Hawks Playbook Podcast Episode 89 Seahawks Ride Short Week to Face Packers
Bill and Keith welcome you back to the Hawks Playbook Podcast. In this episode, we poor over the Seahawks performance and loss on the road vs The Los Angeles Rams. While we played close and we were in it until the last drive, playing from behind doesn’t suit this Seahawks team well, and as we have stated many times, the margin of error for this team is too small. None-the-less, there was a lot to like about many individual performances and even the team as a whole, but the Seahawks lost the game 36-31, even though Seattle lost for the first time in franchise history when rushing for over 250 yards on the ground. While the offense seemed to do just enough, the defense could not slow down the Rams prolific offense. The Rams simply were too much for the Seahawks for the second time this season.
We also looked ahead in the schedule, starting with tonight’s home match up with the Green Bay Packers. Seattle is 7-1 overall on Thursday night games under Pete Carroll, and they certainly hope to continue that level of performance tonight. Seattle will get Chris Carson and DJ Fluker back on offense, but will likely miss KJ Wright on defense. As Keith points out in the show, maybe missing KJ tonight is for the best. It is clear that his knee is not 100% or even close, and that is having a direct impact on the quality of his play. Overall however, Keith and Bill do like Seattle’s chances against the 4-4-1 Packers to stay in the hunt for the playoffs.
