Including this one.
    World Champion Seattle Seahawks football. It's an addiction, and there is no cure.

  • I ain't skurred... I'm from the future and I have my sports almanac with me right now. Sadly, if I nail the score exactly, I'll have the FBI/CIA at my door wanting to steal my technology for it's evil purposes...and I can't risk that happening.

    But....

    ****SPOILER ALERT****

    Seahawks = 50 burger
    Falcons = Not as much as us.

  • Say it ain't so Aros,................say it ain't so.

    Please,...............Russ an' the boys are going to eat these guys alive.

    Seriously,...........

    .........I love the matchups (across the board), but I still think Ryan is a choker, and Wilson is NOT.

    And our Defense,...........fuggedaboudit. Lights-out. Shut-down. Whatever!!!! They're IT.

  • I have been a Hawks fan too long to make some blind, homer pick.

    I was thinking after last Sunday, that the Seahawks had accomplished their goals, that they had done enough this season because as a fan, I was satisfied with their run.

    Then I realized something, the Seahawks aren't satisfied. They know that they can beat anyone and the more I looked at the Hawks last 9 games, the more I saw a team that doesn't have to do anything special. They just what they do, every week and they usually end up on top when it is over.

    The events that transpired over this run have been different, but all 3 pieces of this team have played consistently in every game.

    The defense has allowed just over 12 points a game in their last 6 games with 3 of those games on the road.

    The offense has run the ball to levels I can't even fathom in that stretch and the passing game has been more than efficient as Wilson just keeps that steady composure, no matter the situation.

    I am not one to over analyze stats, but it is easy to see that Hawks just have to do what they always do to get a win in Atlanta. The Falcons are good enough to win 13 of the regular season games they were presented with. None of those teams are like the Seahawks, none of them.

    The Falcons aren't the 89 Niners, they have weaknesses, several of them in fact and the Seahawks will find it and exploit it without even focusing on it.

    The only weakness I can even potentially present for the Hawks is the hole left by Clemons, but that hole (which has yet to be proven) is the run defense that Clemons had. Too bad for Atlanta that they don't focus on running the ball much.

    Aside from that, I just feel the consistency from the Hawks is too much for the Falcons to handle. Wilson does not get rattled, ever, this team has absolutely no pressure on them to do anything differently than they have been doing.

    That's why I am giving this to the Hawks, 30-23. I typically go with Todd on these picks, but not this time.
    Eh... Whatever...

    I'm a homer all the way. Red Bryant blocks a field goal attempt in the final minute to preserve the win.
    Go Hawks, Just win!
