Seahawks lose game, Matt Hasselbeck

Charlie Whitehurst

The Seahawks lost 38-15 in Tampa on Sunday, the type of beatdown they have grown used to.  (All nine of Seattle’s losses have come by at least 15 points.)

Seattle also watched Charlie Whitehurst finish the game at quarterback, which has also surprisingly become a trend.  Matt Hasselbeck left Sunday’s game early with an “unusual” hip injury that will prevent him practicing all week, according to coach Pete Carroll.

Whitehurst played the majority of Sunday’s loss and averaged 3.7 yards-per-attempt on 18 throws.  Carroll said that the team will prepare Whitehurst to start next week’s win-and-in NFC West game against the Rams.

Yes, at 6-9,  the Seahawks are very much alive.   (Sadly, the 9-6 Bucs will need to win in New Orleans and get help to make the playoffs.)

    Hasselbeck somehow injured himself with no one around him, but not to worry….

    Pete Carroll will rah rah his hip to health once again!

    Rams will the NFC West easily next week.

    “Sadly ” the Bucs are a much better team than their 9-6 record indicates. If the NFL plays in 2011 , a healthy Buc team will be hard to stop. GO BUCS!

    Thats it. The entire NFC West should be in the semi pro league. The seahawks are the laughing stock of the NFL. At this point whoever the number 5 seed is has an awesome playoff schedule. They play their starters against the seahawks for a first half scrimage and then shut it down and get ready for a team the following week with an extra scrimmage under their belt.

    Bucs are lucky to be 9-6 but they are getting better. The NFC WEST is just an embarrassment

    Especially when Win #9 was taken away last week by the NFL’s Ref’s. “Sorry” just doesn’t help!

    Carroll is quite pumped and jacked that his team has a shot at the playoffs this year. Then he’ll be pumped and jacked about the draft after they fail to make it to the post season.

    Hawks are abysmal. Should lose another game by 25 points next week, Start Bradford and Jackson on your fantasy team. D can’t stop too many people when O keeps going 3 and out. Time to dump Bates and Bradley

    Reseeding the playoffs is a must for the nfl. Seahawks nor the Rams deserve to make the playoffs

    The Rams have the capability to crush Seattle next week. If they do, they prove superiority over the division and make it into the playoffs with an 8-8 record. Hell, even if they win by a point, same results.

    Point is, that’d be no worse off than what San Diego did a few years ago…I don’t remember the non-stop bashing of the AFC West back then.

    So if the Rams beat Seattle, would everyone then drop the tired-a$$ NFC West sucks sound-off fest?

    THE RAMS ARE A HUGE SUCCESS THIS SEASON based on the past few years no matter what happens on Sunday. Bradford will be a legend in this league and lead the Rams to much success. People should probably be sounding off about that instead of just repeatedly labeling the entire division as horrible.

    I’m guessing all of the folks advocating for reseeding the playoffs have memories reaching back only as far as their last hit on the bong. All 4 NFC West teams are abysmal – this year – but that division has sent 3 teams to the Super Bowl since 2000 (St. Louis, Arizona and Seattle). Get over it.

    Yea and all 3 lost. Doesn’t change the fact that a team with a losing record might get to host a playoff game. While teams with winning records will be sitting at home.

    The NFC West should have a team in the playoffs, but not at home!!!

    “Point is, that’d be no worse off than what San Diego did a few years ago…I don’t remember the non-stop bashing of the AFC West back then. ”

    I seem to remember a whole lot of complaining about New England being 11-5 and not making the playoffs. As far as “labeling the entire division as horrible” it was. Sorry. Having said that, the winner of your division has earned the right to make the playoffs. Period.

    Everyone without a creative bone in their body please come bang the “NFC West sucks” gong for a while. zzzzz.

    Get used to it – the Rams are on the rise and will dominate this division for years to come. And will win a lot more than 8 games per season.

  16. bartpkelly says: Dec 27, 2010 6:10 AM

    You play 6 games against your division. You have intense rivalries with them. You need to have something as a reward for winning it. A home playoff game is just that and rightly so.
    Imagine if the NFC West was ultra competitive and they all went 9-7 because they kept beating each other up and injuring the other teams starting QBs. Then you have a 10-6 wild card record from a team with a vastly easier schedule hosting a division winner. I don’t like it. Let winning your division mean more than a playoff birth. Let it reward the team, fans and city with a home game.

    The Rams defense is playoff-worthy. The Rams offense has been taking baby steps all season. If Seattle wins this game, the earth will likely explode and we should play all future football games on Mars. But the Rams should win and that’s ok, so let us not panic…yet.

  18. blackcatnfl says: Dec 27, 2010 6:54 AM

    I believe there is a stat about the Seahawks having the largest margin of loss per loss in NFL history?

    Ok Buc Fans get off your high horse, who have you beaten that is playoff bound?? NO ONE!!!
    Atleast the hawks beat the bears on the road.

    We beat the rams, and I’m fairly certain the rams will destroy the seahawks next week. Anyone with half a brain will take STL for that one. Good luck with Whitehurst, he looks like a real winner.
