2009 NFL Draft Review - Round 2 |
7. (38) John Carlson, TE, Seattle Seahawks Role: Currently on I.R. but looks on the outs in Seattle after they brought in Zach Miller. Impact: Had that rookie year where his athletic ability caught teams off guard. Since then? Well he’s regressed as a receiver, but he can’t block. He is not what you’re looking for in a tight end. Grade: C-

Three to Focus on - Seahawks @ Cowboys |
The Dallas Cowboys have been one of the most confusing teams to figure out, as they have had three close losses to good teams. A blowout victory over the St. Louis Rams made it look like they might be a very good team, but then again they were blown out by the Eagles. A few weeks back, it looked like the Seattle Seahawks were getting things together by keeping up with the Atlanta Falcons and beating the New York Giants, but then again they put up three points against the Cleveland Browns and lost badly to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Analysis Notebook: Week 8 |
With plenty of worthy Week 8 plays to choose from, PFF Analysts Sam Monson and Ben Stockwell select three that stood out to them during their weekly tape review work. Watching every play of every game so closely, it’s understandable that the little things that set certain plays apart bring smiles to their faces. That idea holds true again as a couple of clever designs – one on an interior blitz, the other an ill-gotten but entertaining pass completion – are joined by a perfectly-executed run in this week’s Notebook.

Only in Seattle would we be talking about "trap games" right after a two-game losing streak, but I think the phrase is apt as we approach a road contest in Dallas against the Cowboys. Ten quick observations:

Like the Seahawks, the Cowboys also are struggling this season | - Sports
They head into this weekend with a losing record having dropped three of their last four games, and many believe quarterback issues are at the heart of their struggles. And no, we're not talking about the Seattle Seahawks, but rather their opponent Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys. After a losing season in 2010, the Cowboys fully expected to rebound and be among the NFC elite this year, but so far it has been an up-and-down season for Dallas, which sits at 3-4 as it prepares to host the 2-5 Seahawks.

But don’t be too surprised if he can’t withstand the same volume and ferocity of hits we’ve become accustomed to seeing. Coach Pete Carroll indicated Friday that while Jackson is healthy enough to play, he’s still a ways from being back to where he was pre-injury. "He does not feel great," Carroll said Friday. "He’s barely making it through practice."

Contain DeMarco Murray. The Seahawks are allowing a league-low 3.2 yards per carry this season, but Murray is a rookie who is just two weeks removed from a 253-yard rushing performance against St. Louis. That's the highest single-game total by any player in the league this season. In fact, it's the highest by a lot. Chicago's Matt Forte - who gained 205 yards against Carolina - is the only other player in the league with a 200-yard rushing performance this season.
