    NFL playoffs 2020

    I just want to say how pissed off I am. I will not comment but I will post this...

    Once again, the Seahawks had Marshawn Lynch and the ball at the 1. Once again, their coaches blew it.


    No. Not again. No. Freakin’. Way.

    There’s unbelievable, there’s inexcusable, and then there’s that.

    Once again, the Seahawks had the ball on the 1 with victory imminent. Once again, they had Marshawn Lynch in a helmet with a chance to take it home. And once again, the coaching staff fumbled it away like a world-class klutz.

    How the hell did that happen?

    Everything was in place for the fairy tale to come to fruition in that regular-season finale. Seattle rallied from 12 points down in the fourth quarter and had a chance to take the lead with 22 seconds to go.

    Russell Wilson led the Seahawks from their 27, completed an 11-yard pass on fourth-and-10 from the 12, spiked the ball and then … a DELAY OF GAME?!?!?!

    You have got to be kidding. The only way that’s fathomable is as a practical joke.

    No way the coaches’ brains were capable of that level of flatulence, right?

    Alas, they were. Those guys gave the division away.

    “We just didn’t quite get it communicated with the backs. We were just late. We just burned the time,” said Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, whose team lost to the 49ers, 26-21. “We just didn’t get it done. We didn’t function cleanly.”

    Carroll saying they “didn’t function cleanly” is an all-time exercise in understating. General Custer didn’t function cleanly. Miss Teen South Carolina didn’t, either.

    The Seahawks bungled a basic element of the game and cost themselves an NFC West crown and home playoff game as a result.

    This isn’t how it was supposed to go down with this team. Not with the way it has played all year. The Seahawks (11-5) had won nine of their previous 10 games decided by one score — including two in overtime.

    Moreover, in an almost too-corny-for-Hollywood moment, they had just re-signed Lynch to give them a boost at the depleted running-back position. And when Lynch scored early in the fourth quarter to cut the deficit to five, the boom from CenturyLink Field registered on the Cal Tech Richter scale.

    It looked like he was going to do it again when he ran onto the field with 22 seconds to go. Then came of the delay of game. Barf bag, anyone?

    “I was sick. I didn’t know what was going on. I was just like, ‘What the freak happened?'” said Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. “It’s part of the game. Nothing I could do about it. It made a difference, though.”

    The Seahawks still had three chances to score but had to do it from the 5 instead of the 1. They almost did it, too, as tight end Jacob Hollister was stopped one inch short of the goal line on fourth down. Fans will gripe that San Francisco (13-3) should have been called for pass interference one play earlier, but after that delay of game, you have to live with potential missed calls.
    Now the Seahawks have to go on the road to take on Philadelphia. Now there will be no division banner to signify their season.

    Now they will have to spend the next six days — and maybe more once the season is over — wondering how this one got away.


    “It gets your blood boiling,” right guard D.J. Fluker said.

    One of the most famous lines in movie history comes from “Cool Hand Luke,” when the police captain yells out, “What we have here, is failure to communicate.”
    The Seahawks’ coaches had that same failure Sunday. And like “Luke,” it led to a tragic ending.

    Great game. Good to see the Niners back in the Superbowl.

    Was pinged by a few colleagues and asked if I want to join them and go to the big dance in Miami...... Hmmmmmm.

    I was rooting against a division rival you idiot. I was pulling for Green Bay as well. Last thing I wanted was the whiners in the super bowl. So I wouldn't have to listen to this shit...

    SF sports fans of the giants, warriors, 49ers are well known as band wagon riders.

    the only way that game could have been considered great is if the person watching was hoping for a 49ers victory. as you wrote, "the game" was horrible. it was 10-15 yard run after 10-15 yard run.

    vegas has the SB as more or less even, so we can hope that chiefs/niners will be better.

    5555 Sea Chicken fans turn on their team win losing. A cardinal sin my friend. Chickens have one great player his name is Russell Wilson, other than that you have huge problems for years to come.

    Blaming Pete Carroll for your loss to the Niners, talk about fair weather fans. Anyhoo. You are gone and we are in....

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Well Snubs, I am a Dallas Cowboy fan first and foremost. However they tanked. The other team I enjoy watching is the 49ers and have since I was about 10. Watching them whoop Aaron Rodgers and the Packers made it a good game for me. The Packers never showed up.

    As for Reachy's crack. I have been a Warrior's and Giants fan since the early 70's when I started to watch and go to games with my Dad. Every sports team has "Bandwagoners". It never bothers me.

    Looking at Tickets to Miami this evening.........

    Same here except a decade earlier. Then along came the Raiders so being a champion of the underdog always rooted for Raiders when ever they met in a Battle of the Bay game.

    It's the only game of the year that I watch, I'm more a Baseball fan.
    Who is the sentimental favorite? That will be my team.

    The 49ers are my team for historical reasons, but I think the Kansas mob will be favourites.

    Actually no we are experienced at suffering and tend to weather all storms thick and thin.

    It was a clock mismanagement issue. We should have won that game twice. But enjoy you will most likely win the superbowl.

    Hope so...

    But keep in mind you played the Pack once this year and lost 28-23. We played them twice and won 74-28. Pretty telling stat right there.
