Just looked at the Seahawks schedule, and man are they going to be in for a battle. They played two playoff teams with good defenses in the regular season and both were losses (Jags and Skins). Lets break down the rest of their games:
Division Games (Non of these teams won more than 6 games):
vs Arizona Won 37-12 and Won 33-19.
vs St. Louis Won 37-31 and 31-16.
vs San Francisco Won 27-25 and Won 41-3.
Non Division games:
vs Atlanta Won 21-18 -- They barely won this one.
vs Houston Won 42-10 -- They beat up on this team but so did everyone else.
vs Dallas Won 13-10 -- They barely won this one. Dallas f'ed up on the last play.
vs Giants Won 24-21 -- Very controversial game but they won this one fair and square.
vs Philadelphia Won 42-0 -- Philly just wanted to be charitable, they turned it over on almost every play.
vs Tennessee Won 28-24 -- Another ugly win, almost lost this one too.
vs Indianapolis Won 28-13 -- Indy had, what, 7 of their best player sitting out?
vs Green Bay Lost 17-23 -- They played great and then rested their player after half time.
Don't get me wrong, the Seahawks are a good team but I am not buying all the hype. They beat all the teams they were suppose to beat and now its time to beat contenders. Personally I don't see that happening.
Moral of the story? Don't buy the Seahawk's Kool Aid.
They are well rested, and that's the biggest thing they have going for them. That means bad things for us on the ground, though it potentially means good things for us if we can pressure Hasselbeck and take advantage of a little receiver rust.
If Brunell can get his passing a little better, and Moss beat the secondary, and Portis can run well we should be fine. The D and Greg Williams should mastermind this thing this week. I was more worried about the Tampa game.
Good post, Saden. The Seahawks are definitely beatable. We'll need a complete effort. Can this finally be the game we put Moss back to return punts... PLEASE???
Yea i'd put him back there for punts , why not Antonio keeps fumbling we'll have too

Sean Taylor and Shawn Springs are well rested for this one. Taylor has offensive coordinator's changing their plays because of his disruptive style of play. Taylor will be our fourth LB and CB. This made it very difficult for Shawn Alexander (80 yds.), Tiki Barber (89 yds.) and Julius Jones 57 yds to run wild. We will stop Shawn Alexander down for the first half. That's when we have to put up the neccessary points. Holgrem has a tendency to sit Alexander down for the half when he's prevented from running in the first half. He then puts Alexander back into the game in the second half to get him going again.
