Seahawks Lose Division Contest with Rams 19-13

The Seahawks dropped a division contest with the Saint Louis Rams today, going 2-2 this year and 0-2 in the NFC West.

This loss is particularly heart breaking for two reasons…

Analysts will now feel justified in their post game assessments inferring that the Seahawks are not for real in spite of beating Dallas and Green Bay.

The aspects of the game that killed us, were things that we excelled at the last two games…

  • Defense on 3rd down
  • Special teams
  • Quarterback ball management

Add some ridiculous penalties by Breno Giacomini, and you have a game lost that we could have easily won.

Look for Pete Carroll to have a renewed focus on the basics this week as the Hawks prepare for the Panthers on the road next week.

  • Hawkman

    RW should sit and learn like most rooks. He is constantly missing open looks and has an issue with his vision. The scripted Pre-season (BS) competition is coming back to bite this team in the arsh! Even the announcers were commenting on his running into sacks and pressure trying to see down field. It is time to start who should have started in the first place Matt Flynn!!!!! We are blowing opportunities to make the playoffs by letting this go on!

      While I agree that Flynn should have been the starter the idea that rookies sit and learn seems old school now. There are 5 rookies starting this year and there were at least 3 rookies starting last year. As for commentator Martz he was a one trick pony. He was great with a HOF qb and rb but a dud without them. He was fired from his last 2 OC jobs. He wasn’t smart enough to adapt his offense to the personnel he had. The tackles seems to have a lot of problems with speed rushers (Arizona and St. Louis). When was the last time did you see a Hawks receiver make an effort catch like the Bears Davis did on MNF? The next such catch you see will be the first this season. Baldwin is turning into Mike Williams II. Rice and Miller are the only 2 who could play for the Packers. All this might be a mute point anyway. Does anyone know if Flynn’s elbow is well enough to play? PC may not have had a choice.
