Understanding CHI (Energy)
In Martial Arts - which is what we saw by the time that Lynch run through nine Saints took place, it is an accumulation and concentration of condensed energy.

Seattle worked it, and as momentum built, it took over. As painful as it is, watch the footage of Lynch in slow motion. By the time he got to Porter (who is an all out BALLER) it was like an invisible force field pushing Porter away. Lynch is good but not THAT good.

It has helped ease the pain for me to watch the freakin NFL REPLAY of this monstrosity with my Martial Arts Instructor. He pointed out to me how Seattle just snatched up the Chi (Life Force) and we just couldn't take it back. It actually had very little to do with talent. Gregg Williams needs to see it this way... and ok... maybe get Roman Harper a turbo wheelchair.

Absolutely SPOT ON, Sinner.

Heck we came off a loss at home, as well. Just had NO momentum. Well, if the first quarter can be called momentum, then we had it, but beyond that, it was all CATCH UP.

Did you ever hit somebody and not really mean it? Or run after somebody when you'd rather be taking a nap? That's NO CHI - - - when you can get hurt more than the person you are trying to hurt. That's what was happening through most of the game...

On the other hand, Seattle (who is not very talented, sorry.) HAD IT.

In Chinese Martial Arts it's called Chi. In Korean Martial Arts it's called Ki. However, that is strictly semantics. It is universal and anyone can tap into it. Martial Arts training makes it easier.
What Ki does is take the forceful energy inside your core and bring it out where you can control and use it to your advantage. It requires a lot of focus and mental attitude. Lynch had it.........we didn't. Rep points to you.
