    WRONG!!! As we've all learned earlier this season, we can't take the NFC West lightly anymore. Despite not scoring above 20 points in four out of five games, Seattle is 3-2 because of an incredible defense that stifled teams like the Cowboys, Packers, and Panthers. They are a legit top 5 defense this year. And unlike our stadium, theirs is pretty loud! I'm worried! :(

    check into the local coma ward...have them induce one and tell the nurse to wake you up in a couple of weeks...it will be all over by then. No worries....AND...they give you cake to eat when you come out of it!

    Should we destroy the StoolHawks? Yes. Will we? Prolly. Do they scare me? No. Do Banjoes scare me? Only in Tennessee.

    I could see the Pats having a lot of success on the ground again. The Seahawks use 320-pound Red Bryant as a defensive end on early downs and then 245-pound Bruce Irvin as a situational pass rusher. Get into a passing situation, convert that, and then go no-huddle and pound the ball at Irvin repeatedly. Seems easy enough in theory.

    Matt Cassel led the Pats in a game in Seattle in which they committed zero false starts (and, in fact, zero penalties of any kind).

    If Seattle's O moves the ball and puts up points on the Patriots D, we should all start to be concerned. The Seahawks D and crowd are equalizers. Take them out of the game and the Patriots should be OK.

    We should take any game seriously. Other teams come to play, too, and actually have decent players. I've been saying for weeks that Seattle won't be an easy game. But there's certainly no reason to think that we shouldn't be able to prevail if we play well. The Seahawks don't have much of an offense, and our offense has too many weapons for anyone to stop if we play well.

    I'm really interested in seeing that excellent secondary match up vs our guys.

    Anyone thinking this game will be easy has not watched the Seahawks much. Their defense is fantastic. It's the type of defense we've struggled against too.

    Next week's game will arguably be our toughest of the year.

    This isn't a usual pushover Seahawks team, going that far on the road in that kind of stadium is a tremendous challenge. I just hope Hernandez is available.

    Actually, if I'm not mistaken, Brady has never played in Seattle, is that correct? Same with San Fran. Only two stadiums he's never played in, because of the injury. Pretty crazy.

    I'd say it would be an easy win if it were in Foxboro, but Seattle's home field crowd is truly the 12th man.

    Granted the Seahawks defense is pretty good but I'm wondering what the folks in Seattle are saying about next week's visiting offense.

    Their fan base is die hard, rabid and fanatical. They'll be blowing the windows out of their stadium screaming for our blood. It's going to be the most hostile and intense environment the Patriots play in this season, against a very stingy defense.

    I think we'll be okay as long as we stick to the short passes and run the ball. We should be good taking the 10 yard slants all day. Wouldn't expect anything deep and down the sidelines.

    We also have more weapons than they've had to face all year. We could really use Hernandez for this game, but only if he were healthy.

    I'm pretty sure they'll be about to put a pretty effective four man rush on us.
    Going to need to find some success with the running game.

    This is going to be an intense football game. Can't wait.
    Hope it's injury free.

    THey're a good team.

    No doubt. THey got the result against GB
    no doubt.

    But GB got beat by colts last night and Dallas have been horrendous after week 1.

    I expect us to play a tough team that will cause us worries, but I do think we have the weapons to beat them.
    A win next week sets this team up really well. I expect us to prevail.

    I doubt anyone thinks this, especially playing in Seattle. We've been saying this for weeks, we all know its going to be a toughie.

    But the same way we sit here and worry about their defense, I'm pretty sure they're not looking forward to playing Brady and this offense, especially if Hernandez is back.

    The Seahawks D have looked brilliant! But I trust TFB! Hopefully this D can keep the Seahawks O low scoring!

    Key issue will be the health of the OL and the TE's. OL took a beating yesterday, we need those guys to get healthy fast this week.

    Two initial thoughts after looking at Pro-Football Reference statistics for the Seahawks:

    1) The Seahawks offense does not score points and they turn it over - both of which are very encouraging. The Seahawks' offense is anemic: 17 points per game, 163 ypg passing and their QB rating is 75.2. They are a pretty good rushing team at 140 ypg and Marshawn Lynch is averaging over 105 per game. The Seahawks' offense is exactly the kind that the Patriots' defense can handle.

    2) The Seahawks defensive numbers are incredible. Nobody has gained 300 yards total yet this season and they haven't given up more than 80 rushing yards in a game yet. This defense, if for real, is the second coming of the 2000 Baltimore Ravens. Their competition includes the Packers, the Cowboys and the Panthers, each of which can hang numbers on the board.

    They have yet to see the Patriots, however. We can be sure that Pete Carroll and his coaching staff are looking at a lot of film from the Cardinals game. Still, I do not see the Patriots scoring fewer than 20 on these guys and allowing rookie Russell Wilson to dictate the tempo of this game.

    Really hoping that the loud Seattle crowd gets to witness the return of Aaron Hernandez going into Beast Mode along with the other monsters who line up on the same side of the ball as TFB.

    Its always the sign of a good thread when the OP starts off with a wild strawman argument to get the ball rolling!

    Its the stupid, misplaced arrogance of the football fan that thinks, that just because the offense puts up big points that it automatically becomes repeatable and 'easy'.

    It is not.

    To be honest, it is this simple minded arrogance, and detachment from reality, that leads the absurd over-reactions when things don't play out the way people like the OP wish them to.

    This is going to be a very tough game, against a team (like the Cardinals) that knows how to drag a game down into the gutter - to make it a dog fight rather than a shootout.

    Lets not assume that the Patriots are going to march into a very hostile, loud environment and destroy the Seahawks.

    The Cardinals tape is about two generations ago. Hopefully, they will look at it.

    That was also a 2-10 Seahawks team that was already hopeless, and we eeked out a 24-21 win.

    It is rarely if ever an easy place to play.

    Of course Denver's defense was also one of the best before this week, especially against the run.

    The only time I saw Seattle play was against the Pack. What I remember from that game was Rodger's stubborn insistence on throwing the ball deep, although that is what their personnel favors. They also refused to rush the ball in the first have which is what I thought put them in the hole in the first place.

    It will be interesting to see how they match up against a two TE offense that works the middle of the field consistently. I think having Ahern would be big for this game.

    I'm not too worried about the O. They might not dominate but I think they will still score points. The game will be on the D and i'll be disappointed if they allow Wilson or whoever is starting to keep it close.

    Even before the season started and Seattle coming off a losing season, I had this as one of the 5 toughest games.
