Crossroads time for the Seahawks. They’re 2-3 after dropping the Thursday nighter to the Rams, 26-17. Seattle and the ‘Niners are on thin ice in the cutthroat NFC West.
The Seahawks are in a world of hurt, with Russell Wilson’s status uncertain after suffering a badly sprained middle finger (Russell Wilson’s Bird?) on his throwing hand in the third quarter of that loss to the Rams. Wilson’s longest consecutive game starting streak (149) among active NFL quarterbacks is in jeopardy. Seattle does have ten days before its next game Sunday, October 17 in Pittsburgh.
San Francisco (2-2) plays at 4-0 Arizona Sunday. That is zero fun, sir.
La’ell Collins is pissing me off. I’ll leave it at that.
Panthers’ RB Christian McCaffrey says he wants to play Sunday against the 1-3 Eagles. Bad idea. I saw that hammy explode two weeks ago against the Texans. He looked like he had taken a blast of buckshot in the back of his leg. Sit, man. Hamstrings are insidious. You only THINK you’re okay. You’re on a very good team and it’s a very long season. No reason to rush this.
BB and I are in Chicago. Lotsa folks around here didn’t like that 6-1 whuppin’ the ‘Stros hung on the White Sox Thursday. But I did. Thanks, I’ll have another!
Dodgers at Giants in Game One Friday night. Seismic. (Perhaps that’s a poor choice of words in the Bay Area.)
I hope you will check out our just-dropped podcast here on this website. It is a fascinating conversation with my buddy and longtime San Antonio media star Chris Duel. Yeah, we talked sports…but as sports relates to actual life in the actual world. Chris didn’t hold back. Neither did I. This one’s a keeper!
