No, the referees didn’t cost the Seahawks a Week 7 victory

No, the referees didn’t cost the Seahawks a Week 7 victory

they never call this anymore | Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports They didn’t help, but come on: Seattle choked, too In the frustrated fan’s eternal search for the perfect scapegoat after a painful loss, no target feels quite as satisfying as the hapless referee. While I’m in no position to take the high road — retire stripes— John Skellington Fraley (@johndavidfraley) October 26, 2020 — a little separation between game day and the Seahawks’ many, many, many, oh so very many missteps Sunday night allows for a clearer thought process. The referees made some bad snap...

Chris Carson’s mid-foot sprain not considered serious

Chris Carson’s mid-foot sprain not considered serious

Billy Hardiman-USA TODAY Sports The Seahawks suffered a number of losses in Week 7 against the Cardinals, including the game itself. Among those losses was running back Chris Carson, who exited the game in the first half after playing 15 snaps and did not return. After the game, Pete Carroll told reporters Carson had suffered a mid-foot sprain and would require an MRI in order to know the severity. While the results of the MRI are not yet known, Monday morning began with some optimism around Carson’s health, with the Seattle Times’ Bob Condotta reporting that Carson’s mid-foot...

Alton Robinson plays 7 snaps as Seahawks fail to register a QB hit

Photo by Christian Petersen/ The Seahawks dropped their first game of the season in Week 7, as a game-winning field goal in overtime earned the Cardinals the victory. The wild, back-and-forth game saw players absolutely exhausted by the end, hands on hips and constant rotation up front. We’ll get into various notes from the snap counts below, after the full look. It was nearly an even split between Greg Olsen and Will Dissly coming out of the bye week, at 62% to 58%. It could have been the result of an increase in two tight end sets or a growing role for...

DK Metcalf did a very Julio Jones type of thing

DK Metcalf did a very Julio Jones type of thing

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports DK Metcalf’s early career is incredible. The second year receiver for the Seattle Seahawks has gained comparisons to the best wideouts to ever play the game this year. Among them, the physical similarities to Julio Jones have stood out. On Sunday night, in a game that saw Metcalf largely quiet otherwise, he did perhaps the most Julio Jones thing imaginable. Certainly the appropriate headline for this play. https://t.co/reIdhLJhee— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) October 26, 2020 Metcalf ran down one of the best safeties in the game in Budda Baker...

Cigar Thoughts, Game 6: I hate Cardinals week

Cigar Thoughts, Game 6: I hate Cardinals week

Photo by Christian Petersen/ The Arizona Cardinals overcame a game-long deficit to steal an overtime win against the previously unbeaten Seattle Seahawks. I hate Cardinals week; it’s too weird. And it sucks that it happens twice a year. How weird? Well, the home team has only won one of the last eleven matchups, which is honestly one of the most bonkers head-to-head stats I’ve ever heard for any rivalry. So on the one hand, I guess it’s good for Seattle that this game was in Arizona but on the other, that stadium has been an absolute minefield for the Seahawks. That field has not...

Cardinals 37 Seahawks 34: Winners and Losers

Cardinals 37 Seahawks 34: Winners and Losers

Photo by Norm Hall/ It’s been coming. The Seattle Seahawks can’t just play heart attack football every week and expect to win. They probably don’t want to do that but their awful defense puts them in position almost all the time, and the offense chipped in with their own critical mistakes. A 20-7 lead became a 37-34 loss and it was deserved. No more undefeated run. They were never going to go 19-0. Maybe 18-1 will suffice. Let’s get to Winners and Losers. Winners Tyler Lockett He’d been quiet for two games running and then uncorked a career-best 15 catches for 200 yards and...

Chris Carson suffers mid-foot sprain, will require MRI

Photo by Christian Petersen/ As always, the Seattle Seahawks did not get out of Arizona without seeing a few players go down with injuries against the Cardinals. Over the course of the grueling overtime loss, Chris Carson, Shaquill Griffin, and Travis Homer all suffered injuries that forced them out of the game. Speaking to reporters after Seattle dropped their first game of the season to the Cards, Pete Carroll provided what information he could on Carson, Griffin, and Homer’s health—with more clarity sure to come later in the week. Per Carroll, Carson suffered a mid-foot sprain...

Russell Wilson breaks Matt Hasselbeck’s Seahawks record for completions

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Entering the Seattle Seahawks’ Week 7 game against the Arizona Cardinals, Russell Wilson was tied with Matt Hasselbeck for the most completions in franchise history, with 2,559. On the very first play of the game, Wilson hit Tyler Lockett for a beautiful 34-yard completion, breaking his tie with Hasselbeck to take sole possession of the Seahawks franchise record for completions. Tyler Lockett rewards the Russell Wilson dime with a one-handed SNAG pic.twitter.com/0k5WZvgwDn— PFF (@PFF) October 26, 2020 Seattle’s all-time completions record was...

Cardinals 37 Seahawks 34 (OT): Collapse

Photo by Norm Hall/ Undefeated no more. Russell Wilson had an astonishing 1st half but he otherwise threw three brutal interceptions to offset his three touchdowns to Tyler Lockett. The Seattle Seahawks drop to 5-1 on the season after blowing a 34-24 lead to Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals (5-2). A 37-34 overtime classic that sees Seattle’s NFC West lead trimmed to .5 game and with a brutal next four games ahead, the outlook on the season is a bit shakier than if they had won. 1st Half Russell Wilson aired it out right away with a 35-yard dime to Tyler Lockett, who made a...

With Baker racing down the sideline, headed to the endzone for six, Metcalf went into a full sprint and caught up to Baker, making a touchdown-saving tackle.
