    I agree...the only time they talk about Wilson is when they point out his W-L record as Seahawks starting QB @ Quest Field being 16-1. Hell they talk more about the "12th man" more than Wilson.

      Yeah...anyone who watched the game could see how nasty it was. They went ultra conservative with the play calling too. It was literally as if John Fox and McCoy from Tebow days was calling the plays.

        But to say these stats mean nothing is disingenuous in the least, and in denial in the most. Every team in the playoffs is good and all the tape is out on them. There are no scheme advantages anymore; you are what you are, and the numbers suggest that the Broncos are playing the best defense they have played all year. Just when you need it.

        I just thought with all the handwringing going on with the defense, especially after the loss of Harris, this board would be glad to know how well this defense played when compared to the other playoff games.
        thanks, but i am still concerned that BRADY is smart ewnough and talented enough to expose our weakest link on D and consistently abuse that defender in bewtween running the ball down our throats.
        sorry, this one week stat brings me no comfort.

          Regular Season Stats

          Fewest Points Allowed Per Game - Seattle - #1
          Fewest Passing Yards Allowed Per Game - Seattle - #1
          Fewest Rushing Yards Allowed Per Game - Seattle - #13
          Fewest Receiving TD's Allowed - Seattle - #3
          Fewest Rushing TD's Allowed - Seattle - #1 (tied w/ Carolina)
          Total Interceptions - Seattle - #1
          Forced Fumbles - Seattle - #4
          Overall Ranking - Seattle - #1
          No worries, AB. I made the same call back in Sep and got ripped for it, lol. Common sense is uncommon.

            This is good because we were facing the number four offense that game. And we held the best third down team in the league to 33% conversion, which was their lowest of the year. I like that we modified how we played ball to beat them. That adaptability will play big this Sunday when Belichick takes away what you like to do.

              I went back and watched the game again last night...
              The Broncos offensive drives were simply beautiful. Peyton Manning was in pure control, it was like watching an artist paint a masterpiece.

              Time after time, you look up, 5 mins, 7 mins, 9 mins off the clock.

                Note to self: Never start a thread that might remotely disparage Seattle because Armchair Seahawk will come in and diarrhea all over it.

                  The fact is: Net-net, Denver has at best an above average Defense, taking into account ALL games played this season.

                  Combining statistics w/ common sense, I'd say that Denver's D ranks #3 among the 4 teams still in the playoffs.

                  #1. Seattle
                  #2. San Francisco
                  #3. Denver
                  #4. New England
                  I put NE above Denver purely because of Bellichick.

                    With Chris Harris.

I think Wilson is great, but that defense and that running game is what is really sexy about that team. And yes, Russell Wilson is fun to watch. He's like Jake Plummer only good.
                      nobody knows about that Seattle DEFENSE?!?!?!?!?

                          San Diego actually had the 2nd best offense in the league this year. 1st in yards/drive, plays, TOP. 2nd (to us) in points and drive success rate. The only spot they were ranked a little lower was TO's at 11th (we were 15th).

                          New Orleans was right behind the Chargers at 2 or 3 in all those categories (except TO's they were 2nd). Denver, San Diego, and New Orleans were the top 3 offenses and after that it gets muddled.

                          So Denver with its 3-headed monster at CB for the first time all season looked every bit as good as Seattle.

                              If Denver gets past the Pats (and I believe we will) -- the issue will be whether the Broncos can overcome the time-proven rule that a good defense beats a good offense.

                              Can Denver's offensive machine prevail over SF or Seattle?

                              Yes. With Manning at the helm -- anything is possible.

                                Agree completely, and if Belicheat concedes the run again in this game like he did in the 1st matchup against us, it will be a similar game plan offensively next Sunday as it was last Sunday.

                                That said, Beli always changes things up, so it will be interesting in how Gase & Manning adjust. I have a feeling our defense matches up better with their offense, than does their offense match up with our defense. Let's hope that is the case.
