I'm sorry, but you're just stupid if you don't think what Gettleman has been able to do thus far with this team with limited money and draft picks is anything short of a god damn MIRACLE.
Rivera, I can see being an average coach. Gettleman has pulled talent out of his ass for super cheap the past two years.
Thanks for not forcing me to say that. Gman's job should be safe until he chooses to retire. I think he's got a great eye for talent. Is every single move he makes a winner? Nope. Does any GM strike gold every time? Nope.
It's easy to be 'complimentary' when you win and you're responding to civilized fans of the opposing team. That said, I'd rather be on seahawks.net today, reading positive Panther posts, than plowing through all the gloom and doom on this board. I just don't get people who want to wallow in misery and always look at the dark side. The team progressed from 3-8-1 to a division crown and gave the NFC top seed a (mostly) good game, and did it by plugging in rookies and some young FA's. Next season there's more cap space and fewer holes to plug. I'm looking forward to another division win and a run in the playoffs.
Our 3 wins on the road this year aren't impressive. Lots of points against the Falcons and Saints, but those two allowed an average of 26+ points/game.
The 2 losses on your list happened when we were suffering from injuries, juggling the thin OL, and depending on older, slower vets at skill positions. Do what Dallas did in Seattle and we win- 3 TD's and 160+ yds. rushing, along with controlling time of possession. Even without us doing much on offense, the Hawks haven't dominated us in the last 3 wins, but we keep letting Wilson beat us.
i did not realize how significant this stat is.... pound the fuggin rock this saturday. but dammit shula be creative with it please....
I was about to make pretty much the same comment. If you trust trends this is one to watch. And I'd say Shula did pretty well mixing up the run against AZ. With Seattle's strength in the secondary, they'll certainly be keying on stopping the ground game.
Seahawks fans aren't exactly the smartest tools in the shed, they're just good at talking junk lol. I'd expect a typical Seattle/Carolina game. Lots of Defense, and not alot of offense.
I don't think your choice of favorite NFL team is related to IQ.
What I like, going into this game, is how well the running game is doing. We're loaded with healthy backs, and they're getting some running room. And then there's Cam to deal with. We'll see if the OL holds up.
