I just want to know why Hartsock was in there on a passing play



To disguise the play as a typical goal line run.

He was wide open. Watching the replay is painful

The call was right, just not every other "call" he called all game wasn't.

I have no issue with the call.

The Seahawks had shown on previous plays that they expected, and were prepared to deal with, a quarterback run. A better thrown pass on that play and we win.

Plenty of issues with the current offensive approach in general, but not that play call



I agree somewhat. Seattle was really fast, and they had already stopped one run by Cam.

The bottom line is our qb should be able to make that throw, even while on the move. He screwed up. All we can hope is that he learns from the experience and moves on.

You people do realize Hartsock was open on happenstance, right? The pass notwithstanding. It was NOT the right call. This, the 'end justifies the means' crowd is baffling.

Calling a pass play with Smitty on the bench, a yard out.......asking a QB who struggled mightily all day with short passes to go to last optiom in Hartsock was the right call?

Trusting your franchise QB to make a 5 yard pass is the wrong call?

I hate Chud. I hate the offense he's installed. That play in particular? No problem with it because it worked. Well, it would have if Cam hadn't completely fuged things up.

That is a throw that any QB in the NFL should be able to make, much less one who is supposed to revolutionize the position.

Happenstance? He ran a route and got open. Cam then tried to roll the football to him for some reason.

Is every play when someone gets open happenstance?

You could say that about almost any play call honestly.

I don't care for the play-call but we're going to have a real problem getting anyone to admit it was the wrong call when there was a receiver wide-fuging-open that Cam just missed getting the ball to.

He was so open that Olsen threw is hands up assuming it was a TD as soon as Cam released the ball.
