Hass is still young...

I know he's had health issues, but I think it would be silly to get rid of him. Look at Kurt Warner. He's almost 40, has had a lot of injury issues, but lately has had two or three really great seasons at an advanced age. It'd be silly to compare Hass to Favre, since Favre is such a genetic mutation when it comes to never missing a start, but even factoring in the injury risk, I think Hass is way to valuable to the team. He at least gives me hope that the team could win the game (at kickoff, at least). What about Wallace? You know when Hass went down against the 49ers at the end of the first half you were thinking exactly the same thing that I was, even though the 'hawks were only down 3 (if I remember right): They're done. Yeah, he could go .500 for a few games when the Seahawks were good. But he's never going to lead the team to win games that they have no business winning.

As for the defense, the best idea I've heard is to trade Lofa. LB just isn't a high value position. Our payroll is way too high there. Hawthorne has proven a capable (and much cheaper) replacement and now may be the best time to get maximum value from Lofa in a trade.

Eddie Utah's Merry Christmas Picks

I just got done breaking down tomorrow's games and am amazed at how many potentially lucrative picks are available. You can practically parlay the entire NFC East. A three-way tie means they all have to win. The Jets may be in Seattle, but the Seahawks just put their fifth starting offensive lineman on IR. Miami is a mere 3.5 point favorite in Kansas City and New England is home against a Cardinals team that hasn't won on the East Coast this year and is essentially locked into their playoff spot.

I also like Denver to clinch the AFC West over Buffalo and Tampa Bay to stay alive at home versus San Diego.

Here's the whole list:

CLEVELAND -3 over Cincinnati
ST. LOUIS +5 OVER San Francisco
TENNESSEE +2.5 over Pittsburgh
OAKLAND +7 over Houston
MINNESOTA -3 over Atlanta
WASHINGTON +5 over Philadelphia
Carolina +3.5 over GIANTS
CHICAGO -4 over Green Bay

Eddie in the Money Superpicks

New Orleans -7 over DETROIT
Miami -3.5 over Kansas City
NEW ENGLAND -8 over Arizona
Jets -3.5 over SEATTLE
TAMPA BAY -3.5 over San Diego
DENVER -6.5 over Buffalo
