A lot of the positive stats came after the game was out of hand (94.3 passer rating, 3 touchdowns), but Matt Hasselbeck certainly wasn’t the Seahawks’ problem.
Running backs: D
There was nowhere to run, but 34 rushing yards is simply not making anything happen, either. The longest run of the game, 13 yards, came from receiver Golden Tate.
Mike Williams was targeted 13 times and came down with four receptions. Half dozen drops.
Offensive line: C-minus
Hasselbeck was sacked just twice, which was not bad against the Bears. But the anemic rushing output made this an overall dismal effort.
Defensive line: C:
They got three sacks and held the Bears to 3.9 yards per carry on the rush. But most of the time Cutler had all day to throw.
Too many missed tackles by these guys.
Babineaux dropped a crucial interception, and nobody seemed intent on defending tight end Greg Olsen.
Special teams: B
Coverage units kept Devin Hester from breaking anything for a score, so that’s a victory.
The offense didn’t seem limited by the scheme, but by execution. The defense was curiously passive and generated neither pressure nor coverage.
