Seattle B-Hawks – 24
St. Louis Rams – 22

I’ve said before, and I’ll say it again: Josh Brown is a fucking stud.

The best news is that we may see the return of both Hasselbeck and Alexander next week. I must say, I’m very pleasantly surprised at how well the team handled their absences (even though I was won Raider loss away from turning the page on this season and looking forward to a rebound year in ’07.) Now if the Chicago Bears would just start coming back down to Earth, we might still have a shot at heading back to the Super Bowl.

Next week: at San Francisco (4-5)
Even though we now have a 2-game lead in the division (which is essentially three because of our sweep of the Rams), let’s not sleep on the division. Well, except maybe for the Cardinals.

    You meet the Niners just when I’m beginning to be unashamed of them. Bring it on, Seabirds, we’re gonna…

    Oh, who am I kidding? They’re still gonna get thier asses kicked.

    Good game.

    First of all, I decided to give up on hating on the Seahawks. It’s not worth my time anymore, and I come off more like an asshole than anything else. So, please forgive me. I’m still not a fan, but I’m no longer a hater.

    The only real challenge the Seahawks have left is the San Diego Chargers later on. Aside from that, Seattle is guaranteed their 3rd straight NFC West title and Home Field Advantage until the NFC Finals against the Bears at Soldier Field.

    Brown has ice water running through his veins, what a crazy stud. Thankfully both Hasselback and Alexander come back against a team that isn’t very good so they can get on their feet. The Niners are very two faced, will we encounter the ones that beat the vikings or the ones that got massacred on 3 separate occasions this year already? I have faith in the Hawks, even though the road to Miami in the NFC most likely will run through a FREEZING COLD Soldier Field.

    Seattle B-Hawks In jest or not, this is a great insult to the players who are doing their best to help out the team. Seneca Wallace is playing like he’s been QB all of his life, and Mo Morris should have been Player of the Game last Sunday.

    I’ve said before, and I’ll say it again: Josh Brown is a fucking stud.Bears repeating. The two-minute drill that Seattle put on was masterful, except that they left a little more time on the clock than I would have liked. But even so…

    The best news is that we may see the return of both Hasselbeck and Alexander next week. Honestly, if I’m The Walrus, I very much think about keeping them on the bench next weekend too. Maybe have them suit up if things go badly in the first half, but as you’ve seen, we’re so far ahead that it would be better to have Matt and Shaun rested fully.

    Now if the Chicago Bears would just start coming back down to Earth, we might still have a shot at heading back to the Super Bowl.Oh, I dunno about that. What they say about “Any given Sunday” and all. I would stake a bundle on our return to the playoffs, and a smaller bundle on a spot in the NFC championship game, but a Super Bowl return trip isn’t out of the cards yet.

    It’s a shame really that you can’t hear the local radio guys doing the broadcast of the game. It’s like you’re actually there. It beats the hell out of the TV coverage, for sure.

    No it’s not. They’re the B-squad, and they know it, and there’s no shame at all in being the backups. If they really were the best players on the team, they’d be the starters. Heck, that quarterback probably will be a starter somewhere someday. The comment was a bit barbed, sure, but really, if the reserves are winning the games for you, that’s the sign of a strong football team.

    You’re still wrong.

    The team is the “Seahawks.” Not “The B-Hawks,” or “The Tin Men,” or “The Suckhawks.” They deserve to be called by what they want to be called. And since “SEAHAWKS” is what shows up on the Jumbotron, that’s what I’m going with.

    It’s true for everyone. It drives me mad when Will would call people on our message board by their screen name, even when it was obvious to the most clueless of individuals that screen name does not equal real name. That right is innate for everyone.

    Nope, they’re the Seagulls. :p

    C’mon, lighten up. Next you’ll be on people for calling the San Francisco team the “Niners” or the Green Bay team the “Pack”

    On ESPN.com, there’s a weekly feature called “Tuesday Morning Quarterback” where columnist Gregg Easterbrook waxes poetic about the various happenings of the previous week in the NFL. In such column, he typically refers to Seattle as the Blue Man Group, in reference to their uniform change a few season back to a streamlined blue color. He also has a habit of calling Tennessee the Flaming Thumbtacks, New England has the Flying Elvii and the Giants and Jets are known as Jersey/A and Jersey/B.

    Is it slightly derisive? Maybe. Should I, as a Seahawk fan, take offense at their being lampooned because of their uniform? No. Why not? Because this is professional sports, and if you’re prepared to root for a team, you should be prepared to suffer all the slings and arrows along with the team you support.

    Calling the Seahawks the “B-Hawks” is not a mean-spirited dig at the benchwarmers who were charged with the task of maintaining the team’s playoff hopes while a myriad of starters were nursing injuries. It’s a self-deprecating riff at the misfortune we had in the early part of the season. Wallace, Morris et al did a very good job of holding down the fort while their first-string equivalents were on the sidelines, but that doesn’t change the fact that they were backups.

    “New England has the Flying Elvii”

    I thought only New Englanders called it that. I remember back in Mass. when the Pats debued the new logo. Many a smartass comment in the local sports sections.

    The Flying Elvis logo looks a LOT better than the old one, though.

    too late. Miami probably woke up a bunch of ANGRY grizzlies Seattle may want NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO part of in Chi-Town in late January. The only trip in the Bears sched is The Flying Elvii on the 26th. Otherwise it’s 15-1 and a cold Soldier Field.
