The review today is going to test me. Naked Gun 2 1/2 doesn't lend itself well to discussing wins but we're going to give it a shot. Oh, and just as an aside, I'm 7-5 in my picks against the spread going into tonight's game, so not bad for the first week.
"I feel like such a fool. I should have never doubted you. There, there. You had no way of knowing the man you were dating was a vicious, murdering sociopath." I'm sorry Hawks. I shouldn't have doubted you. Granted, you hadn't won in New York since 1983 and you hadn't won a game in the eastern time zone in more than 3 years, but I still should have had faith.
"For a man in a wheelchair, he certainly gets around marvellously." Good grief, that team was the walking wounded by the end of the day. But when it results in the powerhouse Whitehurst-to-Baldwin hookup, you can't argue with it. While I'm a little disappointed the bye week comes after a huge road win and it tends to kill momentum, from an injury standpoint, it comes at a great time.
"Now, Jane, what can you tell us about the man you saw last night? He's Caucasian. Caucasian?
"I don't recall your name on the guest list. That's OK. I sometimes go by my maiden name." To Brandon Browner, who is more than welcome back into the party. He may have single-handedly saved the Seahawks season. You can work with 2-3 a lot easier than you can 1-4. While San Francisco is playing out of their minds right now, you have to think Alex Smith will remember who he is the next couple weeks and the Seahawks should be able to take advantage with games against Cleveland and Cincinnati the next couple weeks.
"Looks like the cows have come home to roost." The Giants cows (aka their awful running game and inability to stop the run) came home to roost yesterday. Credit the Seahawks defense and their duct-taped and super-glued offensive line. The O-line definitely gave up some sacks which was disappointing, but when they didn't do that, they gave both Jackson and Whitehurst time to throw and what a difference that made. Red Bryant and Chris Clemmons had themselves another nice game as well.
"Do you gamble? Every time I order out." If you gambled with me this week, you would have at least covered the commission and put a nickel or two into the bank. Plus, unlike Lee Sterling or the Dixie Dynamo, I didn't charge you $99 to break even.
