The NFC is the weaker conference all round! That doesn`t mean that there are no good teams, or defenses. Philly and Atlanta were both over rated. Carolina was descent but nothing special. Chicago played above their heads, they are still a couple years away. Wash sucks. The problem is there is nobody to compare seattle to for us afc fans. You beat teams that weren`t Super Bowl caliber teams. Its not seattles fault, thats just the way it is. Does that mean you can`t win the Super Bowl? Of coure not! Other than the fact that I beleive we will!

Steelers 27- seattle 10

GOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooooooSteelers!

It's a team game and they play as a unit as well as any team in the league. Our secondary isn't stellar- that's true (or safety got is heack beat in outside a bar earlier in the year). My main concern is keeping up defensive intensity away from home.

Intensity is a key factor! Porter is our emotional leader! who is yours? Not making fun, I just don`t know!

On D, it has become Tatupu by my estimation. Which sounds crazy since he is a rookie. He has quite a future in this league if he can keep it up.

Right now Seattle doesn't seem to be a team that demonstrates its emotion in a outward fashion in between plays.

I can't say we have one- or need one. That's what I like about this squad. They're like one organism- truly a team.

Maybe Hasselbeck?

That comes from Coach Holmgren..he's never been a trash talker or a coach that promoted talking on his team. They play hard and leave it on field..nothing wrong with that all. They've got the big dance with that mentality so it works for them.

Agreed. I think discipline is really important to the success of our offense since the whole West Coast thing requires so much precision to execute well.

Sometimes I think it would be nice to have an enforcer type guy on defense though that could play some Jedi mind tricks on weaker offensive opponents. But that would probably screw up all the good chemistry we have going.

In my mind, the NFC is the defensive league while the AFC excells at offense.

the only reason the nfc is a defensive league as you say is because no one in the damn nfc has an offense worht a damn so of course they gonna look great. the afc offense is ten times better then any nfc defense

When did the NFL become such a terrible product, exactly?

It's a wonder anyone still watches football, based on the comments I read on this forum...

I would agree that the AFC is the dominant conference between the 2..generally across the board the AFC is more wide open with more great teams than the NFC, as evident by the tight playoff races and postseason results..

but the NFC has some quality teams, one of which is playing this sunday. They earned their shot to get here.
