I don’t really have much to say about the game this Sunday. It’s taking place in the afternoon on Christmas Eve, so I would think you have other things you could be doing. But, if while you’re doing those other things, you notice a football game on in the background, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Ezekiel Elliott made a bet with Eric Dickerson that he’d run for 200 yards on the Seahawks, which coincides with his return from the 6-game suspension that wiped out two of my fantasy teams’ playoff hopes in utter, contemptible failure last week. Part of me thinks it would be delightful for the Seahawks – with a healthier Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright – to smack his ass right back down, but honestly? I could kinda see it happening.
What has this defensive line done the last two weeks to inspire any semblance of confidence? Absolutely nothing.
And yet, even if we do somehow keep Elliott in check, you have to figure that just opens up everything in the passing game. We might see the best game out of Dak Prescott since the LAST time Ezekiel Elliott took the field, which isn’t at all surprising or hot of a taek, and which makes Dak’s offensive rookie of the year award in 2016 completely ridiculous when the REAL offensive ROY was right there on his own team.
For as down as I am on the Seahawks, I don’t think this game will be as bad as the 42-7 drubbing we saw against the Rams last week, so that’s something I guess. I mean, it’s not like the Cowboys are world-beaters on defense or anything; Russell Wilson and the Seahawks will get theirs. In a lot of ways, I could see this game looking like last year’s Christmas Eve Fuckfest against the Cardinals: high scoring, and disappointing at the end.
If I’m wrong, then great, the Seahawks will improve to 9 wins and will still be in the hunt for a playoff spot in some way, shape, or form. If I’m right, however, then the Seahawks will be officially eliminated from the playoffs for the first time since 2011, and the front office will have a lot of ‘splainin’ to do. Is that an offensive reference nowadays? Does anyone even GET that reference? I don’t care.
Season’s Greetings and whatnot. Did you know it’s actually Season’s Greetings and not just Seasons Greetings? You gotta have that apostrophe in there if you want to be grammatically correct! Or, I can just go fuck myself, your choice.
