The Seattle Seahawks played an ugly game and Twitter reacted – Field Gulls

Filed under:
The Seattle Seahawks took the field Thursday night to play the Chicago Bears in their second preseason game, and the results were not pretty. It’s only preseason, but the Hawks allowed the Bears to jump out to a 24-0 lead before finally putting points on the board with a late third quarter field goal.
Whether it was a sputtering offense derailed by penalties and sacks, or a defense that again demonstrated issues with pursuit angles and tackling, it was an ugly game for Seattle.
Things should, of course, change when the starters return to the field once the games begin to count. However, even DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, Jordyn Brooks, Will Dissly, Quandre Diggs and Jamal Adams may not be enough considering the opponents also rested many of their starters.
In any case, whether the first two preseason games change one’s outlook for the 2022 season or not, at the end of the day the showing against the Bears Thursday was ugly, and Twitter enjoyed the train wreck.
Many national analysts say the Bears are the worst team in the NFL. If that is indeed the case, what the hell is Seattle?
Worst of all, the Bears are terrible.
The Seahawks can’t even outscore the Mariners tonight.

The M’s have the night off.
If you like three-and-outs and pee wee league caliber special teams play, there’s a treat for you at Lumen Field.
Worse, there’s a wave in progress. https://t.co/iLoSwqrwBx
That first half was just very bad football. Missed tackles, dropped passes, missed throws, penalties, a muffed punt for a touchdown, a missed field goal. Like, Pete might be in the locker room spitting gum at everybody right now.
The wave has begun. It is officially the most exciting part of the game so far.
Bears 24, Seahawks 0, early 3Q.

The locals aren’t thrilled.
That’s the fifth penalty tonight on LT Charles Cross, the Seahawks’ first-round pick. Four false starts and an illegal hands to the face.
You can take the Seahawks out of Germain Ifedi but you can’t take the Germain Ifedi out of the Seahawks send tweet
Whew, this game is something

But this is a team-centric issue. Tackling form and pursuit angles have been subpar.
Seahawks have been playing more first-team/rotational/projected rotational guys than other teams, I suspect. Quite a few of them have looked scarily bad through 1.5 preseason games.
Nearing halftime of preseason game 2 and we’re already getting a think piece on Pete Carroll’s coaching on the 2022 #Seahawks
People say this is like 2011 all over again.

This is 2009.
That’s five punts and a missed field goal in six possessions for Seattle. But again, Geno Smith is being victimized by drops. Bo Melton had one on that last drive. Smith’s throw the play before went off DeeJay Dallas’ hand, though it was wide. Probably more on Smith than Dallas. https://t.co/KUOYodoIja

Soon #Seahawks will play regular season defenses
Let’s get the Seahawks on the schedule @packers
Yea… This team is picking top 10 for sure next year lol
I’m not one for preseason hot takes but damn that was a heinous half of football from the #Seahawks.
And, well, that’s enough to get the point across. It started ugly and it stayed ugly, finishing up with an ugly final score of 27-11.
