8-0 at home again! If the last month hasn’t had that something special’s brewing feeling for you, than how about going 8-0 at home for the first time since the Super Bowl year. Yes, that’s right, not only did the Seahawks run the table at home, but they also surpassed the 10 win mark for the first time since that fabled year as well. Something special is brewing indeed in Seattle this year, and now the Seahawks travel east to take on the Redskins in the first round of the playoffs. Robert Griffin the 3rd, vs. Russell Wilson, Rd. 1. All three super rookies made the playoffs this year, but only one of them tied the rookie TD passing mark, our very own Russell Wilson. But enough about that, let’s get on with the game balls! Offensive game ball This is a split decision based solely on the milestones each player surpassed today. Wilson, of course with the tying of Peyton Manning’s rookie TD pass record, and Marshawn Lynch for becoming only the third Seahawks player to reach the 1500 yard plateau. Lynch joins Shaun Alexander, and Chris Warren as the only Hawks to reach that special feat. Wilson had the toughest circumstances on a football field in a month on Sunday, but like the poised veteran of 15 previous games that he is, chomped down and led this team to a victory. Russell Wilson passed his way into the record books on Sunday. (Photo: Bleacher Report) Besides his lone TD pass to Michael Robinson, he also ran one in from a yard out. Lynch finished the day with 100 yards on 18 carries, and let’s us believe there is a chance to win this whole thing this year. Receiving stats were as follows: Golden Tate 3/105, Doug Baldwin 2/19, Anthony McCoy 1/49 (longest pass on the day), Michael Robinson 3/33 (TD), Zach Miller 3/18, Marshawn Lynch 2/14, Robert Turbin 1/12. Rushing stats were of course Lynch with the 100, (long 24), Wilson 10/58 (TD), and Robert Turbin 5/-5. A rough day for Turbin. Defensive game ball The case could be made for Richard Sherman to get this game ball for his interception and 3 assisted tackles, but I’m sticking with the milestone’s on this one and giving it to Bobby Wagner. Wagner finished the game with 5 tackles, and finished the year with 140, good enough for 7th in the NFL. Not bad for a rookie out of Utah State who only had one scholarship offer his senior year of high school. Just proves the PC/JS can really scout the talent when they see it. Other defensive stats were: Kam Chancellor 3 solo, 4 assist tackles, KJ Wright 3 solo 6 assist, Marcus Trufant 2 solo, Chris Clemons 2 solo, Brandon Mebane 2 solo, Bruce Irvin 1 solo, Red Bryant 1 solo, 4 assist. The Hawks couldn’t get to anybody in the backfield on the day, but still were strong enough when it mattered, and didn’t give up the desperation play at the end of the game. It was nice to see that the D still could make a difference even when the game was not out of hand. Stats Box Score That’s all she wrote for the regular season. But now the real season begins, and the Hawks have their sights on returning to the Super Bowl for the first time in 7 seasons.
