    Alright so anyone want to try and beat the Seahawks or should we just not play them? I see tons and tons of posters saying this upcoming game is a big LOSS waiting to happen. Well I have some thoughts on that.

    First thing we need to do is know who we are. Ryan Fitzpatrick is at best a game manager, so in order for him to play well he needs help. Last week vs the Chiefs we had 8 drops by the receivers. If that happens again we will absolutely lose this game.

    Mike Munhcak has officially taken Kenny Britt out of the starting lineup, he'll continue to play, just wont start, so right there is good news.

    Other suggestions I have are to feature more 2 TE sets. Fitzpatrick is by no means a sitting duck, he can get on his horse and go, but that's one old broken down horse, if we have to rely on scrambles, things could get ugly, so protect the QB with an extra blocker. 2 TE sets will also help jump start the running game.

    The last change Im hoping on offesne for is some more pistol formation or shotgun. Seattle's defense is aggressive, if the QB doesn't have time to process what he sees, he's doomed.

    Then on defense we HAVE TO flock to the ball and gang tackle. Marshawn Lynch will drag 4 defenders 10-yards on his back, if we dont wrap up in bunches, we're in for a long day.

    So there you go, pretty simple stuff if we can execute. IDK if we'll actually do any of these things but it makes sense to me.

    Well not exactly. Most weeks you can get by on I-Formation or you can throw deep, but not this week.

    Each weeks game plan is about the same, but with a wrinkle or two diffident than the week before.

    Seattle's DB's make it especially hard to go over the top, so we have to adjust accordingly. My keys to success focus in on that.

    The key to beating Seattle is clearly not playing in Seattle. A totally different team when they're on the road.

    Too bad for us.

    the big key is communication. It is going to be loud there and we need all our players on the same page. We need to have a good set of hand signals for this game more than any other.

    I dont see that being a huge issue. yes its loud as hell in there, but we dont rely on verbal communications as much as we have in the past. We're using more hand signals now.
