Moments in time…The Seattle Seahawks week that was

Another big win

I’m almost at a loss for words regarding the play of our Seattle Seahawks of late.

Put a terrible team in front of them, we destroy them. Put a bad team in front of them, we destroy them. Put the “best team” in the NFL in front of them, that’s right, we destroy them.

The San Francisco 49ers were thinking they could waltz right in to our house and walk away with a first round playoff bye, but I guess they forgot about the 12th Man and Seahawks.

As a result, the Seahawks are playoff bound with the victory over the Niners, and now, will become the biggest of Arizona Cardinals fans this side of the spot where the bandwagon fell over after their 4-0 start.

It won’t be easy, but it is capable of happening, but first we ourselves have to take care of business against those pesky St. Louis Rams.

With that, I give you my top 10!

10: Another day, another scoring record

Well it’s not really a record per say, but the with the 150 points scored over their last three games, it’s good enough for top 5 all time!

9: Who’s #1?

Going into the game on Sunday night, the 49ers and Seahawks were ranked #1, and #2, respectively for points scored against them.

Only one of the teams showed up defensively, the Seahawks, who jumped out to an early lead and never looked back.

Holding the Niners to two empty red zone attempts before finally allowing a TD pass late in the 4th quarter.

8: Two starters named to the Pro Bowl

The Pro Bowl starters were named on Wednesday afternoon, and as expected, the Seahawks will be sending at least a couple starters to the annual game, C Max Unger, and T Russell Okung.

7: Three more are heading there as well

In addition to the two starters named above, the NFC team will also consist of RB Marshawn Lynch, S Earl Thomas, and KR/RB Leon Washington.

It is yet to be mentioned when Russell Wilson will be named to the team, maybe they want him to cement his Rookie of the Year Award this weekend first.

6: Sherman shines in possible last game

Richard Sherman held nothing back on Sunday night, taking the opportunity to show the country what kind of player he is.

With a team high 5 tackles, a TD saving interception, and a recovered blocked FG attempt return for a TD, Sherman went out in style.

If it truly was his last game that is.

5: Beast Mode doesn’t disappoint

Once again, when the lights are shining on CenturyLink field, Marshawn Lynch does what he does best, runs the football.

With the first two scores on the day, including his first TD reception of the year, Lynch had the Hawks rolling before the halfway point of the 1st quarter.

4: Wilson sets personal record

Russell Wilson was a beast of his own Sunday night, throwing for 4 TD passes, a new personal best for him in his rookie season.

He now has the lead in TD passes over the other two Rookie of the Year prospects RGIII, and Andrew Luck.

3: Special teams come up huge

Big Red Bryant got his Big paw on a field goal attempt in the first half of the game, resulting in a TD from Richard Sherman.

Bryant somehow slipped right in between two lineman, turned a bit sideways, and raised his hand at the perfect time, deflecting the ball away to the safety of Sherman’s hands.

This play may have single handily knocked the sails out of the Niners’ sails.

2: Man of the Year

Seahawks tackle Russell Okung was named the teams Man of the Year, for his generous work in the community of greater Seattle.

1: Play of the week

Just like in last weeks segment, it’s hard to pick just one from a game with so much scoring, so I give you all four of Russell Wilson‘s TD passes.
