A pick …

Drum roll, please.

Or not. As you likely read earlier today, I don’t feel there should be much drama in this one. The Seahawks’ main concern is handling the St. Louis front four, plus linebacker James Laurinaitis.

The Rams are 30th in the league against the run. This just in: The Seahawks like to run and do it pretty well.

Again, outside of multiple turnovers, something the Seahawks have been committing the past few weeks, this shouldn’t be close.

Seahawks 35, Rams 10.

And, if you’re not paranoid about all these good tidings yet, there’s this:

  1. Southendzone says:

    Todd, u gonna be at Hawks game or WS? then answer where u’d RATHER be.

  2. The score sounds about right if the Seahawks can stop their 10 point a game giveaway.

  3. GeorgiaHawk says:

    If the Giants get on a roll they may be a factor in the NFC East race, and that would probably mean a lot tougher game for the Seahawks when they play them in NY.
    So I’m hoping the Giants lose a few more by then.

  4. MikeFromNewJersey says:

    Big championship tonight!! Play smart and safe, score early.

  5. montanamike2 says:

    I like reading the comments after the article. I don’t think Tony gets traded personally.

  6. GeorgiaHawk says:

    I know he played in the shadow of Calvin Johnson’s monster game but Kris Durham is looking better each game.

    I kind of wish we could have stashed him somehow.

    From ESPN-

    “Durham’s emergence: He’ll never be the flashy guy, and as Kris Durham told me after Sunday’s game, if he can get 100 yards in a game, that’s a pretty good day, but he’s become a reliable target for Stafford when it matters. He now has three or more catches in five straight games, and his 40-yard grab on Detroit’s final drive, in which he used a slight, slick move to beat the Dallas cornerback to make some room for himself, was massive. For a player who didn’t appear to be a lock to make the team out of training camp, he has put himself in a position where he could be a valuable member of Detroit’s offense for a while.”

  7. GeorgiaHawk says:

    I hope they trade Gonzalez if for no other reason then to not see him play against us in Atlanta.
    He just killed us in the playoffs last season.

  8. Is Calvin Johnson going to play opposite of Durham if he was here. Somehow Sidney Rice probably doesn’t open up things in the same way.

    Gonzalez didn’t kill the Seahawks as much as Gas Bradley did in last year’s playoffs. Now that Gus is doing his thing in Jax, the Seahawks Defense can shut teams down on the road.

  9. That should say Gus Bradley – auto correct strikes again!

  10. MoSeahawk12 says:

    Maybe auto correct was saying his D was gassed at the end of the game because they laid down.

  11. OregonHawk says:

    I don’t think the Seahawk offense is going to have an easy time with the Ram’s D, and the Ram’s O is going to have an even worse time.

    So I am looking for a low scoring game, say 24 to 10

  12. montanamike2 says:

    Just hoping for a win and no injuries.

  13. did anyone catch any of the Cards-Falcons game yesterday? they were routinely doubling Gonzalez around the end zone. full on, two guys just committed to him.

    also – Mathieu looked like a player.

  14. RDPoulsbo says:

    I hear a local movie theater will be re-releasing Hudson Hawk tonight. It’s expected sell more tickets than there will be Rams fans at the Edward Jones Dome.

    The Rams are going to take a savage beating on national TV tonight and I wouldn’t want to blame their fans for not wanting to witness this one.

    45-6

  15. The eighth win also meant the 49ers, who traded Smith to Kansas City so he could run Andy Reid’s West Coast offense this season, would receive an improved draft choice as the second part of the trade. The original trade was Smith for a second-round pick in 2013 and a third-rounder in 2014 … but the third- in ’14 would become a second- if the Chiefs won eight games or more this season. That happened by mid-afternoon Sunday, as the Niners were trudging off the field at Wembley Stadium in London after whipping Jacksonville 42-10. As if San Francisco draft guru Trent Baalke needed more ammo, he now could be looking at six picks in the first three rounds next May: his own first-, second- and third-rounders, plus the second-rounder for Smith, a third-rounder from Tennessee from a draft-weekend 2013 trade, and a pick as high as a third-rounder as a compensatory choice for losing pricy free agents such as Dashon Goldson last spring.

  16. Just get a ‘W’ and no injuries sounds good to me. STL does have a good defense, but I don’t think it’s enough. Lots of focus on Lynch makes me think Russell is going to get his roll on again.

    41-16 SEA

    GO HAWKS!

    Good one!

  18. montanamike2 says:

    I hope the Rams mail it in the way the actors in that movie did.

  19. Where are people getting the idea that St. Louis has a good defense?

    they’re verrrryyy middle of the road. this isn’t a 1pm EST game… this is a night game with 4 extra days of rest.

    They’re berating Kellen Clemens on TV right now.

  20. Screensmoke says:

    Good pass rush defense

  21. Todd Dybas says:

    Hey, South.

    I covered the World Series last night.

    Tonight, I’ll be at MNF, and leave it at that.

  22. The best thing for Tony Gonzalez would be to get traded back to the Chiefs. They love him there and are undefeated.

    The Falcons could get a late round pick which they otherwise wouldn’t have gotten (Gonzalez won’t be signing with anyone after the season so there’s no future compensatory pick for them to help get by Gonzo signing elsewhere).

    The Chiefs could further bolster their roster. If the Chiefs could get home field advantage in the play-offs, they could go to the Super Bowl even though I think there are a handful of teams in the AFC better.

    Gonzalez is going to the Hall of Fame as a Chief so it’s pretty fitting the Falcons could save a few bucks by him to on the cheap back to the Chiefs (rather than keep him for the rest of the year).

  23. I’d go to the Seahawks game in a heartbeat over the World Series. This might not be the case all the time, but this has the makings of a special season. It’s not like one of the World Series teams can clinch tonight so it’s gonna keep going.

  24. You don’t think theAndy Reid playing Martyball will cause the Chiefs to lose yet another first round playoff game? They won’t see Case Keenum or Jason Campbell in the playoffs.

  25. Valid point.

  26. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Since Ray Lewis is part of the MNF team I wonder if he will mention tonight how M-Rob had his number?

  27. raymaines says:

    I’m looking for a shutout. I don’t see any reason why St. Louis should get ten points.
