When the whole nation counts us out...
Wed Jan 11, 2017 11:41 am
  • Every poster / media person is voting for the Falcons... Y'all remember when the whole country thought the Broncos offense was going to destroy us? How on earth could we have stopped that o so powerful offense? No one was thinking of Seattle that year as one of the greatest defenses ever until after that victory.

    We have seen time and time again with this squad, if you count us out.. Say we aren't good enough.. this team punches you in the mouth and it punches you very hard...

    I guarantee you our players are paying attention to the media like they always do...

    I LOVE THIS! Stephen A Smith said it best earlier this week... This team is full of rough riders.. full of some straight dawgs...

  • If RW hadn't been injured and our 3 rookie O-Line had gotten it together sooner we probably would have been the #1 seed but you know what?....There is a lot of fight to this team regardless of who is injured or young.

    I liked what I saw last Saturday, and remember all the last 3 road games although we started slow we finished well. People are freaking out about no ET, but if you watched the first match up this year, Earl was beaten many times for long gains and TD's. In those three divisional losses on the road, the Seahawks outscored their opponents 52-10 in the fourth quarter. Keeping from getting in a hole is pretty important.

    This time we have Kam in, and Clark, also Rawls. Against a very porous run defense by the Failcons.

    I like our chances.

  • Seems like whenever this team is written off is when they perform best. Hope they do it again this time. I remember the media saying they had no chance of beating tom brady in foxbourough earlier this season.

    This plays best when it can prove people wrong. Listen ATL is good and they have a good shot this weekend. But i've seen this team play against the best of the best offenses and beat them time and time again.

    I said it in another thread. The only thing that changed with us losing the 2 seed is this game is played in ATL.

    Someone said that i wasn't thinking about the wild card game......

    And you know,,,they're right... although not the way they thought. I think we regained our mojo vs the lions. Look for us to come out and POUND the rock. We found a receiver who can help offset losing Lockett and the oline guard to guard dominated! Im so stoked!!! ahhh can it be Saturday already?

  • Heck, why are the Seahawks even there? They don't have a shot in hell. They might as well pack up and go home. :sarcasm_on:

    Many on this forum said we didn't have a chance against Atlanta even if we beat Detroit. Glad that has dissipated away and most seem to be on board. A united front is encouraging and it isn't just rah rah homerism. A win will be tough but it seems a lot of .NET participants are envisioning a strategy we can win with.

    All for the soul snatching and I want a ton of first downs and a high 3rd down percentage rate.

    No, I sure don't. I remember close to a 50 / 50 split myself. #1 O vs #1 D, many will take the D every time.

    That was a big game for me, normally im the knock on wood, don't jynx us type of guy. But with all the hullaballoo on this board before I had enough and was battling with the nega hawks fans. I guaranteed a W. It changed my lead up to games since.

    And YES we will beat Atlanta this weekend.

    Agreed. The most important thing to me is the Hawks are playing indoors on turf. If the game would have been scheduled for Clink and the weather had been freezing or rainy I'd been very concerned.

    Terrell has been improving. He's not the huge liability he was earlier. Like Pete said, he doesn't make the same mistake twice. If Kam had been playing in that earlier contest I seriously doubt the Falcons would have scored 21 points in the 3rd. Looking forward to seeing this defense with Kam, Morgan, Bennett, and Clark all playing in post season form.

    That's cause Atlanta's at home, well rested and favored to win the game.

    If there's one thing I wish would go away on this forum it's the tinfoil hat conspiracy theory that somehow the national media hates Seattle.

    Now maybe some media people and other team's fans are tired of us winning, and therefore want us to lose........like we do with teams like the Pats, Steelers, etc? But to think there's some sort of bias against us is nonsense.

    While I agree that there is no conspiracy against the Hawks, pundits have biases against teams (not just ours). It is individual to each person. Some hid it better than others. Just like an announcer who was an offensive player will be biased towards that side of the ball when calling things. Human nature.

    Also the large media markets dominate things because that is where the money is. A bias but not personal. If Seattle became a top 3 media market then they would get all the press as well. This applies to legacy teams as well.

    Also going against the grain when talking about things also gets ratings. Controversy and all that. Lets not kid ourselves about how sensitive this fan base is. If anyone criticizes or picks against us then shame on them. Once again driving up there ratings. Kind of self fulfilling for us.

  • Just had to shut off NFL network after only a few minutes....
    They showed a preview of our game and spent four minutes talking about how great Ryan and jones are and showing throws and touch downs and two seconds on showing Sherman. How out right biased this game will be.
    Sickening
    I hope our guys come out fired up and kick the sh** out of the Falcons.

    I watch and listen to an unhealthy amount of sports talk, and I have for the better part of 30 years. Both local and national.

    Other than the random Skip Bayless who only says crazy crap to troll and get ratings, I've yet to notice any perceived media bias against the Hawks, or any other Seattle sports team.

    The issue here is not the national media, it's us. There are too many thin skinned relatively new homer Hawk fans that can't handle when media people, other players, analysts, broadcasters or anyone saying negative things about our beloved Seahawks.

    So THAT'S perceived on here as a bias against us. Thus the dozens of threads started each and every month, like the one we're posting on now.

  • Atlanta is a much better team than Detroit, but very beatable.

    I want to see a chippy, angry Hawks step onto the field, hungry for a brawl.

    If that version shows up, I see the Falcons starting to cower by the 2nd quarter and we roll from there.

    If we start off slow and allow them to think we're not so tough, there could be trouble.

    Curb stomp 'em quick and ask who's next.
