just the fact the seattle has finally gotten some calls to go our way is unbelievable, if there's one team in this league that's been bitten by the ref bug over the years, it's seattle.. as a seahawk fan i feel i'm in the twilight zone, with calls actually going our way for once..
You are absolutely correct, cause GB would have blown your doors off in that game. The refs are why you were in position to win it on the fail mary.

2) Right now I'd say the Packers, New England, and possibly even the Saints are better than the Seahawks right now. That is my opinion. Feel different?
Cool with me.
None of those teams are better than the Seahawks right now, stop it.
NE and saints not even close man. GB we played week one, and even right now i dont think they are a better team than Seattle.
You cant say you give a team credit, by saying they are a good team, but in the next breath basicly saying they are overrated and not the team that they in fact are. Thats not giving a team credit.
Being a fan doesnt mean you have to be in denial. Admiting that a team that beat your team is quite possibly ATM truely a better team, and that the loss as not a fluke, does not mean you are any less of a fan of your team. I f**king hate the seahawks and their fans. I live in seahak country. I hate them. That however does not influence my opinion of them being a damn fine football team, and right now probably the most dangerous, and best team, in the NFC. I said they were the hottest team in the NFL even before they curb stomped us.
Back to the refs discussion. If we wanna continue to discuss the virtues of Seattles team lets do so in the NFL forum....
I understand you agree with him. But saying that we have beat teams better than seattle, and then using NE, GB, and the Saints as measuring sticks is as close to denial as it comes.
This thread is about the refs being the reason we lost this game. Its my opinion that the refs had nothing to do with it and we just simply got curb stomped by a damn good football team. Im sorry if im not following the narative that you want me to follow.
I also noticed your edit. I am not "from" the area. I am "from" CA. I just happen to currently live in ID. The only thing that has biased me is that i have more than likely watched much more seahak football this season than most fans on these forums have. I understand what kind of team they have right now. One of the best defenses in the league, and an O and ST that is about as hot as it can get.
