Thanks as always, Em. Good stuff. Was actually surprised at your prediction. I'll take it, but I'm still fairly skeptical of pulling one out on the road for the second straight game.
I'm always "skeptical", but we've already won our last 3 road games (Chicago, Buffalo & Washington). The fact that it's on the road doesn't scare me, as much as the fact that Atlanta is just a pretty solid football team and has earned their position with homefield throughout. I still really like our matchups. Especially our offense vs. their defense. I think Lynch has another stellar performance today. As a matter of fact, I've been thinking it, so I'll just come out and say it...Lynch sets the Seahawks record for Rushing yards in a post season game this week. He tied it last week with 132 vs. the Redskins, but this week I think he breaks in by topping 150.
As for the Football Gameplan preview, I thought it was very well put together. One thing that I thought was interesting was how you wisely discussed Scruggs playing a lot of the run downs in the game. Too many people seem to be discarding this and just focusing on straight up Irvin for Clemons due to the injury. I think Pete will use Irvin more, but will rely more on Scruggs to help contain the run.
