3rd and Longshot

Dear NFL teams:

If you want to defeat the Seattle Seahawks, just get them into a third and long situation and then wait for the draw play. Don't worry, you won't have to wait very long; they usually just pause for a second, as if that's going to fool anyone. And in case you're thinking I'm just putting this out as part of an elaborate rouse ... I'm not. I've just seen them do it over and over and over again, the exact same way, without variation, for decades. It's gotten to the point of absurdity, "There's no way they go with the draw play?! I mean, no one is THAT predictable???" Wrong.

Also, the green outline on the numbers isn't working for me--they appear as if there's something wrong, like some ghosting on the TV screen. That's not really a way to defeat them; I just don't like it.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the officiating. A friend watching the game was pretty upset and said about the replacement refs, "This is by far the worst officiating of a game I've ever seen in my life."

To which I replied, "So you never saw Super Bowl XL where the refs totally handed Pittsburgh a championship (seriously, who calls "low block" on the QB) as a fare-thee-well to Jerome Bettis?"

But that's not really "defeating" the Seahawks. That's just using the officials to screw them over. So I guess what I'm saying is these replacement refs are ahead of schedule.
