Doug Farrar tackles 9ers/Hawks with his sophisticated statistical breakdown. As always, Farrar's work come Field Gulls approved. We don't always agree, but I never read an argument of his that I don't respect.
Both he and I key in on pass rush determining this week's contest, but where I think Seattle must blitz to win, he thinks the front four bears responsibility. We also disagree about Seattle's pass protection. A unit I think very hard to evaluate in light of news Rob Sims played much of last week's contest with a torn pec. I think we can both agree, in just week two, this game has the unnerving feeling of a must win.
