Hello all!

Obviously, I'm a SeaHawks fan. But There are two teams in the AFC that I find myself following or rooting for. The first is the Texans (Waaay classier than Dallas fans), the second is the team the Texans have beaten the last two years in the playoffs.

I am very much looking forward to the game on Sunday, and I have to say, regardless of what happened in Baltimore, this is a game that has me a bit worried.

Our All-Pro left tackle is on injured reserve with a return designation, and our guard play has been shaky at best. That didn't prove too detrimental against the Jags, but the Texans aren't the Jags. I expect to see TE Zach Miller helping quite a bit with JJ Watt, so you shouldn't see him releasing into the secondary very often.

I also would guess that the 'Hawks are going to try and run the ball a lot. You won't see a whole lot of 5 to 7 step drops from our QB on Sunday. I'm guessing you'll see more 3 step drops, play action, and roll outs. If not, Wilson is going to get hit.

On the other side, I have a pretty good feeling about our defense that is getting healthier going against your banged up offense. And Schaub is a statue, so that works in our favor.

But all in all, I expect a close game with the result hinging on turnovers and a few big plays where they can be had. Cheers to a good and injury free game on Sunday!

Welcome to the board, I'm sure there will be some good football discussion leading up to the game Sunday. Everyone here is pretty pissed off at our team right now. The Texans better come out as angry as the fans are right now.

I expect most Texans fans to watch the game, see your QB perform compared to ours, and want to jump off their balconies. Fortunately here in Houston many homes are single story, and very few are more than two, so it will be mostly just sprained ankles and nicks and bruises.

Welcome ...

Welcome to the board, Seahawks Fan. I hope we have a good game (that means we blow y'all out) and the Texans can get back on track.

The Seahawks have an awesome secondary, but I think we match up well in several key areas. Hopefully there are no injuries and the good guys win.

Welcome! I respect the Seahawks a great deal. Are you sure Russell Okung is "All Pro"? I believe he's a pro bowler, and that's a great accomplishment.. But All Pro is a whole different tamale.

If the game comes down to turnovers, I think you guys have the advantage. To be honest, our only turnovers of the season come in the form of INT's. We have been pretty good about not fumbling thus far. **knock on wood**

I think you will have a hard time running the ball against us. But, Russell is a savvy QB who can throw bullets down the field.

Seahawks are a much better home team, so we have that going for us.

I think it will be a good, hard fought game.. With the Texans coming out on top.

No. Absolutely not. Never ever. Russell Wilson is the absolute truth.

Peyton Manning set the rookie record for TD passes with 26 while throwing 28 INTS that same year. Russell Wilson tied his record while only throwing 10 INTS, and only 2 over the second half of the season.

Russell Wilson was second all time for rookie passer rating at 100.00 (RGIII was like 100.04 or something)

Russell Wilson owns the rookie record for consecutive passes completed at 17

Wilson is currently the 3rd highest rated passer in the NFL at 109.6

He's got wheels, and he can run. But he's a passer first.

Matt Schaub is Matt Hasselbeck2.0

Honestly, I think David Carr could have been really good. I also think getting sacked that many times while QBing for an expansion team can be detrimental for a QB.

Also, the Schaub comparison to Hasselbeck wasn't a knock. We loves us some Matt Hasselbeck up here. Hasselbeck was the epitome of "goodness" and in his prime had some really great moments. But he did not have that "it" that makes great quarterbacks.

Plus Russell is making about 500k this season.

I'm pretty glad a get to catch all the Seahawks games, as they're the local team here. The amount of talent that team has is sickening.

I'm glad that the Texans are going into this one pissed off as heck - because if we put a performance in like against the Ravens, it would be uggggly.

Side question - as Texas has seen a heck of a lot of homerism regarding Vince Young - what is the reception for Jake Locker going to be in Seattle when you guys play the tacks this year? Must be a few Husky alumnus looking to go for that one.

I doubt it's a big deal. If we had a competent QB in Houston, the VY thing wouldn't have been so bad. You didn't here Cowboy fans clamoring for Vince (even though they're more Longhorn fans than Houston is).

We chose to stick with a QB that had not done crap..... we gave him an extra $8M to stay... he had not won the heart of the fans. We passed on Vince & a year later we trade two seconds for A back-up.

I know its tough to remember, but the Packers weren't exactly setting the world on fire before they came to Reliant last year either. They hadn't scored over 30 points before they played the Texans even against an all-time bad defense of New Orleans.

I hope we win, but I'm feeling a little bit like the the Little Giants right now about to play the Cowboys. But there is always that one time! (Movie reference)

Even against a terrible team like the Jags, Wilson only completed 14 of 21 passes for 202 yards but with four touchdowns. The Seahawks scored a total of six touchdowns in this one and they were all offensive. I wonder how many yards Schaub would had to throw before getting 4 passing TDs? 500?:chef:

To piggyback on this, from Chase Stuart yesterday:
Chase Stuart as @fbgchase


Russell Wilson leads the NFL in air yards on his completed passes, at 9.83 per. Geno Smith is second at 9.13.

It's subject to interpretation as to whether this is a product of the offense, Schaub's physical limitations, or a combination of both, but it remains that Wilson is a potent downfield passer.

He's thrown for 4 TDs three times and 5 TDs once. The 5 TD game was last year vs. the Jaguars. Texans won 43-37, in part because Schaub also threw 2 INTs. He threw 4 TDs on 290 yards once, and the other two were 350+. Most of the time he throws for about 250 yards and 1-2 TDs. And to be fair, he did throw a TD pass this week as well.

I didn't go check how many 4TD games the SB winning QBs had.

If our defense would set him up the way the Seahawks defense set Wilson up, I'm sure Matt's stats would be less gaudy. But when he's having to travel 70 yards to get into Field goal range, he's going to put up some numbers.

Lechler has been turning the field position all three games this season. The offense has been starting with much better field position and they have done relatively little with it. The defense has not done much more with it, to be honest. Field position is an argument you aren't going to win with Lechler pinning the other team inside the 20 consistently.

Okay, how about this: Brice McCain for Richard Sherman straight up? :truck:

I think we would have to include a 4th or 5th rounder to make that palatable for Seattle. :trapstar:

Hey, Sherman was originally a 5th round pick. The SeaHawks front office has been uncannily good at drafting in the mid/late rounds. The whole defense is built on afterthoughts when you think about it. Only Earl Thomas is a first round pick. Irvin is too, but he's a pure pass rusher, not an every down starter.

Sherman - 5th round
Browner - CFL Castoff
Chancellor - 5th round
Bobby Wagner - 2nd round
KJ Wright - 4th round
Malcom Smith - 6th round
Mebane - 3rd round
Red Bryant - 4th round
Clemmons - Was a throw in from philly along with the draft pick they sent us for Daryl Tapp

Crazy stuff, really.

Slightly off-topic, but go Sounders. :tiphat:

Brakos my friend (and also off-topic), knowing you live in the Pacific Northwest (your hitchhiking trek not withstanding), what the hell are the Sounders?? My brother-in-law played baseball (minor league) for the Nashville Sounders, BWTH???

The Sounders are a Soccer (aka: sissy football aka: futbol aka: European flopology) team.

What's a CFL Castoff? It's not unusual for CFL guys to try their luck in the NFL. I still remember Vernon Perry :thumbup Remember Joe Kapp? :boxing: :)

What I meant was that he was cut from the Broncos and had to toil away in the CFL before he got another shot.

Doug Flutie??? :thinking: Warren Moon.....

Vernon Perry????
Nice pull!!! He won a playoff game for the Oilers almost singlehandedly by himself given the fact Earl and Dante couldn't go, with 4 picks and a blocked kick (returned for a TD IIRC).

He got 2 interceptions in the 1977 Grey Cup (stapled shoes) game :hurrah: IIRC, it was the year before Warren Moon joined the Eskimos. I watched a replay of that game a couple of years ago & Warren Moon wasn't there... didn't even see him on the sidelines.

Hello all!

Obviously, I'm a SeaHawks fan. But There are two teams in the AFC that I find myself following or rooting for. The first is the Texans (Waaay classier than Dallas fans), the second is the team the Texans have beaten the last two years in the playoffs.

I am very much looking forward to the game on Sunday, and I have to say, regardless of what happened in Baltimore, this is a game that has me a bit worried.

Our All-Pro left tackle is on injured reserve with a return designation, and our guard play has been shaky at best. That didn't prove too detrimental against the Jags, but the Texans aren't the Jags. I expect to see TE Zach Miller helping quite a bit with JJ Watt, so you shouldn't see him releasing into the secondary very often.

I also would guess that the 'Hawks are going to try and run the ball a lot. You won't see a whole lot of 5 to 7 step drops from our QB on Sunday. I'm guessing you'll see more 3 step drops, play action, and roll outs. If not, Wilson is going to get hit.

On the other side, I have a pretty good feeling about our defense that is getting healthier going against your banged up offense. And Schaub is a statue, so that works in our favor.

But all in all, I expect a close game with the result hinging on turnovers and a few big plays where they can be had. Cheers to a good and injury free game on Sunday!

:slapfight:

Welcome. And you should be worried. I am not sold on the Seahawks being as good as they are being touted just yet. You scored 12 points against the Panthers who lost to the Bills, killed the Jags in your stadium who are the NFL's worst team and beat the 49ers who have been looking like frauds so far this season by getting shellacked by the Hawks and the Colts.

You lost Okung. No Irvin.

You are in our house and the Texans are mad. Foster is getting healthy, AJ is getting healthy, Duane Brown is getting healthy and the crowd is going to be going nuts.

You may be able to pull out a win if you buckle your chinstrap tight. But I think the Texans will show you why they collected 22 wins over the past 2 seasons.

Here is to a good injury free game. Cheers.

Seattle Seahawks fans set stadium noise record Sunday

The fan group attempting to set a Guinness World Records mark for loudest stadium says it has established a record during Sunday night's game between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers.

The group, called Volume 12, announced on its Facebook page it had set the mark late in the first quarter. The decibel reading taken during a sack of San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the first quarter following a one hour weather delay was 131.9 decibels.

The previous record for "loudest crowd roar at a sports stadium," was 131.76 decibels, set in 2011 in Turkey at the Ali Sami Yen Sport Complex Turk Telekom Arena during a soccer match between Galatasaray SC and Fenerbahce.

Many times when the Texans fall behind at home, it becomes eerily quite and all you can hear is the 12th Man snoring.:chef:
