Well, at least the first half looked promising?
Marshawn Lynch put the first points on the board with a rushing touchdown, and the Bears countered with an Israel Idonije fumble recovery in the end zone to tie it. Caleb Hanie then threw a deep interception and followed that with a touchdown toss to Kahlil Bell, and the game went into the half 14-7.
Unfortunately, it went downhill from there pretty quick. Hanie, in a toss reminiscent of the NFCCG, hit defensive tackle Red Bryant for an easy interception touchdown, and later was picked by Brandon Browner for another interception touchdown. Josh McCown replaced Hanie with five minutes left in the game and was promptly picked off himself as the Seahawks ran away, 38-14.
Hanie continued to show flashes, but those flashes were almost instantly erased - like watching Rex Grossman, except his fluctuations occur from drive to drive and play to play. It'll be interesting to see if Hanie continues to start next week against the Packers or if he is benched in favor of McCown or Nathan Enderle. Tim Jennings was also benched for a time.
A couple players left for the game with injuries. Johnny Knox left early in the first with a back injury and Chris Conte was removed with an ankle injury.
Quick, disappointing numbers after the jump.
