But in the end, I think it is the Seattle defense that is the difference in this game. Will they contain Larry Johnson?
And so we have it. The Chiefs mopped Arrowhead Stadium with the collective face af the Seahawks' defense. It is what it is. But as always, I learned a few things in the process:
- Robs Sims took the backup LG job from Chris Spencer.
- When faced with a rookie RDE that is assigned containment in a pass rush, Tom Ashworth is tolerable at right tackle.
- Seneca Wallace is a legit backup QB. He could start on several teams.
- Ken Hamlin is still mistake prone.
- When in doubt, opponents should run right at Wistrom and Peterson.
- Julian Peterson is the Seahawks' best linebacker.
- Julian Peterson is the Seahawks' best defender.
- I miss Shaun Alexander more every game.
- Mo Morris is not the answer. Not with 12 carries/25 yards.
- Seneca Wallace has a stronger arm than Matt Hasselbeck -- inside 20 yards.
- Much of Darryl Jackson's success is because if his rapport with Hasselbeck. Without it, he fades deeply into average.
- Deion Branch is more than a receiver. He's a football player.
- This is hopefully Grant Wistrom's last season with the Seahawks. 10 tackles in seven games begs for using his roster spot with developing talent.
- Bob Cassulo should have his wife proofreading his resume by now.
- Deion Branch already has twice as many catches as Nate Burleson.
- Jerramy Stevens isn't in nealy as good of shape as last season.
That's all I got. I'm gonna go down a beer and play with the dog.
Go Seahawks. Rah.
