C-Links from around the web following Sunday's loss to the Colts

Here are a few links from some of the most interesting stories that circulated around the web after Sunday’s loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

From Sports Illustrated: The Colts made a statement beating the Seahawks.

 …the Colts are 4-1 and at the top of the AFC South. They moved to that mark by knocking off the previously unbeaten Seattle Seahawks 34-28 in a game that made a clear statement that this franchise is built to win now and into the future.

From Seahawks.com: Jermaine Kearse continues to make big plays.

On any given Sunday, Jermaine Kearse made a couple of plays that would have been the difference between the Seahawks winning and, well, not winning.

From ESPN.com: Sunday’s loss a tough one for Seattle to swallow.

Receiver Golden Tate shook his head and said, “I feel like we just lost the Super Bowl.”

From The Wall Street Journal: Luck and Wilson shining bright as young quarterbacks.

After Andrew Luck’s Colts edged Russell Wilson’s Seahawks 34-28 on Sunday, NFL fans can’t be blamed if they’re wishing for a rematch that isn’t scheduled until 2017.

From Field Gulls: The Seahawks are overrated.

 …the refs were not the reason the Seahawks lost this game [to the Colts].

    Completely disagree with Field Gulls. The refs WERE the reason the Hawks lost the game. Let us count the ways:

    –Phantom push off on Tate (flagged, Hawks scored anyway but complete phantom call).
    –Real push offs vs Reggie Wayne (twice not called and cost SEA 2 pt conversion)
    –PI’s (3 obvious against Colts in final two drives of the game not called while 2 of the exact same types of PI’s were called against SEA on 3rd down in the 4th quarter and both eventually cost SEA 3 points that should have been punts)
    –Clear recovery of blocked punt in the endzone (YES it was clear, there’s NO WAY you could’ve switched it to a safety had it been called the other way and the ball was in plain view and didn’t move after the left hand touched it. Clearly his entire body was in the field of play and therefore constitutes a touchdown). Cost the Hawks 5 points and means the Hawks never would have trailed in the game.
    –That my friends is a 13 point swing. Do the math

    That said, this was not necessarily something that doesn’t happen in favor of the Seahawks in Seattle and Indy is a deserving team for fighting back. A realist didn’t expect the Hawks to go undefeated and the lesson learned is probably more valuable here with a loss. You have to finish teams in the NFL, you cannot relax and the Hawks definitely made that mistake. In the long run it’s not a Super Bowl changing game, the Hawks are clearly still the class of the NFC (after ATL’s loss to NYJ) and will easily recover.
