Seahawks vs Rams: I Laughed, I Cried

To borrow a sissified expletive from Mike Holmgren: My goodness. What a bizzarre game. Sloppy play and miscues kept Seattle running erratically like a nitrous-injected Yogo with sugar in the tank. Injuries and ineptitude kept St. Louis from sustaining anything outside of the errant gifts Seattle gave them, like a hobo winning a grand prize drawing for a Cadillac and immediately crashing it it into a highway divider.

At least the game was entertaining. How so?

Things that made me laugh.
  • Lofa Tatupu tackling Steven Jackson by the hair. That never gets old.
  • After Jackson's 53 yard touchdown romp, he awkwardly jumped up to perform the St. Loser version of the 'Lambeau Leap'. Since there was a high railing, he had to jump, grab and climb like he didn't belong in Shawshank. So a crowd mobbed him with love, right? Wrong. Let's just say there is one very happy dude in St. Loser that will have memories of Steven Jackson patty-cake coitus for the rest of his life.
  • A concussed Mark Bulger trying to force a shovel pass into a pile of linemen. Yes, I would say he is impaired at that point.
  • Gus Frerotte's face.

Things that made me say 'what the fuck?'

  • The rediculous blitzes coming after Hasselbeck, and the lack of running play calls to keep it honest. Really. If Holmie doesn't start calling more run plays, he'll be calling in a stretcher for Hass.
  • Claude Wroten grabbing Rob Sims' helmet by the face mask and throwing it 25 yards downfield -- without a penalty.
  • Rob Sims' cavalcade of missed assignments.
  • Nate Burelson's mishandling of near everything.
  • Josh Brown kicking like he's still full of turkey.

Things that made me cheer.

  • Seattle's defense continuing to make plays despite how the offense hung them out to dry for 35+ minutes.
  • Josh Wilson killing that kickoff return. Actually, I love the blocking on that play even more.
  • Leonard Weaver moving a pile for 4 yards. You know Holmgren will be calling that again soon. It's one of Mack Strong's old staples, but I don't recall Weaver getting the call. Hopefully we'll see more dives like this in his future.
  • Mo Morris breaking a big run. How long has it been since we've seen something like that? How long is my dick?

Thanks for reading. Good luck with the post-turkey-day-work-blues.

  1. I don't know why you wouldn't want to see Mo bust more long runs, hater. Pfffft.
