Bears at Seahawks 2009

Your thoughts?

My thought on the Seahawks even before the season began was that I didn’t understand the preseason hype being bestowed upon Seattle.  Many publications had them easily winning the NFC West and possibly advancing far into the playoffs.

I just didn’t see how they improved so much from a really bad 2008.  Sure, they have some strong individual contributors such as LB Lofa Tatupu and a promising rookie in Aaron Curry.  But their lines and quarterback are aging and the specialty positions aren’t that great.

Sure, Qwest Field is always a difficult place to play, but I just don’t see how the Bears lose this game.

What do you think?

  1. If Hasselbeck isn’t going, Bears should be able to handle it. And get Forte and the running game going a bit.

  2. If the offense and defense play even close to as well as they played against the Steelers, we win this game easily. After the way the 49er’s ran on Seattle last week, I look for our running game to get back on track. Forte could have a big day. I have been really disappointed in our run-blocking so far this season. I think, at this point, that’s the only area we need to REALLY improve upon. Also, Hester is WAY overdue for a punt return to the house…

  3. I think the Bears win authoritatively in this one.
    However, I have some concerns about how well the offense will play (early in the game) not being able to hear.
    I imagine the Bears will start slow and as the crowd settles down Cutler and the receivers will gel like they did in the Denver preseason game.
    I look for a lot of pressure and sacks by the D-line and the secondary to get 2 picks.
    A defensive score is on tap.
    Matt Forte will easily eclipse 100 rushing yards and the O-line will get some much needed confidence.
    The most important thing will be to get an early lead to get the 12th man out of the game.
    GO BEARS!!!!!

  4. The 12th man never settles down. Whoever is writing this blog should check their facts on the age of the lines. Sure Walt and Patrick are getting old but everyone else is pretty young. GO HAWKS!!!!!
