ARE WE GETTING THERE ? SPORTS WISE THAT IS?
Had to put in the quantifier to the above headline. We all know the answer to the question
of are we getting right? As a society , not a chance! We are moving in the right
direction but good lord oh might do we have a long way to go. We all know patience is a virtue but
sheez! Okay let me get to the business at hand. Sports.
The Seattle Seahawks definitely
got right with a much needed 31-7
win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Jaguars were the perfect tonic
for a team that was on a threegame
losing streak and as we mentioned
last week getting blurry
eyed, long on the tooth and going
down that who can I trust rabbits’
hole. A solid effort from your defense,
special teams and stellar
play from your backup quarterback
will put that bounce to your
step and have you walk around
with your head held high with that
bourgeoise look. Seahawks safety
Quandre Diggs got his third interception of the season on Sunday, and he became the only current
player in the NFL to record at least three interceptions five years in a row. Backup quarterback Geno
Smith completed 20 of 24 passes for 195. At one point in the game the brother was 14 of 14 in
passes attempted and completed. And special teams? How about this one? The Jaguars scored a late
fourth quarter touchdown and tried an onside kick. Dig this , instead of jumping on the attempted
onside kick, Travis Homer scooped the errant ball and rambled 44 yards for the touchdown. And you
already know , the play sent 12 Nation into an obsolete frenzy, hooting, hollering and high fiving
one and all. Here is what head coach Pete Carroll had to say about the teams win.
This was a really good game for us, one we needed badly just to get at home and have fun with the
fans. It was a really well-played game for us. Defense did a fantastic job all day long really across the
board, and just did what we hoped they would do. We continue it get better. We can see it, we're proving
it, and we need to keep counting on it as we head into the second half here. The second half
started today,” Well kind of sort of coach. The Seahawks were given a few days off because it a bye
week and they will return next week to start the second half of the season which is looking pretty
rosy for the moment.
