Default Watching the Seahawks..

Watching the Seahawks play.. this is a "slightly above average" team. They have skill but lack consistency.

Basicly.. Seattle is what we have been saying we are.. a good team that hasnt learned how to win week in and week out.

But looking at them play.. they are alot better than us. It is something that I have been seeing alot of teams do that we are not doing. We lack confidence on offense. Even with our great receiving corps, we do not have enough targets. I think it is really going to boil down to two things.. we gotta have a running game, and Carr has got to get faster at going through his progressions and spreading the ball around. he was doing good earlier this year but the whole offense has slowed down as the year has gone on.

We need a TE... badly.


Anyway.. just watching this monday night game has led me to the conclusion that we are not yet ready to be a good team.. we still have some growing to do. More patience is in order.

The Seahawks are in the bunch of mediocrity that the Texans are just entering...they are not a good football team and are only slightly better than the texans.

To me the Seahawks look like a real poor mans (I mean Poor mans) Colts or not so poor Chiefs. Lots of offensive talent, but defense can't stop anyone. I know J. Jones from the cowboys is a solid back but a 200 yard in a game back, I don't think so.

We could have a winning record if we were in their division. As a matter of fact, I think we're scheduled to play the NFC West next year.

The O Line was opening holes a train could have run thru and he made several quick moves to evade tacklers. He is very quick. The guy runs very hard.

I'm not saying that he doesn't have talent, but that was a real poor defensive effort last night. How many times did Winstrom take the easy inside route, and lose his contain by not staying in his area.

you guys need a great running back to make your offense more balanced. if you can get a great running back that has that "breakaway threat", then defenses are forced to respect that and it will open your whole offense up even more. that, and you all seem to need some more talent on the offensive line still. I'm sure they'll address that in the draft.

What is a "real pro defensive effort"? A good effort? I'm not understanding what you mean...if you are saying POOR and that JJ just did well because they played poorly I disagree.
