I just wanted to drop a line and say that as a Seahawks fan I am very excited for this game.
It'll be very interesting to see Hutch's return and how he plays against his former family.
That whole poison pill situation this off-season was ugly, on both sides, but kudos to your front office for managing to secure the best guard (and one of the best linemen period) in the NFL.
Also, getting rid of Culpepper has proven to be a smart decision.
You guys are a legitimate team and I think it would be a mistake for us to over look you this upcoming Sunday.
Your front seven is vicious and I expect problems with pass protection for Hass this week.
Brad Johnson is a crafty veteran and given momentum and protection he has proven he can get the job done.
The jury is still out as to whether our main threat, Shaun Alexander, will be playing.
If he is, it'll be a difficult situation stopping both Alexander and our passing game.
If he does play, the key is shutting him down and making us a one dimensional team.
The Bears, though no Alexander, proved how to beat us.
If you can get pressure on Matt, you have a chance.
I don't know where our defense is just yet.
Obviously, our secondary is suspect and if we can't get pressure on Johnson, you'll be able to exploit it.
I don't expect Taylor to run for too much.
Even in our blow out in Chicago (oh how painful that was), we still played decent run defense and held Steven Jackson to 54 yards in St. Louis.
Johnson will have to bring his A-Game.
I suspect that he will, you've had two weeks off to prepare for this game.
Overall, I think we're just too much at home.
I foresee a Seahawk victory somewhere along the lines of 28-20.
Here's to an exciting, injury free game.
