  • How do you feel after this loss? How did the game change your opinion on this team, or did it?

  • I didn’t think we were gonna win....until we almost did. Only to end up losing in the Seahawkiest, Pete carrol way.

    We just better not play down to Chuckys Raiders next week in London.
    But we probably will.

    Go Hawks.

  • Absolutely!, The Run Game is finally showing some real promise.
    Not seeing much (YET) in the way of praise for the Offensive production in this game, It afforded the necessary time for the Defense to get some rest.

    Hopefully, the Offense will be able to CONTINUE progressing, a lot fewer three & outs eh?

  • Torn between to answers...feeling like a fool. I figured after the win at Az, they were starting to trend towards a decent team. This weekend pretty much solidifies that fact that they are who I (eye) thought they were. Starting to get their feet wet and maybe swim a couple of laps. The next couple football weeks will show the trend. *Detroit is trending upward too.

  • The team is processing upward, just compare the first two games to the last two. I didn't expect them to play at this level til mid season, so they are ahead of schedule.

    This is a reloading team, there will be ups and downs, more like two steps ahead, one step back ... I expect lots of growing pain and frustration. But am happy with our progress, happy with coaching and young Tre Flowers.

  • After yesterday's game, I'm 65% encouraged and 35% discouraged.

    Great to see the O-line and run game continue to come together with Fluker, as IMO it really plays into what Russell does well.

    Discouraged with the defense's continued inability to tackle and more importantly the D-line's inability to rush the passer. Other than Clark, we have literally no one that can put pressure on the QB.

    So change my opinion about how I felt after last week's game? Yes, a little. But we'll see if the offense can sustain the run game, and see if the defense can fix some of these issue.
    If there is no Seahawk football in heaven, then we will never die.

  • 2018 was always going to be a non-playoff season, but I was expecting it to look more like 2010. This looks closer to late 2011.

  • Considering I was confident this team would lost one million and change to a negative number, yes I'm impressed with the progress.

    It didn't seem like it a couple weeks ago, but this looks like a game, even in a loss, that could boost the team's confidence and propel them into the post season. It might suddenly get harder and harder to bet against the Seahawks.

    . Need to see next week before I make a real decision.

  • Before the game many thought the Rams were the best team in the NFC, if not the NFL.

    Everyone was predicting a blow out. And, if the Hawks were blown out as many had predicted, the negative Nancy’s would be all over .net.

    So, let’s be real. Yes, the team is trending up.

  • Not really - a team that will let a game within grasp slip through their fingers? Seems about right.

    This isn’t a playoff contending team; therefore, it’s not good enough to “play down” to anybody. We’re as close to the bottom as we are to the top.

  • I voted they are who we thought they were. Typical Pete in that he extends the preseason into the first few regular season games while tweaking the roster and playing time. By seasons end most of the fan base will be hyper excited for next year. Rebuilding or reloading, it’s a fun year without the stress of meeting high expectations.
    Go Hawks!

  • This loss was a better showing than any of the two wins.

    The team is what it is - trying to rebuild but with the same head coach on the sidelines so...not really going to happen until it happens.

    The O-Line is looking much improved which enables Wilson to play to his strengths and minimize his weaknesses. He still seems a half-step slower out there. Not sure if that's due to a nagging injury, extra weight, or?

    Run game is much improves as well.

    Defense is pretty solid. Look, Rams are the offensive powerhouse this season so I didn't expect us to limit them to a couple touchdowns. Just not going to happen. This isn't 2012 and the Rams are superior to us at just about every position even with some critical receiver injuries.

    All in all a good showing. It's the new era for the Seahawks when fans take a loss and go "Hey, not bad."

    Hopefully that'll change after another season or two and we can be right to demand superior performances game in and game out.

    We shall see.

    Yea we did. We forced the Rams into only their third 3 and out so far this season.

    RW looks really slow, not just a little. He has lost his mojo IMO. A QB like him is worthless without the legs, it is time to trade him in the offseason or start talks now.

  • The sickening thing about this team is how much we play down to our opponent. If our offense had played like they did yesterday since the beginning of the season we'd be 4-1 by now.

    Having said that, this team is better than I thought at the beginning of the season. I thought the Seahawks to be a 4-12 or 5-11 (at best) team. To be honest, if they had drafted anything else other than a RB in the 1st round (OL, DL, LB, DB, WR, almost anything), I dare say we'd have a chance to make the playoffs.

  • For those saying they are still not impressed with how the offense is improving. Are you kidding me we almost ran for 200 yards yesterday what more do you want. The offense isn't looking stale compared to the other teams. The problem some people are having is they wanna see that fancy offense stuff like jon grudens offense. Not me I'm very happy with what we got. Playing good D and running the ball. No one is going to contain that Rams offense they are powerhouses. So they put up 460 yards on us so what. They did the same thing to the other 4 teams they played. Matter of fact they dropped 550 plus yards on that so called vaunted Vikings D. So I think we are doing fine. Once we get settled in round 2 we will punch them in the mouth.

  • A sample size of 1 is not a trend.

    We have no idea what it is right now. The next 3 games will tell us.

    Not going to pee in anyone's Cheerios. If you are excited about the loss, maybe there is some improvement.

    But 1 game means nothing.

    I saw the same kind of threads by 7-9 teams that played us well when we were good (including the Rams). Whenever the Seahawks would have a game they played down to the opponent, that team would find it fans enthusiastic and hopeful that was a sign of change. For the most part it wasn't. Just a good team that played a crappy game.

    But maybe this time is different. We will know in 4 weeks.

    Fully agree with this. I liked what I saw against the Rams. Now let's see if they can perform like this on a weekly basis.

    I see Russell's pulled hamstring affecting him when he runs.
    On one of the plays where he did his lead blocking thing, I think it was on a Davis run in the 4th quarter, I saw Russell visibly favor his hamstring in his stride, like he tweaked int on that run. He looked OK up until that point, but the tell-tale hitch in his stride about 20 yards downfield told the story. To me it was obvious; I was surprised the commentators didn't say anything about the very visible injured hamstring on that play.

    I felt that the injured hamstring then kept him from running a couple Read-Option keepers in the 4th quarter.

    I am an unintentional authority on pulled hamstrings. I'm certain Russell tweaked his hammy on that downfield blocking run.

    We ran the ball pretty well in Arizona as well, so I'd quibble with the just one game sample size.

    Honestly I think the change has been Fluker back, and moving Sweezy to LG. Those are two of the nastiest road grating run blockers in the league, and having them now for two full games together has made the difference in the run game being successful.
