    • Against SD we didn't punt, scored on 4 drives, and had a missed FG and endzone interception. So basically 6 scoring drives (out of 7).

      Against NE, we punted on the first drive, scored on the next 6, then took a knee.

      I say Seattle's D plays a little better, but we score the most points. 3 TD's plus 2 FG's for a 27-13 final. Our defense has been as good as Seattle's in the playoffs, against better offenses. I think we have the better run D and short passing game so weather will not save them (other than making the game more random).

        And this is analysis from the same guy who thinks that Crabtree beat Sherman on the last play of the NFC Championship game...

        :facepalm:

        Does the term "zero credibility" have any meaning to you? Apparently not.

          Except what he's saying is entirely true, and Seattle's Defense hasn't really played anyone this season.

              Easy. I grew up in Denver and went to my first game in 1970. My folks had 4 season tickets (5th level, west stands) through the 70's, 80's, 90's, and 2000's. My mom finally cancelled them (by then they only had 2 season tickets) during the McStalin regime.

              In 1987, I moved to Seattle where I have lived ever since. So I've also been following the Seahawks for 27 years.

              Whenever Denver played Seattle in the old AFC West (before re-alignment) I had tickets to the game and came decked out in Denver Broncos regalia. The Kingdome fans tolerated me but did not appreciate me.

              After re-alignment, I now had 2 teams I could legitimately cheer for, one in the AFC the other in the NFC. Whenever they would face each other, I would cheer for the Broncos, but otherwise, I cheered for both.

                Lol stop lying.

                There weren't any Seahawks fans in the 80's and 90's.

                • I don't think Manning will even test Sherman in the game. Lull him to sleep more or less than, only if needed take a shot or two at him with double moves when he's frustrated with lack of plays. Seems to be what Manning had done over his career.

                  • Last year Matt Ryan took Sherman deep to Roddy White. If the guy Sherman is covering is open, he should expect the ball.

                      Drew Brees X 2


                      That is 7 games against at least decent QBs. I am not sure our QB list is any harder tbh.
                      I fixed your bpost

                        No it won't. The Seahawks pass rush isn't a match for our o-line. Seriously they only managed three more sacks than the Broncos this year, and a lot of those were coverage sacks. They aren't anything special.

                        Edit: New England actually has a better pass rush.

                          Manning throws to the open man. If DT can get open against Sherman he'll see the ball.

                          • As long as we hold up in pass protection, I'm sure we'll find guys open to throw to.

                            I can actually see the RB's being huge for this game for us. Seattle might be so focused on limiting the Four Horsemen that they forget about Moreno/Ball out of the backfield. Manning has shown he is perfectly willing to just dump it for 7 yards a pop like that if they give it to him.

                            Also, I believe Sherman does NOT strictly shadow a WR. That means he will not exclusively be covering DT.

                            Seattle has an excellent secondary. They match up well against us, it isn't like we have an overwhelming odds in our favor here. Sherman likely shuts down whoever he faces. Earl Thomas is excellent. Then Browner, Maxwell and Thurmond all are pretty solid. Kam is decent.

                            To me, they probably will play a lot of mixed coverages limiting the four horsemen, but leaving the RB's potentially open for big plays throughout, which will then open up the crossing stuff. Key is also to have a somewhat decent ground game.

                            We gotta be able to run on them in their nickle set when they don't have an extra guy in the box.

                              Been studying Browners game real close recently?

                                Hah. Unfortunately Maxwell has replaced Browner well, but it's easy to look good when the rest of the defense around you is so strong.

                                I see Welker having a big game, like he did against the hawks last year (as a patriot). From what I understand the hawks play a lot of zone coverage, and it seems to me that manning doesn't get beaten by zone coverage. When they run cover 1 man I think manning will be able to pick apart the defense and exploit a mismatch.

                                As long as the o-line protects him as well as they have the last few weeks, I don't think manning will have a hard time exploiting mismatches. This is one of the reasons I thought SF's defense posed a bigger threat --their strength is in the D-line/pass rush. I like the matchups of Decker vs. Maxwell, Welker V. Thurmond, JT vs. Chancellor, hell even DT vs. Sherman.

                                When the hawks shut down NO, the best Offense they played all year, they did it by making brees uncomfortable with heavy pressure against his weak o-line (which had a mid-round rookie starting at left tackle). That, plus brees was highly inaccurate when he did have time to throw.

                                Basically what it comes down to IMO is how well the O-line can protect peyton. Given enough time he will find someone open, and be able to exploit some matchup on the field. I trust peyton with two weeks to prepare his o-line for the Hawks' blitz schemes. And I trust peyton with two weeks to prepare for the coverage schemes. They'll be ready.
