3 units on Seattle PICK () (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Mike McCarthy went 1-3 last year in the preseason. For a new coach, that's quite a rare feat! If he doesn't feel pressure to try to win out of the gate in his first year, why would he feel pressure to win in his second? Mike Holmgren, in contrast, has a winning preseason record. The Seahawks are very motivated to win right now. They are coming off a terribly dissapointing season. After getting to the Super Bowl in 2005, they had a dissapointing year in 2006, squeaking into the playoffs and lucking out vs. Dallas to make it out of the first round. One year wonder? No good anymore? These are the questions they heard and asked themselves last year. Well, 2007 is a new season! What better way to put 2006 behind them then to send a message early on that they are back? We believe they will play harder than most the entire preseason. If not to convince others, to convince themselves and gain some confidence back. Last week Seneca Wallace looked awesome so with him getting most of the reps, we have no worries about this Seattle offense. The QB of concern on this field will be Brett Favre who looked horrible last week. Despite his performance, Green Bay won the game so there isn't as much pressure for improvement this week as is probably deserved. Seattle is the better team with better depth. We'll take the points, especially against a team with a head coach that appears to put little emphasis on winning in the preseason.
