Seahawks made Drew Brees look like just another guy

For the Seahawks last night, it wasn’t just what they did.

It was who they did it to.

The Seahawks made Saints quarterback Drew Brees look ordinary, or worse, in a 34-7 beating last night.

Brees was 23-of-38 passing for just 147 yards and a touchdown, an uncharacteristically bad night.

This is the most prolific guy ever,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said, via Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “For us to hold up, it took a long time to get over 100.”

The flat-tire outing broke a streak of 43 straight games with at least 200 passing yards, mostly because he couldn’t find anything open downfield. He had one completion  longer than 14 yards, and averaged a meager 3.9 yards per pass attempt.

“The fact of the matter is we took one on the chin today,” Brees said. “As of right now, it’s looking like the road to the Super Bowl goes through here [Seattle].”

Of course, they’re going to have to get through a pair of games with the Panthers in the next three weeks to see if any of those anticipated playoff games will be in their own building, as they’re tied for the division lead at the moment.

  1. It’s too bad the team from Alaska is chalked full of turds, like Browner, Sherman, Tate and the head turd, Pete the cheat Carroll.

  2. The good news for the Saints? They held Lynch to fewer yards for the game than they gave up on that one run in the playoffs three seasons ago.

    The bad news? Everything else.

    As a ‘Hawk fan, the offensive line injuries earlier in the year worried me a lot more than the secondary situation last night. CB is the deepest position on the team. Lane and Maxwell would probably be starters on 20 other teams in this league….and may well wind up in that situation once their contracts run out.

  3. joetoronto, It’s too bad you get to watch the Seahawks dominate every other team in the league.

    No wait, I actually LOVE IT!

  4. How is an Alaska reference supposed to be a burn Joe? Your mayor admittedly smokes crack became a continental punchline and remains the mayor.

    11-1, these trolls have been running out of material for a long time. Russell Wilson MVP candidate. Go Hawks!

  5. Makes me laugh. People looking to down play the Hawks success. thundastormz, we played the Niners already, and beat the crap out of them. joetoronto, when has Canada ever had any football worth even mentioning? Time to just man up and give the Hawks their do. You don’t like Sherman cause he talks trash. Looks to me like he backs up his talk. As for trashing our coash Pete, I would rather see him in Seattle than any of the other coaches in the NFL. Face it, the road to the Super Bowl will go thru Seattle. Live with it!!!

    Just wait until they have to play the #1 defense next week! Ice Up Son!

    The Panthers will get exposed in that dome.

  7. Yes, in which way is Pete cheating? Was that 60 yard pass to Zach Miller cheating? Was the TD slant to Miller cheating? Oh was it the Bennett TD? Was that cheating? What about the where Doug Baldwin schooled the defense and got open in the corner of the end zone for another TD? Let me guess, Pete and the rest of the team was cheating? Hmmm? Which players out there were on adderall? Hmmm??? I really want to know where this cheat talk is coming from. I think the cheaters are the spygate Patriots.

  8. How did Carroll cheat, you ask?

    Well, he got 2 tainted national championships at USC by giving players benefits to come there.

    Don’t even get me started on the Fail Mary. (OK, that wasn’t Carroll, but Tate pushed off.)
