    they should of not of called it, but they did not really need to convert the chances of making it to the playoffs, but it still would of been cool if they had at least made it, let alone win it.

    Hey, I know...with everyone stacked in the box, lets run a slow developing run play!

    That's SURE to get us a first down!....

    Any other time we sneak that ball. Any other time we convert. Too bad we're wanting a better draft pick instead of wins.


    Not only was it entirely STUPID to go for it on that 4th, but the playcall was STUPID aswell. It'd be different if we tried something that had a slight chance of working...but nope....wonder why we'd do such a thing?....Maybe so our players buy into us "trying to win" when we're doing the exact opposite.

    then they did it again...when they should've kicked a fg.

    Most the time that's Fisher's style. He didn't try to win this game. Sorry folks. He tried to blow it in the end.

    what was STUPID was their 3 play 80 yard drive for a td that destroyed any momentum we had.

    and I'm not sure but I believe the missed 4th down was intended to go right up the gut but the line got blown up - not necessarily "a slow developing run play"

    they played a very good team today and probably could have one had a few things gone differently I can agree with you on that. The throwing the game stuff is just bs and pointless to even throw out there.

    if we didn't try to win the game, dont you think we would have let them keep scoring after they went up 14-0?

    Hello guys, Seahawk fan here from Anchorage. McNair played very well against our weak coverage, and this is our first game with out a recorded sack all year.

    I knew coming into this game it would be close, every game Jeff has coached against us, we've only managed to slip by with 3 points.

    Like a few of my Seahawk brothers said, the Titans would have probably won the game if you went for a couple of field goals instead of going for it on 4th down.

    I'm glad Jarrett Payton got his 2nd TD, just not against us hehe.

    See ya in 2009 at Qwest field.

    I liked the call to go for it on 4th down. I didn't like the play, but I liked going for it. It was at a point in the game where it seemed like we could've won the game with a TD score at that point and they went for it.

    Not that I think Seattle would've rolled over - but like Wychek says on his radio show -there are points in time where you're almost able to break a team's will, and I think Seattle could've felt they were beat if we scored a TD.

    Hind-sight is 20/20.

    If the play had worked, you'd be hailing Fisher and Co. as geniouses.


    Move on. It was a hard faught game, and this team won respect with me.

    I just don't understand the play calling on the two 4th downs we didn't convert. The first one, they only had four guys on the line of scrimmage. We could have easily ran a sneak for the 1st down. The second one, it would appear that McNair had the option to go to Scaife or Troupe. McNair even said he decided to go to Scaife immediately and stuck with him hoping he could make a play. Why not look for the second option? He wasn't under any pressure.

    That's shocking he looked to Scaife and not Troupe, who had one of the best games of his career today and was on fire.
