Ranked 13 but the real info is: "The Seahawks are allowing 155 yards rushing per game over the past five after allowing 70 per game over their first six. (Sando)"

The alarming thing for me is that you can excuse away some of the big rush numbers for teams like the Vikings and Niners, cause they have AP and Gore.........but to give up 189 yards to Thomas and Bush? That red flag can't get any bigger.
Hawks46 wrote:Sure, they're great players, but has AP gotten 180+ yards against every other team ? It's also impossible that all the teams he's played have higher rated run defenses than we did at the time, so we played below average in that game, especially at home.
hawksfansinceday1 wrote:Been 5 games since S.F exposed the Hawks' weakness v. the run up the middle. When will we see some coaching adjustments to counteract this? Or, is it simply a matter of the team's interior personnel not getting the job done. Tim Ryan seems really, really sharp and he mentioned that the problem lies with Wagner's recognition and assignment follow through.

I think they saw the first one worked, no calls. And they just kept going back to it. Why not?
If the refs weren't calling the holds, why wouldn't you keep doing it?

In fairness, Seattle's faced some good running backs in the last 5 games. If they are getting gashed by Steven Jackson and whatever Arizona is running out there, then I'd get worried.
