Got a chuckle out of this article. It's so true. Hard to get fired up like you would if it was a hated rival.

Yes indeed. I want to beat them badly and then have the players take them all out to a nice meal after.

I don't live in Atlanta, but I like both the cities the same.

And Starbucks sucks! The coffee that is. There are far better coffee cafes in Seattle and the West Coast for that matter than Starbucks.

Yup, Atlanta is a good team and they seem like nice guys who play hard. Hard to hate on them.

It's this fact that makes me wonder if our trash-talking, hard hitting team might get under their skin and force a few mistakes.

Just like the old finesse Seahawks used to fall trap to.

Not going to have to go far to find that on this board. I kid, I kid.

Never had their burgers I must admit. Is that the most popular fast food burger there? If it's old fashioned and homemade I'm sure they are great.

I am just glad this game isn't when Roddy was younger. White and Sherman would have been into it the first offensive play and our old OL Harvey Dahl would have been ejected.

I still think there is a chance that White and Sherman get a flag or two. Watch out for Asante Samuel too. He is a vet that has major confidence and a mouth to boot.

I think Arthur Blank agrees with you. Which is why a new one is going to be built in 2017.

They are greasy, cheap, and amazingly yummy. Its not the most popular in the pure scale of burger sales but is definately local favorite. If i remember right (been a year or two) the most expensive burger is the Dicks Deluxe and its like $2.50 so you end up getting 2-3 burgers and fries(sometimes multiple) at a time. Fries are amazing as long as they are still hot. probably the best drunkmunchie food in town. Make a stop if your in town, worth the trip.

Yeah, exactly. I really think one of the keys for Atlanta is to not let the hawks get under their skin. If they can stay calm, they have a much better chance of executing the way they like to on Offense. For our sake, I hope the Hawks DO irritate the heck out of them. :D

Personally, I think the coaches tell the Hawks D that it's OK to get a couple flags a game as long as they drive the offense crazy and throw them off their game. They are so aggressive that it has to be coached that way with the blessing of the guys in charge. Obviously not try to hurt anybody, but play physical and not be afraid of contact.

I loved watching the beastmode run to knock the Taints out a couple years back
My Brother was stationed at Fort Lewis and always said the locals were super friendly. He wants to go back. (I'm military also)
McChord is on my dream sheet
One of my best friends is from Everett
When I was a kid, the Mariners were my favorite team...Griffey.
I've always been an Atlanta Hawks fan, but my west coast team as a kid were the Sonics...Kemp and Payton

Though Seattle isnt my favorite team, I have always liked you guys.

W/ that said...I hope we kick the everliving shit out of you on sunday

Air Force huh? Good to see another Airman (got out in 2006). McChord is nice but I can't dig Lakewood, probably one of the bigger shit holes in the northwest.

If he used to be one of your favorite players, why don't you know how to spell his name?

Not hard to hate them at all - they stand in the way of our first Lombardi Trophy.

If they roll over on Sunday, get beaten to a pulp or something in between, I will go back to my normal feelings - not caring one iota
for them or the NFC South.

The refs have been letting the players play so far in the playoffs. We'll see if that continues. We will have to watch ourselves. I think they let the guys play last Sunday because both Redskins and Seahawks were chippy all game long. If it's a one-sided affair this Sunday I can see some 15-yard penalties coming our way and against that offense? Ouch.

Be aggressive, be in their face, Punish them physically within the rules, but play smart.

Oh wow, this is pretty much the exact post I've been meaning to write for the past couple days. Refs pretty much had to stay out of it last weekend because BOTH teams were going at it. Those antics we have grown to love so much might not fly as well if the other guys resist the temptation to join the party. I say, dial it back early and slowly escalate.

I'm nowhere near as worried about being jobbed as I was in DC, but drive-extending 15-yarders are a great way to get beat by an offense you are hoping to contain.
