Quarterbacks Seattle: Despite being content with short passes (6.5 yards per his eleven completions), Matt Flynn showed quick release and awareness of both sides of the flat. After going 8-for-8, Flynn had a pass snagged over the middle by an unseen Colin McCarthy. Flynn’s only other true mistake was taking his eyes off a shotgun snap, resulting in a 10-yard loss after the fumble. Russell Wilson is frighteningly good at keeping plays alive by escaping the pocket, and his quick release is something to behold. The touchdown pass to Braylon Edwards reminded me of Doug Flutie, given it’s a smaller player with such a snap to his release.   Tennessee: Matt Hasselbeck’s first pick was merely a freak play, but the second was badly thrown into double coverage. Jake Locker demonstrated good pocket presence, despite a line that struggled all night, and made quality, unhesitant throws.

Seattle Seahawks 2013 Franchise Tag Candidates

DT Alan Branch Largely a bust in the early part of his career in Arizona, as a 2007 2nd round pick, the Seahawks got the most out of Branch last season, as he ranked as ProFootballFocus’ 5th rated defensive tackle as primarily a run stuffer. However, while the defensive tackle franchise tag is relatively inexpensive (7.9 million in 2012), it’s unlikely the Seahawks would give...

No certainty for Titans QBs

Jake Locker > Matt Hasselbeck

I might be top 10 this season Juan… Hass looked sh*tty in with the starters going 5 for 9 with 2 interceptions.  Locker and the offense started slow, but then he looked sharp as hell with 5 straight completions, with 3 going to rookie Kendall Wright.  I have had a man crush on Locker all Summer and he has stayed at 15 in my rankings due to his immense upside.  He looked the...
