Smells like a litter box down here

So here we are, in the NFC West's dank, smelly unfurnished basement, rooming with our old pals Josh Brown and STL. Today's loss falls squarely on the defense.. You can't really fault a 3rd string QB for fucking up a frantic comeback effort the way Frye did.

I'm not giving up until mathematical elimination day, but one starts to wonder if this team simply isn't very good. I hope this notion is dispelled next week. I can deal with rooting for a team that tries hard and fails... Right now, it looks like these guys have just stopped giving a goat's fucking ass about winning games.

This goddamn team better stop being all emo about this season and start punching mother fuckers in the neck.

Fuck! Come on, you assholes! Get pisssssed!

Realistically, going into this game, you had to figure that this was one of those games where the defense was going to have to limit the Packers to around 13 points or less. Right now, that doesn't look like something that this defense is capable of, sadly. I remember a conversation I had a year ago with a friend of mine, and I was wondering what the Seahawks' identity was. We all knew what that identity was in 2005; a dominant, efficient offense with a solid bend-but-don't-break defense. By last year, the offense wasn't quite so dominant, and the defense, while it showed signs of improving, didn't seem to be the type that could take over games.

Now, I have to be honest, like everyone else I went into this season thinking that we'd be improved on both sides of the ball. We were returning ten starters on defense, and the eleventh player, Lawrence Jackson, looked like an upgrade. The running game was going to be improved with the additions of Wahle and Julius Jones. I'm still not sure what to make of this season. The schedule has been brutal lately, but we were struggling before this. The secondary seems to have regressed, and we don't seem to be getting a pass rush. Obviously all of the injuries at WR have taken a toll too. I'm not ready to give up on the season, but I do think we're going to be returning some significant talent next year. Adding a stud draft pick or two next April might put us back in a position to contend.

I think the blame falls on Holmgren actually, showed no faith whatsoever in Frye with the play calling and waited till the team was down by 3 scores(where the packers would know was a must throw situation) before he finally had to pass. The offensive drives were way too short because of the predictable play calling. I thought the defense did pretty good, with holding the packers to 10 points in the first half and not allowing a 20 yard + play till like half way into the third quarter, they were just out there for way too long

Heads have to start to roll if this team hope to turn around this season. I'm talking about starters getting benched and staff getting fired, get the message across that Ruskell means buisness and won't tolerate losing.

That said I would rather see us have a losing but still respectable season than see us lose in the WC round and pick 20th overall. A top 15 pick will be welcome after picking around 25 for 5 or 6 years.
