  • This Seattle loss is at least partially on the starters missing all of preseason.

    Seriously not a single game the entire preseason and this bullshit is what you get. Toes not in bounds, throws a little off, tons of penalties. And we are absolutely terrified of the goal line, apparently. I couldn't believe how much we imploded every time we got down there. They looked slow, rusty and out of rhythm the entire night and I really think it's because they didn't play enough.

    Denver is very clearly the better team. Geno regressed to his old self once he got rattled. And we are better across the board. We gave them half their first downs and like three extra possessions. We had every opportunity to put this away and we shit the bed

    Hackett insisted this was the right call. It's impossible to know if him doing this spared us losing Russ or Chubb or whomever for the season.

    At the end of the day this is a road NFC loss and not that bad in terms of record. But this division is impossible and these kinds of losses hurt you.

    The play calling is leaps and bounds better than what we’ve seen the last 5 years. The 2nd half is encouraging in that we moved the ball. Defense for stops and forced a turnover. The FG call and goal line fumbles will likely haunt us when we finish 9-8 and miss the playoffs.

      I would have not fumbled at the 1-yard line.

      We are in AFC. SEA is inferior team. Never should have lost to this team.

      This will hurt. If we miss playoff's, coaching staff and GM should be fired.

        Will you step up and lead this team?

          The Chefs, Bills, Chuggs, and other teams that are put together can probably get away with it.

          new coach, new QB, new DC, with a recent history of middling to low end performance organizationally… THIS TEAM SHOULD HAVE MADE THe MOST OF PRESEASON REPS…

          they looked very sloppy and it cost them a win.

          Just hope it isn’t 0-3, 0-4 before we’re “regular season ready”… 😩

            I'm not completely surprised we lost. I just didn't know anything about this team after training camp and preseason.
            • one game into the season we know the defense still doesn't cover the TE and they are not very deep.
            • The special teams are still Special ed. IMO the special teams only get better when the team gets deeper in talent. This shit show gets worse as the injury bug sets in.
            • the redzone offense is reflective of an inexperienced coaching staff. Maybe they will get better? Shotgun running plays at the goaline are for college and high school football.
            • the QB is better. If you can't see this, there's no hope for you.
            • this was a 7-10 team last year. Fungio was only part of the problem.

              I thought of that while watching the preseason games. It was an uneasy feeling. Now I know why.

                Something to think about.....Russel Wilson spent MORE TIME practicing how he would look coming out of the tunnel, than he spent on the field working with all new players and system and coaches in the pre season.

                  That didn't cost them anything. The offense was fine. The defense was complete dog shit in coverage for 3 quarters. Throw in no punts forced until the 4th quarter, a pile of 15 yard penalties after good plays, getting stopped on the goal and not even forcing Seattle to start at the .5 yard line is the reason they lost. 10 play 3 weeks ago wouldn't have made one bit of difference. I called it yesterday fans were going to jump to this excuse today but not even mention how teams played starters started slow too. BTW Seattle players were gassed in the 4th. Pete challenged the Albert O play for a long time out. He knew it wasn't getting overturned. Just too many mistakes and the stars lining up like stripped balls going 2 out of 3 to Seattle. Penalties were huge against Denver. Hard to tell if they were tick tack in person but it seemed like it. My KC friend said there were some weak ones.

                    I'm going to assume it was partly a preseason problem. For as badly as we played it was a 1 pt loss. So disappointed in the defense. I'm going to hope Hackett buckles down this week and gets those guys under control..all those penalties, damn. At least the QB is better, probably wondering what he got himself into. I'm hoping to see improvement. I have to.

                      Say what you will about training camp in Greeley, but in those days the team came into that first game in a foul mood. 😂

                        I’m surprised he isn’t already coaching in the league somewhere. You know, with his vast knowledge of the game, and all.

                          Well said. I am more mad at Evero than I am Hackett right now. What took so long to figure out Geno Smith? He looked All World out there. Way too many mistakes is for sure an inexperience coaching staff. But it’s up to Hackett to hold those guys accountable. We’ll eventually find out if he does.

                          But a lot of positives. 433 yds to 253 in a hostile environment. 103 yds rushing with a 5.2 yds a carry. There is hope so I’m not as worried as I would be if we looked like last years offense. It’s most of these coaches first game at their position, so of course they have to look within to correct these mistakes.

                            Evero got out-game planned by Seattle to start the game, for sure -- the 1st half defense was non-existent, and Geno Smith looked like he was throwing against air.

                            On the positive side, Evero made some very good halftime adjustments, and we held them scoreless in the second half, forced a turnover, produced multiple sacks, and made them punt twice. So, I think that's very promising -- he just needs to go back and see why he was suckered so badly by Seattle in quarters 1 and 2.

                            The defense did enough to win the game (17 points allowed), it was the offense that let us down.

                              There is no way Evero would have turned down the lack of production the Seattle WRs had. I highly doubt they had 100 yards between the Goodwin, Metcalf and Lockett. Surtain basically shut down Metcalf. The one holding call seemed tick tack but I would have to rewatch.

                              Where he screwed up was letting the RBs and TE run completely uncovered. Geno only hit 2 or maybe 3 of those throws or it would have been real bad.

                              Side note what is bad is KC would have put up 40 as Mahomes wouldn't miss a lot of those blown coverages.

                                Interestingly, the bad run defense and running game we saw in preseason didn’t translate at all. People worried the team wouldn’t be physically ready and get pushed around but that wasn’t an issue. The run defense was mostly great tonight, Penny made a few individually great plays to shed tackles close to the LOS, that’s what good backs do. And the outside zone/boot game offensively was very effective.

                                Did anyone else think Darrell Taylor was offsides like 500 times?

                                  someone please show a replay of the play where Williams got blown up on the last drive

                                  it looked liked the seattle defender was way offsides

                                    I think I heard Dom Capers is in the booth, and telling Evero what’s happening on the ground. If that’s true, I really don’t know how helpful he is. Besides being real old by now, I never really cared for him as GB defensive coordinator. I know he just a consultant, but I’m not sure how much of an effective mentor he is.

                                    It takes a while for rookie coordinators to get their bearings, but unfortunately the NFL has no patience. He has to get up to speed by Sunday.

                                          Forgot Alex Singleton just missed Geno Smith on what would have been a drive ending sack on a perfect blitz. Instead it turns into a TD and a lead they held onto the rest of the game. There’s almost no way Seattle wins the game if Singleton doesn’t inexplicably miss Geno.

                                          Holy shit what a stupid L
