---The Mariners have a six-game homestand the first week of the NFL season, therefore the Seahawks won't be able to play in Qwest Field on Sept. 11 or 12. So that's why I'm calling for the Seahawks to play the Chargers in the first game of the season on Thursday, Sept. 7. TOMLINSON! ALEXANDER! NBC! (If Alexander comes back to Seattle)
---Three national television games for the Seahawks (Sept. 7 vs San Diego, Nov. 27 at Denver, Dec. 10 vs New York Giants). The San Diego and New York games will be on NBC, while the Denver game is on ESPN.
---The NFL wants to save the Giants-Seahawks matchup for later in the season. I'd be very shocked if that matchup isn't a prime time game. To paraphrase Bob Papa, "WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO JAY FEELY?"
---I'm going to be in St. Louis for a couple of days in late October, so I want a Seahawks-Rams matchup on Oct. 29. The Seahawks will travel to Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City Dec. 17, which falls during winter break. There's a method to my madness.
--Somehow, I don't think the NFL will give the Seahawks a later bye again. Expect an earlier bye. I'm predicting a Week 5 bye.
The OFFICIAL 2006 schedule will be released in April.
