  3. Did Sherman decline to comment because he was busy, wanted to celebrate, or seemed worried about his hip? When we hear “hip” around these parts, I think all of us worry more than we would have just months ago.

    Glad to hear that it wasn’t a hip for Mebane like originally stated on t.v. (for the exact reasons stated above). Hopefully, the week off does him good. We can’t lose that guy.

    Glad to see Okung make it through the game healthy. Hurting that same toe had me worried. Now he’s got an extra week, like everyone else, to get rid of the minor and nagging stuff.

    Worst fan blog in seattle history:
    2013-TNT- Thank god it’s over-Todd was solid!great job

  5. CHawkFanIn9erLand says:

    Nice article, thanks Todd. I’ve enjoyed your work. Much appreciated.

    Also, thanks to the passionate fans that have made this blog an experience. Happy New Year.

  6. thursday says:

    Sherman’s had the hip listed as a reason for limited and dnp for some weeks now. Hope it’s not serious

  7. MoSeahawk12 says:

    Thanks for the great work and impressive list of team facts Todd. Way to hang in there with a split personality group on this blog that nobody has to follow, read or post if they don’t want to.

    “TBA at No. 1 Seattle Seahawks, Saturday Jan. 11 at 1:35 p.m. ET on FOX”

    1:35 ET – is that right? A 10:35am at home?

  9. Todd Dybas says:

    Hey, Sherminator.

    It’s 1:35 p.m., Pacific. Sorry. Thought I cleared all those out.

  10. Good job TruBlu!

  11. I’m very happy the game is on 1/11; I have a commitment on 1/12 7 don’t want to miss it!

    Re next year’s schedule: looks like only 2 10 am starts!! (or is Carolina a 10 am game also?). That’s actually a pretty great schedule for having the best record in football!

  12. baseballforever says:

    More bulletin board material. The Seahawks have the best record in the NFL. what do you think of the fact that we do not get a primetime game in the playoffs?

    It’s truly amazing to me that we were so dominant at int’s this year and led the league, yet the 84′ team accomplished the same feat… PLUS 10!

  14. freedom_X says:

    It’s probably a shock to many Seahawk followers that Seneca Wallace is so high on the several of the career records for Seattle.

    I was surprised to see the 2005 team so high on the rushing defense charts. I had forgotten that. I suppose that was because the 2005 offense often had opposing teams deep in a hole and forced them to throw instead of run.

  15. freedom_X says:

    The 2013 team has the best defense (especially because offenses are more potent today than in 1984) but the 1984 pass rush was a whole level better than the current unit (2 ends with double-digit sacks and a nose tackle that also neared double-digits in that category too.)

    The 1984 secondary was not quite as good as the current one, but still within the same area code (including an unquestioned defensive MVP who dominated both pass and run.)So the two factors combined equaled lots of interceptions.

    It was older and more veteran which helped with the interception numbers (anticipating and jumping routes), but not as good at flat out shutting down receivers.

  16. The 1984 defense was better. Unfortunately, they hadnt won as players, and to hear members of that D tell about the season, their downfall was in being insecure and not knowing how good they really were. They were intimidated by the more veteran, successful teams they played against, and when they got on a skid, they fell apart, only to pull it back together before ultimately being outgunned in the Championship Game.

    Chuck Knox used to fire himself up with Scotch and come downstairs and get all fiery and wound up trying his damndest to get the players to believe how good they were, and how good they could be. He wasnt totally successful.

    Those 38 interceptions are an amazing stat, as are the sacks.

    The 2005 defense had Tubbs at DT and was actually very good vs the run. Plus, we ran the Tampa 2 with its known holes–a bend but dont break passing D–so teams could move the ball on us through the air, at least until the red zone. Then they had to settle for field goals.

  17. I think this D is finally hitting their stride. They actually suffered due to having too many good players, and finding the right schemes and rotations for these guys took a long time. But I think they’ve finally found a way to rotate most guys in, and maximize the group. The only guys getting the shaft are Schofield and Jason Hill. But they just got outcompeted.

    I expect we’ll see the D-line continue to dominate. McDonald is now a beast, and Mebane hasnt played this well since the Pats game last year. McDaniel is playing lights out as well, and Bennett is unblockable much of the time. If KJ can come back, this D is ridiculous, and may eventually put the 1984 D to shame.
