New year, same old Seahawks

Well, well, it looks like another one of those seasons for the Seahawks. Putting together a team that has not had too much success the past few years is quite a chore, I know.

They looked like a team that could be successful this season, and after the first game being almost a runaway, everyone had hopes. They needed a few breaks, but that is the way it goes.

The second game was different. Possibly nerves, I suppose. Everyone was hoping for more than they got. The mainstay was Matt Hasselbeck, who reverted to his old ways using the football as a hot potato and then throwing to some well-covered men for three interceptions. The coach has faith in him and will live or die with him just as Mike Holmgren did.

Oh, well, I guess that is life. Somebody has to win and somebody has to lose.

I was kind of hoping for something different than in other years. Maybe next year’s quarterback will be more successful.
