The seahawks were missing half their secondary... we should have pushed the ball downfield a few times. Sure, the pass rush was in Jimmy's face, but if we connect on only one deep shot, maybe they tweak their approach and send out more people to cover, instead of blitzing every other play. Or you know, maybe we get one of these DPIs the rest of the league get because they do throw deep from time to time. Bad game plan. I don't know why we had more inside running than in any other game this year. Sure, the seahawks have the LBs to run down the stretch plays, but I'm sure we could have still managed to get that amazing 2 yards per run average while running to our strength, while being able to run the playaction off of it. Kyle overthought this game plan. We played to the seahawks' strengths, as if that would catch them off guard.
I know we allowed 37 points, but I don't blame the defense. Well, other than the pass rush not getting home, I think the rest of the D managed as well as they could have. Even if we had just had Dee Ford in there, I think we make a few more defensive stops. But these guys aren't getting home. Hyder is solid for the most part, but Arnstrong is being played at DE way too much. We miss the inside explosion that forces the one on ones outside. Our pass rush was sealed off most of the game. Not much a back end can do when that happens. Moseley allowed over 100 yards to Metcalf, but anyone would have, when Russell can drop the ball as accurately as he does. And he does because he had no one in his face all game.
