Of course it wasn’t ALL Russell’s fault . . .
But, it seems that the literal “boink” (Steven Haushka’s first FG miss – other than a block – this season) was the omen for the figurative “boink” (Seahawks first home loss in 2 years and first ever in the RW era)
to bullet point the pain . . .
- Turbin’s TWO fumbles rather ironic, considering “ball security” was the reason he was returning
- When given gifts, one must capitalize – Palmer threw FOUR interceptions – none converted to points
- WAY too many penalties (NINE for 102 yards, to be exact)
- he LACK of 3rd down conversions (just when we thought they’d mastered them) ~ 2 / 13 ~ y u c k ! ! !
there was SOME good . . .
And, of course, I can’t leave out the “controversy” . . .
But, as with the Seahawks only Super Bowl appearance, good play can overcome bad calls. Unfortunately, despite their many bad plays, the Cards had more good plays than the Hawks today.
Here’s hoping THIRD TIME IS THE CHARM . . .
