I just feel like our offense will keep giving the ball back to Wilson and he will end up making some big plays.
We’ve played 2 mediocre games on offense and manage to win because of the defense. Football is a game that sometimes involves luck, the last 4 games since the Cincy game a key player/players on the opposing team have been lost due to injury early in the games. I still think the mindset of this D is what I expected, you have players that were stars in college who have been losing for the last couple of years. This D is hungry and is pissed off, they are on a mission to prove they are for real. I think our O will be better this week, should be a hell of a game. If they win, the so called experts are going to believe.

Re: WFT v Seattle predictions/pregame talk

Nothing wrong with being jaded or holding back on drinking the koolaid.

But even if Steelers are the worst 11-0 team in history, when in recent history do we win that game?

49ers game? Offense basically did nothing. Defense just said no biggy, we got you guys. Another game we would typically never win.

This is the most justified season to be excited to be a fan since Bob's rookie year. We're in 1st place, control our own destiny, and Bruce Fuckface isn't here.

I submit that we enjoy it and roll with it.

That being said and probably revisionist history since we already played the Pittsburgh game, but I think Seattle is our best test. We win this game, and I'm riding this high as Positive Pete until we don't have another game to play.

This. And the reference to Bruce is hilarious.

What's weird is my first thought is this is good news about Alex Smith.
After all if AS' injury was real serious they would have brought in a qb right?

Well, it's a good point. You would think they would at least think about bringing one up from the PS. You don't roll into any NFL game with one able QB.

It's not often we get to drink the December kool-aid, which tastes much different than the pre-season type.

Look hard enough at any win and you can find built in excuses. We don't have to apologize for winning 4 in a row and knocking off an 11-0 team. If that's not enough to get someone on board oh well.

Right, and it isn't like we didn't have adversity of losing players either. Seattle is a tough game, and we may lose but as a whole this team has come together and playing exciting meaningful football with 3 games left in the season. That's an excellent place to be after the past 10-20 years.

Re: WFT v Seattle predictions/pregame talk

Let's hope we come out of the Seattle game without more injuries. Winning this game would be an uphill battle if Alex Smith and Gibson were both 100%; without them, or with a hobbled QB, there's little chance we win this game. The beautiful thing is that the team has put itself in the position to not have to win this game. I really hope they focus on getting healthy for Carolina and Philly, and not risk too much this weekend.

True, but a win would be pretty sweet. Seattle is not unbeatable and it’s great to see us competing in every game now. It’s been since early in the season that we’ve failed to be competitive and even bad NFL teams still have elite athletes. Just being competitive week after week is such a refreshing change. I hope we can continue that through season’s end whatever the outcome so it carries over to next year. The team is ascending - in recent years id be worried we’d choke and lose out the rest of the season. I can’t see this group doing that.

Would love to see Seattle go down. Pete Carroll irritates me. Mad respect for Russell Wilson and DK Metcalf in particular.

Not to mention we are coming off three consecutive road wins at Dallas, at Pittsburgh, and at San Francisco (albeit in Arizona). That's pretty historic right there. I wonder if that has ever happened, or at least since the 1970's.

Back in August I guarantee nobody saw that coming, everyone had those chalked up as losses

Re: WFT v Seattle predictions/pregame talk

Washington has outscored opponents in those four games by 50 points. Yes, 50 points. How is that even possible? Because in the last eight games, Washington ranks third in the NFL, allowing just 133 points for an average of 16.6 points per game — 14.25 points in the previous four.
