This is a great matchup because we are built so much the same and have both come to power with new strong regimes with the Johns. It is weird how close we are personnel wise and I look forward to a great matchup
Guess I'll address this. Sounds like you have some interest in the Hawks but your team really is the Donkeys. So..that being said, prepare for watching your favorite team beaten up and kicked to the curb. The two teams are not similar. The Hawks have most of their playmakers on D. The are bigger, faster and ferocious than any other team in the NFL. The Hawks also plod along with a stout running game. Wilson is not a pocket QB ( wish he was most of the time) but he makes game changing plays improvising THROWING the ball, not running it. He isn't Kap nor Cam Newton. He runs to by time to look down field. T
The Donkeys have not played against a defenses remotely similar to what the Hawks have this year. On the flip side the Donkeys have not played the grind it out, elite athletic QB's this year. The hawks haven't squared off with an elite QB this year ( debatable with Breeze) but TB, PM and AR are the best. However they did face 2 of the 3 last year and beat both. Of course the Packers game was a mess with officiating but before you toss that out the game would have been over long before the hail Mary if the calls would have been made correctly.
Denver is a finesse team with a finesse QB. Tell me your not hoping for 50 degrees and no wind. PM has a proven track record in non perfect weather conditions.
As far as what I have seen on Donkeys forums, most of the fans are ignorant about the Hawks but feel free to voice their rhetoric about what they are. What they really are is a team that is physical, fast, tough, smart and have a real edge to them. Think of the island of misfit toys on steroids. Almost all of the studs were low round draft picks or cast off's from other teams. Not glamor picks in the top 5 of the draft.
As far as Sherman, Donkey fans keep thinking he is a loose cannon. He knows EXACTLY what he is doing. By posting about him you are doing what he has intended you to do. Kinda like Bosworth selling all of the those I hate Boz t-shirts in Denver. Donkey fans should call themselves sheoples. Kinda fits with the horse and all.
