Well, the Seattle Seahawks clanked and sputtered for most of the contest, but rallied late for a 24-17 win over San Diego in both teams preseason opener.

The game marked the debut of quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, and without starting receivers Sidney Rice and Mike Williams, along with third receiver Ben Obomanu, Jackson predictably struggled.

He finished 3 of 5 for 15 yards, with a 64.6 passer ratting in a quarter of play. Jackson was sacked twice. His only saving grace is he didn’t turn the ball over.

But although his performance wasn’t pretty, Jackson remained poised in the pocket, and showed some much-needed mobility to get away from the pass rush, playing behind a young offensive line.

The Seahawks’ defense let the Chargers march 89 yards and score on the opening drive of the game, so that obviously was not good.

But we did see an improvement in Seattle’s running game, with the Seahawks finishing with 133 yards on the ground.

In his return to San Diego, Charlie Whitehurst was efficient, finishing 14 of 20 for 115 yards and no interceptions.

And third-team quarterback Josh Portis rallied Seattle for a game-tying touchdown, a 6-yard toss to tight end Anthony McCoy.

Jameson Konz, who switched from tight end to defensive end last week, got his first sack and looked pretty solid as a gunner on punts.

And cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner had solid games.

Tight end Dominique Byrd had a nice game, finishing with two catches for 59 yards, including a long of 29 yards.

    What's up with Okung and his glass ankles? And our go to guy is Polumbus? Didn't our No 1 pick Carpenter play LT?

  2. adam says:

    I think Jackson looked shaky at best. He made a couple good plays with his feet, but he wasn’t confident in the pocket. It will be a constant struggle for the Hawks to move the ball this year, and it makes you wonder; what was wrong with Andy Dalton????

    Go Hawks!!
