To win, Seattle needs to improve offensive line


Will Matt Hasselbeck survive the season?

There seems to be some question about that right now, with the guy asking the biggest ones being Hawks' coach Mike Holmgren.

According to Holmgren, quoted in Danny O'Neil's Times story, "the quarterback is getting hit too much."

It's pretty obvious the Hawks' offensive line isn't getting it done – at least to the P-I's Art Thiel in his column today.

And Holmgren is the guy charged with changing that.

But maybe he doesn't have enough ammunition, or his ammunition is getting old.

The Rams, currently leading the NFC West, will try to take advantage of that in what has become one of the NFL's most interesting rivalries.

Of course, St. Louis might have a secret weapon. Former Seahawks Isaiah Kacyvenski may have inside information to pass on.
