Lawyer Milloy wants to hear sound of silence in Denver


Lawyer Milloy has played 109 regular-season road games over the course of his 15-year NFL career.

So if you're wondering what it takes to win away from home -- a question that should be on the mind of all Seahawks fans and players in the wake of a 3-13 road record over the past two seasons -- the guy with a pair of Super Bowls on his resume is probably a good person to ask.

"Winning football on the road is one of the toughest things to do in this league, but it can be one of the most gratifying things as well, next to winning a Super Bowl," Milloy said this week as the Seahawks prepared for Sunday's journey to Denver.

"The best fun I've always had as a player is when my 53 guys go into a stadium with 70,000 people and we win a ballgame and silence the crowd.

"The best sound in football is silence in a sold-out stadium."

Milloy and his mates have a tough chore on their hands Sunday at Invesco Field. The Broncos are 23-3 in home openers since 1984 and have won their last 10 straight.

Seattle is 5-20 all-time at Denver, but did win its last meeting at Mile High Stadium in 2006. The Seahawks aren't alone in their difficulties at Denver, as the Broncos' .738 winning percentage (163-58) is the best home record in the NFL over the past 26 years.

Milloy acknowledges the challenge facing his Seahawks, who were 1-7 last year on the road, the seven losses coming by an average of 21.9 points.

"The biggest challenge on the road is just how can you go into an environment that's different than what you're used to and make it normal," said Milloy, 36. "That's the thing. You see it in the Super Bowl. The first team that gets through all the elements -- the fireworks, national anthem and celebrities -- and focuses on how they got there is the team that usually wins. It's the same on the road."

Seattle's road woes are magnified by the contrast with their homefield edge at Qwest Field. The Seahawks rode the 12th Man momentum to a 31-6 win over NFC West favorite San Francisco last week.

If they can back that up with a victory now away from their home turf, it would go a long way toward setting a new tone for the franchise under coach Pete Carroll.

"When we're at home we feel like we have the advantage with one of the best crowds in the league," Milloy said. "On the road, it's flip-flopped so there has to be more communication on the offensive side of the ball and defensively we have to take their best punch early and be on top of our game.

"It all boils down to is how fast can we get to playing Seahawk football. We respect every opponent we play, but when it comes down to it, it's all about execution and preparation."

.738 winning percentage huh?
That is a cherry-picking stat if I have ever seen one
In the last 5 years, we are 26-16 (.619) at home
If you think that sounds good (and I hope it doesn't), in 2005 we went an incredible 9-1 at home including the home games against the Patriots and Steelers
That means in the past 4 years, we are one game over .500 at home
Whatever you want to say about losing the Mile High Mystique, that is absolutely NOT getting it done

IMO, 6-2 at home is the standard for a great team, and we need to get there again to consider ourselves one

On a related note, I almost forgot Lawyer Milloy was still in the league
I would love to see a deep pass light up that hot bag of wind :approve:

Is Milloy the dude that used to play for the Patriots in the 80s?

He's still alive?

Never mind. It is quite obvious you pointing out that you being here 3 years longer give you a pass at not knowing that we dont need big words for those 90 years old or to give credit to the article you took as your own. Carry on Big Guy.

I get the exaggerated joke... but his rookie year was 1996 the SAME year as Dawkins. It'd be wise to not count him out... he's been playing at an extremely high level his entire career only excluding last season which I believe was extremely limited due to injury.

if we cant inform, insult, embarrass and ridicule all in one post at the mane, then why are we here? It isnt the fact that it was huge and I can not read it. it was interesting and would have found the article to my liking.....if he linked that too.
