3. Seattle’s offensive line is a dumpster fire

The Bears had no sacks in either of their two games coming into this week. They sacked Wilson 4 times. He was hit on a bunch of other plays as well. This unit is completely incompetent.

Poor pass blocking has been common since Tom Cable took over as the offensive line coach, but this is a whole new level of awful. Wilson cannot even throw a quick slant without getting crushed.

Wilson ended up with 6 carries for 26 yards, and none of those were designed QB runs. All other yards came when Wilson was running for his life.

One of the best plays of the day came when Wilson made two separate pass rusher miss and then found Jimmy Graham for first down. Graham was open the entire time, but Wilson had no chance to get the ball off until making those two players miss.

Oddly, the run blocking was much improved this week. Lack week the pass blocking was decent, but the run blocking was atrocious. Apparently this unit cannot be good at both at the same time.

It is time for Tom Cable to get this fixed. If he can’t, then perhaps Seattle should find someone who can.
