Re: the first sign of the seahawkalypse
there was a ridley run for 3 yards in there, too
typical law of averages says that this one should have been a TD.
it appears they always make the 'right call' on the next drive only to have it sniffed out by the defense.
i think while mcdaniel draws some stuff up nicely, that ever since the cassell season, the book is out on him. everyone has caught up to his tendencies.

If the Patriots passed 7 times for gains from their own 30 to the Seahawks 7, then ran the ball and were stuffed 3 times, people would be *****ing and moaning.
The one good point you made regardless is the FG. You need points on the board there. But you're also thinking about putting the game away for good with a TD, no? You have 15 minutes left in the game. A field goal still means only a 2 score lead with 2 point conversions.
They blew it regardless. But I don't think it was the decision to go exclusively run or pass.
