Grading the Seahawks: One-dimensional Offense & Defense

Published on December 2, 2010 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

Quarterback: D-minus

Although 282 passing yards looks good, Matt Hasselbeck also had two interceptions and a lost fumble.

Running backs: F

There was nowhere for them to run, but averaging 1.7 yards per carry is simply a failure.

Receivers: C

Ben Obomanu deserved an A with 159 receiving yards, but there were too many drops, and Deon Butler was targeted 9 times and came up with two catches for 9 total yards.

Offensive line: D

The pass protection wasn’t bad most of the game, but getting no push on the rushing game made the Hawks predictably one-dimensional.

Defensive line: F

The Chiefs pushed them all over the stadium, rushing for 270 yards.

Linebackers: D-minus

Some of their issues were due to the weakness up front, but none of them had strong games.

Secondary: D

The coverage tended to be too soft most of the game, and at times nonexistent. Dwayne Bowe finished with 170 yards on 13 catches.

Special teams: A

This unit kept them in the game with big plays by Kennard Cox, Earl Thomas, Craig Terrill and Leon Washington.

Coaching: D

Much of it is personnel related, but the staff has come up with nothing to create a rushing attack. The fade route to Golden Tate on a fourth-and-inches was hardly inspired.
