Seattle-Russell Wilson’s 2020 season started with a record touchdown speed and talked about his first professional MVP award. It sounded suddenly and raised a question: What happened to the offense of the quarterback and the high-scoring Seattle Seahawks that could not be stopped in the first two months?
Wilson’s struggle culminated on Saturday. The Seahawks lost to the Los Angeles Rams on an empty lumen field and lost 30-20 in the wild card round, breaking the third longest NFL playoff history. The home game winning streak. Since the 2004 season, the Seahawks have never lost a home playoff game, and before Saturday under Pete Carroll (Pete Carroll) made six attempts, all won.
“I hate this feeling,”
Wilson threw for 174 yards, scored two touchdowns, and was intercepted by Ramsay. According to ESPN Stats & Information research, his 27.11 pass completion rate was 40.7%, the second lowest of his career, and his 17.6 Total QBR was his worst in 16 playoff games.
Even though he was on the border for most of the second half, even if Aaron Donald (Aaron Donald) was on the sidelines, half of his conceded goals were fired or duressed to no avail. The Rams’ 50% pressure rate is the highest pressure Wilson has faced this season and the second highest pressure he has faced in the playoffs. He was fired five times.
Wilson said: “Obviously, they did a good job in front. They let me several times.” “I think for us, we just didn’t play the best game. We didn’t do our best to meet our needs. “
Carroll did not miss Wilson’s sixth overall pick in the second season. This was in the process of trying to pass the screen to DK Metcalf. Cornerback Darius Williams read well.
Carroll said in the afternoon talking about Wilson: “I think it’s really difficult.” “They intercepted touchdowns brilliantly. This is an excellent performance of the kid. He scored a goal, which is in this game. A major game, because it has been faintly visible, only 7 points. It was Rose not wrong at all. It was just a good performance for them. But it was difficult. When you rushed like this, you were fired five times, It’s very difficult against that person.”
When the Seahawks beat the Rams 20-9 to win the Western Conference NFC in Week 16, Wilson was also fired five times.
“This is not surprising,” Carroll said. “This is how they play against other people. We need to keep the game like the last game. We keep the game in poor condition. They scored 9 points and we found a way to score 20.”
Wilson contributed an NFL record of 16 touchdown passes in the first four games, and at the same time established himself as the MVP early-season frontrunner. In the first nine weeks, the Seahawks’ offense led the league with an average of 34 points per game, and Wilson led the league with 28 touchdown passes. But in the last eight weeks of the regular season, Seattle’s average scoring average dropped to 22.6 (at the time it was 16th), while Wilson dropped 12 TDs (tied for 13th).
His average attempted ball distance increased from 8.56 yards (fourth) to 6.4 (28). His average passing distance per attempt on Saturday was 6.4 yards.
Carroll regrets that the Seahawks have not adapted better to the way opponents defend their passing in action games, which has traditionally been an important part of Seattle’s offensive success.
Carroll said: “This does not mean that we keep throwing the ball on their heads, just throwing bombs.” “But we created a lot of space in the passing game, throughout the season, after the midpoint, we played It’s too early, we’re very effective, people found the way to stay, just trying to make us bleed, making us have to throw the ball down, maybe we’re really putting more effort for us, and not like us I like to use gears effectively like that.”
Wilson’s 40 touchdown passes and 13 interceptions in the regular season are career highs.
The veteran pointed out that being injured on the offensive line is one of the reasons why the Seahawks struggled after the battle. In the first four games, Duane Brown (Duane Brown), Mike Iupati (Mike Iupati), Ethan Pocic (Ethan Pocic), Damien Lewis (Damien Lewis) and Brandon Shell (Brandon Shell) became their preferred top five, but only once in the second half.
However, Saturday is five again, and with or without Donald, this is not suitable for the Rams defensive line. After Donald left, with more than ten minutes left in the third quarter, the Rams had six pressures and two sacks.
Seven of the nine penalties accepted by the Seahawks were for violations, and five of them were on the offensive line. Seattle broke the messy game late in the fourth quarter, which was a false start-although Lewis had more time when he was checked for injuries on the field-and was eager to get fourth and first games in time. Then the sea eagle charged.
Carroll said that they were discussing drama, and his involvement in it caused delays in the performance. He said that he didn’t mind playing after the penalty because it was initially a consideration.
Wilson threw two of his touchdown passes to Metcalf, once a four-a-side standard pass, but in that game, he only shot 8 goals 18 for 130 yards. According to ESPN statistics and information research, his completion rate under standard pressure is 44.4%, the lowest since the 15th week of the 2017 season against the Rams (44.0%).
The Seahawks finished second in 14 with the third overall pick. With less than 4 minutes left in the third game before their first conversion, they were 8-0. They made 25 attempts and ran for 136 yards.
Carroll said: “I hope we can find more ways to make the ball run slower, slow down and stop them from rushing towards us.” “…When Donald goes out, we want to be in the passing rush. Throwing the ball out in his case, we cannot get enough benefit from it.”
Since 2014, the Seahawks have won 12 regular season games for the first time, and since 2016, the Seahawks have won NFC West for the first time.
Wilson said: “We have a great football team. Don’t get me wrong.” “You can write whatever you want, but the reality is that we have a great football team. I think we have one, but our performance today Not great. That’s the most important thing.”
This marks the second time the Seahawks have been bounced in a wild card round in three seasons. This is the fifth time they have entered the playoffs in the past five times. They did not participate in the NFC Championship.
Carol said: “We will heal, but it is unfortunate because these years are difficult to pass.” “It is difficult to get 12 wins. It is difficult to play the playoffs at home. We have won at home. Many playoff games, and it’s hard to give up one. We won each of them. We have a fanatical, wild, crazy fan base than the playoffs. Today is not what we need. I hope we can have you. That Not an excuse, it’s just misfortune.”
