Found October 01, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:
Russell Wilson had a rough go of it in Seattle’s 19-13 Week 4 loss to the Rams, completing 17-of-25 passes for just 160 yards, zero touchdowns and three interceptions.  Wilson was under constant pressure, Wilson was routinely flushed from the pocket, but only one of his three interceptions was his fault. Doug Baldwin let the ball get ripped out of his hands late in the second quarter, while TE Anthony McCoy slipped on Wilson’s game-sealing pick with 1:00 remaining. Wilson’s third INT came on a ball he shouldn’t have thrown as he was getting hit. As it is, the Seahawks appeared to be taking off the training wheels early in the first half, frequently letting Wilson roll out on play action. They reined him back in once it became clear it would be a tight game, however. With the Seahawks admittedly not letting Wilson open things up, he’s currently on pace for only 2,376 yards, 16 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.  Today Pete Carroll said that Matt Flynn is still trying to figure out the ...

Seattle Seahawks: Week 5 NFL Power Rankings (#17)

Last week: 17 (+0) As they always do, the Seahawks fell flat on the road last week. Now there are calls for Russell Wilson’s job after his 3 pick performance (none of which were ruled touchdowns strangely) just a few weeks after he was the media darling who “beat the odds.” They’ve got a great defense and they’re great at home, but their offense isn’t very good and they...

The State of the Passing Game

Through three weeks of play, the Seahawks have showcased an impressive number of top-flight abilities.  One of the stoutest run defenses in the league?  Check.  An intimidating, physical secondary?  Check.  Great special teams play regardless of whether they’re on the giving or receiving end of things?  Check.  A pile-driver of a run game?  You better believe that’s a...
