What an important game.

The Seattle Seahawks flipped the script and decided to take an hour before finding any groove on offense, while the defense held the San Francisco 49ers to very little success.

Here’s the snap counts from Week 4:

Offensive Observations:

  1. Cedric Ogbuehi played a near-complete game in the absence of both Jamarco Jones and Brandon Shell, according to PFF, he more than held his own against a tough defensive line.
  2. Will Dissly ties DK Metcalf for the bulk of offense. He’s still not as active in the pass game as many would like, but he remains a mainstay in this scheme, and actually continues to play really well. He has zero drops this year, and his was among the best blocks on the Alex Collins touchdown.
  3. Speaking of which, a 50-50 split between Collins and Chris Carson! Don’t know what’s going on with Carson, but it’s not awesome. Collins presence is very helpful at this point.

Defensive Observations:

  1. Jordyn Brooks remains in some sort of mini-doghouse; though he played much better on Sunday. 50 snaps is the new normal for him, and there’s enough talent on this roster to make it reasonable that remains for the time being. I at least feel confident that he might not be being punished anymore.
  2. Sidney Jones 100% at the left, DJ Reed 100% back at the right. Your thoughts? It was not tragic, at least.
  3. Carlos Dunlap is having a weird season. He’s been at the top of the defensive line rotation; he’s been near the bottom. Now he’s hurt, so it will be different again this week. Furthermore, he’s playing a ton of time without big numbers. This Sunday was entirely not his fault, as he affected the quarterback timing while being held down into the ground multiple times, but his fluctuation on the field has been something.
  4. Bryan Mone appears to have been eased back in.
  5. Ugo Amadi doubled playtime of Marquise Blair - which shocked me having watched the game - but was nowhere near as effective as Ryan Neal, who is good and should play.
