Seattle, we may have a problem

I’ve been a Matt Hasselbeck fan for quite some time, to a fault at times (he was one of my big sleepers of 2001, and he busted). I’ve also been enamored with the Seattle offense for a while, and with good reason. But I gotta say, I’m a little worried about this offense right now. Hasselbeck’s supporting cast seems to be slipping. The O-Line isn’t what is once was, RB Shaun Alexander is close to reaching the downside of his career, and his receiving corps is a little unsettled with that loser Jerramy Stevens gone. Stevens will be replaced by Marcus Pollard, and there is no way Pollard will give them the vertical threat down the seam Stevens did, so despite Stevens’ drops and issues, the Seahawks will miss him.

    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the first-team offense or the backups. If you’re loo […]

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]
