I’ll say it up front. I’m not sure whether to cheer because the Seattle Seahawks won, or cry because we almost lost to the second worst team in the league. Even though we escaped with a win in overtime, and let’s be honest, we barely escaped, there are several lessons to be learned from Sunday’s game.

The Beast is still alive! Marshawn Lynch had his second 100 yard rushing game of the season with 125 yards on 21 carries. When the Seahawks returned to the rushing game and let Lynch loose, the offense picked up momentum. The coaching staff needs to get back to what has made the Seahawks successful – power running.
