  • Maybe it's time to get over the Giants game and look forward? Dwelling on it and/or acting like that somehow equates to how they will play in the playoffs is a waste of time imo.
    Doesn't matter who they play, IF they play their A game, they flat out can beat any team in the league.

  • GB NO TB in that order.

    Any other NFC team, I like our chances.

  • I would rather play the Saints than anyone else not the Rams or not in the NFC East.

    I think Tampa or GB would just shell us. We would be down 3 TDs by halftime against either of them.

    The Saints I think we can compete with in a shootout.

    Obviously Green Bay in inclement weather would be a nightmare for us. Especially now that GB has a much better coach now.

  • Since when do the Hawks get Shelled? It's pretty rare. Maybe a game a year. Getting blown out is not even close to normal in Seattle. This offense can put up points on ANY team in the league.
    Not trying to argue, just saying that this is the playoffs. It's shouldn't matter who they play, it's gonna' very likely be a good team. The assumptions that they are gonna' get smoked seem a little far fetched.

    Saints are last on my list. Brees is done.


    I much more concerned about Kamara, that dude can put away a game. KJ and Bobby can't handle him. Having Thomas and Brees Healthy will prevent us from being able to put 8 in the box all the time.

    Rodgers is playing much better this year than in the last few but Bress isn't totally done, still completing 70% of his passes.


    I think NO is better than GB but playing in GB is harder with the weather. Of course Brady is a Playoff machine. I am not worried about the rest right not. Hoping we dont' end up having to play

    Vs TB
    @ NO
    @ GB

    to get to the Bowl, but Iron sharpens iron and this would make lead to a crazy SB vs KC, Pitt, or Buff

  • Playoffs, everyone is 0-0. What happened during the season has absolutely nothing to do with what happens on game day in the playoffs.
    That's the best part about it. Get in the tourney and let's see what happens. I seriously doubt anyone saw Tenn. almost making the Super Bowl. Get hot come playoff time and anything can happen.

  • For the Seahawks I would say the Packers, but for any other NFC team I would say the Seahawks as it seems as though your defense is starting to figure things out

  • @Lambeau. For sure.

    The last time the 'Hawks won there was twenty-one years ago. Mike Holmgren's first year coaching in Seattle.

  • The Rams with a healthy Goff are my biggest worry. Nothing like a divisional rival who knows you well.

    The Packers are a bunch of pretty boys. Punch 'em in the mouth early and they will fold. Without fans, it doesn;t matter where we play 'em, we're used to inclement weather.

  • I don't like this question. It's self defeating. The only team the Hawks have to worry about is themselves. They have the horses, the experience, the juice, and the mentality to beat anyone, anywhere at any time. Creates self doubt, this line of questioning does.

  • The Hawks can win against anybody if they play their best football but some matchups are more difficult than others.

    Whether you like Aaron Rodgers or not, you have to give him credit this season for being at the very top of the QB profession if you've been watching games. He has broken 10 AY/A nine times this season so far and is averaging 9.4 AY/A with a 44-5 TD-INT ratio. That is right up there for best QB season in history with Peyton's 2004 season and Brady's 2007 season. We'll have a shot if we end up against them but the Packers have a very high ceiling.

  • It's looks like the Packers now with them, like the Seahawks, seemingly peaking at the right time.

    Lambeau Field in January? No thanks.

    I agree. I want us to play the best teams available. The Hawks can beat anybody, and lose to any playoff team. I like that we seem to be peaking at the right time. I want to earn a Superbowl berth so when we play in the big game we enter with confidence.

  • I have seen enough football to know that there isn't a team I am worried about the Seahawks playing and every team on the playoff schedule has a good chance of beating the others. I like the Hawks chances.

    And Rodgers has never beat Wilson here. If there is any year that home field means as little it is this one.

  • When it comes to playing against Green Bay, the refs scare me more than the Packers team does.

    Also, all you lurking Packers fans - the Fail Mary WAS called correctly, the photo from a new angle that came out the day AFTER the game proved it, you just aren't capable of logical and semi-unbiased thinking. I remember that well from my time living in your $***hole state.

    I'm clearly a diehard Seahawks fan and not a Pack fan but do you really think the fail mary was correctly called? Can I see said photo?

    It was absolutely called correctly. Per the rules, simultaneous possession goes to the receiver not the defender and they both had their hands on it with Tate's feet getting to the ground first. Also, for those who say Tate committed OPI; sure he did, but on a hail Mary pass at the end of a game the refs NEVER call that.

    This Packers fan even references seeing the pic in question a couple days later:

    Exactly, simultaneous possession, advantage offense. Packer fans treat it as it was a fumble and whoever wrestles the ball away on the ground gains possession, but this wasn't a fumble situation.

    it seems to me it wasnt simultaneous though. it always looks like Jennings had it first. I mean Tate only had one hand on the ball when Jennings got possession, then he throws his other hand in there. Whatever, it's done and gone and I was thrilled with the call. But it seemed to be a bad call if you look at it unbiasedly. Still glad we got the call because screw the Pack

    Touching, possessing, and controlling the ball are all different things. You can't possess a ball in the air. Also, number of hands touching a ball is irrelevant. If one hand doesn't count then we better go take off all the one-handed catch completions that happen every season by receivers, lol. You should read this part of the NFL rule book, it gets pretty specific.

    I guess it really comes down to if you can see possession there. I would argue that just touching the ball doesnt constitute possession. It seems to be like Jennings caught it and had it and Tate got his hands in there to touch the ball. Rewatching it thought it was closer than I thought. The OPI was so blatant it should have been called though, even if they never call them on hail marrys. But I do recall a few really bad calls against us in that game, so it all came around.

  • I don't mind whoever we get to face. We should be ready for every team. If we want to get the chip we will definitely face the strongest teams from NFC and AFC, so we better be ready. If i had to choose one it would be Packers , but not because i'm afraid of Packers , i worry more about the temperature
