Sunday the surprising 2019 season for the Seattle Seahawks came to an abrupt halt on the road against the nemesis Green Bay Packers. The Hawks and Packers have had some memorable finishes in their postseason matchups over the year, including the 2014 NFC Championship game comeback led by Russell Wilson and Matt Hasselbeck’s “We want the ball and we’re gonna score” proclamation that didn’t work out so well in overtime of a Wild Card game following the 2003 season.

That said, the matchup Sunday brought several memorable moments on both sides of the ball. To start off, let’s take a look at how fans enjoyed Shaquem Griffin’s first career sack (Author’s note: Interestingly, Griffin’s teammate on the defensive front and fellow 2018 draft pick Rasheem Green also recorded his first career sack on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the Thursday Night Football game between the two teams in 2018.)

And, as has become the norm over the past two seasons, wide receiver Tyler Lockett had himself a phenomenal day.

However, in spite of everything Lockett did, the game came down to a 3rd & long completion to Jimmy Graham. Or, more accurately, it came down to where the refs spotted the ball after Graham caught it.

But, wait. The yellow line isn’t put on your TV screen by the league. It’s added by some guy in the production truck who may or may not have an unobstructed and clear view of where the first down line to gain actually rests.

So, whether Graham was short or not, at this point it is irrelevant. What is not short is the upcoming offseason, as the Seahawks won’t be back in training camp for more than six more months, with their regular season opener likely to be played eight months from today.

Settle in, get comfy, and enjoy the coverage from Field Gulls of
