From the Armchair: Seattle Seahawks, Week 3
People expected the Seahawks to stomp the Jags, which they did. Most people expected them to cover the spread easily (I, however, was a little less confident). They did...and then some. You won't see a ton about the Seahawks on NFL Network or ESPN this week, because they did what they were expected to do: they beat a bad team at CLink.
It was good to see the Seahawks use this as an opportunity to get their aerial attack back on track. Russell Wilson passed for 4 touchdowns and Tarvaris Jackson had 2. Wait...T-Jack what? Yes, after the third quarter - or maybe it was somewhere in the middle, I really don't remember - the Seahawks pulled both their starting offense and defense and let the 2's and 3's take some reps. (Those of you wondering how the Jags came back and scored 17 points on the Hawks know now.) Sidney Rice and Zach Miller both had a great game and did you see that Doug Baldwin TD reception?! They're going to need both aspects of that offense to take on the Texans this week on the road.
The defense looked as stout as ever, though I'm not really sure how impressive that is against Chad Henne. There were a couple of deep pass completions allowed due to blown coverage later in the game, but for most of the first half, the Jags were totaling negative yards.
Notes from location:
- I expected the 12th Man to be a lot quieter than they were against the Niners. They were a little, but not a lot. I lost my voice again halfway through the game, so I'm betting that happened to many of my fellow fans as well.
- The weather was bipolar.
- Why do they run out of nacho cheese at halftime EVERY game?
- I need a playlist of everything the house DJ plays during warmups.
- Last week the kiddo made a sign for Marshawn Lynch in Touchdown City before the game. This week she made one for Russell Wilson. Obviously she's got some sort of mojo. We play the Titans October 13 - who should she make a sign for?
Until next time!
