Post Your Hawk: Week 3

San Diego Chargers (1-1) vs. Seattle Seahawks (1-1)

San Diego Injuries: Ryan Mathews RB - DOUBT

Seattle Injuries: LeRoy Hill LB - OUT

So, last week didn't exactly work out for the Seahawks. Being the shitty road team they are, we should have all seen that one coming. But coming back to Qwest this week should light some fire under them. I'm a little scared by how the secondary played against Kyle Orton last week, especially with Philip Rivers bringing his outsized ego to Seattle. However, with the injury to Ryan Mathews I expect the Seahawks to completely shut down the running game and put the pressure squarely on the arm of Rivers to win the game...which he can easily do. I'm having nightmares of Sproles scoring touchdown after touchdown on horribly defended screen plays.

That being said, I'm picking the Seahawks to win in an extremely hard-fought game. My Hawk is Justin Forsett. 120 rushing yards, 40 receiving yards, and 1 TD. Hawks win 21-20.

Last week in the player prediction challenge, rossco17 received the most recs by picking Deon Butler as his Hawk. Also, here's a link to the point prediction spreadsheet: Link. There were quite a few no-shows who posted a score prediction in week 1, but not week 2. Additionally, there were a bunch of new people who posted a prediction in week 2, but weren't around in week 1. The users who haven't "qualified" for the lead are indicated by a yellow box. I had originally planned this competition to be the person with the lowest overall points, but now that we're having some variation in who's picking, perhaps we should switch to an average difference. I'm going to propose that the person can't be eligible to win unless they've picked 75% of the games. Does that sound reasonable to everybody? If that's the case, then, well look at that, I'M winning! WOO!!!
