RENTON — Sunday’s blowout loss to the New York Giants came with a price for at least two Seattle Seahawks.
Cornerback Kelly Jennings and wide receiver Billy McMullen appear unlikely to start Sunday’s game against Green Bay.
“We’ve talked to the players, and my point of emphasis was that they try not to take those things personally,” coach Mike Holmgren said. “As disappointed as (they) might be, it’s our job to try and win the football games and put the best group out there. And you kind of have to earn that every week. And so that’s why we did a couple of things.”
Jennings, who will be replaced by Josh Wilson, said that he understood the decision.
“I feel like I have a job to do on the defense, and right now I don’t feel like I’m getting it done,” said Jennings, who gave up a long touchdown on the Giants’ first drive Sunday. “It’s a coaches’ decision, and if I was a coach, I would do it the same way. For me personally, I can only try to get better. I can only do what I can do.”
Koren Robinson is likely to replace McMullen in the starting lineup.
