Seahawks are struggling to execute basic blocks

Thursday was an ugly night in the trenches for the offensive line of the Seattle Seahawks. On 30 carries, the Seahawks managed just 72 rushing yards — and 26 of those yards came on Jon Ryan’s fake punt. Thomas Rawls, in particular, mustered just 1.6 yards per carry and according to ProFootballFocus had -10 yards

How Cliff Avril made quick work of Rams o-line to set new career-high in sacks

After being quite quiet for the last three weeks, Cliff Avril sacked Jared Goff 1.5 times in the Seattle Seahawks’ 24-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday. Avril now has 11.5 sacks on the season, which puts him just past his personal record of 11 sacks which he set in 2011 with the

Guide to beating Rams starts with Jared Goff

After the horrendous Sunday beatdown in which the Green Bay Packers absolutely dismantled the Seattle Seahawks 38-10, I wanted to turn my efforts towards Week 15 instead of reliving the painful past; the Seahawks look to rebound against rookie Jared Goff and the Los Angeles Rams. A few weeks ago, I took a deeper dive

The good and the bad from Broncos running back Devontae Booker

Coming out of Utah, scouts loved running back Devontae Booker’s versatility and his one-cut downhill running style. Most saw the potential for him to be a complete three-down back and one of the bigger “steals” of the 2016 NFL Draft after he was selected in the fourth round by the Denver Broncos. As a rookie,

Don’t believe the numbers, Thomas Rawls had a good game

In the Seattle Seahawks 5-14 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, the blocking by the offensive line was a major issue. Although Thomas Rawls only gained 38 yards on 12 carries, he actually ran well. Unlike last week versus the Eagles, Rawls did not miss any reads and on multiple busted plays turned

Kirk Cousins should be paid like a top-5 QB

Prior to his 2015 breakout season, Kirk Cousins was a relatively unknown commodity. His previous seasons with the Washington Redskins included playing behind former 2nd overall pick Robert Griffin III, while also getting benched in favor of veteran Colt McCoy. It was not until the Redskins’ victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 7

Noah Spence was too quick for George Fant

During the Seattle Seahawks 14-5 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, quarterback Russell Wilson was sacked six times and under pressure for more than half of the offense’s time on the field. Much of that pressure came from defensive end Noah Spence, the rookie out of Eastern Kentucky who the Bucs chose in the second

Thomas Rawls didn’t take advantage after CJ Prosise injury

It’s been quite the couple of weeks for Pete Carroll’s running backs. The changes since last season include (but are not limited to) the retirement of Marshawn Lynch, the departure of Bryce Brown and Fred Jackson, the non-tendering and then re-signing of Christine Michael, the drafting of CJ Prosise, Alex Collins, and Zac Brooks, the

How Carson Wentz threw 2 picks vs Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday and much of that was due to Carson Wentz — the rookie quarterback from North Dakota State — making bad decisions, forcing passes down the field; two of those passes resulted in interceptions by the Seahawks. In this video breakdown, I discuss the reasons behind Wentz’s

Jared Goff’s debut for Rams highlights problems in his game and offense as a whole

LA Rams quarterback Jared Goff, the number one overall pick in April over Carson Wentz and many others, made his first official start on a rainy Sunday versus the Miami Dolphins. The highly-anticipated debut was already on shaky ground as many questioned how a player taken that high couldn’t sniff the field for 10 weeks

The trickery of Doug Baldwin’s touchdown pass to Russell Wilson

The Seattle Seahawks came away with a 26-15 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday in large due to their success on explosive plays offensively and defensively. This is a closer look at one of those plays and how it unfolded with a little bit of trickery and ended in Russell Wilson catching a touchdown

Breaking down CJ Prosise’s 72-yard TD vs Eagles

Early in the first quarter on the Seattle Seahawks’ second drive against the Philadelphia Eagles, rookie running back C.J. Prosise broke free for a 72-yard touchdown run. How did it happen? The Seahawks call an inside zone running play to the left on 2nd-and-2 at the their own 28-yard line: I'll be looking at CJ
