In response to pcmIV's comment:
Rusty the offense was far from perfect, but the secondary was flat out embarrassing. We made a rookie QB with no receivers look like a hall of famer. He only had one game over 200 yards passing up until today. On basically every deep ball except the last one it was just a throw up it for grabs type of throw and we still got burned repeatedly.
As bad as they were, they gave up 24. The offense scored only 23, and left 6+ on the field. How can you not see that? Had the offense scored more points, thereby using MORE clock, how was Seattle going to increase the 24?
THEY COULDN'T! They MAXED OUT AT 24!
Brady had 3, count them THREE bad mistakes, 2 which directly took points OFF the board, and scored 23.
It's f u c k i n g simple math my 3 year old could understand.
It's easy to look at the secondary and blame them, but the fact is everyone knows the secondary isn't good. Sure, if they suddenly play ABOVE what any of us expected...fine. They probably allow 14 or 17. But had Brady not played well BELOW what we all expect, they still win. Easily.
I'm not asking for a miracle, just for Brady to not channel his inner Sanchez, that's all. Had he not done that, they win. The secondary did what they've been doing for 5 years. Brady did something we rarely see, and never expect.
Did you hear? The Seahawks were only giving up 14 a game.
