    I just saw Vince was out. That sucks. They have a new D-line essentially this year. Fortunately they have swithced toa 4-3 so Wilforks absence won't be as awful a blow. We'll see. I love their back 7 and the offense will improve.

    Go Sox,

    Not impressed. This team does not feel like a dominant Super Bowl team. The offense often sputters with poor QB play, and seems to be most productive on unscripted scramble passes or penalties. The defense is solid in passing situations, but is vulnerable to a solid running attack. The offensive line lets the QB get hit far too often. Weren't the Cardinals 4-0 last year before opposing defenses figured out they lacked an offensive line?

    You know, I'm not either really. They have got to get back to a rolling pocket for Wilson. I hear what you're say'n, and that's not taking away from anything that they've done (coming from behind on the road). But they don't look dominant like past SB teams, or teams like the Pats a few years ago or the Broncos now.

    However, look at what the Giants did the year they beat the Pats, and what the Ravens did last year. The big difference between them and the Hawks, is timing. Giants and Ravens found a way to win at the end of the season, Hawks are doing it at the beginning.

    Maybe what the Hawks need (forgive me Hawk fans) is a good butt whoop'n. Let's see how they bounce back after getting their asses handed to them. Yet with their defense, I almost don't see that happening. I think a really bad loss for the Hawks looks like a 28 - 10 or something similar. I don't see anyone (without multiple key injuries on defense) getting 49 pts scored on them.

    Marshawn ran for 98 behind a o-line with one starter against a solid front 7( one of the best in the league). I was more concerned about the secondary getting owned by Houston in the first half. Just goes to show how important a pass rush is.

    If you put Peyton on those New England teams of years gone by, with the protection Brady got they would have won many more super bowls! BRADY WILL FALL, GO HAWKS!

    Teams don't get to the Superbowl based on their margin of victory or by how dominant they appear on either side of the ball - only by winning. Whether it's by 3 points (the Seahawks' margin over the Texans) or by 30 (their margin over Denver in the preseason), a win is a win and that's all that matters.

    That said, the Seahawks' trend towards nail-biter, come-from-behind-at-the last-fucking-minute wins since the last half of the 2012 season seems to have become the norm instead of the exception. And remember where that got them against Atlanta in the NFC semi-final game last season. Too little, too late.

    Still, I think they need to get Wilson rolling out more. At 5' 10 1/2" (without cleats on) that's where he's best.

    Back to my first question,( because I can't navigate through Google on this):
    Isn't this O.C. for the Hawks a new one? Might explain the "old school" style of offense.

    OC is Darrell Bevell, it's his 3rd season as Seattle's OC. That Houston defensive front is one of the best in the biz, maybe rolling out more would have been better but I didn't find the play calling to egregiously terrible or anything.

    At this point they've played 3 of the better defenses in the league in Carolina/S.F/Houston.

    Thanks. I thought I heard that they lost their OC to take a head coaching job. We'll have to "agree to disagree" on the play calling I guess. Too many runs up the middle and drop back passes with little to no play action, which is something Wilson is darn near a master at in only two years.

    Then again (kinda like you said), don't expect to get much running into the gut of J.J. Watt, Shaun Cody and Antonio Smith...

    At the end of last season Bevell's name was mentioned for a number of the coaching vacancies. They did lose the DC to Jacksonville.
