    Re: Seahawks Will Be A Great Test...

    The NFL is an any given Sunday league and Seattle does have a good defense, but we are talking about a team that went 7-9 last year even with a top 10 D.  Wilson is still pretty dam raw and their offense still looks pretty bad.  In addtion while they have a good pass rush it is worth noting that their sack total is a bit inflated because of the GB game and honestly they haven't exactly played a murderer's row of offenses (even GB is down this year on O).  In their other games they only averaged 2 sacks and they will have trouble subbing in pass rush specialists like Irvin if we can run the no huddle effectively.  Hell they wouldn't even have a winning record if the replacement refs didn't make such a terrible call at the end of the GB game.  This is to say if the Pats play their game and execute at a high level I find it hard to believe they don't win this game.  In fact they should win comfortably if they do.

    Key to winning the game is to stop Marshawn Lynch--period--if Pats stop Lynch and force the rookie QB who is 5 feet 11, to throw, we win by 2 scores----and Seattle hasn't seen what's coming this week with our up tempo offense--I've been watching NFL for 45 years and couldn't believe how FAST TB was running the Offense-----made Mannings hurry up look slow---good luck Seattle?

    [/QUOTE]


    I concur with your key is stopping Lynch. I am sure that is what BB is stressing ..taking away their best option. Moreover the key with Lynch is sure-tackling.. he doesnt go downwith the shoulder block tackle  that previous Pats D backs did. I think this years d is for the most part a better tackling team ( with the Pitta TD an exception).

    More on the sure tackling note ..is Hightower playing?

    We may see some screen plays due to their aggressive defense, but we just need to be patient and take what the defense gives us.  They can't take away all our weapons.  I think we can run against any team.  We have a much better running attack than Green Bay and a much better passing attack than Carolina, so pick your poison.  BB will have defense ready, and will try to dictate how their offense will have to play.  Barring major turnovers, etc. we should win by two TD.

    Then, why would you say "it should be intersting to see how OUR D rises to the occasion"?

    Explain the comment. You call me a liar because you've been called out for an embarrassing statement? A little odd. I've given you two chances to explain your statement.

    Just who are you fearful of on their offense?

    [/QUOTE]


    Ahhh, he's fearful of our D making Wilson look like Joe Montana, duh.

    I tend to agree with you. If McD is able to adjust quickly and take what they give us....I think we're good to go.  We'll find out soon enough if they can stop both the run and passing game at the same time.

    [QUOTE]

    I have New England at #2 and Seattle at #12.  Seattle has a great home field advantage, primarily because the NFL's other 31 teams all have to schlep thousands of miles out there and it's an exhausting trip across three time zones for most teams.  Primarily because of the long trip, my latest numbers give Seattle a miniscule 0.9 point advantage next week. 

    Both teams have moderately interesting games coming up in week 7, but it's probably not much of a trap game situation for either team.  New England is playing the Jets, who are rapidly becoming longer and longer longshots to get the last wild card slot, but it's always nice to take care of division games just in case.   Given the Jets' injury problems, tonight's game with Houston could knock the Jets down badly enough that the Patriots can concentrate on the Seahawks.  Seattle is playing the Green Bay Packers in week 7, a nice tough team.  Because Seattle has nearly zero hope of winning the NFC West no matter how hard they try, beating the Packers isn't anything that special.

    [/QUOTE]

    If no one else has corrected you, it is surprising that you aren't aware that Seattle already played GB in probably the most notorious game of the season.

    Since Seattle moved to this Stadium, they have .650 winning percentage. Got to take crowd out of game. Heard good analysis on TV. Nothing kills a crowd like sustained drives. In other words 1st Downs. Crowd gets tired and frustrated. Good drives, and Finish them. Discipline, and Patience. Take what Defense is giving you, and by all means NO Turnovers. To me this is a Big Test for Pats Offense. Do they have the Patience?

    Still think this is going down to wire, with Pats winning. Pats are one of the Best Roadteams in the NFL, since BB has been here he knows that you need to know all the situations on the Road, and because of this, Coaching will be the difference.

    Turnovers...who wins this wins the game.

    that's where the Patriots have an edge over Seattle. They're at -1 while Patriots are at +10

    On my list of homefield advantages over the past 3 years, weighted more toward 2011, Seattle is #4 in the NFL.  Seattle has continued the trend in 2012.  They've been horrid on the road so far this year.  New England is #20 on this list, which means that they're an ok road team.

    The New England hurryup should work pretty well against Seattle's youthful back seven.  Expect Tom Brady to abandon his yelling of random words such as "Omaha, Omaha" and "Orange, Orange, Orange".  Instead we'll get an array of hand signals such as Brady pointing toward his head with his index fingers and making a circular crazy motion. 

    Edelman's return could be useful.  The Seahawks should have the height and length to cover Gronkowski, Hernandez and Lloyd relatively well.  However, they don't have a small, aggressive, quick slot corner to cover Welker.  And so they can't cover Edelman either.  If the sushi-eaters have to deal with both Welker and Edelman on the same play, that's even more trouble for them.  Which one gets doubled up?   I'd occasionally try them both on the field at the same time.   Keeping the wideouts fresh for the fourth quarter has its advantages.

    Everybody is expecting play action.  It's hard to run or pass against Seattle period, so you might as well try both at the same time.  I suppose that putting Hernandez on the field increases the possibilities for New England running the ball.  However, look what New England just did the past two weeks without him!  Daniel Fells is the Patriots' secret weapon, a second blocking tight end who subs in for Hernandez.

    If ever a game screams RUN the Football be patient, keep 3rd downs manageable, its this game. I will be very curious how McDaniels Game Plans this.

    [/QUOTE]


    Seattle is what, giving an average of 78 yrds on the ground?  Not sure that will be the plan.

    Tom will test the waters and then go up tempo, no huddle. to keep  which ever defensive package is working on the field.  They masterfully  kept Von Miller off the field for 29 snaps last week by doing this.

    My guess is Welker will be the key.

    Looking forward to seeing how aggressive the seahawks' secondary, pass rush, and linebackers will be.  Will be interested to see if they can handle both the Patriot passing game and run game.  Hopefully, the OL, TEs and RBs are ready to help protect brady

    Seahwks have played:

    Cardinals

    Cowboys

    Packers

    Rams

    Panthers

     

    The only offense that is formidable is the Packers and they are all pass.

    This is the perfect game for balance on offense and even a bit more running. It is very possible the PAtriots will bust out vs. these guys.

    If the past is to be used as a gauge, it seems many times when the Pats went up against a pretty good defense, they prevailed handily.  The difference, as the Broncos defense said, the speed of the Pats O is a lot different when faced in person than looking at it on film.  Denver hasn't remotely come close to playing such an offense and Herny is back in the line-up!!!  What do the Seahawks focus against?  The run or the pass?  Either way, BB and the O will take what they are given.

    I just dont like when we face teams that do Press Coverage. Thats why running might open up the Pass. Ugly Football, but patience is important.

    [/QUOTE]


    you don't like it because the patriots passing game is shut down? Well, if the Seahawks are successful at getting to brady in a hurry, and bumping the receivers on the line to disrupt timeing, and can cover them long enough for an OL or LB get to Brady - then, the Patriots are gonna have to be effective running the ball, screens (if they're overly aggressive), and play action - to open the passing game. 


    Up tempo game might be helpful?


    If Patriots can score points early...and lets say get 2 TDs up by middle of second quarter....would be sweet.
