Another Florio Rant,
Last week, I wrote about Pete Carroll’s “uncommon” optimism rubbing off on the Seahawks. After enduring another beatdown at home, reality has started to set in.
The Seahawks look like a very poor team in a worse division that has overachieved to get to 5-6. Signs of depression:
1. “We’re too hurt,” quarterback Matt Hasselbeck told ESPN’s Mike Sando. “We have to get healthy.”
Wideout Mike Williams was out and center Chris Spencer left Sunday’s game. Seattle has injuries, but we don’t think they are atypical at this point of the year.
2. The Seahawks kneeled to end the game despite trailing.
3. Seattle has been blown out twice in a row at home, giving up 40 points in both games. In their last five games, Seattle is 1-4 . They’ve allowed 33.6 points-per-game over that span. The four defeats were by an average of 24 points.
The Seahawks host the Panthers, then head to San Francisco the next two weeks. Those are both winnable games, but no win can be taken for granted for Seattle right now.
The Seahawks are playing like one of the worst teams in the league; they just happened to be tied for first place.
