You get kudos for not pulling a Sherman and blaming the refs. While there is no shame in the outcome more Seahawks fans than not predicted a blow out.

At the Giants, and then Cardinals, Rams at home... Does it get much easier; I think not...

Well if the seedings remain the same they may be playing San Fran in the divisional round.

Probably the one team Seattle does not want to play.

And if San Fran won, the Saints could host the NFCCG in the Superdome.

Falcons, Texans, Vikings would be easier.

Kind of hard to do...

Sherman might point to the penalties as the margin, but the Seahawks' defense had a chance to close out the road win. However, it allowed a 51-yard run by Frank Gore on third-and-1, leading to the game-winning field goal.

There was no penalty on that play.

I didn't. I am sure the win over the Saints got their attention and a lob sided win probably didn't help the Seahawks. Perhaps getting blown out helped the Saints (The Irony), they looked pissed and crisp, total domination.. We have to win two out of three and you guys will probably get the number 2 seed. Your team played with heart after a tough week and showed themselves to be a championship contender IMHO.
Halo and Danno like this.

Honestly I don't know where they found the crispness. Pounded at the Clink on Monday, broken jet delayed the flight home, short week....

Not a recipe for crispness.

Just as odd as how flat they were on Mon night

You might appreciate this. The biggest win in Seahawks history was a game they played in the divisional round against the Miami Dolphins. Their plane touched down in Dallas and then broke down. They were unable to charter a plane for 15 hours and ended up landing in Miami at 6:00 am the day of the game. The Seahawks won the game 27-20. I don't care if the Hawks win the super bowl this year that to me was truly the most amazing win in our franchises history.

One other thing, you might be the fortunate ones to get the number 2 seed. Good chance you will only have to face either Niners or us, we may have to face The Saints and 49ers..

Here is another note able oddity.

The week playing Seattle losing opponents are 2-8-1 and average scoring 17 points. We managed to shed the loss better than the rest.
