The Seahawks Crapped The Bed

Or to the team who then rolled out of four wins in a row and looked completely ready to enter Santa Clara and claim a playoff dock on their low-level rivals home ground? Or the team who immediately barfed a chance to clinch on Sunday, do not lose because of its effective as ever crime but because it could not stop taking punishment? Seattle fell 26-23 in overtime to Niners, a sloppy loss that saw breakdown in pass coverage, a botched kickoff coverage, a missed extra score and 14 penalty -10 after half-time – for 148 meters, a franchise record. Public punishment sabotaged Seahawk's last three possessions, but it was a controversial defensive passport interference call on CB Shaquill Griffin in OT who sealed things that went the opposite. Griffin was in coverage of Dante Pettis and seemed to bathe the ball clean, but he was flagged for DPI. Instead of meeting a third and 15 from their own 44, Niners had a new set of drops from Seattle 41, and would kick the game-winning field goal four play later. "Griffin complained later."

What exactly is Seahawks? Are they closer to the team who tripled to posts of 0-2, 2-3 and 4-5? Or to the team who then rolled out of four wins in a row and looked completely ready to enter Santa Clara and claim a playoff dock on their low-level rivals home ground? Or the team who immediately barfed a chance to clinch on Sunday, do not lose because of its effective as ever crime but because it could not stop taking punishment?

Seattle fell 26-23 in overtime to Niners, a sloppy loss that saw breakdown in pass coverage, a botched kickoff coverage, a missed extra score and 14 penalty -10 after half-time – for 148 meters, a franchise record. Public punishment sabotaged Seahawk’s last three possessions, but it was a controversial defensive passport interference call on CB Shaquill Griffin in OT who sealed things that went the opposite.

Griffin was in coverage of Dante Pettis and seemed to bathe the ball clean, but he was flagged for DPI. Instead of meeting a third and 15 from their own 44, Niners had a new set of drops from Seattle 41, and would kick the game-winning field goal four play later. “Griffin complained later.”

Griffin later retweeted a replay of the punishment and wrote: “Must I adjust my game?”

Did it all the worse, Griffin said he had been hypervigilant about how diligent the officials had called the game and did not try to fly a flag .

“I quite knew they would try to call a punishment on someone like the alleged punishment on [Seattle’s] crime,” said Griffin. “And I saw as soon as I saw the passport in the air, I would hold my hand, shut it down and roll over, and that was exactly what I did. And when I got up, I looked at the ref and he threw it. something I can not take back, and it sucks how it ended. But that was a terrible conversation. “

It was perhaps a classic felling game for the Seahawks, but for one man they all refused to take Niners easily. There are no more potential folding games left. Next week they are home in primetime against the bosses who, due to their own loss this week will have to win to beat up the AFC’s top seed. If Seattle loses it, they will be home in week 17 against the real cardinals that are likely to require a win to make the after-season. So they will probably be in one way or another. But what happens after that?

NFC’s first week’s playoff image is filled with talented but highly unsuccessful teams, all of which can look like world images one week and junk next. The Seahawks have already played the other three teams currently on the wild card weekend picture losing to Bears but striking the Vikings and the Cowboys-who they would play for the season ended today. This is the meddling mood that Seattle could have won with a victory against a bad team on Sunday, and could have spent the last two weeks of the season resting and getting well. Not that the Pete Carroll team has been particularly famous for it; he always prefers to get into the play at full speed. Nevertheless, he had liked the option: “We are well aware of that,” Carroll said, “but today there are no silver items in this today.”
