  • Nice game but we only won because we managed to stop the Rams twice in the redzone with turnovers and limit them to field goals when they could have scored touchdowns if the Seahawks defense hadn't stopped them from doing so.

    And that's not even to mention the offense scoring TDs against the leagues best defense which they wouldn't have been able to do unless they executed they plays which did so

    That's alright. I had the wrong shirt on in the 1st half. As soon as my dryer was finished, I put the right shirt on and Wilson ran for a TD.

    I almost cost us this one guys.

  • Pete had never won a game like this since the SB loss. With plenty of chances.

    And Norton, one of our biggest weaknesses all year, ended up being the hero in a game against a team that almost always had our number. On a day that Wilson struggled all game.

    This is the biggest win for this team since the SB loss happened.

  • Did Norton magically improve, or did the addition of Reed and Dunlap give us something to work with?

    He wasn't shy about being aggressive with actual DL weapons and corners that can cover.

    I think it's a combination of a few things:

    1. Adding Dunlap
    2. DJ Reed > Tre Flowers
    3. Less predictable playcalling
    4. Finding better usage of Adams
    5. Communication and cohesiveness
    6. More press coverage

    Nice post, agree with all of that.

    I think 6 is a function of more confidence in the secondary, directly related to the rest of the points.

    I just think without Dunlap and Reed, we were trying (failing) to limit damage instead of playing d

  • The Hawks only won because Goff hurt his thumb on Mayowa's helmet. Without that, the Rams score 2 TDs in the 4th qtr and win. Plus Hawks got lucky when Adams tackled the RB on 1st down at the 1 and back got injured to boot. Then the Seattle grounds crew had sprayed down the turf before that series to cause Rams players to slip out. That's the only reason the Rams didn't score a TD there. Seahawks also got lucky with timely Rams injuries. Pretty sure I saw the Rams medical staff on the phone with New York before both injuries. Makes me think the fix was in, the Rams medical staff were in on this somehow. Rams are so broke after paying Goff that even their medical staff can be bribed. :pukeface:

    Do I really need to say, :sarcasm_off: ? I was reaching and reaching for anything. Terrific win on both sides of the ball over a really good Rams team. The many fine Rams fans on this forum wouldn't even attempt to argue the fake BS I was spewing.

    Goff's injured hand was a factor though. That would be a sorta-fair "yeah-but"; it got injured as a result of pressure by the Seahawks D, with Benson Mayowa hustling to get in Goff's face.

    I expect this very good Rams team to win next week and be in the playoffs. Much respect to them.

  • It’s funny that the sunshine pumpers think those of us with concerns about the team aren’t happy when we win. I am.

    When we perform poorly I don’t go after other fans on this board that don’t agree with me. I comment on players, coaching, drafting and performance. I suppose I could do it your way and call you out by name after we lose our next game. I could make fun of the “Pete and Russ can do no wrong” crowd.

    The week to week fan bashing is too tiring. I prefer the detailed discussion but there are too many children here.

  • It's the freaking NFL, it's hard to get a win. Most of these players weren't just the best players on their team in HS and college but probably the best players in their entire region. These are world class elite athletes. If you are winning with any kind of consistency at this level, you are pretty gawd-damned savvy.

    Having said that, the players and coaches are only human and make mistakes. That, and their achievements, give us mere mortals something to talk about here. Pretty fun if you ask me.

    Is there such thing as a "sunshine pumper" when the team is 11-4 and just won the division?

    I dont think thats pumping sunshine, I think thats....just......reality. This is a fantastic football team. Again. Enjoy it

    :ditto: Yes! They need a designated challenge flag thief to secretly take the flag from Pete when he's not paying attention.

    He went full on Hingle Mccringleberry today with that flag on that goalline fumble. I was screaming "No Pete! Don't do it!" And then he pump faked a couple times, then threw the flag. :shock: :oops: :evil:

    Maybe it was strategic?

    I remember a game or two ago he made a stupid challenge, but the D was gassed at the time and they then made the stop afterwards. Several in the gameday forum agreed that he was probably going to call a timeout anyway to rest/reset the D so maybe it wasn't bad because challenge gives more time than a timeout.

    Today, again, the D had a chance to rest/reset and they made the stop.

    idk but maybe there is a method to the madness?

  • Still wanting to see a complete game by both sides of the ball.

    Defense won this game.

    Anemic stalled offense on most drives.

    Nothing wrong with wanting to get better.

    Nice win to get the division against a good Rams team.

    But must improve to go on a run.

    And that is facts!

  • To me, today was the closest this team has been to the 2013/2014 teams. It's still missing a little Marshawn and some pass rush...but, still, this defense was flying around today. Russ made big throws when he had to. Carson popped off a couple of runs in the 4th quarter when it counted.

    Today was a good day and will boost confidence in the locker room.

    Rams have the #1 defense in the NFL

    stat / vs Seahawks
    yards allowed 286.1 / 292
    passing 192.0 / 197
    rushing 94.1 / 95
    points allowed 19.2 / 21

    Even with RW playing well below his ability, the Seahawks exceeded the Rams averages.

    It was, sorta, a complete game on both sides.

    But I agree, the Offense (especially RW) needs to get back into form to have a good chance at a run. I think it's happening.

    Idk I agree with boom for once. Maybe not the specific word of anemic, but the offense could definitely improve period. Rams do the same thing..
    every game...every time we play them. Also, dk could try harder to get to balls, oline could pass block better, russ could have hit a couple recievers he didnt. Why do we just forget that throwing to Carson works? Offensive problem. Not jus one man on a team.

    Defense played well as a whole, but had a few slip ups here and there. Goff had a few drives he just moved them down the field with ease. It was scary watching goff seem elite level. Which we know he is not.

    At the bottom of the entire problem is what is causing all these arguments on this site. If the offense can just turn it on in the 3rd or 4th quarter...with little or no time left like its freaking effortless offense...why dont they do it the whole game and just gas a team? They can do it. We have seen it several times this year. Do it a whole game please and settle all these hawks naysayers down.

    That couldn't possibly be right. The Chiefs never score less than 35 and certainly never win by less than 14 pts. They definitely haven't one their last 7 games by less one score. That never happened.

    Remember the other part of the game plan, from the Chiefs win over the Falcons, is to have the other team's normally reliable kicker miss a short game-tying field goal. Hey, it worked for us against the Rams last year.

    You play to win the game. Congrats Pete and the Seahawks for another Division Championship. Defense was lights out.

    And that is all that needs to be said. :2thumbs:

    Nothing wrong with wanting to get better.

    Nice win to get the division against a good Rams team.

    But must improve to go on a run.

    And that is facts!

    Perhaps our offense was "anemic" because we were playing a top 3 defense. :34853_doh:


    Idk I agree with boom for once. Maybe not the specific word of anemic, but the offense could definitely improve period. Rams do the same thing..
    every game...every time we play them. Also, dk could try harder to get to balls, oline could pass block better, russ could have hit a couple recievers he didnt. Why do we just forget that throwing to Carson works? Offensive problem. Not jus one man on a team.

    Defense played well as a whole, but had a few slip ups here and there. Goff had a few drives he just moved them down the field with ease. It was scary watching goff seem elite level. Which we know he is not.

    At the bottom of the entire problem is what is causing all these arguments on this site. If the offense can just turn it on in the 3rd or 4th quarter...with little or no time left like its freaking effortless offense...why dont they do it the whole game and just gas a team? They can do it. We have seen it several times this year. Do it a whole game please and settle all these hawks naysayers down.


    Pete Carroll simply does not want to play that way. Too much risk involved. It is what it is at this point. Hopefully we won't have to dig out of a hole and play catchup to the Saints or Green Bay in the playoffs.

    You didn't write a single fact. Literally every single thing you posted here is an opinion.

    Here's a fact. The Rams have the number 1 defense in the NFL by yards per game, and the number 3 defense in the NFL by points per game.

    I'd like to see the offense play better too, but lets maybe acknowledge that we were playing a very good defense that played very well.

  • Please don't use 2016 as an example of any kind of accomplishment.

    Yes, we 'won' the division but we were nothing but a glorified wildcard team that year.

    It is easy to forget we won the division that year because the only playoff game win we could muster was against a hapless Lions team that hadn't won a playoff game since what seemed like 1847. When we played a real playoff game against a playoff caliber opponent, we looked like we did not even belong on the same field. We basically lost the game by halftime.

    2016 should be considered a mental block by every Seahawk fan because it was an abysmal failure as a 'playoff team' on every level. We looked like a laughingstock.

    Let's focus on this last game potentially showing this team and Carroll have turned a corner on some of his godawful tendencies in key games. The coming out flat thing still happened. But he seems to have released his tendency to turtle up once he has any kind of lead.

    That is a positive.

    I am hoping that the decision not to try to milk the clock to nurse a slim lead, but instead actually attempt to score (and do so!) means this team has turned a corner. That overly conservative version of PeteBall that has screwed this team in the playoffs and key games since our SB loss might finally be dead. Hopefully.
