Best pass rush in the NFL?
Tue Nov 19, 2013 2:30 pm
  • Saw this on ESPN, and didn't reallize how much pressure our D puts on the QB's. (Granted I only watch games via DVR and usually don't have time to watch every play.)

    The Seahawks have sacked or put opposing quarterbacks under duress on 36.5 percent of dropbacks, best in the NFL (Chiefs: 28.8 percent). The constant stream of pressure has helped the Seahawks force the most turnovers (26) this season, including the most interceptions (16) and highest interception percentage (4.4 percent of attempts).

  • The greatest part of it is that the pressure is coming from everyone. Bennett and Avril are SO working out along with the other interior guys.

    PC in the past has used a lot of safety blitzes (eye test) and this year it is happening consistently up front. I love seeing the big guys getting there and causing trouble. Very few teams have stopped it.

    Mission accomplished.

  • Wow... I would have thought KC had the lead running away in that category with justin Houston and Tamba Hali both being so far up the sack leaderboard. Turns out it's us! Very cool stat. Avril and Bennett have been amazing pick-ups.

  • With our offense finally getting healthy we should be playing with more leads which will probably just make this stat get even better. Let the d'linemen just rush the passer without even having to worry about the rush as much.

  • IMO the points per game is a bit misleading as we have rested our starters on at least a couple of occasions; namely last week, the Cards game and when we let the Jags score a couple of garbage time TD's. Our points allowed is really about 2 points less per game which would put us on par with the Chiefs. Just sayin'.

  • Wow, e have such an amazing team. With Harvin and Tate returning kicks, Haushka nailing 50+'s and Ryan money inside the 20, we can literally win any game from any one of the 3 phases. It's not just our O and D that are scary, our ST is special.

  • Am I the only one who thinks our pass rush looks very inconsistent? Yeah they get some big sacks... but they also let the opposing QB stand completley uninterrupted in a super clean pocket more often then not it feels..

    1. Sacks always come in bunches.

    2. Separate the first 4-6 games from the last few. We are stronger now with the players returning from injury/suspension.

    I'd rather be on the upswing in these areas this time of year than the downswing like KC appears to be. Somehow our coaching staff seems to have mastered the talent of peaking in the late-season/playoff time. It was kind of masked by the W/L record but we did it in 2011. We did it last year and it appears we're on a similar path this year.

    I like it. :th2thumbs:
    Talent can get you to the playoffs.
    It takes character to win when you get there.

  • Last year the Hawks ended up with 36 sacks as a team, leaving us tied for 18th best in the league.

    This year we're currently at 33 sacks, which puts us in 5th place. Nice improvement, isn't it?


    For forced fumbles, last year we finished with 20 to be tied for 5th place.

    This year we're currently at 15, which places us tied for 2nd place. Another nice improvement.

  • Wonder what our defensive PPG would look like vs. the rest if you looked at starters only and adjusted for points given up during garbage-time by our 2nds and 3rds, i.e., when we're up by 20 or more? Seems like we've given a bunch of points in those situations, while KC, for example, hasn't blown out anybody & so their starters are always in......
