Of course I dont know half the pertinant facts that Holmgren knows, but from what I understand of the situation, I simply cant see where the benefit would be to start SA. SEA has a great opportunity to give their future RB a real start and see how he does without offending their current starter becuase he has a minor injury.
Its a win win situation for everyone for SA to sit. SA gets more time to heal, SEA gets a good look at Morris in real action.
I just cant imagine them playing SA - there is no reason to.
Here's the thing though Corn...Screw giving Maurcie Morris a start. Seattle's trying to win now. Why on Earth would they sabotage themselves by sitting Alexander just to feed Maurice some game time? They need to put themselves in a position to have homefield advantage. If they can win on the road against a conference opponent, then that's one step closer.
The Seattle window to win is now. They're taking nothing for granted...if SA can go..he'll play. I guarentee it.
My guess, Holmgren will call SA a gametime decision and you'll see him start.
the reasoning then is that even an injured or slightly injured SA is better than Morris? I thought Holmgren was pretty high on Morris. Aww - what is the feeling in SEA? Do people think Morris is nearly as good as SA or dont they?
