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.

    welcome back josh wilson

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    good to see hackett as well

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    that’s a crap call on lofa

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    dj is dropping balls. doesn’t usually happen

  • cwu91

    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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • cwu91

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

  • cwu91

    Lofa….the screen killer, lol

  • cwu91

    Nice tackle Babs

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    man, it’s quiet

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    lofa overpursued

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    nice play by grant to support the run

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • cwu91

    Nice 4th down D…they strung that out perfectly

  • cwu91

    Hawkblogger, are you going to the game next weekend?

  • cwu91

    Pollard getting involved

  • cwu91

    Wonder if Abraham regrets not signing with Seattle??

  • cwu91

    Nice kick Josh!

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    good to see that kick

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    yep, i’ll be at the game next week

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    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. :)

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    way too much time in the pocket

  • cwu91

    Norwood’s got some wheels

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    lofa is not having a great game

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • cwu91

    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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • cwu91

    Section 207….nice catch Bobby

  • cwu91

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    yes! 3rd and 1 conversion. Sweet!

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    chris gray got eaten alive again

  • cwu91

    Roll Matt out Mike

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • cwu91

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    horrible. horrible. this game is turning bad

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    mo’s hurt

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    left hand

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    sweet play. Those two are blood brothers.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • cwu91

    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.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    get off the field on 3rd down!!!

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    all day in the pocket today. no pressure.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    oh, julian was held on that play

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    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.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    3 and out. just what the dr ordered.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    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.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    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.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • cwu91

    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

    Seneca making good decisions

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    mo should have gotten more out of that screen

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    looks like the saints won’t be coming to seattle

  • cwu91

    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!

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    josh brown now leads the seahawks in special teams tackles

  • cwu91

    Josh, LOL

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    whew. marcus looks okay.

  • cwu91

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

  • cwu91

    Sheesh, Anderson is older than I am…barely

  • cwu91

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

  • cwu91

    Leave your feet, bad things happen

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • cwu91

    Woot!….that was beautiful running by Mo

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    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

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    son of a… that’s just ugly.

  • cwu91

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

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    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.

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    oh, jesus. time to get on the treadmill.

  • cwu91

    Come on D…show yourself

  • cwu91

    Plenty of time left..lets go O!

  • http://xanga.com/lorit1998 Hawkgirl

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

  • cwu91

    Why are we not running the ball?

  • http://xanga.com/lorit1998 Hawkgirl

    Charlie Frye anyone?

  • cwu91

    Weaver out of the single back……finally

  • cwu91

    Damn…holding wiped out another nice run by Mo.

  • cwu91

    Let’s go O!

  • cwu91

    Pound weaver

  • cwu91

    Weaver out of the singleback again…another first down

  • cwu91

    Run the trap here

  • cwu91

    Nicely done Seneca

  • cwu91

    Lets go D! Make a play…

  • cwu91

    Norwood got hammered on that

  • cwu91

    Nice tackle Babs

  • cwu91

    Nice pass to Hacket

  • cwu91

    And a good route adjustment by Nate

  • cwu91

    Run the high post here

  • cwu91

    Nice pass Seneca

  • cwu91

    Holmgren wasn’t happy with that kick…squib it

  • cwu91

    Kick it to the other side now

  • https://www.blogger.com/profile/08985670056942905008 hawkblogger

    maddening

  • cwu91

    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!

  • cwu91

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