RE: Giacomini: If you are referring to the block on the sidelines that was called "Personal Foul", I agree 100%. He iniatiated contact inbounds, and Beast Mode was still romping with the ball right next to them. Giacomini's reputation bought that penalty.

 

RE: Wilson throwing the ball away: I am going to give him a pass on that one. Yeah, it does it on a regular basis, but "protect the ball" is drilled into their head. If he was trying to force the ball into tight situations, and getting more picks, that would be his demise. Sometimes, throwing it away, and living to fight another down is the best solution. As he gains confidence and knowledge, he will learn when he can push that issue, and when to not push it. For now, I am "ok" with his tossing it into the 5th row when he has pressure, and no obvious open receiver.

I think that a win is a win is a win, but the offense seemed to sputter all day long. This game should have been out of reach for the Panthers. I think that RW3 is progressing nicely, and a couple of more vertical passes would have not only opened up the running game, but also kept the short passing game chugging along.

As for Giacomini, he needs to realize that he is a "marked man". Much like Rodman in basketball, the officials are talking about your behavior and tendancies before the game. They start the game knowing that they have to keep a close eye on you. You WILL NOT get the benefit of any doubt. Anything CLOSE to a personal foul will be called on you, whereas the same action by another player might not draw the flag. I like his demeanor and snotty attitude, but he needs to know when and how to keep it in check. Seattle cannot continue to shoot themselves in the foot with these drive-killing penalties that they are currently afflicted with.
