SEATTLE -- The Seahawks talked about opening up their offense, but no one figured Seneca Wallace and a cast of backups would provide the longest play from scrimmage in Seahawks history. It happened on the Seahawks' first offensive play against the Eagles.

Koren Robinson's 90-yard touchdown reception marked the longest play from scrimmage for the Seahawks and their longest pass play since Robinson's 83-yarder against the Rams in 2002.

Owen Schmitt, starting at fullback for the injured Leonard Weaver, picked up the blitz to let Wallace lob a pass to a wide-open Robinson. Safety Brian Dawkins slipped in coverage.

Qwest Field is very much alive after the fast start. The defense has been active. We'll see if it lasts, but Seattle is playing with a great deal of energy.
