Seahawks worried about attacking after 6 quarters of failure

RENTON, Washington (AFP) – Concerns over the Seattle Seahawks’ entry into the season have centered on the offensive.

Sunday provided an example of why these concerns are legitimate. The Seahawks’ struggles continued after an unproductive second half during their season-opening win over Denver.

Perhaps Seattle’s 27-7 loss to San Francisco should have been expected. After coming off the emotional peak by defeating the Broncos and Russell Wilson on his return to Seattle, disappointment was likely.

Regardless of Seattle’s emotional state, crime has obvious problems. Seattle hasn’t scored an offensive point since the second quarter of the opener. Running game is mostly non-existent. Geno Smith’s quarterback performance was serviceable, but it also lacked the big plays that the Wilson-era Seahawks relied on.

And when Seattle finally put together an uninterrupted campaign in the second quarter against the 49ers, the baffling decision to call in a pass by running back DeeJay Dallas exploded on the Seahawks and ended up intercepting the end zone.
