Heck, even Lynch and Turbin have dropped crucial passes this season that basically killed drives when we really REALLY needed points. You need 1-2 good clutch receivers (at least) to be successful in the NFL, and we have zero. Of course, it's a problem most of us saw before the season even began, no surprise there. I'm just surprised they haven't spent any picks at receiver, when it's such an obvious need.
I'm hoping Sarkisian gets fired from the UW, comes to the Seahawks, and we draft a boat-load of receivers this offseason, along with a few pass blocking OLs. Get those two areas straightened up, and we might contend next season.
..so long as he is not asked to partake in the development of Wilson. I am far from an expert on the subject, but I'm not at all pleased with his influence on Locker and even less so with Keith Price. Udubs patchwork Oline has hurt Price's progress for sure, but it is clear Sark expects something from his QBs that ignores their actual skillset. Correct me if I am mistaken, but I don't believe Price ran the ball even once this past weekend! I could see Sark bottling-up Wilson as well.
The (anticipated) argument that Sark did well with QBs @ SC cannot be proven. Most of us would do well coaching the talent SC gets ...but how many, in recent years, have done well in the pros, no longer playing against inferior competition?
