#1 Bears 24 Seahawks 17: Winners and Losers following von chenyan94 09.01.2019 02:15

a disappointing defeat in Chicago Despite bad offensive and defensive play against the Denver Broncos in Week 1 Authentic J.R. Sweezy Jersey , the Seattle Seahawks offense had a chance to win the game late. They didnít.Despite bad offensive play against the Chicago Bears in Week 2, the Seahawks offense still had a chance to at least tie the game. They didnít.Winning on the road is tough. Self-destructing repeatedly makes it 1000x harder to win whether youíre on the road or at home. Only 11% of teams have made the playoffs in the current playoff format after starting 0-2. The 2015 Seahawks were one of them, and although the offense finished #1 in DVOA that year, they were pretty awful up until November. I am not so confident the 2018 Seahawks can replicate the 2015 squadís second-half surge. Itís more than reasonable to suggest the second-half surge of 2015 was an outlier in a sea of mediocrity. Here are the Winners and Losers as the Seahawks are still in search of their first win of the entire 2018 calendar. WinnersShaquill GriffinWhat ball skills shown by Shaquill! A lovely adjustment on the underthrown pass to Allen Robinson for his first interception, and then he caught a tip-drill for his next pick. He only had one interception last year, and he managed two on Monday night, plus he largely shut down whoever he was covering. Griffin kept everything in front of him and prevented major gains out of Robinson, wrapping up immediately on numerous occasions. This is hugely encouraging. Shaquill looks like heís developing into a star.The Seahawks defense as a collective groupMychal Kendricks picked up a sack off a blitz and Austin Calitro didnít embarrass himself in there. With no Bobby Wagner or K.J. Wright, they fared much better than Iíd expected, along with the rest of the group. The defensive line held the rushing game of the Bears to just 86 yards, with Jordan Howard only getting 35 on 14 carries. Akeem King got beaten for a touchdown and had a holding penalty on the first drive, but that was about as bad as it got. Seattleís defense held the Bears to only 17 points, which is a major credit to them.Will DisslyThe greatest tight end in NFL history caught his second touchdown of the season, albeit in glorified garbage time, and seems to be a real threat on seam passes, as he was on a 34-yard catch. All hail Will Dissly!Tyler LockettMuch like Dissly, two weeks in a row with a touchdown reception, and this one was a beauty in tight coverage against Kyle Fuller. It briefly got the Seahawks back into the mix before the pick-6. Lockett finished the game with 5 catches for 60 yards and the aforementioned score. He has to be consistently viable, especially with his new contract, and this is a good start.Sebastian JanikowskiHeís still got the leg! After missing a field goal last week (and unofficially two), Seabass kicked it dead-center from 56 yards, and made both of his PATs. In a week in which multiple lost jobs due to missed kicks, this was a welcome sight from the large lad.LosersRussell WilsonI was hesitant to put him in the ďLosersĒ column last week because he made enough chunk plays that kept the Seahawks in it against the Broncos. Itís hard to defend what just happened on Monday. 22/36 for 226 yards, 2 touchdowns and 2 turnovers honestly flatters him. Six sacks suggests another offensive line horror show, and thatís partially true Youth Sebastian Janikowski Jersey , but Wilson is hesitant to throw, double clutching, scrambling into sacks, and not wanting to throw the ball away. These are drive killers. His interception was a totally inexcusable staredown of Rashaad Penny that at best would gain minimal yards and at worst result in a turnover. The main narrative for Wilson detractors has long been that he cannot win unless his defense is elite. Well this defense isnít elite, but they gave the offense a chance to win, so itís up to the offense ó read: Wilson ó to step up and deliver. They have won exactly one game in which the opposition scored more than 18 points since the start of last season. I largely think this is a Pete Carroll issue (more on that later), given the style he wants is not conducive to winning higher scoring games, but Wilson is a mess right now. No Doug Baldwin hurts, but some of the flaws from last year are prevalent in 2018. Iím more than worried about what heís become, or perhaps more accurately, what heís failed to become. Offensive LineYou can lament the running game being underutilized, but Seahawks running backs combined for 57 yards on 19 attempts. That doesnít mean go the entire 3rd quarter without running like was inexplicably planned, but the o-line is not helping matters when the rushing attack is just as anemic as weíve seen over the previous two seasons. This actually bothered me more than the six sacks, as I really donít want D.J. Flukerís missed presence as the main difference in run-blocking.Brian SchottenheimerHe has no feel for playcalling. They dialed up quick passes to start the 2nd half and they couldnít have been more predictable. Bevellian, if you will. Rollouts were minimal yet again. The non-two-minute drill uptempo offense didnít make an appearance until they were down 17-3, and thatís when Schottenheimer suddenly decided to run the ball. This continued even when down 24-10 with only one timeout, much to my amazement. I wanted John DeFilippo as the OC, given Schottyís spotty track record and DeFilippoís work with a very well-crafted Eagles offense. Itís early days, but I think we know why Schottenheimer was despised by other teamsí fans.Timeout ManagementI hate hate hate hate hate that the Seahawks spend week after week lining up with under ten seconds in the play clock and inevitably burn a timeout. They did this again in the 3rd quarter when a delay of game wouldíve only yielded 2 yards. Then a second timeout was burned on a 1st down play with plenty of time on the play clock for reasons I do not know. How is this still a problem in year seven of the Wilson era? This offense is so damn slow in every way imaginable. You canít be this ill-prepared this frequently.Tre MaddenThe next good block Tre Madden makes is the first one Iíve seen. His presence on the roster is puzzling, then again, the head coach tries to win with an NFL offense better suited for 1998, not 2018. Pete CarrollItís an adapt-or-die league. Carroll is choosing death by a thousand paper cuts. He is dead set on winning his way and not adjusting for anything else. Itís not that his philosophy is atrocious! It got the Seahawks a pair of Super Bowl appearances, a Super Bowl win, several 10-win seasons, and a truly enjoyable fun as a fan. But the best in the business donít try and go back to what used to work http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-barkevious-mingo-jersey , which is exactly what Carroll seems to want. The way this roster has been managed and molded leads me to think this way.We are seven years into Russell Wilsonís career and the Seahawks have a single win on the road out of 19 tries when allowing 24 points or more. Only the Buffalo Bills have a worse success rate, having failed to win any of their 22 games. You gotta be able to get victories out of your comfort zone, and rarely has Seattle prevailed because the offense bailed out a really poor defensive showing, as opposed to the other way around. How is Seattle still like this with one of the top QBs in the league?Carroll doesnít seem to realize he doesnít have the talent to win games the way he did in 2012 or 2013. Itís time for the offense to take that next step and instead theyíre jogging backwards. Pete is the greatest head coach in franchise history, but itís very justified to question if Seattle can really contend again with him at the helm. The difference between Seattleís archaic offense, which at this point Iím certain is Carrollís preference, and what the Bears, Chiefs, Rams, and other teams are running is staggering, and I am convinced that itís hindered Russell Wilsonís development. Final NotesRashaad Penny got 30 yards on 10 carries and looked better than he did last game, although he had a bad drop in the opening quarter. I wish heíd keep his feet better, as heís still struggling with his balance.Chris Carson evidently didnít get a second-half carry due to exhaustion by being on special teams duty. That... is weird.That forward progress call that robbed the Seahawks of a fumble recovery (only for Shaquill Griffin to get his second INT on the next play) was total nonsense. Earl Thomas punchout happened again and the refs decided not to play along. Props to Barkevious Mingo for sniffing out that Mitch Trubisky option play, denying Jordan Howard a third-down conversion in short yardage. Ollie Connolly is right: The Monday Night Football crew needs work. Jason Witten in particular is not ready for primetime. I do have a soft spot for Joe Tessitore though given his work on ESPN boxing coverage over the years. Heís certainly better than Sean McDonough, who essentially admitted he hated his job.Michael Dickson dropkicked a kickoff. That was cool.The season is essentially over if Seattle loses at home to the Dallas Cowboys. No ifs, ands, or buts. And if they do drop to 0-3, you have to wonder if those crazy predictions of a 4-12 or 5-11 year might actually be accurate. Wright and Wagner should be back. The defense should be better. Itís on the offense to get unstuck. Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is sticking around through the 2021 season after signing a three-year contract extension.Carroll said he was first approached about an extension last week and finished the deal on Monday. The contract will take him through his 70th birthday in September 2021.Carroll is in his ninth season as Seattle's coach and clinched his seventh playoff berth with Sunday's victory over Kansas City. He is 97-59-1 overall in his tenure and led Seattle to a pair of Super Bowl appearances, winning the franchise's only championship after the 2013 season.There was some question about the direction of the franchise following the death of owner Paul Allen in October, but Carroll says he "in great shape" and is appreciative of how he's been treated by the organization since his arrival."The organization has been exceedingly good to me throughout the whole time we've been here and they have continued to take that position and I couldn't be happier," Carroll said.Carroll is the franchise leader in victories and had only two losing seasons in his time with the Seahawks 鈥?they went 7-9 in his first two years. His longevity with the Seahawks contrasts with his first stints as an NFL head coach when he lasted one season as the New York Jets coach in 1994 and three seasons with New England before being let go after the 1999 season.This season was supposed to be the start of a rebuild for Seattle, but Carroll's team has been ahead of schedule and will be back in the playoffs after missing the postseason a year ago."It feels like we are just getting started," Carroll said.
