Hawks Playbook Podcast Episode 29 – Seahawks Make Winning Hard

Open:  By almost all accounts, the 49ers are terrible, but the game much harder to put away than was to be expected. Maybe the Seahawks offense is THAT bad. 

Featured Segment: Seahawks Win Despite our Below Than Average Offense

Keys to the game:

Wilson completed 23-of-39 passes for 198 yards with one TD. He ran 12 times for 34 yards in the game. 

Wilson’s touchdown to Richardson came after Richardson had badly dislocated a finger.

The Seahawks defense kept them in the game with stellar pass defense. Brian Hoyer completed 15-of-27 passes for 99 yards. 

6 drops, including two TDs and a critical 3rd down, kept the offense from gaining both rhythm and separation in this game. 

Chris Carson carries the ball 20 times for 93 yards. Eddy Lacy was a healthy scratch and Thomas Rawls was limited to 5 carries.  Carson is the present and future featured back for the Seahawks.

Chris Carson has averaged 2.6 yards per rush after contact through two games. Lacy and Rawls have combined to carry it 10 times for 7 yards.

Featured Segment 2:

The Tennessee Titans are 1-1 on the year after beating the Jaguars 37-16. Derrick Henry has emerged as their lead back after picking up 92 yards against the Jags. But of course, the main headline generating player for the Titans is QB Marcus Mariota. 

The focus is all on the Seattle offense this week. Can the Seattle Seahawks move the ball consistently against an average NFL Defense? The Titan’s look beatable, but on the road, with our struggling offense, our defense may have to step up and win the day.
