Notes & Quotes

Courtesy of CBS Sportsline:

-- The Falcons/Eagles MNF game had 19.6 million viewers making it the higest rated MNF since November 11th, 2002.

-- Koenen & Roddy both had culture shock as they are used to play to crowds under 30,000 total people. The Georgia dome houses considerably more. Both players seemed unprepared for the frenzy that was the Dome on MNF. This could explain Koenen's game.

-- Since Mora Jr. has been head coach of the Falcons the team is 11-1 when leading at halftime.

Screwed might be the word to best describe the situation Hasselbeck is going to play in on Sunday. Down an offensive lineman Rod Coleman will face a green Chris Gray almost forcing the Seahawks to use Tobeck (can't believe he's still playing) or Locklear to support against Coleman. If Tobeck moves that opens lanes up for Chad Lavalais to get to Hasselbeck. If Locklear moves to support then only Mack Strong seperates Kerney from Hasselbeck.

We might also finally get to see extensive work from Ed Hartwell. The Seahawks like our on offensive unit will establish the ground game to get the passing game going. I wouldn't be surprised to see them try and send Alexander to the edges against Brooking or Williams. Hartwell excels and crashing the middle of the line and could create a traffic jam that Alexander couldn't penetrate.

-- Crumpler will play as much as necessary on Sunday. He is considered to be at 90%.

-- Roddy White is considered to be at 85% but will see PT on Sunday.

-- Allen Rossum is a gametime decision and if he isn't ready to go look for DeLo to return punts and Roddy White to return kickoffs.

We can't afford to let DeLo return punts. We are banged up enough in the secondary with out sending him out to get beat up on returning kicks. We should let Romby or DeAndra or someone return kicks/punts.
