Seahawks vs Cowboys: 5 Takeaways from Seattle’s win
By Keith Myers
The Seattle Seahawks beat the Dallas Cowboys 27-17 in the dress rehearsal for the regular season. The starters saw plenty of action, and it resulted in mostly good things.
The third preseason game is always the most important one for the starters of the Seattle Seahawks. They typically play the entire first half, and then one series into the second half. It makes a solid glimpse into what the team will look like in the regular season.
Overall, there were a lot of good things for Seahawks fans to focus on. The performance was far from perfect, but the team is starting to come together nicely.
Here are my five biggest takeaways from tonight’s win:
1. Christine Michael is finally ready for his breakout year
We’ve been waiting for this. The uber-talented by incredibly immature running back has finally grown up. For the third-straight week, he’s looked like a guy that deserves touches once the regular season begins.
I keep getting asked from guys outside of Seattle if Michael is going to become the starter and be like Marshawn Lynch was for fantasy football. Honestly, I just don’t know how to answer that.
This is Seattle, and the “always compete” mantra holds. If the coaches think CMike is the best runner, then he’ll get the most carries.
I just don’t think anyone should count out Thomas Rawls. The kid led the NFL in yards per carry last season. Once he’s fully healthy, betting against Rawls in any competition is a bad idea.
