Morning links: Reaction to Hawks 33-17 loss

Dave Boling of The News Tribune writes about the Seattle Seahawks struggles in the kicking game on Sunday at San Francisco. Boling jokes that maybe Seattle will consider cutting the salaries of the team’s special teams players this week, because San Francisco did the same thing to Ted Ginn last week.

More Boling: When evaluating the Seattle’s performance on offense, he has one overriding feeling for Tarvaris Jackson – sympathy.

And although the offense struggled, the defense played well on Sunday. Red Bryant and the other members of the defense understand they need to take a lead role with a young offense.

Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times writes that the Seahawks’ offense was only half bad, focusing on the adjustments they made in the second half.
