OK, There are certain things that we can count on as this season unfolds, that will be a sure bet 10 times out of 10.
Mike Holmgren will not realize that Mo Ain't Gettin It! I don't give a rats ass what that young man did in Quacker-Ville, he ain't got squat in the NFL. Nada. Ain't happenin fella's. He is, plainly put, the single worst starting RB that the Hawks have ever put on the field. Period. Chump Stats are as follows; 249 yards in 85 attempts for a 2.9 yard average. He racked up an astounding 25 yards against KC fer crysakes. 2.1 yards average. Thats the Mendoza line, Bud. What is there to think about Mike? Drop In Marquise Weeks and shoot the Damned Gauntlet! 148 yards in the last three games for Slo-Mo. Get a Clue Mike.

Tru, as in Marcus Trufant. Its one thing to be a little slower that the speediest of recievers, it's an entirely different thing being beat by them time and time again through stupidity. I could out plan and juke Tru. This is his 4th season, Guy's and he hasn't got one FREAKING INTERCEPTION! What does it take? He has had, get this, 13 ever loving Tackles in the last three games, 13. Hmmm... In his first season, he had 69 solo tackles. Year two, 83, last season, his Superbowl season, he had 55. Ken Lucas anybody? this season, he has 26. Shawn Springs had more killer instinct in his rookie year than this Clown. Bu-Bye!
Losing our Left Gaurd, Steve Hutchinson, Was a mistake that will be a long time in over coming, and it likely cost us Matt Hasselbeck for the next three games, and maybe more. Even if he does make it back on schedule, he will take additional weeks to get to full speed.

Shaun Alexander will not be the rushing TD and or yardage leader for the 2006 season. Not by a longshot. He's expected to miss a fifth week due to his cracked bone in his money maker. His tootsies are healing slower than expected. As well expected, he to will take additional weeks to get up to Shaun-ville speed.
Our Killer defense is getting killed. The one legged,(pulled groin) Damion Huard led, Chiefs lit our asses up for a paultry 499 yards of offense. This is primarily the same defense as last years Superbowl defense and a year older adding key pieces like, Julien "the freak" Peterson to give us on paper, a top five defense. I'm here to tell you that paper is real thin. Our defense has a soft belly and can't stop the run to save it's Kiester. A secondary that is sharp, yet flailing, at the safety spot, and dead at the corners. How we could not depict any portion of that game defensivly is beyond me. We would tease Blitz, they'd burn us with the long ball. We would play cover, they would slap 193 yards rushing on us. I can't remember the last time the Seahawks won at Arrow Head Stadium. Have we?
Maybe this thing is real. The Superbowl losers are playing like they wont see a playoff game. Like many teams before just fall to attrition. Fortunatly for the Seahawks, The Pittsburg Steelers look really pathetic right now at 2 up an 5 down.If we do make the playoffs, Home feild looks as gone as gone can get unless we miraculously sweep the season an the Bears faulter a bit. Damn Guy's, the seasons half over and I don't like the looks of it. In the last first 11 quarters, the Seahawks allowed 19 points. about as good as it gets for nearly three games. In the past 17 quarters, the Hawks have allowed 153 points, with the same group of guy's. Somewhere, they have lost their edge. Where the hell is Grant? Bobby Engram is out and there once was a lil' reciever from Minnisota, that is a bust (name deliberatly withheld to save what little grace is left).
We drop this one to the Raiders and I'll be thinkin, we're gonna be stinkin.

My question is, do we cash it in? Is our Superbowl aspirations over? Will we even make the stinkin Play-offs? The die hard fan in me say's, Hell No! We've got nine games left. The realist in me say's that with the way that our D isn't playing, Mo isn't running and the only two solids are Darryl and Deion, it's looking like we'll be 4 up and 7 down by the time that Matt get's back in the saddle.

  1. If we could have come up with one critical stop we could have easily won that game despite all the other horrible play. I think we can take down the Raiders at home. They have no offense to speak of. As long as Seneca plays similar to what he did in KC we'll be ok. Even with our pathetic D I don't think the Raiders can move the ball.

    Don't jump ship just yet. It's a long season still.

  2. I think you can stick a fork in them because it is over...

  3. Maxhawk: War's over, man. Herm Edwards dropped the big one.
    JoSCh: Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!
    Alba: [whispering] Germans?
    Bluefoot: Forget it, he's rolling.
    JoSCh: And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough... [thinks hard] the tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go! [runs out, alone; then returns] What the fuck happened to the Seahawk fans I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? "Ooh, we're afraid to go with you JoSCh, we might get in trouble." Well just kiss my ass from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this. Edwards, he's a dead man! Art Shell, dead! Lovie Smith-
    Alba: Dead! JoSCh's right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with backup players, but that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.
    JoSCh: We're just the guys to do it.
    Maxhawk: Let's do it.
    JoSCh: LET'S DO IT!!

  4. Great post JoSCh...I've got Flounder's brother's car in the garage, and I'm firing up the blow-torch!

  5. Ooooooh, a really futile and stupid gesture??? I'm all in!

    I don't believe our season is over. I think last game is going to be a wakeup call for the Hawks. As I've said before, Seneca did what he was supposed to do and our defense let us down - but there's a little bit more to that. Seneca didn't sustain the time consuming drives when he needed to for our defense to rest - while he DID get us points and got us the lead with that long ball to Jackson, it was a 30 sec drive. Our defense had just come off of a time consuming drive and was beat tired. It's no wonder that the Cheifs came back to score with an impressive drive - we had no gas.

    But I think our team has their wake up call - on BOTH sides of the ball. The offense will start putting together longer drives, will start clicking and making those plays we need to get a first down. (or maybe Holmgren will start growing balls and take some chip shots downfield to Branch) Our defense will step up and stop the run, we'll cover those longer routes to stop long passes.

    We'll use this Raider game as a stepping stone and dominate the second half of our schedule.

  6. JoSCH, Love it.
    Alba...Huh-uh, We're firing up the Blue's mobile for this one, man...We're on a mission from God. (not Bluefoots mobile)

    MainSqueeze, Looking for an inspiring light here. Thats the point of my rant.

    Sloth, Time sustaining drives require more than just Seneca. they require a running back. I can't understand for the life of me why Mike won't put in Marquise for even one stinking play. He's got nothing to lose at all. Though Senaca could use his feet a bit more even though that would require going against Mike who likes to lock down his QB to his way of doing everything.

  7. You're absolutely right Max, it needs more than just Seneca - and as much as I have faith in MoMo, he's really straining that faith. But that's also where Seneca can step up and lead the team. That's what his job requires. (and yes I do realize that he just started his first NFL game ever, so that the likelihood of him stepping up like that is pretty slim)

    Maybe we can start getting Mack more into play and have him hurdle people - I've noticed this season we win games with Mack hurdling over someone. I want to see Mack hurdle two Raiders on Mon night in a 45-60 yard TD run.

  8. MoMo's per-carry average this year is pretty much the same as SA's. I wouldn't mind seeing Weeks' give it a shot, but I don't think it's the RB that's the problem. It's the blocking, and I don't mean Mack Strong.

  9. Maurice Mo doesn't deserve the blame. I'm sorry...the offensive line is just a shadow of what they were last year. All of a sudden they can offer better pass protection than run protection? And did you notice how the left side of Minnesota's line is providing their running backs 5.9 yards/carry.

    Come on now. You guys are educated fans. You've got to see that losing Hutchinson was a huge loss. If you want to put all of the blame on MoMo then you probably believe that Alexander will have a huge game his first game back. I don't. No way.

    This line just doesn't have the chemistry of last year. The way this team is playing the goal has to be 10-6 and a wild card birth. Home field is out of the question, and really Minnesota shattered our unbeaten streak anyway.

    Face it...we aren't as dominant anymore...and everyone is to blame: the O-Line, defense, quarterback, and the running backs. Only the receivers are having stellar years. The secondary looks porous... Holmgren has his hands full...
