Game Thread: Seahawks @ Falcons

I admit to not having scouted the Falcons at all. I know they gave the Cars a good game last week on the road and all that the national media coverage has told me (for what that's worth).

Basically, we're looking for a few simple things today:

- Stay healthy
- Play with aggression
- Try to keep the running game going
- Seneca's development
Is he any better than he was last season?

- Who mops up at the RB spot?
It used to be Mo, but he's kind of the starter now.

We've been told that this is a professional locker room with great leaders. I believe that. Winning a game like this would validate those beliefs a bit. Seahawks teams of the past would definitely lose this. My head is telling me we're going to lose, but I'm hoping for a solid victory leading us into the playoffs.

Curious to see how the O-line plays today.

hawkblogger said...

nice runs so far

Anonymous said...

Nice run Mo.....see if they work Hackett in here

cwu91 said...

Shaun almost had that...morning Hawkblogger

hawkblogger said...

congrats, shaun. I wish it could have happened at home.

cwu91 said...

There it is.....WOOT! Congrats Shaun

hawkblogger said...

morning cwu!

hawkblogger said...

welcome back josh wilson

hawkblogger said...

good to see hackett as well

hawkblogger said...

don't be surprised to see the hawks try to get pollard involved. they want him to be another threat in the playoffs

hawkblogger said...

that's a crap call on lofa

hawkblogger said...

julian whiffed

hawkblogger said...

no fire in the falcons eyes. they look like they are checked out. Let's keep it that way

hawkblogger said...

dj is dropping balls. doesn't usually happen

cwu91 said...

Some similarities between Alexander and Dunn this year from a statistics standpoint. Wonder what the cause of the decline was in Atlanta?

Ugh, should have handed that off to Shaun...he had a huge lane

hawkblogger said...

barakka atkins sighting. he's getting some snaps the last two weeks

cwu91 said...

I think your correct on Atlanta...the game has sort of a pre-season feel to it

cwu91 said...

Lofa....the screen killer, lol

cwu91 said...

Nice tackle Babs

hawkblogger said...

man, it's quiet

hawkblogger said...

lofa overpursued

hawkblogger said...

nice play by grant to support the run

hawkblogger said...

great play. we've been nails on 4th downs

cwu91 said...

Nice 4th down D...they strung that out perfectly

cwu91 said...

Hawkblogger, are you going to the game next weekend?

cwu91 said...

Pollard getting involved

cwu91 said...

Wonder if Abraham regrets not signing with Seattle??

cwu91 said...

Nice kick Josh!

hawkblogger said...

good to see that kick

hawkblogger said...

yep, i'll be at the game next week

hawkblogger said...

I was thinking about abraham as well. We likely would not have kearney if we had signed him. Not sure if we're better off. I know abraham isn't. :)

hawkblogger said...

way too much time in the pocket

cwu91 said...

Norwood's got some wheels

hawkblogger said...

lofa is not having a great game

hawkblogger said...

the hawks had an outside shot to lead the NFL in scoring defense, but that TD pretty much kills our chances.

cwu91 said...

Agreed...FA is a bit of a crap shoot. Hugh Douglas was another one that didn't come to pass, thank god.

Yet another on side kick, lol

hawkblogger said...

the offense is stinking it up now. No rhythm. slow tempo

cwu91 said...

Section 207....nice catch Bobby

cwu91 said...

Hackett held on to that one....run the upback mike

hawkblogger said...

yes! 3rd and 1 conversion. Sweet!

hawkblogger said...

chris gray got eaten alive again

cwu91 said...

Roll Matt out Mike

hawkblogger said...

section 207? is that where you'll be? I'm 304 with the meat-eaters...oh shit. what a stupid play by matt.

cwu91 said...

Fall on the ball....jeez these guys have hands of stone

hawkblogger said...

horrible. horrible. this game is turning bad

hawkblogger said...

just pull everyone. we're playing like a bunch of second stringers anyway. grrr.

hawkblogger said...

seemed like a crap call. Hackett should have caught that.

hawkblogger said...

terrible game for hackett. worst game I've seen from him.

hawkblogger said...

mo's hurt

hawkblogger said...

left hand

hawkblogger said...

sweet play. Those two are blood brothers.

hawkblogger said...

c'mon. let's go into halftime ahead.

cwu91 said...

LOL, I wasn't always that blessed. I came home from Germany in 84 to attend the original Battle in Seattle. Those tickets came courtesy of some work my Dad did for Rusty Tillman. Anyway, ole horseface beat the Hawks, and we wound up getting the wildcard.

Stood in line most of the night (in the rain) down by the Kingdome to get the playoff tickets...a strip of three right under the diamond vision in the 300 level.

That game was a fairly rowdy affair....I saw a Raider fan get tagged on the side of the head by a glass whiskey bottle as he was getting escorted out. The game was an absolute hoot. I still wear my old gear from that game to all home games.

So, if you see a middle-age man wearing old team colors that don't quite fit anymore....that would be me.

Beautiful throw and catch right there. Hope Booby gets his hundred catches.

hawkblogger said...

get off the field on 3rd down!!!

hawkblogger said...

all day in the pocket today. no pressure.

hawkblogger said...

oh, julian was held on that play

hawkblogger said...

I can only joke so much about being in the tough section. I'm under cover. Those crazies in the end zones eat raw meat.

I did used to have the best seats in the Kingdome at the 50 yard line, very last row. I was able to touch the dome ceiling. Great way to watch a game, and back then, it was only $10/ticket.

hawkblogger said...

3 and out. just what the dr ordered.

hawkblogger said...

4.6 YPC in the first half. Maybe we should forget passing and just run. :)

I'd expect to see Holmgren leave Hass in for at least one more series. If they score, he will be pulled.

hawkblogger said...

welcome back DJ. that's what I'm used to seeing from him

hawkblogger said...

oops, I guess they already went to Wallace. I'm surprised a bit.

hawkblogger said...

seneca audible. interesting to see how he does on those. decent first result. nice fight for yards by courtney taylor

hawkblogger said...

I'd like to see what Seneca can do in the shotgun. I think he'd be much more dangerous. when he played last year, Mike wasn't allowing any shotgun.

hawkblogger said...

another 3rd and 1 conversion. boo yeah! :)

cwu91 said...

Nice job by hill on that stop. Anyway, a friend of mine here in Anchorage has a strip of five club seats (ah, the joys of being single) and makes it down for every home game.

Mo running well today

cwu91 said...

Seneca making good decisions

hawkblogger said...

mo should have gotten more out of that screen

hawkblogger said...

looks like the saints won't be coming to seattle

cwu91 said...

Nice pass protection....Not! I'd like to see Seneca get a chance to take a shot downfield...he throws a sweet deep ball.

Nice kick Josh!

hawkblogger said...

I thought you said your friend had 5 strip clubs. that really got my attention. :)

hawkblogger said...

josh brown now leads the seahawks in special teams tackles

cwu91 said...

Josh, LOL

hawkblogger said...

that was the closest kerney has got to a sack. mario williams is still without one

hawkblogger said...

whew. marcus looks okay.

cwu91 said...

Sit Marcus, sit....hate to see a repeat of Tampa 06

cwu91 said...

Sheesh, Anderson is older than I am...barely

cwu91 said...

Actually, we work together right down the street from the Great Alaska Bush Company.....maybe a power lunch there in the making : )

cwu91 said...

Leave your feet, bad things happen

hawkblogger said...

look at courtney taylor! new man crush brewing. that guy is attacking the tacklers.

hawkblogger said...

nice conversion. nate is one of the only receivers that takes 3-4 tacklers to be brought down. I love that.

cwu91 said...

Woot!....that was beautiful running by Mo

hawkblogger said...

running game is really showing me something this week. solid blocking. hey, I see Ray Willis in there at right guard.

hawkblogger said...

rob sims and chris spencer with some great blocks on that play, especially sims who walled his guy off to create the hole.

hawkblogger said...

okay. I'm going to risk jinxing the Hawks here. we've got 27 points. we're 9-1 when scoring more than 20 pts this year. We're going to win, even though we're only up by one TD.

of course, our defense is stinking it up right now.

cwu91 said...

Well, you know what they say about stats, right? : )

hawkblogger said...

son of a... that's just ugly.

cwu91 said...

Poor tackling by Lofa on that....gotta wrap him up

hawkblogger said...

okay. now the only times we've allowed 27 or more pts this year, we've lost (Cleveland and New Orleans).

stats are battling for supremacy today.

hawkblogger said...

oh, jesus. time to get on the treadmill.

cwu91 said...

Come on D...show yourself

cwu91 said...

Plenty of time left..lets go O!

Hawkgirl said...

Poor Seneca. He's going to be kicking himself for that one

cwu91 said...

Why are we not running the ball?

Hawkgirl said...

Charlie Frye anyone?

cwu91 said...

Weaver out of the single back......finally

cwu91 said...

Damn...holding wiped out another nice run by Mo.

cwu91 said...

Let's go O!

cwu91 said...

Pound weaver

cwu91 said...

Weaver out of the singleback again...another first down

cwu91 said...

Run the trap here

cwu91 said...

Nicely done Seneca

cwu91 said...

Lets go D! Make a play...

cwu91 said...

Norwood got hammered on that

cwu91 said...

Nice tackle Babs

cwu91 said...

Nice pass to Hacket

cwu91 said...

And a good route adjustment by Nate

cwu91 said...

Run the high post here

cwu91 said...

Nice pass Seneca

cwu91 said...

Holmgren wasn't happy with that kick...squib it

cwu91 said...

Kick it to the other side now

hawkblogger said...

maddening

cwu91 said...

Well....Mission Accomplished..no major injuries and enough ire on the coaches part to warrant disciplined practice this week.

Should be a good game and I can't wait....if you can make it to the exhibition hall Hawkblogger, I'll buy ya a beer.

Happy New Year!

Looks like 4:30EST next Saturday...Redskins at Hawks
