Well 12s, your Seattle Seahawks already played this week and we all know how it went down in Denver.
Not to worry, the Hawks are still flying high and with so many moving pieces along the offensive line I’m simply not worried about anything that I saw moving into the second week of preseason. Here are three things I’m looking forward to watching over the next week.
The Hawks were devastated when it comes to depth in the preseason opener, however it wasn’t necessarily something to be too concerned about moving forward. Most of the injuries aren’t major and most should be ready in time for preseason weeks three and four as the Hawks rev it up for the regular season.
Still it would be nice to see a few more familiar faces in the lineup in week 2, just to get an idea of what we are more likely to see. The other key is actually coming out of week 2 of the preseason healthy.
RETURN OF PRYOR
I cannot lie, I am really starting to believe that Pryor could be the backup in Seattle. One would imagine that he and Tarvaris Jackson will split reps this week, moreso than last anyway. Pryor was elusive and fairly accurate down the field on Thursday against the Broncos, threading some nice needles in-between coverage. It ultimately cost them the game when Ricardo Lockette couldn’t come up with one in the end zone but that shouldn’t affect Pryor’s chances.
The Seahawks had their 9-game preseason win streak snapped on Thursday. I don’t see them worrying about the loss as it has no bearing on the outcome of the season and they will see the Broncs in week 3 for the real thing anyway. However, don’t expect San Diego to get a warm reception in Seattle by this group, especially after the beat-down the Chargers put on Dallas in their opener.
