They're young. And they don't have an established leader who can keep their focus steady every week. They also seem to lack any tangible goals. They just go from week to week without the intensity and focus an NFL team needs to be successful.
Question on the Falcons: How deflating is this loss, especially considering their loss in Tampa last week?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
After missing last week's game with a sprained ankle, Atlanta RB Warrick Dunn ran for 101 yards. He had just 17 yards in the second half, though. ... Hasselbeck was sacked twice, but didn't lose any yards. He fumbled on the first sack, and then scrambled back to the line of scrimmage on the second. ... Brooking had 12 tackles, the 14th straight game he's had 10 or more. ... The Seahawks failed on two fourth-and-1s, with Hasselbeck stuffed one time and Alexander stopped on the other.
