The Seahawks don’t have much to show for Sunday’s loss vs the Packers. That doesn’t mean there weren’t any standout performances, though. No one had a better game than Jamal Adams, the $70 million man.
The Seahawks loss at Lambeau Field appears to be a fine capsulation of their season so far. The offense can’t move the ball consistently, and the defense wears down by the end of the game. Seattle has yet to win the time-of-possession battle in a single game this season. That’s a subject worthy of a deeper examination, though. For now, let’s look for the little things to celebrate.
Rasheem Green had a pair of quarterback hits and the Seahawks only sack of the day. Jordyn Brooks continued his improvement, leading the Hawks with 13 total tackles, 10 of those solo shots.
At least one player did well for Seahawks in week 10
Cornerback Tre Brown is rapidly establishing that yes, secondary players named Tre can play great defense. Notice how all the players with good grades were on defense? I may have to revisit my earlier criticism of Ken Norton Jr. after all.
But no one stood out more in this contest than Jamal Adams. He played what was quite likely his best game since joining the Seahawks in 2020. As mentioned in my pick for overachiever of the game, Adams had his first interception of the season against the Pack’s Kaaron Rodgers. That was only the third interception of Adams’ career, so he isn’t exactly a ballhawk. Although he is a Seahawk, which is infinitely better, albeit a terrible dad joke.
Okay, sorry; back to the Prez. Adams also broke up a pass, got two quarterback hits, and finished the game with 11 combined tackles. This is the player the Seahawks decided was worth $70. He looked like he was worth every penny of that last year. This year, it’s been tougher to justify the salary and the draft capital it took to get him. But today, number 33 was en fuego, as the cool kids used to say. it’s hard to believe that it took 10 weeks to write this; game MVP, Jamal Adams.
