Seattle looks like they got their game plan from Denver's Super Bowl game last year.

They may call this one the "turnover bowl" if it keeps up this way.

I stand corrected, and am happy to be wrong. GB has played well. Rogers seems much better than last week. Hawks are going down.

Should be 24-0 rather than 16-0.

Nothing like being the #1 seed at home to make you complacent

Looks the Rodger's "is he healthy or not" stuff during the week got the Seahawks rope-a-doped.


Updated: Seattle up.. I don't believe my eyes.

Unbelievable. The Pack snatched a tie defeat from the jaws of victory.

Can't find a smiley face to express my feelings on the outcome of this game so these will have to do for now.

However, they both made it exciting and what a come back.

I didn't understand/thought it strange that the GB defender just slid to the ground rather than trying to gain yardage after that last interception and the talking heads are questioning it too.

That and the GB guy not being able to catch a ball that is right between his hands on that on-side kick and the ball actually hits him in the head!

On one hand I wanted the Packers to win because I know too many Seahawks fans who annoy me and that whole "12th Man" (ripped off from Texas A&M) and living to just get loud bugs me... but on the other hand I think (or thought) Seattle had a better chance to beat the Evil Empire (Patriots), especially with Rodgers so gimpy. That gimp hurt the Packers a lot, as I think that took away a dimension of their offense in the red zone that forced them to kick five FGs. That is the way you survive FIVE turnovers -- make sure most of them are FGs at worst, not TDs.

That all said, between the twin miracles of the recovered onside kick after a Packer on the "hands team" had it go through his hands and clank him in the helmet and the 2-point conversion on what was basically a "Hail Mary" thrown off the back foot as a floater in the air which is intercepted or knocked down 90% of the time, well.. after that 2-point conversion I basically figured the game was already decided.

And they will have to play a LOT better to beat Darth Belichick, unless the Colts pleasantly surprise me tonight (and you never know -- the Ravens should have beaten the Empire last week.) And as a Texans fan, I hate the Colts. But they aren't the Evil Empire, so now I hold my nose and say "Go Colts!" And I have to hope Sherman has both of his arms back in two weeks, to beat EITHER of these two AFC competitors.

Seahawk fans may be even more insufferable now
