I remember hearing that somewhere.
He's cooking with his own groceries!
...curious about the post game handshake.
2 teams going in different directions. Just a few weeks ago SF was a Super Bowl favorite!
Sea 3 weeks in a row, 3 massive blowouts! Crazy!
Waiting to see if they shake hand
Suck it, haters! Woo!
Help A Better LA bring peace to the South LA community. Are you in?
Me too ...
No offense, Seahawks fans, but Pete hasn't done anything in Seattle, yet. He's put together a few nice seasons, yeah, but he hasn't gone anywhere in the playoffs.
Counting chickens before they hatch...
Once they get home field advantage, they will do something big. But they'll have to wait another year.
Falcons and Packers at home are a different beast than the Cards, Bills, and a reeling SF team.
Fides Quaerens Intellectum
I don't believe anyone said Seattle was going to win the Super Bowl this season, do you?
He hasn't done anything?
He took over a team that had back to back 4 and 5 win seasons.
He took over a team that was riding a 4 game losing streak and was blown out almost every game.
Seahawks fans had NOTHING to cheer about.
Pete comes in and improves the team right away, same shitty talent but he lit a fire under their ass and snuck into the playoffs.
Then all he did was beat one of the hottest teams and alot of people's Super Bowl pick the NO Saints. Shocking everyone!
Now it's year 3, Pete has HIS players out there and they are one of the hottest teams in the league.
They just destroyed the 49ers who, going into the game, have lost 1 game in the previous 2 MONTHS!! DESTROYED!!
With a home win vs STL they will finish 11-5. A far cry from that horrible team that was getting blown out CPC took over.
And he hasn't done anything?
Bill Simmons did, in a manner of speaking. Took a lot of heat for it during the early weeks of the season, now it's looking somewhat possible.
To say PC's "done nothing" is absurd.
I love the West Coast rivalry building between Seattle and SFO. It should make for some interesting seasons ahead.
Now if the Rams would just come home ...
Would be nice to follow the PC process, can't say he hasn't done it his way and successful at that. Not crowning him the Superbowl champion but PC has done some nice work here at Seattle and has developed his team to be a force in many years to come.
PC has the right tools and players plus his new QB and OC are what he needed to get over the top.
Freedom through Vigilance
Did you watch the Seahawks defense last night? They probably have the best back 4 in the league when Browner comes back. Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner are good physical corners and Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas are great safetys. I like the way Russell Wilson plays the game. The guy is smart and can run. His one scramble last night was epic as he dodged and weaved past all kinds of dlinemen. If I was the Falcons, I wouldn't want to play these guys.

I knew they were going to make the playoffs, all my friends hate me today. it was a hard loss for us though. So hard, I'm still drunk and my knee hurts. But I knew PC could do it.
Nobody knows their linebackers but KJ Wright and Bobby Wagner are very good plus ex Trojans Malcom Smith and Michael Morgan are making plays on special teams and as backups. Dline consists of Chris Cleamons, Red Bryant, Mebane and some other players. Their defense is nasty. The only thing this team lacks is big time receivers.
As a long suffering Raiders fan I wish we had a " hasn't done anything" team like Seattle.
I just want to see my Raiders compete. We have 3-4-5 win seasons EVERY year.
AND Pete turns it around in year 1? Is a legit darkhorse Super Bowl threat by year 3?
With Al Davis gone and a real GM in place, I know the team will be competitive again once our full allotment of draft picks are back and bad contracts expire. It's a work in progress but in 2-4 years the Raiders will be back now that a plan is in place.
Until then, it's hard not to root for CPC and the Hawks!
Round 1 possibly @ Washington? I like Seattle! Should be a fun playoffs!
How do you feel about Palmer as the Raiders qb? All things consider, I think he has played well this year for what he has around him.
Sometimes, you just know when the eyes have it.
I became a Raider fan when I was a small child due two things:
1. Just win baby (Stabler, Upshaw, Shell, Dalby, Biletnikov, Branch, Casper, van Eeghen, Long, Alzado, Millen, Hendricks, Martin, Colzie, Tatum, Hayes, Haynes, etc.)
2. Silver and black (hands down -- the coolest color combination in the league)
no mention of Sherman?
It has been a weird trend this year that teams playing back-to-back prime-time games have lost the 2nd game:
