What about that D ?

Brown was solid and he put us in alignment well before snap

Wynn had a good game though; he drew a holding penalty (and had GREAT contain on that play) and got in the backfield a few times, just missing a sack (which Hubbard got, I believe).
The d line as a whole played fantastic. Just that 1 play we didnt have outside contain and it cost us unfortunately.

Dunlap, Atkins, and Hubbard looked great. Atkins didn't get sacks, but man does he flush the QB to guys who do.

IF Lawson gets going...our defense could be special.

Brown and Vigil looked decent too.

The secondary was the weakest link today. Not that they were terrible. Just not as stellar as the front 6/7.

WJax twice had to turn his head/get an arm up (and didn't) and even though it was more on Bates, he WAS Lockett's man on the TD.

I need to ask, did anyone REALLY expect us to be absolutely terrible? We've seen these same guys (and some worse) rank as high as 2nd in defense, recently too.

I'm an optimistic guy, but I expect them to be near lights-out for the rest of the year and I never doubted their abilities for a second.

It has only been one game, but I expect a top 15 year (ranks-wise) for our D.


I gotta admit Truck....I thought Carson would punish us. I felt good about the O, but wary of the D. They way outplayed my expectations. Now, that's not to say I didn't expect improvement, but this much better than I anticipated.

One thing I noticed is how well disciplined the DEs played. Seattle’s line kept rolling one way and Wilson would roll out the other way, but he was always met by one of our DEs. Reassuring to see them play well in a tough environment.


That was the thing that impressed me most about them today.... discipline.
