NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Bryan McFarlane gives you the reasons why the Seahawks were NOT able to handle the Falcons this past Sunday. He says Pete Carroll has a great thing going and the next few seasons are sure to be entertaining and very successful. But Sunday nobody stepped up in Chris Clemons absence. The Seattle pass rush was non-existant. Matt Ryan had to much time. Where was Bruce Irvin? Sigh…
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Clinton Bell tells us what went wrong for the Seahawks against the Miami Dolphins. Well besides being on the road, and in the Eastern time zone, the Seahawks defense blew this one for us. Two scoring drives in the final six minutes ruined a damn good performance by Russell Wilson, and the TD return by Leon Washington. Thanks boys.
NWSB Insider and Oregon Ducks blogger Bryant Knox is here to bring us his What Went Wrong UO report. The Ducks’ offense had been one of the most elite all season, yet they struggled mightily in both the rushing and passing games against the Stanford Cardinal. Neither Kenjon Barner nor Marcus Mariota were able to play up to their own standards. The biggest problem, though? Kicking, kicking, kicking.
NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougars blogger Jordin Ereth gives us his take in his weekly What Went Wrong post following the BIG loss by the Cougs to the Arizona State Sun Devils. This season just seems to go from bad to worse. Just when there seemed to be a light at the end of the tunnel in the UCLA game, the Sun Devils came and turned it out. An embarrassing loss to a weak team. Now its WSU vs. UW with the 2012 Apple Cup on the line.
NWSB Insider and WSU Cougars blogger Britton Ransford is here to bring us another What Went Wrong WSU report. The Cougars were penalized nine times for 103 yards — most likely frustration fouls for their terrible first half performance. At halftime, Jim Mora’s UCLA Bruins led Mike Leach’s Cougs 37-7.
During any losing week, NWSB Insider and Oregon St. Beavers football blogger Rick Stella will stop by and bring you his What Went Wrong With The Beavs piece. The slow start, coupled with the disappointing 4th quarter, ultimately doomed the Beavers on Saturday. It’s hard to blame the game completely on Cody Vaz’s errors, but it has started some grumblings among fans, and the clamoring for Sean Mannion’s return could take place any day now.
NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougars blogger Jordin Ereth gives us his take in his weekly What Went Wrong post following the BIG loss by the Cougs to the Utah Utes. The tumultuous season the Washington State Cougars have had was recently given an exclamation point with a 49-6 ass-kicking from the Utes. The most effort that was shown all day was Mike Leach sprinting out onto the field to call a timeout with 12 seconds left, simply to refrain from going scoreless for the first time in his career.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Alistair Corp tells us to him the following things went wrong for the Hawks on Sunday versus the Detroit Lions. An offense that boasts Matt Stafford, Calvin Johnson, Brandon Pettigrew and Titus Young isn’t going to be one you want to face for an extensive amount of time. The Seahawks D had no answer. Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman weren’t at their best.
During any losing week NWSB Insider and Oregon St. Beavers football blogger Rick Stella will stop by and bring you his what went wrong with the Beavs piece. Since Sean Mannion got enough flack for his sub-par performance, he feels that there were some positives which can be taken away from Saturday’s game in Seattle. The defense, once again, played lights out and did as good a job as they could with the field position the offense put them in.
NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Alistair Corp tells us to him the following things went wrong for the Hawks on Thursday versus the San Francisco 49ers. Dropped passes have once again hindered the Seahawks offense, and any chances of winning this game. Defense kept it close, but gave up monster yardage to Frank Gore. Special teams didn’t do their part either, especially return specialist Leon Washington.
