Seahawks fall to 2-6 after 23-13 loss to Dallas

Published on November 6, 2011 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

Well, that wraps up another Seahawks loss – this one 23-13 to the Dallas Cowboys.

The Seahawks are now 2-6 half way through the season. Besides the losses, are you tired of… .

…. the offense settling for field goals? What is it with Seattle’s pro teams struggling to score? This game reminded me of so many Seahawks games in recent history, and just about 85 Mariners games this season. Defense is great, but at some point you’ve got to score.

…. DeMarco Murray. Wow. That guy looks pretty good. He sliced the Seahawks allegedly strong run defense for 139 yards.

… of sideline shots of Rex Ryan. The Dallas Cowboys’ defensive coordinator is Ryan, or did you know that? Geez… the guy gets more air time than those stupid Fox robots.

…. Tarvaris Jackson making crazy throws. His three second half picks – one thrown into a mosh pit,  another just chucked up for grabs and then the last forced into coverage – are the kind of throws that make you think he’s never going to get it. Look, he’s tough – the guy takes abuse and still keeps going – but he’s got to stop slinging the ball around like he’s Brett Favre.

…. Of Robert Gallery committing holding penalties. Two big holds in the second half were momentum sapping. For that matter, the whole team needs to learn to stop being sloppy because the penalties, 10 for 88 yards against Dallas, are killer.

… the Seahawks wasting timeouts early in the third quarter? Although I guess that’s only important if you are close enough at the end to actually need the timeouts.

… of seeing the Seahawks ignore Zach Miller? While with the Raiders, Miller was one of the premier pass-catching tight ends in the AFC. Now, he’s practically invisible in the Seahawks offense. What gives?

The positives? Yeah, there were some:

• The offensive line was not horrible. Sure, they could have been better but they didn’t get creamed by DeMarcus Ware and they actually opened some holes for Marshawn Lynch.

• Lynch. Yeah, that’s more like it as he recorded the Seahawks’ first 100-yard rushing performance of the season. The Beast Mode was in full effect, and he ran for 135 yards and the team’s only TD.

• Mike Williams. The often-injured receiver got back on the field today and had three catches. You can imagine a healthy Williams with Sidney Rice and Miller being formidable trio.

So I’ll throw it open for your comments while Eric gathers info in the locker room. Share with us what you’re tired and give us your analysis of the Seahawks’ first half of the season.
