The Broncos are leading the 'Hawks 6-3 at the half.
The 'Hawks starting offense couldn't get much going. Matt Hasselbeck was 2-of-7 for 16 yards. Shaun Alexander ran for 24 yards on 5 carries.
Koren Robinson made his first catch of the preaseason, hauling in a 45-yard pass from Seneca Wallace in front of Champ Bailey. The Robinson catch was the big play on the 'Hawks first scoring drive that led to a Josh Brown 28-yard field goal.
As for the 'Hawks defense, they didn't allow the Broncos to reach the end zone in the 1st half. But Jake Plummer was 12-of-21 for 103 yards. He will most likely be replaced in the 2nd half. Quinton Griffin ran for 55 yards on 14 carries. If this were a regular season game, I'd be banging my head against the wall right now. But thank God this is only preseason. I'm sure Ray Rhodes will have this defense ready for New Orleans Sept. 12.
The most important part of the game so far is that nobody has gotten hurt as far as players go. However, there was an older gentleman on the Seahawks sideline that had to be taken off the field by EMTs. Hopefully he will be OK.
Go 'Hawks. Stay healthy. And stay classy.
