Offensive Futility: Time of Possession

The Seahawks have done a couple of things well… I assume. They’ve also done plenty of things poorly. The one we’re going to focus on today is known as “offense,” specifically our time of possession (or lack thereof).

In 2008, the Seahawks were the worst in the league for time of possession averaging just 26:37 per game. We covered that here in early July, and gave a prescription for fixing it. Well, we failed to do anything substantial to remedy the situation — though, not a huge surprise as Greg Knapp’s Oakland Raiders were also pretty bad with 28:01.

This year, the Hawks are a little better with 27:16. That’s good for 30th in the league with only the Bills (27:05) and the Raiders (26:34). Well, at least we’re in good company? Here are the Hawks TOP stats per game…
