Not sure I have the stomach for the fourth quarter. Maybe, better said, not sure if tape of the fourth quarter will tell me much. The rest of the game, however ugly, is worth analyzing, because if the Seahawks are going to fail this completely, I would like to know why.
- Kentwan Balmer continued to succeed as Seattle's strongside end. He split a double team and shed a pull blocker and was able to accomplish the nigh-impossible: stop Brandon Jacobs where the two met. Lawyer Milloy assisted the tackle and the two stopped Jacobs after two.
- The next play ended in a 17 yard reception that Steve Smith dove and caught away from Marcus Trufant. Mostly good placement of the pass and an excellent catch--no knock on Tru.
- Before all that, there was a shining moment when something good almost happened. What pitiful saps we are to cherish the almost good.
