A couple of things to watch

by: Chris Sullivan

Just wanted to give you guys a few personal feats to keep your eyes on...

  1. John Carlson needs 1 touchdown reception to hold sole possession of the franchise tight end receiving records -- he broke the yards record two weeks ago, the receptions record last week, and perhaps the TD record today.
  2. Lofa Tatupu needs 7 tackles today in order to become the second NFL player to collect at least 100 tackles in each of his first four season.
  3. Seneca Wallace has won more games as a starter (3) than Matt Hasselbeck (1), due largely to injuries to Matt. Still, Wallace has stepped up as a leader on this team, and in 2 of the last 3 weeks has had a 100+ QB rating. Matt has one game over 100 this year (Rams), but that was also the only game above 75 on the year.
So, there ya go. I'll also be watching Wilson on the blitz, Mebane to continue his domination, and the hodgepodge offensive line to continue looking better than the starters did much of this year. Go Wrotto! Go Williams! Go Vallos and Womack, on Willis, on... uh... damn, only five. But you get the idea...
