Last week Seahawk tackles struggled mightily against the excellent DEs of the Rams, receivers were not able to get much separation and Wilson wasn't able to target anyone down field accurately. However, Marshawn was in Beast Mode and ran for over 100 yards and the offensive line looked all pro when run blocking.
With the down field passing game about as threatening as a loud fart, where was our play action to keep the defense honest and break open the quick short passes that favor a rookie QB when it comes to ability to execute? The Rams pass rush was obviously effective, especially in the second half, but our run game was solid for all four quarters.
I don't know enough about football to understand what the "big picture" game plan for the Rams game was intended to be, but I was shocked to see Pete Carrol get out-coached so thoroughly at half time, when the Seahawks have shown in the past that they are usually able to make the adjustments they need to change the course of the game for the better.
Where was that "run to set up the pass" we've been hearing about since pre-season? Was it simply bungled execution wise or were they trying to do something else?
