Although I picked Atlanta to win, here is where I think Seattle made a fatal decision that isn't really being discussed.

After Longwell kicks the field goal to make it 28-27, I was listening on the radio and they said that if the Seahawks were smart, they should try to kick the ball as straight down the middle or sort of short punt it if you will so that it eats up clock time and Atlanta would have to run to get the ball.

Instead, they kick it right to Rogers who gains a ton of yardage on the return. Just my opinion but I agreed with the radio announcers.

He only got to the 28 and the clock went from 31 seconds down to 25. Seattle lost this game because they gave up 41 yards in 2 plays and allowed the kicker to get 2 chances at it.

Well, that too of course lol. But I still thought it was pretty foolish they didn't short punt it.

What do you mean by short punt? Pop it into the air? Odds are the guy under it would have caught it around the 25 and even less time would have rolled off the clock. Seattle played way too soft in coverage on those 2 throws and Ryan executed the plays the way he should have.

It was a bad job by Carroll giving the guy a practice kick, especially a kicker who's been in the league forever. Also, Pete screwed up by not attempting the 65 yarder, i thought that was a no brainer to attempt, you give it a shot, even if its 1% its still a better chance than a hail mary.

We'll see. Seattle is only getting better. Their best players (Wilson, Lynch, Rice, Sherman, Thomas, Okung, Unger, Browner, Wagner) are all in their mid 20's and primed.

And I actually like Seahawks more than Niners.

you are talking about the squib kick. Atlanta tried a squib kick, look how that turned out.

The clock doesn't start until a player touches the ball. If they kick it short, then it's likely that less time would have run off the clock.

Both Seattle and the Rams will be making moves both are younger and will only get better i think Seattle really gives them a run for division title next year .

I know. But when a team is defending 2-time division champs and have at the very least gotten to back to back NFC Championship games, they're the team to beat.

Kaepernick-25
Crabtree-25
Davis-28
Iupati-25
Staley-28
Bowman-24
Brooks-28
Aldon Smith-23
Willis-27
Whitner-27
Goldston-28

49ers aren't exactly pushing up daisies.

Whole-heartedly agree, but things change. If I had to place a bet it would be on Seattle winning the division.

The NFC west has a chance to be the best division in football next year...ALL the teams are young and talented.

Well I wouldn't go that far for the Cards, but the 49ers,Seahawks, and Rams look to be very tough teams next year.

You know, I've seen two repeats of this game now and the end of the game was actually fairly poorly managed by the Falcons wasn't it?

I mean to start with, they couldn't stop the Seahawks, so in reality they probably should have let Seattle score once the penalty put the ball at the 1 and a half yard line. Imagine Lynch doesn't get in and that's ruled a fumble recovered by Seattle, Seattle would have 2nd and goal from within the 1 yard line and could burn more time before scoring through a QB sneak or otherwise - to the point of the game being over.

The second thing is that Atlanta seemed unprepared on what to do and unsure of how much time was left once Gonzalez caught the pass that took them in FG range. Ryan wanted to spike the football. Smith rushed to find a ref to call a timeout immediately. In reality, of course, the Falcons would have been wise to let at least another 5 seconds pass and then calmly call a timeout by sticking with an official at the sideline (rather than having to make a panicked run toward one). The way they did it, they gave Seattle time to run two plays.

And of course the squib kick was basically an onside kick which gave Seattle much better field position than they should have had.

Three things that didn't end up making any difference but could have had a huge effect.

So, in your opinion, SF is the team to beat but you think Seattle will win the division?

Fair enough.

I completely agree. It seemed as though the Falcons and their coaching staff became distracted once the 4th quarter started.
