The Seattle Seahawks figured out just how easy it is to get off track.
After successfully resetting its roster and figuring out a style and method for winning in the first half of the season Youth Uchenna Nwosu Jerseys , Seattle took a major step backward in a loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. The Seahawks had built a winning formula on running the ball, avoiding mistakes on offense and stopping the run on defense. Now, Seattle has to prove it can beat a quality opponent when the script doesn't play out perfectly."We've found ourselves in most of the games we didn't win right there at the end, so close to getting it done," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. "I'm hoping the second half of the season will allow us to finish those games and get the wins that we want and turn this season into a really positive year for us."The 25-17 loss to the Chargers revealed how quickly the Seahawks can lose the style of play that led them to win four of the previous five games. They sit at 4-4, facing a challenging three-game stretch that starts this week with the Los Angeles Rams."I've never looked at this like it's a rebuilding year. (GM) John (Schneider) and I didn't look at this like that. We saw the opportunities to fill the spots and we thought we could keep moving and going," Carroll said. "There's always going to be some growing time and we saw that the first two weeks of the season. As far as expectations, our expectations are higher and that's why we're disappointed that we're not in better shape than we are right now."Seattle still had a chance to force overtime against the Chargers until Russell Wilson's pass for David Moore at the back of the end zone was tipped slightly and fell incomplete on the final play.The Seahawks issues started long before that pass hit the turf.Seattle did not stop the run, giving up 7.3 yards per carry to the Chargers and letting Melvin Gordon run for 113 yards and a touchdown.It did not avoid offensive mistakes. Wilson was sacked four times, with several of those his fault for not getting the ball out or trusting the protection. He also made a critical turnover, throwing an interception that was returned 42 yards for a touchdown by Desmond King in the fourth quarter.And Seattle's own run game was spotty. The Seahawks finished with 154 yards rushing, but starter Chris Carson didn't play the final 2 陆 quarters due to a lingering hip injury. After scoring a touchdown on their opening possession, the Seahawks got just three points out of the next nine drives.The end result was too much reliance on Wilson for a fourth-quarter rally. While Wilson nearly pulled it off, the Seahawks fell to 5-6 at home over the past two seasons and have lost the last five games when Wilson has attempted 30 or more passes dating to last season.Carroll was uncertain the status of Carson or strong safety Bradley McDougald for Sunday's game against the NFC West-leading Rams. Carroll said Carson's hip was a lingering problem coming out of last week's victory over Detroit, and a light week of practice wasn't enough for Carson to handle the load early against the Chargers. Carson had just eight carries, leaving Mike Davis as the primary back. Davis had 15 carries for 62 yards.McDougald didn't play in the second half with a knee injury that Carroll said was "pretty sore" on Monday. McDougald will likely be a very limited participant in practice this week Justin Jones Jerseys Stitched , but Carroll said he was pleased with the performance of backup Delano Hill stepping in for McDougald, who has been one of Seattle's top defensive players this season.NOTES: Carroll said G D.J. Fluker (calf) appeared to be OK. Fluker didn't play late in the game due to the injury and was replaced by C Joey Hunt playing out of position. ... Carroll declined to comment on any speculation about a reunion with DE/LB Bruce Irvin, who was released by Oakland. Irvin spent his first four seasons in Seattle and the Seahawks could use a boost in the pass rush. "I'd prefer not to comment on that right now if you don't mind. Let's wait and see what happens," Carroll said. If you consider Sunday the start of the new week, then here we are.IT’S DRAFT WEEK!This segment of the series breaks into day two as we look at another four prospects that should be targets for..." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteBolts From The BlueBolts From The Blue, a Los Angeles Chargers communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsChargersOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections San Diego Chargers Daily LinksSan Diego Chargers NewsSan Diego Chargers OffseasonSan Diego Chargers HistorySan Diego Chargers HumorFiled under:Latest NewsLos Angeles Chargers NewsChargers OffseasonFour prospects the Chargers should consider in the third roundNew,5commentsPDTShareTweetShareShareFour prospects the Chargers should consider in the third roundPhoto by Hannah Foslien/Getty ImagesIf you consider Sunday the start of the new week, then here we are.IT’S DRAFT WEEK!This segment of the series breaks into day two as we look at another four prospects that should be targets for Tom Telesco and his staff once round three rolls around. Last year, the Chargers took defensive tackle Justin Jones in the third. The year before, they took offensive guard Dan Feeney. Both players saw significant playing-time in their rookie seasons and Feeney went on to secure a starting position heading into last year.Due to some injuries at the end of 2018, Jones saw his time on the field spikeand he saw the majority of his reps coming against the Ravens and the Patriots in the playoffs.This is a round that Telesco has found success in over the last few years and this draft sets up for the middle rounds to be absolutely chalk-full of talent.Here’s to hoping the trend continues.DT Khalen Saunders - Western IllinoisEvery year, there is always one or two players from the FCS that skyrockets up draft boards from the end of the season right up to the NFL Draft. This year, one of those players is Saunders who started to really catch the eye of scouts once a video of the 320-pound defender doing a back-flip went viral.The four-year contributor for the Leathernecks enjoyed a solid career that was topped off with an All-America nod following his senior season, where he also received an invite to this year’s Senior Bowl.In his final two seasons, Saunders combined for 99 tackles and 12 sacks. He was used all over the place in WIU’s 3-4 front, and I mean everywhere. Against North Dakota State Youth Rayshawn Jenkins Jerseys , a.k.a the Alabama of the FCS, Saunders was used as a stand-up edge rusher on one particular third-down. At first, you’d think this this was a joke, until Saunders blows right by the offensive tackle and brings down their quarterback in the blink of an eye.You don’t see those types of movements skills from a guy who is 320+ pounds. He also showed that athleticism at the combine, posting a 5.01 forty with a 30.5-inch vertical and respectable 4.62 seconds in the short shuttle.The biggest knock on Saunders is his “squatty” frame and lack of arm length. Scouts have him docked for a lack of anchor at the point of attack which likely keeps him from playing a lot of nose tackle at the next level. His quickness and athleticism should keep him in a heavy rotation around the 3-technique where he just needs to focus on causing havoc in a single gap.CB Lonnie Johnson, Jr. - KentuckyThe University of Kentucky had all four of it’s starting defensive backs at the Senior Bowl this past January. Out of all four, Johnson has been able to do the most for his draft stock as he’s firmly placed himself into the day two conversation after being fairly quiet prospect prior to March.Johnson went the JUCO route out of high-school where he enjoyed an impressive 2015 season for Garden City Community College (Kansas). He totaled 35 tackles, five interceptions and a fumble recovery. The following year, he actively chose to sit out of football to focus on academics. That didn’t stop him from being named the No. 2 overall safety at the JUCO level and No. 43 overall player.Arriving at Kentucky, he made the switch to cornerback where his 6-foot-3 range made him a tough draw in the SEC. In his first year on campus, he amassed 41 tackles, 3 tackles-for-loss, one sacks, five pass break-ups, and even blocked two kicks. In his final season, Johnson had just 21 total stops Youth Craig Mager Jerseys , four pass-break-ups, his lone career interception, and a forced fumble.When looking at the numbers, Johnson doesn’t look like the other top cornerback prospects from a production standpoint, but that just tells you how much he has impressed this offseason. His height, combined with his lean 206-pound frame, makes it easy to believe that Johnson may be on the Charger’s radar as they do have a thing for taller, rangier cornerbacks.LB Blake Cashman - MinnesotaSome guys shoot up draft boards due to all-star game performances, some impress in interviews and private workouts, but some make themselves bunch of money by blowing up the NFL Combine in March. This year, Cashman is one of those guys.At 6-foot-2 and 235 pounds, Cashman ran a 4.50 forty yard dash, placing him third behind top prospects Devin White and Devin Bush. He excelled through the rest of gauntlet of tests, posting a 37.5-inch vertical, a 121-inch broad, a 6.95 3-cone Youth Derek Watt Jerseys , and a 4.12 short shuttle.As a former walk-on, it took two years for Cashman to earn his scholarship and that chip on his shoulder has stayed massive throughout his entire career. After being a key reserve for the first three years at Minnesota, Cashman quieted all the doubters as he was name thirs team All-Big 10 after collecting 104 tackles, 15 tackles-for-loss, 2.5 sacks and a touchdown off a fumble recovery.NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein had Cashman as a projected fifth or sixth-round pick prior to the combine. After recent events, I wouldn’t be surprised if the former Golden Gopher was off the board before the Chargers pick in the third round.OT Tytus Howard - Alabama StateIt feels like every guy on this list was a fast riser at some point or another this offseason and Howard is no different.After starting his 2018 season with a game against Auburn, Howard was able to showcase his abilities against some of the top talent in the toughest conference in the country. His play the rest of season kept him within the eyes of scouts which eventually led to his invitation to the Senior Bowl.Coming from an HBCU to the top all-star showcase, skeptics had every right to still be wary of the right tackle who went into college as a 225-pound tight end prospect.He did more than enough to prove he belonged which has coincided with Howard being mocked as high as the late first round.The former prep quarterback transformed himself into a now daunting 6-foot-5, 325-pound right tackle with the athleticism to match his position switch. His 5.05 forty was among the tops at his position which is really moving for someone carrying around all that mass.Howard may not be a starter in year one, especially if Coach Lynn continues to prefer Tevi over guys with more upside at the position. At any rate, he isn’t so raw as to consider him a “project” but he is a prospect with the kind of potential any offensive line coach would want in a young tackle.
