Will Kelly, S. Alexander Be Active Sunday?

Some interesting roster decisions for Sunday's game will loom for Jim Zorn. Wide receiver Malcolm Kelly is healthy and expected to play Sunday in Seattle, but Zorn said that could be a game-time decision as he assesses how far along Kelly is in terms of knowing the playbook and where to be at all times.

"I have to trust that he can do what's called for," Zorn said. If Kelly is active, it could lead to a tight end being down, or perhaps a running back. For now, Zorn is leaning toward having running back Shaun Alexander, a former Seattle star, up for the game and dressing four running backs again with Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts battling injuries, but he said that's not a certainty.


At one point today Zorn said that "having four running backs up is a luxury," but he also spoke of the need to have reserves ready given the situation with Betts and Portis. Especially with Portis missing practice again, "putting Shaun down doesn't make any sense to me right now." Overall, Zorn said he won't make these decisions until Sunday morning.

...

Zorn will be inducted into the Washington State Sports Hall of Fame this weekend, but won't be able to take part in most of the festivities given his responsibilities with the Redskins, and he's focused solely on the game. He called it "a true honor to be recognized" with the induction, but added that, "I've got business to take care of."

Zorn's playing games with Seattle like he did last week with CP and Dallas. Guys can't decide whether to prepare for Kelly. And, not only that, if they do decide to prepare for Kelly, they don't have much film to look at, do they?

I predict Fred Davis will be inactive.

You need bodies at WR and RB considering injuries. And you can't inactive Yoder with our Pass Pro issues.

Having to make any of your roster "inactive" is mad lame anyway. Why not just be able to suit up everyone on your roster.

The NFL roster rules are dumb. If I were in charge I would:

1. expand roster to 60

2. Have IR be 3 tiered. Season ending IR would be unlimited, but there would also be 4 and 8 week IRs. I would limit the amount of players that could be placed there.

3. You suit up the full roster.

4. Kill the emergency QB rule.

I think Zorn said as much about Davis not being active with his remark about him not knowing he should be going out on a pass route.

It might be a good idea to activate Kelly this week b/c nobody has game film on him. Only a suggestion, not a big deal.

Posted by: BeantownGreg | November 20, 2008 4:47 PM

1. Because he doesn't have MJDrew's linemen.
2. Because he's not MJDrew.

Look, every coach has tried Rock as an RB and none of them have used him. Further, in free agency, no one wanted him. He's not a RB. He's a special teams guy who can't down a ball on the one yard line.

Posted by: dealer1 | November 20, 2008 4:51 PM | Report abuse

Psps23, we have lost games due to mistakes and lack of sustained pass protection by our line. Mainly due to Jansen's lack of athleticism, and recently Samuels' injury. Against dallas, Rabach struggled with their DT. Also contributing to the blocking problems has been the injuries to our RBs.

When the line was blocking better (and the RBs were healthy) our passing games was doing fine.

Lack of quality depth at the OL is the main problem, and our biggest need now and in the future.

IMO.

In our 4 team FF division, Nate and I are tied at 8-3, Moo is at 7-4 and Batch is 1-10. 2 games left -- I play Batch. Batch just happens to have drawn to an inside straight this week, with guys who were backups now starting and so he's predicted to win (forecast for over 100 points)

Moo is favored over Nate. So if it all plays out, we'll have 3 teams, all 8-4, going into the final week.

Meanwhile, JohnD aka the Jackalopes and 4th are in a tie at the top of their division. Dealer, with his nutty upset, is also tied for the lead in his division. Zornskins still dominates the league, at 10-1, which means Alex is playing for pride the rest of the way

You don't have to control that ball.

you touch it, it's down. The refs are wrong.

lets say it landed on the 20 and he picked it up and ran with it - where would it be down? where he touched it and took off - not an inch further.

Let's look at the official rule:

"If a member of the kicking team attempting to down the ball on or inside opponent’s 5-yard line carries the ball into the end zone, it is a touchback. "

http://www.nfl.com/rulebook/kicksfromscrimmage

The ball wasn't in the endzone. Ever. The player didn't have the ball in his posession in the endzone. Ever. The player (Rock) had enough control to get rid of the ball BEFORE he entered the endzone.

The only time he touched the ball when he was in the endzone was when the other player kicked it into his butt. The ball was already down by then.

He downed the ball. The refs were wrong. Rock should sing that song 'till his dying day.

I can't believe I'm still arguing this. If you were a dallsjk wonk, I could understand.

Notebook | Seahawks DE Patrick Kerney is out for the season with shoulder injury
Seahawks defensive end Patrick Kerney, who has missed the past three games with a shoulder injury, was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, ending his season.

By José Miguel Romero

Seattle Times staff reporter

..........................

Shaun's sympathy
Shaun Alexander is feeling for his former teammates as they go through the misery of a 2-8 season.
"Honestly, it still kills me on the inside because I love those boys," he said Wednesday.
He became the NFL's Most Valuable Player and spent the first seven years of his career in Seattle; his new team, Washington, faces the Seahawks on Sunday.
"I've seen just about all of them come in and watched them mature as players," Alexander said. "To see Lofa [Tatupu] go through all the bumps and bruises and know that he can't move as well as he did, I feel that. I went through that. Seeing Matt [Hasselbeck] with the whole back thing and people looking at the team and wondering what's going on, I feel that. I feel that for the boys because those were my guys."
Alexander was referring to all of the injuries the Seahawks have dealt with this season. As for himself, he's glad to be back in the NFL but not expecting much of a reaction from the Qwest Field crowd when he takes the field. At least nothing like the smattering of boos he heard as he struggled to get his yards the past two seasons.
"I'm the third running back," Alexander said dryly. He's behind starter Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts.
He added, "There's not like a taunting thing that can go on and there's not like a really jovial thing that can go on. I'm just a part of the system out here instead of being an impact to the system in Seattle."
Alexander has 11 carries for 24 yards in four games. He was signed on Oct. 14 when Washington was dealing with injuries at running back.
Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren never wanted the Seahawks' career leading rusher to go. But the decision to release Alexander in the offseason was not Holmgren's call.
"That happens with personnel. Not everyone agrees on everything all the time and the reasons for it," Holmgren said. "I wasn't sure he'd lost his quickness, let me put it that way. The last two years he had been hurt. His leg and then his wrist, and that clearly affected him. And he had never been hurt before."

This one's for you, t_e...


"To My Love" by Steve Martin
(Originally performed on "Saturday Night Live," 5/20/1989)

When a man meets the woman he loves, everything changes. His heart races, his head spins. And suddenly, all the dozens and dozens of women he’s sleeping with no longer matter. A few years ago, I found the woman I love, and I put some of my feelings into this little ode:

Every man needs a woman, and I need you.

To lift me when I am sad.

To comfort me when I am down.

To clean me when I am drunk.

To walk beside me when I want to look like I’m not gay.

To walk in front of me when I need someone to act as a human windbreak.

To kiss me when I'm horny.

To massage me when I am tense. And/or horny.

To make me horny when I am not horny.

And then, to watch me fall asleep.

I need you, darling.

To clean between my toes when they are not clean to my satisfaction.

To pick the nits out of my hair when I have head lice.

To try milk for me when I am not sure of the expiration date.

To be there when I need you to be there.

And to be out of town the rest of the time.

My darling, although it may seem sentimental, I want to take this moment to tell you I love you, because I don’t want to lose half my stuff.

And even though you are far away across the ocean, I always have this to remind me … (points to an empty ring finger)…sorry! (cough)

Good night, my love.

Look, when you build a highway, you know some people are going to die on it. But you don't go and build it from marshmallows and set the speed limit at 5 mph because of it. Sheesh!

This is very helpful. When I write my next football poem, I now have a word that rhymes with Houshmenzadah.

We need a pass rusher and we drafted 14 guys in the 2nd round who allegedly catch passes. Kelly isn't very fast and he has a bad knee. I give up. My new favorite team is the Jets.

For the first time this season, stubborn Zorny is getting on my nerves. He needs to play Kelly--PERIOD. Alexander has looked awful in the carries he gets. He is no insurance policy, so sit him down. Rock or even Sellars can carry the load if Portis and Betts can't go. In fact, I'd like to see sellars get at least 5 to 6 touches a game, either run plays or passes in the flat to keep teams honest. Guy is tough to bring down.

Zorn is acting super conservative and is starting to show some Seahawks baggage with this Shaun Alexander attachment disorder that I at first thought was harmless, but is now appearing more alarming.
