Battle of the defenses that is all I have to say. Don’t get me wrong I love my hawks but that o-line just doesn’t look that great.
Giving Nick Foles is an upgrade to an extent for the Rams but I think he was more of a product of Chip Kelly’s system. Both teams do have a little flux at the O-line but the Rams haven’t had a top 15 rushing game since 2001 and they haven’t figured out what to do with their 2013 8th overall draft pick Tavon Austin.
I believe the Rams offense will struggle just a tad with Seattle’s front looking stronger than ever I expect Jordan Hill and Frank Clark to make some plays this game. If Seattle can survive with some Wilson broken play drills (which will happen) Jimmy Graham with that speed freak Tyler making some offensive magic happen I think we can survive this tough away game.
Statements that need to be made this game:
- We can WIN without Kam Chancellor making his horrible “Agent” that much more nervous during the holdout.
- Yes our O-line can hold the line against a tough front 7.
- Our kick return game is not just a pre-season hype train.
My gut says Seattle takes this win but it will not be pretty whoever takes the lead by 14 points in the 1st half will for sure be the victor and will set the pace so with that said lets GO HAWKS!!!
