Good stuff

A couple of good things happened on Sunday also. Jon Ryan had a fabulous game, changing Seattle’s field position multiple times. And kudos goes to the kick coverage team, especially the gunners…okay lets just say the name…Ricardo Lockette the rocket. How can you afford to let this guy go after his kick coverage and his ability to play over the top of defenders as a wide-receiver?

Seattle also was able to prove that they can hold the ball for more than 18 minutes; they held the ball for 38 minutes. And a special shout out to the person with the best QB rating on the field…Jermaine Kearse. And even though Seattle was penalized seven times, the total yards penalized was just about the same as Denver, so I consider that a positive.

After all was said and done Seattle put together a good enough defensive effort against a team that is built to put point on the board. Wilson and company were able to string enough plays together to get points on the board against a defense that was upgraded by John Elway with enough money to buy a small country. Oh, and thank goodness destiny finally decided that enough was enough and came up heads on the coin toss. Go Hawks!
