Thank you. In reading that it is clear they have some pretty good talent there at RB headed into 2013 but yeah with Jackson gone that changes the whole flavor because he was a major issue for us. Think this brings me to having Rams and Hawks balanced now instead of Rams surprisingly ahead of them. Interesting post up there also about the schedules too.
Been an athlete, just call it intuition, I think the Seapunks implode more than expected in 2013 for a host of reasons and I can't wait to watch it happen. I have never hated a team or their fans in all my years even during the great NIners/Cowboys era. Even respected the Seahawks when Steve Largent was playing just as Jerry Rice did, they had class and were good. But I live up north and listen to the fans now. They are the most hateful loud mouthed punks I've ever run into and I have finally developed hate.
I want to see these punk Seahawks and their punk fans completely DESTROYED BY THE NINERS
It's pretty obvious you're looking for reasons to discredit Seattle. Trust me, I feel they are overrated by fans here on the Zone and WAY overrated by the media, but I doubt STL will be a bigger threat to us in the division. Personally, I don't think any team will truly threaten us for the division because Seattle will be the 2nd best in the West and they will actually regress from last year. We are the same team as last year, but with a franchise QB that actually has an offseason as the starter to work with. You could place any team in the NFL into our division and we would still take it.
As I stated previously in this thread, STL is not the thorn in our side that people here make them out to be. If Akers can make a kick that every other kicker in the NFL would nail, we win both games against them. Not to mention the tipping of our plays. If they had our number, they would have blown us out.
Arizona flat out sucks.
None of these teams will be a true threat. Seahawks will get a wildcard spot with a 10-6 record. Rams will be 8-8 or 9-7, still won't make the playoffs.. Arizona will be 5-11.
