Seahawks Blow Windy Thursday Night Game

Oh, the memories of last year and the fun of blogging the Seahawk season. The 'Hawks could be on the verge of blowing a "chip shot" trip to the play-offs as they lost the third game in a row to to an NFC West "bottom feeder" With the exception of a touchdown pass in the last minute of the game, the Seahawks where not able to execute on either side of the ball in a 24-14 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. More than any other time this season, this game proved that this year's team was not Super Bowl calibre. While the defense kept the "Niners" in check for most of the first half, the offense for the most part was unable to capitalize against the NFL's 32nd rank defense. In the second half, young Quarterback Alex Smith looked totally All Pro and Frank Gore turned his running game on as the Niners powered it's way to it's second victory over the 'Hawks this season.
The game was played amid reports of a huge aproaching storm. Wind and rain pelted the field in the first half, but by the second conditions were more ideal. It feels now that the storm could be hitting us soon!
