Right tackle Sean Locklear is out for the remainder of the preseason at least with a sprained left knee. Mike Holmgren said he will get an MRI today. Also, Rob Sims had to get x-rays on his right hand after getting it mashed up. It was stiff and swollen in the postgame locker room.
Holmgren was not exactly pleased with Charlie Frye's performance. When asked to assess it, he said he will reserve judgment until reviewing the film -- which is to say, I don't want to comment on what I'm really thinking right now. He said the 3 INTs were bad. He said his decision-making on the interception return for a TD was bad. Having said that, the guy played the entire time and won an NFL game. As for Frye, he said the INT for a touchdown kind of woke him up and made him start focusing and playing. He said he was very winded because the game was so hot.
Holmgren remains non-committal on Justin Forsett, despite his 256 combined yards. When I asked him if there was any way he could leave him off the team if he kept playing like this, he said it is way too early to make any comments about the roster at this point. There are 2 weeks to go and a lot of stuff can happen. He keeps bringing up his size, or lack thereof, when discussing him.
Never miss a local story.
Brandon Coutu said he never has attempted five FGs in a game before.
Holmgren said even though the special teams are using different combinations trying to find something that fits, there were way too many special teams mistakes tonight. He obviously was not happy with the punt protection; two blocked punts is not going to get it. The snaps looked good, though Boling said he thought they lacked some zip. Everything seemed to take too long on the blocks.
Kevin Hobbs said right before his interceptions, the defenders in the huddle said it was time for them to make a play to turn the game. He did. He said he got a good break on the ball rather than the ball being thrown too far inside.
Eric Williams covered the rest of the locker room and will provide some of the stuff from conversations he had.
