Just when the Seahawks' offensive line was starting to come together, the entire right side has been snuffed out by season-ending knee injuries. In the first quarter of the Seahawks' upset win over Baltimore, down went ORG John Moffitt. In addition to providing a steady, scrappy presence on the field, team insiders tell us Moffitt had developed into an upbeat leader in the locker room. Three days later, in a routine pass-protection drill no less, down went ORT James Carpenter, who had been the team's only player to participate in every offensive play this season. "While it definitely hurts the team now, it also keeps Moffitt and Carpenter out of OTAs and minicamps next spring, so it's a double setback," said one team insider. Ex-Raider Paul McQuistan and ex-Packer Breno Giacomini have taken over for Moffitt and Carpenter, respectively, and at least are considered serviceable replacements.
