No offense Hawk, but I'm just hoping to sit back and watch a good game.

 

I'm just happy there's a game where I'm okay with whatever outcome.  If I'd have been stuck with 49ers-Patriots, that would have sucked.

Hawks are the only acceptable outcome on top.

Fug Peyton Manning.

Keys will be can the Hawks actually put a rush on Peyton?

In other words can the Legion of Boom make Manning hold the ball long enough with their coverage skills so the pass rush can hit paydirt?

I think they will, Manning will get stuffed a time or two and turn over the football twice.

Seattle wins, 27-20.

 

Rejoice!

I look for it to be a very competitive game.  If the weather is not an issue, then I see the Broncos winning a close one.  If the weather is disruptive in the least, then I see Wilsons ability to become an add'l runner as the key.  It is that close for me.

 

Windy or cold or snowy gives the edge to Hawks

That's a funny sounding statement in context, given that you're talking about an opposing team from Denver :lol:

 

Aaaaahhh, but factor Peyton's rep for poor performance in bad weather in there, and... :unsure:

Yep, last weekend in Denver for the AFC championship, it was 50 and sunny.  50 in Denver feels like 65 here, so a wonderful day for Peyton.

 

Seattle is just crap weather all the time, rain, snow, wind, etc.  Just feel like even though it is Seattle, they still get worse weather as a whole, and yes, Peytons long history of being a little off the mark in cold did factor in.

These teams haven't played since 2010 excluding preseason.

 

Denver will need to run the ball effectively to buy Manning time and options.

 

Seattle has to score. Their offense dropped a few duds in the regular season. Against the Broncos scoring is not optional.

 

Russel Wilson was huge against ATL last year and Manning has beaten great defenses  before (Bears in SB).

 

I'll take Manning's experience. Seattle didn't look good against 49ers. Broncos have looked solid all playoffs.

Is it Peyton's swan song if he wins?

 

(a lot of AFC West fans hope the answer is 'yes')

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
