After a tough luck loss to the San Francisco 49ers last week the Seattle Seahawks find themselves in an even bigger predicament against the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday, who are looking to bounce back from the drubbing they received from the Ravens,
Seattle will be without a number of their playmakers this afternoon, most notably wide receiver Sidney Rice and fullback Michael Robinson. Offensive tackles Tyler Polumbus and Jarriel King will also be inactive today, along with cornerback Byron Maxwell, and linebacker Malcolm Smith. Head coach Pete Carroll has to assume that the game played by Pittsburgh last Sunday was a bit of a fluke, and they will likely play much better than that; unfortunately they will have to do so without the help of their number one receiver, leaving Tavaris Jackson with even less options than he had before.
