Former offensive line coach Tom Cable’s firing from the Seattle Seahawks last offseason was met with roaring approval. Over seven seasons https://www.theseahawksfanshop.com , Cable proved himself to be one of the worst position coaches in the NFL, if not the worst. Cable’s replacement in Seattle, Mike Solari, quickly became a favorite of Seahawks fans who were starved for competent line play. And to begin the season, Seattle received that level of play and more, at one point ranking as the most efficient offensive line in the NFL, per Pro Football Focus. However, in November, the Seahawks offensive line of old appeared to return. Russell Wilson was sacked 13 times in November Seahawks Customized Color Rush Jerseys , five more times than he was sacked in weeks 3-8. In December, Wilson was sacked 17 times, including six during Sunday’s victory over the Cardinals. In total, Wilson was sacked 51 times in 2018, topping his previous career high of 45, in 2015. The 51 times Wilson was sacked places him in a tie for third most in the NFL this season, alongside Derek Carr—who, that’s right, was playing behind a line coached by Cable. (Some good news sprinkled into your Victory Monday: Wilson’s previous single season high was 45 sacks Seattle Seahawks T-Shirts , which came in 2015. Wilson broke his single season high for touchdowns and passer rating this season, both of which were previously set in 2015.)Now of course, it wasn’t all bad for Solari’s debut season as Seattle’s offensive line coach. While they entered Week 17 as the 29th ranked line in Football Outsiders’ adjusted sack rate, they were 12th in run blocking. To Pete Carroll and a run first team, that’s likely viewed as a success. The Seahawks will now turn their focus to the Dallas Cowboys, who, in a switch in identity in 2018, have been led by their defense all season. Wilson will need better protection against a defensive front led by DeMarcus Lawrence, if Seattle is to get back on track following Week 17’s mess https://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/hats , and advance to the divisional round. With the offseason having arrived for the Seattle Seahawks and the only meaningful NFL game between now and Labor Day being the Pro Bowl on Sunday, we are working our way through grading the 2018 draft picks for the Hawks. We’ve already taken a stab at grading the first round pick Rashaad Penny and the team’s choice of third round selection Rasheem Green, and so onward we move. I’m sure most fans are expecting me to move through the draft picks in order, but since I hate predictability, I am jumping right to the seventh round today to take a look at the team’s use of the 220th pick in the 2018 draft on quarterback Alex McGough out of Florida International University. McGough was the only member of the 2018 draft class for Seattle who did not wind up on injured reserve (Jamarco Jones) or make the 53 man roster this past season. Instead, after putting up decent numbers during his first two appearances of the preseason against the Los Angeles Chargers and the Indianapolis Colts, McGough had a bit of a rough go of things in the final two preseason matchups against the Minnesota Vikings and the Oakland Raiders. His performances in those two games were shaky enough that on the eve of the season the team traded a 2019 6th round pick to the Green Bay Packers for Brett Hundley rather than go into the 2018 season with McGough as their backup. McGough then spent the entirety of the 2018 season on the practice squad. Then, following the conclusion of the season after the loss in the Wild Card round to the Dallas Cowboys, when the Hawks announced the signing of nine members of the practice squad to future contracts Seattle Seahawks Hoodie , McGough’s name was conspicuously absent from the list. That, of course, led to speculation that he was looking to sign elsewhere to get a better shot at playing or to catch on with the newly formed Aliance of American Football. It didn’t take long for things to play out, as about a week later the Jacksonville Jaguars announced that they had signed McGough to a future contract. Thus, the only question to be answered now is whether it will be Blake Bortles, Cody Kessler or Tanner Lee backing up McGough for the Jags in 2019.
