No question, the Arizona Cardinals have a fiesty defense who play tough. They've already beaten us once this year. Well, I'm not hearing one lick of it. The Cardinals are on an 8 game losing streak, their coach is about to be fired and players are spitting on one another.
They are imploding.
So if you really think that THAT Arizona team is going to magically waltz into the toughest stadium to play in the NFL and beat one of the hottest quarterbacks in the league and a team that now has tremendous confidence after a thrilling and decisive road victory against the Bears with TANZANIA at our backs...
I want what you're smokin'.
Aros' Fearless Prediction: Seahawks 34 - Cardinals 3
Aros' Fearless Record: 7-5
It has been years since smoking anything, but I am a realistic Seahawk fan. While I understand that on paper the Hawks should destroy AZ, guys line Dockett and their defense tend to be disruptive. I look at the variables, Wilson is now getting a ton of media attention, the Cards are stinking it up and the Hawks need this game badly.
I want to say it is different this time because Wilson is just so solid, but in the back of my mind, I worry that this is the 2004 type game. Where the Hawks find a way to under perform and either leave it close or lose.
I still say the Hawks win, but not by a bunch. More like 17-10. I WANT the big blowout, in fact I want it to be so bad that PC sits Wilson and gives Flynn some reps because the lead is so big.
