    As I savor this delicious taste of victory that puts Seattle at 6-5 and strongly fighting for a Wild Card spot, I enjoy taking a dip into the land of the opposing teams and see what they have to say.

    Obviously they are not fans of the Seahawks so their knowledge of our players will be minimal even for big-time NFL teams because it's not possible to know everything. Even if they did know everything, they'll know more about their own teams mistakes and not what Seattle did to win.

    There's always a reason why a team loses; against the Rams it was the inability to stop their defense, against the Bears it was total lack of offense, against the Chargers it was the inability to establish the run and against the Broncos it was poor tackling and defensive schemes... but all of those were factors based on the opposing teams taking advantage.

    Seattle played poorly in those loses because their opponents really stuck it to the Seahawks.

    Yet against the recent games against the Packers and Panthers it was all the mistakes they made that gave Seattle the win... Sure, the Seahawks capitalized on mistakes but they still had to capitalize.

    The Panthers put the football on the ground six times and recovered all six... how insane is that?

    To some degree I get that losses suck and fans want to say that their team played poorly (not because of what your opponent did) which is the reason for the loss... but I guess it really is hard to believe that this shorty-QB and his pedestrian WRs, and no-named defense continue to string together some wins.

    Nice drive to answer.

    Mix of run and pass.

    That's garbage.

    I hope you find a way to watch the game.

    You can watch Rivera go for it on 4th and short with a stupid play.

    So excited for this game.

    The series of "must win games" continues.

    The Cowboys winning kind of hurts because it opens up for another NFC East team to come into the wild card fray.

    Holding the tiebreaker over the Cowboys only helps if they run up to the Wild Card, not if they win their division.

    ATL losing helps along with Chicago winning.

    We need Chicago to win the North so we dont run into any head-to-head bouts for a wild card spot.

    The most shocking thing to me is that Steve Hutchinson raised the 12th Man flag not to long ago and wasn't boo'd...

    Not sure how I feel about that. If he gets in (and he probably will) but he ended up playing 68 games for the Hawks vs. 89 games for the Vikings; 5 vs. 6 years (and a single year in Tenn).

    I find his logic on taking the deal very suspect but also complete crap. He felt disrespected (and maybe was tired of living in Walter Jones' shadow) and took the money.

    Just realized I scheduled a birthday party for early in the day because I thought it was going to be a Sunday Night Game...

    Curse you 49ers for sucking!!!

    Cool to hear that the game meets its hype.

    I think that I will wait longer on RDR2 as I want to see what the multi-player is going to be like.

    It looks amazing but I can't commit 60+ hours to another game that I'm still needing to finish.

    I think it says something about a game if it can continue to pull me back for hours on end even though I'm not actually doing anything "new."
