Rest of the offense had its good moments
The Seahawks don’t have any idea of how to run their offense. They weren’t blown out last night so never needed to go away from the run. But as they have all year, they give up on the run quickly. Seattle run blocks better than it pass blocks so Seattle needs to run more.
On Tuesday, Seattle threw 31 times and ran 19 times. 8 of those runs came on one very impressive drive to open the third quarter that ended in a touchdown. Seattle threw just 3 times on the drive. This means the 31-19 pass-to-run ratio was 28-11 for every other drive. Seattle also averaged 4.2 yards a run but just 3.9 yards per pass. Shane Waldron needs to be fired.
Grade: C (the coaching brings this grade down)
The tight ends? Remember them? They can catch too and not only be blockers. So can the running backs. In fact, the Seahawks tight ends and backs caught 10 of their 11 targets against the Rams. They need to be thrown to more. Of course, this means Wilson was just 7 of 20 when throwing to the receivers. Bad.
How bad is this line when one of the strengths of the line on Tuesday was rookie right tackle Jake Curhan who went undrafted this year? Damien Lewis, very good last year, was called for holding twice. Duane Brown got beat for a sack. One of the biggest issues with this team (once again) is the offensive line. O-lines take time to build cohesion and this line needs to be nearly completely revamped. This means they won’t be good again in 2022 either.
