    Just curious but what are you referring to?

    Wow, wouldn't expect such emotion either way about the Seahawks from Bears fans.

    Aside from the casual fan answer of Richard Sherman, which Seattle players are classless?

    I think they're referring to an incident where the Seahawks' punt coverage guy lit up our punt returner with a helmet to helmet shot and then celebrated excessively instead of showing any kind of remorse for such a dangerous maneuver.

    That kind of pissed me off. Not a huge deal, but pretty classless.


    With that said, I'm not ready to rank Seattle any where near the 1980's Pistons, etc., nor do I hold any resentment against Pete Carroll.

    DaSuperfan pretty much hit it. They didn't have a real hard time moving the ball early on, just stalled on them hurting themselves more than anything.

    I saw that hit and fully expect Lockette to get a fine for it.

    I suppose I would agree Chicago moved the ball a bit better than I figured they would. But it's also true Seattle had 4 TDs on the board before you guys crossed the 50 for the 2nd time.

    And?

    What's your point? Are you trying to kill other fans' optimism? To what end? What's your goal here?

    No, be optimistic all you want. I was just trying to be fair and factual and have an unemotional back & forth on one of the subjective points that I didn't totally agree with.

    ...while ignoring that one of Seattle's TDs was a 12 yard drive?

    And while ignoring that one of Seattle's drives was aided by multiple dumb penalties?

    Ok. Thanks.

    I hope somebody points out that that throw to Jeffery was thrown short, which caused Jeffery to ease up and allowed the defender to make the play.
    Wouldn't it be great if we booted the 200 lawyers from the House and Senate and replaced them with economists? That way, we'd stop harming our economy with laws that would apply to the politicians, too.

    Ok, fair enough guys. It's just a pre-season game that none of us will really care too much about as soon as the regular season starts. Have a good season.

    Same here. I know it's just preseason, we shouldn't read too much into it, and all the usual disclaimers that go with that. However, through all 3 games, it sure looks a hell of a lot like last year's team. Offense looks like it could be dominant again, but not dominant enough to offset the complete horse**** defense & special teams more than about 1/2 of the time. I'm sensing another a high-scoring shootout filled 8-8 season.

    I re-watched that play and it appeared that the ball wasn't under-thrown because Jeffery didn't slow down or break stride. The CB just had good timing to jar the ball loose from Jeffery's hands.

    I concur. This team is good enough to win some games but we're not going to unseat GB so long as Rodgers is around.
