    I heard about this by accident.I was looking at the sports section to check the baseball standings since it is getting close to playoff time and saw a big headline on that the other day.
    I was surprised to hear the Seahawks let go of Kearse for Richardson. I dont get that at all.Kearse has always made some great clutch catches for them over the years.Like the catch that SHOULD have set up the game winning touchdown in that superbowl in the final minute where they SHOULD have been back to back superbowl champs .

    The Seahawks already have a loaded and talented defense.I can see them wanting to get Richardson for depth but to give up Kearse for him I dont think was worth the price and imo it will hurt them in the long run.the only thing i can think of on why Schneider was willing to part with Kearse is he has a couple of young guys in place that have been groomed to replace him that he is confidant in i guess.

    I was expecting Kearse to be traded and I can understand why they went after Richardson for two reason...one: Salary cap and two: I think the Seahawks lack a decent pass rush and hopes to shore it up with this trade. Kearse had a down year last year and maybe that is another reason the coaching staff thought he was expendable.
    When I heard about the possibility of a Kearse trade I thought the outstanding catches that Williams made in the preseason was the reason but for some strange reason Williams was cut and picked up by Cleveland...poor Williams...Cleveland the death bed of good football players.

    The offensive line especially in the first half didn't do their job..there was a improvement in the second some what.
    I noticed a big difference in decision making by Wilson, either he and his receivers weren't on the same page or play calling by the coaching didn't account for what the Packer defense was giving them.
    What I mean by this is when Rodgers was pressured, and he was most of the game, he was able to make plays.....When Wilson was pressured not so much.

    I think the biggest goof by officials was when Graham was mugged in the end zone...an obvious foul.

    Yeah I was down at a restaurant and watching the Rams game on a big screen on the wall and next to it they were showing the Seahawks game as well and I saw that and i could not believe it,,this is suppose to be a day and age when you cant touch the receivers and they were MUGGING him and they were not called for pass intereference? what B.S

    Dont forget the other horrible call where they called whats his name blocking Aaron Rodgers on the interception that was returned for a touchdown back because they said it was block in the back when it showed it was only from the side,a legal hit.Even Howie Long at the halftime show said he did not agree with that call.

    Seahawk fans were really screwed in this game having the Packers benefit from some hometown reffing.

    That is why I am done with the NFL.Other than the rams home opener i said i would watch and the niners two games,i wont watch the NFL this year INCLUDING the rams other than those 3 games,i have turned to college football. go UCLA.:thup:

    I think Seattle and the NY Giants have the two worst offensive lines in football. Neither team could protect their QBs. Unless both these teams get line help, I don't see either team making the Super Bowl.

    Eh....Wilson was sacked three times but Rodgers was sacked four times....Seattle out gained Green Bay on the ground... in fact GB had 28 carries for only 84 yards (3 yds per carry) compared to Seattle only 18 carries for 90 yards (5 yds a carry), adding that Seattle couldn't afford to run the ball much in the latter stages of the game because they were playing catch up.

    Yes Seattle offensive line struggled in the first half but did fairly well in the second half. Both quarterbacks had to scramble most of the game. The difference was Rodgers could make the plays on the run and Wilson couldn't. One big difference was GB had the ball over 39 minutes to Seattle's just under 21.

    the MAIN difference though was they had the home town refs in their pockets.Had this game been officiated FAIRLY,no way in hell do the packers win this game. Rodgers interception for a touchdown by the seahawks that Howie Long criticised them for would never have been called back and there is no way they would not have converted on 1st and goal on the one had they made the appropriate call against the packers defenders mugging Graham in the end zone.

    Thats 14 points taken off the board for the seahawks right there.

    I am so sick and tired of these home town refs afraid of the crowds if they make the correct calls. NFL football really disgusts me. I cant ever remember it being so bad where the packers always had the refs behind them in years past as they do now. Borriler nailed it on another thread when he said he should have known better than to pick against the pack in green bay stating how the Pack always has the refs in their pockets down there. He was talking about that as well.

    Lets look at the closely...Seattle had 21 first downs to 11 for SF. Seattle held SF to 89 passing yards. Rushing, yes Seattle give up two long runs that only produced one field goal for SF. Seattle had zero turnovers.
    Nine penalties didn't help and a lot of those penalties were just plain stupid on Seattle's part. My God... blocking in the back on a punt return is so stupid. So is offensive and defensive holding...come on.... these are supposedly professional football players who should know by now the rules. Jumping off sides or lining up off sides is another act of stupidity.

    Now I agree with Hemlock140 that the offensive line is a problem, a major problem. Wilson having to roll out is not a good game plan but a necessity. Wilson was sacked three time when he stayed in the pocket.

    Now in my opinion, Seattle better look long and hard at both Rawls and Lacy as having any real meaningful contribution to this team. Rawls, who only carried the ball five times for a lousy four yards, has not shown he has it any longer since he broke his ankle last year. He seems to me as very tentative. Not sure about Lacy but the coaching staff seems not to want to use him at this time. I am wondering what is going on with both players.

    Its Seattle defensive that is their greatest strong point and yesterday and the game against GB shows they are the reason the Seahawks will most likely make the playoffs...but beyond that and poor play by Wilson and poor play calling by Bevell, I don't think the SuperBowl is in Seattle destiny.

    Atlanta looked very good on both sides of the ball, granted Atlanta doesn't have a defense as good as Seattle's, however, it is a good D and a good offense that can run or pass and makes them difficult to defend.

    Seattle also has no team that will contend for the NFC West. SF is terrible, Rams are average at best and Arizona looks like an 0-16 team, more than a team that could contend for a division title.
