Cheap Authentic Womens Seahawks Russell Wilson Jersey

SEATTLE—Russell Wilson and the Seahawks offense nearly had another magic comeback in them, scoring once to cut a late double-digit deficit to just three points, then getting to the edge of field goal range with seconds left. But unfortunately for Seattle, Blair Walsh’s 52-yard field goal attempt to tie the game fell just short, allowing the Atlanta Falcons to escape Seattle with a 34-31 victory.
Here are five rapid reactions to the Seahawks’ loss, which dropped their record to 6-4: Read
1. Early Miscues Proved Very Costly.
The Seahawks played the Falcons pretty evenly for three-and-a-half quarters of Monday night’s game; the problem was what happened early in the first quarter. Aided by a long return on the opening kickoff, the Falcons opened the scoring with a quick touchdown drive. The Falcons then got the ball back soon after thanks to a Desmond Trufant interception on a Russell Wilson pass intended for Tyler Lockett, and after Trufant’s return gave the Falcons another short field that they turned into a 14-0 lead.
The mistakes continued into the second quarter with Wilson fumbling on a sack, and Falcons defensive end Adrian Clayborn scooped up the loose football and ran it into the end zone for a touchdown.

2. The Falcons Won On Third Down.
The Seahawks defense made a lot of good plays, particularly against the run, holding the Falcons to 89 rushing yards on 30 carries. Unfortunately for Seattle, getting the Falcons into third-and-medium-to-long situations didn’t lead to stops. Of all the telling stats in Monday’s game, none might have been bigger than Atlanta going 9 for 14 on third down, including going 7 for 9 on its five offensive scoring drives.

Read
3. Tyler Lockett And The Return Game Looked Great.
Coming into this game, Lockett and the kick return game had struggled to get going, with Lockett averaging 21.3 yards per kick with a long of 43 yards, which came in the first game of the season.
On Monday, however, Lockett looked again looked like the All-Pro returner he has been in the past, returning five kicks for 197 yards, giving him an average of 39.4 yards per return. It wasn’t enough to produce a victory in this game, but it’s an encouraging sign for special teams play going forward.

4. Mike Davis Looked Good In His Seahawks Debut, But Fell Victim To Seattle’s Continuing Bad Injury Luck.
Following a promotion off the practice squad, Mike Davis started at running back for the Seahawks, and had some impressive moments, including a 13-yard run on a touchdown drive on which he rushed for 21 yards on three carries. Davis also had 41 receiving yards on a pair of screen passes, but unfortunately he injured his groin on the second of those long receptions and was unable to return to the game.
“He got a groin strain, I think it was,” Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said postgame.
And Davis was not the only player to leave the game with an injury, as for the second straight game, the Seahawks were hit hard in that area. Shaquill Griffin left the game in the first quarter to be evaluated for a concussion and did not return to action. That meant Byron Maxwell played almost the entire game at left cornerback less than a week after signing. Right guard Oday Aboushi also left the game early with a shoulder injury and was unable to return. He was replaced by Mark Glowinski.
“He banged his shoulder pretty good,” Carroll said of Aboushi. “Don’t know what the extent is, but enough that he couldn’t go back in.”

Read
5. Jimmy Graham’s Red Zone Success Continued.
Seattle’s first touchdown of the game came from a likely source, with Jimmy Graham hauling in his seventh touchdown in the past six games. All seven of Graham’s touchdowns have come in the red zone, making him the NFL leader in that category.
The touchdown was also the 16th of Graham’s Seahawks career, putting him in a tie with Jerramy Stevens for the most touchdowns by a tight end in franchise history. Graham finished the game with a team-leading seven catches for 58 yards.

Cheap Authentic Football Seahawks Youth Delano Hill Jerseys 2017

NFL training camp gets going in three weeks, and that means the NFL regular season is only two months away. I imagine most of us will be focusing on our San Francisco 49ers during training camp, but it will help to know a little bit about the rest of the league. SB Nation’s 32 NFL sites are putting together basic rundowns of what their team has been up to this offseason.

Each explainer includes free agent additions and departures, trades, draft picks expected to contribute as rookies, biggest offseason addition, biggest storyline, underrated storyline, and notable injuries. The idea is to give you a quick but thorough background on each team. We’ll use these to look at 49ers opponents, but if we have time, I want to try and use all 32 to give us a nice look around the league.

Today, we move on to the Seattle Seahawks, courtesy of our friends at Field Gulls. The 49ers travel to face their division rival in Week 2, and host them in Week 12.

The 49ers have lost seven straight to the Seahawks, and have not won in Seattle since 2011. It was an intense rivalry at times, but it has become decidedly one-sided. The 49ers hung close in their home game last year, but came up short.

The Seahawks remain the standard-bearer in the NFC West. They are heavy favorites to win the NFC West, but the bigger question is how much longer their window is open to win another Super Bowl. Most important right now is that they have put some work into beginning the overhaul of their secondary. They drafted a cornerback and two safeties, and it will be interesting to see how soon they begin the transition away from some of their notable names.

On offense, they signed Austin Davis over Colin Kaepernick to compete for a backup role to Russell Wilson. It was a bit of an up-and-down season for Wilson last year as he was banged up at different points. If he gets hurt, they’re in trouble.

Notable free agent additions: RB Eddie Lacy, OT/OG Luke Joeckel, OG Oday Aboushi, LB Michael Wilhoite, LB Arthur Brown, S/CB Bradley McDougald, QB Austin Davis, LB Terence Garvin, DE Dion Jordan, K Blair Walsh

Notable free agent departures: OT Bradley Sowell, K Steven Hauschka, OT Garry Gilliam, TE Brandon Williams, RB Troymaine Pope, FB Will Tukuafu, DT Tony McDaniel, LB Brock Coyle, DE Damontre Moore

Trades: RB Marshawn Lynch to Raiders

Draft picks expected to contribute as rookies:

DT/5-Tech Malik McDowell – The Seahawks traded down twice and eventually selected McDowell out of Michigan State to be their answer to a lack of an inside pass rush. As a rookie, I expect him to be a regular rotation player on the inside with run-stopper Jarran Reed, their second round pick in 2016. Fans and experts will keep a close eye on McDowell’s effort and commitment early on.

C/G/T Ethan Pocic – Seattle needed to address their league-worst offensive line at some point, and they did so with Pocic at pick 58. He was an All-American center at LSU but is competing at tackle and guard for the Seahawks. If he doesn’t win a starting job it would be mildly surprising, but at worst he’ll be the next man up as a super-sub.

CB Shaquill Griffin – The Seahawks needed someone to play either outside or nickel cornerback following the ACL tear to DeShawn Shead last season and the struggles of Jeremy Lane. Griffin has drawn immediate praise from defensive coordinator Kris Richard as one of the smartest players they’ve had at the position (third round is the earliest Pete Carroll has drafted a corner in his eight seasons with the team) and he’ll probably be the first man up for the slot when Seattle is in nickel. That pretty much makes him a starter as Lane played 71% of snaps last season while playing in the slot. Griffin could also potentially start on the outside opposite of Sherman.

S Delano Hill and S Tedric Thompson – The Seahawks clearly needed depth at safety after they struggled mightily following the broken leg to Earl Thomas last season and the constant bang-ups to Kam Chancellor. Depth is markedly improved but Hill and Thompson may play sparingly as rookies.

DT Naz Jones – Another third round pick (Seattle had four), Jones probably sits and learns for a bit, but Carroll will give him the opportunity to compete for a spot in the rotation.

WR Amara Darboh – The Seahawks drafted Darboh with their last pick in the third round, which is high enough to consider Darboh a player to watch this season. He’s been compared to Jermaine Kearse, a player that a lot of fans want to see replaced immediately as a starter. Darboh, and fellow rookies David Moore (seventh round) and Cyril Grayson (signed before the draft, a track star who never played football at LSU) are all drawing praise in offseason workouts.

Biggest offseason addition:

There are a number of players to seriously consider here, including Joeckel, Lacy, McDowell, and Pocic, but I’ll go with Shaq Griffin. The Seahawks have had the best secondary in the NFL for most of the last five years, but that started to crumble last season. Griffin could become a staple of the next iteration of the Legion of Boom and they may need him immediately. He has the ball skills and athleticism to excel in Carroll’s system, and Carroll is arguably the best defensive backs coach in NFL history. I’ll go with Griffin, followed by Lacy. Seattle needs to get their run game back on track too.

Biggest storyline heading into training camp:

The offensive line’s ability to protect Russell Wilson this year. The o-line was the biggest story for all the wrong reasons in 2016, but the additions of Joeckel, Aboushi, and Pocic, plus the hopeful maturation of Germain Ifedi and George Fant, could push it to at least getting out of the cellar. Wilson doesn’t need much to work with to stay on his feet, as he’s one of the most athletic QBs in the league, but he needs more than they gave him last year when he suffered three notable injuries. As Wilson goes, so do the Seahawks. Plus it wouldn’t hurt to open up more lanes for Lacy, Thomas Rawls, and secret superstar C.J. Prosise.

Under-the-radar storyline heading into training camp:

I would keep an eye on the role that newly-signed safety Bradley McDougald plays. The coaches seem very excited about him and the role he’ll play in 2017, so I think there’s reason for optimism that he could become a key player and a fan favorite almost immediately. McDougald flew under the radar during his three-and-change seasons with the Buccaneers and signed a one-year deal in Seattle, but he could be just the type of guy who was bottled up and needs the right system to truly fly. If he does, there’s a good chance the Seahawks won’t be able to keep him and he’ll be one-and-done.

Notable injuries heading into training camp:

Seattle fans have kept close tabs on the broken legs of Earl Thomas and Tyler Lockett. Both seem on track for Week 1. DeShawn Shead (ACL) will probably start the season on PUP but could be a huge boost for the second half of the season. C.J. Prosise, Thomas Rawls, and Eddie Lacy are slated to be the running backs; none are dealing with specific injuries right now that should keep them out for Week 1, but all have extensive injury histories and that’s a concern that fans hope doesn’t pop up this season with much regularity.
