Morning links: Reaction to Hawks 6-3 loss

Good morning. I’m on my way back to Seattle. We’ll hold our Monday Morning QB live chat at 1 p.m., so stop by and join in the conversation.

Meanwhile, check out what is being said about the Seattle Seahawks 6-3 loss to Cleveland on Sunday.

My game story deals with Seattle’s struggles offensively, including quarterback Charlie Whitehurst’s poor performance, perhaps answering questions about Seattle’s starting quarterback situation.

Injuries and poor officiating had an impact on the way the game turned out for the Seahawks.

Defensive end Red Bryant had a big day, blocking two field goals. But he also had a personal foul penalty late in the game that cost Seattle one more chance to score late in the game. Bryant took responsibility for his actions.

John McGrath of The News Tribune debates which is more hopeless, Nick Holt’s Washington defense or Darrell Bevell’s Seattle offense.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer gives us the Browns’ perspective on the incident between Bryant and Cleveland tight end Alex Smith.

Steve Kelly of the Seattle Times writes that Whitehurst is not the answer for Seattle at quarterback, and Tarvaris Jackson isn’t the quarterback of the future either.

Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times reviews the game here.

Clare Farnsworth of provides some details from the game here.
