my honest approach about the hawks is this, im putting all my dislike for them aside. if im wrong i have no problem manning up. if hasselbeck stays healthy and that oline which i think will be a problem protects hasselbeck their passing offense can be a plus for them. im not worried about their running game 1 bit with the exception of forsett who looked good last yr but our d can handle the run gm very well. the addition of washington gives them a threat but will he be the same guy after that broken leg, time will tell.
now to their d which i really think will be easy to march up and down the field against if our offense comes prepared especially the oline, smith and raye. they have no pass rusher to be worried about, they got some lbs that are good but tatupu is injury prone and even with him and hill who will be suspended wk 1 and curry hasnt played near the way many thought he would play. gore ends up making that whole d his personal b***h yr after yr and i expect the same. trufant last yr wasnt the same guy before he got a raise so im not worried about him on crabtree who should have a nice gm. kelly jennings is nothing special so no worries there either. thomas is a rookie and i expect mistakes by him, i think he'll be solid but he cant do it all himself.
not a bit worried about redman aka milloy
overall this is a secondary smith should shred if he indeed he has turned the corner. but the hawks play us tough and would not be surprised if wk 1 ends up being a super close gm being that they would be pumped as well as the crowd. but if we come to play our talent should win without any drama. overall i think their d is in for a loooooooong season and hasselbeck better pray he stays alive
