Seahawks versus Rams -- What to watch for

1. Jerramy Stevens returns at Tight End this week. His presence should (hopefully) have a bigger impact on the nonexistant running game, and help out our struggling offensive line.

2. Rams QB Marc Bulger hasn't thrown an interception all year, but it's not for lack of trying -- last week, I watched at least two surefire interceptions get dropped. The Seahawks' cornerbacks need this to be a statement game: they need to shut down Holt and Bruce and generate some picks.

3. Will the 2005 Matt Hasselbeck please show up?

4. Bobby Engram is out with a mysterious thyroid condition, so this may be the week we see Deion Brach show why he was worth a first round pick. But don't be surprised if 4th wideout D.J. Hackett makes a few huge, game-turning plays for us: Hackett has great speed and even better hands, and unlike the rest of the Hawks WRs, he's over six feet tall.

Another big game on the road. And I hate the Rams. GO HAWKS!

Sadly, I didn't get to watch the game. Seems like a cliffhanger. At least we won a game on the road (never an easy task in the NFL) but it sure looks like our days of dominance are behind us.

Hmm, we're sitting at 4-1, without our starting RB (the NFL MVP last season) and our starting TE, and our days of dominance are behind us? Seems a bit early for that verdict. We played like garbage in the first half, and then played fantastic football in the second half, in all phases of the game. If Mo Morris doesn't cough up that stupid fumble, there would have been no cliff hanger ending. But I'm glad it happened -- that was a gut-check game, much like the Giants game was last year, and we won.

More detailed analysis to come by way of blog post soon.
