Good morning. We’ll talk about the game and other Seahawks-related stuff this morning at 11 a.m. during Monday Morning Qb. So come and commiserate Seattle’s poor effort in the final quarter against Washington.
For now, check out what’s out there for reaction on Seattle’s 23-17 loss to Washington on Sunday.
Here’s my game story, which focuses on the third and 19 play from midfield where Anthony Armstrong beat Brandon Browner for a 50-yard touchdown, his first catch since Oct. 23.
Dave Boling of The News Tribune writes that it’s time for Seattle head coach Pete Carroll to crack on repeat offenders regarding penalties. Couldn’t agree more.
Seattle receiver Mike Williams has become an afterthought in Seattle’s offense. Williams was held without a catch for a third game this season.
John McGrath of The News Tribune writes that there was plenty of blame to go around as Seattle fell apart in the fourth quarter.
Larry LaRue of The News Tribune focuses on the Seattle defense’s struggles in stopping journeyman Rex Grossman.
Seattle led by as many as 10 points in the second half, but let one slip away in a 23-17 loss to Washington.
Rex Grossman threw for 306 yards and two touchdowns. The dagger was a 50-yard strike to Anthony Armstrong on 3rd and 19 from the 50-yard line midway through the fourth quarter.
The Seahawks finished with 124 rushing yards, but penalties and poor execution on offense led Seattle’s demise.
The Seahawks had five drops on the day.
I don’t have much more to add, other than it was just an overall …
Dave Boling and Eric Williams will be your hosts. We’ll get started at 12:45 p.m.
Defensive tackle Alan Branch went through workouts this morning, but ultimately did not pass the tests set forth by Seattle’s training staff and is inactive today with an ankle issue.
So that means Clinton McDonald will get his first start at defensive tackle.
There were no other surprises for Seattle today.
For Washington, Santana Moss returns from a hand injury and will start, but former Seattle players offensive lineman Tyler Polumbus and defensive lineman Kentwan Balmer will be inactive for today’s game.
Here’s the full list.
Good morning. The weather calls for breezy conditions with rain and temperatures in the 40s this afternoon at CenturyLink Field, so dress appropriately if you’re headed out to the game today.
Here’s five keys for the Seattle Seahawks as they take on Washington in the beginning of a three-game stretch at home.
I moved Seattle up from 24 to 19 in this week’s The News Tribune NFL power rankings.
Here’s a quick spin around other national web sites to see where they have Seattle.
Pete Prisco of CBS Sports puts Seattle at No. 20 overall.
Don Banks of Sports Illustrated ranks the Seahawks at No. 19 overall.
Brian Billick of Fox Sports puts Seattle at No. 22.
With defensive tackle Alan Branch a game-time decision heading into Sunday’s game against Washington, you likely will see a lot more of Clinton McDonald lined up next to Brandon Mebane.
Seattle received the University of Memphis product in a trade with Cincinnati for Kelly Jennings just before the season started.
At 6-foot-2, 300 pounds, McDonald offers Seattle versatility because he’s stout enough to back up Mebane at nose tackle and quick enough to fill-in for Branch as the pass-rushing defensive tackle.
McDonald said he’s looks forward to a chance for more playing time, and is just trying to continue the high demands set by his teammates.
“Those guys have been great examples and have set the standard for me to come in and make plays,” McDonald said. “To watch what they do and the kind of effect that they have on the game, coming in I feel like I can make somewhat of an impact following their lead.”
