    ow when they fell to the San Francisco 49ers in overtime of Week 15 Frank Clark Color Rush Jersey , however, what could prove to be an even bigger blow to the team’s postseason aspirations moving forward was the loss of right guard Jordan Simmons. Simmons was claimed off waivers from the Oakland Raiders at the end of training camp, and he has filled in admirably for D.J. Fluker both times Fluker was out with injury after Simmons’ addition to the roster. Obviously, there’s still a lot of time to see what Simmons’ status will be for Week 16 against the Kansas City Chiefs, with a playoff spot once again on the line for Seattle. However, against the 49ers on Sunday, the Hawks had to dig deep into their bag of reserve linemen, as Simmons injured his knee late in the third quarter, forcing Seattle to use its third string right guard, Ethan Pocic. That was less than perfect, and led to one of the most pointed critiques fans are likely to ever see of a young player from Pete Carroll. That’s the kind of criticism that Carroll typically reserves for his more seasoned veterans, and so it is quite a shock to hear him so bluntly assess the play of a second year player. Obviously, it came on the heels of a frustrating loss that could have secured the Hawks return to the playoffs, however, that doesn’t make it any less of a surprise. In any case, Bradley McDougald also left the game with a knee injury. For what is the first time I recall, Pete Carroll also let slip that the knee issue McDougald has been battling all season is patellar tendinitis.That’s not exactly good news, because that’s not an issue that is likely to get better over the next few weeks, and I’d guess that is something McDougald battles all the way through the end of the season, regardless of how deep into the playoffs the Seahawks make it. Thus, it’s on to Week 16, where the Seahawks will once again attempt to clinch a playoff spot, but in Week 16 the Hawks will need help to clinch. Against the 49ers all the Hawks needed was a win to get in because a win would have not only given the team 9 wins, it would have clinched a better conference record than the Washington Redskins. With AFC foe Kansas City on the schedule in Week 16, it takes a Seattle win and a Washington loss to secure a playoff spot. What you’re about to read is completely nerdy and a very obvious case of total randomness involving small sample sizes. I don’t really care Dion Jordan Color Rush Jersey , I’m just here to point out facts while taking you through Seattle Seahawks history.Sunday’s 43-16 win against the San Francisco 49ers saw Bobby Wagner have another fantastic game, Russell Wilson throw for four touchdowns, and Jaron Brown and Tyler Lockett break their previous career-highs for receiving TDs. That’s the eighth time in franchise history that they’ve played a game on December 2nd, and they’re 7-1. That one loss coming way back in 1979, which was their first December 2nd game ever.Just within the Pete Carroll/Russell Wilson era, we certainly know a few more memorable December 2nd games. December 2nd 2012 - The 6-5 Seahawks traveled to Chicago to take on the 8-3 Bears, and a loss for Seattle would’ve pretty much been game over for their playoff hopes given the strength of the NFC that year. By now, you know the story. Down 14-10, Russell Wilson engineers an 80-yard drive against that vaunted Chicago defense, throwing the go-ahead touchdown to Golden Tate with under a minute to go. Unfortunately, Gus Bradley defenses do not like holding onto leads, so the game went into overtime. This only made the legend of Russ grow even more, as he went out and did the damn thing a second time, sending the Seahawks to a 23-17 overtime road win and the start of something truly special.December 2nd, 2013 - The 10-1 Seahawks hosted the 9-2 New Orleans Saints in what was billed as the biggest nationally televised game of the season. That high-flying Saints offense and the all-time great Seahawks defense would surely produce a classic, right?Well yeah, only if you were a Seahawks fan.Russell Wilson threw for over 300 yards, three touchdowns, no turnovers, and the defense limited the Saints to just 188 yards of offense, with Drew Brees throwing for just 147 yards on 37 attempts. The final score? Seahawks 34 Saints 7 and a massive push towards the #1 seed. In the long-term, this also contributed to the Saints blowing the NFC South lead and having to go exclusively on the road for their postseason, which ended in Seattle.Want to go back a little further? Sure, why not?December 2nd, 2007 - Before there was Bobby Wagner Tedric Thompson Color Rush Jersey , there was Lofa Tatupu. I remember those Lofa Tatupu vs. Patrick Willis debates that were had between Seahawks and 49ers fans. In the 2007 season, Seattle had a 10 AM game at the Philadelphia Eagles, knowing a win would put them on the cusp of clinching the NFC West. It was a back-and-forth affair despite the Eagles playing AJ Feeley at QB, but you know who saved the day? Lofa Tatupu and his three interceptions, the last of which preserved a 28-24 win.As for those other December 2nd wins? They didn’t carry nearly the significance of the victories in 2007, 2012, 2013, and even 2018, but here’s a brief summary:December 2nd, 2001 - A 13-10 overtime nailbiter against the San Diego Chargers at Husky Stadium. The Seahawks ultimately missed the playoffs at 9-7, unable to get the outside help they needed in Week 17, but Rian Lindell redeemed himself after an end-of-regulation miss forced OT.December 2nd, 1990 - A 13-10 overtime win at home vs. the Houston Oilers in Chuck Knox’s final season as Seahawks head coach gave them a critical head-to-head tiebreaker, but Seattle failed to qualify at 9-7 due to a three-way tiebreaker involving the Oilers and Pittsburgh Steelers, in which the Seahawks had an inferior conference record to Houston.December 2nd, 1984 - A 38-17 rout of the Detroit Lions at the KingDome. Prior to 2005 and then this current stretch under Carroll and Wilson, 1984 was the gold standard for Seahawks football, and their 12th and final regular season win that year saw Dave Krieg throw for 5 touchdown passes, with Steve Largent catching a pair of them on his way to an 8-catch, 104-yard performance. Unfortunately, 12-4 wasn’t enough to win the AFC West, as the Denver Broncos beat them in Week 17.So there you have it. Please root for the Seahawks to be on Monday Night Football for December 2nd, 2019, because that’s when you don’t want to mess with this team.
