Nice remarks about Singletary, but why do people think the Seahawks defense has gotten better if they've lost Julian Peterson? Maybe someone who knows their team better than I do can explain that to me. We'll find out, but I was happy to hear I wouldn't be looking at his ugly mug pointing at his name and taunting the crowd any more. Anyone who taunts the fans of the team that brought him into the league, fans who rooted for him for years, has no class and Detroit is the perfect place for him.
I don't see that Defense being below middle of the pack next year, even with J.P. gone. Mora is too good a coach for that. I think that they'll have a very tough Offense this season what with then up Housh in the Offseason and I think THAT is what carries them to the playoffs if they get that far. The real question is Hasselback. He's getting old and it could be tough for them to bounce back even with Seneca Wallace taking over. Teams know what they'll see from Wallace and will be better prepared to defend against him.
The Rams will definitely be sucking hind tit at the end of the season. The West is not as weak as the pundits like to think, what with 3 very capable teams fighting for their Post Season berth.
But in the end I think that it's gonna be us, Seattle and Arizona in that order. It'll depend on how awful the other NFC divisions are to determine whether or not there is a Wildcard team coming from the West this yar.
The Shehawks are gonna have a tough time replacing the presence of J.P., that's for sure.
