Gonna be busy, but here goes. Turns out that the Atl loss hurt more than expected after the Seahawks laid an egg against AZ. We could have treated this game as our bye week before the bye week, but alas, we are still fighting for position.
Thing is, AZ won by bringing pressure and rushing 5 at times. We may need to do that because we have seeen that by not getting pressure, we don’t do well on defense. We are getting guys close, but Goff and Ryan are nothing like Russell Wilson. The Hawks have lost their share of RBs, but now the word is Beast Mode is winging his way to Seattle to play for Pete again.
No idea what shape he’s in, but certainly an interesting little wrinkle. What has been killing me is the fact that Bosa and Armstead have been biting on 90% of the inside fakes. Goff was clear to throw on play action rollouts all night on Saturday. Screens were overpursued and worked most of the time. Saleh made some decent adjustments, but all in all, except for Fred Warner’s sniffing out the swing pass, a poor defensive performance.
Yet another game where I’m gonna say, it’s all about getting to the QB. And protecting ours. Both lines were dominated last Saturday, and they all need to improve to beat Seattle.
