ST. LOUIS — Seahawks safety Earl Thomas was asked if he was surprised if the Rams' fumble at the end of Seattle's 28-26 loss wasn't reviewed. It looked as if Sherman had recovered the fumble initially, but the Rams' retained possession and ran out the clock.
During an appearance on NFL GameDay First this morning on the NFL Network, former Seahawk Michael Robinson confirmed the reported fight the night before the Super Bowl between Percy Harvin and Golden Tate, as well as talked about lots of other issues related to that situation.
Seattle receiver Doug Baldwin was the face of Seattle's frustration last Sunday following a 30-23 loss, with pointed comments about the offense and the need of the team to "stop BS-ing ourselves.''
Here is a sampling of what Seattle players had to say after the loss today to St. Louis:
Aaron Rodgers throws three touchdown passes and Packers build 35-3 lead before winning 38-17.
Here is the official transcript of what St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher and Seattle coach Pete Carroll said after today's 28-26 Rams' win:
Ishikawa’s 3-run home run in Game 5 of the NLCS put the San Francisco Giants into the World Series. He also made the game-winning play in Federal Way’s state title game in 2001.
Here are three impressions of Seattle's 28-26 loss to St. Louis Sunday from beat reporters Jayson Jenks and Bob Condotta.
The Seahawks continued to close the gap in the fourth quarter as Russell Wilson continued to make things happen. On a third-and-nine at the Seattle 23, Wilson managed to get away down the left sideline and break off a 52-yard run (watch video here). It was the longest run ever by a Seahawks quarterb
The Seahawks were hoping to emphasize the running game after trading Percy Harvin, but the team was left scrambling when fullback Derrick Coleman broke his feet in pregame warm-ups.

Here's the ballot I submitted this weekend for The Associated Press' Top 25 poll:
A bad start got worse for the Seahawks when the Rams completely fooled them on a punt return halfway through the second quarter. Seattle, struggling to get much going after an opening drive that netted a field goal, punted the ball away from the Seattle 49. The Rams acted as if the ball was drifting
Bob Condotta: You can't question the fight or the effort. But this is simply a different team than a year ago and there were too many breakdowns at key times, many by players in new roles, or simply new players period.
The Rams struck again on special teams, this time running a fake punt deep in their own territory that resulted with punter Johnny Hekker, a Redmond native and a former quarterback at Bothell, completing an 18-yard pass on fourth-and-three to allow the Rams to keep the ball (watch video here).
A league source confirmed that the Seahawks will receive a 2015 draft pick for Harvin — a sixth-rounder if he is cut by the Jets after the season, a fourth-rounder if he remains on the roster.
The Seahawks suffered two significant injuries in St. Louis Sunday.
The Seahawks got themselves back in the game late in the third quarter with a 12-play, 84-yard drive that featured some clutch passing by Russell Wilson and culminated with a 19-yard run around right end by the Seattle quarterback with 4:22 left in the period (watch video here).
In his regular weekly segment on the Seahawks' pre-game show, general manager John Schneider said the trade of Percy Harvin was "the appropriate move at the appropriate time.''
