NFL Thread: Thoughts on the game south of the 49th

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Completely agree with Topper.

As a long-time fan, I just wanted to see us win.

Also - As great as nail-biters are, it was nice to be on the right side of a blow-out.

From 2010 onwards, I've seen Canada/USA Gold Medal Game, Nucks/Hawks 2011, and Heat/Spurs 2013, and then Seahawks/49'ers this past playoff season. All nail-biters, and all gut-wrenching.

This blow-out was definitely a breath of fresh air................... :eh:

Question for the poor souls who thought this was a boring game and didn't enjoy it because it was a blowout...

Would you have said that game 7 of the 2001 SCF was boring if, instead of losing, we had blown Boston out 8-1?

Was it boring when we knocked San Jose off in 5 to take the Conference?

NFL is for posers & fagballs...Hockey is a real man's sport, I never miss a game *insert Old Spice commercial music*

As for the game... it looked a lot like two teams that were not equally well prepared. It's possible that you need to have played this 'Hawks team once or twice to get an idea how to beat them.

Kudos to Seattle's less-talked-about-guys, the receiving corps and the special teams - all facets of the team played at a high level. Russell Wilson: 6 of 9 on 3rd down conversions. ... and I seriously think Doug Baldwin might be Seattle's Post-Season MVP. That guy really came to play in the last three games.

Awesome game if you were on the right side of the score. :D


I was on the right side of the score, it's just the hype outweighed the product (and make no mistake about it, it's Amareka, it's all about selling something). Speaking of which, I used the old OTA HDTV and had the US feed with their much hyped commercials....man were they lame. I think the NFL, NBA, UFC and WWE are the gayest. I bet someone comes out in those leagues before NHL or MLB....oh wait...someone already did.... :D

As an impartial fan, blowouts are boring. Get over it.

Is it shocking that Seattle fans enjoyed the game? No! If it was my team I would have enjoyed it too, but as an impartial fan who was hoping for some entertainment, it was like watching Bama vs Florida International or something.

There are all kinds of articles all over the web wondering out loud if this was not only a boring game, but the most boring Super Bowl ever! I guess it's not just me.

Even the local Seattle rags have pondered this. http://www.seattlepi.com/entertainment/tv/tvguide/article/Was-This-the-Most-Boring-Super-Bowl-Ever-5198919.php

The game was in doubt until the first play of the second half.

0-2
0-5
0-8 could have been 0-21 at this point but Denver's D was holding their own
0-15 after the 1st INT, still a 2 score game
0-22 after the pick six, Manning was moving the chains on short dink-n-dumps, but he got stupidly greedy again
----------
0-29 ha ha ha ha, Seahawk's offence manages the clock and the game is done.

Seahawks should trade Russel Wilson to the Jaguars and draft Teddy Bridgewater.
