Grading the Seahawks: Lots of ‘Ds’ in Denver

Published on September 20, 2010 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

Grading the Seahawks in their 31-14 loss to the Broncos today in Denver:

OFFENSIVE LINE: C

They rushed for a 5.5-yard average, and Hasselbeck was sacked just once, but penalties were crippling. Stacy Andrews had two false starts in the first period and Sean Locklear and Ben Hamilton each had holding calls.

RECEIVERS: B

Golden Tate’s 52-yard catch and Ben Obomanu’s touchdown grab highlighted a pretty solid effort.

QUARTERBACK: D-minus

— Hasselbeck finished with a 51.2 passer rating and three interceptions. Aside from the picks, he was inaccurate much of the day.

RUNNING BACKS: B

Hasselbeck had the biggest run of the day, a 20-yard touchdown. But Forsett (8-44) and Leon Washington (4-17) had good runs, as did fullback Michael Robinson (1-15). The total of 109 net yards wasn’t that great, but the 5.5-yard average they can live with.

DEFENSIVE LINE: B

The line got very little pressure on Orton, but holding the Broncos to 65 yards on 38 rushes (1.7 average) is solid work.

LINEBACKERS: D

Lofa Tatupu had a couple missed tackles and an unnecessary roughness call after hit receiver who was down. (Iffy call).

SECONDARY: D

Kyle Orton looked like Elway, finishing with a 117.3 passer rating. Receivers were wide open on far too many occasions.

SPECIAL TEAMS: C

Walter Thurmund’s fumble-muff turnover after the Broncos’ first possession set a bad tone for the game. Tate helped balance the grade with a 63-yard punt return.

COACHING: D

This team was chased off the field. Lots of reasons for that. But whatever preparations were made this week were ineffective, and adjustments made during the game had no effect.
