Patrick Kerney: Ready to feast on Eli's soul.
I'm not here to talk trash about the Giants. They're the defending world champs, and they are once again a formidable team. They are what the Seahawks are trying to become.
However, I'm not about to concede Sunday's game. Why?
-If you watch ESPN enough, you start to believe the NFC East is populated by Terminators, T-Rexes and Tasmanian Devils. Surely the puny Seahawks must have an awful record against such an dominant division, right?
How about 9-1 since the start of 2005 (including the last nine in a row), with the single loss in OT at FedEx Field?
-Yeah, Seattle is only 18-27 on the road since 2003, but NYG is only 19-29 at home over the same period. The G-men have a long history of simply failing to show up for games at the Meadowlands, so this would be a PRIME spot for the Hawks to break through with a big win in the Eastern Time Zone.
-While the Hawks get a bunch of players back this week, the Giants are of course without Plax. Shouldn't the Seahawks take his suspension almost as bulletin board material? If the next game was against the Cowboys or Eagles, I HIGHLY doubt that Burress would have been suspended by the team.
Time to step up, Hawks... Don't lose and make me look like a Schmuck.
