If I am a Seattle fan, I'm pleased that we won, but I would be dissappointed with the team's performance as a whole, even the defense.
Russell Wilson did not sign a 5 year 67 million dollar contract either.

Matt Schaub shows no leadership, and even less charisma than Gary Kubiak (quite an accomplishment).

Either way, this team desperately lacks leadership (D is a different story)

stats are so baseball...toughness, putting your foot down when the game is on the line, in game adjustments....now that is football. Who cares about the stat line?

And happy to know that even when they are getting the sh*t kicked out of them they can get up off the floor and make the plays that need to be made in a hostile environment.

some stats. Some are very relevant. One must look at all numbers with relation to how much they increase our chance at winning. The pick 6 decreased our chance from about 85% to ~50%.

Russ Wilson's scrambling, etc in crunch time...his leadership...ill take that over schaub all day and twice on sundays.

Yep, only be concerned about the W/L column, becuse after all, the TDs, INTs, dropped passes, missed FGs etc..... don't really matter, they are just stats.

The Seahawks are in the NFC as well as the 9ers, no playoff tie breakers there Doc.

I would expect our defensive ranking to start dropping & be thankful not many offenses are going to abuse us like that with the kind of pressure we put on their QB.

my point is that people dwell on stats as a marker of a good team way too much. The ability to churn nice stats may be nice and all that but throwing for under 200 yards but coming up with big first downs and not throwing a pick6 with the game on the line is the point. Sure, having thrown for 31-of 49, 355 yards looks great statistically. I really don't give a crap about stats.

I'm a little agitated at the moment & I'm being a little knee jerk as well. I did mention that I didn't see much of the game, because the rain took out my satelite. But after watching the highlights...

I'll just say I can understand if Kubiak stands by his guy.

Schaub's not my guy, I've criticized him for years. I've taken to defending him lately because some of the criticism is uncalled for, exaggerated, or unsubstantiated.

But they do need to have a team only meeting & find out who's committed to winning, & who's not.

Matt Ryan threw 5 interceptions and no TD's in last season's game against the Cardinals.

The Falcons won 23-19.

So, yeah, you're right. Scoreboard is truly the only stat that matters in the end.

My Houston Texans are undefeated when leading after 4 quarters. Stats tell part of the story but there are no asterisks for L* (We kicked their ass on the stat line).
