It's already week 13? And, holy shit, Carolina has some serious injuries going on right now. It looks like their entire defense is hurt. Usually, I'm all for hoping that the opposing team is as healthy as possible, but with the Seahawks desperately needing a win right now, I'll take what I can get.
My Hawk this week is Chris Baker. Carolina is terrible against tight ends, and I think Baker exploits that. 5 catches, 70 yards, 1 TD. I still think that Carolina's defense is good enough to hold our anemic offense in check, especially our passing game. But the Seahawks still prevail 21-10 in a pretty ugly game.
Nice job to rossco17 for picking Obomanu, and to SmartAssCoug for picking Stokely. I have retaken the lead from Surf Hawk in the point prediction contest. This is a race that's going to go right down to the wire with six or seven of us still in strong contention. Remember, by season's end, you'll need to have picked 75% or more of the games to qualify, so the maximum number of games you can miss is four before being disqualified.
