Good lord, did you see how Bell and Kalil got destroyed? That's what they would have been running into.

Do you see how Olsen assumes it's a TD before the duck hit the ground?

Can't really see it on that gif, but to be sure Kalil and Bell were pass blocking and the DT's were firing off... not really a valid comparison. Had our O line been run blocking, the outcome may have been different, hard to say.

We could argue about the power running thing, but there's no point... the offense with our $120 million backfield is built to be a running offense... I mean, what other weapons have we got, aside from Smitty than our RBs. Olsen was completely forgotten this past week.



I believe the team forgot about the most important aspect of a running team...the offensive line.

Maybe true, I honestly don't know enough about player evaluations to say... someone said Gross is undersized... ok. Kalil is one of the best centers in football... Silatolu is a rookie, but huge... Bell has played well, and yeah, Hangarter has not... we tried to keep Otah around and he was awesome for the run, but just couldn't stay healthy.

Aside from not putting eleventy billion $ into RBs, (which is also a moot discussion at this point) what else could have been done?

By Chud's own admission, the defense fooled him. They aligned differently than he expected. If you watch the replay GIF from above Cam had to juke, then throw back across his body, around a defender. Possible...yes. Probable not really. It was a low percentage play call from the beginning. Cam didn't make a play there, but to bash the kid, because he didn't bail Chud out is moronic. That's putting it nicely.

When I look at the line I see two solid guys and 3 weak links (for different reasons). That is not the path you would think a team would want to take to build their franchise around a young QB.

A good play call doesn't have the QB under heavy pressure in a must win situation.


because the play was written up so the QB falls under pressure?

It was a good call. Poorly executed by several players.

short and goal game on the line its what team wants it more, you run and pound it in. Too many things can go wrong on a pass play esp on 4th down. Your team either has the will to punch it in or you lose. Seattle wanted it more.

Considering our offensive prowes last season, the fact that we drafted a road grader OG this draft, and our previously mentioned high dollar backfield, what else could have been done?

Obviously Otah was a huge disappointment but that's water under the bridge...

I would have preferred Cam going over the top..
But, cam had an open guy in the end zone, and couldn't get him the damn ball.

Cam's fault, not the coach.

OL play had a hand in it as well. They were Swiss cheese all day. Execution by 11 starters and the play works.

probably should have gone with 6 OL.

If nobody is open, Chud has no reason to say it was the right call. It's bullshit. He's simply saying, "fug you, somebody was open, blame Cam's throw, not me". No, asshole. I'm blaming you. You have a huge QB and you have 2 powerful runningbacks. No. Excuse. At. All. Power that poo in there.

It seems like most good coaches take responsibility for losses even when it's not their fault. Ours seem to do the opposite.
