    I know you've played 2 ****ty ass teams the last 2 weeks but I still love the fact that you pound them into submission. 3 scores up and running fake punts just oozes determination.

    As for Giants, Pats and Ravens fans....

    If the Patriots did that you know we would be blasted but because the Seahawks did it its fine. Hypocrisy at its finest.

    the funny thing is the seahawks haven't really run up the score

    they took their starters out in the 3rd quarter against arizona and whilst yes they ran on a fake punt (which was a field audible), they only scored 3 points in the 4th quarter and there were a number of backups in again.

    They could have put 70 points up on Arizona easily

    Flynn came in to play the 4th and was throwing bombs, that's pure mockery whatever way you look at it.

    They took out a load of starters, if the pats did that and still went at it I'd have no problem..

    Whoa chill out man I was just saying it how I saw it, like the 1st half against the 9ers, Brady just seemed off form to me, I know he threw 4 TDs against what was an underwhelming Texans side but he didn't appear the inspirational Brady I've grown accustomed to watching over the years.

    On Sunday in the 2nd half, that was the Brady that got me interested in the NFL years ago. That grit, determination and refusal to lie down even with that much of a deficit. Shame Arrington missed that tackle, but for the team to let the score run up like that before the offense finally arrived, we deserved to get beat. Hopefully a wake-up call.

    Your memory is obviously slightly hazy here, after Flynn came in Seattle ran 26 rushing plays and Flynn dropped back to pass 9 times. Here are those 9 dropbacks:

    2-10-ARI 10
    (8:21) (Shotgun) 15-M.Flynn pass incomplete short middle to 18-S.Rice (58-D.Washington).
    3-10-ARI 10
    (8:15) 15-M.Flynn pass short left to 81-G.Tate pushed ob at ARI 10 for no gain (94-S.Acho).
    3-6-ARI 14
    (2:15) (Shotgun) 15-M.Flynn pass incomplete short left to 89-D.Baldwin.
    [b]1-10[b]-SEA 23
    (13:38) 15-M.Flynn pass short right to 85-A.McCoy to SEA 40 for 17 yards (79-D.Carter; 58-D.Washington) [54-Q.Groves].
    2-26-SEA 24
    (12:21) (Shotgun) 15-M.Flynn pass short left to 81-G.Tate to SEA 30 for 6 yards (28-G.Toler).
    3-20-SEA 30
    (11:35) (Shotgun) 15-M.Flynn pass deep middle to 18-S.Rice to SEA 48 for 18 yards (49-R.Johnson). PENALTY on ARI-49-R.Johnson, Unnecessary Roughness, 15 yards, enforced at SEA 48.
    2-8-ARI 35
    (10:06) (Shotgun) 15-M.Flynn pass incomplete short right to 89-D.Baldwin. PENALTY on ARI-58-D.Washington, Unsportsmanlike Conduct, 15 yards, enforced at ARI 35.
    2-21-ARI 31
    (8:56) 15-M.Flynn pass incomplete deep right to 82-E.Moore. PENALTY on SEA-82-E.Moore, Offensive Pass Interference, 10 yards, enforced at ARI 31 - No Play.
    4-23-ARI 33
    (7:21) (Shotgun) 15-M.Flynn pass incomplete deep left to 11-J.Kearse [90-D.Dockett].
    3-6-ARI 30
    (2:46) 15-M.Flynn pass short left to 89-D.Baldwin pushed ob at ARI 3 for 27 yards (24-A.Wilson).



    They only attempted 3 deep passes in those 35 plays, on third and 20, second and 21 and 4th and 23. 5 of the 9 attempts were on 3rd or 4th down, the remainder were all 8+ yards to go for the first down. There's running up the score and there's just keeping the ball, what are they supposed to do, give it back and say "hey try and score against us"? Of course not! In fact, in the second half the Seahawks didn't send an extra pass rusher ONCE.
    27 of Flynn's 68 passing yards came on that very last play, Baldwin caught the ball 5 yards beyond the line of scrimmage and carried it a further 22, what's he supposed to do, catch the ball then slide? The Cardinals simply couldn't defend. 5 complete passes in 35 plays after Wilson came out after one drive in the second half.

    I can't remember which game it was or what wide out it was but one got absolutely leveled and could have been potentially hurt. If your throwing passes like that in the 4th Q up by more than 3 scores with your backup QB in your doing something a bit naughty, regardless of the scoring breakdown and the 'stats'.

    Seattle take their starters out, against the Colts Brady is in the whole game even though you're winning comfortably.
    Seahawks get blamed for running it up whereas the Patriots are praised for their offensive prowess.
    Everyone knows ESPN/most NFL analysts have an East Coast Bias + Cowboys obsession.

    Why should the Hawks get blamed for it, many points were defensive turnovers they can't just punt it away. Also same with the Patriots, the game against the colts same defensive turnovers and such. Running up the score is complete bullcrap anyway.

    Rice got levelled on an 18 yard pass on 3rd and 20 that only converted as a result of the penalty.

    That's one I noted above:
    3-20-SEA 30
    (11:35) (Shotgun) 15-M.Flynn pass deep middle to 18-S.Rice to SEA 48 for 18 yards (49-R.Johnson). PENALTY on ARI-49-R.Johnson, Unnecessary Roughness, 15 yards, enforced at SEA 48.


    Once again, are they supposed to just give the ball back to Arizona in that situation?

    There's throwing deep passes and there's simply trying to keep the ball, Rice was levelled because Flynn's pass lead him straight into Adrian Wilson's path.

    I've lost track of what we're even debating here??

    ..EDIT: never mind, reread. Running up the score... I don't really know why we're debating it, you just said it yourself leading a WR into a route that can cause an injury when up by 51 is being a bit silly. Whether you class that as 'running the score up' or not I don't know. Like I said I loved the brutality behind it, shows that a teams hungry. Case closed? lol.

    I'd like to see the Redskins go through. RG3 has had a cracking rookie season, so in my mind, deserves to get to the playoffs.
    I'm a Ravens fan, & unfortunately, I think the Giants will beat us tomorrow. The Cowboys have the Saints this weekend, so they could slip up. It's definitely going to go down to week 17.

    I think that the Redskins and Cowboys definitely have "should win" games. However, the Cowboys have a great record at screwing things up at the last possible minute, so I wouldn't be so sure about their win.

    I wouldn't be so sure about a Giants win either, the Ravens are a quality team who simply haven't been playing up to their potential. Lets see if Joey "I'm an elite QB" Flacco can pull off a surprise victory.
