From the Armchair: Seattle Seahawks, Week 10
But the Seahawks put on a great show for their fans this time, which was just what we needed both as a team and a fan base to build some confidence in this team lost over the past few weeks. I didn't have time to re-watch this game, so I don't remember a whole lot of specifics, other than the fact that regardless of the fact that the Falcons are struggling with injuries and other things, it was great to see the Seahawks play a complete game. The defense was strong (although, being greedy, I was wishing for a L.O.B. interception), the o-line actually looked decent despite the absence of Giacomini, Unger, and Okung. Wilson seemed to make decisions faster and go through his reads quickly and efficiently. The receivers *really* stepped up. And while I do believe Lynch should probably have been given an illegal hands to the face penalty on one play (the captioned meme about Pez was pretty funny though), they were fairly disciplined.
I hope this game was a turning point for this team. One thing that will help, is we get Harvin back this week. And Red Bryant, Okung, Giacomini, and Unger. Their run defense will be stronger again with Red, and this offense is about to get a whole lot better. I'm looking forward to it.
