This one hurt. I wasn't terribly happy with several calls in the game, but there weren't nearly enough questionable ones to explain away ten accepted penalties — the Seahawks simply regressed in that department.
Despite that problem, the team played well enough to win on both offense and special teams (Washington's return TD was fantastic to watch, and how good was Russell Wilson and his receivers?), but were let down once again on defense. The number of big runs they're giving up in the middle of the line is a major concern. I'd have to watch the All-22 film to confirm this, but it looked to me like Bobby Wagner is charging forward too soon and getting lost in the wash instead of hanging back and filling whichever hole the ballcarrier ends up choosing once he gets to the line.
I'm also thinking about writing a letter to the Vatican nominating Leroy Hill as the patron saint of blown coverages. Vent your frustrations in the comment thread below.
