1090 The Fan’s Bill Swartz reflects on Sunday’s loss and the terrific 2012-13 campaign for the Seattle Seahawks.
The Atlanta Falcons’ game-winning field goal in the final 13 seconds of regulation overshadowed the Seahawks’ second half comeback.
Seattle needs to pressure Matt Ryan, stop his star receiving duo of Julio Jones and Roddy White, run the ball like they have all season and score touchdowns in the red zone.
Another Blue Friday, another loud afternoon on S 188th St in SeaTac. Pete Carroll was seen in the first bus waving, fist-pumping and documenting the rambunctiousness of the 12th Man on his phone.
Matt Ryan is still looking for his first playoff win, and he will have to continue his great play if he is going to get it against a streaking Seattle team.
The Seattle Seahawks overcame a 14-0 deficit and a poor performance in the red zone to knock off the Washington Redskins and move on to play the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday.
Marshawn Lynch ran for 131 yards, and rookie quarterback Russell Wilson completed 15 of 26 passes for 187 yards and ran eight times for 67 yards for the Seahawks — but the underlining story of the game was Seattle’s top-notch defense from the second quarter on.
No matter what they do in these playoffs, the Seahawks are built for long-term success and will be a factor for years to come.
Washington is a lot like the San Francisco team that was blown out by Seattle two weeks ago, but the Hawks will have to stop the running game and beat Jim Haslett’s exotic blitzes.
Russell Wilson, the third-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, had a 115.2 passer rating in December.
