Seahawks Read Option debut
Thu May 09, 2013 11:04 am
  • So I just re-watched every single game again with both commentary and all-22 to really analyze the Seahawks throughout the season and I was planning on doing a write up for that here in the future. But in the meantime, I caught something that I think a lot of people overlooked.

    The Read-option was very successful for us starting from the Chicago game on and many people (I was included) thought thats were we started using it. We were wrong. The Jets game 2 weeks prior featured it 6 times. And 4 of those times it was a complete failure. Wilson kept it for 3 and handed it off for 3 and 4 of those times made the wrong decision.

    My reaction to this was that Wilson saw the mistakes he made on film with it and was able to fix these errors.


    Not a spectacular topic, but I thought it was a neat, bored, offseason observation.

  • Interesting. I don't get to watch the Hawks unless they're on National TV so that observation is appreciated.

  • That's some good info right there. Love how Wilson seems to never make the same mistake twice.

    like the time in the packers game when he underestimated how fast an NFL D-tackle can run and took a sack for not running away full speed. Saw that play unfold and said, "That will never happen to him again.".

  • If you go re-watch the Carolina game you'll see a few of those read option plays as well. Again only 4 or 5 plays like Cartire said, but this notion that the read option came later in the season is incorrect.

    Using the Carolina game as an example, the option stuff wasn't executed very well and that is probably why so many of us don't remember it.

  • 1. Very Wilsonian, that he learns from his rare instances of poor play.

    2. Very Pete-ish, that he doesn't give up on a strategy just because it didn't work well the first time he tried it.

    Thanks for the research and the insight.

    He probably has NFL Rewind, since it has the All-22 film. I think renewal is coming up soon, in a month or so.

    Surely Kansas City has a big sports bar somewhere that can put the game on a TV?

  • I can't wait to see the no huddle, hurry up with the addition of Harvin along with the read option. I'm thinking Unstoppable!

    Get NFL rewind. It saved my sanity a few times this season when I couldn't watch the game live on TV -- plus I get to watch the wins about 8-10 times again that week (or later this evening). I forgot exactly how much it costs for the year, but something in the neighborhood of $60-70. If you have enough internet and computer to be active here, you probably have enough to stream the games.

    Great link, and a gem in the comments.

    http://vimeo.com/43635682

    Edit: if you don't watch it, Flynn wasn't the first to physically fail to compete with the man.


    This is a great video and a great article! Must watch and read for all RW fans.

    And yeah, kind of funny how every guy who's about to get beat by Wilson in a QB competition comes down with a case of the mysteriously sore arm.

    NFL Game Rewind. It cost money. But is way worth it. Every game from 2011, including playoffs. Full Game, Condensed (filler removed, just each play from beginning to end), and ALL-22 coachs film. Very very worth it if your a fan of the sport.

  • $70/year for the full NFL Game Rewind package. All games including playoffs/Super Bowl for the last 3 years in HD. (Moderate quality at best HD, but still way worth it.)
