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.

Good luck.

Welcome to the board - we always appreciate an intelligent post from opposing teams.


Be sure to check out the look-alikes thread that is bound to pop up (it's a tradition here).


It's late so I won't be long winded, but best of luck injury-wise this week and we will chat more later.

I second the welcome!
Sports would not exist without fans on both sides!
It should prove to be a good game!
Our hope is that the week off will allow time to put a great game plan together and sneak out of Seattle with a win!
We shall see!

Welcome to PP.O!

It's good to see opposing fans.
I would think that the Seattle fan base is a good group of people (unlike the Eagles or Giants) and I hope more of you guys come over.

Thanks for choosing PP.O!

Not at all.
We deserved the Burly pill that we got back.
While we could use the reviever currently
No hard feelings twards the hawks, or their fans.
It is just business.

SLargent1979 good post.
I agree with you that in order to shut down your team we need to put LOTS of pressure on Hassleback(sp??)
I personally think we can do it.
The the bears, for example, have put up HUGE scores and numbers against everyone they played, except us
We kept grossman on his toes and were in his face a lot, and at key times.


We also have only allowed 100+ yards rushing in 2 games.
By no means have we faced anyone like shawn, but he is banged up and has not had a stelar year so far.
I tthink our D will keep him in check and our fron 4 will give matt a run for his money.
I do wear pruple colored shades however
:P

Good luck and here is to a clean injury free game for both teams.

I've also been looking forward to this game.
Even if Alexander is out the Vikings will have to stop your formidable receiving corps.
The Vikings have yet to exploit anyone's defensive secondary and have had problems putting offensive TDs on the board.
This will be a good test for the Vikings.
Personally, I wish Alexander was back in the mix.
I would like to see how our D does stuffing him.
This will be a hard fought game and I agree the Vikings will need their A game to pull of a W.

You wanna see how he would do?
Play Madden.

I'm glad he's out.
What matters is Wins and Losses.
Period.
Do the Vikings have a better chance to Win with Alexander out?
Yes?
Then I'm glad he's out.

What happened to you, Prophet?
Loan your balls to a Packer fan on his wedding night?

The ballless one is the one that doesn't want Alexander in.

Is it a play-off spot tie-breaker?

I gotta go with Zeus.
I would rather play Seattle without Alexander than with.

I thought he was listed as questionable against the Vikes next week though?
That means it is anyone's guess at this point as to whether or not he is going to play.

Did I ever say I didn't want the W?
I think the Vikings can beat the Chickens with their A team on the field and that's how I would rather see it.
It is spineless to wish for star players to be gone so we can win.
Beat the best team they have.

No.
I'm happy that the Vikes won't be facing him.

YOU'RE wishing that he comes back from his injury in time for your team to play him.
That's BRILLIANT.
I suppose next you'll wish for the Packers to trade for LaDainian Tomlinson.

Nothing that you or I say will change what happens regarding Alexander's status.
FYI, he will not play so you will get your wish.

The logic says that you should want your team to face the weakest opponent possible so that they can achieve the ONE thing that matters - the victory.
Since nothing is to be gained AT ALL from beating a team that has all their star players, there is no LOGICAL reason for wanting them on the field to face the Vikes.

Your basing your stand on an emotion, not logic.

While I agree with you IN PRINCIPLE, I would rather face (and beat) the SAME TEAM that the BEARS got to play...it wouldn't be right for them to get to claim a WIN over a DEPELETED team while we could possibly be saddled with a LOSS to the same team at FULL STRENGTH!

BTW, what happened to your AVATAR???

WE WIN 17-10!!!

Good luck to you guys and no injuries on either side (although I do hope that we get to play the SAME TEAM as the Bears got to - minus Alexander - which would only be FAIR to our team in our fight for the division with the Bears).

I disagree, they will come like they have every game this year.
We may not be the explosive offense that you've seen from the Vikings in the past, but we're consistent.
I predict 1 offensive TD and 2 defensive TD's... 21-17 will be the final.

I saw your predicted score and I have to say while I know your team has talent you must not have noticed we have held all of our opponents to 19 points or under. I'm not saying we will win without a doubt but regardless of where we are playing our D is going to bring it. We have a dominant run D and Matt "we will receive, and we are going to score" Hasselbech is going to have to bring his A game.

The Vikings were in the battle with the Bears right to the end and lost, unlike the Chickens who were owned. The Rams lost to the 9ers and the Chickens eeked out a win.
The Jints are all over the place, playing sporadically, which team did you get?

The Walrus will take a break into the sound after this game.
Denny Green's explosion was just a prelude to what you will see from the Walrus after the Vikings walk into Seattle and make Hasselbeck look like Ryan Leaf in his NFL debut.

Wow.

Seahawks played the Bears on the Road
viQUEENS played the Bears at home.

I think we all learned yesterday that the BEARS, like the HAWKS, are a totally different team on the road than at home.

I just have one question for you, why did your leading rusher have 51 yards against the Lions and ours had 123?

This is proof your running game is gone without Hutch, especially if you can't put up 100 yds on the ground against the Lions!

Your team is heading downhill, just face the facts.

There is a big difference between "NOBODY wins in SEATTLE!" and We have lost at home before but the past few years we have played very well there.

Yes, I deserved that.
I was just getting frustrated by the "we almost beat the bears at home, and you got blown out at their house, so we are better!" threads.

WE do have a 12 game home winning streak though and one of the best home records in the league over the last 4 years.

Yes your team is very solid at home and it is going to take one hell of an effort from our team to win.

I don't subscribe to that train of thought. That the we played the bears tough and so it means we will play you tough. It is fallacy. Every game is different as fans we know what our team is capable of and you know what yours is and at the end of the week the truth is usually somewhere in the middle.

If our first five games are any indication he will be throwing short to medium. That is the sore spot of our offense. He is accurate and consistent but he is either making his reads too quickly or our O-cord is holding us back.

Brad doesn't get rattled very often. So pressure is important but not as much as usual. I think if you want to make B. Johnson a non factor you have to have good LB play.

I dont know about seattles LB's but if they are solid tacklers then it may be a long day for Minny. Deflected passes and keeping our short passes to very little YAC will probably shut our passing attack down.

Our front seven is the the strong point of our defense.
We rotate 8 players though the front four so they are always fresh.

Our linebackers are very strong.


It all starts with our MLB Lofa Tatupu.
He is a second year player out of USC (2nd round pick) and has played with poise and leadership since day 1 of his rookie year.
Tatupu came in second last year to Merriman in the DROY ballot and hasn't slowed down this year.
Last week he has 6 tackles and 1 INT against the Rams.

Our LOLB LeRoy Hill is also a second year player.
He finished with 8 sacks last year in basically the last 6 games.
This year he has been a bit slower with only 1 sack in four games.
He was out for the Lions game.

ROLB - we brought in Julian Peterson from the 49ers this year and he has performed as advertised.
He had 2 sacks last week and was involved a lot in the second half when the HAWKS began to actually play.

If there is one thing that can hurt our O more then anything it is a good LB core. We have some good offensive players too don't get me wrong I am not willing to say it will be a walk in the park for you guys, but If 5 games tells us anything it is we will not be spreading the field in the air and if your guys can keep everyone in front of them then it will make it rough for our offense to sustain drives.

The key's to this game I think is not how well any one point of the team plays.

Yes, we didn't do well against the Bears.
And YES we scraped by the Lions.

But the argument is going to come down to how well both offense plays against the other teams defense.


We just played a very emotional game against a division rival and rallied in the 2nd half to win the game.
With that, we are coming home with a healthy Dline and our WR corps are starting to click.


If the Hawks D or the O gets into a rhythm early in the game, it will be very tough for the Vikings to come back, especially at Qwest.
If we end up slugging it out or start playing catch-up, then look for the Hawks to start making some gambles plays.
Which doesn't happen to often.

But at home....I dunno...the Hawks have really used the Home field to their advantage, this will test the Vikings for sure.

Going to be a great game to watch.
I wish for NO injuries!! And hopefully the Refs will be on the ball (so to speak hehe)

No that is the only bad move he has made.
Spencer, Tatupu and Lewis in last years draft will keep him there for some time.

I can understand why he transitioned him though.
The thought would be ok go get your market value, come back and we will match it.
If the poison pills would have been nullified, we would have matched his contract he got with the vikings.
They even moved Big Walt's contract around so Hutch would have been the highest paid OL.

Yes, it does look like they're here to stay now.
Rob Brzezinski will have to be even more creative the next go around because people will be on guard.

I have read the numerous reasons why you all believe the Vikings have a chance in this game.
I would agree if the game were in MN, or even on neutral turf.
However w/ the game being in Seattle, I'm here to tell you that you have NO chance whatsoever to win this game.
I've been to Qwest enough times to know.
That doesn't mean you suck, I'm not sure if there is a team in the NFL who can win in Seattle.
This game will go just like all the other home games go (including playoffs).
Seahawks win the coin toss and proceed to march down the field for a much too easy TD (as is customary @ Qwest).
The Vikings O will look completely confused for the entire first half.
You watch, the Vikings will have less than 100 total yards in the first half.
Halftime score: Hawks 13, Vikings 0.
In the second half, the Vikings will find a little bit of continuity and the final score will be Hawks 27... Vikings 10.
Qwest field has a way of making QB's look like they completely forgot how to play football, makes O Linemen jittery, gives recievers the dropsies.
Sorry guys, this one is going to look easy.

Welcome Seahawk fans. It's good of you to come on here and speak intelligently, like you know a thing or two about football. Personally, I am afraid of the Seahawks, especially there at your place, ever since the thrashing you put on us a few years back when Alexander had, like, 44 TDs in the first half!!! (I DID have him on my fantasy team that year, so I was pumped about that, but little else)

Anyway, good luck to the Seahawks - they're gonna need it with our new-and-improved defense hounding you all day!

Well, so far HLD I've enjoyed your posts and your presence here on PP.O. I hope you continue to contribute because having fans from opposing sides to debate with is one of the better things about a football forum, especially when the fans are intelligent and insightful.
That said, I see that you're insulting a mascot. I'm not sure whether you meant the Vikings' or Acumen's, but that's besides the point. I feel that this is perhaps a topic worthy of open debate.

The question: Which is tougher?

1) A large bearded man, hopped up on hallucinagenic mushrooms, sailing into an unsuspecting village armed with a four-foot long, double-sided axe who proceeds to rape all women and girls while eviscerating the men's insides with previously said axe, and finishing the escapade by burning the entire village to the ground....

OR

2) A 21-inch (5 1/2 foot wingspan) bird of prey otherwise known as an osprey screaming across the Puget Sound harrassing locals with the green laserbeams shooting from its eyeballs?

Welcome Seahawk fans!
I cant believe you dont think we have a chance?
I think we have a very good chance!
I think the Vikes will win with a kick in the last 2 minutes of the game "CHANCE"

Vikes 16
Seahawks 13

I was just playing around with Acumen.
A little smack before we got down to business talking about our teams.

I am very impressed that you knew what a Seahawk was.
The is refreshing.
Most teams just post:

No seriously, I don't think you guys have watched enough games @ Qwest.
You all are going to quit watching at the half.
This game is not going to be close.
I would say it would be about a 60/40 chance the Hawks would win if the game were in MN.
But in Seattle, you REALLY, REALLY have NO chance, like 0.00% chance of winning this game.
Remember what I have written here as you are watching the Vikings completely fall apart in the earth rattling din of Qwest field.
I am dead serious when I say the Vikings will have less than 100 yards of offense at the half.
They very well might have less than 10 yards rushing.
No joke.

You are lucky enough to have a pro football team in your own backyard and you choose to support a team in the midwest.
I am a real die hard Hawk fan, however, if I moved to AZ, I would be the biggest Cardinal fan in the state.
I hope you are at the game Sunday, w/ any luck you will be seated in the South endzone w/ the real fans.
I look forward to heckling you right out of the building, not that I will need to.
I was at the game the last time the Vikings came to town, you all left at the half, it was beautiful.

??? That's sort of an oxymoron isn't?

I was born in MN & have been a die-hard Vikings fan all my life & now live in Wisconsin. There is no way I would ever quit being a Viking fan & jump on another teams fan bus, simply because I moved to another state.

I think you will find very few fans that do. You will find bandwagon fans jumping ship to a winning team, but to jump teams simply because of a move to another team just makes me shake my head.

Both types of those so called "fans" make me vomit.

When you are at the game this weekend, why don't you mention the following statement to the other Hawks fans there;

"I'm a real die-hard Hawk fan now, but if I ever moved to Minnesota, I would be the biggest Vikings fan in the state."

You just might find yourself being the one leaving at half-time.

I think most of you all know that Chawkaholic has some pretty biased views.

I was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska.
Sure, the only real games that were shown up here were either MNF (an hour behind) or the Seattle Seahawks.


Does that make me an automatic Seattle Seahawk fan, because of location?
Nope.


I'm actually a big fan of Football, it just so happens that the team I choose to follow all the time 24 hours a day 365 days a week are the Seattle Seahawks.

I've lived in Seattle, and in Arizona.
Did I watch the Cardinals play while I was in Phoenix?
Sure.
Did I wish to see them win?
Sure I did.
But thats because they were in the same Division of the Cowgirls, and man, I HATE the Cowgirls, almost worst than the Raiders.


Oh and as far as Chawkaholic other statement about blowing the Vikings out of the water at Qwest.
Thats not true.
We will only win by atleast 20 points.
Thats not so bad isn't it?

Welcome Seahawk Fans.
Most of you have provided quality input to the forum, however, you will loose for the following reasons:

a.
The loss of Hutch and last years MVP will produce no running attack against our front 4 on the D - Line.
b.
Although our Offense won't put up huge numbers, we will be ahead at the half 17-6.
c.
This will cause you to get pass happy.
d.
D-line will pin thier ears back (I actually hate that cliche') and get up the field and cause big Matt to start chucking the ball to anybody.
e.
Our secondary will be that "anybody" and the D will score the final 14 points.

Final outcome 31-6.

Its ok to have a dream.
Um....our Dline is actually better against the run than the pass.



The loss of Hutch and last years MVP will produce no running attack against our front 4 on the D - Line

Sure it hurts to have Hutch not playing for us, but you throw pressure against our run, we go to the air.
If we get a running game against your prominent front 4, then its over.
We'll have too many offensive options and the Vikes D will be confuse before they even know what hit them.

Hutch isn't the only one on the Vikes Oline.
He may be the strength of the line, but since we know that, we can then also exploit that.
How?
We got a rotating Dline of 4 very good DT's who'll keep your Oline very very tired.
Plus the fact that BJohnson won't even be able to hear himself throughout the whole game.


Any QB in that situation is bound to get a little fustrated and gun happy with the ball.



Our secondary will be that "anybody" and the D will score the final 14 points.

Thats a nice little quote, but its going to be the other way around

I think if we can put up 97 rushing yards against the Bears D that is ranked one ahead of you that we can manage to get close to 100 against the Hawks no doubt. Especially when your team managed to let the 23rd ranked Bears rushing attack pile up over 120 yards.

Obviously what is done against different teams does not translate directly, and you guys are at home. So who knows.

That being said our offense doesn't need 100 rush yards to win. We use the run to keep the defense true so we can execute the passing game. Unless your blowing us out your going to be seeing close to 30 runs no question about it.

True.

But I really think the Vikings will not be able to translate more than 60 yards at the most in this game.
Our run Defense is very healthy.
We just can't over commit to the pash rush against BJ.
If that happens, then Johnson will burn us down field.

We do have that weakness.
Our secondary has had miscommunications in the past 3 games that allowed the reciever to get open.
Last year we were 2nd over all in the Red Zone as far as keeping teams out of the end zone, this year we are 31st?
I think?


As LONG as we keep the Vikings offense from crossing the 50yard line, then our defense has done their job.
If we let you get down to our 30, thats when I start slamming shots of tequila and speaking in tongues hehe.

I know it'll be a very insteresting game.
The Vikings whole team is much different than the one we played against in 2004, so I'm pretty pumped to see this game.

Nice math dude.
There are two teams.
one will win, one will lose.
Each team makes up the whole 100%.
Now follow me here, that means both teams have a 50% chance each of winning as well as a 50% chance of losing.
If thats too confusing for you, well theres no hope for you ever making it in life, its over.

Any given sunday.
Watch footbal enough, you will learn that.
Saying a team has 0 chance to win is just asking for a cold plate of crow.
The cardinals had 0% chance to win against the bears, given your brilliant thought process.

I think you are seriously disturbed!

Viking's defense is ranked 5th in the NFL.

Seattle's offense is ranked 20th in the NFL.



Viking's offense is ranked 12th in the NFL.

Seattle's defense is ranked 15th in the NFL.


Seattle will not have it's best runner (unless the walrus is lying)!

Darly Jackson is dinged up, you are missing Egram, Branch is still trying to learn the offense and Nate Burleson has a cast on his hand and hasn't done much in Seattle.

Seattle's O-line is suspect and your best lineman has been playing injured and Hasselbeck will be running for his life, the Vikes D will be blitzing him and with pressure up the middle he will not be effective.

The left side of the Viking's O-line will be making highways for Chester Taylor to run through thanks to Hutchinson
;) whom your team was so kind to give us!

And I will bet you that the Viking's have more than 100 yards in the 1st quarter let alone the 1st half, and I will also bet you that the seahawk's don't have 80 yards rushing the whole game!
And if that is the case the Viking's D will tee off and send the dogs of war to kill Hasselbeck, so get the tumbstone ready for his grave because you will need it!

Kudos to whack. That was emotional yet very logical.

Exactly how did you come up with that figure?

Here's the rushing yards you've given up so far & the averages per carry.

Lions 38 (2.2)

Cardinals 146 (4.1)

77 Points over the last 3 games? yes that is true.
However this is where the points don't tell the whole story.

The first three quarters we held NY Giants to 3 points then started playing the backups in a college like "prevent hurt feelings" 4th quarter when NY scored all of their points.

There was a 6 quarter stretch where the HAWKS allowed 58 points.


In the previous 11 quarters the Hawks allowed a TOTAL of 19 points.

Where do you get 146 for the Cardinals from??

To me this is how I add:

James: 18 Attempts for 64 yards (3.5 ypc)
Warner: 2 attempts for 1 yard

Since when does 65 yards = 146 yards?
Must be your new viQueen math.

Our run Defense is very healthy.
We just can't over commit to the pash rush against BJ.
If that happens, then Johnson will burn us down field.


Exactly how did you come up with that figure?

Here's the rushing yards you've given up so far & the averages per carry.

Lions 38 (2.2)

Cardinals 146 (4.1)

Giants 106 (2.6)

Bears 143 (3.8)

Chester Taylor is averaging 3.8/carry & 22 carries per game by himself. And that is after a slow start.


Where do you get 146 for the Cardinals from??

To me this is how I add:

James: 18 Attempts for 64 yards (3.5 ypc)
Warner: 2 attempts for 1 yard

Since when does 65 yards = 146 yards?
Must be your new viQueen math.


I stand corrected on the Cardinals game. I was looking in the Seahawk column.

It was 65 yards on 20 attepts, but still 3.2 yards average per carry.

The NYG game was actually 73 yards rushing, & 4.9 ypc.

The Rams; 59 yards, 2.7 ypc.

My point is you are going up against Taylor who is averaging 3.8 ypc & gets 20+ carries a game. He has been coming on strong & you'll have a tough time holding him to 60 yards if he sees that many touches.

My source for the info is NFL.com

Actually Matt Birk is the strength of our line.

Hutch is a nice addition.

Rotate all you want.
They will get their asses kicked.

Sure...whatever

Lets see...how many false starts will there be....I'm thinking 5 at the least and....7 at the most.

There's going to be a nice welcome waiting at Qwest Stadium.

This guy is offering nothing. He is attacking our members integrity and there are enough good natured fans from the Hawks here that are talking a little smack and having fun. He is not one of them and we should not have to suffer his BS anylonger.


Hey dipsh!t...I was at the Redskins game...and got heckled unmercifully all game long...BUT guess who it was that had to slink out of the stadium at the end of the game...that's right...the heckling Redskins fans!
I am pretty sure that this week, my buddy Pac will be experiencing the same phenomena as I did on opening weekend!

I have a feeling we'll be pounding the run, maybe 30+ rushes for 100+ yards

Its ok to have a dream.
Um....our Dline is actually better against the run than the pass.



The loss of Hutch and last years MVP will produce no running attack against our front 4 on the D - Line

Sure it hurts to have Hutch not playing for us, but you throw pressure against our run, we go to the air.
If we get a running game against your prominent front 4, then its over.
We'll have too many offensive options and the Vikes D will be confuse before they even know what hit them.

Hutch isn't the only one on the Vikes Oline.
He may be the strength of the line, but since we know that, we can then also exploit that.
How?
We got a rotating Dline of 4 very good DT's who'll keep your Oline very very tired.
Plus the fact that BJohnson won't even be able to hear himself throughout the whole game.


Any QB in that situation is bound to get a little fustrated and gun happy with the ball.



Our secondary will be that "anybody" and the D will score the final 14 points.

Thats a nice little quote, but its going to be the other way around
;D


You made my point exactly.
We will stop your run and do it with our front four and you will have to go to the air.
Stand by for "Ball Hawking Sharper" to bring at least one back.

Additionally, Hutchinson only strengthens a pretty good left with McKinney and Birk.
The right side is our weakness, especially with blocking the back side when we go left, but I still think they are going to matchup well against your D-line, no matter how many you can rotate.
I expect we will have limited success running early but will stay with a balanced attach 50/50 run/pass.
That will impact later on in the 4th qtr when all we are doing is burning the clock.

Even if you hold C.t to less then normal yards in the first half, our O line will make y our D line suffer and in the forth, it'll be open lanes.. and then you'll see the strength of Mck Hutch and Birk. any kid that knows math can understand we run to the left + left center 75% of the time.. your coaches know this, but won't be able to stop it.

Welp, I may have mentioned our very good rotating DLine, but I've failed to impart you all some knowledge about our Linebacker corps.

2 time Probowler OLB Julian Peterson (already leads teams in sacks with 4)
Probowler (in his first year) MLB Lofa Tatupu
Last but not least OLB Leroy Hill (split time with DD Lewis last year and still manage to rack in 7.5 sacks)

Even if Chester (or any RB for that matter) manages to find an opening, he'll have to get past our very fast Linebacker corps.
And when they are in sync, they don't let anything by them.


So that takes care of your worries about our DT's not making a play.

Gee Chicago managed to beat us right at the end by 3 points.
Interestingly the same amount of points you managed to score in the whole game when you played them.
I guess that was one of the games that your line backers weren't in sync for huh?
They gave up 37 points.

We held Chicago to 19 points.
When it goes south for you this Sunday you can just blame it on not being in sync.

Wow, Thomas Jones rushed for 94 yards vs. Seattle with 4.1ypc. Against the Vikes he had 54 yards & 3.0 ypc. Benson added 34 yards vs. Seattle. Julian Peterson is good, but overrated. Tatupu is the only guy in the LB corps that has impressed me

You haven't lost at home yet.

There is a big difference between "NOBODY wins in SEATTLE!" and We have lost at home before but the past few years we have played very well there.

Your claim is about as smart as me saying WE HAVEN'T LOST TO A BALDING QB THIS YEAR THAT GUARANTEE'S VICTORIES ONLY TO THROW A TD TO THE OPPOSING TEAM.


Yes, I deserved that.

I was just getting frustrated by the "we almost beat the bears at home, and you got blown out at their house, so we are better!" threads.

WE do have a 12 game home winning streak though and one of the best home records in the league over the last 4 years.


does anyone remember th packers home win streak was it 27 and we crushed them there??? the vikings love to beat teams on streaks!!! 14 home games in a row not bad cept you have no run game ur o line is nothing now ur defense is shaky, and it isnt a must win game for you so i dont think they will come out guns a blazin i think it will be a goood game but i think the vike will come out on top

This is what I hate about threads like these, egotistical fans always feel the need to invade and become a complete ass when the game hasn't even been played yet. Sorry but if you 'Hawks' fans think you will run us over like you did the Giants, you're dreaming, just ask the Bears fans, they thought the same thing...oh wait I guess you won't be asking them since they destroyed you and you would simply be laughed at. Do I even need to mention how the Hawks D made overrated Grossman look like a probowler.

Stats and the way rosters look on paper mean absolutely nothing. Fact of the matter is any defense can be picked apart given the chance (i.e. protection and blocking) Brad may be old but he's still highly capable of finding the weak spot in the defense. Same goes for our D, if it happens props to the team that does it, but as of now the games we have played prove we are a bend but don't break D and a formidable one.

All I can say is the Hawk's expect to win they better bring a rushing game, can't win in this league passing 40+ times and I don't know what's with the name calling, I never got the Viqueen joke, just shows the maturity level of some people.

I have no worries.. dont you remember cheering for Hutch as he tossed people backward? if u don't remember.. watch sunday it'll happen again.

and if you get someone infront of C.t they have to deal with big Tony R.
my hopes are that you focus on this so B.j can use the TE's and get behiend your lb's and we just march over your head.

it's gonna be a long tuff battle, but i like our chances to break whatever hope u have for winning this game.

Some people make a joke some can't, same as some can take a joke
and some can't

For the Hawk fans that did come on and troll, they've been handled, am I correct?
So you won't have to worry.

I have faith in my team just as you do yours.

I go to a few away games, get spit on, beer poured on, insults hurled at, but I still support my team no matter where they play and when.

Same as going to other team's forums.
I enjoy interacting with fans from other teams, because they provide me information that I normally only get on game day.
From coming on here this week, I see the faith you all have in the Vikings run game, and the stout Vikings D.

YES yes YES.
I am still reeling from the Bears game.
Every now and then the Hawks let a stinker like that get by them.

The Hawks have regrouped since then during the bye, and are coming into this game very healthy despite Alexander and Engram not playing in the lineup this week.

We are at home, you can't dispute home field advantage.
I will forever have faith in my team regardless of stats and numbers.
Just as I'm sure you all do as well.

I don't expect the Vikings to let the Hawks fly all over them.
I have a feeling it will be a game best fought between the Defenses rather than the Offenses.

ESPN 6 of 8 pick Hawks: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/features/talent
CBS 3 of 6 Pick Hawks again 6.5 point spread: http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/features/writers/expert/picks

Add in the Hawks are 12-0 at home since the end of '04, and 26 of their last 29, and I really don't know where you're getting all this confidence.

I'm not guarenteeing a victory or anything, and I dont' generally put too much weight in so-called expert picks.
But when its this dramatic, do you think they maybe know something you don't?

The game will be close, if we can hold seattle under 17 we could win, the vikings cannot score more than 17 unless the D has a fantasy day again.

It seems important to you to refer to your team as the HAWKS, as if that will make them seem more formidable.
So what exactly is a seahawk?

"So are you ever likely to see a “seahawk” in feathered form?
Well, perhaps.
Just don’t expect to find it listed as such in any field guide.
But if you can read Greek you will find something close: the Osprey.
With a distinct brown eye-band contrasting with a white feathery cap, the Osprey holds quite a regal presence.
Found worldwide, the Osprey eats only live fish"

Sounds pretty scary.....
I cant shake those images of flesh ripping seabirds like the penguin, seagull, and duck!
I shouldn't joke....I am sure if you layed out on the beach with a fish on your face, one of those mean nasty "Seahawks" could actually peck your eye out!

Kidding aside, I look for this to be a very competitive game and would be shocked to see either team get blown out.
Because I am a Viking fan, I have to pick the Vikes to win.

Congrats, you've established that Grossman is incredibly inconsistent.
You realize we destroyed AZ right?

I can't blame fans for optomism, and agree that anything can happen in the NFL.
But some of you guys don't seem to appreciate how difficult this game is going to be for the vikes.
Have you seen the picks this week?

ESPN 6 of 8 pick Hawks: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/features/talent
CBS 3 of 6 Pick Hawks again 6.5 point spread: http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/features/writers/expert/picks

Add in the Hawks are 12-0 at home since the end of '04, and 26 of their last 29, and I really don't know where you're getting all this confidence.

I'm not guarenteeing a victory or anything, and I dont' generally put too much weight in so-called expert picks.
But when its this dramatic, do you think they maybe know something you don't?
Maybe at least admit this is going to be a tough one for the vikes?


I don't think many Vikings fans think this game is going to be a cake walk.
There are plenty of Seachicken fans thinking this will be a cakewalk though.
The Chickens won't be racking up a bunch of points this Sunday, I doubt that the Vikings will either.
However, it is high time that the Vikings O does something and this would make a great time for their coming out party (unlike the coming out party that you are use to).

Agreed, everyone here knows it will be a tight, hard-fought contest. Not high scoring or one sided. We have faith in our team, and believe we can win. The Seachickens are coming off of an emotional game vs. the Rams, & may be overlooking us. Good luck over there & go Vikes!

Both of those comments are fair.
I was more referring to some of the more homeristic posts or these morons telling me Bethel runs a 4.2: http://rubechat.kfan.com/forums/thread/985082.aspx

I agree it will be a physical game.
If the Vikings D can totally shut down the run and bring pressure they've got a shot.

Problem is, I don't think your offense is explosive enough to jump out in front and make us one-dimensional like Chicago did.
But then again, I'm just a Seahawk homer.

If we are effective in the run I think the game gets ugly, but I would not be at all suprised if the Vikings covered the spread.

This is what I hate about threads like these, egotistical fans always feel the need to invade and become a complete jiggly butt when the game hasn't even been played yet. Sorry but if you 'Hawks' fans think you will run us over like you did the Giants, you're dreaming, just ask the Bears fans, they thought the same thing...oh wait I guess you won't be asking them since they destroyed you and you would simply be laughed at. Do I even need to mention how the Hawks D made overrated Grossman look like a probowler.

Stats and the way rosters look on paper mean absolutely nothing. Fact of the matter is any defense can be picked apart given the chance (i.e. protection and blocking) Brad may be old but he's still highly capable of finding the weak spot in the defense. Same goes for our D, if it happens props to the team that does it, but as of now the games we have played prove we are a bend but don't break D and a formidable one.

All I can say is the Hawk's expect to win they better bring a rushing game, can't win in this league passing 40+ times and I don't know what's with the name calling, I never got the Viqueen joke, just shows the maturity level of some people.

Get a grip, this is the internet.
Some people make a joke some can't, same as some can take a joke
and some can't

For the Hawk fans that did come on and troll, they've been handled, am I correct?
So you won't have to worry.

I have faith in my team just as you do yours.

I go to a few away games, get spit on, beer poured on, insults hurled at, but I still support my team no matter where they play and when.

Same as going to other team's forums.
I enjoy interacting with fans from other teams, because they provide me information that I normally only get on game day.
From coming on here this week, I see the faith you all have in the Vikings run game, and the stout Vikings D.

YES yes YES.
I am still reeling from the Bears game.
Every now and then the Hawks let a stinker like that get by them.

The Hawks have regrouped since then during the bye, and are coming into this game very healthy despite Alexander and Engram not playing in the lineup this week.

We are at home, you can't dispute home field advantage.
I will forever have faith in my team regardless of stats and numbers.
Just as I'm sure you all do as well.

I don't expect the Vikings to let the Hawks fly all over them.
I have a feeling it will be a game best fought between the Defenses rather than the Offenses.


I wish for no Injuries and a great game.

Thanks for having me here this week its been fun.

Btw, on Sunday, I will be doing a live chat broadcast over at buddytv.com.
I'm new at this and the camera speed might be a little off (wifi), but there is still a chat box you can all communicate on if you do show up.


http://www.buddytv.com/TVJHome.aspx?TVJId=7224


I'll see you all on Sunday, have a great weekend and GO HAWKS!!!!!!







Well it's good to know atleast 1 of you has a brain, good to see a decent rival fan actually make a constructive discussion on the game, that is a very rare thing. it's much appreciated.

If that is what you call difficult I think you may want to take a step back a re-evaluate your whole opinion on the subject.

You are lucky enough to have a pro football team in your own backyard and you choose to support a team in the midwest.
I am a real die hard Hawk fan, however, if I moved to AZ, I would be the biggest Cardinal fan in the state.
I hope you are at the game Sunday, w/ any luck you will be seated in the South endzone w/ the real fans.
I look forward to heckling you right out of the building, not that I will need to.
I was at the game the last time the Vikings came to town, you all left at the half, it was beautiful.

This guy is offering nothing. He is attacking our members integrity and there are enough good natured fans from the Hawks here that are talking a little smack and having fun. He is not one of them and we should not have to suffer his BS anylonger.


Hey dipsh!t...I was at the Redskins game...and got heckled unmercifully all game long...BUT guess who it was that had to slink out of the stadium at the end of the game...that's right...the heckling Redskins fans!
I am pretty sure that this week, my buddy Pac will be experiencing the same phenomena as I did on opening weekend!

Go get 'em, Pac and crew!!!
REPRESENT!!!


CAJUN,



We walked out proud toghether and did no slinking.





Hey Cajun,




Wasn't it fun to watch the "DIE HARD" Seachicken fans walking out of the game shortly after Hassleback went down?

You haven't lost at home yet.

There is a big difference between "NOBODY wins in SEATTLE!" and We have lost at home before but the past few years we have played very well there.

Your claim is about as smart as me saying WE HAVEN'T LOST TO A BALDING QB THIS YEAR THAT GUARANTEE'S VICTORIES ONLY TO THROW A TD TO THE OPPOSING TEAM.




And there you have it, you do lose at home. 31-13. Any given Sunday.

Just like when you dominated the Bears.
The Seachickens are going back to their 70's form for an afternoon this Sunday and losing at home.
It has been spoken.


Ummm...Does you love boat lovin team not know that the game is in Seattle this week?
NOBODY wins in SEATTLE.


THAT IS FACT BOY


This has been beaten to death, but I have some crow I pulled it out of the freezer last night.
I reckon it would be best to eat it soon, it's thawed out now and the temperature is going to be in the mid 70s today.

If you ever want some legitimate advice, stop by again somtime.

Even if you hold C.t to less then normal yards in the first half, our O line will make y our D line suffer and in the forth, it'll be open lanes.. and then you'll see the strength of Mck Hutch and Birk. any kid that knows math can understand we run to the left + left center 75% of the time.. your coaches know this, but won't be able to stop it.

Welp, I may have mentioned our very good rotating DLine, but I've failed to impart you all some knowledge about our Linebacker corps.

2 time Probowler OLB Julian Peterson (already leads teams in sacks with 4)
Probowler (in his first year) MLB Lofa Tatupu
Last but not least OLB Leroy Hill (split time with DD Lewis last year and still manage to rack in 7.5 sacks)

Even if Chester (or any RB for that matter) manages to find an opening, he'll have to get past our very fast Linebacker corps.
And when they are in sync, they don't let anything by them.


So that takes care of your worries about our DT's not making a play.




I'm guessing that they weren't in sync...maybe they were N'SYNC instead!

We went, we cheered, and we conquered!
;D
Most of the Hawks fans were civil to friendly, but they had a group of drunken d-bags at our tailgating lot.
I went over to try to have a civil debate about our teams and soon realized they were drunken buffons who couldn't hold a civilized debate if they had cue-cards.
Obnoxious reprobates...
thought they were transplanted cheesediks.
I did note the deafening silence when we returned to the lot!
In fact, most of them had left!
Mass exodus in mid-4th qtr.


I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Dropper and sampling his most excellent rum.
My hats off to you Dropper!
Good stuff, and the next time I'm in Portland, I'll drop by your distillery.

By the way did you get to heckle Chokahawkaholic when he left early with all the other 'die-hards'
