I ain’t buying it, but we did have the lead and nearly pulled off a pretty big upset at the hands of the not-so-scary-anymore Seahawks. They were trounced by G Bay and nearly beaten by us in their house. But for a dropped pass (fuuuuuuck dood. You fucked up the 1st game mo with an ill-timed drop!) by Marquise Goodwin, the game very well could have been ours. But 12-9 is a loss.
Burt alas, we hassle, hit, and befuddle Russell Wilson all game until crunch time until he made a signature scramble, dart, weave, and pass to the side of the end zone for the only score. The defense did an even better job this game than last as they were on the field for the entire first half minus 4 minutes and change. The offense was atrocious, except for a few nifty Carlos Hyde runs. Hoyer had time and repeatedly missed guys and threw a pass right to a linebacker for a pick.
The good news is the first-game-absent Aaron Lynch was given a start and had a solid game providing pressure. The whole D line had a solid game, and the DBs minus a few bad plays, did OK. I understand that the offense will take some time, but Hoyer just looks like shit. They stopped even trying to throw more than 8 yards as every pass was late or behind the intended receiver.
The D has come around spectacularly given the crapitude of our offense. It is on Brian Hoyer to get his head out of his ass. I really had hope he’d be a serviceable if not decent QB. He hasn’t shown it since the Minn preseason game.
