Seahawks DT Marcus Tubbs out for season

Ah, fickle fate. After missing most of 2006 with an injury to his left knee, and spending the offseason rehabbing from microfracture surgery, Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Marcus Tubbs tore his right anterior cruciate ligament yesterday. He will miss all of 2007. And you can safely add another 200 rushing yards to your fantasy projections for Frank Gore and Steven Jackson.

Huge loss of a true space eater in the middle. This makes Lofas job a hell of a lot harder. I haven't finalized my NFC West predictions, but this is a key loss for Seattle.

While the ligament is certainly *crucial*, I believe it is an "Anterior CRUCIATE Ligament"

Where's the BREAKING NEWS Extra Point about Rodney Harrison being suspended for 4 games for apparently admitting to purchasing HGH?

does this make SF the NFC West favorite?

#3: This is a Pats fan site, didn't you know that? :-)

Scratch the Seahawks from winning the division. That's two scratches today of would-be division winners.

Sometimes the best move a team can make is to not make any moves at all and just wait for a division rival to fall apart.

Is this like becoming a werewolf where the only way to rid yourself of the curse is to give it somebody else? Because I've heard reports of Correll Buckhalter skulking swiftly away from Tubbs' condo.
