Blinkscout Game 9 analysis ... Seahawks

November 18, 2020 03:56PM
I am always confident playing the Seahawks. We've just made a habit of beating them. The one game we didn't recently (that cost us a playoff spot) I thought Russell played better than I'd ever seen him play against us and GZ missed a 47 yarder that would have won it ...

They had been running on offense overdrive and I expected our DBs to shut them down.

The Truly Amazing

1) Darious Williams. I felt cool at first when he was being mentioned because I loved his skillset at UAB and thought he had a shot to make a roster. But I'm hard pressed to think of another undrafted CB having the year he is having. He should be a pro bowler this year even as an unknown. There's another thread that shows that he has the best (41.4) QB rating among all CBs, but it needs to be noted that 4th and 5th place were in the high 50s. That's a 20 point spread in the top 5 players. His acceleration to and through these diving breakups and INTs are stunning, and his field awareness seems to be improving also. Im no longer interested in even discussing contracts for the "big 3" ... I'm only concerned with trying to sneak a cap friendly extension to him before his market value prices him out of our range. I figure we can tender him with a second rounder (after next year at almost no cost) and get an even higher pick for him when a huge offer comes through, but I'd love to get him a big guarantee and signing bonus NOW and spread the damage out over six years. I'm sure the brass is having this discussion also.
What was the best play? The peel off TE INT? The PBU on Lockett in the end zone? The diving INT?

The Great

2) Floyd's sacks. First off, sacking Russell isn't easy. Second, he's outpacing my guess at 10.5 sacks for the year for him, and IMO is handling the run just fine. I may be out of my depth here, as I didn't watch him in Chicago, but it seems like he has an extra move or two in comparison to the beginning of the year. I expect a 3rd round comp for him too in a few years.

3) Terrell Lewis getting more comfy. I like the sacks, I'm not worried about those ... I like him getting more snaps.

4) Ramsey on Metcalf. I had a ton of fun watching them show the inability of Metcalf to uncover. It was satisfying.

5) Our safeties. As I said before, I don't think we've had a better DB room ever. Multiple injuries, next man up, even Nick Scott, gets it done.

The Good

6) Josh Reynolds putting up good tape. He seems to finally be comfortable at this level and is playing well. Happy for him, and for our 3rd rounder in 2022.

7) Noteboom in and serviceable. Of course we'll see how he plays when they start game planning for him ... but it was a hopeful start.

8) Akers getting more comfy.

9) A Shawn getting on the field.

10) Hekker.

The Bad

11) I didn't like the rushing TD by Collins. We didn't seem ready to tackle him.

12) Don't like losing Rapp during this stretch of games. We're asking a lot of our depth players. Don't get me wrong, I have faith that Juju Hughes can come in and get meaningful snaps ... I'd just rather have my full compliment against Tom Brady and Kyler Murray.

13) Goff missed a TD throw to Higbee to go underneath ... why he wasn't ready to throw the six pointer I am not sure, but he can't miss those.

14) DH missed running lanes twice.

15) Another Everett drop.

The Ugly

16) Goff's like 50th fumble.

17) We are a top ten NFL team with a shot at a deep playoff run, and we don't have a kicker.


18) Had to get this in this week because I found our LB. Collin Miller of Nebraska. 6-3 240, smart, quick to diagnose and fast. And, my favorite, arrives on time and angry to wrap up with solid technique. If he wasn't on Nebraska he'd be a household name. If I'm missing anything on him let me know, I'm seeing a 3rd or 4th round pick likely, as I think he'll test and interview really well and get a senior bowl invite.

19) I see a lot of quality safeties. Drafting a 4th or 5th rounder every year should make it so we never have to pony up to keep one.

20) Kinda seeing us drafting some small speedster KOR to be our 4th WR. They seem to be plentiful this year. And we have legitimate targets at TE if one of our top 3 WRs goes down.

21) Zaven Collins of Tulsa ... if he slides Im taking him at 64.

22) The Notre Dame line had a great game against Clemson, I'm watching all of them.

23) An OT is needed at some point, not necessarily to replace Whit ... just because Boom only has another year after this. I see some promising second level talent and some guys who could slide to the end of round 2 as well.

Okay, Ill break there. Thoughts and questions welcome.
