    Man I would have loved to make the trip over for this game. I've visited a few European countries, but haven't made it over to the UK yet.

    Every London game over the last couple years has been a blow-out. Interested to see if the Hawks will be better adjusted being over there 24 hours longer than the Raiders.

    Compared to last week, I see a bit of a let down by the Hawks. Defense plays better against a much lesser opposing offense, but our offense doesn't look quite as good as it did last week. Hawks win 23-20.

    Marshawn is my favorite Seahawk of all time... mixed emotions going against him. I want him to have a good game, but want Carr and the rest of the team to look like ass compared to us.

    Dang, I think you got it backwards! Rockstar games are probably some of the only games I would ever feel comfortable preordering these days. Rockstar, Naughty Dog & CD Projekt Red are really it off the top of my head.

    I totally understand, though, especially with the backlog of games. I haven’t touched probably 50% of my Steam library.

    I haven’t preordered yet, prolly will buy it next Friday ($ day).

    Y'all gonna be playing RDR2? I can't wait for a follow-up (or I guess prequel) to the original, one of my all-time favorite games. All Rockstar Games studios have been functioning as a single team to make the game and it seems like they're going all-out with the immersion, details, etc.

    I've been biding my time replaying the first one and more recently playing the new Spider-Man game. Apparently my PC is going to be left in the dust for the remainder of 2018.

    Mandalorian lore and everything that comes with it is cool as shit.

    I'm glad the first live-action TV series is going to be about Manadalore. The list of directors lined up and having Favreua write/exec. produce gives me some high hopes.

    @sammyc521 said in Game #5 Rams (4-0) vs Seahawks (2-2):

    One thing I can't tell about the Rams is are they good because they execute so well or do they have play-makers?

    Either way, that offense is really good and was very happy to see the Seahawks put up 31 against that defense.

    I think their defense is a little hyped up right now based on how the defenses have played Seattle in the past.

    I think they both execute so well and they have the play-makers to be explosive. Goff has been putting the ball where he needs to, going through progressions and hitting receivers in between zones and out of breaks. Gurley is crazy good and that fly sweep was pretty much an explosive play every time except for the TFL by Frank Clark. Their WR core is really good and they have to be smart guys. Cooks has played in complex offenses between NO, NE and now in LA under McVay. Kupp is a smart player and, though he drops some passes, is almost always in the right spot at the right time.

    I'm definitely happy with the offensive output, the 3rd down conversion rate and the red zone efficiency. I'm with you though, sammy, I think that defense is a little overhyped or possibly just underperforming right now.

    Dang, I dig it.

    Wonder if that's going to be Sabine Wren or another Mandalorian we've been introduced to. Possibly a certain one that survived a certain Sarlacc.

    This is exactly the type of game I was hoping we would see - this young "retooling" Hawks team playing the top team in the NFL (IMO) down to the wire. I loved what the players had to say after the game. Pretty much every o-lineman was fired up about how they handled Suh, Donald and the rest of that front 7. A lot of "I don't think they're looking forward to playing us again." Hope that ends up being true.

    Offense played great. Really felt like we might end up on the top side of this game, very similar to our win at home against the Steelers a couple years ago. Once again, though, our offense has to burn another TO because we can't get to the line and set up and/or we can't get the play in in-time to get the play off. This has been driving me absolutely nuts over the last few games. We keep blowing TOs on things that are football 101. Then the penalties, then eventually the loss. The ending sequence(s) don't bother me enough to not give credit where credit is due. The o-line killed it. Carson and Davis ran HARD. Lockett once again had a big day and Russ was the Terminator in PA.

    Defense needs to tighten up on its tackling and its assignments, but that Rams offense is no joke. McVay is the real deal as far as offensive minds go. Goff has been executing in that offense and has regularly been making crazy accurate throws. Props to them, Goff does not look like the QB last year that was throwing ducks and throwing to wide open spaces for incompletions under pressure. We need to figure out how to get more pressure on the QB, though, I don't think that improved much over the last week. Then again, the Cowboys and Rams both have fantastic o-lines.

    This is the type of game that can hopefully spring us to more confident and better play. I've had tempered expectations this entire year and that will continue. However, I want to see some young guys show some potential, develop and get us set up to launch in 2019/2020. Some of these guys have been flashing. Carson, Moore, Tre Flowers, T2 among others like Dissly who we'll have to wait to see next year.

    Honestly I think the entire first season is skip-worthy. Season 2 is finally where the characters start getting fleshed out and you get a couple interesting story lines. The canon that gets added from seasons 3 and on is awesome.
