I gotta agree with you. SA is an absolute workhorse, and I really don't see the justification for everyone saying he is not a good RB. I hear that a lot (for some reason though, only in the cafe), and I've watched games just to see if I was missing something...is there something so great about the O-line or play calls that make SA look better than he is? Nothing I've seen. Alexander is big, strong, and a hell of a lot faster than he should be for his size (he has roughly the same 40 time as MoMo...the kick returner), and durable as hell. If SA says he can go, I think Holmgren would be nuts to not start him. MoMo could be the future, but as some previous posts have mentioned, Seattle can't worry about the future right now. And as good as he might be, there is no freaking way he is as good as SA right now. As a possible Super Bowl contender (and with home field advantage such a big issue with them) they have to bring it every day. And Seahawks fan can tell you, this is exactly the kind of game the franchise has had a nasty history of losing. I don't care if they were playing at home against Arizona, you gotta put your best players on the field. This is no time to worry about next year.
