Last week was a shit sandwich, and this week looks to be no different. Let's run down the list, shall we?
- Superior opponent? Check.
- Road Game? Check.
10 am PST start time? Check.Uncheck. I forgot the game got pushed back to 1 pm PST.
Tampa Bay isn't great, but they're a helluva lot better than the Seahawks. That being said, I don't really think this game is going to be a blowout; I think the Hawks will be able to exploit some of their weaknesses. Namely, the running game. My Hawk this week is Beast Force. I think they combine for something like 120 rushing yards, 60 receiving yards, and one touchdown. But Hasselbeck, who has already turned back into a pumpkin, turns into a rotten, collapsed jack-o-lantern that somebody has left outside until Christmas. He throws the game with another three picks, and the Hawks lose 24-13.
BeaverBird had a nice prediction, picking Charlie Whitehurst to pick up a touchdown last week. And now that I've refined the way we're doing the adjusted averages in the point prediction competition, Surf Hawk is absolutely KILLING. Well done, sir. Here's the link: Link.
Happy holidays, everybody!
