Got roughed up on Denver (played not to lose and it cost them.....stupid coaching) and won on San Fran yesterday.
Note to Coach Fox: Enjoy your vacation and try to figure out why on 3rd and 7 and the game on the line, you run it up the middle when you have Peyton Manning at QB. You go with who got you there you idiot!! WTF was that???
Side , Total and Tease today.

Tony Gonzalas again does not win a playoff game in his career. Seattle hot, their defense is better and their run game is better. Atlanta a paper tiger in my opinion and Seattle battle tested and have beat better teams than this on the road.
I like Seattle's cinderella story to continue, these guys find ways to win...lots of travel I know for the Seahawks. Good cover corners, Lynch is a stud at RB,and Wilson can break some runs on the read option.

I would have played Seattle +3 if not for the Clemmons injury. His replacement, Bruce Irvin (from WVU) is a pass rushing specialist but struggles against the run. In fact while at West Virginia they would routinely take him out of the games in running situations.
I'm a Bruce Irvin fan so I hope he plays well and proves me wrong but it was enough to scare me off of Seattle.
You are so dead on Tony. How many times do we see this situation and teams play not to lose and it costs them a win? Love the play. Thanks!
Fly, Seahawks, fly!
I hear you Tony...and how about after getting burned fuckin' long all day,go into a dime package being they had no timeouts left...that had to be about the worst game management seen in a long while...I had them tease down to 3.5 and that just fucked up my day...anyway lets get them today...BOL
TG...Fox was notorious for that while here at Carolina......no Manning here so u figure he might change with Peyton at QB....throw it, if not there throw it away and punt....same outcome....not like Den run game was carving up balt def.....if I was PM I would have said I had to audible and thrown it
I rarely get pissed and never take losing personally...part of the business, you are going to lose games...but I was flat out pissed off on this one.......but at this level, semi's in diviosnal play, every team playing is fukin good and you DO NOT take your foot off of their throat and you drop the hammer and play balls out to win every play...Denver just didn't do that and they were capable....poorly coached.....I will admit the Ravens played lights out and were WELL COACHED, Flacco stepped up and Tory Smith torched CUMP Bailey all day long....but Denver handed it to them with stupidity.
When you leave the door open and let teams hang around this deep in the platyoffs you are going to lose....
Looks Like ATLANTA is using your approach.............and stepping on the Peddle Tony!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Soko. Choosing to rub it in. Kinda mean.
looks like the travel is affecting seattle more than anticipated mentally and physically. lotta game left though for sure. idk about that call on 4th wouldve been happy with 3
