(Maybe) More Bad News For Hawks Fans: Burleson Out For Season

posted by on September 8 at 15:10 PM

The Seahawks wide receiving corps suffered another blow Monday, with news that Nate Burleson would be out for the season with a torn ACL, Sports Radio 950 KJR-AM in Seattle reported on Monday.

Burleson hurt himself during Sunday’s loss to the Bills, leaving the game early. The injury occured when he tripped himself up while trying to cut back for a pass at the Bills’ 20-year line. After the game, though, he told reporters that he expected to play next Sunday against the 49ers.

I just got a text from a friend telling me this was also on ESPN, but nobody else seems to be reporting it.

If Burleson’s out, the Hawks offense is well and truly fucked until Bobby Engram and Deion Branch are back to form. Seattle’s green, almost-all-rookie receiving corp caught something like four passes on Sunday and it’s evident that the stink of Shaun Alexander is still lingering in the Hawks’ backfield.

Keep your fingers crossed, kids.

Fuck: Danny O’Neil confirms.

The Seahawks could still win the division considering the Rams and the Niners are in it. The Cardinals are the #1 team to beat in the West and they were 500 last year.

Why so sad? It's not like they're any good, with or without him.

My GF is right; Seattle has the most fairweather fans in the nation. How did the sports stadium measures even pass?

You're right. And they didn't.

i guess the espundits can now justify the cards moving up meme.

The Bills have a 20-year line? What's that?

Where's Seneca Wallace? Maybe the Hawks can run the triple option :P

Fortunately the NFC West sucks. 7-9 might win it.

@ Gomez -- maybe they're still saving him up...

Yeah, 8-8 or even 7-9 will get you the division but if you dont have an o-line it doesn't matter who the WR is.

This is shaping up to be a horrible year for football in this state. Are Central or Western any good this season?

I got this message from the Yahoo Fantasy League ince the Hawks are my defense. "Seattle has been dropped by 19655 teams in Yahoo! leagues."

Lemming that I am I dropped them too and replaced them with Philadelphia and am trading QB Jake Delhome (to the team whom lost Brady) for Arizona as a backup. I also picked up Chad Pennington as Romo's back up.

I'm feeling optimistic about my chances, but a bit disloyal to the Hawks.

Fucking Raiders pulled Walker so I couldn't switch him to Jackson in time for kickoff.
