Just proves what I've been trying to impress on Seattle fans for a long time now - the last time they played a meaningful game was Nov. 27 against the Giants - a game they almost lost ....three times, thanks to one Jay Feely. Their december and jan. games have been against poor opposition (yes that includes Indy, which rested everybody). Prior to the Giants, they played a meaningful game against Dallas on Oct 23. Almost lost that one too, but made a good defensive play to win at the end.

Two meaningful contests against stout opposition in the last three months? <Puts on Paul Mcguire voice> Are you kidding me?

The only thing I give Seattle credit for (as a team) this year is that they consistently beat the teams that they should've beaten. Hence the 13-3 record. Unfortunately, that matters nada at the present time.

Ramseyfan, Sundra has quoted you already, and I will too, because you make some good points about the Seahawks, but I like other people have mentioned in this thread wonder how the stats would be different if the roles were reversed. Let's say the Skins would have played the Seahawks schedule this year and vice versa. Everyone would probably be talking about Portis having 20+ TDs and 1800+ yards. I think the Seahawks have played smart football this year, but I am not convinced they are the dominant team that everyone in the media makes them out to be. If the Skins can match the intensity of the Seahawks early and Bunell gets off to a better start, this game may turn out to be a surprise to alot of people . I think the Skins are doing everything right in terms of preperation this week to have a good game. They have practiced in the rain and are going out early to get adjusted to the time change. I am very optimistic about their chances.

Questionidn't we defeat Seattle the last four times we met? Wasn't Hasselbeck and Springs the stars of the team when we beat them? Of course they were, which is why the pressure is on them to beat us. Quite frankly, Mike Holmgren can not out coach Joe Gibbs and Greg Williams. Just too much experience. We win this one decisively by at least 10 points. Check out the scores when we played teams the second time this year. No game under 7 points.
I wonder how much springs knows about the offense and defense that seattle has and currenlty runs? People made a big deal about Peirce and the Giants, I wonder if are getting an advantage out of that ...

Good point. Springs was able to snuff out a couple of offensive plays right away during our last game with the seahawks and he foiled them. He knows their personnel and their tendencies well since the roster has changed very little from the time he was there. I'm sure Springs has been giving the coaches and players valuable nuggets.
