I caught a nasty little bug mid-day Friday that has kept me in bed since then. Here's a thumbnail preview, in case I'm not able to crank out the long version:
Watching the Seahawks last week was like watching a Packers team circa 1996. The plays were the same. Only the names have changed. The one major difference is that Holmgren never had a Shaun Alexander in Green Bay. He gets most of his yards running left, behind LT Walter Jones and LG Steve Hutchinson. Demarcus Ware better be ready. Holding his perimeter will be key to containing Alexander and winning the game.
You get the picture. The score didn't indicate it, but Payton's game plan and play calls were every bit as aggressive as they were against the Eagles. But when your guys play like The Three Stooges you look stupid too. I think the offense will keep playing high-pressure, down-the-field football, even with Flozell Adams out.
The offense has been on-again, off-again all year. This is the on week.
