The morning after: Seahawks at Vikings

Published on August 29, 2010 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Feels like a regular-season morning, waking up in another time zone uncertain at first of just where I am or why the phone is ringing in this unfamiliar room.

Ah yes, Minnesota. Up early for the light-rail trip to the airport, but before I board my plane, a few more quick thoughts on Saturday’s exhibition game:

• Charlie Whitehurst has looked progressively worse over the course of Seattle’s three exhibition games. He remains firmly entrenched as the back-up, but he was particularly bad in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game. His 47-yard pass to Golden Tate was a highlight, but his next three throws were increasingly worse, culminating in an interception that two different Minnesota defenders were vying for.

• Leon Washington gained 16 yards on six carries as the starter, and coach Pete Carroll conceded afterward that the team remains unhappy with the production on the ground, and that really, Seattle’s lack of first-down production made it tough to give an accurate reading of Washington’s success as the starter.

In three exhibition games, Seattle has started three different players and the first-quarter results have been similarly dismal. The Seahawks’ starting running back has averaged fewer than 3 yards per carry in the first quarter of all three exhibition games.

• Tight end John Carlson caught one pass for 6 yards, and unless the Seahawks are playing possum or keeping coy when it comes to his involvement in the passing game, it’s now OK to be officially concerned.
