The news continues to get worse for the Seahawks. Currently 1-3 and fresh off a 44-6 throttling at the hands of the Giants, they'll host the Packers on Sunday and there's a good chance they'll do it without Matt Hasselbeck.
The Seattle quarterback missed part of the preseason with a sore back, and he'll be a game-time decision against Green Bay after injuring his knee last weekend. Which means Charlie Frye could get his first start since that forgettable season-opening effort 13 months ago in Cleveland, when he was still considered the Browns' quarterback of the future. Sort of. (Here are the gory details, just in case you, um, forgot.)
Probability suggests Frye would fare better against the Packers than he did against the Steelers last year, but, well, I'm still skeptical. Unfortunately, Seneca Wallace, who started four games in 2006, isn't available, either; he's nursing a sore calf.

On the upside, head coach Mike Holmgren thinks Koren Robinson and Bobby Engram will start. But -- and this probably goes without saying, even though he made a cameo last week -- Deion Branch is listed as questionable. Typically, this means a player has a 50 percent chance of suiting up for the game, but this is Branch we're talking about. He might as well be on injured reserve.
