For those of you who are concerned, both injuries appear to be minor. Hill has a groin strain and Tatupu has a mild hamstring strain.

“We believe that it’s very minor and we hope that we caught it,” head coach Jim Mora said of Hill’s injury.

As for Tatupu’s injury, Mora said, “It doesn’t appear to be anything serious. We were playing it safe at that point, especially with Lofa.”

    Glad they were just taking it easy with Lofa. His body language wasn’t looking like he was really hurt badly.

    I was wincing though when Hass went back out there ,and throwing, with 8:00 or so to go in the 4th, especially with the game getting so chippy (I would love to see the Curry/Jackson tiffs turn this rivalry heated). On one hand, I like the anti-Holmgrenness of keeping our foot on the throat of an opponent late in the game with a lead. However, with a 28 point lead and eight minutes left with a QB who’s missed time the last two years, well, it wouldn’t be a bad time for Hass to take a seat. And double for the last posession.

  2. Thank god bring on the 49ers. For 1st place

    No kidding, the NFC West blog is full of ecstatic 49ers fans with delusions of grandeur. “The Seahawks beating the Rams is NOT the same thing as the 9ers beating the defending NFC Champs on their own field. The NFC West race will be defined next week.” is the main tenor of their comments.

    I agree. Sort of… Just two thoughts to add to that…

    1) The ‘Hawks did what good teams do to bad teams…whupped ‘em.
    2) The NFC West is ours. Last year was an aberration, not a trend.

    I’m already ready for next week already!

    With the kind of depth we have at LB, it would only make sense that Hill or Lofa would get pulled if they felt the slightest tweak. They weren’t really needed, it’s a long season, and our backups got some good non-garbage time experience…who knows, perhaps by the end of the season, we’ll be able to rotate LB’s too…I think about the concept of a fresh front 7 in the fourth quarter and just drool:) In baseball, they talk about an excellent bullpen making a game 7 innings long for opponents…with that kind of set up, we could make the game 3 quarters long for other offenses…I’m liking that idea…a lot:)

    9ers fans should be happy, they did something that the Hawks have never done, which is win at the U. Of Phoenix stadium.

    Yes, they won ugly, but a win nonetheless. Now the Hawks can pick apart that tape and know what to expect from the 9ers. Certainly they are a tough team to move the ball against, with playmakers on defense. But the Hawks have a solid array of weapons to use on offense. More than the Cardinals, actually. The Cards have two great receivers. The Hawks have two good receivers, and a super tight end. I’m sure that the Hawks will have a good game plan to use in SF. Should be a nice battle.
