Sorry you missed the memo. Team is built on D. See todays game as an example.
I know that. I meant that I don't expect them to extend him between now and free agency because I don't think he'll want to take a pay cut and I don't think the team is going to want to spend more than $10 million for the next several years on him, so they can spend the money they've been spending on him the past few years on one or more players this off-season. Maybe I didn't phrase it very well, but I hope you get the point I was trying to make.
ya the D showed up today, but we already know what happens to this team when the D isnt there.
unfortunately, winning today likely means we stay with the same shitty offense
The cap space is only 12 million next year ( after cost of draft?) for the Seahawks, as you can see from the graph. Some teams have over a 100 million to put in prospective how little 12 million is for a team to have.
Biggest focus is a RB. I believe that to be the biggest problem with the O. I'm good with replacing Cable this off season if they can find a guy with vision.
Its not the RB or any of the players really, its the offensive system and the coaches. it all needs to be dumped.
With less of a line and Carson running, our run game was ok. Not Beastmode, but ok. Wasn't if fine, just fine when Rawls ran year before last?
Doesn't this suggest an easy fix is a killer RB instead of a complete overhaul which can backfire just as easily as it could be successful?
You don't want it fixed. You just want somebody canned, lol.
i dont agree that a killer RB is going to magically cure the clusterfuck of an offense we are running right now.
the main problem with this offense is lack of scoring, red zone offense, and converting 3rd downs. these were all problems even when lynch was on our team.
If the FO does what I hope they do and rid Cable and bring in a young fresh mind on how to run an o-line, then that 2 yr struggle might not happen.
If I remember correctly the Hawks put a price tag really high on Sherm. I think it was a 1st and 3rd.
It's not the main problem...
Scoring - Ranked #13
3rd down - Ranked #15 - What's funny is that we're better on 3rd down conversions (39%) this year than when we won the SB (37.3%)...
RZ scoring - 2nd best since Carroll era NFL Football Stats - NFL Team Red Zone Scoring Percentage (TD only) on TeamRankings.com
We have scored how many defensive points? Seems higher than past years. How many 3rd down conversions are wilson running after broken plays?
Stats mean nothing, just watch the offense, its a clusterfuck
There are two problems with this team, imo...
The main problem with our team is that the defense, which we've invested 69% of our salary into has not been able to perform like years past... You invest only 31% of the salary in the offense, you get what you get... This defense has given up almost 40% 3rd down conversions this year... They're a big reason the team hasn't performed up to expectations and that's due to the injuries they've had to endure so i'm not going to place too much blame on them personally, if any at all... They've actually played better than I thought they would with all the injuries we've had... But the fact that we can't get a team off the field, is the main reason our team hasn't been as productive... We're 24th this year in opponents TOP, highest during Pete Carrolls tenure here...
Lack of running game... Our running backs blow... No way around it... Rawls isn't the same as he was last year... He's running desperate when he get's the ball... Meaning, he's running 100% full speed into the lane that the play calls for... He's not being patient... Brock did a video a few weeks ago where our RB's have been leaving yards on the field by not being patient, waiting for the holes to open up or missing the crease that allows you to pick up 4 yards instead of 2... We're throwing the ball too much now because of this and the defense is pretty much putting 6 or 7 in the box, that's it...
You've got alex collins listed as average? I don't think the ravens would agree with you lol...
Blaming the defense is a cop out, the offense simply cannot pick up the slack.
Fix the o-line the offense will run smoother.
You just fail to be rational... Your hate for Bevell really clouds your judgement...
69% salary into the defense and they're average... 31% salary into the offense and they're average... You do the math... Add to the fact that the ST's are less than average...
The penalties also have to stop and that falls on the coaches to a degree. We might have the most offsides and false starts I've ever seen. Constantly giving up first downs to the opposition and costing our own first downs or putting the offense behind the sticks.
The O isnt average, its monumentally bad.
I agree with your assessment. There re other factors, kicking game as an example. Yet, the team still has plenty of talent.
My vision of hope is we find a RB next year, some way some how. He can make everything on the O better. Focus still remains on the OL regardless who the OL coach is.
