Seahawks Vs Eagles Next Week
Sun Nov 26, 2017 6:45 am
  • Good Morning Fellow Seahawks Fans. Can you all help me breakdown The Phili Eagles Opponents since opening day? The Eagles kind of remind me of the Dallas Cowboys of last year with a soft schedule & finishing atop of there respectful division.I may be wrong but I have a strong Feeling Seattle takes The W next week against a team were favored to lose to.

    10-2 Eagles ( take the L against 8-4 Seahawks)

    1Redskins, Struggling Redskins Lose 5-6 record
    2Chiefs, roaring Chiefs beat the eagles
    3Giants, take the L & currently 2-8
    4Chargers lose 5-6 record
    5Cardinals lose in rebuild year 4-6 record
    6Panthers lose,different team since early in season
    7Redskins, take another L
    8 the 49ers take an L but they lose daily 1-9
    9 Broncos lose,but who's there qb? 3-7
    10 bye week
    11 Dallas loses with no zeke in lineup 5-6 record
    12 Bears ( bears took the L) bears are 3-8

    This can be done to any team I understand & the eagles beat who was on their schedule. But let's not make them world beaters yet, they only have 2 teams over 500 Panthers & chiefs under there belt

    I think Seattle starts a run tonight by beating the 9ers & next week make a statement by beating the eagles. DO we run the table? I know its Wistful thinking but , when Seattle gets by the eagles they will run the table IMO... & sorry 4 the book post

    AM I CRAZY NOW SEAHAWKS WIN

  • Even without Sherman and Kam we will beat them. I can’t believe how horrible their schedule is. Teams that come out of nowhere and are aided by an easy schedule always get put in their place when real competition comes along. At Seattle on a Sunday night will expose them. Just wait and see.

  • I remember when this was being said about Carolina in the playoffs. How weak their schedule was, paper tigers, and all that. They destroyed us. Took us apart from the seams and waylay-ed us.
    Not saying I think thats what the Eagles do to us, but strength of schedule means absolutely nothing. Especially when they have beaten all of these teams and decidedly too.

  • Strength of schedule to date shows the Eagles as having the 19th toughest schedule. Same list has Seahawks at 31st toughest.

    Or you can look at this one, which I think is more accurate. It shows Eagles at 25th and Seahawks at 32nd.

    Saying that the Eagles are a paper tiger while ignoring the Seahawks poor record against [one of] the easiest to date schedule[s] in the league is disingenuous, at best.

    We have one of the easier schedules in the league this year, so what does that make us I wonder? We must be rice paper tigers.

    Gotta call bs on Seattle at 32nd. Do they take into account injuries to teams or just records? Do they factor in travel time/distance?

    Edit: lol just had to look for 5 seconds.
    Factors considered in these rankings include: margin of victory and wins and losses of opponents and the opponents of a team's opponents.


    That is from the more accurate one. Looks like a terrible way to judge strength of schedule. What's that saying, it's not who you play but when you play them

    Four or five weeks ago quite a few people were all looking forward to the Eagles game for a "possible battle for first place in the NFC".

    Right now this teams needs to get a win today and then get enough after that to make the playoffs. Just because SF is 1-9 doesn't mean this team wins. There have been a lot of things going wrong the last couple of weeks. It's a road game against a division opponent. I'll start thinking about the Eagles in about 8 hours.

    Maybe they're taking the Nick Saban/Alabama strategy. Play no-bodies and hope to be more fresh than the competition when it comes championship time.

  • The eagles are up 17-0 over the Bears. They took them out of the game early and didn’t let them hang around. They are a good team.

  • Why do we seem to always make excuses for other teams being dominant. Sure, they haven't run the gauntlet, but they've destroyed the teams they should have and beat the good ones they've faced. As others have pointed out, we've faced an easier schedule and struggled mightily. The Eagles are an elite team this year. Doesn't mean they win the SB, but credit where credit is obviously due.

    That said, we can still beat them. It'll take a performance the likes of which we haven't seen since @NE last year, but it's possible. Even though in that game we had a full strength LoB and healthy prosise...

  • Eagles defense is very good....everybody know the front seven was good and they’re without their starting MLB but it’s the secondary that has been the surprise. They’ve been shutdown unit most of the year despite yardage allowed, the exact definition of bend but don’t break.



    The offense is well...very good, as well. Seattle is going to have their hands full but it should be a very good game.

    The big thing for me is how in the hell is that horrid OL going to contain the Eagles elite pass rush from all four down positions?

    I agree with all your points KJ, but I will say I was dumbfounded last year when we were able to mitigate the Eagles pass rush. I have ZERO idea how we were able to do that then get annihilated by a much worse TB pass rush.

    Seymour I'll make you a deal , if Seattle loses today I'll never post on here again. If Seattle wins today you disappear , deal or no deal ?

    I'll take Seattle over 49ers any day. Or do you believe that with all you're heart that we lose ?

    I want this thread bumped next week when the game is on against the eagles

    That is a good question. I think there were a number of factors that played into it, such as:

    1) Rookie QB in what had to easily have been his most difficult environment he's ever played in and a bunch of skill position guys who just weren't any good (Dorial Green-Beckham was the teams #2 WR, Jordan Matthews #1, both gone.) and their leading rusher that game is now #5 on the depth chart this year (and inactive today).

    Offense could never seem to get anything going and in turn resulted in a tired defense.

    2) The Eagles secondary was an absolute mess last year and if I remember correctly, RW3 was able to drop back and pretty much find what he wanted immediately or in very short order.

    Obviously the Eagles have a top offense and defense this year and so a lot of the potential issues last year have been corrected and it's shown this year but as they say, you just never know in the NFL. Any given Sunday. I expected this to be a great game at the start of the season and I still have that same expectation.

    Lol yea because liberalism has done so terribly throughout history lol :roll:


    We're 7-4. We're not the Eagles but what other team is far and away above us? And when, in the history of EVER has a Pete Carroll team gotten blown out? Especially in the Russell Wilson era?

    The way some of you critique our teams doesn't even logically match up with the point spread across the league. The Eagles even struggled against the Niners, so I don't buy that we can't win this game. That's not homerism that's basic logic and reason

  • If we lose to Philly we essentially have to win out, to even have a chance to make the playoffs. Keep in mind that Rams game won't matter if they are two up on us, assuming they beat the Eagles.

  • If we show up we can be competitive. We have to get to Wentz. If he has time he will pick us apart. We will have to adjust our offensive schemes. Let's surprise these guys. The Eagles have score by a 28 point margin in their last 3 games. They in the same time have only allowed 1 touchdown.

    They struggled about as much as we did in this game. Except, the Niners barely put up a fight. But they did struggle with them early far more than they should have

    Even against the Panthers, Cam Newton was terrible and they could have lost that game. They're a great team, but the Rams scare me more than they do. They'll face a real QB this Sunday

    Don't both teams still play a few games after we play each other?

  • If we are to beat Philly the Hawks HAVE TO HAVE A FAST START PERIOD!
    Game planning, play calling, and execution on the offensive side of the ball have to be top notch and not the standard BS that usually happens!

    Defensively they need to be aggressive and put Wentz on his ass early and often. Softzone coverage, and 3 man rushes will lead to defensive failures.

    Also need a new kicker, Nugent is available.

    If gameplanning, playcalling, execution are the status quo, it will be a loss.

    I'm just saying it won't matter unless we finished with a tied record a the end of the season.
    I'm assuming both Seattle and LA beat the teams they should and there is still no guarantee @Dallas is going to be a cake walk either with Zeke back.

  • A win for Seahawks requires too much from Bevell.

    THAT has me feeling a loss is coming. Prime time or not.

    And if it is a close game... then Kris Richard and Blair Walsh need to earn their pay. THAT has me sick to my stomach.
    It was a catch.

  • If the Hawks win the turnover category against the Eagles they could pull an upset. Can't have MVP putting the team in the hole early.

  • Did you see what Matt Ryan did to our secondary?

    Yeah expect more of that.

    Pete and Bevell need to pull a game out of their collective ass if we're going to beat Philly. The business-as-usual will get laughed off the field. We are the same team that lost to the Redskins.

  • To have a chance, they will need to play all 4 quarters instead of two. And the 12s need to treat this like a playoff game, and cause some false starts.

    Twelves Schmelves. You nailed it with your first sentence. The fans don't matter if the team doesn't play well, same as any other game.

  • I don't know if you guys know this but they rotate their DL at all times. All seven of em. If a couple get tired, then they sub with other D-Line players. That's why Eagles will have an advantage. The Seahawk's O-Line will have their hands full. You will never read the stat sheets that say 4 DL players played all the snaps.

    If the Seahawks want to have a quick start, they are gonna have to go to a no huddle offense, EARLY. Make sure the Eagles don't sub in their DL players with fresh ones. If Bevell is smart, he calls it this way.

  • They’ve played 2 teams with a winning record and lost 1 of those. I’m curious to see how they perform against a good team in prime time in a hostile environment. Their fortitude hasn’t been tested in a way that it will next Sunday night. Most teams that feast on lesser opponents that aren’t battle tested in big games usually get exposed and fold like a cheap tent. They may be for real or they may be a product of a weak schedule. We will see what they are made of these next 2 weeks.

    The 24 points they gave up in the 4th quarter against the (scoreless through the first three quarters) Giants in Philadelphia which required them to kick a field goal with 13 seconds left to win clearly demonstrates this.

    Up by six against the Chargers at the half, they were only up by two points with almost seven minutes left in the game. Clearly another demonstration.

    They've been on a tear, but they had three out of four weeks where they weren't in the driver's seat where it could easily have gone the other way. It's not like they always blow everybody weak out.

    I remember looking down from my seats at home against the Eagles last season to watch RW catch a TD pass. Wentz was "too good" the running game "too strong" We were " too inconsistent." At home in primetime, I have faith the Hawks will prevail. This D-Line is about to eat some lunch.
