There are few things more enjoyable than watching your team win it's game on Sunday, and then settle into the ol' recliner to watch two division rivals knock the snot out of each other.
Either team losing is good. If the Cards would have won going away or got blown out, they would have had some additional motivation for our game against them this week.
Now, they have a short week to recover from a pretty brutal loss. Playing in front of the home crowd in the opener always helps, but this was probably the best outcome the Hawks could have hoped for.
We'll have to see if their center remains sidelines for that game as well. He left midway through tonight, and their o-line cannot afford more injuries (they already lost one starter at left tackle during the pre-season).
More later. By the way, I plan on hosting a game thread here during the broadcast on Sunday for people to post on as we watch the game. Hope to see you there.
