College football draft notes 18/09

— From early in the summer, I’ve been saying the 2022 quarterback class is a disaster. Draft media was regularly mocking the likes of Spencer Rattler and Sam Howell as top-10 picks. I never saw it. Howell looks like a fairly standard mid-round pick with little improv or mobility and Rattler simply isn’t ready.

Week one was a classic example of Rattler’s problems. He has the tools — arm strength, escapability and the ability to throw from different angles. Some of the stuff he does is Mahomes-esque. He’s creative — moving and re-setting, launching the ball with velocity from different angles.

However, he’s so unrefined as a quarterback. People are claiming on twitter today he’s regressing. He isn’t. His problems in 2021 existed last year too.

Against Tulane he threw two picks and it should’ve been three. Rattler trusts his tools too much. He throws into coverage and doesn’t anticipate situations. He was at it again today against Nebraska. He launched a pass into triple coverage and was fortunate the pick was dropped.

He doesn’t read plays or manipulate defensive backs. If the play is called, he’s throwing it. When he scrambles, he’ll take a chance. And at the next level he’s going to be a turnover machine unless things change.

On this evidence he isn’t ready for the pro’s and needs more time in college to work on his craft. It’s hard to imagine him going any earlier than round two based on what we’re seeing.

You’ll also see Nevada’s Carson Strong being mocked in round one at the moment as draft media desperately scrambles for a golden goose. Strong isn’t good enough. His arm strength and talent is overrated. For me he looks like a day three quarterback. Malik Willis at Liberty is exciting to watch but has significant technical flaws and is probably best suited going somewhere without the pressure to start immediately.

Ole Miss’ Matt Corral benefits from a well schemed offense run by Lane Kiffin which is, to be fair, prolific and user friendly. The talk of Corral elevating into a top draft pick is painful to observe. It says a lot about draft media, to be honest. It’s so thirsty for a big name QB to promote and rally behind for 2022.

At the moment I’m not sure you can justify projecting any quarterback in round one. So what does this mean? It means a huge market for Deshaun Watson, Aaron Rodgers and any other quarterbacks available for trade in the off-season. Houston drafted a quarterback this year, Green Bay drafted one in 2020. They wisely prepared for the transition because neither team will likely find a replacement next April.

The trade market for veteran QB’s next year will be red hot.

— On top of the 2022 being light at quarterback, there’s also a real lack of legit top-tier talent. Kayvon Thibodeaux and Derek Stingley will go early. Aidan Hutchinson will go earlier than many think. Kyle Hamilton is becoming a ball-magnet and by adding turnovers to his game, could easily work his way into being a high pick. There’s not a lot to get excited about though if you follow a team destined to pick early next year.

— It’s pretty clear the NFL is desperate at cornerback, across the board. It’s becoming such a need position, it’s reminiscent of the offensive tackle crisis that dogged the league. Don’t be surprised if a whole bunch of corners stack behind Derek Stingley.

— We highlighted Kenneth Walker (RB, Michigan State) a couple of weeks ago and he had another standout performance today. Walker rushed for 172 yards on 27 carries, while adding 17 yards and a touchdown as a receiver. He’s 5-10 and 210lbs and a Wake Forest transfer. He’s a tough, physical runner who’s difficult to bring down. He’s definitely a player to keep an eye on.

— I’ve watched Notre Dame running back Kyren Williams twice this year. He’s slippery, dynamic and tough to stop when he gets going. He lacks the size Seattle looks for in a running back and he might be too small for the next level — but he’s fun to watch and a dual threat. He had 91 yards on 12 carries against Purdue, with two catches for 47 yards and a touchdown.

— Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum is very athletic, can pull with ease and progresses to the second level superbly. I suspect, however, he might last well into round two due to a lack of power at the point of contact and you can drive him backwards. Of course, if he has a Senior Bowl and combine performance like Garrett Bradbury, all bets are off. Oregon center Alex Forsyth lacks the athleticism of Linderbaum but he’s Mr. Consistency and a player to monitor.

— This is going to be a much better draft for tight ends. Jalen Wydermyer has had a quiet start at Texas A&M but has the talent. Wisconsin’s Jake Ferguson has a complete game, as does Ohio State’s Jeremy Ruckert. Iowa’s Sam Laporta is someone I want to watch more of. Today he had a career high seven catches for 65 yards and a comfortable redzone touchdown. For all of Washington’s struggles, Cade Otton has a future at the next level. He had a touchdown against Arkansas State. I’m looking forward to seeing what Greg Dulcich will do for UCLA tonight (along with running back Zach Charbonnet).

— Two pass rushers have flashed that are worth monitoring. One is Florida State’s Jermaine Johnson — lumbered on a hopeless team after transferring from Georgia. He’s playing with great effort and quickness and is making an impression at FSU. He led the team in tackles against Wake Forest, shared a sack and had a QB hurry. The other is USC’s Drake Jackson who had a wonderful sack/fumble. He’s 6-4 and 255lbs and showed great speed attacking the edge against Washington State.

— Somehow, Georgia’s massive defensive tackle Jordan Davis remains underrated. He’s 6-6 and 340lbs but he knifes through gaps like a man 50lbs lighter than he is. As you’d expect, he can stack blockers and control the interior. He’s a tremendous player who will test better than anyone expects. He helped force a safety today. He’s a freakish athlete. I’m not sure how early he’ll go but he’s a terrific pro-prospect. For me he’s a first round talent. Meanwhile, Georgia linebacker Channing Tindall looks really quick and physical. He stood out in the first half against South Carolina. At SPARQ he ran a 4.19 short shuttle and jumped a 40 inch vertical. For Georgia’s opponents, receiver Josh Vann showcased big play ability downfield plus the ability to high-point and compete for the ball. Vann scored a superb touchdown, creating great separation. He looks like the next impressive wide out to enter the league from South Carolina. Vann is definitely a player to have on your radar.

— I’m not sure Fresno State quarterback Jake Haener has the physical qualities (6-1, 195lbs) to excel at the next level but he was sensational in an upset win against UCLA — playing with an injury to lead an improbable last-gasp game-winning drive. The Bruins have been highly entertaining this season so far but using Zach Charbonnet for just six carries in this game is a major head-scratcher. He scored on a third of those carries. His two touchdowns were typically impressive — dragging defenders for yards-after-contact to get into the end zone. Tight End Greg Dulcich went without a catch or a serious look in the passing game. You’ve got to make the most of your talented players.

— I really like Arkansas safety Jalen Catalon. He led Arkansas for tackles against Georgia Southern and broke up two passes. He’s a terrific redshirt sophomore and the heartbeat of the Arkansas defense. Another defensive back to watch for is cornerback Montaric Brown. He’s 6-0 and 190lbs, plays well in run support and could be a nice project.

— He might not have the hype of his brother but Taulia Tagovailoa is a really fun player to watch at Maryland. He’s led them to a 3-0 start and he flashes a lot of talent. He finished with 32/43 passing for 350 yards and a touchdown in a close 20-17 victory over Illinois (adding 25 yards as a runner). He won’t go in the same range as Tua but he’s a player worth following this year.

— Alabama running back Brian Robinson, a senior, is one to keep an eye on. He’s 6-1 and 225lbs and will get plenty of opportunities to impress this season in the SEC. He stood out against Florida with 75 yards on 14 carries. Robinson scored twice (once as a receiver). He has talent and could be a value option in the draft.

— I watched several games this weekend. Please, ESPN, we get it. The Manning brothers are doing an alternative MNF football broadcast this season. We don’t need to be reminded literally every five minutes during college football Saturday.

    Jordan Davis is a beast. He looks fantastic week after week. He has been the most impressive guy outside Zach Charbonnett for me. The Michigan D has some guys to monitor. Agree on the lack of CBs. Even the normal DB factory’s like the Ohio States of the world lack a true dude outside Stingley

  2. Palatypus

    Really liked what we saw out of Vann today.

    I’m curious that with Drake Jackson, is Seattle really ready to spend another three years developing a USC pass rusher?

    • Rob Staton

      Probably not 😂

      Vann looked terrific

  3. McZ

    What about Jake Haener? Leeds Fresno State to a near upset vs Oregon and now washes UCLA.

    • Rob Staton

      Looked superb. Just watched the game. Kudos to him.

  4. McZ

    Brennan Armstrong got 554yds passing with substandard OL, and a bunch of no name receivers vs NC. He is still a junior, but I think he belongs into consideration.

    Sean Clifford is this years measured game manager type of QB and will fly up the boards, once this traits becomes clearer. He had a 87% completion percentage vs Auburn and all stats are pointing up. The Ohio St game will be vital.

  5. Paul Cook

    The thing about Rattler, like you said, is he does have a somewhat unique arm talent. He can make all kinds of throws that most QB’s just don’t possess the natural kinesthetic talent to do so. That’s a gift. He’s just neither a real good decision maker yet, nor has he yet matured into the kind of confident-in-his-skin field general persona that both Mayfield and Murray embodied in spades nearing the end of their college careers.

    I hold out hope for him still, however, because he’s got the natural talent, and you never know when that light bulb might suddenly click brightly on. He’s certainly got about the best QB coach you could want to have at the college level in Riley. The guy really loves football, and you can see that when the defense makes great plays and he responds like their biggest cheerleader on the sidelines.

    He’ll likely go pro. But I’d be willing to bet that he’d be a real good pro prospect if he stayed another year in college. But the money’s too great for such a thing to realistically happen. My partner is a Sooner, so I’m of course hoping he’ll suddenly click into uber gear and lead them to another national championship, especially with my Huskies in the dumps at present. LOL

    Nice thoughts perspectives and always nice to be better exposed to the individual talent out there that you’re seeing and taking notice of.

  6. Sea Mode

    Jim’s right, we haven’t mentioned Lucas in over a year. And his build looks incredible.

    Also, I didn’t know DK’s dad is scouting for the Sr. Bowl…

    https://mobile.twitter.com/JimNagy_SB/status/1439312150539952136

    • Palatypus

      I’ll be on the lookout for him.

  7. Sea Mode

    This might actually be the most beautiful INT ever! Wow!

    https://youtu.be/EhI6BbkFR74

    • Henry Taylor

      Freaking awesome. Bit of a shame it was on 4th down

  8. Henry Taylor

    Nkemdiche elevated from the practice squad.

    • Palatypus

      Derrick Henry is in town.

      • Mick

        Well we’ve been talking all last season about how good our run D is, now we got to prove it. Would be quite something to have Carson with more yards than Henry today.

        • Palatypus

          Either way, there will be a long line for the defensive linemen to the ice bath.

  9. Big Mike

    Chip Kelly does some strange stuff as a coach. Why Charbonnett doesn’t get at least 15 carries a game is beyond me. I guess the good news is that whatever pro team gets him will have a guy with low mileage.

  10. Isaac

    Rob you spend so much time breaking down players while they are in college. I would love to see a new series with let’s say 15 players who were blog favorites. Let’s say 4 years after that draft. Kind of a where are they now. Why did or didn’t they work out with the teams that drafted them. Plus add the hawks draft class from that year. Curtis Allen would be a great person for this write up.

  11. Palatypus

    Per Adam Shefter:

    “La’el Collins will begin serving his five-game suspension Sunday, but the Dallas Cowboys right tackle is appealing the ban and said he hopes the facts of his case lead the NFL to overturn its decision.

    Collins missed multiple drug tests, according to sources, but he also believes there are valid reasons for almost each missed test.”

    Has anyone ever came up with a poor excuse for missing multiple drug tests?

    https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/32233258/sources-lael-collins-suspension-appeal-cites-excused-absences-missed-drug-tests

  12. Rob Staton

    Piece here on Richard Sherman. Seems like he’s intent on playing this year:

    https://www.nfl.com/news/multiple-teams-calling-on-free-agent-cb-richard-sherman-who-expects-to-play-in-2

    • Palatypus

      Magnetic therapy? Maybe if he was drinking Russell Wilson’s Smart Water he wouldn’t be in this situation.

      Oh and Tom Brady and Richard Sherman on the same team?

      You mad bro?

    • Sea Mode

      Hmmm, I’m just not sure. As desperate as we are, he’s likely going to miss games again due to injury at some point and at any moment after the legal matters are resolved, the league could decide to hand down a 3 game suspension for the DUI. Might just be better to give Brown and Jones some real game experience.

  13. Rob Staton

    Just a reminder that as well as the instant reaction article later, we’ll be doing an instant reaction live stream. I’ll be joined by Robbie & Adam today.

    Jeff Simmons will join me for a stream on Wednesday to reflect on weeks 1&2 and Robbie and I will also do our usual week 3 preview stream.

  14. Palatypus

    Randy Moss just threw the Vince Lombardi trophy in a river. Turns out it floats.

    • Rob Staton

      Good to know

      • Palatypus

        In the event of a water bourne landing, it could save your life.

  15. Paul Cook

    Too bad that we didn’t get Nantz and Romo for our game today. They’re doing the damn Cowboys/Chargers game instead.

    • Big Mike

      F**k the cowboys

  16. Rob Staton

    The Colts are a joke

    • Sea Mode

      I can’t figure out the Saints. Blow out the Packers last week, now down 17-0 to the Panthers approaching halftime.

      • cha

        Maybe spent their powder last week. A lot of energy relocating and trying to be a positive distraction for the local community.

    • Ashish

      Carson throwing that shovel pass for interception at goal line… He is far better than that. Colt better try new QB

    • Jordan

      Yep. Reich and Wentz are infuriating. They should be decently ahead.

      SF’s play calling and QB are trash.

  17. 206

    Panthers looking nice in the first half, eagles look pretty good, miami bad, and how bout them TEXANS

    • Mick

      The Raiders have the funniest OL, couple of yards to endzone turns into 20 yds of penalty.

  18. 206

    If the bucs sign Sherm I’m going to be livid

    • Jordan

      Really thought Abram would be, at worst, a half decent pro.

  19. Ashish

    Looking how colts oline performing we should lower our expectations from our DL.

    • Blitzy the Clown

      They’re going against one of the best DLs in the NFL, and the best defender in the NFL on that DL group.

      Having said that, Davenport is hot garbage out there. Probably the worst back to back performances at both OT spots in memory.

  20. Rob Staton

    Ah yes, Damien Harris

    The Rams with Stafford look beatable, but it would require some good play and tight cornerback coverage.

    • AlaskaHawk

      What timing , ha ha. The Colts score an easy touchdown off of a bad punt snap into the Rams own blockers.

  25. cha

    Robbie, did you get that Colts banner put up in your house at halftime?!

    WOW!

  26. Blitzy the Clown

    This Rams-Colts game just got interesting… 👀

  27. Rob Staton

    Nick Chubb is so good

    Sigh.

    • Blitzy the Clown

      What Rob? Don’t you just love the irony of Seattle passing on Chubb because they were scared off by his knee injury, only to draft someone who they thought was the healthiest, but who can’t stay on the field?

      Yeah, me neither.

    • Sea Mode

      Don’t even start. I can’t…

    • Poli

      You really wanted Kittle as well, but the Hawks took Tedric Thompson 🙁

      So which was the bigger loss, Kittle or Chubb?

      • Rob Staton

        Well let’s just put all of them in a big box from over the years and dream a dream…

  28. Kyle

    The Rams look vulnerable to the run this game. Would like to really attack them with different runs and motions than we have in the past when we play them.

  29. AlaskaHawk

    I’ve been a huge Stafford fan from playing fantasy football and having both him and his best receivers = 20 years ago. He is past his prime but still good.

  30. Mick

    Cmon Colts, still enough time for a winning TD.

    • pdway

      man, what a break the Rams get – colts starting QB can’t make it out for the game-tying drive. The back-up QB….predictably throws a pick….

  31. Blitzy the Clown

    What a play by Darius Leonard!

    This Colts team reminds me a lot of the Seahawks from the last few season: better on paper than on the field, so any game can be either seriously rewarding or seriously frustrating (even if it’s a win).

  32. Blitzy the Clown

    But of course, Jacob Eason. 🙄

  33. Sea Mode

    Brady Henderson
    @BradyHenderson
    ·21m

    On his @710ESPNSeattle hit, GM John Schneider tells
    @RaibleKIRO7 that the Seahawks are playing it smart by de-activating DT Bryan Mone in the hopes of getting him back next week. Schneider said Mone played through a triceps injury in the opener.

    Robert Nkemdiche is up off the practice squad with Mone out today. Schneider likened Nkemdiche — a 2016 first-round pick who was out of football last season — to Michael Bennett in how aggressively he shoots gaps and gets up-field. “You’re going to see him be disruptive.”

  34. Sea Mode

    Holy cow, is today national QB injury day or something? Dropping like flies. Be careful out there, Russ!

  35. Big Mike

    I wonder if anyone that plays the rams is ever going to figure out that Cooper Kupp makes their passing game go and actually cover the guy?

  36. pdway

    I think what the early results show – is that we don’t really know who’s good after a single week…Rams could easily have lost to the Colts, and Niners to Eagles, Saints crush the Pack last week, and then lose handily to Carolina.

    All of which is to say, I don’t really have a feel for how our game is gonna go today.

  37. Big Mike

    Rain supposed to stay away for the duration this afternoon.

  38. AlaskaHawk

    Russell passing deep to Lockett is Like a lightening bolt falling from Heaven.

  39. cha

    Worst feeling in the NFL: RW playing your team and he takes two steps in the pocket and winds up to throw.

    • Big Mike

      It’s the statistics they put up after the completion about 40 plus yard completions and touchdowns back you up

  40. Big Mike

    He had Tyler for the touchdown and I know that’s not an easy throw but it is one he has hit more than once in his career.

  41. Kyle

    God Flowers just gets burned all the time. Every time the ball is thrown his way I just assume it’s a catch and first down.

    • pdway

      he remains THE weak link on the starting unit, either side of the ball for us.

      • Kyle

        That and Center are my biggest concern or worries

  42. AlaskaHawk

    I’m not liking the long drives from Tennessee. Seahawks need a stop.

  43. OP_Chillin

    Almost no pressure on Tannehill. Took six sacks last week.

    • Mick

      The run D looks just awesome so far. If only we had stronger CBs…

  44. pdway

    that’s great man coverage by Reed there.

  45. Rob Staton

    Doesn’t sound very loud on TV

    Was expecting it to be nuts after last year

    • Bmseattle

      Clearly vaccinated people arent as loud as unvaccinated.

      • Palatypus

        No, they’re just obnoxious.

        • Norman

          Can we moderate obnoxious comments like this?

  46. OP_Chillin

    Intermediate middle passing game is still missing. Short stuff and obviously the deep ball is there, but it’s not sustainable as we saw last year.

    • J.P.

      This team looks toast on both sides.

  47. Mick

    Carson must deliver more than 2 ypc.

  48. Rob Staton

    Need to see a replay but kind of feel like DK needs to make that catch on third down.

    • Rob Staton

      Offense has been poor apart from that one play

  49. OP_Chillin

    Screens? Intermediate digs/seams? Anything new?

  50. dand393

    Wtf is wrong with metcalf he’s such a diva

    • Big Mike

      Tired of his crap

    • Mick

      I’d keep him on the bench for a quarter.

  51. OP_Chillin

    Twitter film guys saying MoF players are open and Russ won’t hit them. Hard to tell based on what I’ve seen but if that’s the case there’s no obvious solution.

    • Matt

      Most Twitter film guys are worthless. They don’t know the progressions, etc. easy to freeze frame and do the “hey look he’s open” routine. Yep

    • Big Mike

      Every time the O struggles that’s what’s said. Sometimes people just aren’t open.

      • OP_Chillin

        I mean I’ve seen it repeatedly when I watch the All-22 with Russ so it wouldn’t surprise me.

  52. pdway

    O-line getting beat consistently. Where are the quick passes to the TE and some screens? Need to get some rhytym. We were so crisp last week. A slog so far other than the deep throw.

  53. Big Mike

    Fuller beat and his man sacked Russ. Don’t need a Center in this offense tho.

  54. Matt

    We went from everything looks easy (last week) back to everything looks difficult. Very frustrating.

  55. cha

    No pressure on Tannehill on D

    Nibble or bomb on O

    This isn’t working.

  56. Big Mike

    Guess who’s (not) covering?

    • Mick

      Terrible.

    • pdway

      god i’m so sick of his uselessness

  57. Kyle

    This is on the offense for not applying scoring pressure. They should have 10-14 by now if they could get out of their own way.

  58. Bmseattle

    I think we are officially better on the road than at home.

    • UkAlex6674

      Let’s wait until the 60 are up before we say that!

  59. Big Mike

    Jamal Adams has now blitzed 3 times and come nowhere near the QB

    • Big Mike

      But Bobby Has 🙂

    • AlaskaHawk

      Wagner picking up the slack, he was so smooth.

      • Mick

        Yey Bobby, that’s the way to do it!

  60. OP_Chillin

    Well-schemed and executed blitz. Time for the offense to answer.

  61. James P Kupihea Jr

    It only took two weeks, but we’re finally back to REAL Seahawks football!

    Offense looking like #%(#$, playing like %@#@, and Tre Flowers is still employed…

  62. OP_Chillin

    That’s a very nice touch pass

  63. AlaskaHawk

    Yes, Mr. Dependable Tyler Lockett. Russ has been a bit slow and short on the long ball, but it worked out this time.

  64. Mick

    Great pass by Russ, but boy is Tyler hard to stop!

    • Bmseattle

      A lot of the “Russ throws the best deep ball” narrative is due to Lockett and his amazing ability to find the ball in the air.

  65. pdway

    at least Russ still looks very sharp. love the rhythm drives even more, but i’ll take that score – we needed something to spark us.

  66. Big Mike

    Someone picked up a blitz on Russ’ right side that gave him the time to complete that. Subtle things that make plays happen.

    • Kyle

      This why I want them to focus on T and C in the draft….make that line a strength and nasty

  67. Kyle

    Robinson nice HIT!!

  68. cha

    Backfield took away the first read – just enough for Alton to get home!

    • pdway

      hell yeah!!!

    • Gohawks5151

      Alton really had something. Intuitive rusher.

    • Big Mike

      Yep, again subtle stuff that makes things happen.

    • Kyle

      It’s almost like someone said to take Tannahill’s first read away would be a key to the game 😉

      • Big Mike

        🤔
        👍

      • cha

        😃

  69. Blitzy the Clown

    Alton Robinson saying, hey what about me?!?

  70. AlaskaHawk

    The character of this game changed quickly! And can the refs stop with the unsportsman like penalties after a TD?

    • Big Mike

      This crew is looking poor. Can’t even get things straight. Not a good look.

  71. OP_Chillin

    They sucked rushing against PA passes last season. Excellent job with multiple guys getting past their blocks on that one.

  72. Big Mike

    Are all 100 of Julio’s yds against Flowers?

    • Mick

      I think so but Flowers had the best offseason ever 🙂

  73. pdway

    i know it’s beating a dead horse at this point – – but can we give sidney jones a try?

    Flowers plays such soft coverage, always so far away from the receiver…

  74. cha

    Hey Jamal – stop jogging towards the QB.

    What was that?

    • Big Mike

      “Business decision”?

      • pdway

        what business decision…he got his guarantee.

        i’ve refrained from much criticism of JA, but I’m watching this game and thinking, are we sure Adams is better than Diggs?

        • Big Mike

          I’m sure my opinion is that he’s not worth what we’re paying him

          • pdway

            i know, i’m still giving it more time, but he needs to have a much bigger impact on a game to be getting that kind of money.

  75. Big Mike

    This D series has been shit and they get the ball to start the 2nd half. 🙁

    • Kyle

      The smart play here for Tenn is to “double dip” here and run the clock down and score then get the ball first in the second half.

  76. Big Mike

    Brooks didn’t do any worse than Flowers there

  77. Kyle

    The only thing worse than Flowers on Julio is a LB on Julio.

  78. Mick

    Did he have control before he stepped out?

  79. Big Mike

    Not sure I agree but I’ll take it

    • AlaskaHawk

      Seahawks got a break there, though it was a heck of an almost catch.

  80. pdway

    still a great catch by Julio. He may still be the best player on the field.

  81. downtownjewelrybryan

    angry doug the toe tap jedi upstairs with a big smile

  82. Mick

    This is the right speed, we score.

  83. Bmseattle

    No TE targets today, right?

    • cha

      None yet.

  84. Mick

    Woo Collins

  85. pdway

    this drive is a joy to watch…..

    such great precision

  86. AlaskaHawk

    They got enough timeouts for two runs and a pass.

  87. KennyBadger

    Alex Collins fan here. Penny would have sprained an ankle on that play.

    • Ashish

      He did in locker room

  88. pdway

    woohoooooo .. .. that is how you do it….

  89. Kyle

    Now that is a hell of a two minute drill right there!

    • Trevor

      That was a clinic

      • cha

        Take Timeouts?

        No.

        Move the ball and freak the other team’s coach into taking timeouts.

        Scary.

        • Kyle

          So I’m guessing then Pete had no control over the calls or timeouts for it to work that perfectly.

  90. Trevor

    If the Hawks can sure up the Center spot and the rest of the OL stays relatively healthy this offense is going to very hard to slow down.

  91. Mick

    Perfect drive, A+!

  92. Big Mike

    It looked like a lot of those passes were scripted this week based on what they expected defensively. What a thing of beauty.

  93. AlaskaHawk

    All that in 48 seconds? Looks like Russell has been practicing his one minute drill. What a great series. And loved that run by Collins.

    They got Tennessee demoralized and ready to pack for the flight home.

  94. downtownjewelrybryan

    whoa… bellore took his soul

  95. James

    Really good to see them turn a slow start with a few adjustments. Man…get AC more touches.

  96. cha

    At the half:

    Derrick Henry 13 carries for 35 yards. 2.7 avg and no TDs.

    1 catch for 15.

  97. OP_Chillin

    Slow start, strong finish to the half. Let’s snag another 10 points in the next half and close this out.

  98. Katal

    Bad team, bad press conferences, will probably get smashed in the second half.

    • 206

      Troll

    • Kyle

      You know I can handle being a bad team and even getting smashed in the second half….but how dare you say the Seahawks have bad press conferences!!

    • Ukhawk

      Bad post, poor commentary, will defo get smashed in the blog

    • Troy

      Aren’t you the same dumb ass that was trolling Rob months ago? You are such a loser dude, go get a life.

  99. Paul Cook

    We are looking so good these first two games so far. Even a bit of a clunky start to the game was steamrolled by what soon came after.

    Four passes, 30+ yards, 18 seconds! I’m giddy.

  100. pdway

    That Alton sack/fumble changed everything in this game…

  101. Mick

    We stopped Henry completely. They got several times in our redzone and could not get a TD (OK with the somewhat controversial revert). Alton had a sack leading to our TD. I would say great job D. If I were the Titans’ manager I would ask Tannehill to throw to Julio Jones as much as possible, Flowers can’t contain him.

  102. pdway

    I’ve mostly just watched highlights, but the AZ offense looks like it is going to a load to handle this year…

    • Dave1401

      AJ Green/Hopkins on our no.2 corner is going to be a problem…

      • pdway

        their game right now is 31-30 w 8:30 left in the 3rd quarter…

        • James

          If we could see someone else on the left, I’d be more convinced we could handle that.

  103. Pran

    Defense is not up to mark…getting shredded thru air consistently. Plain lucky to have given up 9 only.
    May not be lucky against better teams ..

  104. Troy

    I’m extremely pleasantly surprised by the Seahawks defense. This feels like a complete team. I’m honestly getting super bowl vibes, I know it’s early in the season but the Titans were legit last year, they have some amazing talent on O, and our d is handing them. Our offense is prolific, special teams are legit.

    Of course injuries and other things can happen but I’m not gonna lie, I’m truly hopeful this could be a the season they go far since 2014.

    • James P Kupihea Jr

      I can’t see us being super bowl bound if the massive hole at left corner isn’t addressed promptly.

    • Justaguy

      I don’t see it. The defense is lucky they only gave up 3 field goals in the first half

      • Troy

        The Wagner sack wasn’t luck, that was straight skill. But I’ll grant you they got lucky with that over turn

        • Justaguy

          Point is the defense is not good enough for a Super Bowl run

    • Blitzy the Clown

      They’re better than I expected, especially on the DL. But I think they’re a fair ways away from being a SB caliber defense. They still need at least one blue chip CB (Reed is adequate, and Flowers isn’t really a CB).

      • James

        30 minutes later exposed exactly what we all feared. There’s practically nobody behind Wagner.

  105. Kyle

    I work in a furniture store and we don’t have cushions as big as Flowers gives WR.

    • Big Mike

      Brilliant post

  106. Nathan W.

    Tre Flowers… sigh.

  107. Hawks4life

    Adams needs to put up or shut up

  108. pdway

    this is a test case, if PFF doesn’t give Flowers a terrible coverage grade this week, then their service is not based in reality.

    • Big Mike

      Absolutely 💯

    • Kyle

      It was nice to see Flowers fight off that block by the WR and help on the contain for Henry on that play as well.

    • Mick

      I’d say Brooks should also get a bad coverage grade, so far. And Adams has 0 contribution for the second game in a row.

      • pdway

        that whole drive was annoying. they let that TE get away w getting all in Adams face, and then called unsportsmanlike when we gave it back to him on the next play. didn’t see the Barton hold, but it obviously had nothing to do w the play.

        good run by Henry at the end I guess.

      • James

        Adams brings um… a lot of energy?

    • Pran

      Db guru can’t find a guy with some upside to replace flowers in 3 seasons..

  109. Trevor

    Rondelle Moore is an incredible weapon for the Cardinals. Going to be a star. That Cards offense is going to be a problem.

    • Henry Taylor

      Him going to the Cards was very upsetting to me. Loved that guy

  110. Big Mike

    Troy, disagree. This team’s offense needs to put up points weekly in the upper 20s to mid 30s to win. Defense is below average tho better than last year (not saying much).

  111. Blitzy the Clown

    LJ Collier is responsible for that Henry TD run. He completely blew backside contain, while trailing the play so badly he would’ve been a total nonfactor if Henry hadn’t cut it back.

    I’m done with Collier. He’s absolute garbage. In retrospect I wouldn’t draft him in any round, let alone the first.

    Also, Tre Flowers is not an NFL caliber CB. He might be an NFL caliber safety, but DB whisperer Carroll knows better apparently.

  112. cha

    The DL is not making life uncomfortable for Tannehill. He’s got all kinds of time playing behind 3rd stringers.

    • Big Mike

      Right side of our d-line should be living in their backfield

  113. OP

    Really didn’t look like that was a first down.

  114. Kyle

    God I love to see Metcalf in the open field with the ball in his hands being a bully with his size and speed

  115. Big Mike

    Good thing we took a time out to set up that play. That was horrific

    • cha

      A Seahawks classic.

      Tempo-ing, 3rd and 2 and let the play clock bleed down, time out, poor play, punt.

  116. OP_Chillin

    Corner was playing faaaar off Metcalf on that third down and isolated. 2/7 on third down. Win or lose, that is a concerning trend carrying over from last season

    • Mick

      I was hoping Shane would get TEs involved more in 3rd down situations.

      • Big Mike

        They haven’t even been targeted today, let alone caught anything

  117. cha

    Jordyn Brooks being sent a message? Barton in this series.

    • downtownjewelrybryan

      the message is barton sucks

  118. Big Mike

    Tennessee really shot themselves in the foot on that last yet last 4 down sequence. 1st pass was behind the receiver 2nd pass was dropped and the field goal was wide right the though we did at least get a coverage pressure on 3rd down

  119. Mick

    Great that he missed. We have to put some points on the board now. I’m glad that we found a way to still manage Henry.

    • AlaskaHawk

      It feels more like they just stopped using him after he was so successful in that series. And now they are behind!

  120. Blitzy the Clown

    There’s that good old “bend but don’t break” Seahawks defense. Nice stop for no score on what was an otherwise frustrating defensive series.

  121. Big Mike

    Man we are still an awful screen team

    • Mick

      DK and Adams could be great players if they were less emotional and more intelligent.

  122. Kyle

    Now that is scheming guys open!

  123. Big Mike

    The very definition of a blown coverage

    • pdway

      Iso open I thought Flowers was covering him….

  124. AlaskaHawk

    Nice Touchdown – Go Seahawks!

  125. Mick

    Strong OLine this play.

    • Big Mike

      Yes, good call

  126. Trevor

    Missed FGs seem to always be huge momentum changers in games for some reason.

  127. Big Mike

    Defense has been on the field too long They are not good

  128. cha

    Jamal.

    • Mick

      And Flowers could have done more. Diggs, sorry, loved him today, but Kam would have destroyed Henry there.

      • pdway

        that’s not all on jamal – he’s not calling the blitzes, he also got pushed in the back if you watch the replay.

        Flowers looked like a pop warner guy trying to tackle.

        And then Henry does what he does to Diggs, too fast, even at that size. It’s why he’s special.

        That missed extra point sucks now too.

    • Big Mike

      17 million dollars per year

  129. Hawks4life

    Adam’s has blitzed how many times and done nothing….

    • Big Mike

      17 million dollars per year

  130. Leonardo

    Teams are completely prepared for Jamal Adams blitzing this year. Does he have any other pitches, or are we going to watch Diggs on an island all year while Flowers gets toasted again and again?

    • Hawks4life

      Definitely this

      • Big Mike

        Ditto

  131. 206

    Not happy with adams play at all

    • Matt

      Without him blitzing, he is a mediocre Cover 2 Safety whom we are paying $18.5M for…but yikes

  132. 12th chuck

    wtf is flowers still on the field for. adams is not living up to a hint of his reputation

  133. Blitzy the Clown

    Through the first two games of this season at least, it’s getting hard to deny that Diggs is the top safety on this roster. I don’t care what the other guy’s name is.

  134. Zane

    The color commentator is just insufferable to listen to today

  135. Pran

    Worst D shows up
    Jamal, Barton, flowers, Dline.. what the hell.

  136. pdway

    that’s such a huge play though… b/c this game was just about over.

  137. Pran

    DK is wasting his talent.. extra curriculars need to stop.

  138. Blitzy the Clown

    Not a good game for DK. There’s no excuse for not coming down with that contested catch.

    • Rob Staton

      Three years in and I’m giving up on him ever being a dominant 1v1. He is what he is. An incredible size/speed weapon but not someone who can bully DB’s in contested situations

      • Blitzy the Clown

        I usually cringe a little when he takes a big hit after the catch because I’m just not sure of his grit and I fear a fumble.

    • pdway

      at such a crucial juncture in the game – – was that the high percentage play we needed to avoid a 3 and out?

      Don’t like the call at all….get three yards there.

  139. Scot04

    This game looks so much like last year. Bad defense and hoping Wilson does enough to win the game. We need a stop badly.

    • pdway

      defense looks gassed. 3 and out is a disaster right there. Henry thrives in these situations.

  140. Big Mike

    17 million dollars per year and ZERO splash plays in nearly 2 full games

  141. Leonardo

    I know DK is our “#1” but Lockett is our most indespensible receiver. Can’t imagine our passing game moving without him. And DK has become the archetype of the diva WR. Duane and Russ need to sit him down and tell him he can’t feud with the defense every week.

    • J.P.

      This offense is honestly really ugly outside of those couple of big plays. Same problem I had with Schottenheimer.

  142. cha

    Feels like they’re really missing Mone today.

    • OP_Chillin

      Back to relying on clutch stops, but we’ll surely take it for now

  143. Pran

    2nd half offense is garbage except for one blown coverage play. Offense coundn’t put a drive together that eats clock and scores. Titans offense is just doing that and limiting number of opportunities For Russ.

  144. Blitzy the Clown

    Holy shite Flowers defenses a pass, as opposed to making the tackle after failing to defense the pass.

  145. Big Mike

    Offense will have to win this game

  146. OP_Chillin

    Defense getting smoked. Taunting on top, wow.

  147. Blitzy the Clown

    What a bollux call. Absolutely shite. Referees ruining the product.

  148. James

    Stick a fork in me…I’m done. Coach some discipline into these children.

  149. cha

    One flex from Reed and it’s 15.

    But Jalen Ramsey gets a game-sealing INT and runs the whole field blowing kisses and waving goodbye to the Indy crowd and no laundry.

    • Big Mike

      Good point

    • pdway

      100%.. esp in the 4th quarter of a tight game. apply some situational judgment.

  150. Mike

    Can we please put Sidney Jones in the game he can’t possibly be worse

  151. AlaskaHawk

    Yes to that defensive effort on 4th down. Tennessee should have used Henry, Tannehill doesn’t have the wow factor.

  152. Bmseattle

    How can they not have Henry in the game on 4th and 2?!

    • AlaskaHawk

      I know – it’s stupid. But here is one to ponder, when has Seahawks Alex Collins been used after his big run? Pot meet kettle.

    • pdway

      right – as soon as he’s not in there you KNOW it’s a pass. Makes no sense.

      We do like to live on the edge., Good pressure when we had to have it at least.

  153. Troy

    For everyone calling the defense soft, the D just made a GIGANTIC stand. Watch and enjoy people, I think this season will be special

    • Bmseattle

      Now we need an even giganticker stand

      • Troy

        True lol

    • Rik

      Special good or special bad?

  154. Bmseattle

    Our offensive line is not getting much of push.

  155. Mick

    Was Hyder or Al Woods with the sack?

    • Scot04

      Woods

  156. OP_Chillin

    They’re just so bad on third down.

  157. Blitzy the Clown

    A guy as strong as DK should be able to stretch for that first down.

  158. Big Mike

    That was just junior high level football

    • Big Mike

      I actually I think my junior high team was more disciplined than Seattle is Seattle lose at times

  159. Scot04

    Not feeling comfortable at all.

  160. Pran

    Garbage O to go with D.. What did Shane bring?

  161. Mick

    If they get a 2 point conversion and we lose this game, we beat ourselves with indiscipline.

    • Big Mike

      Absolutely 💯

  162. Big Mike

    So they have a first and 20th actually get the 1st down after running 2 plays brilliant defense

  163. Scot04

    Just feels like a bad loss coming. Hope I’m wrong.

    • Big Mike

      Really does feel like it

      • Big Mike

        And on a day SF and LA won 🙁

        • cha

          AZ too

  164. AlaskaHawk

    This is looking like an over time game, and our defense is sooooo tired.

  165. cha

    Al Woods is gassed

  166. J.P.

    That missed point earlier…

    • Big Mike

      Yep

  167. pdway

    if we blow this it’s on the O as much as the D.

    Two 3 and outs w the game in balance, just like last year.

    • AlaskaHawk

      Agreed.

  168. Mick

    They literally used the same scheme three times in a row. Is it so hard to figure it out?

  169. Pran

    Nothing changed from last season.. Titans are guaranteed 10-15 yards for every catch ..Ken Norton’s promise!

  170. pdway

    also, do your job myers, this all has a different feel if we don’t miss that extra point and are up 8.

  171. AlaskaHawk

    Henry is the sort of running back that the Seahawks need. But maybe between Carson and Collins the Seahawks can put it together into a mega running attack.

  172. Bmseattle

    Every single completion for them is over the middle

  173. Scot04

    I hope they just go for tie

    • Bmseattle

      I’d go for the win

    • Mick

      No way, you got the best RB, you go for 2.

    • AlaskaHawk

      I”m getting a feeling, being a team on the road, they will go for two.

  174. Scot04

    Tennessee 14-0 when Henry rushes for two TDs

  175. OP_Chillin

    Henry flat out dominated the defense. No other way around it. I heard 500+ yards given up, is that right?

  176. Bmseattle

    Wow…I had no confidence we would have stopped them.

  177. OP_Chillin

    Terrible throw Russ, wtf? Wasted a timeout

  178. AlaskaHawk

    Tennessee messed up, barely even got the point after .

    Seahawks are sucking at this quick drill. You got to bat that ball into the ground.

  179. pdway

    offense has gotten stuck…they need to help out their exhausted defense going against hte most dominant back in football.

    I hate this dynamic.

  180. Big Mike

    That doesn’t look good

  181. OP_Chillin

    How many backups was TEN using on their OL? I know they came in with a backup LT, their LG Saffold got hurt in-game, and their Center also got hurt but might have come back since then.

  182. Pran

    Rush 4 yet hit the QB.. nothing changed on O or D from last season.. it’s time for Pete to retire.

  183. AlaskaHawk

    Great, now the offensive line is relying on backups. The offense has sucked in the second half.

    Overtime will be loads of fun when the get a steady dose of Henry shoved down their throats.

    • Noah

      Just what I thought heading into overtime. You could see it from a thousand miles away.

  184. Rik

    What a shitshow of peteball in the 2nd half!

    • Big Mike

      God awful

    • pdway

      everything that worked last week…where are all the quick passes? where is the TE?

      what a frustrating game.

  185. Scot04

    To me the offensive scheme hasn’t looked much different than last year, and the defense looks like it did early last year.

    • Justaguy

      Looks a lot like I predicted on this blog. The new OC is getting exposed and the defense cannot stop a real running back. I predicted a loss today prior to the season. It sucks watching it actually happen

      • pdway

        good for you.

        • Justaguy

          Go fuck off

    • Leonardo

      Completely agreed, we’ve gone right back to throw deep and pray.

  186. AlaskaHawk

    I have to ask why the Seahawks have gone totally away from a running game? Because the line is backups that don’t know the running plays.

    • pdway

      it hasn’t been working either….

      You can keep those 1st down runs that inevitably put us in 3rd and 8. so frustrated. this game should have been 31-16 and over.

  187. GoHawksDani

    What a joke…only 3 decent player in this team: Wilson, Lockett and Wagner…maybe Diggs as a +1. Everyone else played pretty bad, mediocre or just a rotational player who had 1-2 good plays.
    Can we please trade Adams for a 3rd? And Metcalf for a 1st and 3rd maybe? Both overvalued a ton

  188. Rokas

    I had one wish during the offseason, to never see Flowers starting ever again. I mean it’s a joke, he can not cover anything. Anything. I can’t believe we could not replace him.

  189. Big Mike

    We have been out physicaled yet again

    • Mick

      Outcoached too I would say.

      • Big Mike

        Not the 1st time won’t be the last

  190. AlaskaHawk

    Oh great, we are the team that Henry is setting personal records on.

  191. OP_Chillin

    JAMAL WTF man!?!?

  192. Denver Hawker

    Can we get our money back from Jamal?

  193. Big Mike

    2 1st round draft choices a 3rd round draft choice and 17 million dollars a year get you that

  194. GoHawksDani

    And all the penalties…how ridiculous. What did Adams bring to the table in the first 2 games? Maybe 15-20 yards for the opponents? Metcalf is a diva. He can run and has potential, but throwing small tantrums in every game is getting old. He’s not that good (yet)

  195. Pran

    As much as Adam sucked.. that’s a BS call

  196. Blitzy the Clown

    Two first round picks, a third round pick, a starting safety and $18 million per year buys you a defensive series extending, potentially game losing penalty.

  197. OP_Chillin

    3rd and 15. No BS, just get it done.

  198. Denver Hawker

    Bobby is like a fine wine

  199. Kyle

    Now lets F*cking go offense!!!

  200. Big Mike

    Why did I see Carlos Dunlap and coverage twice?

  201. Mick

    No excuses now, time to deliver guys.

  202. Big Mike

    WTF is this shit

  203. OP_Chillin

    Third down, here we come again…

    Wow, that is terrible

  204. Kyle

    Jesus Christ Russell use your damn head!

  205. OP_Chillin

    Great they need 10 yards to win

  206. AlaskaHawk

    What a Sh*t show. What the heck happened to Alex Collins? Russell has been way off on his passes.

  207. Big Mike

    It’s terrible officiating terrible performance by the seahawks terrible game why do I continue to have hope?

    • AlaskaHawk

      I think it’s because no matter how bad the team plays, they somehow make the playoffs in a tough division.

  208. Mick

    It’s hard to believe we can win anything with this mindset.

  209. Pran

    Nothing will ever change under Pete.. that’s guaranteed. They can’t adjust for F sake… worst Titans D is playing like all time best

  210. J.P.

    I’m not impressed with Waldron. It’s like that article spoke of. This offense just feels disjointed right now.

  211. Rik

    Offensive failure. How many times do we have to see this? How many years in a row?

  212. Trevor

    Game / Set / Match for Titans. They deserved the win or at least Derrick Henry did. The Titans offense is what Pete dreams the Hawks could be.

    • AlaskaHawk

      Yep, they made a good move getting Brown and Jones, those are some great receivers to throw to. And of course Henry is such a strong runner.

      • pdway

        Henry really put them on his back the 2nd half. Best back in the league.

    • pdway

      i know our D has given up all these plays…but this one is on our offense. plenty of chances to ice this, or at the very least, give our D some time to rest.

      it’s not like the Titans are some superior defensive force. Incredilby disappointing.

      True but everytime he had the chance PC drafts high upside project guys, burns picks on borderline useless safeties, and when he can draft a running back picks a guy who is as healthy as procise was.

  213. Big Mike

    Terrible horrible loss

    • Trevor

      The Hawks knew they would need to stop Derrick Henry to win the game. They couldn’t and deserved to loose. Jamal Adams was the worst trade in Hawks history and he is the most overpaid player in the league.

  214. Big Mike

    What an absolute joke

  215. OP_Chillin

    That was a horrible performance. Defense crap. Offense is the same and you can’t keep blaming coordinators at this point.

  216. Rowdy

    Russ choke the whole second half away

    • Peter

      Sure but so did the defense and did collins and carson die? I was just following on box scores but sub 70 yards total?

    • McZ

      Said it last week, stand by it this week…

      This Seahawks team has only one way to win… deep bombs from RW, and if you take that away by stacking two deep, you are in business.

  217. Mick

    This one is going to leave deep scars. Complete failure in the O in the second half, if you don’t get first downs you lose the game.

    • pdway

      100%

  218. Leonardo

    One of the worst losses of the Pete/Russ era. Collapsed like a house of cards, no one except Lockett and maybe Bobby can hold their head high. The kind of loss that makes you reassess their ceiling for the season.

  219. Pran

    Rob can copy paste from last season.. nothing to stress much about.

  220. Trevor

    As Denny Green said ” They are who we they thought they are”! This is not a contending team.

  221. Feindt

    What an uninspiring Offensive Performance. No ideas, no disguise, just putting the ball up and hoping to get bailed out by DK or Lockett

  222. Matt

    Season defining loss…this will haunt us in late January; “if only we had a bye in R1,” “if only we had won the West.”

  223. Pran

    Imagine winning one game vs NFC W with this O and D… let’s aim for a Top 5 pick with a new coach and GM

  224. GoHawksDani

    24-9, 30-16…and they lost the damn game.
    Why are they this stupid bad?
    Why do they need to throw THREE TIMES in OT for 15-20 yards?
    You have time, you only need like 50-60 yards or maybe even less for a FG and a W. You don’t need to get those yards in 2-3 plays, you only need 10 yards.
    This team stinks from top to bottom.
    Next year RW will demand a trade and we can see the ship sink slowly. But hey, at least our captain, Pete Carroll will be the last to leave the boat

  225. Bmseattle

    Offense did nothing on the 2and half. Only score was on that blown coverage.

  226. Henry Taylor

    Well that sucks.

  227. downtownjewelrybryan

    finesse team got beat up

  228. Scot04

    Tennessee did everything they could to let us have an easy win. We chose not to take it. Very ugly game where Seattle can’t really take any positives from.
    Does not even look like a playoff team. I predicted 10-7, im worried I might have been too optimistic

    • Peter

      I thought at 24-9 “well now, sesttle gonna finally throttle someone.” Did some ysrd eork and poof! It was all over. How has this team become so freaking mediocre at home?

    • pdway

      yeah, they dropped passes all game.

      We did the same thing, but with penalties.

      I still think it all comes down to our offense needing to make a few first downs in the 4th quarter against a middle-of-the-road defense…and utterly failing. WTF.

      • Scot04

        Lack of DT depth definitely was a factor. No Mone hurt. We’ve been complaining about lack of DT depth since before season started. Today it really showed. Regardless just brutal 2nd half on both sides of the ball.

    • SeattleLifer

      I also pegged 10-7 on the season but that was being hopeful both with injuries and that Waldron could inject some extra life into the offense which remains to be seen if that will be the case and still doesn’t change the fact that Norton is the d-coordinator.

  229. Paul Cook

    I never like to lose. But if there was a game that could be a teachable moment, it was this game, this loss. Sloppy. The self inflicted wounds just kept coming and coming. We took ourselves out of drives on offense, and extended drives for the Titans on defense.

    It’s no shame to have Henry run over us in the second half. That’s what he does to just about everyone. But that dump-over-the-middle-pass over and over again was driving me crazy. We just couldn’t adjust to stop it.

    Anyway, we deserved to lose. Nobody but ourselves to blame.

  230. schrub

    Man. I put this on the two coordinators. More on Waldron as he left the D out there. Complete garbage.

  231. SeattleLifer

    Jamal Adams is a bleeping chump. And I don’t say that because of his roughing the passer. The guy is below average in pass coverage(and terrible if you factor in his elite athleticism and speed), does’nt seem to want much to do with finishing on a number of plays and frequently gets himself and/or teammates out of position with his often mid guided over-eagerness.

    Unless he has an astounding change of play coming up he is just a horrific acquisition from compensation given up in trade to contract being payed to on field play which should be so so much more than what we are seeing for all we’ve put into the player. Just gut turning disgusting.

  232. Martin

    I think we were lucky to be as close as we were. Four key takeaways for me.

    Norton needs to go, (and it’s been obvious for some time). Yes I know it’s Pete’s defence but he must have some critical input.

    Despite the good things he did, – Wilson was too often in the ‘I won’t throw it but instead run around until I get sacked mode’ that he gets into.

    The Seahawks are not good enough to be so poorly disciplined. Offsides, taunting, late hits……

    Apart from Woods – the defensive line was crap.

  233. pdway

    I guess if you’re looking at it from afar, Henry becomes the storyline of the game 35/182/3, it’s like a college football stat line. What other RB in the NFL gets 35 carries?

    You wouldn’t know that we were up 14 (should’ve been 15) in the 4th quarter, and threw the ball all over the place for 3 quarters. Whatever it is w us that makes us freeze up on offense in the 4th, it’s a killer flaw.

  234. Shane

    can someone explain to me the difference at the start of the game? That first three and out kind of set the tone. I saw nothing different/unique to what they did previously. no TE’s utilized when we needed a couple yards etc etc et… ugh

  235. Edgar

    Couldn’t happen to a more idiotic city.
