[quote]When you routinely waste first downs by running up the middle [/quote]
I don't disagree that we should pass it more on first down, but keep in mind we have less success passing the ball in first down than running it. Here are our first down passes yesterday:

[quote]With the exception of Perrilloux being more stoutly built they are very similar in terms of talent, arm and instincts.[/quote]
Disagree. Perrilloux was an athlete, but not as much as Harris is and not in the same way. Perrilloux's instincts in HS were top. He was a 4.75 guy, but he had a...

[quote]The backup doesn't get benched he gets taken out. [/quote]
Well think of it this way, if a backup RB or WR is low enough in the pecking order that they are only getting a few plays here and there, are you really going to increase their playing time if they start making mental mistakes? No...

[quote]Hasn't Miles benched running backs for fumbling during his 10 seasons? Sometimes putting them in the dog house for a couple of weeks.
I was wondering why he didn't follow this rule after Jenning's fumble in the first quarter yesterday?

Jennings starting the game can be an OK decision for the team, if you want to alleviate pressure from Harris and just bring him in a little later. But clearly the right thing right now is for Harris to get the most snaps, one way or another....

[quote]I think Les tells Cam to keep it conservative and not air it out. We run the same plays over and over year to year with different offensive coordinators.[/quote]
How do you explain 2 1,000 yard WRs last year? Les had his best statistical RB ever last year, and yet we still threw the ball ...

Even if that's true, and I've heard no evidence of that at Seahwaks games, that's not the key. Been to a few Seahawks Saints games up here, and if you ever find yourself in that stadium, listen to how much noise a small portion of the c...

No one got a ton of carries in 2006, no one needed to be a workhorse with that QB/WR combination.
Hester was used to perfection in 2007. Hard to argue with the results he got, even if Keiland was the more dynamic runner.
Williams probably ...

Booty's number 1 trait was his ability to get separation on the push off and a sharp cut; he had to do that because he didn't have the burners. (For a NFL comparison t...

Turnovers are nearly as important as scoring plays. To ignore them because they are "one stat" isn't far off from ignoring TDs because they are "one stat." In both years the offense was amazing and the defense was vulnerable more often than one would like. But in 2009, the turnovers won games eve...

Action isn't anti-Star Trek, but has there been enough of Roddenberry's vision in the movies? I like the movies a lot, but where is the exploration? Traditionally, Star Trek is about exploration of the universe and of the human condition.
