What a game. Seahawks win on a lot of strange stuff, including a ST PR from Nate Burleson. Thanks to Incognito for going, well, incognito and helping us out on a 15 yard penalty to set up a nice kick return. The Rams made me scratch my head as they went for it on 4th down twice in field goal range---one was 4th and 5---and failed both times. Thanks to a little luck, a lot of our backup clutch skills, and the Rams pure stupidity, we're well on our way to the playoffs, in SPITE of injuries.
Chris Spencer played at C with Tobeck out, and played phenomenal. DJack was awesome. Hackett was clutch. Branch was solid. Mo Morris was awesome. Seneca did great outside the two fumbles. Our defense was back to bend and dont break, and came up big every time it needed to, save the final Rams DRIVE. Placke sucked. Scoobs was horrible save for his big tackle to end the game. Our special teams weren't helping, but in the end, they saved the day. Josh Brown hit the clutch game winner from 38 yards out. This leads one question:
At what cost. We lost Mo Morris in the final seconds of the game to what appeared to be an arm injury. Orlando Pace tore his biceps, and should be done for the year. Travis Fisher went down again. Only two guys on our final injury list played in the game---Babs and Burles. Tubbs was put on IR. DD Lewis might soon follow. Hopefully next week, we'll be much healthier. We're 6-3 with several guys on IR or inactive from injuries...and with a TON of guys playing while injured. Wait until we get healthy. Endure the bad to reap the sweetest rewards. :).
