Aros' Fearless Prediction Thread (Seahawks @ Steelers)

The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13
  • I see a rebound in overall performance from Week 1 and even though the Steelers looked anything but formidable in Week 1, I also see them rebounding in their home opener. 10am start in a place that has always been tough for the Seahawks to win, I just think the likelihood is a loss. Next two weeks could be a tough haul as this young team continues to find their way.

  • I also believe both teams play much better this week. I don’t see Pittsburgh’s Dline as good as the bengals young aggressive group. Russ will have more time to access the field and the Hawks will control the TOP battle and win.

  • We continue the seemingly scripted 3 and out offensive playcalls for most of the game and score only one field goal in the first half. 4th quarter the offense gets hot and moves the ball, but only score two field goals.

    Clowney will be fun to watch.

    Seahawks will have 150+ rushing. I think Wilson will finally keep the ball w/ RO.

  • After my nearly spot on, flawless prediction of last week's Bengals game, I feel confident about this week's prediction as well. You should all be in awe.

    James Washington carves up our secondary, similar to Ross. James Conner picks up tough yards and the Steelers dominate the TOP battle.

    Wilson plays well, and keeps the game close. Jason Myers breaks our hearts at the end though, and the bloody Steelers prevail.

  • Seahawks run the ball gaining 100 plus yards, while Dangeruss throws for 340 yards and 2 TDs, DK gets his first NFL TD. We still play like we aren't a well oil machine (yet).

    Defensively we shut down their run game and play well against the Steelers. 1 int and 1 fumble recovery.

    Stealers get screwed by a bad Defensive PI call, Myers puts through a chip shot FG with 0:00 left on the clock.
    Pissburghs fanbase goes all apeshit conveniently forgetting about the gift that was XL*.

  • For 2 games now (cowboys playoff, and last week), I have seen a horrid gameplan, and a stubborn need to stick to it with no adjustment until the last 2 minutes. I cant in good faith see them able to effectively strategize based on their opponent. People wonder why the patriots consistently are a top team, when the cap is the same everywehere. This is why. They play to their own strenghts and gameplan for their oppents weaknesses. We just dont do that. Until we figure that out, we wil be a wild card team that plays a good game here and there.

    Yep...Belichick and Carroll are same age : but Carroll coaches old school . Belichick runs his team with his coordinators each week for a specific opponent . Every week the Pats play different . Carroll will never change he's old school . We just have to put up with it .

  • The Antonio Brown-less Steelers come out hot in the first quarter particularly on defense. But then the game finally settles in. You can't play 60 minutes on emotion alone

    The Seahawks come out determined to clean up their performance from last week. The line protects a little better, and our run game picks up a little steam. Though not quite at its peak, enough to be respected.

    Then in comes Wilson, Metcalf, and Lockett. They'll make the plays they need to, and Metcalf's name will continue to buzz.


    Without Antonio Brown, people will see just how average Big Ben actually is. He'll gift us a pick, and although Juju will make his plays he's no Antonio. We'll make them earn every yard, which goes against Big Ben's tendencies as he likes to force the ball down field. Every Steelers fan will be yelling "Fire Tomlin," when their problem always has been, and always will be the Quarterback.

    Seahawks win 30-17

    Yes, life has been pretty tough as a Seahawks fan. We haven't had Belichick and Brady on our team and have had to settle for 150 wins vs 106 losses since realignment, twelve playoff trips and a paltry three trips to the Super Bowl. Best of luck in being able to put up with not having Belichick again this season.

  • Steelers were humiliated and they're going to show up angry. I think the Steelers show up to play with a lot more intensity and the score reflects it. I can't see the Steelers going 0-2 against the Hawks in their home opener, in a 10 a.m. west coast start, after the shellacking the Pats just gave them. Hawks will start slow, as always, finally putting some points on the board at the end of the first half. And they'll not adjust well in the second half until it's too late. It will take a while, unsurprisingly, for this team to get going this season. Too many injuries early on.

    One of the rare more-than-one-score losses in the Pete/Russ era:

    Hawks: 20

    2 trips to the SB under Carroll ; which is great but all that you said is in the past . It's past time for Carroll to prepare and adapt to individual opponents before and during a game . I've noticed that many in here are posting the same concerns dating back to last season .

  • One of the few times I will predict a close loss. Mainly because the Hawks don't get their stride until October, esp. after come guys come back and/or start playing (Ziggy, Reed etc.)
    I think we keep it close because of our running game, but a late attempt falls just short.

  • I foresee a shootout. Seahawks shut down the run game but Big Ben lights it up. sPittsburgh is susceptible to the deep ball and is weak covering the slot. DK and Tyler have a field day and Seattle pulls out a close one 31-30. :irishdrinkers:

  • We get Ansah back to play with Clowney and an actual corner playing the slot, I think we harass Ben quite a bit. OL has Iupati premiering and hopefully a little improvement. I see a nail biter with the Hawks pulling it out with a late field goal, 24-23.

    Hard fought game, but the Running Game takes over and wears out a Pittsburgh defensive line that is nowhere near as talented as the Cincinnati defensive line.

  • Looks like Greg Rosenthal is trolling the Hawks...

    LOCK OF THE WEEK: Pittsburgh Steelers 21, Seattle Seahawks 10

    1 p.m. ET (FOX) | Heinz Field (Pittsburgh)

    ...No winning team looked worse in Week 1 than the Seahawks. Their offensive line gave up a lot of pressure and didn't create holes in the running game. Seahawks offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer was out-coached by a first-time D-coordinator, to the tune of 232 yards and 12 first downs. There were positives on defense (linebackers! Jadeveon Clowney!), but the line looks thin again after losing defensive tackle Poona Ford to injury, and no amount of Pete Carroll positivity can make the secondary more talented. There will be no revenge on Bill Leavy on Sunday in Pittsburgh, just more early-season road struggles for the Seahawks.

  • As much as my mind thinks this will be a close loss, my gut tells me we will find a way to pull out a close win.

    Our D-line will give Big Ben fits and control the running game, making him have to beat us. He comes close, but not enough for a W.
