Seattle Seahawks Week 2: The good news and the bad news

Sing it with me along with the sounds of Led Zeppelin, "Good times/bad times/But at least the Seahawks won."

See, I told you there was good news for the Seahawks

Let's start with the secondary, shall we? Yes, they gave up too many big plays, it's true. On the other hand, they also came up with some big stops. With the game tied 7-7, Detroit went for it on fourth and four.

Devon Witherspoon came up with the big stop, knocking the ball away from tight end Sam LaPorta. Spoon was the rookie who got burned on the flea flicker, and he did get flagged for pass interference, but overall, he played a solid game.

The star of the secondary, though, was Tre Brown. After a less-than-stellar performance in week one, Brown seemed to make it his personal mission to win this game. And basically, he did just that. He collected one of Seattle's two sacks on the day and contributed a touchdown on a 40-yard pick-six as well. As poorly as he played last week, he was terrific in this game.

As for that Seahawks pass rush, they finally rushed the quarterback After doing literally nothing versus the Rams in week one, they got some pressure on Goff with six QB hits and two sacks. Yes, one was courtesy of Tre Brown, but Dre'Mont Jones had the other. Jarran Reed had a pair of hits as well. It wasn't exactly the world-beating performance I had predicted for this group, but it was a huge improvement over week one.
