After a couple years absent, the Hawks are finally back on Monday Night Football, facing their rivals, the St. Louis Rams. Oh, and we're also playing on a Thursday night on NFL Network against Micheal Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles. The great thing about these two games is they're both at HOME, so we will get a rare opportunity to show how loud and extraordinary Quest Field can be.

As for the schedule overall, it looks rough. Starting out the season on the road is never an easy task, and it doesn't help it's against the 49ers. The only real easy games I see the Hawks having is the Bengals and Cardinals at home, but that's about it.

There are a total of five 10:00 AM games scheduled, with the Seahawks having to play the entire NFC East this year.

And just to add to the pain, the Hawks will have to play 4 of their first 6 games on the road. Ouch.
