Limping Hawks aren’t much different than last year’s model


Seattle is 5-3 and atop the NFC West. The Seahawks have suffered numerous injuries and some bad defeats. They have overcome long odds and won a couple of games relatively easily.

So it’s time for the midseason report cards from the News Tribune and the Times. Both give the team passing grades, but don’t award them Summa Cum Laude status.

The P-I also looks at the Hawks at the halfway point, but doesn’t give grades.

The Everett Herald doesn’t do the midseason thing, instead Scott Johnson looks at the sack attack of last week and whether it can continue against the Rams on Sunday (1:15 p.m.; KAYU). Johnson also looks at the big payday Seneca Wallace (pictured talking with coach Mike Holmgren; Associated Press photo) may receive at the end of the year if he continues to play well.

By the way, last year at this time a relatively healthy Seahawks team was 6-2, having won four consecutive games.
