The Lone Wolf....

by: Michael Steffes

...Is the lovely, Pat Yasinskas, who I think covers the NFC South for ESPN.

Anyway, you may have noticed that ESPN.Com is also previewing the upcoming NFL Season today. Here is the Hawks preview.

Anyway, under their panel of experts, Pat Yasinskas is the only one who thinks the Seahawks will win the NFC. He gives Mike Holmgren coach of the year to go along with it. He gives the SB to Indy, but we can let him slide.

Only two writers, the excitable Len Pasquarelli and Matt Williamson, pick against the Hawks in the division. Thankfully Pasquarelli didn't pick us. Who knows what could have happened then? As for Williamson, well he has been picking against the Hawks for a while, ranking us a mere 17th in the power rankings done throughout the offseason.

What is almost disturbing is the amount of "experts" picking the Cowboys. Other than Yasinskas the new Seahawk Hero, and Mr. Trustworthy Mike Sando taking the Eagles, all experts pick either the Boys or New Orleans, with NO only getting 2 entries. If you are counting at home that's 12 votes Big D, 2 votes Big Easy, and one a piece for Philly and Seattle. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out. ~END~
