Seattle’s MNF experience is a win-win


Only got to watch the first quarter last night, but my question to you is:

Are the Seahawks that good or are the Raiders that bad?

My vote is b, the Raiders are that bad. But it was exactly what Seattle needed on this Monday night in November - the Inland Northwest's best sports month (tell us your favorite here) - just a win baby.

With Monday Night Football – even this year's MNF-lite on ESPN – in town, the Seattle-area papers went nuts, so to speak.

First, let's link to Jim Meehan's column about the game, along with the game story we ran and the notebook.

Now on to Seattle.

Here are the game stories: The Times; P-I; and News Tribune.

The columns: the P-I's Art Thiel, Ted Miller and Jim Moore; the News Tribune's Dave Boling and John McGrath; the Herald's John Sleeper; and the Times' Steve Kelley and Jerry Brewer.

The best sidebars: The Times on Mike Holmgren "feeling" Shaun Alexander will miss one more game; The P-I on the weather parting for the game; The News Tribune on backup defensive tackle Craig Terrill, who admits his sack dance needs work; and the Herald on the defense.
