he's a history buff, so i'm sure he takes a lot of lessons from the great generals. he also has a rare breed of skills in that he is not only a master tactician but also i believe he very skilled at overall seasonal strategy. thats something he refuses to even acknowledge in press conferences, just saying the standard "the next game is the most important one" but i think thats bull. he knows the important games for this team are playoffs. they ran 2 QB sneaks in this game, both easily successful. i havent seen that before, and short yardage has been a HUGE deal thru the season.
i suggest there are more things in store for seadderal. we have not played a seriously meaningful game against them in 2 years. people like to bring up those home losses and focus on them, (how many idiotic 72-16 graphics will we have to sit thru this week i wonder) but this is shaping up just as a great general would do it. overconfident opponent, whose confidence can quickly be turned into desperation on their own ground if things start going wrong for them.
thats how i see it anyway. there is a huge difference between this team in playoffs and regular season, in a good way. i didnt see the same difference in seattles playoff game. i believe they hit the nitro too soon on their season. i could be dead wrong, but i see this as being set up masterfully by harbs and co.
