Exactly. If Roman calls a run for Gore on the last drive I guarantee you he rams it in, we win the damn Super Bowl and Gore gets his deserved MVP. We had the better team and just blew it. Some of our stars are on the last legs of their careers and the Seacocks will be a force to be reckoned with. Not gonna be easy to swallow this loss...
The NFL is way too volatile. Part of me thinks that this was our shot -- that our window of opportunity is over. I could easily see Seattle overtaking us as king of the division next year. I mean, frankly, the defense this year was not as intimidating as it was last year. What will next year hold for it? Plus, some of our premier players are old and aging -- Gore (hitting the dreaded 30 next year), Justin Smith, etc...
Now, we do have a lot of great young talented -- especially Kaep. But I think this is more likely the closing of a window of opportunity than it is the start of something resembling a dynasty.

You must have been one of the same people saying last year that last year was our only chance to make it back to the SB because we wouldn't be able to do it the following season. But that's ok keep up the negative talk so that your hopes are never let down.

Young yes but how long can bowman and Willis play at this elite level before their bodies take a decline? Even worse is Justin smith and gore career is near its end, and Seahawks will be a force to deal with. This one really hurt, cause I feel we were the better team and caught all the wrong breaks or no calls this game, I think we beat this team 9 times outta 10 and this was the one to tonight
agree with everything you said. It will get harder and harder after this year. I will go to my grave thinking the refs lost us this game though.
