Not sure why the pass D was so poor this year.


I keep hearing about a lot of people who blame Norton. Not sure if that's the case, they have been working with a patchwork secondary for a couple years now since losing Sherman, Kam, and Earl.

IMO, not enough pass rush pressure on the QB for starters.

Also, without a unique, speedy safety like Earl Thomas, the Hawks had to play cover 2 defense rather than cover 1.  Earl covered a lot of territory and allowed the other safety to come up into the box for run stopping or potential blitzes.  Playing two safeties back helped take away corner and side routes but ultimately creates a zone in the middle where assignments are less clear.  The Hawks got torched again and again this season by drag routes and by backs and tight ends giving a token block, then drifting out in the middle.  Also staying in base defense with 3 LBs created some speed issues - LBs couldn't keep up.  That was a telling sign how little trust the coaches had in the current DBs in nickel situations let alone even attempting dime defenses.

The Plackers are getting smoked by the forty whiners, pretty sure the 'Hawks could have done a bit better, they always play tough against them. Having to watch the (crappy) game on my phone using the free NFL app since Fox and Dish are having a disagreement so the games not on TV here.

The 49er have 264 rushing yards and the game is not over yet.

The two games we played against the Niners were a heckuva lot more competitive than this blowout....

Gotta hope KC can take em in 2 weeks; donít know if I can bear to hear Richard Sherman boast endlessly after a Niners win, plus SF needs a Super Bowl hangover!

Best part of today's game was seeing Sherman get beat deep.

I think the best two teams are in the SB....I want KC to win but I would not bet on it....they for sure have the best QB, but the whiners have a pretty big edge on defense I think, although KC looked pretty good today on that side of the ball, and they did get their best lineman back today from an injury.

Sherman is essentially a failed wide reciever, so it's no surprise that he sports their diva attributes.  huh.gif  While it gave me a little bit of pleasure to watch him get beat, I do like him, and think he's a great player. I would have loved the Seahawks to have kept him.

Well I'm supporting the 49ers. I don't harbor any dislike for them, especially now that Jim Harbaugh's gone. If the Chief's won the Patrick Mahomes worship will become insufferable. (I like Mahomes and think he's great, but could do with a little less media fawning.) I wouldn't mind the Chiefs winning though, because I'd like to see Andy Reid get a ring. Here's hoping for a good Super Bowl, no matter who wins.
