    Not me! I have NO PROBLEM winning on a missed chip shot. The Hawks failed to execute simple plays too. Take the bad snap and subsequent flubbed punt by Ryan early on that led to the Vikings first field goal. Had that simple play been executed properly, the Hawks might have won by a score of 10-6. You just never know.

    I'll happily take that win. :lol:

    No, you're right. You have to execute, and that kick was short, but not easy in terms of the conditions. It's why the Seahawks didn't even try a 46 yard opportunity earlier in the game. We had multiple bad snaps on punts. Executing anything was difficult. That final kick was into the wind - where he had missed in warm-ups - so that was probably going through his mind. His other kicks were with the wind at his back. Between the snap, the hold, the placement, the kick, and the pressure, a lot can go wrong in that situation.

    Still - tell me you weren't resigned to a Seahawk loss just before that final kick attempt...

    Yup, I was ready to go home and sulk. But... I was thrilled to see the missed F.G. I'm feeling good about our chances in Charlotte too!

    GO HAWKS!

    Poor kid. From what I understand he had a good season. No one will remember any of that though.

    He was great on field goals, but not so much on extra points, where he was 'only' 33 of 37. Nowadays, extra points are not as automatic, but his percentage was among the worst in the NFL.

    The FG he missed versus Seattle was shorter than an extra point try.

    What's your take on the move back to L.A.?

    i dont think a team that left a city should be allowed back to that city...you left once...and i also think a team should be associated with their original name for life...houston oilers should be the tennessee oilers...i dont care if the name doesnt fit the new city

    the rams left la and kept the rams name...thats cool...i think they started in cleveland

    The St. Louis Browns baseball team moved to Baltimore in 1954 and became the Orioles.

    I think they should go full retro and bring back the blue and yellow jerseys, and those helmets with the white horns painted on.

    I'm not a Rams fan, though.

    I'm not sure if it will ever work, but then I don't see the San Antonio Raiders working either. I do think LA and SA both could use a Pro NFL team, Texas has needed a Pro team for a long time, but I'm not sure about the Al Davis Raiders moving there.

    I hate it that the NFL can threaten to move a team unless a city gives in to their demands and builds a stadium that is better able to suit corporate partners. It's worse in this case because they were hellbent on getting a team to LA regardless of what fan base lost out. And there's no popular clamor for a team in LA, it's all about getting corporate sponsorship and TV money from that market, and the $500m moving fee the Rams paid to be divided by the owners.

    The people who pay hundreds to go to a game and sit out in the cold with nothing but a cup holder are completely immaterial to the league. Between the extended commercial breaks, the ridiculous referee conferences after ever play and the extended reviews on what or what isn't a catch ("Is that a touchdown? Can I celebrate? I can't tell from up here in the third bowl.") it is a worse fan experience every time I go. They should just play the games in a studio if all they want is TV money.

    Chip Kelly to coach the 49ers.

    Maybe Getbent can come back from his sabbatical, interested in his opinion on this...or any SF fans for that matter.

    Not worrying about that is one of the many great things about being a fan of the only publicly owned NFL team - the 13 championships are pretty nice too though.
