I'll give a few observations and then post quotes and notes and my game story, etc.
One funny scene from the locker room: Nate Burleson finished his postgame interview with reporters, everybody was clearing out and I was writing a note in my notebook. Behind me, Burleson says, "I see you Will Heller. What are you doing, practicing to go to the Pro Bowl?" Not surprisingly, Heller didn't have much to say. But he got congrats from his teammates still remaining. He has three TD catches this season.
Hasselbeck said the shotgun has been installed but it is up to him when to call it. Some plays, he said, lend themselves better to it than others. Matt said he is trying to use it without abusing it.
Never miss a local story.
Patrick Kerney said he switched sides with Darryl Tapp because of his oblique injury. The way he would have to turn his body and the blocks he would receive would be more painful from the left side, so he switched to the right. I thought he was in the three-point stance more than normal, but he said that was because of the injury.
I asked Rob Sims if it is different blocking for Mo Morris than for Shaun Alexander. He said it didn't matter, the blocking is always the same, it is the running that is different. Although I guess the opponent helps out, certainly.
Mo Morris is always difficult to get to say anything, so he was not overly gregarious. He said the one thing that bothered him more than anything was the fumble, which he said happened because he got too relaxed with the ball. Other than that, he said he felt he had a pretty good night.
Hasselbeck said he likes throwing that much early because it allows him to get into a rhythm. But, as he said, this was one game, and Holmgren may change his approach next week.
The only injuries was a bruised knee by CJ Wallace and Jordan Babineaux got poked in the eye.
