Grading the Seahawks: After this one, school’s out

Quarterback: B
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.

Receivers: D
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.

Linebackers: D
Too many missed tackles by these guys.

Secondary: D
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.

Coaching: C
The offense didn’t seem limited by the scheme, but by execution. The defense was curiously passive and generated neither pressure nor coverage.
