Seahawks Notebook: Seahawks vs Giants
After seeing signs of an offensive heartbeat in the second half against Atlanta, the Seahawks now face the daunting task of traveling across the country to face a Giants team that’s 6-1 all-time against the Seahawks in the Meadowlands.
The travel concerns are just the tip of the iceberg for the Seahawks. There are still numerous questions surrounding this football team that needs to be answered.
For Pete Carroll and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, the questions that surround the offense are more tied to whether or not the offense can carry over some of the momentum that was gained during the near comeback against Atlanta.
And for a team like Seattle who struggles to find balance and consistency, a small thing like momentum could end up paying big dividends.
What are those dividends exactly? It’s more then just a win. That is obviously the end result if everything goes as planned.
A victory in New York will start and finish with the play of QB Tarvaris Jackson.
Which QB will we be seeing take the field on Sunday?
The guy who posted career numbers, 25-38, 319 Yrds, 3 TD’s, 2 INT’s, 8.4 YPA, and a 65.8 Com%, and almost engineered a second half comeback against Atlanta. Or will we be getting the guy who was less then pedestrian, 59-97, 527 Yrds, 2 TD’s, 2 INT’s, 61.3 Com%, and a 5.4 YPA, in the seasons first three games?
Momentum will be greatly dictated by whether or not Tarvaris possesses the ability to maintain the level of play that was displayed last week.
Inside The Numbers:
To say the Seahawks cannot travel east is a gross understatement. Over the last three seasons, the Seahawks are 0-6 versus NFC East opposition, being outscored 203-63.
That’s an average score of 33-10. They have dropped 11 of their last 12 in the eastern time zone. Not only are the Seahawks 1-6 vs the Giants all-time at the meadowlands, but they are a combined 6-11, while losing their last 10 games in New York.
News, Notes, and Injuries:
WR Mike Williams has been listed as questionable after suffering a concussion last week vs Atlanta. No word yet on Williams has passed the mandatory concussions test needed to be cleared.
