Seattle's offensive line has to be considered one of the best in football. The factis  that our Dline manhandled them. Most QB's would have made A lot of mistakes under that pressure but Russell Wilson's best trait seems to be not getting rattled. He played smart and that kept Seattle hanging around until our D got tired. Surprise, Russell is good under pressure. I don't expect that from Manuel.

 

This is wrong. If there's one weakness on Seattle, it's their offensive line - just because guys like Colin Cowherd assume that because the Seahawks are elite, they must have an elite offensive line doesn't make it true. Okung and Unger are elite talents, but the rest of the line is mediocre at best with the LG platoon of James Carpenter and Paul McQuistan being one of the worst in the league.

Buffalo Bills: Left tackle Cordy Glenn was the only left tackle with 30 or more pass blocks to not allow a single pressure.

fuging Hurney. I'm pretty sure 75% of the fans wanted Glenn at our pick in the 2nd round. Could have plugged him in a LT this season and swung Gross over to RT. Probably would do wonders for our o-line.

Also, neither Alexander nor any other defensive player needs to do anything stoopid and get ejected. Frank would have helped greatly if not ejected in just keeping the rotation going and keeping the players fresh, both young and old. Defense needs to be at full strength in full numbers.


An I wrong in thinking Alexander is out this game since he was ejected last game?

Only if the league decides to suspend him a game for his outburst. So far I haven't heard of that happening.

If that's the case, several players from the GB - SF game, like Clay Matthews, needs to be suspended.

 

His was worse than Alexander's and he didn't even get flagged for it.

Biggest concern is Spiller...can't let him see open space. We don't have anyone that can hang if he does.

I am not sure Davis at this stage of his career can hang with Spiller in the open field...Spiller is nasty. Very overlooked IMO what he has shown he can do as of late.

I rewatched some of the buffalo game and a couple things stood out.
-Their offense made a lot of early mistakes, which is understandable for a young qb. We need to be able to capitalize on these mistakes. They had false starts, fumbles and manuel forced some throws downfield. I think the pressure this dline can generate will lead to a lot of forced throws by a rookie qb.

-early in the game, buffalo also ran a few screens and a lot of crossing patterns. I like our chances against these plays.. they take a little time to develop and I dont know that the bills offense will have that time, and when they do, I trust our linebackers to get the job done.

this may be a close game, but I think our d makes the difference.

Spiller's yards per carry just automatically went up by at least 1 yard when we signed Fua.

Yep. But instead we got a DII project.

Alright well I'm not going to pull up where each guy on their oline was drafted and all of that because they're not my team so I  don't care enough. Every commentator I hear talks up there run blocking and oline as a strength. My main point was that I don't expect Manuel to handle the pressure as well as Wilson did, most rookie's turn the ball over under duress and some turnovers and short field position would help our offense break out of it's funk.
