I normally stay away from the media the day of and after a Seahawks loss. This morning I was really bored and decided to read some articles. Mike Sando of ESPN.com, wrote a great article regarding the Seahawks. Here is a few quotes from his article below:
“This defeat, though lopsided, should not shake Seattle fans too much. The offensive line protected Matt Hasselbeck quite well for a second consecutive week. That was the No. 1 revelation after taking a closer look at this performance. Hasselbeck isn’t getting harassed or beaten up. That is why the Seahawks converted most of their third-down chances for a second consecutive week.
The Seattle run defense remained stingy for a second week in a row. The Seahawks’ pass rush wasn’t there at all, but we knew that could be the case, particularly on the road, because Seattle lacks dominant personnel in that area. But I would also blame some of the pass-rush problems on Hasselbeck, the offense and the special teams because the turnovers they committed helped the Broncos run away with the game. And it’s tough to rush the passer effectively when you’re trailing on the scoreboard.”
Wow! I feel really good right now about the Seahawks losing. I only copied a few quotes from the article, so please read the rest.
Let’s open up the blog to some positives from the game yesterday. What did you all like? Is Carroll going to push the team higher after this loss? Have fun!
