Couple Things I Noticed This NFL Week...

1. You can bash Don Capers all you want, and he did make some questionable calls over the course of the game, but holding the Eagles to 16 points is nothing short of spectacular. A lot of people (myself included) thought that for the Packers to win, this was going to have to be a shootout, but that's not what happened. Our defense contained arguably the best passing game in the NFC, and one of the better rushers in the NFC. Granted, there were injuries to Jackson and Vick, and Akers missed two field goals, but the point is, our defense made a statement tonight.

2. Matt Hasselbeck has been the ultimate Saints killer this season. A great game in the regular season and a awsome game in the postseason, helps the Seahawks to an upset (and cost a lot of people money). The thing is, Matt Hasselbeck has finally found something he can enjoy over the last 4 years. Statistically demolishing the Saints.

3. I think we have our future RB in James Starks. I know it was only one game, but watching this guy run is like looking at your lawn right after you've mowed it. It's satisfying. This guy hits holes hard, when there isn't a hole, he creates one, and when he gets tackled, he almost always falls forward. I really don't think Jackson is the answer. Starks as the regular runningback with Kuhn as the fullback. Maybe trade Grant for something, or Jackson.

4. Injuries have limited the Jets from achieving the spectacular defense they had last year, but they came up clutch in the playoffs against Peyton Manning. BTW, another loss for Manning in the playoffs. I know there have been injuries, but it's gotta be dissapointing to not get past the wild-card round when most seasons, you don't even play a game that week.
