Sure it was just one game, but it was EXACTLY the kind of win a wounded but talented Seattle team needed. Despite still being shorthanded due to injuries, a formidable arsenal of offensive and defensive weapons was displayed today by the boys in blue. We have an elite, all-pro quality quarterback who now has a El Guapo-level plethora of dangerous receivers. We have a defense that can be absolutely suffocating (at least at Qwest Field), stocked with young talent that will keep this team competitive for years to come.
I want to talk a little more about Hasselbeck. The man is the soul of this team, and he proved that again today. Playing in pain, he made the right decisions under pressure and delivered a bushel of accurate passes. His performance was among the best of his Ring of Honor-bound Seattle career, and it's safe to say we'll see a lot more of these kind of exploits as long as we can keep #8 healthy.
So we dominated a talented but underachieving Jacksonville squad, and reminded the league they best not talk trash about Qwest Field and the Twelve Army that patrols its grounds... Next week is Arizona. They know what to expect from a trip to Qwest, but that doesn't mean they can handle what is coming their way.
What do you think, sirs?
