Hey guys, I've finally decided to jump into the sbnation blog world and support our Seattle Seahawks. Been a fan since 1996 when I went to four games in the kingdome. We've got a nice community here, I like what I see, and I hope to try and contribute good things in the future. I already make a lot of videos on my youtube channel regarding sports (I think I have over 600 now), so we'll see how much I end up writing, but I think this could be fun.
Some random thoughts through the first five games...
I'd like to see Deon Butler get more action, I think this is a passing oriented team in terms of talent. I feel very comfortable with our top four receivers being on the field on key plays and I'm teetering on the edge of comfortable with Obomanu. I'd really enjoy seeing a lot of 4 WR sets, but my concern is Gregg Knapp has always been a run first playcaller, will likely continue to be, and may continue to not utilize our receiver-slanted talent on offense. Not gonna lie, don't like what I've seen on Knapp so far.
Could someone who tracks such things or knows such things figure out which players in coverage were to blame for the five touchdown passes our team has given up so far this year? I like to know these things but few people keep track of it.
Finally, I just want to say I'm really grateful for having an offensive line of backups that can hold up in NFL action, even if it's just against the terrible Jacksonville pass rush. There are other teams out there that lose one OL starter and turn into matadors, we've thrown a lot of people out there and I don't recall getting particularly mad at any of them.
