Seattle’s biggest weak spot is no surprise.
On Sunday vs. the Dolphins, the offensive line struggled quite a bit. QB Russell Wilson was sacked three times, including one time that ended with his ankle getting stepped on, and hit nine times.
Pro Football Focus graded Mark Glowinski and J’Marcus Webb, the Seahawks’ two guards, at 34.3 and 32.6 respectively in run blocking, “which is a bad omen if they want to build around their inside-zone game.”
On Wednesday Seattle O-line coach Tom Cable expressed his disappointment with the unit, telling reporters they must play better. Seattle had to come back to narrowly beat Miami, 12-10, with Wilson crafting a fantastic TD drive with less than :31 seconds left.
“I thought offensively we were just okay,” Cable said via The Seattle Times. “Just okay.”
He said tackles Garry Gilliam and Bradley Sowell played “Just OK” and that Webb is still learning at his position.
“He had some struggles but I think he’s better this week for sure,” said Cable.
The three times Wilson was sacked last Sunday was during plays he was pressured according to Pro Football Focus. His NFL QB rating dipped to 15.3 and he completed only 33.3 percent of his passes, too, when Miami’s defense was in his face.
