Head coach Jim Mora, who was in a fairly foul mood, basically called out Olindo Mare for missing those two kicks.

“There’s no excuses for those. If you’re a kicker in the National Football League you should make those kicks – bottom line. End of story. Period. No excuses. No wind, doesn’t matter. You’ve gotta makes those kicks.

Friday practice report: Hasselbeck likely out for Chicago

Seahawks head coach Jim Mora told reporters on Friday that quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is “extremely unlikely” to play on Sunday. Hasselbeck suffered a fractured rib against San Francisco on Sunday and has not practiced all week.

Seneca Wallace will get the start at quarterback if Hasselbeck does not play.

Mora also said that offensive tackle Walter Jones will be a game-time decision. Jones was a limited participant in practice on Friday, and has been sharing time at left tackle with Brandon Frye.
