The Seahawks defense is one of the greatest of all time, as it has completely dominated the NFL for the last five years, including this year.

    Is Rhode Island really far enough away from Colorado for you to safely post something like this?

    • I may in fact get a little spittle on me coming from Denver

      • Denverite

        Hmph.

        I happen to agree that over a five year period from 2012 through half of 2016, the Seahawks defense has been better than the Broncos in the aggregate.

        Last year, the Broncos were better. This year, it’s pretty much a toss-up. Broncos are allowing significantly fewer yards per game and NFL rating against, a bit fewer points per game and yards per play, they have two more sacks in one less game, and they same number of picks but in one less game. Seattle has a better yards per drive (IIRC) and they have a bit lower (better) DVOA (Broncos are slightly ahead in VOA though, meaning all of Seattle’s advantage comes from schedule adjustments).

        But again, if you told me in 2012 that you could have Seattle’s defensive performance or the Bronco’s for the next five years, it’s Seattle and not close.

          Before anyone calls me on the brain fart, yes I realize the fact that Seattle’s played one fewer game makes the sack/pick totals points in their favor.

    Cue sobfest about how the Seahawks get away with 20 million defensive penalties per game…

    • Juicy_Joel

      Goodell is rigging it so the Seahawks win for many plausible and convincing reasons.

  • Linnaeus

    Would be nice for them to do a little better on the offensive side.

    • tsam

      Honestly, when they aren’t playing in their own division, they do pretty well. Seems like teams that know them do the best job of containing their attack. For some reason, the FUCKING RAMS just have their damn number. No matter how bad they are, they always win one of their meetings. It’s infuriating.

      • The Seahawks have a good shot at going 13-2-1, with 2 losses to the fucking Rams.

        • Denverite

          Yes, I too think that Seattle will be victorious when they make the trip to New England in two weeks.

          • tsam

            You watch–they’ll end up stomping their guts out and then lose to the fucking Bucs or something. That’s been their MO for years. They can win a game and still leave me wanting to strangle them.

            Supe preview?
            Also: chickens, counting.

              I was being sarcastic. I think Brady is going to light them up. But I hope I’m wrong!

    • McAllen

      But that would mean we wouldn’t get hilarious 6-6 ties!

      • tsam

        THAT WAS NOT HILARIOUS YOU SHUT UP

        • Linnaeus

          It was very much not hilarious.

        • keta

          You’re right. 257 yards and 11 first downs in five quarters isn’t hilarious. It’s anemic.

          • McAllen

            Well, yes, I admit I probably wouldn’t have found it as funny had I actually had to sit through the game.

            • It was pretty funny listening to on the radio while driving, though.

            • efgoldman

              I admit I probably wouldn’t have found it as funny had I actually had to sit through the game.

              Those of you who don’t get NFL Network will be crushed and devastated, I’m sure, that you can’t see the historically great tilt tomorrow night between the Titans and Jaguars.

              • ColBatGuano

                The ads for that game make me laugh. It’s like trying to drum up enthusiasm for all you can eat meatloaf night.

                • Linnaeus

                  All you can eat meatloaf is way better than that game.

        • McAllen

          If it’s any consolation, the Cardinals’ DONK field goal attempt was way funnier than the Seahawks’ wide-left one.

          • liberalrob

            It was also funny listening to Cris Collinsworth butcher the rules about leaping.

            I felt kind of bad for Catanzaro and Hauschka, though. Both had bad days. Bad bad days.

            • erick

              I think there might be something about the turf there. Hauschka missed 3 there last year and in this game the first one he made he had horrible footing and took a huge divot. Slipping on his plant foot could explain such a bad shank on the last one.

              Hausch only has to kick there once a year Catanzaro has notably had issues more than once.

              They have that weird tray that they roll out to grow the grass in so makes you wonder is it like a real grass field or like a bunch of rolled out sod that is loose and doesn’t get really set in.

              • erick

                Should add that Catanzaro’s miss was likely affected by Wagner getting a clean jump again and Sherman coming free on the edge. In his press conference today Sherman said that Arizona had a predictable cadence on their kicks, maybe Arians should worry about that more than changing the rules.

    And my Falcons still somehow managed to almost beat them.

    One of these years it’s going to be our year.

      And my Falcons still somehow managed to almost beat them.

      Looking forward to Falcons-Green Bay this Sunday. No rooting interest, but probably a lot of points. The over/under is 52.5.
