After a few weeks of training camp and scrimmages, the Seattle Seahawks finally got to hit somebody else.
In week one of the preseason, we saw the Seahawks travel to Pittsburgh to take on a Steelers team that is also trying to find out who their next quarterback will be.
In a surprisingly entertaining game, we learned a great deal about these Seahawks, but also discovered a few more questions along the way.
Notes from the Nest: Seahawks Preseason Week One
- Call me bitter, but I still get so pissed every time I watch the Seahawks play the Steelers. I don’t know if anyone else feels the same way I do, but I just can’t watch these two teams play without thinking about Super Bowl XL.
- Sorry to bring up a very tough moment in Seahawks history, but it’s drilled in the old noggin.
- Alright, back to the game…But like seriously, the Seahawks win that game without that funny business, Walter Jones deserved that title.
- Okay, I’m letting it go (I’m not)
Ugly opening drive
- The opening drive in Pittsburgh left much to be desired for this fast defense we’ve heard so much about.
- The pass rush was forcing Mitch Trubisky to make quick decisions, but the coverage in the secondary was non-existent. Soft coverage, missed tackles, and miscommunication led a lightning-quick touchdown drive.
- It’s as early as it can get in the season, but it was some of the same old defense we’ve seen over the past few years in Seattle.
