The Seattle Seahawks are averaging a league-worst 440 passing yards allowed per game.
It is about time they bring in some reinforcements to help solidify the secondary. The Seahawks are allowing the leagues most passing yards per game on defense. Granted, they have gone against 3 very good quarterbacks forced to come from behind. It still doesn’t defend the notion that it appears wide receivers are wide open on just about every play.
Then you take into account the injuries that are mounting, and there are quite a few of them in the secondary. Quinton Dunbar’s knee has been flaring up. Jamal Adams has what Pete Carroll initially diagnosed as a knee sprain. Marquise Blair tore his ACL. Lano Hill is having back issues.
The injuries are mounting. It’s still very early in the season. However, it is a troubling trend. Meanwhile, Tre Flowers and Shaquill Griffin are getting torched by opposing receivers.
The only bright spot I can honestly say is that Ugo Amadi is really playing well. However, the fact that the only bright spot is a situational defensive back is very discouraging.
The Seahawks offensively are firing on all cylinders. Now it is time for the Seahawks defense to wake up. Sometimes the best way to force that is by bringing in a new body. A la Pete Carroll’s M.O. Competition. Competition. Competition.
This article goes over 4 cornerbacks that the Seahawks could look to bring in.
