Seahawks at Rams: Video Retrospective

So that sucked. Whatever is being asked of the offense, what they're getting out of the passing game isn't enough. No one is expecting Aaron Rodgers numbers from the offense, but they're not even cracking Alex Smith levels right now.

James Carpenter's first game back was a pretty good one. He looked decent in both run and pass blocking, and showed a lot of the same quickness that he had before his injury. I know Giacomini isn't the most popular guy in town right now, but I hope Seattle leaves Carpenter at guard. The left side of the line looked strong for most of the game.

Wagner had a little bit of a coming out party, displaying his speed on a couple different plays. We should see more of it as he gets comfortable diagnosing plays, and hopefully it'll start translating to the passing game as well.

One thing that allowed St. Louis to have more success against Seattle's defense than Green Bay did is their balance. Seattle played all out against the pass against Green Bay, using lots of 3 man front sub packages and blitzes. The Rams kept Seattle away from that by running more conventional sets, and Seattle's base defense struggled to get significant pass rush. It should be interesting to see how Seattle handles the Panthers, Patriots and Lions, all offenses that can get up and down the field without flooding it with receivers.
