No bye week for the O and need to buy D tickets to Hawaii

The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13
  • Offense doesn't deserve a bye week. They need to stay in Seattle and try and get things right. They should however buy the entire defense tickets to Hawaii or something. Great job D!

  • I don't think that's how it works.

  • I mean, what about special teams players who are nominally on offense?

  • I get the sentiment...but, yeah. Now, Earl and SRich shouldn't have to buy a dinner or pump their own gas for the next 6 months.

  • With respect I honestly don't get what you guys expect.

    We have all the money invested on defense. They did great as we expect them to and deserve praise. We spend near the bottom of the league on offense. Russell ran for his life on every play and the offense got us ahead when needed

    The much more experienced D are getting the lions share of $$$$$$$$, they can afford to pay their own way to Hawaii.

    Ditto. I think by seasons' end the O will be running quite smoothly. Until then, the D can do their thing; that's why they're getting paid.

    They played great TODAY, but the d has been pretty bad up to this point. The O was more than good enough to beat the Titans, so I don't want to hear the D complain.

  • Good points. Recency bias on my part. That said, the D balled OUT today!

  • The offense hangs the defense out to dry at least five times more often than the reverse happens; and our biggest problem's income doesn't fall under the salary cap, so the "most of our money is invested in defense" argument is weak at best.

    Not saying the O doesn't, just that the D hasn't exactly been lighting it on fire until today. The O does need to step it up more, and I hope this is the start of the D finally being what we all thought it could be when we landed Richardson.

  • They put a nice long drive together, converted 3rd downs, and scored in the red-zone against a pretty good defense. I'm going to consider that some level of progress.

  • I'm just happy for the bye week. I think it best that it came early. There are a whole string of very winnable games coming up, but the defense needs to rest, and the offense needs to fix whats broken.

    The defense can afford to pay their own way. Russell needs to be a good bit of his earnings into long term care policies.
