  1. Kenny says:

    After a terrible disappointing loss to Miami, this is a game the Seahawks need to win-esp. if Sherman and Browner get suspended for 2-4 games after this wk. I am not okay with our loss to miami but if we win the bears game, then it actually works out better for us in regards to NFC tiebreakers. But the Seahawks better learn to win a road game and the defense should come out angry this week as the bear’s O-Line is decimated.

    On a side note, how come we keep getting Tim Ryan calling our games? They should be sending Kenny, Goose and Moose to call this game. TB @ Denver and Sea @ Chi are the best NFC match ups on SUnday
