Look, it was about time they got a break and besides, as a literary genre it is a bit self-limiting, don’t cha think? Also, it’s Thanksgiving and we are supposed to think about the less fortunate. Or was that Arbour Day? I get things mixed up here and there. Fear not, we’ll have some ‘psychopath on hobo action’ soon enough but for now we’ll have to content ourselves with the last game of the night on offer.
TO THE GAME!
-Give Brian Shottenheimer some credit for adjusting the Seahawks offensive identity. That ‘we will run you into the ground’ mentality was wearing a bit thin and became increasingly easy to game plan for. (it also made my ‘no-brainer’ Chris Carson pick-you know he’s going to get all kinds of touches if he’s healthy-look a bit sillier than I’d thought).
-Yeah, the team that ran the 9th-most run plays last year has now dropped all the way to 22nd.
-Vastly under-appreciated qb Wilson took the task to heart and has responded with a performance through the first quarter of the season that not many saw coming. Will he cook for Zeke? The question remains unanswered.
-Speaking of qb’s, what’s up with Kirkie? His PFF passing grade thru the first three quarters of each game is 66.5 but then he revs it up to 87.1 in the fourth. It’s attributed to the team having to play catchup but there’s something else going on as well.
-That thing is that he leads the league in average depth of target at 12.1, meaning he makes his longer strikes count but they come in the last 12 minutes of the game. Maybe do something earlier, guy who draws up the plays?
Do what you do best, just try to not get it on your monitor.
