  1. Actually, this is off topic, but a link from ESPN Insider on the difference between Alexander and Morris:

    KC Joyner does the Football Scientist column. Interesting stuff.

    When will the Seahawks be free of FOX. I do not like their coverage, much prefer CBS. Any chance for next year?

  3. Most of us don’t have access to the “insider” so please summarize what Joyner says. If not, I’ll just safely assume that he says Alexander should never see another hand off if the Hawks are to have any playoff success.

  4. PhilKenSebben says:

    I like FOX alot more than CBS. I don’t know why I just do.

  5. as long as the seahawks are in the NFC they will be on FOX

    AFC is on CBS

  6. Fox has the contract for the NFC so the only games on CBS are inter-conference games and those are split so there is no chance that will change by next year. These guys are boring but at least they aren’t irritating, so I guess I view this team as an improvement. The team last week was rat holing on how Philly was losing the game rather than on how Seattle was winning it. Typical east coast bias.

  7. What am I thinking, this is a home game, I don’t have to listen to them. I will be at Qwest Field screaming my lungs out!!

  8. NEWJERSEYMIKE says:

    I dont care either, Im coming into town to see the game too.

  9. Sam Rosen?

    Dee-oh! (remember the last time he called one of the ‘Hawks’ games? He’s obviously not a fan of the Simpsons)

    Better than Siragusa though. And the ‘Hawks will be on CBS only if the game is at home and the visitor is an AFC team.

    ochawk, Joyner breaks down the production of Alexander and Morris on different types of running plays. The first thing to get from the article is that our offensive line ranks among the lowest in the league and at least one member gets beat at the point of the attack 30% of the time, which is terrible. On these runs Alexander is actually slightly better than Morris, but not by much.

    Looking at the numbers Morris run slants and sweeps better than Alexander, but Alexander is more successful on the isolation and off tackle plays.

    The big difference is the draw, where Morris outperforms Alexander by a large margin. The conclusion of the article is that Morris should be getting more playing time because the ineffectiveness of our offensive line leads to the calling of more draw and delay runs.

  11. Walter Jones is starting to get old, Gray officially got old last year, Spencer and Sims havent fully developed yet, Locklear apparently can’t pass block, Ashworth can’t catch a pass, Willis is hurt and Pork Chop is still healthy.

    It’s no wonder the ‘Hawks can’t run.

  12. nighthawk2 says:

    Who the hell are these guys? Sam Rosen? I never heard of these clowns.

    And I like Siragusa.

  13. Surf Hawk says:

    Glad I wasn’t the only person who heard D’oh mispronouced in the Simpsons promo. That was nuts.

  14. mibuttiznum says:

    “The waiting is over–the New York Rangers are the Stanley Cup Champions! And this one will last a lifetime!”

    Sam Rosen’s one and only highlight…..guy’s gonna be 60 next year though, so I guess he’s on the tail end…
