WR Darrell Jackson rested his sore knee for a second consecutive day. The team expects him to start Sunday night. Jackson watched practice in uniform. … DT Rocky Bernard (foot) also sat out, as did CB Kelly Herndon, who rested a sore toe. The team put Herndon on the injury report as probable. Aside: I would be stunned if he missed this game with anything less than a debilitating injury. He has started every game this season, and this week carries a little extra meaning because he broke into the league with the Broncos. … The rest of the injury report remained unchanged. Note: I’ll be driving home now. The plan is to check in later, as usual.

    Mike, I know there isn’t a large body of evidence, but which tackle do you think picked up the most slack for Tubbs’ absense?

    Earlier I was thinking Rocky just couldn’t bring it with that foot, but his impact is usually more felt in collapsing the front of the pocket in the pass rush. I recorded and watched the Green Bay game in a hurry at 1AM, so I’m not sure, but I think Rocky did the most to control the interior of the Green Bay line. Your thoughts?

  2. The DBs must be licking their chops with a rookie QB starting his first game.

    I’ve heard several readers say Djax has a degenerative knee. I’ve never heard a medial diagnosis by the team or through the team via the media that verifies this. It’s possible they have said so and I missed it. What do you know?

    I think John McGrath should do a story on Mike Shanahan’s tan.
    Also a suggestion: Craig Terrill change his jersey to #72 and grow a moustache. Then, go into Denver and block one more FG. Big Red: his injury was of “degenerative nature” I remember hearing last summer. Which is why they allowed him to come back so slowly. He’ll need all the rest he can get going up against Champ Bailey for half the game.

    not sure if many of these guys would catch the reference! (the internet is a young science…) he odes kind of look like mr. nash, though…

    If you don’t know your Nash, Green and Bryant, get done edified before returning to the blog.

    Cutler can throw the ball. If they are licking their chops, I hope they don’t go home hungry.

    The defense should feel dissed by the Broncos decision to start a rookie QB against them.

    I don’t care how good his arm is, or how well he played in preseason, there’s no way he can be ready for the speed of a *real* game or the complex deceptions of a *real* defense.

    So the Seahawks D is just going to have to school him. It’s a respect thing, y’know?

    Agreed. No way in heck a rookie QB should have success in his first ever NFL start. Stack the box and double Walker. Score early and control the clock. Easy win.

    As we saw with Hasselbeck’s return to a real game on monday, even a seasoned veteran like he is was surprised by the speed and chaos of a real game. If we are savvy, we’ll take advantage of the rookie EARLY before he gets accustomed to it. First quarter we need to turn him into a turnover king, make a couple defensive TDs, get the lead and then let our choreography take over. Take the early lead, use the running game, long drives from the offense to allow for shorter periods of quick, aggressive defense. Topped off by great special teams work and there we have it. Victory in Denver.
