Re: Official game 12 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


On paper this should be an easy win. But the unforced errors the Pats are making plus the endless trail of injuries makes it pretty tough to predict.

Re: Official game 12 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


Seattle has been hurt most of the season. The bad thing for this game is that Seattle has its players back AND they played on Thanksgiving so they have extra rest and time to prepared for the Patriots. This is not an easy win no longer. The fact the Patriots are playing them there makes it more difficult. Plus you know Holgrem wants to beat the Patriots bad.

I wouldn't sweat this one guys. I've had to watch all our losses. Yeah, we got alot of guys back, but we look as crappy as we did before we got 'em back. Our defense is worthless, our O can't convert a third down if it mean't their lives, and special teams has been the only semi-spotlight. I suspect you'll win by double digits.

Just found out today, I'm actually going to be watching this a few hundred miles south in Salem, OR.  Nice whirlwind tour Monday am meeting, a few of hours work and the redeye home via Atlanta. My wife calls it my "vacation".  

In any event Pats should win this.  Are they staying out west this time, it sure didn't help vs SD?

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. —

The New England Patriots are preparing for their second weeklong stay on the West Coast this season.

They'll leave Friday afternoon for Seattle where they'll play the Seahawks on Sunday. Then they'll spend the next few days practicing at San Jose State for their game the following Sunday at Oakland

A troop of blind, quadriplegic Campfire Girls could convert 3rd downs against our defense these days.

If Moss can get somewhere close to what he was a week before, though, the Pats should be able to win a shoot-out.

Re: Official game 12 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Seahawks center Chris Spencer will miss the rest of the season with a herniated disk in his back, but he is hoping he can avoid surgery by resting.

Spencer became the 11th Seattle player on injured reserve in this lost season on Wednesday. Converted guard Steve Vallos will make his second career start on Sunday for Seattle (2-10) against New England (7-5).

Spencer said he kept playing through a bulging disk that began bothering him in training camp and caused him to miss all but the final preseason game. When quarterback Matt Hasselbeck had a bulging disk early this season, he sat out five games to rest it. But Seattle's first-round draft choice in 2005 took anti-inflammatory injections to start the first 11 games.

Then the pain and numbness down his legs become too much before last week's loss at Dallas.

Re: Official game 12 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


On the plus side, I'll be in the stands on Sunday cheering on the Pats. It'll be the first Pats game I've seen in person in a long time.

I don't know what to make of this game. I've seen the Seahawks a lot this season and they are just not a good team. It's partially because of injuries, partially because of serious decline on the defensive side of the ball, and maybe partially because of what essentially became a lame duck status for Holmgren - when you're 1-3, 1-4, 1-5 and you know your coach is leaving no matter what after the season, it's tough to get motivated. That said, I just have this uncomfortable feeling that this is a trap game for some reason.

Re: Official game 12 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


I don't see it as a trap game. I see it as the 1st of 4 Playoff games for the Pats.

If Patriots history is any indication, the calendar reflects that better days are ahead.

Over his first eight seasons, the Patriots compiled a December won-loss percentage of .824 under Belichick, taking 28 of the 34 games they’ve played.

Recent history is even better.

The Patriots have won 14 of their past 15 games in the month dating back to a 23-7 win over the New York Jets in the Meadowlands on Dec. 26, 2004.

Re: Official game 12 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


If Junior is signed by then, hopefully he's on the sideline pumping up the troops - and playing the week after. I really do think that if the front 7 can get the kind of pressure they used to get, that the secondary can hold its own.

Re: Official game 12 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


Seymour is off the injury list, so yea, they have that going for them.

Posted: 12/5/2008 11:32 AM

Re: Official game 12 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


Junior will be with the team on Sunday, though unlikely to play. Still, just his presence on the sidelines will help. Moss is really PO'd at himself so I expect him to be on fire. They could light it up.

Posted: 12/5/2008 12:33 PM

Re: Official game 12 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


It would be a nice week to install a blitz package. No wait the Patriots are playing a bad team. They will get pressure. if they were playing a good or playoff team then I'd say different.

I still say the Patriots are done, no playoffs.

Re: Official game 12 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


Seau is signed, Thomas goes on IR.  I think the Pats make the playoffs at 11-5 and last WC seed.  They probably play the Jets.  ...I like them in that one too.

The Ravens have way too tough a time of it.  DC, Pittsburgh and Dallas@ Dallas.

Hasselbeck didn't practice Thursday or Friday and will be listed as "Doubtful" for Sunday.

I was under the impression that he was getting healthier so assumed he'd be playing. Needless to say, if he doesn't play that increases the Pat's chances significantly.

Re: Official game 13 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


 Times, they are a changin!!!!!

 Where is everybody?????

 Three and a half hours before game time, and this site is like a ghost town!! It didn't used to be like this!!

 Is it all because the Pats the aren't having a good year????

 Are we becoming fair-weather fans????

 DL, where are you????

Re: Official game 13 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


A lot of the band wagoners have moved on, apparently.

That said, I'm kind of at a loss as to what to say about this team. You never know who'll show up on Sunday. The tough D and explosive O? The team that somehow finds a way to scrape out a win in a close game? The team that can't seal the deal? Or the team that takes a Remington shotgun to its own pedal extremities 2 or 3 times per quarter and gets blown out in embarrassing fashion?

Unless the Pats win today and the Jets lose today, this place will really empty out as the season is all but over at that point.

Re: Official game 13 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


I just want to see them be physical today. Go back to expressing their will on the opponent.

Re: Official game 13 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


As expected, the Colts beat the Bungles so the wildcard situation gets a little tougher for the Pats. Too bad the Lions lost - they're getting close to a win though. Unfortunately, they play the Colts next week which means Indy will likely be 10-4 heading into the last 2 weeks. If the Lions can only win one game this year, let it be next week.

Re: Official game 13 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


Guyton has had some rough games lately. on that first drive he looked lost. I will give him a pass for the plays where he lined up outside, he has not been asked to do that before. But when he lined up inside he is taking some poor angles, has poor body position engaging blockers and struggles in coverage.

Kinda of a classic case of hitting that rookie wall. He has shown that he can play early in the season, just has to work to get back to where he was.

Interesting that they started Wilhite over O'Neal. Not that it mattered.

The Pats defense is nowhere to be found.

The Defense is there, they're just getting beat. Pretty sad showing against a 2-10 team.

Re: Official game 13 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


Just from the game center and Reiss' blog it's looking grim. Seau and Colvin thrown into the trenches. Back-ups (Spann, Wilhite) playing a lot more than expected. I don't know if they're in worse shape than BB let on or if this is his way to find players who want to play defense.

And here comes another 3-and-out by the O. There's no excuse for that against the 3rd worst defense in the league.

BB and Pioli have their work cut out for them this summer.

why dont they use their tight ends more?? defense is horrible

Re: Official game 13 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


everybody is hurt they lose this game and they are done for the playoffs

Posted: 12/7/2008 6:36 PM

Re: Official game 13 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


every other team beats us with they're tight ends

Re: Official game 13 thread. Patriots/Seahawks 


Our ILBs struggle with coverage. Bruschi is slow and Mayo/Guyton are rookies. This aint rocket science.
