Took a few days off to let the links pile up and overwhelm you on Friday with a mass of information to get you ready for the weekend. Perhaps the wind that hit the Sound blew away all of the bad vibes surrounding the Hawks scuffling offense.

Let’s start with the News Tribune … In today’s Football Friday section, Frank wrote about who else? Shaun Alexander and his running style. I’m not going to lie, judging by what he says, I don’t think Shaun really has an idea of what the problem is.

Dave’s column from Thursday was about the Hawks losing their edge at Qwest Field.

Darren wrote a nice story on special teams with some funny quotes from Brandon Mebane. Here’s the opponent box for the Rams.

Marc Bulger will play on Sunday.

Here’s another positive note for the Rams, their run defense has improved.

The Rams are so thin at receiver that they signed Travis Taylor.

Because the Rams have used so many new guys at receiver, they are forced to learn on the job. Tight end Dominque Byrd pleaded no contest to a DUI charge this week.

    Nce agian Sa nevers says anything about hitting the hole harder. ONly that he has been hitting the hole. IN other owrds going to the hole were teh play is designed. That has not been working. In the past, if he saw the hole was not there were teh play was designed he would improvise, all he is saying is he has not been doing that and will again. DUrin gthe 05 season WJ and HUtch did an interview and was asked about SA, and one of the things they said was that what was great about Sa was that they did not have to try to open the hole the play was designed for, as long as the opened something he woudl find it. This year he has not been doin tthat as much. He has been going to th ehole the play has been designed for adn in most cases there has been nothing there. Now he is going to be more creative, if the hole is not there he will find something. NOt hard to understand but of course you ahve to actually read what he said and nto add your own owrds like hard and what not.

  2. Bill Simmons take on Holmgren is funny. I don’t agree he should be fired, but I like the line – “Holmgren screwed up the basic video game scenario by going for the TD on 4th down in a two possesion game. The average fan should not be smarter than the head coach.” – paraphrasing.

    That photo is priceless, I’m still laughing at it. Way to make my day Frank!

    I mean Ryan!

  5. Simmons “hates” the Seahawks because he bet on them to beat the Steelers.

    A pretty stupid bet.
