SF almost caught me sleeping on them this week. They played pretty good defense and their offense was fairly efficient. Running game let them chew up the clock the first few quarters. Was a good game. Seattle manages to stay undefeated at this point but injuries continue to pile up just as they are on all teams. Next up is the 2nd game against STL whose only loss was to SEA in Seattle. This time the game goes to STL in a very important mid season game.
Good game jtt50. Detroit gave us a good effort. We played well on offense in this game putting up 40 points, defense could have been a little better but for now I'll take it. Had 2 lost fumbles in this one which isn't acceptable. On the plus side, the defense recovered a fumble for a touchdown. The bad news from this game, we had a serious injury to one of our best players on defense. The good news is he will be back in time for the playoffs. The bad news we have our second game with Seattle up next. Not a game you want to go into at less than full strength.
Seattle presents a number of challenges particularly on the offensive side of the ball. They have highly skilled players at practically every position. They run primarily a pass heavy game plan, but they have a star RB that can get first downs when they need them so we can not overlook the run game in this one. Last game they had a phenomenal 4th quarter which we did not respond well to. STL can not allow that to happen if we want to win this time around. On defense Seattle has some great defensive ends and a good secondary. Making moving the ball through the air difficult. Running against them has also not been an easy task. The STL defense will need to get stops and the offense will need to make every possession count. It will also be crucial we win the turnover battle. It is quite likely this game will decide the divisional champion and possibly other playoff implications.
To add to the resigning discussion, I'm in the middle of resigning the core of my team and I can tell you all its not been easy. With the way things are going I won't be competing in the next couple years of free agency. So the changes that have been made are having an affect.
