I can see the Hawks marching down the field …


You won't be able to watch the Hawks tonight unless you have the NFL Network, know someone who has the NFL Network, can drive to Seattle and watch it there or have a favorite watering hole that will have it on.

Otherwise you'll have to visualize it while listening to the radio (5 p.m.; 790-AM).

To get your brain's imagination started, I recommend these stories for background.

From the Times, the weather could play a big part tonight, but probably not as big a role as San Francisco's Frank Gore.

In the P-I, Clare Farnsworth explains how Seattle's goals are still within reach, even tonight, and Ted Miller gives us perspective on the perspective former Cougar Robbie Tobeck gained through his illness.

The News Tribune's Dave Boling doesn't begrudge the NFL Network televising the game, he just thinks it's too hard on the players to bounce back for a Thursday night encounter, and he's right. Mike Sando explains why Spokane won't be seeing the game over the air like Seattle.

And from the Herald check Scott Johnson on the NFL's television decision and his piece on the Hawks' offense.
