Score Early, Score Often

The Seahawks have a ton of talent, but for some reason they have a difficult time getting going. Too often it feels like the first score is a field goal halfway through the second quarter.

Obviously this is not for lack of desire. It isn’t like the Seahawks take it easy in the first quarter and always plan on coming back in the second half.

It is particularly important for the Seahawks to come out strong on the road. Last week the Seahawks did not score until there was less than two minutes to go in the half.

Would it be too much to ask for the Seahawks to build a nice 14-0 lead after the first quarter? That doesn’t seem terribly unreasonable.
