They played Detroit, Arizona, and a NYG team that was coming off a huge win then hitting the road they were due for an L. Lets see how they play in Chicago.
Its not like our gameplan is gonna be changed that much. Shaun wasn't running very well to begin with, and our offense finally seems t be rolling.
I agree that the offense looks impressive, but now they will be facing a legit defense.
Living in Chicago they are legit, but i really, really think Deion Branch is gonna tear Tillman, who really isn't good IMO, apart.
He may or may not do that but I cant see the Seahawks winning that game.
Tillman while not an elite CB is still solid. And you better protect Hass because from what I've seen so far your OL is vulnerable to the pass rush. And if we can generate pressure early on Hass, you won't be able to spread the field as much.

We'll focus on stopping the run and then we'll be able to lay off in pass coverage and hopefully stymie Hass' passing attack.

so would you want to hear that rex grossman sprained his ankle getting tackles, or that he fractured his ankle?


ill take the sprain all day long

it's too much of a coincidence to be just a coincidence.

before now i would've said it's just coincedental. now i'm not sure.

since madden 2000 (1999 season) with barry sanders it's happened.

I'm not usually one for conspiracies, but this one has lots of evidence on its side....

01-George- Averaged only 3.2 yds per carry the 2 seasons after being on the cover.

02-Culpepper- Missed 5 games in with a knee injury, then through career high 23 INT's in 02/03.

03-Faulk- Plagued by an ankle injury, Faulk started a career low 10 games. The rams missed the play-offs.

04-Vick- Broke his leg in preseason, missed 11 games.

05-Lewis- Held to 0 INT's for only time in his career.

06-Mcnabb- Injured in first game of season vs. Falcons (sternum). Played hurt the rest of the season with a multitude of injuries before a sports hernia forced him onto IR. Eagles missed out on playofs for 1st time in 4 yrs.

07-Alexander- Fumbles twice (1 lost) in 1st game of season, unheard of previously. Now is injured (foot)

2000 - Barry Sanders abruptly retires before training camp (was he warned of the impending curse?)

2001 - Eddie George enjoys career year, until costly turnover leads to Titan's playoff exit

2002 - Daunte Culpepper leads team to dismal 4–7 record before season-ending knee injury

2003 - Marshall Faulk suffers ankle injury; career diminishes thereafter

2004 - Michael Vick fractures right fibula in preseason game, just one day after Madden is released; sidelined for season

2005 - Ray Lewis fails to post a single interception (after grabbing 6 the previous year), and injury forces him to miss the final game of the season; the Ravens also fail to make the playoffs after winning the division in the 2003–2004 season

2006 - Donovan McNabb suffers sports hernia in first game and undergoes season-ending surgery in November; T.O. feud escalates; Eagles finish 6–10 after reaching Super Bowl in 2005–2006 season

2007 - Shaun Alexander is out 2-4 weeks with a bone crack

One of these doesnt fit with the others. Which one is it?
