Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

Seahawks defence has been cursed with injuries since the Legion of Boom was disbanded and just two games into the season, both linebacker Bruce Irvin and safety Marquise Blair both suffered ACL injuries and are expected to miss the rest of the 2020 NFL season. :bang:

Bummer that Quinn Hughes had to settle as the runner-up for the Calder Memorial Trophy. :bang:

Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

Obviously, so much comparison is happening right now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41Y7OYLNR38 All social media is stating: January 2015: “Why would you throw it when you have an elite running back that can truck through all defenses?” September 2020: “Why would you run it when you have an MVP qu...

Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

Rematch of Super Bowl XLIX with lots of parallels between tonight's game and that ill-fated Super Bowl. Both games went down to the wire, but a different result. Patriots gets a TD, Seahawks tie the game, another Patriots TD, Seahawks tie for a 14-14 score at halftime. Seahawks take a lead in the th...

Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

Good, solid season opener win by the Seahawks as Russell Wilson was great as usual assisted by his running team. Defence was decent by forcing several fourth down turnovers, but more work needs to be done with the secondary as they still allowed Matt Ryan to make several long passes for 37 completio...

2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

Without any pre-season games, the 2020 NFL season starts tomorrow with the Seahawks playing this coming Sunday in Atlanta. Like many recent Seahawks, defense is always a problem and concern especially with the departure of Jadeveon Clowney. The team announced their three captains today - for the thi...

Re: 2019-20 Vancouver Canucks/NHL Season Thread

It looks like despite winning two games in the playoff series against the Canucks, the Blues decided that Jake Allen will still not be their starting goaltender next season and traded him off to the Canadiens for two draft picks (third and seventh rounds in 2020). -------- It's fair to say that Demk...

Re: 2019-20 Vancouver Canucks/NHL Season Thread

Even though the NHL is based out of Canada as are the two playoff venues, it looks like has followed suit of the protest of the Jacob Blake shooting by postponing all games.

While it will give the ;canucks: more rest, hopefully it won't ruin their strong momentum from game 2. :cr:

Re: TSN all-time Lions team

I am not the guy to research it, but it would be interesting to come up with an all time team based on who had the most number of all star selections at each position. As Lions of course, right? You can get a great list for both CFL and West Division Lions All Stars up to 2018 at: https://d3ham790t...

Re: TSN all-time Lions team

as per long-term vs. short-term, i think greatness over the short-term should be recognized more. the name that comes to mind with lions is mervyn fernandez but he's already on team......
