Week 5 – Seahawks Win! (R-Rated Thread)

The margin of victory may have only been four points, but this was a complete victory.  The Seahawks threw for more yardage, ran for more yardage, converted more first downs, racked up more sacks, and forced more fumbles than the Panthers.  Carolina’s defense did perform better than expected by intercepting two passes, scoring more points than Newton and the offense, and holding the Seahawks to gain only 2.8 yards per carry, but Lynch still managed to fight for yardage and convert downs when it mattered most.

Feel free to swear at Giacomini to your heart’s content in the comments below, but this was a solid win.

Week 5 – Seahawks Win! (R-Rated Thread)

The Seahawks just won a morning game on the East Coast with a backup quarterback, tight end, cornerback, and left tackle.  Hopefully the injuries to Miller, Okung, Trufant, and Jackson aren’t serious, but we’ll probably have to wait a day or two to hear their prognoses.

Pyrrhic or not, a victory is a victory, especially when (most of) the Seahawks earn it by playing well in all three phases of the game.  Time to celebrate!
