10:03
AskSNF: Can the Seahawks, considering they win this game, have any momentum enough to win their first game in the playoffs?
PFTonSNF: Win the game first. And the winner here is a real longshot against NO either way.

10:04
AskSNF: Mike, Do you believe that Fisher will be the coach of the Titans next year?
PFTonSNF: Owners Bud Adams will meet with Fisher Monday. Adams wants to keep Vince Young, so Fisher may want to go. Will say he goes.

10:06
AskSNF: Who will be coaching the Denver Broncos this upcoming season?
PFTonSNF: Hard to say. John Elway will get to decide. They will take their time.

10:08
AskSNF: Does Mike McCarthy have the necessary coaching skills to win three playoff games on the road?
PFTonSNF: Great question. His game management and play calls have cost them plenty in close games.

10:10
PFTonSNF: Lynch’s knees were not down. Fumble should stand.

10:11
AskSNF: Will Cowher end up in Miami?
PFTonSNF: That’s the most logical place for him left. Houston and NYG are out.

10:12
AskSNF: Hey Mike, record-wise, where do you see these two teams next year? .500 for each again?
PFTonSNF: Rams are building towards something. Think they will be better. Seattle has longer to go.

10:14
AskSNF: whats up for the niners
PFTonSNF: They will hire Trent Baalke as G.M. probably Monday. Then try to get Jim Harbaugh.

10:16
AskSNF: Is Jason Garret the coach in Dallas next season?
PFTonSNF: They won’t confirm it yet, but yes.

10:17
AskSNF: FACT: Bradford averages a truly pathetic 6.0 ypa. Completion % and lack of INTs are solid, but he hasn’t been good. For rookie, decent..
PFTonSNF: Lack of weapons a serious problem for him.

10:21
AskSNF: do you think sam bradford will win rookie of the year?
PFTonSNF: It won’t even be close.

10:21
PFTonSNF: Fun stat: Jamaal Charles joins Jim Brown as only players to average 6.3 yards-per-carry and rush for 1,400 yards.

10:22
PFTonSNF: Charlie Whitehurst is starting to see pass rushers that aren’t there.

10:23
AskSNF: Do you think the Bears lost on purpose just in case they may have faced the Giants ?
PFTonSNF: No chance … they played starters throughout. Packers tougher matchup anyhow.

10:25
AskSNF: Will Hasselbeck be a seahawk next year?
PFTonSNF: Very unlikely.

10:28
AskSNF: When will the NFC South get the respect that it deserves? It’s clearly the best division in football.
PFTonSNF: Got a huge edge facing NFC West and Carolina twice apiece. 6 games against the worst in football.

10:31
AskSNF: What changes do the Hawks need to be a true contender next year?
PFTonSNF: Need to find a QB. Improve line play on both sides. That’s a start.

10:32
AskSNF: Do you think the Rams need a new offensive coordinator???
PFTonSNF: No I think they have done fine with what they have.

10:35
AskSNF: Nice webcast. I especially like the ability to choose cameras. Good job NBC
PFTonSNF: Thank you sir.

10:35
AskSNF: who would you have behind center in TENN next year?
PFTonSNF: Not Vince Young. Don’t think you can trust him.

10:38
PFTonSNF: Just a huge drive for the Rams defense. They have carried team all year, not Bradford.

10:39
AskSNF: Awhy are the rams so conservative/k Mike Florio
PFTonSNF: They have been all year. Their style of play.

10:40
PFTonSNF: Seahawks have out-gained Seattle 253-163.

10:42
PFTonSNF: Seahawks lead Rams of course 253-163 in yards. What a huge play by the Rams defense.

10:43
PFTonSNF: Uh … Pete Carroll bigger brain fart than me on that typo. What a huge mistake.

10:43
AskSNF: Do the chargers just get rid of Norv Turner and move on with, say Gruden if he is available and willing to come to San Diego?
PFTonSNF: They are keeping Turner.

10:45
AskSNF: Name a wide reciever for Seattle? You can’t say Mike Williams? Okay, you can say Williams, but only if you talk about how fat and lazy he is
PFTonSNF: Ben Obamanu. Golden Tate. The immortal Ruvell Martin!

10:45
AskSNF: would consder pete carrol’s first year a success?
PFTonSNF: Yes considering what he took over.

10:46
AskSNF: Ask Mike Florio: Does Belichick win coach of the year? This could be his fifth SuperBowl, most among active coaches, right?
PFTonSNF: My guess is he barely beats Raheem Morris, but it could go either way. Spagnuolo and Haley in the mix.

10:46
AskSNF: Do you think the Falcons will make it to the superbowl?
PFTonSNF: No. Dangerous wild card teams with Packers and Saints will be trouble.

10:47
AskSNF: Who do you think has the better chance against NO: STL or SEA?
PFTonSNF: Would say Rams because they have a better defense. Especially at home.

10:49
AskSNF: What position in the draft will the winner have? Better or worse than the Bucs?
PFTonSNF: Seahawks will be 8 if they lose, no better than 21 if they win. Rams will be 13 if they lose.

10:50
AskSNF: is sam bradford capable of winning his first playoff game
PFTonSNF: Is he capable of leading a touchdown drive right now? Rams defense needs to make a play.

10:56
AskSNF: Matt Hasselbeck is warming up over on the sideline. #Seahawks #SNF
ANSWER: Oh boy.

10:56
PFTonSNF: We’ll learn a lot about Sam Bradford right here. What a spot for a rookie.

10:57
PFTonSNF: Danario Alexander failed to make a few big plays in the last few weeks too.

10:57
PFTonSNF: The Rams have one first down this half.

10:59
AskSNF: do you think this game is pathetic?
PFTonSNF: Both teams have big weaknesses. But I enjoy a game that means so much to both cities. Lot of drama.

11:00
AskSNF: how is that not pass interference ther on 3rd down?
PFTonSNF: It was a good non-call.

11:01
AskSNF: Does Tampa Bay have a bright future?
PFTonSNF: Absolutely. Youngest team in the league and did that well despite lots of injuries. Freeman makes them relevant.

11:03
AskSNF: Will any of the RAMS wide recievers, besides Amendola, return next year?
PFTonSNF: Alexander is a keeper. A lot of talent.

11:04
15 second drive by Seahawks. Disastrous.

11:05
AskSNF: Do either of these teams deserve to play next week?
PFTonSNF: Not really, no.

11:06
AskSNF: Whos in the running to replace John Fox in Carolina?
PFTonSNF: Ron Rivera will interview. Rob Ryan a possibility.

11:07
AskSNF: Can we still tweet you questions after the season is over?
PFTonSNF: Try @profootballtalk

11:08
PFTonSNF: 3 points wins the game for Seattle. Staying on the ground now.

11:10
AskSNF: Should the seahawks keep the rookie QB during the playoffs?
PFTonSNF: If you mean Whitehurst … yes he should keep job. Unless he takes more hits like that.

11:10
AskSNF: If you were a coach woud you sit your players if your player if you had a playoff seed locked week 17?
PFTonSNF: Belichick doesn’t. Think that’s a good approach.

11:10
AskSNF: CMON MAN.. Will Favre coach?
PFTonSNF: No chance.

11:12
AskSNF: Huge rookie mistake by Bradford on that int throw.
PFTonSNF: Yeah he really struggled the last 5 weeks.

11:12
PFTonSNF: Terrible spot by officials. Will cost Rams time. They should use timeouts here. Hello?

11:14
AskSNF: Who will be the coach and QB of the dolphins next year
PFTonSNF: Doubt Sparano after today. Don’t discount Bill Cowher.

11:15
AskSNF: There has been some shady officiating in this game, right Mike? Maybe this division brings out the worst in everybody.
PFTonSNF: It has not been a good night for the officials, agreed.

11:15
AskSNF: Mike, will NBC stream any of their playoff games?
PFTonSNF: Nope, sorry. This is the finale.

11:17
PFTonSNF: Steve Spagnuolo doing a nice job running out the clock here. … wait a second.

11:19
AskSNF: Spagnuolo’s performance tonight abysmal, agree?
PFTonSNF: Not his best performance. But the defense did their job.

11:19
AskSNF: Do you think the NFL will change the playoffs to seeded now that a 7-9 team will make the playoffs and host a game?
PFTonSNF: Yes, think that is very possible. They could make it so division winners could go on the road in first round.

11:20
AskSNF: professor pippy pee-pee poopypantys
PFTonSNF: Bad spot by officials but no reason to think Rams would have stopped them in third-and-one.

11:21
AskSNF: Hey Mike do either of these teams stand a chance against the Saints?
PFTonSNF: Really don’t think so.

11:21
AskSNF: Where will Hasselbeck play next year?
PFTonSNF: Cleveland with Holmgren?

11:24
AskSNF: do you think Bradford hit the rookie wall and that prevented the rams chances?
PFTonSNF: He definitely did not play well in December. (Or January.)

11:25
AskSNF: Does Charlie Whitehurst start against the Saints next week or does Hasselback? Also, does it matter?
PFTonSNF: Have to think Whitehurst starts but nothing would surprise me.

11:27
AskSNF: Mike, what will the three top picks in April look like?
PFTonSNF: Here’s the top 15. http://bit.ly/eSiWVx

11:27
PFTonSNF: Bradford has taken every snap for the Rams this year. Seahawks did their best to end that streak.

11:28
PFTonSNF: The Seahawks are in! Give them credit for delivering their best game in such a big spot.

11:29
AskSNF: do you think bradford was the downfall for the rams
PFTonSNF: No. He’s the reason they made it this far.

11:31
AskSNF: Greg in Wisconsin says turn out the lights the party is over…
PFTonSNF: Thanks for watching and asking questions all year guys. It was a blast.

11:32
AskSNF: any chance bradford isnt offensive rookie of the year
PFTonSNF: No he’ll still win. Okay, post-game here we come. Have a good one.
