    the curtis fumble was an absolute killer. You cant make that kind of mistake in this type of game.

    Re: What hurt us more?

    Where was the attempt to run the ball in the second half? Bulger takes two bad sacks (almost a safety) in the 4th. There was no attemp to run the ball to get better field position. With a decent running game, the Rams would have won the game handily.
    The Rams defense make great big plays, but they don't stop the little plays. They only needed to make one more play on the last drive and the game was over. One sack, one more incomplete pass, but they let the Seahawks easily drive into scoring position.

    Re: What hurt us more?

    I was ranting about Travis Fisher at the bar I was at. I did not see him attempt to turn around and play the ball once when he was in coverage, instead drawing pass interferance or allowing the catch. As for Hill, this is why I would have rather had Butler out there; too many rookie mistakes.

    Re: What hurt us more?

    Our secondary looked bad Sunday. However, IMO while they played poorly, those results had more to do with precision execution from Hass and their receivers than our secondary's lackluster play.

    The O-line getting pressured by a 3-man rush on the other hand is just sad. Five guys getting beat by three.....just can't happen.

    Giving up a TD on 3rd and 15; horrific play by the DB's. Where's Butler and Bartell? I hope Brown is ready to play against the Chargers.

    Or a lack of a pass rush that alowed Hass to make the play.

    Re: What hurt us more?

    Triple coverage allows a bomb for a TD. Totally unacceptable !

    I have to admit that was a perfect throw by Hass. Doesn't matter triple coverage, c'mon !

    Where is option C) Both A and B?

    It's hard to pick one because the hawks exploited both of these weaknesses to perfection.

    Re: What hurt us more?

    How about an inability to make proper halftime adjustments and match our first half intensity in the second half? We looked like we were on fire through two quarters only to come out flatter than a day old can of Diet Pepsi in the second half.

    Hate to say it because I like the job Linehan's done thus far this year, but maybe that's the difference between a veteran coach like Holmgren and a rookie head coach in Linehan. Holmgren's team made the adjustments they needed to make at halftime, whereas it looked as if the Rams started a victory party in the locker room and forgot there were still 30 minutes on the clock.

    Again, not blaming Linehan specifically, but clearly this was a tale of two halves, and you have to wonder what happens when a team does a complete 180 like we did from first to second half.

    Re: What hurt us more?

    I blame the OL they gave up way to much pressure Orlando Pace was getting beat by a three man rush, when was the last time that happened. The OL specifically the OG spots are hurting us, I have not been impressed with Incognito or Timmerman thus far.

    I think this will be priority one in the next offseason.

    Re: What hurt us more?

    As much as we all hate hearing it, even I do...This truly is a transition year, and Linehan is a first year head coach, and if we're going to blame his play calling, give him a break. The seahawks did go to the Superbowl last year, and the more I think about it, the more we see that this team can win games, and play with the elite, and win. We may not have a W this week. But I seriously think if we play with the 1st half intensity we had this week with a whole game, we'd truly be unstoppable. That's what our problem was.
