Yays and Nays for the Seattle Starting O in 2 1/2 quarters of play.
Hasselbeck had another VERY solid outing =
17-of-23 passes for 198 yards and two touchdowns. He even managed to scrape together 38 net yds rushing. Hell if Robinson hadn't dropped 3 early passes (more on that to come) he'd have been 20-23 with at least 220 yds.
Both Jackson and Robinson were over 60+ yds and a TD a piece, while Engram thieved 5 catches for 60 yards of his own.
Womack is going to have a rough time of it at LT against small/speedy DE's. Within the last 2 games he's given up 3 sacks. 2 to R-Kal Truluk (yeah...WHO?!) and 1 to Dwight Freeney last weekend at Indy. In all actuality, Womack has done WORSE as Freeney single-handedly forced Holmgren to remove Hasselbeck early.
Please Mr. Jones ..sign the damn contract.
So Robinson seems to be in this mire where for the first quarter he looks like a damn rookie hell bent on destroying offensive drives by dropping passes. Tonight he dropped 2 out routes and a crossing route.
But somewhere in the middle of the 2nd qtr, he's looking like the top 10 WR ready to bust out of the stadium. Something that turns him into Superman is when Hasselbeck (like he did all game tonight) reads the blitz and then makes the correct audible for a slant play. Anyone who's seen Seattle knows this is quickly becoming their flavor and style. This is all geared around getting the ball to Krob and letting him create yards after the catch.
If he can just get through the 1st qtr.
Only 3 leagues this year. No sense in rooting for everyone in the NFL.
