The rout is on in Seattle

AP

With one of the weirdest touchdowns of the NFL, the Seahawks have commenced their blowout of the Saints.

In the third quarter, a pass from Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson to tight end Kellen Davis bounced off Davis’s facemask and then into the waiting arms of fullback Derrick Coleman, who lunged forward for a touchdown. The extra point gave the Seahawks a 34-7 lead.

This game has never been close. Seattle took a 3-0 lead on its first possession and made it 17-0 before the end of the first quarter, and it was 27-7 at halftime. The Seahawks have looked phenomenal.

Barring a miraculous comeback, the fourth quarter will be a boisterous celebration in Seattle.

  1. This is what a QB is supposed to look like. Seattle is a winner because they have a great QB that isn’t overpaid. That’s smart football and real value. Is Seattle going for 50 points tonight? Whatever they want is what they get if nobody is going to stop them.

  2. OMG IS THIS GAME FIXED!!! Hilarious. I am not a Saints fan. Could care less who wins. Penalties against the Bountygate team and a makeup effort for Fail Mary.

  3. That was a weird TD. Why was it a good catch when the ball came out going to the ground? Hochuli said it was because he scored a TD Before he hit the ground. Also, why is it not holding “because the QB already left with the ball”? I know there have been some stupid rules changes in recent years but listening to some of the explanations (when actually given) I swear these guys are just making stuff up as they go.

  4. Man, I hate Seattle, they have the most arrogant players and fans in the league, but my oh my, they are DAMN good. The only thing that could have stopped them from walking through the NFC was someone else getting the #1 seed. Congrats Seattle fans, your team is having a special season, that is for sure.

  5. Saints aren’t ready for the big time and I’d be surprised if they ever make it back to the big dance again. Smoke and mirrors can’t prevail against a team like the Hawks.

  6. So much talk about all the players Seattle was missing and how the Saints were going to blow out Seattle.

    Every person follow this team knows there is depth at secondary. The players, coaches and fans all say our back ups would start for most teams and its showing, NO has 104 yards total over half way through the 3rd.

    Russell Wilson is a legit MVP candidate. His arm, his legs and now he has a healthy offensive line. Watch out

  7. As Denver showed us last year being the best team after game 12 definitely means you’ll win the Super Bowl…keep celebrating Seattle.

  8. As good as Seattle looks now (and they certainly look like the best team in the NFL) it means absolutely nothing once January rolls around. The last three Super Bowl winners were 10-6, 9-7, and 10-6.

    Having said all that I have a hard time believing any NFC team can beat Seattle in that crazy stadium. The Super Bowl at Metlife is another story though.

  9. It seemed when New Orleans routed Dallas the announcers could not shut up about Rob Ryan’s “masterful” job as Def. Coord. in New Orleans. hmmmm. Are the Seahawks really invincible? Nah, but they are one of the best, but supposedly, so is New Orleans. Guarantee you Rob Ryan will say “that was on me, that was my fault, not the players, and it WILL NOT happen again.” except, it will.

  10. Unfortunately for Seattle, the championship will be at a neutral field, eliminating their advantage that they will lean on in the playoffs.

    I predict they get there and lose.

  11. Now don’t forget Russell, if you need to tie your shoelaces, ask the nice man in the white hat first, or he’ll throw a yellow flag. Now run along and play.

  12. Looks like a Rob Ryan D plus Brees isn’t about to show up against a good team he will pad stats but against good competition he’s a no show besides always crying for flags his act is really getting old everyone hates when Brady does it and drew is actually a lot worse about and one more thing that silly huddle at the beginning of the game has more than wore itself out everybody watched 300 it wasn’t cool and this nonsense isn’t either grow up

    Ya know, after years of hearing left and right about how soft the Seahawks are, can’t win on the road, can’t do this, can’t do that, I’ll take this “arrogant” team any hour, of any day, of any week.

  14. I only wish the Giants had a team that works as hard and cares about “TEAM”….I watch the ‘Hawks and can only recall the “glory days” the Giants have had….Go ‘Hawks…..you make your fans proud and NFL fans proud….who is America’s Team now ?!!!!

    Just wait for free agency, lol. Better get that ring now while it’s cheap.

  16. I know my team is mediocre at best but any knowledgeable Seahawks fan should honestly tell you that the only team that would make them a tad nervous to face in the playoffs would be the giants. C’mon. You can admit it. We’re not making it

  17. I am loving this. That is the way you play football, in all three areas. They are the best team in the league for a reason. And I love watching Brees get mangled like tonight. When Bill Harvin comes back, it’s a wrap.

  18. Niner fan here, going to the game this sunday at “the stick”. Going to be brutally honest. Seattle looks awesome in every phase of the game. Kaepernick and the rest of the offense needs to convert on third down all game to have a chance. Run the ball, run the ball, play action, run the ball. No cute stuff, keep Wilson next to the Gatorade. We need not stake a claim in this division, we need to keep it.

    When a player goes out of bounds, he must come back inbounds, reestablish himself inbounds, and cannot be the first to touch the football.

    Each of those occurred on that play.

  20. Looks like a Hawks/Pats SB if I had to pick today. After that it would be Chiefs/Hawks. We all know Peypeys going to have to play in the cold at some point, and choke of course. And those ducks he throws will turn out to be 20 pound honkers (those are geese FYI).

  21. I sense much fear in fans of NFC pretenders. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. All fans of NFC pretenders are suffering tonight.

  22. Is this a surprise? Both teams are great at home and average away from home. Seahawks might make it to the SB but I don’t see the Seahawks ur Saints beating the AFC champ at a neutral site. I don’t really care and am probably wrong but just my opinion.

  23. They are dominating tonight.

    But think how often a regular season blowout turns into a playoff rematch loss.

  24. The chiefs used speakers for their noise record, it’s well documented. And stop referencing Seattle as “cheaters,” I don’t remember smoking pot helping me in football ever. Whatta maroon.

    No match for Chip Kellys 11 headed offensive monster machine tour 2013. Zero.

    ———————————————

    You do realize that they aren’t even in first place in the weakest division in the league, right?

  26. They pumped fake crowd noise into the stadium to simulate the noise.

    A team that cheats with PEDs shouldn’t surprise anyone that they have to cheat to get a noise record too.

  27. The Hawks are looking like the real deal. Probably will win it all if they keep that fire going. And to the individual who stated that the Hawks didn’t over pay Wilson; let me remind you that this is his second season! Of course he doesn’t make that much yet! But if he keeps playing like he has, and turns that into a ring? I guarantee you he’s gonna go for a big money deal, and the hawks are gonna give it to him. Cause that’s what good franchises gotta do…

  28. Love my Saints…you gave it the good fight!

    Now let’s move onto Carolina, we are also undefeated at home and will stay that way and stay on top of the NFC South and #2 seed.

    Let’s see…Saints have a SB win and Seahawks got one when?? Try NEVER.

    Saints still rule and will be in the playoffs again this year as NFC South Champions!!

    Congratulations for a great game Seahawks, but Saints are still my team and always will be.

    GEAUX Saints (oh, and on a footnote, the Seahawk fans booing the Saints–real classy there, we don’t even do that to visiting teams at the Dome–but hey, team has a bad attitude, coach has a bad attitude so therefore fans have a bad attitude, monkey see – monkey do).

  29. Saints aren’t ready for the big time and I’d be surprised if they ever make it back to the big dance again. Smoke and mirrors can’t prevail against a team like the Hawks.

    ______________________________

    Not ready for the big time? We’ve made it to the big time as 2009 SB Champs…when has Seattle made it to the big time? NEVER in their entire history.

    Smoke and mirrors got us a SB ring, what do you have? Not a SB ring, that’s for sure!

    His contract is up after next year, I think. He won’t be getting 20 mill, but I wouldn’t be surprised if gets 7 – 11 mill per year for 5 or so years.

  31. @ FinFan68

    I think it’s because Coleman wasn’t going to the ground in the process of his catch. He made the catch and then made a football move (diving for the endzone).

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    That wasn’t the question. It looked like he caught the ball and on his way to the ground lunged for the end zone. When he hit the ground the ball came out. If he were in the end zone the whole time or if he only made it to the 1 then they would have said he failed to maintain control going to the ground. The ref said it was a TD because he broke the plane before losing the ball on the ground.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~
    That is the only thing that makes any sense (if he is viewed as a runner and no longer in the process of a catch) but it looked to me like he was going to the ground already when he stretched for the end zone. Comparing this TD to the non-TDs for Calvin Johnson in the end zone over the last few years shows something still isn’t right. Calvin held the ball and put it on the ground while getting up–NO TD. This catch, possession was determined in a fraction of a second so that crossing the plane equals TD.

    Well, he was never out of bounds anyway, so it’s moot.

    But if Seattle is smart, then they used the cost savings on Russell to get better players so that when his salary ticks upward that they have enough everywhere else to win with. They can afford to give him a raise, but meanwhile a TON of teams are shooting themselves in the foot with grossly overpaid QBs. Those teams have nothing in their future but headaches and losing. All of them are suffering from their horrible deals.

  36. Yeah, since Seattle is known for drafting so poorly, i am sure it was just Luck the last few years that they keep hitting on draft picks that end up in Pro Bowls and all Pro Teams in their first year…This team is ALL ABOUT next man up, so pay a few guys, others may leave, next man up.
