What do you mean?
"All most" was Garrett's secret password on his laptop.
Seattle's defense is giving up 27.5 points and 485 yards per game. That doesn't really seem that daunting.
I don't expect them to be an easy opponent by any means, but "Mission Impossible"? I don't see that.
Seattle is one of the best in the NFC. They’re at home, but for obvious reasons the home field advantage is mitigated. This is a great opportunity to win a conference game and build confidence. This is why Jerry hired Big Mike - to win games like this. I can’t wait.
..for me the game is a draw. Though, hoping Dallas can pull it off.
It's doable, but naw.
Seahags have some nice injuries going on, Totally Doable!
Until you wake up sober next to them.
You guys are scaring me.
I disagree. Prescott and Wilson are going to light each others' defenses up. I think this game comes down to which horrible defense makes a game changing play. With Jamal Adams on the other side, I think it ends up being Seattle. We don't have a dynamic playmaker like that on the defensive side of the ball.
We only have a shot if we don’t turnover the ball, because that’s been Seattle’s ace in the hole for so long. Protect the ball, play field possession game and we have a shot.
But...I’m going to call something now. This D-Line is about to do something we’ve been screaming at them to do...and it’s going to completely bite us in the butt. After weeks of not getting after the QB, this coaching staff is going to full send it...and the edge rushers are going to penetrate too deep and keep allowing Russell lanes to squeeze out. In a time when our edge rush should be using patience to contain, they’ll be rushing up field and washed out of the play.
That, and my prediction that we’ll turn the ball over twice and lose the field position battle, is why we’ll lose. 34-23 Hawks.
I think Seattle is the better team and should win that game but hey you never know.
On top of your concern I have a thing about our LBers and safeties.
Injuries and poor tackling from the safeties is a bad combo.
STs came thru for us last week unexpectedly.
Been so long since the Bailey Days since we had that. Maybe CeeDee adds a kick for some points.
I can dream, right.
I'm gonna go with the unexpected...Dallas wins going away.
The Seahawks lost to the 5-win Cardinals last season. They lost to mediocre 9-7 teams. They needed overtime to beat the Bucs at home last year. They're not unbeatable.
We both lit up Atlanta to beat the same team at home. The Seahawks' win was by a wider margin (not surprising if you look at the turnover differential), but still.
Seattle won 38-25 against with the Falcons with what was effectively a massive plus-6 turnover differential (zero giveaways except allowing Atlanta to steal a possession with a successful onside kick... versus 1 INT, 1 fumble recovery, 4 turnover on downs, and 1 turnover on a failed FG).
We overcame what was effectively a nightmare minus-4 turnover differential (zero turnovers by Atlanta except allowing us to steal a possession with a successful onside kick... versus 3 fumble recoveries and 2 turnovers on down). We only gave up 14 more points to the same offense. But considering an entire 23 of their points came on drives that followed a turnover by us, it's shocking that we only allowed 14 more points than Seattle did.
We just need to do what we need to do, and we'll be a handful for any team.
On offense: Protect the ball. Don't let the o-line replacement(s) spiral and torpedo us.
On defense: wake up the pass-rush that was supposed to be good this year. And, hope against hope, have Nolan do the thing that was seemingly the entire basis of his hiring, and take the ball away some.
Is Josh Gordon allowed to play yet?
What’s really better about them though?
They’re just much more sharp than we are.
I don’t see a better roster.
We'll kick their Khyber.
dallas D struggles with elite QBs . Wilson is elite , and Murray is coming up in week 6 , he is looking Elite as well. Offense has to score 35 plus to have a chance,
If we just relax, sling it, spread out the defence, arrive half drunk, and just play sandlot and fast pace, we can beat the Sea Hags because they won't know WTH is going on, just like the Falcons being hypnotized by the onside ball spin - our O needs to do some voodoo spinning too!! Go for every 4th, do fakes every time, air it out downfield with bombs on every single play, onside kick each kickoff....have fun with it!!
Cowboys 49 - Seahags 7
Oh! And the Cowboys sideline needs to set out several 10,000W JBL speakers blaring "Flight of the Valkyries" when our offence has the ball, and "I Feel Like a Woman" when the Seahags have the ball. LOLOLOL
