Darrell Bevell tells Peter King of MMQB about Russell Wilson’s zone read option pass to Ricardo Lockette that ended in a 33-yard touchdown.

The Packers cut the field in half when they decided not to throw Richard Sherman’s way.

The Seahawks missed 12 tackles, more than they whiffed on in any game last season, per Pro Football Focus. Kam Chancellor had 11 tackles, but he also missed three. Pete Carroll said on 710 KIRO today, “Kam Chancellor was just banging folks. He was hitting them. He might’ve missed the strike zone a few times.”

As for Earl Thomas’ poor decisions not to make fair catches, Carroll said, “We will keep working on it to get better.” Thomas did not seem to think he did anything wrong: “I can’t control what happened.”

Hawks Hall of FamersFor those not at the game, here’s a look at the Seahawks’ tribute to their three homegrown Hall of Famers — Steve Largent, Cortez Kennedy and Walter Jones. They also raised the 12th Man flag together before the game. Pretty cool. 

Wright & Avril likely want more than Hawks prefer to pay

KJ and CliffThe week leading up to the start of the NFL season is always prime time for contract extensions, and this year certainly has seen its share.

Quarterback Alex Smith (Kansas City), linebacker Vontaze Burfict (Cincinnati) and defensive linemen J.J. Watt (Houston), Jurrell Casey (Tennessee) and Junior Galette (New Orleans) have all secured big contract extensions in the past week or so. Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton received a huge deal a month ago. And wide receivers Dez Bryant (Dallas) and Michael Crabtree (San Francisco) are reportedly in talks as well.

It’s no surprise that the Seahawks also appear to be in on the action, reportedly exploring extensions for defensive end Cliff Avril and linebacker K.J. Wright.

Seahawks’ schedule keeps getting easier

WelkerThe Seahawks’ schedule just keeps getting easier.

The news that Denver receiver Wes Welker will be suspended for four games, thus missing the Broncos’ game in Seattle in Week 3, is just the latest blow to a Seattle opponent.

While the Hawks appeared to get better at nearly every spot this year, many of their opponents lost key players.

We took a look at the Seahawks’ schedule when it was released in April and projected another 13-3 record. Let’s see what has changed since then:

Offense is poised to explode this season

Pete Carroll and Russell Wilson plan to be clapping about their offense a lot this season (Getty Images)The Seahawks went 13-3 and won the Super Bowl last season despite an offense that was incomplete and out of sync for most of the year.

Imagine what they might end up doing with this spectacular-looking crew.

Nothing about the 2014 offense looks incomplete or out of sync — not after Russell Wilson and company rattled off 11 scoring drives in 13 possessions in the preseason. They had scoring drives of 74, 78, 62, 67, 61, 89 and 83 yards in blowout wins over San Diego and Chicago and finished with an easy four-play, 80-yard touchdown drive in Wilson’s only series against Oakland.

Granted, it was just the preseason, but the Hawks look ready to step on the gas this season and put 2013’s sputtering performance in the rear-view mirror.
