There wasn’t much to like from the Seahawks today as poor play on both sides of the ball lead to an embarrassing 38-10 loss at the hands of the Green Bay Packers.
The Seattle Seahawks laid a frozen egg in Green Bay today. No, that isn’t a reference to that Disney Princess movie. It was cold, and the Seahawks played terribly on route to a 38-10 blowout loss.
You know that cliche’ about “if you don’t have anything nice to say…” well, lets just get straight to my takeaways from the blowout loss:
1. Where’s the pass rush?
After being in the top 5 in the league in sacks all season, the Seahawks went over 2.5 games without one. Without pressure, Aaron Rodgers picked about Seattle’s coverage.
When the Seahawks did finally get a sack against an injured Rodgers, it was a coverage sack by run-stuffing NT Ahtyba Rubin. Seattle’s trio of pass rushers came up completely empty again.
Michael Bennett, Frank Clark, and Cliff Avril were complete no-shows in this game. When that happens, Seattle’s defense is going to struggle.
