to the Los Angeles Rams http://www.seahawksfootballauthentics.com/bobby-wagner-jersey-authentic , but this was by far the most impressive performance by the offense all season. Seattle’s running game, famously moribund last season, has come alive over the past two games. Chris Carson had an impressive 116 yards on 19 carries, while Mike Davis chipped in 68 yards on 12 carries and a touchdown. Even Tyler Lockett had a 6-yard carry on a pitch.Notably absent from the running game box score? Russell Wilson.Yes, for the first time in Wilson’s 113 games (101 regular season, 12 postseason) with the Seattle Seahawks, Wilson did not run the ball even once. Not by design — he absolutely had opportunities to keep on read-option plays but chose not to — and not through scrambles. Zero rushes, zero yards. Now there is an asterisk here in that he had two rushing attempts for -1 yard against the Dallas Cowboys, but one was a kneeldown and the other was the fumbled exchange with Rashaad Penny. This does however mark the official “0” in the stat sheet for #3.Through five games, Wilson has just 11 attempts for 42 yards. He has been battling a hamstring injury, but he sure looked fine when running downfield to help block for his running backs. The season is still young, but it sure doesn’t look like the 2012-2014 era of Wilson running/scrambling is coming back any time soon, if ever.Colts 19 Seahawks 17 - Winners and Losers from Seattle’s 2018 preseason debut The Seattle Seahawks got their 2018 NFL preseason underway with a 19-17 home loss to the Indianapolis Colts, but who cares about the result? Seahawks football is back and I couldn’t be happier to be writing about game-action for a second season here on Field Gulls. The opening drive touchdown led by Russell Wilson got my juices flowing, and the crowd did its job to stay engaged and loud even when the game devolved into your typical preseason mess in the latter stages.Here’s a quick rundown of my winners and losers from Thursday night’s showdown at CenturyLink Field. WinnersChris CarsonWelcome back, Chris! Playing against the very team that ended his rookie season prematurely Youth Will Dissly Jersey , Carson ran for 26 yards on 4 carries, showing off spin moves, cutbacks, and power to convert that 4th and 1. He looked healthy and operating as he did in 2017, and that’s great news.Tight ends as pass-catchersNick Vannett caught Seattle’s only offensive touchdown, while rookie Will Dissly had a pair of grabs for 19 yards. Dissly also showed some good work in run blocking, but I’m much more interested in seeing how valuable both men can be as receiving targets. Vannett in particular might be fighting for a roster spot.Rasheem GreenThe third-round rookie, deemed to be Michael Bennett’s replacement, sacked Andrew Luck in the 1st half and then teamed up with fellow rookie Jacob Martin to get a half-sack. He also hustled excellently on the late fumble recovery touchdown to prevent Brad Kaaya from easily recovering the botched snap. I am so stoked watching him perform, and he might have been the biggest winner of them all.Shaquem GriffinFour tackles in four snaps in his first defensive series, and a final total of nine tackles (six solo) with one tackle-for-loss on a running play. It’s great to have the Griffin Brothers reunited, and you have to love how Shaquem was flying all over the field throughout the game. He’ll definitely be a quality contributor at linebacker and also on special teams.Quinton JeffersonJefferson was disruptive as a pass rusher and fared well in run defense, as the Seahawks are badly in need of any depth at defensive line. He did walk off with a limp after an injury in the 2nd quarter, but it did not look too serious.Michael DicksonWow can that guy punt! A 61-yard blast that forced a muffed punt, and his first kick as a Seahawk saw him pin the Colts inside their own 20. He had a net average of 50 yards on three punts, and while Jon Ryan didn’t have a bad night http://www.seahawksfootballauthentics.com/duane-brown-jersey-authentic , Dickson was definitely better.Akeem KingHe had impressive coverage skills, including a pass defensed on T.Y. Hilton in the 2nd quarter. King also delivered a big hit on that aforementioned muffed punt, although it was considered to be a “lowering the helmet” penalty.LosersBackup quarterbacksAustin Davis went 4-of-5 for 51 yards, but that one interception was a horrible end-zone throw to Keenan Reynolds, which was easily picked off by Nate Hairston. Rookie QB Alex McGough was apparently struggling throughout training camp, and after a promising early start, McGough tapered off badly and finished 10/13 for just 48 yards, often defaulting to checkdowns and not showing much in the way of pocket presence. Davis should still be considered the favorite to keep his backup spot. Third-string offensive lineMcGough was only sacked twice, but he was hurried several other times, and Skyler Phillipps in particular got owned by Hassan Ridgeway on one of McGough’s sacks. Rees Odhiambo also looked like he had some struggles out at left tackle after he filled in for Jamarco Jones.Austin CalitroCalitro had a drive-extending penalty and a horrible missed tackle, as the Colts kicked a field goal to retake the lead in the 3rd quarter. Not good. Unlike Joey Ivie, who was going to be on the Losers list, Calitro didn’t score a touchdown to atone for his errors.Whoever is in charge of Seahawks television productionYellow line for the line of scrimmage and blue line for the first-down marker? Since then? That threw me for a loop early on and hopefully this never appears again.
