I also saw 3 crucial drops by Olsen. It didn't look like his head was in the game to me, his routes were okay, his run after the catch was awful and his concentration on catching the ball was far from the standard he is held to.

Two of the three were perfect throws that would have put us in the strike zone.

Thank you Sir. This is what we need. I think we are becoming a damn good team. The way Smitty was quick to chew into Armond Smith told me one thing; the players know we are on the cusp and do not want any scrub messing it up. Even the look on CJ's face.

That's the thing, football is a game of matchups. They did a nice job locking up our receivers for most of the game so all we had left was the run game and plays to Olsen. He made some nice catches but also cost us by dropping passes he normally would not have.

You really can't blame the coaches for this one at all IMO. Shula called a good game but its not his fault when players drop crucial passes and Sherman forced that fumble on Deangelo. We were always in position to keep drives alive but execution killed us.

That Josh Thomas mishap was the turning point.

A lot of guys are still out of sync in the first week. I expect a lot cleaner game next week.

My opinion is the fumble on the punt is what cost us the game. Not D-will's.

Even though they did not score we lost a possession and it completely changed the field position game. We never had field position better than our own 20 in the second half because of that.

I'm glad someone picked up on that. CJ's reaction to the second smith penalty was priceless. I thought if #89 wasn't gonna kill Smith that CJ would have been first in line.

I also noticed Cam on that touchdown pass to Smitty.  Smitty was not his first look.  He was going to throw the fade and saw that had drawn double coverage which allowed a small window to Steve.  Cam put a laser beam in there.  That's a play that Cam didn't make last year.  He knew where all his guys were and he reacted to the defense without thinking about it.  

 

He was ahead of the play.  As soon as he saw that double coverage he was already throwing to where Smitty was going to be.  Awesome play.

 

I really think the game plan was so conservative in the downfield passing because of how good Seattle secondary is.  Cam was being smart.  We had the lead most of the time.  Don't take a chance when you can check it down and move the chains.  That's the biggest thing he's been missing in his career.  Next week against the Bills we'll still run it but you'll see a lot more play action deep balls.   (If the O-line can block for the time needed)

Olsen and Smith both have to play great for us to have a chance against any good team. Olsen had a bad game, but thank god we knows he's better than that.
