Seahawks’ Robert Gallery out at least four weeks with groin injury

Robert Gallery AP

Things are going from bad to worse for the Seattle Seahawks.

Robert Gallery, the guard the Seahawks signed as a free agent from the Raiders this offseason, will have surgery to repair a groin injury that he aggravated in Sunday’s loss to the Steelers. He’s expected to miss at least four weeks.

With Gallery out, Paul McQuistan will start at left guard. That means the Seahawks will have their third different offensive line combination of the season in their third game of the season.

The loss of Gallery is just one more thing going wrong in a season when everything has gone wrong. The Seahawks are 0-2 and have been outscored 57-17. Only the Kansas City Chiefs have been outscored by more this year.

    What the over-under on “It’s James Harrison’s fault”?

  5. doe22us says: Sep 19, 2011 8:06 PM

    The team is really really bad

    Gallery lives on the IR list. that’s why Al wouldn’d pay him the money he wanted. now Miller is stuck on a dead-end team

  7. trbowman says: Sep 19, 2011 8:08 PM

    Paul and brother Pat McQuistan are legends.

    A month ago, Seahawks fans were like “lol Raiders we got two of your best players”. How’s that working out for ya?

  9. snoqualmieterry says: Sep 19, 2011 8:11 PM

    We are shooting for 0- 16. I know every player is working hard, but we have made too many changes at key positions and way too young at O line.

    Between Robert Gallery and Zach miller.. Ol Tom Cable really stuck it to the raiders.. Al Davis always gets the last laugh!! (in a sinister Monty Burns voice)

    I think I just got it . . .

    The running gag about every team that is already going down in flames is that it’s all part of a strategy to draft Andrew Luck.

    But what if Pete Carroll a) Really does think Luck can become a “franchise quarterback,” and b) thinks he can use Luck to turn the Seahawks around.

    He knows already last season that Hasselbeck has a lot more past than future, so he makes a reach to get a stopgap QB in Whitehurst. This reinforces the prevailing opinion around the League that Carroll doesn’t really know what he’s doing in the NFL, and provides a built-in excuse for the team doing poorly in 2011 (he’s thinking long-term, here).

    The problem for Carroll is that Whitehurst proves that he might be a decent QB after all — not a great QB, but a good enough one to lead the team to a 7-9 record. Well, that’s not going to get them the #1 Pick for 2012, so he’s got to do something in the offseason. So he signs Tavaris Jackson, who’s mobile enough not to get killed behind the Seattle’s Offensive Turnstile (sorry, Offensive Line, but not good enough to win many games.

    Carroll can tank the season without looking like he’s trying to tank the season, he lulls other teams’ personnel guys into thinking he’s incompetent, and he gets to steal Jim Harbaugh’s college QB.

    It’s diabolically brilliant!

    First Rice and now Gallery.

    I call no more free agent signings of guys whose last name can be found in the dictionary!

  13. nomesayin says: Sep 19, 2011 8:32 PM

    What??! Roberta Girlery is injured? NO! That never happens!

  14. joetoronto says: Sep 19, 2011 8:37 PM

    Gallery is injured more than he plays, get used to it.

  15. 2sloweggroll says: Sep 19, 2011 9:08 PM

    I am a rare Raider fan who liked Gallery, and I was happy to see his career salvaged by Cable at Guard. But he has broken down recently and I thought they were smart to let him walk.

    By the way, the Raiders Oline has only allowed 1 sack and are paving the way for a early dominant run game.

  16. raiderlyfe510 says: Sep 19, 2011 9:08 PM

    Wont matter if you all draft Andrew Luck…If Tom Cable is in charge of protecting him he’s gonna be running for his life.

    Tom Cable is not a professional grade coach. I have seen some of the worst football imaginable when he tried to be a head coach in this league. I mean there was one game when the Falcons held the Raiders to 95 yards of total offense with that buffoon calling the plays.

  17. bloggingpoodlewalker says: Sep 19, 2011 9:40 PM

    Actually Gallery not being able to play can only help the Seahags.

  18. cliffordc05 says: Sep 19, 2011 9:51 PM

    Jackson and Whitehurst are both stopgap qbs and Seattle obviously either did not like the qbs available in this last draft or felt they had to rebuild the offensive line first. Carroll has a long term contract and can think long term (unlike the guy in KC). I am not happy with this year’s team, but have hope that it will vastly improved after the next dratt. Luck is not the only good quarterback in this draft.

    There was no reason to re-sign Hasselbeck because he would already be injured by now. Very few qbs in the league are quick enough to survive the learning curve this line will take this year. ( It would be nice if he could make up his mind and throw the ball.)

  19. kegpack says: Sep 19, 2011 9:59 PM

    He needs to spend more time in the gym and less time at the tattoo parlor…

  20. carson9 says: Sep 19, 2011 10:21 PM

    He totally lucked out. Who actually wants to play for this train wreck?

  21. paulbrownsrevenge says: Sep 19, 2011 10:45 PM

    The Searats will hold the number one pick overall, Peter the cheater will pick Matt Barkley over Luck. Harbaugh will trade up and get Luck. Harbaugh will always own Carroll.

    I hate seeing all these injuries but at least no one is going to be able to accuse the Seahawks of tanking anything. IR is going to do it for us. I didn’t have very high expectations for this season to begin with as this is an extremely young (perhaps the youngest in the league) rebuilding team. Paul McQuistan did well in the preseason I guess now we get to see what he’s got. I look at this season as the evaluation period we should have had in the off season. Not every free-agent is going to pan out anymore than every rookie drafted or not drafted will. We have picked up some promising players though and I look forward to seeing where it goes from here.

  23. birdsnooper2 says: Sep 19, 2011 10:53 PM

    OK, but who’s gonna manage the Denny’s in Tukwila with McQuistan playing guard for the Seahawks?

  24. thephantomstranger says: Sep 19, 2011 11:17 PM

    Does anyone else think of Sam Malone’s rap whenever they hear the term “groin injury”?

  25. txxxchief says: Sep 19, 2011 11:17 PM

    I wish we were playing the blue man group this week.

  26. pacificnw7722 says: Sep 19, 2011 11:21 PM

    WTF Carroll, maybe he needs to turn the entire team over again in the off season…..this team is a complete and incompetent friggin’ joke. Very sad indeed.

  27. fthrvic says: Sep 19, 2011 11:31 PM

    @NoHomeTeam, your theory is plausible, but I believe Carroll is simply showing once more that he’s in way over his head in the NFL.

    I’ve had Seahawks fans tell me to my face they’d gladly go winless for a shot at Luck though, wow….just wow.

  28. nflfan877 says: Sep 20, 2011 12:43 AM

    Hard to believe Hasselbeck actually got this team to even 7-9 last year…. it was average with him, but absolutely horrific without him.

  29. bnwpnw says: Sep 20, 2011 1:24 AM

    Last Hawks season showed promise. This season is turning into quite the shibacle.

    Actually I think it is obvious Carroll is trying to tank the season for a shot at one of the QBs next year; preferably Luck.

    As a Raider fan I don’t miss Roberta Gallery, I’m happier having a Wisniewski playing the left guard spot

  32. lunarpie says: Sep 20, 2011 7:43 AM

    mrcosio,
    AMEN! Wisniewski is way better than Gallery and oh yeh, HE’S A ROOKIE!!!

    Goodbye Robert and good luck!

  33. nomoreseasontix says: Sep 20, 2011 8:40 AM

    He misses games every year. Did anyone really think he wouldn’t?

    —————————————————-

    Did you even watch the Seahawk games last season? Hasselbeck played terribly in the regular season. The team was average in spite of him. He struggled with the new offense week in and week out…when he was actually on the field. It was not until the playoffs that he actually stepped up and played like we knew he was capable of playing. I have no hard feelings against Matt he was and is the best we have ever had in Seattle, but I’m glad he has moved on so we could move on. It was not his fault this team fell apart anymore than it was Carroll’s. The old front office was horrible when it came to making draft choices. They left us without any successor for Walter Jones and many many other positions for that matter. That is not Matt’s fault. I wish him the best of luck and who knows…maybe if the Titans can get the right pieces I might be able to root for him in another SB before he rides off into the sunset of retirement.
