The clouds have parted, the planets have aligned…

The clouds have parted; the planets have aligned and haramony will reign.
Theis is the years of years in Seattle. I have never see the people here this happy and excited in a long-long time. It is difficult to explain the atmosphere when out and about. This is a good time to be a Seattle Seahawks Fan!! 99.9 KISW "The ROCK" and the Grant Winstrom (#96) Foundation have teamed up for a live on air auction, minimum bid 5k, to rich for me. It starts 1/26/06 @ 6:30 am, that’s tomorrow!! But they are also having a ROCK party at the Showbox so I may get down on that.
For some reason I have been on the war path ever since the Hawks won the NFC Championship game. But honestly I still can’t beleive the Hawks are getting any hype. Hmmmm, I guess that is always going to happen but for once we are the best team in football. Like it or not, the Seahawks have best record out of the two.

 statistics from FOX Sports on January 25, 2006

We have a low 3rd & 4th down coversions but that is becuase we converted 66 more times than our opponents on first down. We hold their offense to more plays more play per drive to were the Seahawks march down field and scores. Seattle scored 31 more TDs than their oppenents. That is 217 points on the year which averages over 13 points per game. That time offensive power is what make the Seahawks such a power force. We allow field goals not touch downs.


Only a Team can put up consistent numbers aross the board. Those are impressive 🙂


Seahawks Average Team Rankings Steelers
6.5 Total Offense 12.5
18.4 Total Defense 11.5
8.4 Passing Offense 16.8
16.6 Passing Defense 12.1
5.0 Rushing Offense 9.7
6.5 Rushing Defense 4.8
11.3 Receiving Offense 18.3
24.8 Receiving Defense 15.0
21.0 Punting 25.7
24.5 Return 20.0
29.7 Kicking 22.3

If the Steelers can stop us from scoring they may have a chance on winning. But if they have to try to put up more offense points they will fall short. The Seahawks have the best red zone offense in the NFL.
