    As a Battlehawks fan there was a lot not to like about this game. And it started the first time St. Louis had the ball. On 3rd and short I really questioned AJ McCarron throwing a deep sideline pass in the direction of H. Butler when three yards were needed to keep the drive alive. All and all I did not think AJ played a great game mentally perhaps because he was playing in front of his hometown teams and was pressing. And after his ankle was rolled upon things got worse. After LB Chris Garrett made a terrific play blocking a punt giving the Battlehawks a late chance AJ did several things which I’m sure left most fans shaking their heads! Trying to run on 2nd down with the clock running instead of throwing the ball away. And then needing to spike the ball on 3rd down to stop the clock. Then on 4th down trying to get the ball to J. Pearson who apparently left his game in Seattle! He has gone from looking like the fastest on the field in every game to some small guy who looks no faster than the guys covering him.
