2. The offensive line. It was purely offensive. Hasselbeck was sacked five times and was scrambling at least that many times over again. Early in the season we could pin the blame on injuries but this is the third game the line has been not only the same but the line Seattle planned on using after the preseason. There is no excuse for them not to be better except that possibly the players themselves are not as good as advertised.
3. DPI calls. Another game, another bogus defensive pass interference on Marcus Trufant. He leads the league in DPI calls despite having missed most of the season so far due to a back injury.
4. Time outs. San Francisco called time out on the first play of the game. Within 10 minutes of the first quarter, the 49ers were out of time outs completely. I was praying for a controversial call against San Francisco that Mike Singletary couldn’t challenge because he was out of timeouts. Once again, I was thwarted.
Seattle travels to Houston next Sunday to face the Texans. It should be an interesting match between two 5-7 teams. Both have the slimmest of playoff chances. Both are probably going to be eliminated soon.
