Overall offense was terrible
While Seattle’s backs didn’t really have a chance to do much against such atrocious blocking by the offensive line, Alex Collins made a huge mistake by not tucking the ball away on a catch in the second quarter when Seattle was actually driving for once. Collins had the ball punched out and Washington recovered. The next time Seattle got any kind of driving going was the last drive of the fourth quarter. Seattle’s running backs finished with a combined 17 yards on a combined 10 carries.
Wide receivers/tight ends
Once again, the receivers went like this: Tyler Lockett good and nearly everyone else non-productive. Even Lockett doesn’t catch many passes but seems to make the most of them and finds holes in the middle-deep that no one else can. This includes DK Metcalf who has just become invisible over the last three games. Take away Lockett and the rest of the receivers combined for 4 catches for 55 yards (32 yards came on the Seahawks final play of the last drive).
Still, Wilson not targeting Metcalf until the second half either shows Metcalf doesn’t know how to get open or Wilson can’t find him. That needs to be fixed immediately for this season and for the future success of the franchise.
At least Gerald Everett is playing a bit better as the season goes on at tight end. Everett finished with 5 catches and a great grab for a first half touchdown. He has 16 receptions combined in the last three games.
The line is bad. Period. While Seattle got 34 yards rushing, this is misleading. 12 yards came on a Wilson scramble up the middle. Take that away and Seattle gained 22 yards on 11 carries. Wilson got sacked twice (one was completely his fault on the final drive of the game when a high school quarterback would have known to throw the ball away yet Wilson did not) but he got hit 10 times. That’s too many. Pete Carroll said post-game that he thought the pass blocking was good. That statement alone might be a fireable offense.
