    Vaz is ok, Welker doesn't seem that bad, just a sprained ankle.

    And positive news on Wolfe, nothing more than that. He flew back with the team.

    Champ, I worry about a lot, his injury.

    Only concerned with the injuries especially to Wolfe/Champ.

    That may be the toughest defense we will see all year and the offense moved up and down the field with ease. OL gave Manning plenty of time to throw.

    Running game was meh but Sea has a really good Front 7.

    Defense is a little concerning, mainly pass rush but it was a vanilla defense.
    Everybody is going nuts over this game, Seattle fans think it means they will win the Super Bowl.
    Them and some of the fans on this site forget how pointless preseason is. The teams don't even run the plays from the playbook their using for the season. Pretty much practice game plays vs another team. It's all vanilla.

    Like the OP said with the cars. We didn't show up trying to play like it matter.

    The only concern for me is the injuries. Pete Carroll plays preseason games like they are real games. He knows other teams don't, so he has a better chance of winning, which feeds his huge ego. So though we didn't play like it matter, Seattle did play like it matter.

    This is exactly right. The only concern at this point is the injuries. But the encouraging thing is it seems guys like Malik Jackson are really stepping up. I hope and pray that these injuries will pan out to be nothing major.

    And you are spot on about the vanilla defense. There were no exotic blitzes, just a base 4-3 most of the time.

    Offense was the same way. Nothing to flashy or exotic. We will see the good stuff on both sides of the ball come week 1.

    Why the knee jerk reactions?

    I've been reading post after post in thread after thread. Some people are already throwing in the towel and we haven't even started the season.
    Player (insert any name here) is trash, Elway isn't building a team right blah blah blah.
    Listen, we are coming of a great season. A season like we haven't seen in a very long time. All these mistakes are correctable and correcting them in the preaseason is the idea.
    This team has gotten younger and we have a lot of new pieces. Those pieces will find their places and we will be great. Mark my words. The talent is there.
    My son had his first football game for the year this past Friday. It was only a tune up scrimmage. What I noticed is that we played a VERY vanilla game, on both sides of the ball. Defense, which he plays a 5 tech, played a base goalline the entire game to counter the read option. The offense played simple running plays, simple sweeps and traps. My point is, we have a Ferrari for an offense, we are showing up in a Chevette (for those that remember those cars!!) which I'm with. Same with defense. We aren't showing anything except a base look. When the season starts, we will unleash the beast.
    So stop worrying people. We will be fine.
