Clayton: Breaking down the Seahawks after their preseason opener

710 ESPN Seattle 16 August, 2021 - 02:38pm

Problems were many in the first half of the Seahawks’ 20-7 preseason loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Saturday.

Seahawks preseason opener: Gallant on standouts | Rost’s takeaways

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll didn’t play 31 players, third-most in the league in the first week of preseason games. The offensive line looked line it was thrown together, and you could tell how uncomfortable the linemen were. Center Kyle Fuller was the only potential starter who played. He looked good, but with no joint practices and a limited number of padded practices, the line was going to be vulnerable to the Raiders’ defense.

Because of that, you could see that the Seahawks decided just to pass the ball in the first half. They had only three running plays in the first half, including one by quarterback Alex McGough. Geno Smith suffered a concussion, so McGough and Sean Mannion took the rest of the snaps in the game.

Things got better in the second half, though, and the Seahawks made it a competitive game.

Let’s look at the Seahawks’ preseason opener.

• Some good things happened on defense. The Seahawks had four sacks, seven tackles for a loss and five quarterback pressures. Alton Robinson was the star of the show. He was great on pressures and even covered players in pass coverage.

• Running back DeeJay Dallas secured a job on the 53-man roster. He had five rushes for 24 yards and two catches for 45 yards, including a 43-yard touchdown reception.

• Freddie Swain continues to look like the Seahawks’ third receiver. He caught three passes for 29 yards and looked good running routes.

• No surprise but sixth-round pick Stone Forsythe was up and down at left tackle. He tended to get out of sync in pass blocking. While he did some good things, he showed his inexperience in his first game in the NFL.

• Ben Burr-Kirven was all over the place filling in at middle linebacker for Bobby Wagner, who was given the day off. He had six tackles and six assists, most on the team. Cody Barton also showed a lot of good things, making two sacks.

Darrell Taylor looked great in his first NFL action. He started at right defense end and did a good job. Carlos Dunlap said during the game he needs to teach Taylor that once he gets around a block to cut a tighter angle to get to the quarterback. Taylor should be an important player in the Seahawks’ pass-rush rotation.

• Ahkello Witherspoon looked great at cornerback while Tre Flowers struggled on two plays in coverage.

• On a different topic, Tyler Lockett was No. 76 in the NFL Top 100, which is voted on by players. Safety Quandre Diggs was 78th. You would have to anticipate the Seahawks will have at least six in the top 100, as we’re still waiting to see where Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner, Jamal Adams and DK Metcalf fall. At No. 67 on the list was K.J. Wright, who is still looking for a home.

Seahawks waive six, sign one to get roster to 85

Field Gulls 16 August, 2021 - 01:47pm

The Hawks had apparently already made up their mind regarding the moves they would make, and they have already officially announced those moves, which included releasing six players while adding one. The six players released were:

Opening up six roster spots left Seattle with just 84 players on the roster, meaning they had one open spot which they have filled by signing defensive end Alex Tchangam. Tchangam went undrafted in 2020 after having only started playing football in junior college before transferring to Colorado prior to the 2018 season.

Three scary preseason Seahawks trends that could last into the season

Preseason games are meaningless, of course. But if Seahawks trends from recent years roll over into the 2021 preseason, that could be very bad. I get it. You can only take so much from preseason games as the starters don’t play and there is no individual team scheme.

For instance, the Seahawks did not go into their first preseason game of 2021 thinking, “This is how we need to beat Las Vegas.” Instead, they were looking at putting young or unproven players in spots and positions where Pete Carroll and company wanted to see how those players would react or wanted to see what athleticism they had.

But a lot of times teams trend the same way based on overall scheme no matter if the game is one in the preseason or the regular season or the playoffs. There could be an argument that a seed of the season is planted in preseason, grown in the regular season and comes to fruition in the playoffs.

If what Seattle is planting so far this preseason is going to grow in the regular season then the 2021 regular season is in real trouble. And no, I am not overreacting. The same issues that the Seahawks had against the Raiders are the same problems Seattle has had at times in recent years.

I will tell you what I would love to see: Gus Bradley coming back to the Seahawks as the defensive coordinator. That isn’t going to happen. Seattle has Ken Norton, Jr., as the DC and he is staying. And the problems he has as DC are staying too.
