How is Wilson's ankle? Will he play in LA? Early season drama as usual from the Hawks! Going to be a fun fall football season!

Listening to Brock and Sauk now and it sounded like all the tests came back clear so that is hopeful anyway.

I'd be very surprised if he misses the next game. But I'm sure they will devise a game plan to keep the Rams d-line at bay, probably a lot of draws and screens.

They may score fewer points against the Rams than they did against Miami.

Seems like your backup will be your future! He isn't half bad, if it wasn't for that Williams guy not going out of bounds the Cowboys might have won that game.

Nahh... would have been an impossibly long field goal.   Maybe one shot at a Hail Mary.

Sounded like their kicker was nailing long balls all day with many yards to spare, sounds like there could have been at least a chance.

If he went out of bounds it would have been at roughly the 45... which would have been a 63-yard field goal.     The all time record is 64 yards and that was done at 5,280 feet in elevation in Denver.   :)

I still think it was a major bone headed play by Williams not to get out of bounds and at least give his team one more chance either by Hail Mary or FG.

You know that Dan Bailey is the most accurate kicker in NFL history... He has kicked a 57 and I believe 59 yards before... If any kicker could it would be him.

Yeah he looked pretty decent in his first game! Still need Romo bad tho.. and no idea why Williams decided to do that. I guess he thought there was more time on the clock but still... No timeouts.

And yet somehow I think the Rams will come out and play the Seahawks really tough as usual.     Seems impossible but it always happens.

 

Wilson should be better than 50% according to the reports this morning.

I sort of feel like Romo is never really there... he comes back for a couple games and then he is gone for months.      He would be awesome if he was not so fragile.

I don't mind it. I played for probably 7 or 8 years. Until I fried my arm. Not very Canadian of me, but I would watch baseball over hockey.

I agree 100%. The year he stayed heathly in 2014 he had the top QBR out of every QB in the NFL. If he can just stay healthy.. oh well.

Wasn't he good for like a half season or so until the Seahawks took him out of that game a few years ago? Seems hazy now!

He shouldn't have been in that playoff game at the end of the 2012 season... going up against the Legion of Boom on that crappy field in DC.   That was the start of the end for him.   He was never the same again.

Honestly I think he just got on a hot tear until you guys (Seahawks) destroyed him. What a bust he has became.

By the way... if the Ducks just kicked all of their extra points they might have won game.   

 

Cocky just to be cocky and it backfires.    They left 4 points on the field going for 2 every time.

I am just sick of watching the Seahawks offense SUCK in the first half to 3 quarters of every game.   

 

Tom Brady says he plays every drive like the game is on the line in the 4th quarter.   The Seahawks should give that a try.

Why the hell would you go for the long ball when you just needed 7yrds. Though I have to say the refs are leaning a little towards LA. The call against Lockett was very wimpy.
