For the past 6 years, the Seahawks and Cardinals have held the title of NFC West champions while columnists and prognosticators have predicted San Francisco supremacy. After week 6, Seattle and Arizona are tied for division champ and games in week 7 (@Seattle) and week 10 (@Arizona) may play a critical role in deciding the future of the division.
I can't help but see a lot of parallels between the two teams. Both are run by powerful head coaches with build-through-the-draft GMs. Both teams have major questions at the QB position and have seen a lot of 2009 starters leave (either through trades or free agency). Both teams have opportunistic defenses and have won games on the backs of defenses and special teams. Both teams were written off before the season started but have won games they weren't supposed to win.
Before Sunday's game, I'd like to take the opportunity to open up a dialog between Field Gulls and Revenge of the Birds and answer any questions you have about the Seahawks or Sunday's matchup. If anyone wants to start a similar FanPost at Fieldgulls, I'm sure it would be appreciated.
