You forgot the bold part... ^

If I were Seattle I'd be worried about not having beat SF in SF since 2008.

heh ... i forgot that the visiting team is usually spotted 21 points to help offset the home field advantage

RW has went once to SF and lost a 13-6 game on a Thursday game after playing the Patriots the prior Sunday ........ SF isn't exactly a tough venue either (unless you are in the stands)

Then again, that 7 point loss is the worse defeat Seattle has had in over 2 seasons so maybe you are onto something ..............

7-1 with such a high powered offense attack... I'd book my February NYC reservations now if I were you.

Dallas has no one to blame but their stupid pass defensive schemes.
Well, for one thing, Megatron is 6'5 235 lbs. The biggest Dallas corner is Carr at 6'1 205 lbs. All the other corners are under 6-ft, 200lbs.

Went 10-3 but hit the 80 mark...80-40 for the year. I picked Seattle to win but picked the Rams to make the spread as St Louis is always a tough place for Seattle to play in.

I don't think it was necessary to tackle Johnson just slow him down and break his passing routes, is that too much to ask? Sure Johnson was going to get pass yardage, but 239 yards?

You want to play bump and run against someone who's bigger, faster, and can jump higher than you and everyone in that secondary? He will simply bowl you over or blow by you.

Not to mention that Stafford has shown he'd throw it to CJ whether or not he's covered, double-, triple-, or quadruple-teamed.

Calvin Johnson highlights week 8 vs Cowboys (329 yards) - YouTube

At :25, 1:03, and 1:29 Carr tried to bump Megatron.

Hi, Gang! Waiting to go ashore at Sydney, Nova Scotia! I ended up 12-1, surprise, surprise (for me, that is)!

Overall I'm 71-49, near as I can tell!
