17 Power, A Seattle Seahawks Blog: Seahawks out-raven Ravens, win shocker
I'm not a big dating expert, but one thing even I've heard is that its best to "just be yourself" when you go on a big date.  Well the Seahawks were themselves today in all their goofy, awkward glory, and still scored big.  They couldn't finish drives.  They had many "almost" touchdowns that weren't.  They were penalized.  Often. Oh man, so often that it almost certainly will vault them into the #1 spot in the league.  They moved the ball well, yet nearly had as many penalties as first downs.

"It wasn't me to be honest," Lynch said. "The goal for every game is to run the ball. That's pretty much why they wanted (Tom) Cable to come here. He just took his time with us, up front and the running backs. We go hand in hand to get that thing going and now it seems like we're understanding what it is he wants, and how the run game should look."
