No, we didn’t get the end result we wished Sunday. However coming into this season, each one in every of us could be thrilled to see the Seahawks at 6-4 at this level.
I’m not about to say that I’m thrilled with the Seahawks efficiency in Munich. At the very least not with the primary 50-odd minutes. The run protection was horrible and by no means acquired higher. The Hawks personal operating sport by no means acquired going, both. I imply, the offensive rookie of the month wound up with simply 17 yards on 10 carries. Kenneth Walker III will bounce again, and so will this group.
Talking of bouncing again, Geno Smith may have folded after he fumbled away the Seahawks prime probability to shut the hole to 4 factors. Simply as he did within the Hawks win over the Cardinals, Smith cinched up his protect – sure, that’s a Cap reference – and went to work. Sadly, the protection couldn’t do their half, however not less than the offense got here to life.
Seahawks have laid a profitable basis
Now I utterly agree that celebrating a 7-3 Seahawks group with our Belgian waffles and Bloody Marys would have been much more enjoyable than seeing our guys take their fourth loss. To place it in perspective, how painful was the loss to the Niners again in September? The Hawks (and the 12s) had been using excessive after the opening win over Russell Wilson’s Broncos. Driving – get it? Anyway, the subsequent few weeks had been fairly depressing.
After which Clint Hurtt’s protection began placing it collectively. Possibly they had been too aggressive initially, however they’ve performed significantly better over the previous month. In all probability has loads to do with the Hawks lastly beginning Ryan Neal over Josh Jones, however that’s one other story. They disappeared versus the Bucs – particularly versus the run – however there’s no purpose to suppose they gained’t bounce again.
What issues is that the Seahawks didn’t fold. They practically got here all the way in which again after doing just about nothing for nearly all the sport. Most websites projected the Seahawks win ceiling at seven video games, and the ground at 4. And right here they’re at six wins, with their subsequent three video games versus groups which might be a mixed 8-20. I like our probabilities; don’t you?
