Ok...let me start out by saying (something you clearly are missing) is that the "Wilson isn't a game manager" comment had nothing to do about who he is playing or what defense is on the field.  I'm not sure why you don't get that but I'm guessing you misinterpreted my initial post.  I don't know how you got the whole Carolina D vs Atlanta D thing but whatever.  The point I was making that Wilson is much more than a game manager, as he showed in the playoffs against Atlanta.  I hate to say I was defending Wilson, but really, I'm trying to understand why everyone thinks he is an Alex Smith-esque QB.  Because he's not.

 

And to answer your question about how they might beat us I believe I answered that as well.  I said I felt like we match up well against their offense (Carolina D vs Seahawks O) BUT they also match up well against us (Seahawks D vs Carolina O) and without sounding repetitive (I already answered this) that the game would come down to which QB handled the pressure better.

 

So, just for you, I'm basically saying that the Seahawks can win on Sunday if Russell Wilson handles the pressure better than Cam.  I also believe their running game is more effective than ours which means they will be able to win the time of possession, something that I feel will be very telling in this game considering the defenses.

 

If we can rattle Wilson and Cam can make the throws he's capable of then we have a chance.  

 

Let me know if I can clarify anything else (more passive aggressive stuff).

 

Youre acting like you said more than you did and you didnt. You used Atl's D as a reference to Wilson not being a game manager. To which I eluded, our D is not their D. The situations are entirely different. Their whole season they rode Lynch to the playoffs, do you disagree? Would they have made it without that line and that rb?

 

and again when you make it point to close with that like you did. . . again. . Im reading like this "Yes Im trying to be a jackass about it"
 

Do I think Wilson is a good QB? sure. Better than Cam? no, he cant make the same throws and he cant magically come up with 3rd downs on 3rd and a bizallion. They both handle pressure well I would say, wouldnt you? Cam has dealt with pressure for years now and he's still thrived.

I'm saying that it isn't a matter of whose defense Wilson plays against, he is NOT a game manager type QB.  Yes they did rely on Lynch and a strong defense but towards the end of the year Wilson came into his own and flat out carried that team at times, including the aforementioned Atly anta playoff game.

 

It's trivial to say that the defense he was playing against has any relevance.  That would be like me saying that Cam turned his season around last year when he began playing poor defenses.  

 

Seattle has a great defense, and an even better secondary.  I think Cam will have to make extremely accurate passes and good decisions, something that I don't think he excels at, so that's why I said they match up well.  And I don't think its a matter of which QB is "better" but more to the point that which QB will be better on Sunday.  If we can run the ball and Cam can make good decisions and score some points we have a great chance to win.  But we will have to play extremely well to do so.  The seahawks have greater room for error because they are simply more talented.

 

And I apologize for the comments, I'm not trying to be a smartass, I actually enjoy talking rationally about the team rather than saying "we're gonna blow them out" or "we're going to dominate them" sort of mantra that has been going around lately.  I just haven't seen anything to make me believe that to this point.  I hope we do, but I am just skeptical that we can.

Got the panthers on 2 of my fantasy teams.

Same here. A ton of value. I'm sure you got them late like I did..

 

   ...could unseat The 49rs as top Defense.

My very last pick in both. Seattle, 9ers all going off the board in the 7 th and 8th. I just smiled and shook my head.

And I'm sure you used that pick on solid depth, perhaps trade bait in a few weeks.

True story.  I did that in my high school Spanish class.  We had to write a story about going out somewhere to eat and what we'd order... well I didn't know hardly a lick of fuging Spanish because I, uh... skipped that class like all the damn time.

 

I wrote something along the lines of "I go tu el McDonaldos y geto el Big Maco"

 

Yeah, my teacher hated me.  :P
