Slow Starts Happen On The West Coast As Well

There are valid reasons to wonder if the travel and time change leads to slow starts for the Hawks. All of us that have watched the team for years have seen it happen under every coach and against almost any foe.

I just want to point out the Hawks have started slow in the PST and fast in the EST this season, so it's far from a guarantee.

The last two weeks we've fallen behind 9-0 (@Rams) and 10-0 (Bears @Home). We also started fast in Cleveland (21-9 @ halftime), and slow in Arizona (7-17 @ half).

Tomorrow is a pretty big game if we want to even toy with the idea of being ready if GB takes a step back in the conference. A fast start would certainly be welcome.

If they win the toss, i'd like to see them kick away....let the defense establish momentum on the road.

yeah, Mitch in the Morning on KJR said he hates it when the Hawks win the toss at home because then the opposing team gets a possession to start the 2nd half with half the crowd still out buying hot dogs and taking a leak.

Same can be true for us on the road. It's nice to have that first possession of the 2nd half.
