I can't get excited about this game because I expect us to lose. Maybe I'll get a nice surprise this coming Sunday, but that's what it'd be, a surprise.

To me, this game feels like it go really well if the offense wakes up.

I feel like the defense has been playing damned good in spurts...they could spin about 4-5 3 and outs in a row; I think that's possible this week, as well. Seattle's OL is kind of banged up right now.

Problem with the offense this week? Playing the best in the world. I expect 14-10 type final.

To me, it's hard to think about this game and what it might look like if we play like we have recently. Historically, running QB's have gashed us.

I think the good guys pull this one out. Remember last year when the Packers kicked our teeth in and the next week we smashed the Ravens by 30. They'll play better.

As always with this team... If we block and get to the QB we have a chance. But no Duane Brown and no true outside pass rushing threat will kill our chances in keeping it up.

2 things in our favor, Seattle traveling tonFlorida last week, now to Texas... And we are coming off a beat down in front of home crowd.

I think our defense will kick ass with the home crowd behind them. Seattle's offense isn't going to be clicking as well as they like. They'll hit us for some big plays, but overall.... it's going to be another grind'em defensive battle. Much like last week.

If our QB & ST doesn't give them any points, it'll be close in the 4th & we'll have a chance to win.

If we reduce our qualification to passes longer than 15 yards, Schaub's number of attempts rank in the top third of the quarterbacks who have played this season.

Their quarterback, Peyton Manning, has thrown fewer passes that traveled longer than 15 yards in the air than Schaub. Manning has thrown 21 to Schaub's 22.
Not trying to hype Matt up, he's not my boy. Just trying to convey the gist of the article, without copying the whole thing. The only glaring negative about Schaub in that article

But Manning has thrown four touchdowns on such passes, and has a passer rating of 130.4 and a QBR of 99.3 on them.
Quote:
He's tied with Titans quarterback Jake Locker with 22 passes thrown that traveled longer than 15 yards. He and Locker are very near each other in passer rating on those passes: Schaub's is 62.9 and Locker's is 62.3.

And when compared with the original graphic, where the Seahawks conceded 55 less points, you get your answer about where the problems are currently situated with this team.

Yep thats why i put that on there, was originally going to put offense and defensive rankings as well but due to MNF they werent current when i made it. Also with Leacher and his awesome punting our D is actually doing pretty good considering opponents offenses dont usually get a very short field
