Halftime update: A week of empty preparation

A poor game plan and lackadaisical attitude has left the Seahawks trailing 30-7 at half. I have continually stressed the importance of starting fast and stealing momentum on the road; Once again, they have given up an opening drive touchdown. My largest criticism with Pete Carroll is his overwhelming focus on the fourth quarter. While closing a game is vital, the Hawks must find a way to start a game in winning fashion.

Furthermore, I have major concerns about the game plan executed thus far. Where is Justin Forsett? Why is Lofa Tatupu covering Vernon Davis on the first drive and how did Davis get wide open, on first down, for a 42 yard catch and run touchdown? Has this defense worked on tackling lately? No-contact practice on Friday's is proving to be a poor change in the weekly routine. I expected a very different game plan and thought this team would be better prepared. I haven’t lost my belief in this organization for  current or future success, but I have released my expectations for this season. The Seahawks can still win the NFC West, but I no longer expect them too.
