Seahawks are on the decline.

And it's preseason.


It will be fun to watch.

My only question, which quarter will the Seahawks have a huge punt return?

We seem to give them up to everybody.

Cut it out. The returns happen with reserves in the game on special teams. That shit didnt happen when the starting special teams guys were on the field.

This is a solid team Ian. With three noteworthy exceptions. Oline, Turnovers and Punt coverage.

Any can end up killing us.

Jacksonville got all their points off of short fields. Once off of a fumble recovery. Once off of a long punt return.
Denver got a TD on a punt return that put them back in the game.

I don't want these things hurting a good team's chances.

So I don't want to see a big return, but it seems to be our MO the last two games.

Again, the big returns happen when you and I are in the game, not the usual gunners, like Marcus sherels. While it can be concerning, i guess, that such returns happen in the preseason, those coverage units are stocked full of guys that are about to get cut.

Let's see if that shit happens in the first half on friday, when our regular special team guys are in the game

That was a 70 yard short field.

We were 3rd in the league for fewest TOs and tied for 12th in TO +/- in 2017, and haven't played a game in 2018. So not sure what you mean by not solid there.

I am absolutely loving this TOP if this is any indicator for the regular season. Rodgers and Brady can't beat you if they're on the bench.

Did not like that FG, on the other hand...better now than later. I'd have liked to go for it but understand why Zim didn't...get the kid a chance to kick one.

Don't forget, we play each other in week 14 so Zim and Carroll won't show as much as they might otherwise. That said, I hope we cover like that in week 14. Wilson can't hurt you if he has no one to throw to.

If the regular season is anything like preseason, we could be seeing lots of blitzing defenses this year.

This is another grain of salt game ... not a lot to be learned on a major level.
But we need the first team offense to score at home.
Not impressed with that drive.
Got a friendly spot on 3rd and the OL is nowhere near gelling.

Yeah, it looks that way. Too bad, I wanted to see more of him tonight. I guess we will just have to wait for the Niners now.

Diggs is going to be incredible this year.

Incredible that we have had the ball for all but 3 plays the first quarter, no turnovers, and still 0-0...if this was a real game, the Seattle D would be sucking wind...
