Seahawks preseason report card, the early edition
Standout individuals include the usual suspects, mostly
Russell Wilson – is it good journalistic practice to write wow? Just, wow. His three game stats are…shall we say, delectable? Or do you prefer delightful?

Gee, not too bad for the 139th best player in the NFL. My brain is still injured by the after-affects of that story, if you were wondering. Of course we don’t want Wilson throwing 40 times a game, but considering he was going against the Vikings and the Chiefs in those last two games, not too shabby. By the way, his passer ratings against those teams were 147.0 and 120.5, respectively. The Vikings were fifth in the league in opponent passer rating last year, the Chiefs were fourth. They were also fifth and sixth in the league in points allowed in 2016. So yeah, they’re both good. Too bad all Seattle could throw at them was the 11th best quarterback in the league, right?
As previously noted by virtually the entire staff of 12thManRising, Chris Carson looks good. Thankfully, Eddie Lacy showed signs of life in his legs against the Chiefs. He may just earn those Hulk Mode sales after all. As for Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise, let’s hope that they’ve been held out as precautionary measures as Pete Carroll said. So far, they’ve combined for three carries and eight yards. When you’re still spelling out the numbers for stats, that’s only a good sign for sacks and interceptions, not for carries and yards.
Seahawks receivers looking pretty catchy
Both Kasen Williams and Tanner McEvoy look good this preseason. Williams started strong, McEvoy has been steady. They both made strong arguments to make the final roster. Veteran Jermaine Kearse reestablished himself in the Chiefs game, despite Dan Fouts blaming for taking a bad angle that allowed the kickoff return touchdown. As if the first two players didn’t miss Thomas. Dang, Fouts is bad at his job. Anyway…my only worry among the receiving corps is third round pick Amara Darboh. He’s only been targeted three times so he’s had limited opportunities due to minor injuries. In the NFL, things like bruised sternums and concussions are minor. Regardless, Darboh has to show something against the Raiders. Not that he’ll get cut, not as a third round pick, but…come on. You’re a Michigan Man!
