Lions lose division to Packers, 31-24, stumble to Seattle for playoffs

He went 3 of 4 for 29 yards and a TD, so we should expect a ton of trade rumors this offseason surrounding QB needy teams.

Home opponents (*playoff team): Arizona Cardinals, Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Houston Texans*, Indianapolis Colts, Atlanta Falcons*.

Maybe we deserve it.

Two other things that aid in Seattle's strong home-field advantage are the rainy weather associated with the Pacific Northwest and the distance from any other National Football League city. But it still sucks to be going through such a bad period, especially when there is no fix in sight. They won't have the services of Carlos Hyde so the run game will take a hit, but the 49ers always play the Seahawks tough.

"I tried to find every excuse to justify coming back", he told KJR-AM on Tuesday.

For the 49ers, that time is far away. And it's because of that performance that we've got high marks all around for what Seattle did on Sunday. Meanwhile, reports surfaced on Saturday that the 49ers will move on from GM Trent Baalake and head coach Chip Kelly following this game today.

Asked why the offer wasn't communicated properly, Carroll said, "I'm not going into it".

WAGNER'S RECORD: Seattle middle linebacker Bobby Wagner has already set a franchise record for tackles in a single-season with 155.

Christine Michael, who's no longer with the team, is their leading rusher this season, with 469 yards on 117 carries and six touchdowns before he was placed on waivers November 15. While Hauschka went four-for-four on field goal attempts on a day when the Seahawks had little room to spare in what proved to be a victory the club really did need. Their last three games came against playoff teams, and the Lions ended the season on a three-game losing streak.

"All these worries you guys have (about how the team is playing), I ain't got them", Carroll said.

Look back, in awe, if you will, at the seasons when the Seahawks were fashioning the early part of this run of success, when Lynch carried the ball 1,060 times through the 2012-14 regular seasons and postseasons.

"Any special teams play that comes on a TV, I automatically lock in on it", Ott said.

The last time the Detroit Lions won a playoff game, George Bush was president. The Lions offense should have a chance to put up some points, unlike last year's trip to CenturyLink.

Two plays later, Wilson scrambled and threw it up for grabs for tight end Jimmy Graham, who boxed out San Francisco safety Antoine Bethea to make the catch at the 1.

Offensively, the Seahawks are averaging 22.1 points and 357.2 total yards (257.8 in passing and 99.4 in rushing).

The lead was short-lived after the 49ers responded with a 75-yard scoring drive on their second possession. We can debate, just don't make things personal. "There was a time that Golden didn't know that we made him an offer and he thought we didn't and that's because it wasn't communicated", Carroll said.
