Well that sucked Seahawks Tom Johnson Jersey , didn’t it? The Los Angeles Chargers are a very good team and a sneaky Super Bowl contender, so this was always going to be a tough game for the Seattle Seahawks to win, but the way they lost it has to irk a lot of people, because they had so many misfires and mistakes that were then combined with awful officiating... and yet they still had a chance to force overtime, and almost did.Almost. That defines the Seahawks right now. This might not be a playoff team given the schedule and the way the NFC has played out through the first-half of the season. They’re almost there, though. This doesn’t look like a team in need of a complete rebuild, and you can see young stars emerging. However, until they prove otherwise, they’re not among the elite teams anymore, but they sure as hell aren’t 4-12 bad like asinine pundits were predicting prior to the season.Let’s look at Winners and Losers from this inauspicious start to November.WinnersBobby Wagner and K.J. WrightWagner is the best defensive player on the team, bar none. 13 tackles, 5 of them solo, and he broke up three passes. Wright also had a pass defensed and a tackle for a loss on a jet sweep (which had killed the Seahawks earlier in the game). Really, they’re the only clear-cut winners on defense, even with Seattle tightening things up in the 2nd half against that talented Charger offense.Nick VannettThat was a great touchdown grab to get the Seahawks back into the game late, and he had 6 catches for 52 yards on the afternoon. He’s no Will Dissly (then again, no one is), but he does seem to be gaining trust from Russell Wilson as a safety valve and asset in the quick-passing game. Last week he had a touchdown taken away from him, as well as a third-down conversion overturned to a drop, but this was better.Michael DicksonAlmost everything else about this special teams unit is below-average to downright bad. Michael Dickson is an exceptional punter, and he averaged 52.8 yards on his six kicks, with four of them pinning the Chargers inside their own 20. I dread to think how this ST group would look with a league-average punter or a declined Jon Ryan booting the ball.Jaron BrownThree of his last four targets have been for touchdowns. He could’ve had another one if Russell Wilson had hit him in stride to start the 3rd quarter, but it didn’t materialize. As the apparent #4 option, he’s emerged as a quality threat in the red zone. I presumably won’t be writing about him for another two weeks, when his next target goes for a TD.LosersRussell WilsonAfter being almost perfect last week, Wilson had a performance that looked alarmingly like some of his form from 2017. He missed easy throws (including the aforementioned Brown play), his timing was off, there were coverage misreads, he took bad coverage sacks, and the pick-six to Desmond King was just inexcusable. Even the Vannett touchdown was a bad decision with a good outcome, as Mike Davis was totally uncovered. 43 dropbacks for only 202 yards is inefficient and downright ugly. This was disappointing all-around and he has to take a lot of responsibility for why the Seahawks offense so often stalled out. If Seattle wants to make the playoffs, Bad Russ can’t show up.Time management (which faults Wilson, Pete Carroll, and Brian Schottenheimer)What the hell was that clock management all about? Wilson makes some shocking decisions in two-minute drill situations, and that end-of-half was unacceptable. They had all three timeouts in LA’s half of the field with a minute to go and somehow blew every timeout and ended up kicking a field goal. Wilson refuses to throw to the sidelines in two-minute/hurry-up offenses, and this is not an isolated incident. On the play preceding the Tyler Lockett end-zone DPI call on the final drive, he checked it down to Mike Davis despite having no timeouts and under 20 seconds to go. WHY?!On the Vannett touchdown drive Seahawks Tyler Lockett Jersey , the Seahawks really did damage to their slim chances of winning with zero lack of urgency. The drive started at 6:38 and they didn’t score until 1:50 left. It took 14 plays to drive 54 yards, and they had three designed rushes! Score on the other side of the two-minute warning and you’re not thinking about an onside kick. That’s a failure on the part of Wilson, plus the philosophy of Peteball/Schottyball. The gameplan seemed to fall apart when Chris Carson went out, and Carroll’s obsession with clock control works against him when having to play from behind. This was my biggest fear of the running game’s revival, which was sticking to “body blows” and “establishing the ground game” even when playing from behind for a majority of the game. We saw this extend well into the 4th quarter for reasons I cannot comprehend. This was horrendous game management that should not be happening with Wilson and Carroll at this stage of their partnership. Points > Clock. Run defenseMelvin Gordon led the way with 113 yards on just 16 carries and a 34-yard touchdown, and the Chargers as a whole had 160 yards on just 22 attempts. The first two jet sweeps to Keenan Allen completely caught the Seahawks out, and the defense had serious issues bringing Gordon down. This was probably not a good day to only have two active defensive tackles, having made Naz Jones and Poona Ford inactive.Tre Flowers and Tedric ThompsonThompson had consecutive missed tackles on Keenan Allen on that 54-yard catch on 3rd and 15, then on the Melvin Gordon touchdown run. Really the biggest problem I have with Thompson isn’t that he’s necessarily a bad tackler, but he takes such poor angles on a consistent basis that make life so much harder for him.Flowers got beaten for two touchdowns, one a brilliant catch by Tyrell Williams, and the other an alleged “touchdown” to Mike Williams that for some reason was allowed to stand. Even the pass break-up Flowers had to deny the Chargers a 3rd quarter TD was partially an underthrow by Rivers, as Flowers was clearly beaten on the play.I still have hope Flowers will continue to develop well, whereas Thompson even as just a second-year player doesn’t seem to have a particularly high ceiling.Shawn Hochuli and CrewHoly shit, that was abysmal. The third-down conversion cancelling David Moore pick play that wasn’t. The Mike Williams touchdown that wasn’t. The unnecessary roughness penalties on DJ Fluker and Justin Britt that were soft, at best. They called 22 accepted flags for almost 200 yards on both teams, and in fairness to the Chargers, Shaquill Griffin got away with a pass interference in the 3rd quarter, and that Melvin Ingram roughing the passer on the game’s final possession seemed iffy.That said, the worst calls seemed to tilt heavily against the Seahawks, and the game as a whole felt like I was watching some Pac-12 garbage. Oh, I wonder why that is...Joey Hunt, hung out to dryDJ Fluker went down with a calf injury, which if serious could kill this Seahawks running game for however long he’s out. Joey Hunt, usually a center, filled in at guard... it went poorly. Ethan Pocic was a healthy scratch despite playing as a center in college and being the former starting guard before J.R. Sweezy took his job. Not ideal!Final NotesFrank Clark and Jarran Reed were both liabilities at times in run support, butthey each had pivotal sacks to being their respective totals to 7.5 and 5 on the season.Doug Baldwin caught 4 passes for 77 yards, and should’ve had more if not for the David Moore pick play OPI. He’s still clearly not healthy, although that doesn’t mean he’s totally ineffective.This punt and kick return units are complete ass. Rashaad Penny’s one return only gained 19 yards, and Tyler Lockett is either getting creamed upon receiving the ball or making questionable decisions with fair catch/non-fair catch calls. David Moore could’ve gotten that end-zone grab on the final play, even with the deflections, but it was still a tough catch to make as a result of the slight change of direction. I’m not worried about him, as he’s performed beyond expectations already.Rashaad Penny needs to show some open-field elusiveness. He’s getting open-field tackled far too often. With Carson on the mend, we might see him get more touches. Mike Davis was culpable on one Wilson sack due to an awful blitz pickup whiff, and he ran backwards out of a first-down on a screen play, gaining only nine yards instead of eleven. Don’t do that again!We may be a little ticked off about Sebastian Janikowski’s 51-yard miss, but it could be worse... Caleb Sturgis has probably already been cut. He’s really a substantial reason the Seahawks even had a game-tying TD opportunity since he seemingly can’t make any kicks. It’s possible the 2016 and 2017 Seattle Seahawks Youth Shaquem Griffin Jersey , through underachievement on the field amid sky-high expectations, made you wonder if football could ever be fun again. The 2018 Seahawks are here to answer that question. In the affirmative. The strong affirmative.They’re here to make you remember the wild ride that we took six seasons ago, a roller-coaster that could’ve easily culminated in a Super Bowl appearance but didn’t — in much the same way our current Seahawks will stride into the playoffs but won’t have quite enough juice to finish the run. (Sorry for the spoiler, it couldn’t be helped.)It’s 2012 all over again, and not just because both teams were 4-3 through seven games. Buckle the hell up.EXHIBIT A: The ballHawkingIn 2012, one statistic told a better story than any other: takeaways. Seattle ran a +13 giveaway differential back then on the way to a wild-card berth, and they’re intent on following the same path. Through seven games, they’re already at +10, including this gem at the one-yard line that helped preserve a road victory. The pass defense looks like 2012 statistically in two other measures: Y/A against and passer rating against. 2012: The Seahawks’ 5.7 Y/A allowed was second overall, and their rating against was 72.7, good for third.2018: Seattle’s 6.3 Y/A allowed appears much higher on a raw level, but actually places them third overall, and their rating against is a sparkling 79.9, also third. In an even more pro-passing game than six years ago, the Seahawks’ stats may look a little worse at first glance, but are not any worse relative to the rest of the league, which is what really matters.If we’re talking volume, Seattle has forced 10 interceptions already, second-most among all teams who’ve played just seven games. Pete Carroll wants his teams to get after the ball. That’s happening at a rate that echoes the LOB’s rise to prominence. A new generation of ballHawks is learning to fly.EXHIBIT B: The philosophyPut aside your membership in Team #NeverRun and Team #AlwaysRun. Coach Carroll is going to coach the team without your input. (He is so rude.) And one of his go-to mantras is “Protect the ball.” It’s something the 2012 crew did astoundingly well, with only 18 turnovers committed, or 1.1 per game. And the 2018 team stands at 0.9 through seven games. Just like their highly successful predecessors, they are not going to give the game away through sloppy ball management.On a related note, they’re also not going to spend a lot of time passing. 2012: 536 runs, 405 passes, 36 sacks. A 55-percent running team.2018: 222 runs, 182 passes, 21 sacks. A 52-percent running team. If an independent observer had to describe the Seahawks’ 2012 offensive identity in 12 words or less (why 12? come on), he or she probably settles on “Ball-control offense spearheaded by bruising back and an explosive quarterback.” Which, is, naturally, 2018 in a nutshell. With some different faces. EXHIBIT C: The rolesThere is no LOB, no Marshawn Lynch, no Golden Tate, no Zach Miller, no Chris Clemons — all key components to turning around four consecutive losing seasons in Seattle. But a new secondary is rising to prominence. You sat through the numbers lesson. Your reward is a ton of pretty, pretty pictures. Sacksy pictures.Here you’re looking for number 37, the Tre Flowers Youth Doug Baldwin Jersey , who isn’t Richard Sherman yet, but has learned a thing or two about defending the run, like his LOB ancestor did.The Seahawks would’ve won in Detroit without this timely Tedric Thompson forced fumble, but it didn’t hurt. Yes, Thompson plays special teams. Just like the previous batch of safeties used to all the time. Special teams matter when Carroll’s running the show. They represent another opportunity to punish and steal. Bradley McDougald encourages you to not forget about him, which, how could you, after two picks, two forced fumbles, one recovery, and five passes defensed in less than half a season? On to the offense. Chris Carson is definitely not Beast Mode, but he definitely is in the Beast Mold. Not only is he tough, but he has vision that reminds one of Marshawn.Here he tackles two Lions on the way to the end zone, instead of the other way around. Silly Lions.Carson was doing this Baby Beast imitation as early as his rookie year, when he finished second [edit: not fourth!] in tackle-breaking, as measured by Pro Football Focus.Golden Tate can never be replaced, miss u Golden, please come back, I’m beggin’ here. But it’s not like Tate made catches in traffic any better than David Moore yesterday. Just more often.Why can’t Ed Dickson be just as valuable of a tight end as Miller? They both block, they both run corner routes in the end zone... Now Clemons was something else: fierce, relentless, bad in a good way, with mayhem on his mind. Frankly, does that remind you of anyone?Playing the role of Russell Wilson is... Wilson. Who better, than the older and wiser version of himself, even if he isn’t quite as evasive on the field anymore. Bobby Wagner, K.J. Wright and Doug Baldwin have reprised their original starring/supporting roles. In which they were nominated for awards, and as we all know, it’s an honor just to be blah blah blah.EXHIBIT D: The fun is backThe men in blue and green are enjoying themselves in a way we haven’t always seen. The play didn’t count, because the receiver (our good friend Tate) was ruled down by contact before fumbling. But put aside your anger at missing out on six more fantasy points and revel in a bunch of friends stopping, dropping and rolling into the end zone. They r not mad, bro.Well. Maybe they’re pretend mad?The 2018 Seahawks are more fun to watch, their personalities are blossoming in a fashion that’s fun to watch, and they’re fun to watch win games. If you’re at work and it’s Monday morning, now’s maybe a good time to trek down to the boss’ office and request some vacation time for February of 2020.
