Three rushing touchdowns by Wilson, 2.5 sacks by Clemons, a pick-six by Thomas, and 11.3 yds/att for Lynch. Add it up, and you get a crushing 50-17 win in which the only real blemish was Hauschka getting blocked on a point-after try.
Right now I can't even begin to put into words how much I'm looking forward to the game next week against the 49ers. Feel free to discuss how awesome this team is playing right now in the comments below.
Run up the score, why not? That is how you put your foot on a teams throat. Like softy said today, call us punks, bullies, cheaters, call us what you want, I love it baby! No mercy for the weak! Go Hawks!
This is starting to feel more and more like a special season for the Hawks! They have a running game that rivals the 2005 squad in production, albeit with a different style to say the least. They have a more dynamic group of playmakers at wide receiver than they did in 05. A more sure-handed tight end for those red zone occasions (don't get me started on Jeramy Stevens), and most importantly a defense loaded with playmakers and back end talent. In my opinion we are a little bit of help on the o-line away from being positively dominant for years to come. At the rate Carrol and Shneider are going on draft day, those issues should be fixed shortly. My question for my fellow 12th man, is this the year we've been waiting for, or are we still a few pieces short of being a contender? I must say, Next week should be a true litmus test this team to see how far they've come. That said, win or lose they're starting tomake a believer out of this fan. Go Hawks!
Two huge blowouts in a row. It seems like these Seahawks are starting to figure stuff out. More specifically, the team has figured out how to use Russell Wilson and to maximize his talents. Most of all, Bevel is learning how to just get out of his way. The option play that Wilson runs seems to confound opposing defenses. Both the Bills and the Cards had decent defensive units and the Hawks just tore them up.
The defense allowed a fair amount of short passes, but didn't let the Bills into the end zone. Great game.
The next game, against the 49ers, will be the electric kool-aid acid test. Speaking of Kool-Aid, I've long since been imbibing in the Carroll / Schneider kool-aid.
The offense has a nice stroke these days, and let's give credit to the injured and underappreciated offensive
line. They are playing over their heads and out of their minds, a result of teamwork, good coaching, and the kind of men that make them take it to another level- Russel Wilson and Marshawn Lynch.
@MikeRoddy Definitely. The offensive line is finally getting a feel for how to block when Wilson scrambles (that led to a lot of holding penalties and the like earlier in the season), and today they held Mario Williams to zero sacks and one quarterback hit (the Bills as a team had a total of two sacks and three QB hits). Wilson's ability to evade pressure had a lot to do with that, but that's still a pretty good day at the office for the o-line.
@hawkfaninoklahoma Nope, I just had to run out to the grocery store after the Seahawks game. I hear having food in the cupboard is useful if you want to cook dinner.
didn't get to watch game so i am guessing for the most part things went our way. great win can't wait to see the 9'ers get the arses kicked tonight. looks like the D did well considering you have browner,tru and thurmond out.
