I gracefully disagree. This will be a game of FGs and maybe a goaline opportunity, and I trust Fargas/LaMont more than Maurice Morris to pound it in.

While the Seahawks D would be a better play, they are usually off the WW whereas the Raiders D would probably still be there where you could pick them up for a sneaky play. Seattle playing without Hass and SA and Engram and an o-line that has seen better days and the weather not looking so nice could mean cha-ching for the Raiders D. I sure hope so. Picked them up so I could sit NEP D against the Colts.

Is it ever NOT raining in Seattle? If there was any team in the NFL I would trust to take care of the ball in the rain, it would be Seattle...

This is kind of like suggesting that we should bet against Buffalo because it's snowing...

That said, I do think Oakland will have a decent day, but I'm still taking Seattle's D over Oakland's in this one...

That's a solid assessment, however it's a little different right now than normal. Having lived in Seattle for the last 25 years I can say that this rain is far worse than normal. Plus, there's a ton of wind whipping around. I can see the stadium from where I work so I know exactly what the conditions are right now and I have to think both teams' passing game is going to suffer tonight.

As for the retractable roof question, that's our baseball stadium, not the football stadium (they're right across the street from one another).

Sounds to me like those conditions might favor the more mobile QB... I'm guessing Wallace has the advantage over Walter...

In my very deep 14 team league both DEFs were on our WW, and I had #6 spot and I knew the manager w/ the #5 spot needed a DEF.

The bufoon took OAK, and I was completely shocked that I ended up with SEA in my inbox! Their remaining schedule is STUDLY!

Oh and 19 points for me thus far before the half is Suh-weet! ;-D
