Default Alexander next to take crack at Steelers 'D'

Alexander next to take crack at Steelers 'D'
By Scott Brown
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Friday, October 5, 2007


Shaun Alexander will try to become the first running back to rush for 100 yards against the Steelers in 30 games Sunday.
The Seattle Seahawks running back nearly accomplished the feat when the teams met in Super Bowl XL. But Alexander may not be the same player who gained 95 yards on 20 carries against the Steelers in February 2006.

Alexander has a crack in his left wrist, and while he has been able to play with the injury, he has been forced to wear a cast.

It has prevented the 2005 NFL MVP from switching the ball between arms when running and may limit Alexander in other ways.

"I think he would say it doesn't bother him too much." Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren said, "and I think he is being honest. I think a running back, receiver or any of those skills guys that have to wear a cast, it is going to change your program someway or somehow."
Alexander has rushed for 388 yards in four games and has a pair of 100-yard games. Holmgren said the Seahawks have to do a better job of blocking for Alexander.

"He is going to have a great year," Holmgren said.

A great game Sunday may be another story, considering how stingy the Steelers are against the run. In addition to their streak of not allowing a 100-yard rusher, the Steelers are yielding only 81.3 rushing yards per game this season.

"That's what we pride ourselves on," nose tackle Casey Hampton said. "We stop the run real good and I don't expect it to be any different this week."

Your going to be there? Wow, that's one more Seahawk fan than was at the Super Bowl...

Holmgren is already drafting a curt complaint to the NFL as to the Steelers already putting his team at a disadvantage by not providing Latte's....

...google Holmgren complaining.....172,354 hits.
