Mike Holmgren's fourth-and-1 play call against the Vikings became unpopular the minute it did not work. Afterward, the coach said his players did not block the play correctly. I watched this play about 15 times this morning and it's clear the blocking was not great. It's also clear that Seattle had seven blockers against an eight-man front, and that the extra guy in the box, SS Dwight Smith, knifed through to disrupt the play. Mack Strong made a diving effort to block Smith on the play, but did not get there. It looked like this would have been a very difficult block to make. The play appeared doomed. I'll be interested to hear Holmgren's interpretation once he watches the play on video. Note: Seattle succeeded on its only other fourth-and-1 run of the season. Shaun Alexander gained two yards from a one-back, two-tight-end set against the New York Giants. Morris ran from two-back, one-tight against the Vikings.
