    I wonder why I haven't seen any threads about that. Seems like three of their best DB's are out against Dallas Saturday. That can only be good! :eek::

    we can't pass protect well enough to take advantage.

    ...which means that romo will be pressured, fumble 3 times, throw hurriedly for 2 INTs.

    As long as we can outscore Seattle, we'll be fine. Unfortunately, I think scoring 50 might be improbable.

    So are you saying they will sign some guy off the street and he will have an all-pro game?

    I hope the Cowboys go with some 3 and 4 WR sets this week to at least try to take advantage of some mismatches. And for gosh sake, PLEASE put TO in the slot sometimes to try to catch some street FA corner trying to cover him.

    If they want... sure.

    Falcons FB is he prime example... 1st TD of his life and get got 3 or whatever.

    I am more concerned about our players rather than theirs at the moment to be honest tho.

    Starters or not... we need our guys to perform.

    Seattles secondary is beat up, however their front 7 is still very good.

    They have three legitimate pass rushers. they have linebackers that can run. They have good interior defensive tackles.

    If they come after us we will have opportunities to make plays down the field, if we cant block it though it wont matter.

    I am worried more about our ability to block their front 7 than I am our ability to stop hassleback. Think about that for a second!

    While I'm also in the 'prove to me you can play defense' camp, I would like to see some Seattle threads. They aren't setting things on fire either.

    This is a game we can win with a little shoring up.

    Mike Kahn Mailbag
    Bring on the Playoffs
    1/2/2007

    By Mike Kahn - Seahawks Insider

    Enough of this 2006 NFL regular season for the Seattle Seahawks. Now it's onto the playoffs, courtesy of a third consecutive NFC West title.

    Virtually every starter on offense went to the sidelines with an injury, often crippling the offensive line – which started eight different combinations during the season and potentially a ninth coming into this Saturday's Wild Card game at 5 p.m., when they play host to the Dallas Cowboys at Qwest Field.

    And even Sunday’s welcome 23-7 victory Sunday at Tampa Bay gave the Seahawks (9-7) reason to pause, losing cornerbacks Kelly Herndon to a broken ankle and Jimmy Williams to a knee sprain – just one week after starting corner Marcus Trufant went down with a high ankle sprain. That leaves only rookie Kelly Jennings and safety/cornerback Jordan Babineaux as healthy corners.

    Add wide receiver D.J. Hackett’s strained groin to the list that already had Darrell Jackson out for three weeks with a hyper-extended toe, and there could be decisions to make with regard to roster spots for wide receivers as well as defensive backs.

    Nonetheless, significant progress has been made by the Seahawks the past couple of weeks in performance. In their loss to high-powered San Diego last week, they had control of the game until a 37-yard touchdown pass in the final 30 seconds caused a heart-breaking defeat. But that performance of controlling the ball on the ground carried over to the Tampa game and will be crucial on Saturday.

    It’s quite apparent that both Shaun Alexander (foot) and Matt Hasselbeck (knee) have gotten healthier and more confident the past couple of weeks. And that success carries over to the defense, which held record-breaking LaDainian Tomlinson without a touchdown for San Diego, and Tampa managed to cross the goal line just once on Sunday.

    In other words, progress is being made, and with the Cowboys coming to town, this is the opportunity for the Hawks to build on what they’ve accomplished the past two weeks and add to the momentum in defense of their first NFC title in club history.

    So with that wrap on the 9-7 regular season, let’s go to the e-mails to see how you, the fans, feel about what’s been happening with the Hawks.

    also the seattle paper is reporting this a pete hunter signing



    Seahawks sign two to help beleaguered secondary
    By José Miguel Romero

    Seattle Times staff reporter


    KIRKLAND *— The Seahawks signed safety John Howell and cornerback Pete Hunter today, placing cornerbacks Kelly Herndon and Jimmy Williams on injured reserve.

    Howell, a Seahawk in 2005, and Hunter, a former Dallas Cowboy, replace Herndon and Williams on the 53-man active roster.

    Howell played in 10 games last season before going on injured reserve near the end of the regular season. He was mainly a special-teams contributor.

    Hunter was the Cowboys' fifth-round draft pick in 2002 and played three seasons with Dallas before being traded to the New York Jets. He played in four games for the Cleveland Browns last season and has five starts in 34 career games, with three interceptions and 17 special-teams tackles.

    Howell and Hunter figure to contribute immediately on special teams, with Hunter perhaps to be used as an extra defensive back in passing situations. Neither player was on a team this season.

    If we can't take advantage of the Seahawks ailing secondary, then I'm joining the Get Rid of Parcells bandwagon.

    There is absolutely no reason a seasoned coach and staff shouldn't be able to exploit Seattle's secondary like other teams exploit ours.

    I dont agree about getting rid of parcells. I do agree though that they should find a way to make plays on their secondary.

    I think max protecting and only sending owens, glenn and witten late into routes would help.

    If we can get a lead and force seattle to take chances we could really make some stuff happen I think, seattle will do everything they can to protect their corners this week. I think that means all out attacking with their front 7 and making the ball come out quick.

    AMEN!

    Move TO around, putting him in the slot some to give us an advantage.

    Glenn or Witten, between the 2, need to have a big game against a banged up Seahag secondary.

    Move Ware around and don't force him to go against an ALL PRO LT all game long.

    Move TNew around more and don't always move him to the slot in the nic defense.
