I missed the game.

  • But I kept up with the score.

    My questions

    Did we really play better?
    Did Dallas stink it up?

    What improvements did you notice?

    Little of both, but we had some positive signs

  • Both. Dallas shot themselves in the foot a lot.

    But Seattle played great. Offensive line kicked ass, Carson got 30 carries and ran for 100, and Russell made tight throws with authority.

    Earl Thomas had 2 interceptions, and he took a bow at the Dallas sideline after the second INT, drawing a taunting penalty. A lot more people want to re-sign Earl now than before, I'm assuming.

  • We played better. Offense still needs work.
    Dallas kinda stunk.
    We committed to the running game & it consequently helped the Oline in pass protection.

  • The MAIN difference was the coaching. They stuck with the run to Carson from the start and didn't stop.

  • It was a bit of both but there was some positives for the offense. We did get to see a penalty so terrible in favor of the cowboys even troy aikman was absolutely disgusted.

    Yeah no kidding, at what point do you give this defense some credit? They went on the road and played great in back to back games, then came home and did it again. Sure it wasn't against the best offensive teams but they've got 7 turnovers in 3 games.

    The only issue I've seen is the coaching staff not realizing they need to run it to Carson early and often. They finally do it and we dominate a game (one that would have been much more dominant if we didn't commit stupid penalties.)

    I'm not expecting this team to be the best in the league, I'm not expecting them to beat the best in the league. But I do expect this team to continue to get better and build a young foundation with an elite quarterback. That foundation can then be built on into next year where we will see it really start to come together.

  • Good win. Great effort, and you could see quite a few improvements. Even saw Russ throw the ball away when nothing was there. Rome wasn't built in a day and either will this retool job that Seahawks started. Keep it rolling young fellas.

  • We played a good game. 7/16 on 3rd down conversion. 5:00 more TOP. 3 take aways, Zero turnovers. Russ played really good and had a few drops. His stats won't tell the complete story. Carson pounded out 102 yrds. D played well.

    Dallas struggled on offense with the exception of Zeke.

    It's a start. It wasn't sexy but it's a W.

  • --Seattle finally let Carson eat, and it positively effected the whole team.

    --Dallas had some super dumb mistakes, which made things much easier for the Seahawks.

    --Zeke stepped out of bounds not realizing where he was on the field. Cost DAL 4 points.

    --Kris Richard had his patented blown coverage special. (Sherm would've melted down on the sidelines.)
    Giving up a cheap 50 yd TD. Cost DAL 7 points.

    --Gregory had an inexcuble late in the half (under 10 sec) personal foul that, put Seattle in FG range. Cost DAL 3 Points.

    --14 point swing of stupidity.

    Good teams won't be as helpful.



    Yet and still it was a game that the Seahawks could build off of. They played the right way today.

    Well being on the side of less dumb mistakes helped, and as a rebuild team in many aspects these are building blcok wins on what to do right and point out where to improve that continue to build till you have a beastquake type game that tilts things to a more dominant team.

  • Pretty much everything that's been said.
    The one thing not given much specific attention is that the Hawks' pass rush consistently got pressure on Dak and sacked him numerous times. That was a pleasant surprise.

    Having Bobby Wagner back was fantastic and made our D so much better. Mychal Kendricks was excellent overall, I thought, and fits in great in our D. Even Barkevious Mingo had a superb sack on a mobile Prescott.

    Michael Dickson as usual gave us a consistent field position edge with his punting.

    It just felt like incremental progress across the board, young players learning and stepping up. Guys like Trey Flowers. And how about Joey Hunt at Center??!! Britt was out and Hunt plugged right in.
    I thought Schotty called a better game and he and Russell were more on the same page. Like the TD to Jaron Brown, nice playcall, Russ read the safety, got the ball out quickly, TD.

    Fade's analysis is thought-provoking, classifying 14 points as gifts from the Cowboys. I can't really disagree with much of it, other than classifying the Lockettt TD as 7 blown coverage "gift" points. Russell and Tyler took advantage of it. So I'd say Dallas truly gifted us 7 points, Elliott out of bounds 4 and 3 for stupid personal foul penalty, but I'll give credit to the 'Hawks for making the big play to take advantage of the blown coverage. I'll also give credit to Schotty for the playcall that caused and exposed the Dallas coverage. We still had to make the play, and we did. So I wouldn't count that 7 as a gift.

    Overall, a very Pete Carroll type of game. Run the ball, play strong defense, win the turnover battle, and get some big explosive plays. The Lockett and Jauron Brown TD's I'd call explosive plays.

    It was Cover 2. The CB passed Lockett off to the Safety. Except the Safety wasn't there. It was a badly blown coverage. They are gift points, to have a guy running wide open like that. You cannot bank on that to happen every week. Good on the Hawks for taking advantage.

    Haven’t heard specifics but camera showed him yelling like a madman on the sidelines in the first half. I’m not sure if it was directed at anyone or just venting or something but the nearest guy didn’t seem phased by it

  • I only saw the first half. Fell asleep..... yes the first half was that boring.

    I will say our defense continues to impress, although the Dallas offensive is putrid.

    Not sure what to read into this game other than a win. Good for them.

    I will try and catch a replay this week and may make more comments, but plenty others will be able to provide more information.

  • I guess the thing that sounds the most encouraging is, many feel we showed some improvement despite the cowboys not playing well.

    Hopefully it’s a solid building block, and becomes a trend that continues.

    There's no doubt that this is true but what posters are saying that the Cowboys stunk or shot themselves in the foot has to do with things like an idiotic 15 yard personal foul that put us in FG range or Elliot stepping out of bounds(I believe he did it on another occasion to nullify another short completion) & taking an easy TD off the board at a critical time.

    Our defense played well but had nothing to do with making them look like crap in those instances. They did it to themselves.

  • A team that makes less stupid mistakes then the other tends to have an advantage out of the gate, recall how many stupid procedure and off sides and holding penalties have cost us drives and chances in games. We had far less then what we have dealt with in the past yesterday, that's progress and the team making the more mistakes lost.

  • Few things I felt noteworthy:

    1. Defense still getting multiple turnovers per game. Could have been more. After this weekend, we shall see if that holds up. Keenum/Trubisky/Prescott/Rosen is kind of a weak QB group. We have Goff/Carr/Stafford/Rivers/Goff/Rodgers/Newton coming up.

    2. Penalties. Seahawks have been pretty solid on penalties this year. 22 called thus far. Only 8 on offense through three games. Only 6 false starts/encroachment penalties. Seems like the club is more dialed in focus wise on that.

    3. Good pressure versus a good OL at home. Pass rush is a different beast at home. Conversely, very little to complain about with our OL. Dallas had up to yesterday been extremely capable along the DL. Yesterday they were collectively a non factor.

    4. Clearly showed greater will to stick with running game. The rush success rate didn't seem to be greater to start the game than in weeks one and two. But didn't abandon it outright and I think that proved to be a contributing factor.

    5. Passing game seemed to be in much better rhythm. Seemed that ball came out on time a lot more. Few negative plays in the passing game.

    6. Game felt like Seattle had the game pretty well in hand. That the score was closer than it felt. Very much the opposite of the first two weeks.

    Correct.

    He had nice bullets to Brown and Lockett, too, for touchdowns. One of his better games.

    Makes me wonder if it's partly because he's used to practicing against Kris Richard's defenses.
