Would you rather watch the Seahawks offense or discuss Alaskan Way Viaduct options?
Would you rather watch the Seahawks offense or pick at a scab until it bleeds?
Would you rather watch the Seahawks offense or get a chest wax?
The offense? Yes, opponents know that the Seahawks are little threat to score, so that there are little to no implications for going for it and not getting the first. 3 and out for the Hawks and they get the ball right back. The same goes for trick plays. Sad but true.

As written about in prior posts, the offense is only is good as the offensive line, and at this point in the season one could argue that it is the worst line in the league. That said, it can only get better right? Pittsburgh is going to be a huge test next week. Yikes.
The defense was stout against the run and looked good in coverage against the pass. SF isn't exactly an offensive juggernaut given the limited playbook they used, so the jury is still out here. The pass rush was horrible, it needs to improve especially when playing teams that do not run the ball every time on 3rd and 8.
What can be said about special teams? I know Ben Obomanu was starting at receiver due to Sidney Rice's injury, but he is probably the Hawks best special-teamer on the active roster (Roy Lewis is on the PUP). The punt and kick coverage was suspect from the start, so lets hope this issue can get fixed in a hurry. Last year kick coverage was a bright spot, this year they looked like the San Diego Chargers special teams unit. Ugh.
I was planning on re-watching the game for some in-depth analysis, but I don't think I can take watching it a second time. Once was enough.

I hope that overall talent and depth has improved and that is why these three are not Seahawks. It looks like the defense could be in the middle third in the league this year which would be a vast improvement.
A key for defensive success this year will be how much time they are on the field. The offense needs to be competitive in time of possession to give the defense a fighting chance. It all begins today.
Hawk and Roll!

If these guys can't play together, then let's watch these five play together.

Three rookie free agents make the 53 as well as Brandon Browner who is from the CFL. This speaks to the team's willingness to embrace youth and keep the best talent possible. Jeron Johnson beating out Mark Legree is a prime example.
Last year the Hawks kept five LBs, this year seven. As the roster shuffles, I would expect a line backer or two to be vulnerable.
It will be interesting to see how active the front office is over the next couple days. Last year they picked up Raheem Brock off the scrap heap. Maybe they will find another diamond in the rough?

The Raiders ran at will against the Hawks last year. Let's hope the defense proves more stout upfront.
Tampa cut a MLB and a DE today. I wonder if either (or both) get a look from JS. One thing we know, this team will always try to improve overall talent.

|Beware of the Turk.|
1) Safety. Last year the team carried 4. Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor are locks as the starters. That leaves 5th round draft pick Mark Legree battling for a spot with Atari Bigby, Jeron Johnson and Josh Pickard. I haven't seen Legree on the field much, so I would guess he is offerred a spot on the practice squad. Bigby offers game experience which the others do not. It is a very young group overall which helps Bigby's chances.
2) Wide Receiver. They kept 6 last year. Rice, Williams, and Obomano are the first three on the field. 4th rounder Kris Durham has a spot too. That leaves 2 spots and a host of guys. My guess is Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin. Burner Ricardo Lockette to the practice squad. Deon Butler on the PUP. I don't see how Husky Isaiah Stanback makes the 53.
3) Defensive Line. There is a logjam here with 15 players and only 9 roster spots likely. Chris Clemons, Red Bryant, Alan Branch, Brandon Mebane, Raheem Brock are on the team. That leaves 4 spots up for grabs. These 5 have the inside track: Junior Siavii, Jimmy Wilkerson, Ryan Sims, Pep Levingston and Clinton McDonald. I don't think Dexter Davis of Jameson Konz are going to make it. Pierre Allen to the practice squad. Colin Cole on the PUP.
