On a roll The Seattle Seahawks were home again this week to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. After being a huge favorite, the Seahawks came through with a 45-17 win, going to 3-0 on the season for the second time in team history. After a win like this, it’s nice to celebrate, but it’s time to move forward quickly to focus on the next game. Before we move on, though, I need to hand out some game balls. Offense Russell Wilson I know it’s cliche to give it to the starting quarterback, but Russell Wilson gets the offensive game ball. In just a half of action, he managed to throw for a hair over 200 yards and a whopping touchdowns. This was in 1 half of play. This is still a run-first offense despite what anyone of us may believe. The fact that Russell Wilson’s skills as a field general are already so developed is a big perk to this Seattle coaching staff. A game like this proves that he is the key to a Super Bowl run. Russell Wilson had himself a day against the Jags in 30 minutes of work. Defense Bobby Wagner A lot of people could have won this game ball. In my mind, though, Bobby Wagner stood out above the rest. Like usual, he led the team in tackles with 9, had a tackle for loss, a pass deflection and a big interception that was more impressive-looking than when most wide receivers make catches. After finishing second in both tackles and Defensive Rookie of the Year voting, the stellar sophomore middle linebacker is back on track to have a similar season as last year. And if that’s the case, the middle of the field is in good hands. Special Teams Steven Hauschka Well there was nothing spectacular on special teams this week, but one guy did get A LOT of work: Steven Hauschka. 6 extra points and a 21 yard field goal is definitely a full day’s work in a kicker’s world.
