Aros' Fearless Prediction Thread - (Seahawks @ Raiders)

The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13
  • Early edition!!

    The first time the Seahawks travel across the pond for a game. I have no clue of the logistics or what the challenges will be for the team playing a game out of the country. Could be a real thing, could be no big deal. Either way, the Seahawks face a rather unimpressive Raider team. I agree with the majority. Should be a win but it won't be convincing. Travel, playing down to the opponent play a role.

  • The Raiders have been pretty bad this year, I'm not sure anyone was expecting that.

    If we keep the momentum we had against the Rams, like on the Offense, and the Defense can get it's act together and not allow 30+ points then we have a good chance at winning this for sure.

  • Hawks played way better than I thought they would last Sunday. That's the best they have looked against the Rams since the early Russell Wilson era, and the version we saw of the Rams on Sunday was one of the better versions. The question is if the Seahawks can keep it rolling and keep improving, or if we just saw the common case of being fired up and rising to meet a superior opponent. We'll find out. I'm hoping for the best.

    No one expected it? They weren’t that good last year and they traded their best player. I guess it wasn’t necessarily expected, but there were certainly indications that they were going to be a flawed team. Y’all should beat them.

  • Whatever the challenges of playing 'across the pond' and in that time zone, they are equally shared by both sides. So that should even out, and we should crush the ray-duhs. Just gotta somewhat contain Beastmode.

    Honestly, I'm really looking forward to how our D does against Lynch. Boy I bet he's glad our old D is gone! :lol: He better not bust off a "Beastquake" type run against us. You just KNOW he's salivating to do just that! Don't wanna see it! :evil: Just like I don't wanna see a pick-6 from Sherm when we play the 9ers...

    Plus between this place and FB, just in my little world, there are a ton of actual Seahawks fans making the trip. Hell, I almost went for it... Very close. So if the crowd gets unusually loud when the Raiders are on offense, we are "officially" the best traveling team in the league... :D

  • Derek Carr gets in a groove and throws for 300 yards and 3 TDs. Jared Cook has an impressive game. Marshawn plays inspired football, and flips off Pete Carroll after each first down he gets.

    The equipment manager brings the wrong pair of cleats for the Wimbley pitch, as our guys slip and slide around all game.

    Jankowski misses 2 field goals, one on purpose.

  • I project that we sink the Raiders to the bottom of the English Channel. I can't be the only one who recognizes that the Seahawks have a complete game going on now, with our offense, the defense and our special teams. A game that they can take out, on to any fiield, against any NFL Team, anywhere in the world, and soundly beat any team we go up against.

    The Seahawks don't have to hope that things go a certain way so that we can avoid having to play any team this year. We can beat them all if we stick to what we have going on across the board right now. Pete Carroll has done it again, and much to the disapointment of a lot of his critics, The Beast is Back, and the LOB is standing proud, My God, we even have a real offensive line, that can take on the very vest defenses out there and beat them soundly.

    Is that to say that we can't be beat? No of course not, there is an element of luck in the game, no matter how good you might be, but we are a team to be reconned with and have rapidly gotten ourselves beck up to the level of contenders that we were when we went to the Super Bowl. The Seahawks are playing like that same crazy bunch of misfits, that showed the NFL and the world that they were worthy of being Super Bowl champions.

    I know we got off to a slow start, but how many times have we been in this exact same position and gone on to win our division and fight our way into a shot at a Super Bowl Trophy.

    I don;'t think that the Raiders can't give us a real game, and we better damn well be focused and ready for anything they bring, but the last couple of weeks, I've seen the Seahawks,reborn, and finaly rise up from the ashes, and sync with each other, on all sides of the ball. Special Teams has been putting on a hell of a show as well.

    I've maintained for severral years now that "The Legion of Boom", is not a collection of characterrs, its a defensive strategy and phylosophy, that is Pete Carroll's, patented brain child that any group of skilled and talented defensive players can be taught to execute.

    There was no Legion of Boom before Pete and John signed Kam, Sherm, Bwags, Earl and and the others of the original cast, but watch what has already happended out there on the field and will continue to evolve over this season. Man if what we saw Tedrick Thompson do last week wasn't Kam Chancellor or Earl the II reborn, I don't know what is. Man that was one of the most impressive take downs I've seen since Earl popped the Gronkster and laid his ass out flat on his back.

    I love what I'm seeing on our offense, 190 yards rushing against the Rams/ how can anybody claim that we don't have a real running game after watching that.

    I know that there a still a bunch of nay sayers laying in the bushes, just waiting for the oppotunity to jump back in there and start up with all the attacks again, I hope that the Seahawks continue to give them reasons to stay hid. We got it all going on right now and I think we are going to hand the Raiders a good old fashion West Coast beat down. I predict we turn Beast Mode into a Meowing Pussy Cat, and Carr will be setting on the sidelines cheering on his backup after a half dozen sacks.

    37-15 Seahawks Win

    Go Seahawks !"


    Post Game Fast Forward: I wasn't 100% accurate on my prediction so far as scoring goes, the spread was even greater that what I predicted. We did hand the Raiders the good old fashion West Coast Beat Down i spoke of, and we did tame the The Mighty Beast.

    In the days leadng up to this game, all the talking heads were carrying on, about how the Raiders were true contenders,
    and how they had just narrowly missed winning games agains some of hte most highly ranked teams this year, and rightfully so. Then when the Seahawks soundly defeat them at every phase of the game, insterad of giving the Seahawks credit where credit is due, suddenly the Raiders are a lost cause, that has been terribly mannaged and coached, and that as such, the Seahawks were able to easily defeat them.

    Its like the sports media talkking heads simply don't want to concede that they were all all wrong about Pete Carroll, and about the Seahawks team as a whole. Nobody likes eating crow, but please, give credit where credit is due.

    The Raiders had played extremely well so far this season, Marshawn is/was on his way to setting new NFL running records for himself this season, and still may.The Raiders had lost all but one of their games, this season, by narrow margins, even their loss to the Chargers wasn't a major discrace like what they expereinced at the hands of the Seahawks.

    When you listen to all the sports commentators afer the game,. I feel like the Seahawks are the Rodney Dangerfield's of the NFL, "They Get No Respect"., in fact just the opposite, a " they get a steady diet of Disrespect". How hard is it to admit that they all got it wrong, and that the Seahawks are playing like the Super Bowl Championship Team that they were and are again.

    I'd say that what we saw on Sunday, From Marshawn Lynch, was him playing at this level best, and our defensive line playing like the Championship caliber unit they are, and simply out classing the Raiders Offense at every turn.
    Marshawn has got no excuses for his beat down yesterday.

    All season long, the press has been touting Marshawn's performances, "The Beast Is Back"." He is back and is playing as well as he ever did, He's going to play angry and has revenge on his mind against the Seahawks". The matter of the fact is that Marshawn went up against the Legion of Boom, and got his butt soundly kicked. I will say that I am glad that Marshawn didn't get injured yesterday, with the exception of his pride.

    Anyone who wants to argue that the LOB isn't allive and well, just rewind and look at the performances of Tedrick Thompson, and Bradley McDougald the past two weeks, tallk about putting on the "hits" or "Lowering The Boom" if you please, no one in the NFL doest it better, The crack as good as Kam, or Earl e er did. Go back and watch the replays, they both lead with the shoulders, connecting first, the helment banged together afer the initial impact, which is incidental, thus why no flags. I had to get that in there.

    Now, last but not least, my prediction for Derek Carr, I couldn't have been much more accurate in that call. "Carr will be setting on the sidelines, cheering on his backup, after a half dozen sacks", LOL pure speculation when I picked " a half a dozen sacks" but it was exactly 6 sacks before he got escourted off the field with his shoulder injury. Nuff said!

    Marshawn was a true phenom in his hay day, and gave the Seahawks his all when he played for us, he is giving his Oakland Raiders his all now. The Seahawks have a few new Beast's of their own now, with Carson, Davis, Penny, and soon enough, we'll have J.D. McKissic back our the mix,talk about an unstoppable force. That is of course as long as our offensive line is able to stay relatively healthy. They are in

    If there is one negative in all of this, it's the way that the media, exused the Raiders loss to us, by redefining them as a bunch of no talent bumms who couldn't beat anybody, "not even the Seattle Seahawks" ! Instead of giving credit where credit is due, The Seahawks have found themselves again and have evolved into a genuine force to be reconned with by every team in the NFL that we face. .


    Go Seahawks!
