Hawks At Bears Preview
This week, we will go into the most important and quite possibly, toughest game of the year. Once again the ailing Hawks will not go on to the battle field with all weapons at hand. Seattle lost its league MVP rushing and touchdown champion.
"Alexander The Great" will be M.I.A. for the first time in his tenure as a Seahawk. His streak of 100 consecutive games played will come to a screeching halt despite his claims of a miraculous intervention from the man above. The man at the top -Mike Holmgren- say's "God doesn't run this ship, I do" and your sitting this one out. Dispite Shauns claims of being ready to play.
It seems that even the sports radio hosts of the Seattle area are choosing the Bears as the victors of this meeting. Which I find a bit odd considering the history of events that that have followed the Hawks on Sunday night football and considering their record against Chicago.
The Mike Holmgren led Seahawks are 6-2 on Sunday night games and Seattle is 14-8 all time under the Sunday night lights.
The Seahawks are heading for their ninth meeting of the Bears and hold a 6-2 edge against Chicago. Seahawks are 3-1 at home and 3-1 at Soldier Field.
So whats all the anti Seattle fuss about? Seems the Bears taunted defense and a no name QB, Rex Grossman, has gotten all the confidence of the football drooling world, including the Seattle media. True, Rex Grossman has put up some stellar numbers passing this season ranking him 3rd in the league but what seems to matter most is a teams ability to find a way to win against all odds, which mind you, The happless Bears, who BTW, were one and done last season in the playoffs being ousted by the crumbling Panthers, did not do last season. Oh they wanted to see us in the NFC Title game but were un-able to meet us there, where mind you, The Hawks were waiting with open arms, and fans.
So, lets see if you, the Hawks faithfull can convince me, MaxHawk, why the Hawks will not win this game. Because quite frankly, I think its a no brainer and am going to ride this ship until it loses. Which may not be any time soon.
