  • I fancy myself a mystic of sorts. So much so that I am at least 60-80 in my fearless prediction threads to-date.

    A-hem.

    So with that said (and out of the way), join me for what could surely be a SURE THING when it comes to prognostication.

    Let me take a look-see...What have we here...(crystal ball clouding appropriately)...

    -- Wow, this is weird. First thing I see is Mike Holmgren returning to Head Coach...But who for? Let...Me...Check...Foggy...Is it...Is it...NO! Really?!?? Let's just say it's a rival of the Seahawks...Weeeeird...

    -- Well here's a real shocker. Walt, step on up to the podium...That statue looks just like you my man...

    -- Richard Sherman, Pro Bowler! Well, duh!

    -- Marshawn Lynch, Earl Thomas, Brandon Browner, Bruce Irvin, step on up!

    -- RW wins rookie of the year for 2012.

    -- I REPEAT. RW WINS ROOKIE OF THE YEAR FOR 2012.

    -- The Seahawks finish 10-6 and make the playoffs. Guess who they lose to? ((((sigh)))

    -- The Mayans messed up. They meant 12/21/2112!

  • I hope you don't mean that we lose to the Stillers right? And as it turns out, the 21st of december is my birthday, so I hope you are right. What a gift the end of the world would be..

    Trick question.

    Also, if Seattle finishes 10-6, I doubt Wilson would win RoY over Luck. If Luck finishes 9-7 with so much as an 80 passer rating, they might just start calling it the Andrew Luck award in future seasons.

  • I agree with Bruce Irvin getting into Pro Bowl. He probably got more media attention than Wilson did. And he is delivering, of course.

    Fairly sure Aros' predicts we lose to 49ers **sigh**

  • 10-6 seems solely dependent on a loss @ Chicago.
    If we win in Chicago, It will send this place into orbit.
    Beat Chicago and 10-6 will be a disappointment, lower record level playoff hopefuls will be crushed, and we an seriously consider being division champs.

    On to my predictions....

    Seattle will finish @ 11-5
    Frisco will finish @ 10-5-1
    Seattle will get a first round bye due to tiebreaker over Green Bay. lol
    Seattle will host Green Bay in the second round of the playoffs.

  • I have a disco ball perched above a wooden dance floor in the basement. Studio 5400 it's called and a select few here would have VIP clearance (no name droppin' here tho) the rest will have to wait behind the velvet rope.

    There is a very noticable spike in my disco balls RPM's when asked about RW and a ROTY award though, and that is always a sign of the affirmative, So Kearly can relax with the Luck conspiracy. No such Luck this year.

  • I'm with Aros on most of this.

    -RW wins Offensive Rookie of the Year after he breaks Peyton Manning rookie record for TD passes

    -Bruce Irvin win Defensive Rookie of the year

    -Seahawks finish 12-4, that's right ladies 12-4 and Atlanta shits the bed again against the Saints, the Giants, the Lions and possibly the Bucs once to finish the year on a skid to 11-5. Seahawks get home field advantage.

  • No way does Atlanta crap themselves that badly. Even if they do, 12-4 is not getting the #1 seed, most likely.

    It's completely possible. Atlanta had been squeaking by mediocre and bad teams all season and then they played the Saints who have an amazing offense and a shit defense. The Saints could beat them again, the Giants are going through their annual November snooze fest but should be awake again by the time they play Atlanta, the Lions can shoot it out with anyone and the Bucs are a tough, young team.

    I would not be placing a whole lot of bets on the dirty birds the rest of the season, there's nothing about that team that scares me. In fact, put them up against almost any of the teams going into the playoffs on a neutral field and I'd be willing to bet against them almost any time.

    Hahaha. Yeah, your wait and see view with Wilson gets you a pretty bad rep on this board. No way Wilson wins with the new golden boy Luck. Irvin has a good chance.

    If you think people are ragging on him because he simply has a "wait and see" outlook on Wilson, you're completely missing the mark as far as why people are annoyed with him regarding Russell Wilson.

  • The Seahawks will go 11 and 5.

    Russell Wilson will break some NFL rookie records.

    We will have 5 sacks against the Dolphins.

    Sherman will intercept Jay Cutler.

    The Oregon Ducks will play Notre Dame in the BCS championship.

    Damian Lillard will win the NBA's ROY.

    All my sports teams will be interesting this year.

    There is no chance at all that wilson wins ROY, Luck took over a 2-14 team and now they are 6-3 with luck. Luck is not only by far the best rookie QB but hes also one of the best NFL qbs as a rookie.

    To be honest, I don't know the backstory or history of Wilson and Hasselbeck. I generally stay away from Wilson topics because they're predictable and boring to me. Just seen people get on him in the few I've read. Could be justified. I really don't know or care.

    Zero chance that Harbaugh or Fisher get fired, so I guess you're saying Arizona, although I'd be surprised to see anything happen to Whisenhunt. He's the only who even has the smallest chance of not holding his current job next year.

  • Maybe by rivals Aros is referring to some of our older rivals.. the Chiefs, Chargers, and maybe even the Raiders. I don't think the Raiders would fire Dennis Allen after 1 season, but they are the Raiders and nothing would ever surprise me with them. Crennel and Norv Turner could get the pink slip though, ya never know. That's an underrated, fun part of being a Seahawks fan.. having played in 2 divisions and conferences, we've got so many teams to hate! Love it!

    And Aros, is there any more room on the RW for Rookie of the Year bandwagon? I was pimpin' this line at work pretty hard last night, much to the chagrin of everyone's feelings I hurt for not saying RGIII.

    As for 10-6, that was my prediction before the season and I've stuck with it all season... until now! As things unfold, I'm starting to get the feeling that the 'Hawks are hitting their stride at the right time and might just go on a tear. Maybe I'm still riding the high from being at the CLink last week. If you put a gun to my head, I'd stick with 10-6, but something greater would definitely not surprise me now.
