***OFFICIAL*** SEAHAWKS SUPERBOWL WINNER thread (1 Viewer)

im done with seahawks thread.
:goodposting:

I'm a lifetime Seahawk fan. I've seen every snap of every Seattle game since the franchise came into existence. You probably won't find someone here that knows more about the history of the team or more about the current team. That said, I dread the tone of posts that surround my team. I would love to have a rational football discussion now and then, but too many doooshbags have made that nearly impossible here. I would rather spend my time at the Fieldgulls site. The majority of fans that post there don't allow the nimrods to drag everything into chest thumping ego-positioning schtick.

iQuit
Here I submit, "the Elitist Seahawks Fan".

 
Wow - so 2 lucky wins on the road against 2 mediocre teams thanks to gifts (DeAngelo fumble and dumb int by Schaub). Yeah Superbowl champs for sure....call me when Shortie can actually throw the ball
Wins on the road in the NFL are so hard to come by. I don't know how anyone can penalize a team for a road win, whether they dominant, get lucky or it is ugly.

This post is ignorant on so many levels. Did you actually watch either of these games dude? I guess that's what great defensive plays are called now "gifts".

What a tool.
It can be both - Seahawks won today with a great defensive play allowed by a dumb int by Schaub.

 
Seahawks look very beatable today, Any team without a doofus for a QB would have sealed that victory.
They looked "beatable" in the house of perhaps the 2nd-best team in the AFC? Shame on them.
Minus 3 starting offensive lineman, Bruce Irvin , Percy Harvin, Michael Bennett for a good portion of the game, and a Chris Clemons playing his first full game as starter off his ACL tear last year.

Yet they still won. Room for improvement I would say.

 
I'd love to the see the Seahawks vs Broncos in the Super Bowl in New York. It'd be funny that they wound up with two teams from the other side of the country. I know one of the teams typically fails to make it, but I can't imagine it being the Seahawks if they lock down HFA. No-one is going in there and winning a playoff game. Someone will have to beat Peyton in Denver for it not to happen.

 
I'm interested to see updated Vegas odds.

Eta: next Sunday night....texans and niners will be a blood bath.

cleary DEN and SEA have to be 1-2 in power rankings...

SEA has earned their rep in part for being undefeated at home since 2011, and the dominant stretch at end of last season (set a record for point differential over three games?)...

i think there are legit questions about SEA on the road...

they were 8-0 at home in 2012, but 3-5 on road...

they are 4-0 in 2013 (credit where it is due, wilson is very resilient in face of adversity), but beat CAR 12-7 (?) and if not for deangelo williams fumble deep in SEA territory, outcome could have been different... and narrowly avoided a loss against texans... the texans are one of the strongest teams in the AFC (especially with cushing), but panthers aren't an elite team...

i'm also looking forward to harvin returning and what he can do in this offense...

in 2011-2012 (half season) he was about top 3-5 WR in PPR leagues...

i'm not expecting the kind of volume that would get him there in SEA, but am hopeful for possible top 10 WR upside (maybe top 15-20 more likely, though?)...

harvin is of course a massive difference maker when healthy...

a lot could happen between now and the rest of the season...

i think if DEN and SEA met in the super bowl next week (and harvin was somehow healthy and able to suit up), DEN would be favored by about three?

(but even that is hard to say, because if harvin had been healthy, SEA offense may have been more dominant, and maybe put them more even with DEN)...

if super bowl was held in SEA, i don't know if seahawks would be favored by 3, maybe 1 to 2 pts?

convention has home field advantage worth 3 pts... but in SEA, it should be more like 4 to 5 pts (at least)...

Ever hear of the saying "good teams find ways to win". Houston is not a mediocre team in most peoples eyes. Seattle may not have been the best team in either of their road wins but they did manage to win both. Theres nothing keeping the Hawks from improving on the road as the sesaon goes along. No one knows if they have even peaked yet this year.

Will the 9er fans finally shut up if Texas whoops on them? Or will it just give them a other reason to bring up their ancient Superbowl wins again??

Great defensive plays? I question whether YOU actually watched the game. Schaub lobbed the ball up directly to Sherman. The towel boy could come out and make that pick. Seattle has a good team, but the fanbase should be sending fruit baskets to Matt Schaub, you don't win that game without him.

We were without our all pro LT and have Matt Schaub at QB. I'd say its a wash. Besides your offense did nothing until Cushing went out with the concussion. His absence made a huge difference.

Houston had over 500 yards of offense with Matt fking Schaub. Seattle is still a good defensive team, but there is clearly a formula for attacking them. If the Super Bowl was tomorrow, honestly I think Manning would destroy them.

Honestly I think you have to pick SF in this game. Houston is demoralized right now and has to go on the road against a team desperate to keep pace with Seattle. I don't know if the Texans have the mental toughness for it.

Our offense had over 500 yards, yours had 300 total and you didn't score a TD until the 4th quarter when Cushing left the game. I dunno how you can even dispute these facts. The deciding factor was having a QB who throws pick6s in three games in a row.

The score was 23-20. Not sure why yards even matter when PPG wins. Cushing is a good player but if you want to point to missing players the Seahawks clearly had more missing.

The Eagles are 2nd in the NFL in YPG. They are 1-3. LOL.......GG Bro.

They had a hard time for sure.... with 2 probowl offensive linemen out and 3 out in total they struggled. The fact is they still won despite that, and missing two of their 3 best pass rushers. Injuries are a part of the game, winning teams overcome them as the Seahawks did yesterday. :lol:

Im not sure what you point is? You want to point to an in game injury as to why the Texans lost when in reality the Seahawks had far more missing that entire game?

You were right. The offense didn't do jack until Cushing left, and Seattle was *really* fortunate to get the win.

That being said, they had to make the plays that were available to them to make late, and they did. Baldwin catch, Wilson scramble, Sherman pick six - they had to make some huge plays late, on the road, down big, and they did. I'm pretty happy they played like crap for most of the game and still won.

The Texans should be 0-4, 1-3 at the most

They def. made the best of the opportunities given to them, which is what good teams do.

Yup. Just like the Texans D line did against the Seahawks line down 3 starters and 2 pro bowlers. There aren't style points in the NFL.

Maybe Im wrong, but I think he is simply proposing you are not as good as you think.

 
Great win by Seattle but the Broncos are clearly the class of the NFL.

When they get Von back it will be lights out.

Denver looks really good. I hope we get to see them play both at full strength. Arguing over which is better is a pointlesss, futile exercise right now though. Doesn't matter.

I don't really think there is much of an argument. Denver is better. I'd give Seattle a good chance to beat them at home. But I'd still take Denver.

And I love the Seahawks. It is just that Denver has the best offense in the league by a mile and a top 5 D. They are crushing people. Seattle is gutting out road wins with major injuries (in awesome fashion too), but let's be realistic...if Schaub doesn't #### the bed the Hawks are almost certainly 3-1.

A lot can change from here on in though.

Show me where I said we were good? I have only commented on this past game, I don't recall ever toting the team over the course of the season.

While it's hard to argue with what Denver has done - I think Seattle matches up pretty well with the DEN offense. The SEA D has no fear of Denver's run game and they can lockdown the WRs and get after Manning. SEA DEF played the first half of yesterday's game in fear of the HOU rushing attack - playing a different scheme than what they normally do. I couldn't quite tell what it was but it clearly wasn't working as they were getting picked apart. They made the adjustments and went back to what has worked for them in the second half.

As for the bonehead Schaub play - good defenses make their own "luck". HOU like to run the stretch play to no end, it was 3 and 4 - I think the defense knew they weren't running in that instance so they were looking for the play action off of the stretch play - Chancellor (I think) "luckily" rushed directly to the spot Schaub was going to be at when he turned to his right after the play action fake going left. Sherman knew the route tendency in that instance (Daniels in the flat) and was "lucky" to jump it and get the INT. Sure he shouldn't have thrown it - should have just eaten it as they would be punting anyway - but the Seahawks had just marched 98 yards for a TD and only 7 points down at that point - momentum was turning... he was trying to make a play to win the game.

And after halftime, the Texans offense disappeared. Barely crossed midfield. You lost. Deal with it.

It appears reading comprehension is a problem for Seattle fans on this board.

Sweet. What position do you play?
Where is there anything in context that makes you think he's representing himself as a player?
Using the word "us" when referring to a team.
That's not very inferrable that he thinks he's a player on the team. What is inferrable though, is the use of personal pronouns to identify with a team. So if you're dumb enough to actually think someone saying that is really trying to say he's on the team instead of the far more likely colloquial meaning, the least you can do is not compound the stupidity of trying argue it, thus letting everyone know.
Nothing wrong with feeling a deep attachment to "your" team. That's why we're fanatics. As a Packer fan I like using "us" and "we" when talking about the Packers with others. I could say I do it because I have a fancy piece of paper from the team that cost me much more than it is worth, but I was happy to give that donation and see the wonderful 600 & 700 level upper deck. And it sure looks sexy framed on the office wall!

I haven't missed a Seahawks game ever so to answer your question "YES". Your comments were ignorant and juvenile, to come back from being down 17 points, to shut down Houston's offence, to read the play make a pick and return it for for a TD, to do it on the road in a very loud hostile environment, for a second year QB to rally several times for a first downs against the second ranked defense to get his team back in the game!! Sorry if I don't believe in lucky wins and gifts, this was a very gritty game with significant injuries to both teams and if you knew Seattle's past woes with winning on the road you would understand this was no fluke but a well deserved win.

Trying being mature and humble, appreciate the game for what it was, a great defensive battle. The difference maker was the second year QB that you referred to as shorty did not make a critical error as did Schaub, and Houston put up ZERO points in the second half, guess that was a lucky break too <_<
Seattle fans calling someone else ignorant and juvenile, oh the irony! I stated simple facts, which ITS tried to claim was untrue while supplying zero facts to back it up. When he gets called on it, he in usual fashion, resorts to ignorant comments completely unrelated to the quoted statement, aided by fellow Seattle fanbois. Seattle played well and capitalized on opportunities to win the game, but if you think you win that game without a Schaub meltdown because you don't believe in luck then you are simply delusional. There's really no sense in me arguing it further, you Seattle boys aren't going to change your mind. Also I never called Wilson "shorty", you are confusing me with someone else, probably the guy in the beginning of your quote chain, more of that reading comprehension failure that seems to be abundant here.
My apologies I did miss quote, I should have paid closer attention to the member name for that I am sorry, my comments were directed at the original poster. I already backed up my argument with enough facts and frankly I'm done with this topic and the trolls on here bashing Seahawks fans.

There is way too much of this lately on football guys and I'm not going to be a contributor to more garbage.

Well, to be fair, it IS a vocal minority of Seahawks fans that are giving the rest of you a bad name.

Maybe you need to call these people out more instead the others responding to their nonsense? That would be a good start.
