Go Hawks

SI.com – 2006 NFL Playoffs – Cowboys blown FG keeps Seahawks alive – Sunday January 7, 2007 3:18AMI’m as happy as anyone the Hawks beat Dallas last night. I was at the game and yelling as loudly as anyone. The last playoff game I attended was in 1984, that’s quite a dry spell. But look… Holmgren sucks.Yes, Hasselback had a bad game and yes the cornerbacks sell insurance full time for a living and yes something is wrong with the O-line. But c’mon, the Hawks had the ball first and goal on the one yard line. What do you do there? Well let’s see. How about a two tight end set with three guys in the back field and just push ahead for a yard, a touchdown, and make the Cowboys come and beat you. But no, Mr. Super Genius decides to run Alexander outside to the left which hasn’t worked all game. Bam, second and 8. They never get close. I thought the game would die right there, Cowboys do a clock-killing drive and it’s over. Of course they returned the favor, bungling a pass to Terry Glenn (arguably a decent call since Glenn had made some nice catches in the game). So what is lost in all of the hoopla of Romo muffing the snap is Holmgren’s play calling almost killing the Hawks, again. Really, what will it take before someone wakes the game up and informs him that no one thinks he’s Bill Walsh, he can just play smart football?Okay, enough grumping…. I had a ticket from a co-worker and I sat on the 49 yard line on the Seahawk side of the stadium and it was fun. Loads of fun.
