Aros' Fearless Prediction Thread (Seahawks @ Jaguars)

The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13
  • Ah what the hell, a day early...

    This is precisely the game the Seahawks lose. Coming off a huge emotional win, having to travel 20 miles short of 3,000 miles to play an AFC team that happens to possess the league's #1 defense.

    Yet I am strangely confident about this game. Why? Two simple reasons.

    Blake Bortels and Russell Wilson in December. Checkmate.


    Aros' Fearless Prediction: Seahawks 23 - Jaguars 13

  • I'll pick the hawks too, but I think we will have Red Zone troubles this week. I see a low scoring game.

    16-13 Hawks

  • I wasn't sure the Hawks could play a clean game and beat an elite team and I was wrong. I was expecting another sloppy game like the Falcons game: A game the Hawks could win, but they just didn't play good enough. It's going to take more of what we saw Sunday night to beat the Jags. Calais Campbell has been wreaking havoc and he has always feasted on Wilson. Hopefully the Hawks are ready, but before I predict a win against another good Defense I need the Hawks to prove it again.

  • Seems this thread occurs earlier every week. Like Christmas music. Will we see the Rams prediction thread before the end of the week? ;)

    I'll edit this post with my prediction once I see the Friday injury report.

    EDIT: We got a ref who throws flags.

    Spot on! Campbell is a freaking beast. I'm honestly concerned for Wilson's safety if he gets hit by him...

  • 20 points against the Jags defense would be very impressive in my opinion. We cannot afford any turnovers against these guys, which will be tough given how good they are at forcing them. Bortles can absolutely beat us, but the chances of that are slim if we put some pressure on him. Shut down the run, force Bortles to beat us through the air, play physically against their receivers, and sack Blake. Their WR corp is decimated but underrated. Heard good things about Westbrook and Cole and Hurns might be coming back. Marquise lee could be great if he didn't commit as many critical drops.

    Let's go with 20-16 Seahawks.

    He single handedly destroyed some of our games while on the Cardinals. Joekel is no match for him.

  • Honestly, as I take a look at this Jaguars team ... I see a "good" team ... but I just don't know that I see a "great" team. Sure on paper they have the #1 Defense in the NFL, but as I look at this team, I'm wondering if seeing a bit of a Macy's float here. Just consider their schedule since Week 6 ...

    Week 6 -- vs. Rams (9-3) -- 27-17 Loss
    Week 7 -- @ Colts (3-9) -- 27-0 Win
    Week 8 -- BYE
    Week 9 -- vs. Bengals (5-7) -- 23-7 Win
    Week 10 -- vs. Chargers (6-6) -- 20-17 Win (OT)
    Week 11 -- @ Browns (0-12) -- 19-7 Win
    Week 12 -- @ Cardinals (5-7) -- 27-24 Loss
    Week 13 -- vs. Colts (3-9) -- 30-10 Win

    Leonard Fournette has been a bit banged up with an ankle injury. He was held to just 25 yards rushing by the Cards ... and then just had 57 yards against the Colts (who aren't exactly known as a run stuffing team). So, I see the Seahawks doing what they do best -- stuffing the run and making this Jags team 1 dimensional. Sheldon Richardson was putting on a clinic against the Eagles, blowing things up, and tossing guys around like a rag doll. If Richardson, Clark, Bennett, and the rest of the Defensive Line can have that same kind of game as last week, then there is no way in the world that I see this Jags team beating the Seahawks.

    That to me is the key to the game, as the Hawks are going to force Blake Bortles to beat them. No way. You'd have an easier time convincing me of the existence of alien life on other planets :greetingsearthling: than of Blake Bortles beating the Seattle Seahawks.

    I know Calais Campbell is going to be problematic ... but since Duane Brown has come on board, this offensive line has improved immensely. I know that this is the #1 Pass Defense in the League ... but they are going up against arguably the best QB in the NFL in the month of December ...
    http://www.seahawks.net/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=143177

    In the end, I look for Mr. December to look DangeRuss ... and for Davis to get enough yards on the ground to keep the defense honest. The Jags lost to a Rams team at home that is similar in many ways to us. I'm thinking that's pretty close to what's going to happen here.

    I'm calling it ...

  • No doubt Jags D line and 2ndary are good.
    Tevin Smith is in concussion protocol but might make it back for gametime.
    Good news for us is they were getting burnt by Arizonas TE on seam routes with their two TE personnel. Often clearing for underneath routes too. Well we have 3 good TE at our disposal. We also have an elusive qb who is willing to take yards given him.
    Imagine if they commit somebody to spy Wilson as well.
    Willson and Graham each get a td.

    Final score: Seahawks 24 - Jags 10.

  • Two wins against teams over the .500 mark.

    Football Outsiders have them ranked 23rd on defense against the run. This spells a big day for RW. They're ranked 20th in overall Offense. Somehow I don't see this team giving Seattle the fits everyone thinks they will.

    I predict that Mike Davis has his first (of many) 100yd game in the NFL. He'll be running on grass, back in SEC land, it's as close to home as he'll likely play this season and it's time to show Momma what he can do in the NFL.

    35-6

    We're 22nd in rush DVOA, so we don't really have an advantage there. Take away Russ runs and I wouldn't be surprised if we were 30th or worse. If Mike Davis had a 100 yard rushing game, it would be a beautiful miracle.

  • Seahawks 31, Jags 17. in a game that is not as close as the score may indicate, with the Jags scoring a late TD.

    'cause every game now is a championship game & the Seahawks own December & know how to get it done. Playoff experience is an often overlook factor and the Seahawks have that in spades. RW for MVP, Wags for DPOY......

  • Entirely Fearful Prediction: Jags 24, 'Hawks 13. Seattle comes out limp on the road after an emotional win at home.

    Having found an offensive rhythm, Bevell, for no reason, changes course; the defense gives up ridiculous 3rds and long late in the game; and Wilson refuses to run, holds the ball too long, and takes five sacks.

    I'll be watching and rooting and tucking in my bib to feast on crow. Please, Largent, let me be wrong.

  • I can't doubt them in this game. Bev called a solid game, the strategy was perfect and focused on our strengths and there weaknesses for the eagles. Russ played lights out and the new guys stepped the hell up.

    Will they do it back to back? A few weeks ago I would have had little confidence they would but it's December and we are looking at only a possibility of a wild card spot if we don't bring it every week. I like the way tis team plays when backed up against a wall, so I have them taking this one.

    Weird thing is I don't know how. It could easily be a domination of scoring offense or a defensive battle with field goals deciding it. After this game I will be more in tune with where we are in all phases, but right now I'm going middle of the road.

    I agree Johnny, it could go a couple of ways. I wouldn't be surprised to see a total blow out of the Jags but I wouldn't be too shocked to see a 1 TD and a couple of field goals type game.

    Russ is better than Bortles by a mile.

    But... Russ has absolutely no direct bearing on Bortle's play and vice versa. They don't play each other.

    Their Defense just may put the brakes on RW's MVP season... but I have more confidence that we'll make life very hard for Bortles.

  • I just get the feeling that the Hawks won't be letting off anymore this year. They're focused and have their eyes on the prize. We've been here before (5 years in a row) and the Jags are in rarified air by having a winning record this far into the season, much like the Eagles were. They held the #1 offense to 10 points, and Bortles is no Wentz. Far from a letdown, I'm seeing our dominance continuing.

    Well the last games everybody is making statements. Defense vs no.1 Offense. O-line in protecting RW. RW being MVP. This close contest between two good Ds is the ideal game for Walsh to redeem himself with a lot of FGs.

  • I will temper my confidence a bit regarding a blowout, and think it'll be a more realistic...

  • For some reason, I'm not feeling very good about that game. However, I honestly don't really know what to expect. I predict a win by Jacksonville 20-10 with Graham getting intercepted in the end zone and a defensive TD by the Jags.
