Rumor has it the Hawks might draft well but still end up sucking.
I'm just fucking with you Slim, to bad you did not take the bait.
In all seriousness, the Hawks have had two nice drafts on paper but don't seem like they're moving forward fast enough. I would still pick the Cards and the Niners to battle it out for the division title.
I don't think Pete Carrol wil be a winner long term and losing Holmegrim will hurt. He might be a walrus faced cock sucker but he knows football.
And while your loyalty to Hasslback is touching, he is not the future of that franchise. HE was a good QB who had a few great years and is on the downside of his career. Injuries will likely happen more not less as he gets older and it's injuries that have derailed him over the years.
Having a stud tackle will help keep him up right and perhaps prolong his career but I'd bet dollars to donuts in thee years he won't be starting and if Whitehurst is still around Hawks fans will be calling to replace him.
