    I disagree, this offense is built to move quick to be successful and the defense is going to have to do their job

    After this game we will know much more about our D.

    Many of us didn't like our D against Panthers or Lions, we will see which D comes out of the gates and which O.

    If both plays up to potential, this will be a nice game

    None of these games are tests that mean anything other than message board opinions. We could shut them out tonight and there will be people saying Vance Joseph sucks but got lucky to catch Wilson on a bad day.

    I started out calling them a playoff contender. I believe I was wrong but 2020 will go down as the weirdest year in pro sports. I think the team is better this year. The O-line is providing good pass protection. Hopkins is as advertised. I’ve called Murray the best running QB in the league. They’ve added some good personnel on D. However I no longer think they’re a likely playoff contender though the standings are a mess.

    That said too many thought the win against the boys was a big deal. I think today proved it wasn’t. They haven’t played a strong offense, except maybe Carolina that lost today. So calling them a strong defense has not yet been proved. I just call them as I see them and show up when I’m wrong.

    Considering the time of possession is even worse then Wilks defense

    Well at first glance it appears he was dead on… Seattle has almost 400 yards of offense in the first freaking half if they keep this up it will obliterate the NFL record… Sometimes Harry just knows what he’s talking about...

    I was never debating that. Everyone who has eye balls knows our D is trash. My point was why keep making threads just to point out the obvious flaws? It’s like saying “yeah, we won last week but our TE’s suck and we’ve never won a SB”. No kidding. What was the point of bringing it up though?

    Wilson is having his best year and been making most D's look very ordinary even with shabby OL play last few seasons. He's been the difference for that franchise. Maybe the league MVP this season. He's due for it.
    Minus C. Jones were just looking to compete vs. the better QB's. Even with him we've been fairly average the last few years, outside the 2018 debacle where everything just sucked.

    Gardeck is better then Fitts
    Fitzpatrick should be replaced
    Simmons need to play 70%of the snaps at this point
    Hicks is one of the worse ILB this year

    Did our defense stop them 3 times in a row at the end of the game there?

    Wow. Some ballsy play calls by Vance there. He gets some champagne tonight IMO.

    Ahhh we shut them down in 2nd half. We shut them down when it mattered.

    Vance just needs to call an aggressive game from the jump. We look like a very good defense when we are playing an aggressive style.

    The difference was the different types of blitzes he was bringing. Once we started knocking Wilson around he looked pretty pedestrian.

    The have to find more snaps for Simmons. As he demonstrated tonight, he is a game changer.
