    Their young quarterback hurts teams when he is running. His scrambling ability gives teams fits (see the Texans game). I have confidence that we will gameplan accordingly on defense. (Their system is similiar to the Texans, except they don't have Andre Johnson).

    They can be run on allowing 109 yds/g at a 4.0 per carry clip. Now I know Kansas City gave up slightly more rushing yardage and a higher per yard carry, but they ran a 3-4 and Seattle runs a 4-3. It has been noted that our interior lineman have had trouble getting to the second level. I think this game we be a change for the better. It is easier to move a stationary object sitting right in front of you than having to hit a moving object.

    Consistent short passing game (their cornerbacks are very effective when trying to go deep on them), slow down Marshawn Lynch (because I don't think we will stop him) and no turnovers. 19-16 TitanUp.

    I am being optimistic, but very realistic.

    Thoughts?

    No chance we beat them. As long as Bilbo Loggains calls the same nauseatingly predictable game we'd be lucky to score 10 points. Besides Wilson will run for 100+ yards against us.

    I believe we have personnel to match them but our coaching staff is just far too inferior.

    I agree, but they might surprise us.

    As long as Fitz doesn't believe he is Peyton and takes what they give us I think we will be fine.

    We'll have to run the ball to win. No way we're going to be able to pass on that secondary. If last game is any indication of how we will run the ball this game could be ugly.

    Also, they may be 4-3 in theory, but they show a lot of 3-4 looks. Lots of guys moving around.

    You're optimistic. We have a slim chance to win, but I'll give it a 10% chance.

    With Locker, yes, we would have a very good chance of beating the Seahawks.

    With Fitzpatrick, no, we do not have a very good chance of beating the Seahawks.

    This is definitely a winnable game, but I certainly wouldn't bet on it.

    HeadonaSwivel is right about Loggains though. He's really the key to us having a chance in this one. We pretty much know the defense is going to do their job. But Bilbo has to come with something other than his usual lame @$$ "football offense 101" set of plays. That defense is too good and too talented. We've got to get creative in this one.
