Hello Bleeding Green Nation, I'm Corax from Field Gulls. Rather short turnaround for the Thursday night game, just three days, really.
So, here, you can ask whatever you wish about the Seahawks, and me or other fans will be lurking around to answer your questions. A word to the wise: if you want to post a similar thread up on Field Gulls, you have two options: contact one of the admins (Thomas Beekers, Danny Kelly, I believe - they'll get you set up) to post a thread quickly or wait out the day plus lag period. Heh.
So, here are a few tidbits about our team:
We're sad after yesterday.
Our defense seems to be schizophrenic, just like our offense. They've shut down the big name backs and given an uncharacteristically large amount of yards to lesser known backs. It's weird.
Our defense also doesn't like speedy receivers. We don't really have the wheels to deal with them. (cough....uhm.....yeeeeah....is DeSean Jackson injured?)
Our offense is, contrary to earlier in the season, revolving around Marshawn Lynch and his 'Beast Mode'. He's unstoppable. He's had 100 yd games in three of the last four, and he's scored a TD in each. This has yet to manifest as what it should be: a supplement to a violently good passing attack, which so far has suffered largely because of o-line pass pro and Tarvaris Jackson.
Can't really blame TJack for being mediocre, though. He never claimed to be anything else. And, the guy is playing hurt, even though he doesn't complain. Great guy, not a great player.
Our punter Jon Ryan has a bunch of 'Chuck Norris' -isms, available upon request.
Our two young safeties and CBs are generally playing well - Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman (out of nowhere, he's pretty good and has a lot of upside), and Brandon Browner (who for some reason is the 5th best CB of the league this year so far...not sure how that's happened, his pick six probably factored into it) all man the backside of our defense (ha). At this stage of their evolution, they're usually exploitable to the deep pass. A lot.
Also, please rec this post so it stays near the top of all the fanposts. Thanks in advance!
