Seattle Wins....Seattle Wins

by: Michael Steffes\

In an excruciatingly vanilla preseason game, the Seahawks prevailed 23-16. Not too much to say about this game. My guess is that the organization knew who was going to make this team before tonight, but you never know.

Here are the highlights.....

Forsett looked fairly ordinary again. I still think he will make the team. However, he muffed a punt, which is one of the things he needs to excel at.

Payne didn't stand out as a receiver, but he was in on a bunch of special teams tackles again. That helps his cause.

Obomanu showed up, made a nice catch, and then got hurt. We will have to wait and see.

Both Babin and Atkins had good games. Babin had another sack. Atkins was solid all night.

Bryant played a lot, and played well. That guy is a freakin' load inside. Can't wait till he gets back to full strength.

Spencer, Sims, and Willis started on the line, and opened gaping holes. This included demolishing the right side of the Raiders defense on TJ Duckett's twenty-something yard TD run.

As far as the kickers go, it looks like Mare is the winner to me. The kickoffs are the difference. Hopefully Coutu isn't claimed off waivers. ~END~
