Seahawks at Rams: 5 takeaways from Seattle’s ugly loss
By Keith Myers
Seahawks at Rams: What an ugly and terrible loss for the Seattle Seahawks. There is very little to be happy about, especially on offense.
It is easy to be frustrated with the Seattle Seahawks right now. There 9-3 loss to the LA Rams was difficult to watch in a lot of ways.
In fact, Dan already went on an amazing rant about the game. I’m sure he’s enjoying an adult beverage right now trying to calm himself down. I’m trying to be more reserved and logical about the loss, but it is easy to be unhappy about the team’s performance.
Here are my 5 takeaways from today’s game:
1. Wilson’s ankle hurting him more than team says
Wilson had decent stats overall today. He threw the ball well, and connected on a few long passes when the team needed a spark.
The problems for Wilson today were more than just the pass rush. His ankle was causing him genuine problems, and not just when he wanted to scramble.
Wilson’s throwing mechanics were off because he didn’t have his normally solid base. He couldn’t drive off his back foot. Wilson’s his in-pocket footwork has become solid, but it simply wasn’t there today.
Instead, Wilson was arm-throwing a lot of his throws, and his accuracy suffered for it. There were a couple of passes that sailed on him, and a couple of others that were thrown too low.
This simply wasn’t the magical Wilson we’re used to. (He was still pretty good though)
