"That was the most physical game I've ever been a part of."
Who said this? Tiki Barber after the Giants game in 2005.
I think all this "soft" talk about the Hawks is a little revisionist. They had size and pretty damn solid depth on the defensive line. The linebackers could hit, the secondary was very deep. They ran the ball whenever they wanted wherever they wanted.
That team, was not soft. Some other Holmgren teams were, but lets not let our revisionist history cloud that.
11 wins in a row. Absolutely dominating performances week after week. 13-3, number 1 seed. I was absolutely walking on air by week 16 because we were about to sew up HFA. I was pretty damn confident the Hawks were going to Detroit.
