    Flew all the way back to West coast last Sunday night, now all the way back across country today. Really shortens the week for them.




    Plus their DC was interviewing in SD on Thurs.  Ouch.

    Nighty night Carroll and Sherman.  Take that mickey mouse crap back to Seattle after tomorrow.

    Atlanta 27, Seattle 17

     



    Your hate for Carroll and Sherman has blinded you, you're not being objective. 



    No, I am objective. I admit, part of it will be my enjoyment of not seeing an arrogant team led by those two morons, not win, but Atlanta is still the superior team. They have the superior QB, passing options and they're at home after a week of rest.

    Meanwhile, Seattle barely got by a QB on one leg who likes to run a lot.

    Keep it up, kids.  I'd suggest not following the media.



    Matt Ryan has a 22 QBR in the post-season, Sherman and Browner match up well against White and Jones, the Falcons don't have much of a running game, The Falcons don't have much of a rush defense, the Falcons have a good pass defense, but not enough to stop the Seahawks. 

    Seattle stuggled with a one legged QB, but what happened when Kurt Cousins came in? Didn't even get a first round pick. 




    True, but if you think Atlanta is going to fold after a couple years of playoff disappointment, then we disagree. Not only are they due, they could very well end up in the SB. 

    Adding Samuel to the CB group was a great move for them, they have nice LBs and a nice front line.

    It's not a coincidence that they had a great record and are a #1 seed. Seattle is this hilarious little media darling with god awful unis led by a loud mouthed cheerleader.

    Sorry, not buying it. I don't do gimmicks.  Atlanta is as steady as she goes, well balanced, well coached, has experience, and the loss of Clemmons for Seattle is big.

    Tony Gonzalez with a big day. He wants a ring. Oh yes he does.



    Would you like to make a bet, my good man? 



    Sure.

     



    What do you want to bet? If the Seahawks win you have to start a thread in appreciation of  Babe, Mighty and TCal. Also, you have to use Richard Sherman as your avatar. 

    What do you want? 



    That's fine.  I can't upload avatars. The board doesn't allow anyone new to upload avatars. 

    But, I'll take the bet. I am assuming this is straight up and no spread since you seem ultra confident Seattle walks into Atlanta and wins.

    You have to start a thread proclaiming my utter genius with football knowledge. hehe

     



    Deal, but since you can't upload avatars. Sherman has to be in your appreciation thread as well. =D

    Ok even though I don't appreciate his selfish behavior and look at me type primadonna style, but ok.

    May I ask why you or anyone else is so enamored with the Seattle Seahawks and that punk?

    It's fascinating.

     



    Enamored? God no, none of that, I don't hate them like I hate most teams, but I'm not enamored with them. Plus, they're a pretty good team. Sure the Pats gave them the game when we faced them, but it took a lot of heart to pull off a comeback against a Tom Brady/Belichick led team. I think they have the talent to make it, but it might fall short against San Francisco. 

     

    Sherman, on the other hand, I think is a tool. But he's a talented tool and he's not a bad guy so I don't mind him running his mouth. I also didn't mind TO either for the same reasons. If Sherman we're a spousal abuser, a rapist, a drunk driver, assault with a deadly weapon guy I'd hate him. But running your mouth is okay by me, I do it too, it takes your opponent out of the game. KG does it a lot.

    Re: Seahawks travel effect?

    I don't think back to back trips t the E coast will cause any problems for the team.

    1) Their players are young. Their bodies, probably don't really feel the effects of that trip.

    2) This is playoffs. Adrenalin levels are probably elevated relative to when they have to make that trip during reg season.

    If they fall flat, it probably is not because of the travel. Probably more because of being ill-prepared.

    The travel is tough.  Back-to-back East Coast is asking a lot.  That's the only reason I'm taking the Falcons.  27-20.



    I hope you didn't make a bet on this, that would be a dumb move. 

     

     

    The only thing the Falcons have over the Seahawks is the QB, and the Falcons QB is...well, see the post above. 




    Ha Ha!  I don't bet on sports.  I farm for a living.  I gamble every year on the weather and commodity prices!  That's plenty of risk for me.  I hope you're right though.  I'm rooting for Seattle to meet NE in the SB.  Hope Nate Silver is right!




    What do you grow? Corporate farm or are you on your own? I always find farmers interesting with what they have to deal with. Regardless, thanks for your work so the rest f us get to eat stuff. hehe




    I own a 2200 acre family farm with my father.  Been in our family for 50+ years.  We are located in Central Washington's "Columbia Basin".  Our ground is all irrigated, so we produce potatoes, wheat, sweet corn, grain corn, and alfalpha hay.  The irrigation is funrished by a series of canals feeding south from Grand Coulee Dam. known as the "Columbia Basin Irrigation Project."  It's pretty intersting how this area, which gather's very little rainfall was developed as some of the nation's most reliable and productive farm ground due to the canal system and some of the counrty's cheapest electricity, due to the hydroelectric power plants on the nearby Columbia River.  If you're bored sometime and want to learn something, look it up!  It's a great life out here and I'm obviously one of the few Patriot fans that you will find in this part of the country (thanks to former Wazzu great Drew Bledsoe!)  Thanks for your interest and sorry for boring everyone who found this off-topic post a waste of time!  Go Pats!

    Good points.  The youth of the Seahawks will help ease the travel burden.

    Yeah, I agree with this.  There are many other teams much easier to hate than Seattle.  2 of them are playing right now (Denver & Balt).

    The early game is a tough time slot for Seattle.  It will be 10 am to them.  It will be interesting to see if they come out flat.

    Last year Pats had 2 back to back games on West coast, they spent the whole week out there to avoid both back and forth trips...

    Yeah, Might have been smart for Seattle to do that too.  I guess I can see the benefit of both strategies with this young Seattle team.

    Rusty, I am with you on the hatred element. The seahawks irritate the hell out of me. Especailly Carroll, but I think they pull this one out. Seattle matches up well against the Falcons. They have a very physical secondary and I think they are gonna come out swinging hard and often. The Falcons receivers are gonna be looking over their shoulders. And with ryan's post season woes, this could be a long day for the falcons.

    No, no. That's cool.  I am a big supporter of family farms and think it's interesting how farmers pull off what they do, especially behind the 8 ball so much with the weather the way it is.

     



    Thanks Man!  Truthfully, the weather typically doesn't have a huge imact on us since we are fully irrigated, although extreme heat at certain times can certainly have an impact.  The dry-landers in the midwest are the ones who are really at the mercy of Mother Nature year in and year out.

    I don't like Sherman either but would love it if he was on our team! By the way, did you happen to watch the 42-13 beat down that Seattle layed on the 49ers??! That's when I really began to take notice of the Seahawks. The best scenario for NE may be for the Falcolns to some how squeak by to the Super Bowl. I sort of want to see a SEA-SF rematch but this may not be the best opponent for the Pats. I'm not sure I understand the dislike for Pete Carrol either. One hell of a leader and a great coach!!!

    You're crazy.  Do you really think BB would put up with a guy like that making it about him? No way on earth that guy is Patriot material. Absolutely not.

    The guy runs his mouth from morning til night. He starts fights before games and is completely unprofessional, looking to start fights in victory after games.

    It's like saying "I want Joey Porter to be a Patriot". No thanks.

    Yeah, saw the Seattle/SF game, but I don't trust Carroll. It's just like him to peak to soon and get his team so amped too early, that it's only a matter of time before that rug comes out from under them.

     



    trust me , if Bill was given the opportunity to pick up a player like Sherman he would jump at it. This is an ALL-Pro caliber player. Joey Porter has way more history of being a loud mouth than Sherman. I think you're hatred is mostly based on the confrontation with Brady Which was VERY annoying.

    The travel is tough.  Back-to-back East Coast is asking a lot.  That's the only reason I'm taking the Falcons.  27-20.



    I hope you didn't make a bet on this, that would be a dumb move. 

     

     

    The only thing the Falcons have over the Seahawks is the QB, and the Falcons QB is...well, see the post above. 




    Sorry Man, gotta call you out here.  Seattle in danger of being blown out at end of 1st qtr.  Hope they turn it around, but it ain't lookin' good.  10 am PST start not good for them.

    Flew all the way back to West coast last Sunday night, now all the way back across country today. Really shortens the week for them.




    Plus their DC was interviewing in SD on Thurs.  Ouch.

    Nighty night Carroll and Sherman.  Take that mickey mouse crap back to Seattle after tomorrow.

    Atlanta 27, Seattle 17

     



    Your hate for Carroll and Sherman has blinded you, you're not being objective. 



    No, I am objective. I admit, part of it will be my enjoyment of not seeing an arrogant team led by those two morons, not win, but Atlanta is still the superior team. They have the superior QB, passing options and they're at home after a week of rest.

    Meanwhile, Seattle barely got by a QB on one leg who likes to run a lot.

    Keep it up, kids.  I'd suggest not following the media.



    Rusty, I am with you on the hatred element. The seahawks irritate the hell out of me. Especailly Carroll, but I think they pull this one out. Seattle matches up well against the Falcons. They have a very physical secondary and I think they are gonna come out swinging hard and often. The Falcons receivers are gonna be looking over their shoulders. And with ryan's post season woes, this could be a long day for the falcons.




    We'll see. I hear you about the matchup element, but I just can't see Atlanta blowing this one at home.   They are under pressure, but I also think they are a very talented team. I don't even like Atlanta based teams, but you have a VERY hungry, veteran Falcon club who want to atone. Wekk off, rested, Seattle tired, etc. 

    That's why they play the games.

    I am still flummoxed why people attach themselves to the media favorites like Denver, Seattle, et al. Next year it will be 2 other teams, one from each conference that they do it with.

    Pete Carroll is essentially Rex Ryan.



     Okay, you are the man. Me bad. lol. Wow, they are getting it handed to them. Where the hell are the Seahawks?

    These guys travel on chartered planes, stay in first class hotels, so I'm not buying the travel excuses...not nearly as big a factor as the old days when they traveled on buses...and stay in motels...
