I’m as homerific as a fan can get. Total kool aid drinker.

Today was such am embarrassment. They were not ready to play at all. I don’t mind losing but this was just too much.

However, I will say this...the Seahawks played out of their everloving minds. They were almost perfect.

Ha at some point tonight I had all the same thoughts. Yowza, such a good team only to be thoroughly embarrassed. The hard part is realizing how much better we need to be and trying to figure out how we begin to do that.

6 turnovers, a Safety, and a kick-off return TD.


These p***yies have done the exact same crap multiple times over the last 2 years. They are not, and never will be capable of winning a SB. Not unless they are playing flag football.

Get a new QB who can pick up a 1st down on the ground if he has too. Get some actual talent on Defense.

Pretty much, don't hold your breath.

Get a new QB.. Lol I've heard it all. The guy just had the best season of any QB to ever play the game. Was good against the chargers, great against New England, and not so good today. Which is terrible timing and luck. Maybe today exposed how deficient the depth and talent really is on this team.

Seattle played better tonight, but i really think it was just a ****ty game. I dont think any fatal flaw happened to be exposed. **** happens, it ****ing blows, so be it.

I love how reactionary everybody is "gotta have a running QB to win the Super Bowl. Pocket passers are dead, they don't win Super Bowls"

Joe Flacco won it last year.

I don't fully agree bro. Seattle played better tonight, because from top to bottom they are the more complete and better team. We are top heavy, and most of that top heavy talent is on offense. Look at their DB depth. Mind you they played without Browner and you wouldn't know the difference.

Tonight really really hurts. But tonight also shows the importance of a good defense and depth.

We ran out of luck and had nothing bounce our way tonight, a botched snap, plenty of missed calls, bad throws, fumbles, horrible blocking, poor tackling, no pressure, poor coverage. The list goes on. It was a TEAM loss. We need to improve the team. Peyton was covering deficiencies all year, mainly due to injuries, but still. We faced adversity all year, Seattle had their own adversity, but their team is far more complete and sound as a whole.

Yep. And this is why I firmly believe it all needs to be blown up. To which the sheep baa "Peeeyton Maaaanning" as loud as they can.

Sure, but thats not reason to "blow up the team" as if that wouldnt throw us right back into football mediocrity. We lost. It ****ing blows.

Whatever. I really need to stop caring. its all so ****ing dumb.

I'm not suggesting blow up the team bro lol!

I'm saying we need to increase the talent on the roster so that even our depth are quality players.

Our fatal flaw is lack of real talent and depth.

Getting 5 starters back on D will help.

Turned off TV - and really at this point you can see that everyone gave up.

Imagine we had the greatest defense in NFL history that played perfect, we would still be down 19-0 (2 points off safety, 10 points off picks from Manning, 7 points off kick returns) in the 3rd quarter. Our defense would have to score 19 points against Seattle's offense to be even, assuming we played PERFECT DEFENSE... just think about that.

In my honest opinion the Defense was the only unit that showed up this game. As an offense, before you worry about drives, and TDs, and third down conversions... the first thing, the very first thing you worry about is turnovers and penalties.

Outside of Von, is there anything really special about those players?

Harris is a great #3 and a good #2, but why not improve overall depth to get rid of players like Carter, Boldin, Jammer.

Moore, while he was missed, there is nothing exciting about his game. He doesn't generate turnovers, he's just a solid free safety, nothing special. Why not push him with competition and make him a sub package player because we have a dynamite FS.

Wolfe and Vickerson play physical and are tone setters for the DLine, but the depth after them, Unrein, Fua, really..

I want physical players, not finesse players on D.

Okay guys, I've got it figured out, the problem is we need to Draft defense. Lots and Lots of Defense, that will put us over the top.
We had turnover issues all year. We had turnover issues last year as well. I do not understand the lack of accountability on this matter. It's infuriating.

The defense didn't show up either. Why is this the common assumption. There was little pressure on Wilson, there was poor tackling all night. Sure Seattle didn't have huge stats but they didn't need to while being up big! I can't help but think of those two TDs where their WRs broke multiple tackles. How can anyone say our D showed up..

To be fair, the run defense was great, and there definitely was pressure but it did no good most of the time. When a team turns over the ball as much as we did it's hard to blame the defense. Don't get me wrong, the defense could be improved, but we still lose this game soundly with all the turnovers.

Seattle didn't have to do much, but still moved the ball efficiently and put points on the board with almost every drive. Sure Lynch didn't gash us for huge yardage totals. But they did everything they needed to offensively.

Think about the score through the early part of the 3rd quarter right.

1 pick - 3 automatic points. 1 pick - 7 automatic. 1 safety - 2 points automatic. 1 return - 7 automatic. And then there's all the field position/drives inside the 50.

That's 19 points at the start of the second half. In other words if our Defense didn't allow a single yard we would've had at minimum a 19 point hole, and remember, Seattle was held to field goals in all their early drives despite field position on our side of the 50 each drive.

I would say you have to think that late in the game people were giving up but through 3 quarters the defense played the best out of the 3 phases.

how many times do you have to punt if it takes you 1 first down to be in field goal range?
