Wilson completed over 70% of his passes to nine different receivers and scored two touchdowns. Lynch rushed for over 100 yards and a TD. Calvin Johnson was held to just three receptions. Had it not been for an incredible performance by Titus Young (raise your hand if you thought he was capable of 9 catches for 100 yards and two TDs), this would have been a win for the Seahawks.
I'd much rather this one had ended differently (man, if only Wilson and Rice could have connected on that long pass behind the safeties) but overall this was an improvement from last week's loss to the 49ers. Do your worst in the comments below.
In what felt an awful lot like a repeat of the Week 4 game against the Falcons, the Seahawks lost but managed to get their offense back on track after a terrible start with Whitehurst under center. Coverage on special teams is still a concern, and the offensive line struggled all game, but there were plenty of positives, too. Richard Sherman played much better than anyone could have expected a fifth-round rookie CB to play in his first NFL start, intercepting one pass and batting down another into the waiting arms of Kam Chancellor. On offense, there is no longer any doubt who the starting QB should be — Tarvaris Jackson is the unquestioned leader of this offense, and his leadership and command of the no-huddle was impressive.
Still, I’m starting to get tired of writing these “yes we lost, BUT…” comments post-game. This team needs to start winning, and that begins with getting the offense rolling in the first half, not just the second. And with that, I’ll turn the thread over to you guys.
