Will the Thrill
How about that 4th round Husky product Will Dissly? Holy smokes he was something else! Yes, he only had three receptions but those three catches resulted in 105 yards and the Hawks first touchdown of the year. He was enormous.
For a guy that’s primarily a blocker, on his touchdown catch, he certainly looked like a receiver. It was a well-timed route that the tight end and his quarterback made look like an easy pitch and catch. On his second reception, Dissly busted a big run after he made the catch to take the ball inside the 10, a 66-yard play. Who knew that Dissly could run so well in the open field?
O-Line a sore spot
The offensive line played better on the run than the pass, but not that much. Russell Wilson got sacked on the Seahawks first offensive play. Adding insult to injury, the sack came from a defensive back, Darian Stewart. It happened again in the fourth quarter when Chris Harris Jr., a cornerback, sacked Wilson.
Trying to block Von Miller is no easy task. When the Seahawks couldn’t handle the former Super Bowl MVP, he made them pay. Seattle’s price was three sacks and two forced fumbles.
Many times Wilson had to throw either on the run or from his heels as the pocket closed on him quickly. When they were able to give him time, good things happened.
