Are You Ready for Less Football?

rcade and all, There will NOT be less football. Currently there is one national cable game a week on Sunday night and one national network game a week on Monday. People who dont have cable now only get one game. In 2006, there will still be one national cable game a week and there will still be one national network game a week. Just like now, people without cable will only get one of those games. Same amount of football, all they have done is swapped days.

"I got stabbed in the back."

I agree that Holmgren thought they would get the ball back. And according to what I heard on local (Seattle) sports radio, Alexander's record for making the yardarge on 3rd or 4th down with 1 or 2 yards to go is less than 50%. As far as signing Alexander, at the end of this year the Seahawks will have 16 unrestricted free agents and 5 restricted free agents. Included in the free agents are the big three, Alexander, Hasselbeck and Walter Jones. It appears that the Seahawks can not afford to sign all three, some of that money (please, please, please) has got to be used to buy some defensive players. Given the durability of running backs in the NFL versus QB's and offensive LT's, I would be shocked if they let Hasselbeck or Jones go so they could sign Alexander.
