    think he was trying to backspin it but he didn't get underneath it enough

    It’s why no one attempts drop kicks. It is very hard to get the bounce you want with the modern pointy ball.

    I don't like those onside kick rules at all.

    Seattle won by two. Let’s not pretend this was some sort of ass kicking.

    I've seen that work before. You backspin and try to stick it in no man's land. Considering how little time they had, if they recover it they're on a real short field. It was a good idea, but he either hit it too hard or didn't get underneath it enough.

    I think he was trying to get it high in the air and just kicked it too hard

    I have to think an injured Janicowski could have pulled off s better attempt.

    I guess an interesting idea would be to bomb it into the rafters to turn it into a crazy jump ball.

    It wasn't an ass-kicking, but it wasn't that close either. Dallas's defense shut them down pretty much until that last garbage time TD w/2 pointer. Out-rushed them 164-73 and held Seattle to under 300 yards of offense.

    Oh and Dallas had 23 first downs to Seattle's 11. Honestly if Seattle doesn't get that fluky interception in the end zone earlier on, this game is probably over a lot earlier.

    So if Philly beats Chicago, Dallas plays the Rams? And if Chicago beats Philly, Dallas plays the Saints?

    I think they’d have a shot vs the Rams. They’ve looked colder the 2nd half of the year and New Orleans is just a crappy place to have to play a road game

    Its like a sand wedge. You want to cradle it underneath a little bit on impact so it backspins and comes back to you when it hits the ground, but to get it to go anywhere you have to put a little bit of power into it. If you miss and hit it a little bit too high, it takes off on you.

    The Cowboys defense absolutely kicked the Seahawks ass, whether you wanna blame the playcalling, the o line or whatever. At least in my opinion.

    I’m not gonna say I don’t think the Seahawks had a chance and that anyone who voted for them is an idiot, I’m just shocked that they got so many votes when the overall talent advantage that Dallas has is clear.

    Personally, I think a lot of the Seattle votes came from people wearing Russell wilson blinders, without realizing that the Seahawks run a 90s offense (Cowboys do too but the Seahawks D ain’t the Cowboys D) and that their defense actually wasn’t that good this year.

    Dak made some big plays in the second half.

    Seahawks exceeded expectations this year but this still has to hurt. I think they win this game if they ran a better offense.

    Saints will play lowest remaining seed. Rams will play highest remaining seed.

    So you could have Eagles at Saints or Cowboys at Saints, but not Bears at Saints. You could have Cowboys at Rams, or Bears at Rams, but not Eagles at Rams.

    Where is Seattle’s advantage aside from QB? Dallas’ personnel on D is either 1 or 2 in the league, their o line is very good, Elliot is amazing. Having 2 very good backs is great but it doesn’t compare to having Zeke. The receivers are about even, TE is about even.

    They played well down the stretch and got into the playoffs so it didn't go as poorly as most expected but what we saw today was exactly what everyone was afraid of with the OC and offense. I'd say there's close to no chance of a change because this is what Carroll wanted but I really hope they don't waste Wilson again next year.
