You and me, we are probably in the same row boat: what’s the deal with our Seattle Seahawks’ run defense? The Steelers rushed for most of their yardage before half, and ended with a smidge over the 200 mark. Adjustments were made, and yet our squad could not finish tackles, miscommunicated somewhat on defense, and at times, looked downright bewildered. We all have questions, and we’d like some answers. Monday morning is for instant reactions and hot takes. We’ll spend the week reviewing the tape and presenting evidence for our hypothesis. Field Gulls will be here to help guide and soothe your savage soul. Go ‘Hawks!
