Knocking Down the West

Hawk on Hawk Action: SEA @ ARI review

November 13, 2017

​​​Good day 12s!

 

What another fine fine week of football! Let's break it down!

 

The Good: I loved to watch this game. It might've been the fact that I was smashed by halftime, but I thought the Seahawks owned this game. As I thought, we'd be missing Earl Thomas on Defense, but they did a great job keeping the Cardinals at bay and putting points on the board. Blair Walsh showed up Thursday night which is AWESOME! Shaquill Griffin showed that he can easily cover the corner opposite Sherman once again and Russ once again showed his prowess as a damned fine QB, connecting passes and scrambling like he knows how. It's a hard pick for MVP between Baldwin who had a great game, Sheldon Richardson who was there for a couple great turnovers, and Thomas Rawls that showed that our run game is still strong, but I'm tossing this one to Jimmy Graham this week. Man caught everything Wilson threw to him and made the touchdowns for the game. He's here ladies and gents!

The Bad: This is what I was talking about in the early Big Picture segments, how we got out of losses or rough games relatively clean, well our number just came up. Losing Sherman this week hurts, and it's something that the Seahawks and the fans will feel for the rest of the season. however....

The Big Picture: I heard a great bit of advice after the game, "if the loss of a single player takes you out of being a Super bowl contender, you never were a Super Bowl contender." I love Richard Sherman, he has defended that post for years without a whole lot of slip ups. He has been a terror for any quarterback throwing that direction, but the Seahawks will continue to show their strength and grit throughout the rest of the season. They/we cannot go limp at the loss of a weapon even one as large as Sherman. Fear not 12s, there's a lot of season to be played and a lot of hungry young men on the sidelines ready to prove themselves.

We got a long week to Monday Night Football kids, and even better, against the Super Bowl participant award recipients of last season the Falcons. Stay strong 12s, we're not done yet. With that....Mike Hawk is OUT!
