    The Seahawks are moving on to the conference title game against the #1 seeded Green Bay Packers and Coach Troy. To get there, they had to collide with the surging Eagles who were riding high from their huge win over the heavily favored Arizona Cardinals.

    The Seahawks received the ball first to start the game, and they started out quickly with a 20 yard scamper by Leon Washington. The Hawks would stall in FG range and settle for a FG, as they did on their next drive as well.

    With a 6-0 lead, the Eagles would find themselves driving into enemy territory when Earl Thomas delivered a crushing hit on Shady McCoy to jar the ball loose. The Seahawks would recover the ball and swing the momentum back in their favor. The Hawks would drive and finish it off with a 19 yard run by Leon Washington putting the Hawks up 13-0.

    Unlikely hero, Ricardo Lockette stepped up big, hauling in deep passes of 65 and 50 yards over Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Lockette, a 2nd year player out of D-II Fort Valley State was not expected to make an impact given his 5 reception total on the regular season. But Manning found the speed burner deep twice, once connecting on a deep TD pass that put the Seahawks up 20-0.

    Deep in the game, Chris Johnson sealed the victory with a pick-6 at the end of the 3rd quarter, helping the Seahawks stingy defense live up to it's name and secure a ticket to GB for the chance to go to the Super Bowl.

    Chris Clemons recorded 2 sacks, Bruce Irvin recorded 1 sack, and Marcus Trufant recorded an INT. The defense held the Eagles to 199 total yards, no TDs, and forced 3 turnovers.















    Troy, lets pray for no replacement officials. At least for your benefit.
