Mediocre production doesn’t faze receiver

Published on August 28, 2011 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

Where’s Sidney?

That’s a question after three exhibition games for the Seattle Seahawks.

Sidney Rice, the Seahawks’ $41 million playmaking receiver signed in free agency, has not had much of an impact for Seattle with four catches for 22 yards and no touchdowns.

Rice did not play in the first exhibition at San Diego. He finished with two catches for 11 yards against Minnesota in the second exhibition, following that up with another two catches for 11 yards against Denver on Saturday.

Possibly the main reason for Rice’s lack of catches has been Seattle’s inability to give quarterback Tarvaris Jackson enough time to find his targets.

Still, expectations are high for Rice, who has looked dominant in practice, but has not shown those “wow” plays in the games.

Rice did draw a pass interference penalty on Nate Jones in the end zone in the fourth quarter against the second-unit defense.

“I’m just continuing doing what I do,” Rice said. “I’m not saying so much that I’m doing things right, but there’s still a lot of things that I can work on myself, and as receivers to get better as a team. But there’s also stuff as an offense that we need to get done.”

Seattle coach Pete Carroll said there’s still time to get Rice going.

“We’re not using him very much,” he said. “We’re just getting him out there. We’re trying not to go to him too much. We want to make sure we’re going to other guys, knowing there’s a chemistry that exists. We haven’t been able to see it yet, like we would like, but we know what he can do.”
