The defense played gamely, but aside from that opening 90-yard spasm the offense could get NOTHING done. Watching this game was like driving around on a tire with a slowwwwww leak, wasn't it?
For the first time since 2002, I have to admit that the season is effectively over at midseason. Too many injuries, too much complacency (from both coaches and players). It's still important to see improvement in the second half of the season, and hopefully we'll see players busting ass to keep their jobs in the Mora regime next year.
Y'all know my position on packing it in.. I'm against it. But shutting down Hasselbeck for the rest of the season is just the smart thing to do, isn't it? With a healthy Hass in 2009, why can't we make a big turnaround?
It is profoundly depressing to see the Holmgren era ending like this, and I wish I could be there for his final home game v. NYJ. No such luck, though. Hopefully he'll get a hero's send-off from the Qwest faithful.
I'm off to see Zach and Miri Make a Porno. Staring at Elizabeth Banks MIGHT cheer me up.
