Seahawks 36, Cardinals 18- Your NFC West leader postgame reaction thread

Well, we knew this was a big game for the Seahawks, coming off a pair of horrible losses and facing a division opponent on the road. And they clearly exceeded expectations.

Matt Hasselbeck was outstanding, throwing for 333 yards and a touchdown, despite missing a few series with a sore hand. It will be interesting how this affects him next week.

Mike Williams was ridiculous with 11 catches for 145 yards as Seattle rolled up 490 yards of total offense.

With the Rams losing to the Niners, the Seahawks sit alone atop the NFC West standings at 5-4.


1. Who gets the game ball?

2. At least for this season, can we stop with the  Charlie Whitehurst should be starting over Hasselbeck talk?

3. Obviously the Seahawks still won, but is Pete Carroll's decision-making - i.e. not kicking the field goal before halftime - a concern to you?

4. At this point, is there any reason not to think that the Hawks should win the NFC West?

5. Realistically because of the injuries everywhere, have we even seen this team play up to the level it's capable of?
