It's safe to say when things aren't going right this team falls apart for some reason they cant adjust and just crumble like a deck of cards. Tonight things were going ok at the start but then when things started going seattles way they crumbled in every phase of the game. Seattle is in there head now and i don't see them beating them at home either or especially in the playoffs.
The bold is what I was thinking. I guessing your typo was actually saying "I don't see us beating them at home". The second part is what worries me the most. Some people are saying "it's only game two" but they're a good team. If our playoff run has to go through Seattle, that's not good for us.
I agree, I don't think we can beat them at home or in the playoffs unless there are major changes and improvements. Bottomline, the Seahawks has our number, not only did they beat us, they totally destroyed us, not just in terms of points but physically too. Furthermore, they are younger, if they can beat us in such a dominating fashion, TWICE IN A ROW, it seems to suggest we have probably just passed our peak while they are gradually moving into their prime. 3 games ago, we could still beat them, only just. They have improved leaps and bounds since then and have surpassed us now. If we really cannot beat, sorry not beat, blow them out at the Stick, it will be suspicion confirmed without a shadow of doubt.
I would agree they are better right now, but with these caveat as to the future. We have lot's of talent yet undeveloped, ie Carradine, Dial, Patton, McDonald, Lattimore and others who could add quite a bit, and veterans like Crabs, Manningham and Eric Wright who could also shift the talent gap.. We are loaded with picks next year. Seattle will soon start face contract expirations on some of their stars. I would never consider Seattle's front office or coaching staff to be in the same league as Harbalke and Co. The drafted well, hit it amazingly with diamonds in the rough like Sherman, Wilson, etc. Will that happen again?...Doubt it. This balance of power could change one year to the next and even look different in December.
