Re: Did the Seahawks peak against the Saints?

Saints must start fast and score as early as possible.
If you look at the Seattle/Saints game (if you can stomach it) we scored in the 2nd quarter and their defense started emotionally falling apart - looking at each other and complaining. Fired up or no, their team plays on emotion and without that emotion they can go flat.

Score first or early, get a lead and take their fans out of the game and quiet them. If they do that then it can definitely be a dog fight against one heck of a team. If we come in and start super slow like we did in the first matchup, then everyone can eat Gumbo and get drunk and talk about the draft coming up in a few months.

We MUST start fast, score and take their fans, the stadium and fans out of the equation if we want a chance to win mono y mono.

Re: Did the Seahawks peak against the Saints?

I don't see us starting fast.. we normally go thru a feeling out process but I'm all for it.

1) Drew must play better and not hold the ball as long as he did last game. Whether he has to check down or run like Wilson (if given time and space) + that will make them second guess drew.

2) Win the turnover battle and cut down penalty's. I know we had alot of holding penalty's that game and we had some drive killing turnovers/penalties vs eagles. They have to earn the win we can't give it to them.

3) Hopefully we call good plays. Cant go 3 and out so much.. And throw away the earplugs definitely didn't help any.

I'm hoping we walk out of there with a win. Who dat!

Re: Did the Seahawks peak against the Saints?

Per Pete Presser today Percy Harvin will most likely play. From a Seahawks fans perspective:

What happened if the Saints Win:
Got Heavy Prassure from front four and didn't need to bring a heavy dose of blitz. I though Ryan might blitz more but with secondary concerns, I don't think he will.

Running game getting 3.5 yards per carry mixed in with a healthy dose of play action pass. Drew has shown he can dink and dunk all the way to the end zone with the occasional fly pattern to keep the defense honest. I highly doubt Breeze with throw it much at Sherman and will target Thurmond and Maxwell more. No interceptions period.

Seahawks Victory:
Make the Saints play in space. Use Harvin to minimize pressure in the box and allow receivers to operate. This would put the Saints in a pick your poison, Lynch or wide outs.

Stop the Run make Breeze one dimensional without putting eight in a box. I have a feeling the Hawks will stuff the box and see if Breeze can throw or not. If the Hawks can pin their ears back they will make Drew's life miserable.

That's how I see this game...

Re: Did the Seahawks peak against the Saints?

Here's what I posted on 12-2-2013...

The Saints are gonna be in the playoffs. What happens then is anybody's guess. Anybody can get hot. They didn't make that phrase, "any given Sunday" on a whim.

With that being said, they have a hard time in Seattle, but if/when that game is played, they will begin the game at 0-0.

Re: Did the Seahawks peak against the Saints?

IMO, the pressure is all on their side of the ball.

Everyone expects them to win and for the Saints to lose.
