2012 hasn't accomplished anything. So i'll go with the Superbowl team, the more efficient and prolific passer, and an MVP.

I think on talent alone (besides the 2 HOF'ers) the 2012 team is better. But the 2005 team was perfect for our scheme. I fell in love with the WCO because we ran it so well. That line was ridiculous, as well.

I wish Stevens wasn't a head case. Had talent that would've kept him here for years to come. Those drops though......almost as bad as some of the calls made.

Those are good questions, but two very different questions.... I would say the "better team" was the 05' squad. but, the team I think will win in a head-to-head match-up would be the '12 squad, for sure.. and of course my opinion will change if this '12 squad makes it to the super bowl this year.....


Now, here's a question. Who is the better 'Seahawks Head Coach' Carroll or Holmgren?


IMHO, I would have to say Carroll, He has this teams playing better than any team Holmgren ever had while in Seattle, even the '05 super bowl team.

05 would win, no way we could stop that run game and clemons would be BLANKED. We would also struggle to stop that pass-rush

We wouldn't have to stop the run game of the '05 team just contain it to win the game, AP had 182 rushing yards against the Hawks earlier in the year, but we won that game..

and, I don't think the '05 team's WRs could beat the '12 teams secondary.. also, the '05 defense would have its issues of their own trying to stop Lynch.

Cmon son. That west coast offense is exactly the type of dink and dunk game we couldn't stop. We'd get toasted on third down

I think it'd be an amazing head-to-head matchup.

Bobby Engram would kill the '12 D on every 3rd down play from the slot.

That'd be a heck of a game to watch, I'd have to go with the 05 team. To dominant on the O line, Engram would be very hard for the 12 team to stop as well. I loved Joe Jurevicius that year, seemed like he was always making big plays in the passing game.

'05...'12 couldnt stop that run game and Matty would pick this team apart underneath.

We would have trouble dealing with that DL as well. That secondary was also pretty dang solid.

Our current day receiving core is better and I'd take Lynch over an '05 Alexander even, but that it's on offense. As much as Wilson is loved, he's not on an '05 Hass level. Hass was killing it that year. That defense in '05 was not as talented as ours, but they got a lot more out of it. Bryce Fisher and Bernard were huge glue guys for us in the pass rush and Lofa was a boss year 1.

I'd take the '05 team.

I would also take Lynch, but with that said, I would take the 2005 rushing offense. Lynch is the better runner, but what that team could do on the ground was unprecedented.

If that is directed at me, I'm not disagreeing with that, I am agreeing with it.
