In a recent article, ESPN Blogger Extraordinaire Mike Sando pointed out, "Seattle plays the 49ers, Steelers and Giants on the road during the first five weeks, with Arizona and Atlanta at home." There is a lot of 0-5, 1-4 kind of sentiment out there. Here's my take...
If we take care of our division and our house - Beat the beatable 49ers, and stun the media anointed Cardinals at the CLink, and do the same to the Falcons when they come to OUR nest, 3-2 in the first 5 sounds do-able. And I'm a "any given Sunday" kinda guy too, so I am not writing off the road games in Pittsburgh or New York.
Do you think either one of those teams, or even both of them, might be looking a week past the 'Hawks?
Nobody gives us a chance and the players on those teams read this crap too.
A career game from TJack, the O-Line finding their groove and the three headed rushing beast always a step fresher than the wonks chasing them....a little defensive magic - pick sixes are fun! And sacks on third downs make me yell so loud I startle my family and pets!
It could happen. That's all I'm saying.
Totally not impossible!
Any five given Sundays baby!
(is it Sunday yet?)
