Clausen? Ew

They should sign Blachard and throw him out there, at least there would be some potential excitement.

Pete Carroll not happy with the officiating with the Packers (remember a game a few years ago??_

Pete Carroll blames officiating mistake for Packers’ biggest play(PFT)

Posted by Michael David Smith on September 21, 2015, 6:35 PM EDT

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is not done complaining about the officiating following Sunday night’s loss in Green Bay.

Carroll, who said after the game that the officials wrongly awarded the ball to the Packers after a fumble that the Seahawks recovered, also says that a crucial pass interference penalty against the Seahawks never should have happened. According to Carroll, the officials should have blown the play dead as soon as Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett jumped offside, and not kept the play going to give Aaron Rodgers a free play, which he used to draw a 52-yard pass interference penalty on Richard Sherman.

“Remember when they got us to jump offsides and then they get the 53-yard pass interference penalty?” Carroll said on ESPN 710 Seattle. “That’s a total mistake on the officials’ part. We jump offsides, their offensive line, the right guard and tackle stand up, the play’s dead. That play never happened. It never should have happened. It would have been a 5-yard penalty. It would have been second-and-12 backed up with 30 seconds left. That was a huge deal to us. It never should have gotten to that point. . . . That was the biggest play of the game for them, really.”

Carroll also says the officials shouldn’t have ejected Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright for a skirmish that Carroll claims was more the fault of Packers tight end Richard Rodgers.

“K.J. didn’t swing back or nothing, so I don’t know,” he said. “I don’t know what to tell you on that one. I can see if they could have called it both ways, but for him to get thrown out when the other guy threw the punch, I don’t know.”

It was a rough Sunday night for the Seahawks, and Carroll doesn’t sound like he’s over it yet.

Love it that Carroll is still whining about the officiating. I think the game was officiated pretty well, actually. But that he is still not over it gives that team another distraction. Really, I wouldn't be shocked if they don't make the playoffs this year.

Brings to mind when the Bears were better offensively with McCown filling in for an injured Cutler. The most telling indictment of Cutler yet.

Their Super Bowl odds probably improved with Cutler out.

They may actually be a better team with him on the bench.

But they still have to pay him. Money they could have used to keep Peppers, for example.

That's the thing. So many teams are paying big money for lousy QBs. There are probably 4 guys worth top dollar and a lot of scared GMs who won't say no. Build up your team and hope lightning strikes in the draft or at least hope you find competence with a young guy or find a geezer you don't have to pay.

The Colts looked terrible last night. This is the club so many talking heads penciled in to win the Super Bowl? Now that they are 0-2 they might not even make the playoffs. Sloppy play and Luck was constantly under siege. The Jets D is pretty good but they have Ryan Fitzpatrick and his beard under center. He is the definition of "journey man". If they had a really good QB the Jets would have blown Indy out last night.

Other than New England, those are pretty winnable games. Carolina on the road looks to be the second toughest game for them.

I don't know man, the Colts should have lost to JAX and TEN. TEN really had that game in hand. The Colts don't look too hot.
Meh.

Kyri Thornton is now a Detroit Lion. Claimed off waivers from New England.

Wonder if that's a move in preparation for our meeting in three weeks? Or are they just that desperate...?
