As much as I want to blame luck for the Seahawks' win over the Packers today, there's a better suspect.
The guilty party? Field goals.
Don't settle for field goals, or you are asking for trouble. Don't settle for field goals if you're playing to win (rather than simply to not lose). Finally, don't settle for field goals on the road, in the loudest stadium in the league.
John Elway would say that's not kicking and screaming. We disagree. It's kicking, but the wrong kind, and with a whimper.
