The two things against them were the weather and the 12th Man.

Good evening, Army Bro! I wasn't able to watch the game - I was on the road for most of the afternoon and had to create Fettuccine Alfredo (aka "Heart attack on a plate") for dinner.

I am not at all surprised that the Seahawks prevailed - they are tough and Pete Carroll may well be the best coach in the game at this time. I look for them to go all the way.

Yeah baby! Wasn’t their best game, but it was good enough... the Saints played tough in the second half. One more, then its on to the “Bowl”.

I was at work, listening in my cubicle. Man oh man....that was too close.

I am torn as to who I want to see next week...a replay of 2005 with the Panthers, or a final chance to shut the 40-Whiners up.

Now looking forward (?) to another week of hype for next Sunday.

As I ‘figured out’ on a FR thread it’s just because the Fukushima radiation has come and turned the team into mutant supermen. The same thing has happened in SF and SD.

Sure looked that way in today’s game.

...I thought they looked lethargic and eminently beatable by a team that doesn’t beat itself with fumbles and missed FG’s...

What a snoozer of a game. No wonder millions of football fans prefer the college game to the lame example we saw in Seattle today. By the way, most cities have roofs on their stadiums. The rule should be that if you are playing in Jan., the teams with the roofs get the games.

Looks good. Do us here in GB a favor and kick the s—t out of the 49ers, if they end up beating Carolina.

Pats just intercepted, TD. May be ruled down at the 2.

On the 2 yard line.

Pats TD.

Note to Pete Carroll, The next time the opposing team has no timeouts remaining with under three minutes left, do not score the TD. Go down at the one, take three knees, and kick the chip shot FG to leave no time left for the Saints.

Well they will be tough to beat especially by lethargic looking and eminently beatable teams that don’t beat themselves with fumbles and missed FG’s.

I also attended (and still have the ticket stub to) the first (Mariner) game where father and son (Ken Griffey Jr. and Sr.) played in the same game game...in the Kingdome against Kansas City and Bo Jackson.

I like the Seahawks. I have to go to Redmond/Bellevue for business several times a year, and friends took me to a game last time I was up. Got a nice Seahawks ball cap to wear in Alabama.

I think Marshawn Lynch is my new favorite player ever. That guy just can’t be dragged down!

Once again, the Saints prove they are a dirty team playing for a dirty coach. Sean Payton should be banned from the league. The “Saints” were clearing making head shots on Percy Harvin right from the get-go, and it worked - they took him out with a concussion. Payton is a scumbag.

Another note to Pete Carroll. Challenge when the other team obviously fumbles.

I'm glad the Hawks won, but they've REALLY got to wake the offense up.

Where the hell have they been the last 3 games?

It's great that we have a terrific defense, but you can't keep going 3 and out after your D takes the ball away.

At LEAST they didn't commit as many penalties as they usually do.

Work on that, Pete!

You got a win against a very good team. I hope that SF takes out Carolina tomorrow.

We can beat SF at home. Carolina would be tougher.

Answer: There is little difference. Both eat, crap, and are protected by the federal government.

“..By the way, most cities have roofs on their stadiums. The rule should be that if you are playing in Jan., the teams with the roofs get the games.”

Today it was 45F in Seattle which is about average for January which is far better than -30F recently where you really need a covered stadium.

My wife and I joke that Sean Payton looks like Lee Harvey Oswald in a tennis visor.

Agree. Dirty coach. He seems to have learned nothing from the "bounty" scandal.

Lots of head-hunting.
