Our Seattle Seahawks have had quite the year thus far. We’ve talked a lot about it already. No need to drudge ALL of it up right this second. So, with that in mind, let’s simplify things a bit. Offensive line is pretty much the most important position group on an NFL roster. The success of the group, and the continuity found within that group, essentially dictates nearly every element a team must consummate to earn consistent victories in the league. For example, a struggling team with a talented offensive line can buy time for an inconsistent or young QB to find rhythm and even a bit of luck. Right now our talented and audacious squad needs both rhythm and luck, like the understudies at a town hall production of Footloose. Maybe the return of the capable but no doubt sore Abraham Lucas spells a bruised up line and helps Geno finds a bit more of that magic most of us believe he still possesses. Let’s go, Abe! Welcome back.

Seahawks WR DK Metcalf says he's forgotten Week 1 loss to Rams - The Seattle Times
Almost nothing was memorable about Seattle's season-opening 30-13 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sept. 10 at Lumen Field. It was a game in which the Seahawks were outscored 23-0 in the second half and outgained for the game 426-180. About the only thing anyone in Seattle was left talking about was an incident late in the game when Seahawks receiver DK Metcalf pushed Rams cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon from behind, then drew a penalty for taunting during the stoppage in play while Witherspoon was being tended to on the field. Metcalf was later fined for the push of Witherspoon and the taunting penalty for a total of almost $22,000.
