The loss of Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor and Shaquill Griffin to injuries changed Seattle’s Monday night game, and possibly the season. But the Seahawks (6-4) remain in the playoff race, one game behind the Rams for the lead in the NFC West.
Seahawks GM John Schneider must begin mulling the team’s future. He also might want to consider the mistakes in the past. Specifically, mistakes committed by the Hawks SoDo district neighbors, the Seattle Mariners.
Seattle needs Brown, its three-time Pro Bowl left tackle, playing tonight against Falcons defensive end Adrian Clayborn. Brown is questionable because of an ankle injury. Clayborn had six sacks in his last game, against backup left tackles from Dallas.
The Seahawks’ strong safety hasn’t practiced since he got a neck stinger nerve injury late in last week’s win at Arizona. An NFL Network report says Chancellor is expected to miss the rest of the season.
