All I can say to the members of the Carolina Football team is welcome to the Thunder Dome!
Over the past week, I have had to go thru some rather intense therapy sessions to get over the fact my hometown team, the Detroit Lions, got royally screwed in their playoff against the Dallas Cowboys.
With a lot of alcohol and some really top-notch swearing, I got thru my disappointment and now can focus on my adopted team, the Seattle Seahawks.
This game, while it may start out as a battle, is going to end up a blood bath with the Hawks coming out on top 31-14.
I predict that on Sunday, the media is going to be talking about the offense and how well they were able to distribute the ball to Paul Richardson, Doug Baldwin, Like Willson and Jermaine Kearse. In fact, I predict that Richardson is going to catch a bomb from Russell Wilson early on and it will go down as at least a 60 yard TD.
I have no worries about that defense, ranked number 1 in the NFL. They are going to get to Cam Newton…they are going to frustrate him and they are going to contain him. There will be no “Superman” poses at Century Link. I’m pretty sure at the start of the fourth quarter, there will be camera shots of Cam Newton on the sidelines with a Gatorade towel over his head so no one can seem…well, you can fill in the blanks on that.
This game will be a message to the rest of the playoff teams that the Seahawks are just getting started.
Bring some earplugs cause the house is gonna rock!
